My pleasure. I enjoyed your songs :) They have a 'folksie' feel to them (in a good way). I had trouble with Ptaafs - not the song, but the volume, which was really low.

First of all, thanks for checking them out. Secondly, thanks for the 'folksie' comment since I've always wanted them to have a folk/alt-country sort of feel. And Ptaafs (Precious Time and a False Smile) has a very low volume. I need to re-record that song, and with an acoustic guitar or in a multi-track sort of version. Ptaafs has gone through several changes since I wrote it when I was 18, and now I'm 28. You never know when a song is evetually finished. I guess the smae happens with a short-story or a novel. As J.L. Borges (An Argentinean writer) once said: '...someday you'll have to publish...'
Have you ever read Borges?

Well, thanks again for the comment, Jon.
Regards,
Bruno

Mr. Kollin seems like such a sweet, thoughtful guy.

This Worldcon membership really was a pretty happy bunch, overall. And Montreal is gorgeous.

You know I've mentioned before that I've been in a funk. Think I'm starting to come out of it.

Found the links to "Weaving Writing Into a Full Life" and "The Giant Butt-kicking..." enjoyable and helpful :)
