Alan Parsons Loves Me

I've been away from the tubes of the internet lately. It's mostly because I've been busy with the usual school stuff, but also because the iPod has been fulfilling my technology addiction, thus replacing blogging.

I'm back now, though. You can thank Alan Parsons for that. For those who don't know, Parsons is a big shot music engineer, who worked on such kickass albums as Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon, The Beatles' Abbey Road, and I think he was tangentially related to The Alan Parsons Project. You see, I checked my email today, and it said that Alan Parsons wanted to add me to his Myspace friends. I recognized the name, and thought it was funny that someone would so blatantly name themselves after another person.

But no, BEHOLD: The real Alan Parsons wants to be my friend!

Finally, something mildly interesting to blog about. I realize that there are plenty of famous people on Myspace, and it's probably just their hired help doing this, using Myspace as a promotional tool, but it's still pretty fun that they sought me out, for whatever reason. Probably because The Crystal Method is also on my friends list there (I put them there), and Parsons is doing some project with TCM.

Speaking of which, I listened to them on my iPod just today. You can see this if you visit creepy stalker-friendly Last.fm, that lets you see everything I listen to. Small world. (?)

Ahh yes, the beauty of the internet, connecting everybody and everything.

Has he sent you one of those gay-ass questionnaires, yet?

1 Are you in love?
2. Have you ever cheated...

My only myspace friends right now are Butchie and the guy that they automatically give you as a friend when you join. Don't have time to fill in all that stuff.
