  1. This is brilliant! I love this! It combines music and writing and imagination and creativity and holy crap this is awesome. *ahem* composing myself now. You do the coolest things on your blog. I’m going to skip over to Lance’s and check this out, but I’ll probably be too chicken to try. But you rock!
