You guys made it over okay? Whew.
So as you can see, this is my blog’s new home! I’ve imported all the posts from the old blog, but since some came over a little funny, and WordPress helpfully published a lot of drafts that were never meant to be published, I bulk-privatized a lot of posts, and I’ll be painstakingly going through and republishing them later. Sigh.
Things are still a little messy around here, so let me know if there are any problems!
It’s a good time for my ego—one of my friends (hi, Gina!) surprised me by naming me as one of 10 American Artists You Need to Follow in an article on pencils.com. Since then I’ve been busy going to VIP soirees in a private limo after long days of schmoozing with celebrities.
Okay, just kidding. I was totally schmoozing with celebrities long before that.
Bah, who am I kidding? Seriously though, it’s always quite humbling to be recognized, and the nice messages I’ve been getting as a result are like the very encouraging cherry on top of the sundae of recognition in this crazy angry world. I’m also very honored to be listed right alongside a fashion director from Say Yes to the Dress.
So…bow before me, you plebeians! For I am now an American artist to follow! And speaking of following, you should follow me on Twitter because I routinely tweet fascinating and witty insights on life.
Okay, I might have been kidding about the fascinating and witty insights. Gee, I’m full of tricks today! But you should still follow me, because saying you were a fan of me before I was über-famous will give you some serious hipster cred.
(Oh, and like my fanpage on Facebook! This blog post is not shamelessly self-promotional in any way.)
So…hey guys! You know that time I totally talked a reporter’s ear off? Well somehow that turned into an article about Equality Within Reach!
I’m pretty psyched that site is getting more publicity (particularly cause I’m lazy and I want to spend my energy practicing, working on that album I said was totally going to come out this summer, and reading every article on Cracked). I’m also loving (and by loving, I mean my soul is 20% sad) the situational irony that the first time I’m appearing in any sort of news, it has to do with something not related to piano in any way.
But still! My project is being covered by Canadian media, and it’s so controversial that I can’t even bear to read the stupid comments! WHOOHOO!
(Seriously though, in fifty or a hundred or two hundred years our descendants* are going to look back on these years as being very un-egalitarian and that makes me ashamed! The prevalence of racism and homophobia, as well as the insidiousness of anti-woman ideas in our society, make me very sad indeed. It’s 2012, shouldn’t we be making rocket ships to take us to our intergalactic colonies, instead of squabbling over whether people should be respected?)
Ahem. Anyway, read the article; I suppose it’s some sort of life accomplishment? Do I get to level up now?
*That is, if global warming hasn’t wiped out the human race.
