I came across the below comment on my recent appearance at Columbia College:
After reading it, I realized that re-printing this comment allows me to (1) support Ric's interpretation of the vision driving "This Blog Will Change Your Life" - which is important because his interpretation is as valid as anyone's, including mine and (2) further fulfill my two initial and previously unidentified, though most obvious, goals for this blog:
(a) celebrating Lucky Man and my own rampant narcissism in the ongoing fashion that few platforms allow for quite like the internet and blogging, and
(b) championing potentially underexposed artists and writers, their work and blogs whether they want me to or not.
So, love me unconditionally, buy Lucky Man, repeatedly if needed - it makes a great gift, read "This Blog Will Change Your Life" religiously, and then check out Ric's new blog as well - http://sheffieldschicago.blogspot.com/.
Go Ric and good luck.
