  1. Thanks, as always, gentlemen…for your contributions and for boosting the bandwidth, John! Please do check out the October Music links, too…some lovely stuff (and a somewhat more manageable less of it, as I’ve not been quite so ambitious at cross-sectioning the friends of friends there so much; Kate Laity’s “I Put a Spell on You” pile or Jim C.’s Philly Joe Jones Dracula/Lenny Bruce jazz pastiche are worth the effort by themselves, as are many others). Meanwhile: Beatling:

    • Many thanks for the thanks, Todd . . . not that my efforts increase your bandwidth much, alas.

      I had a little play the other day on that post of Kate’s you mention.
