Mason Currey, on top of having one of the coolest names I've come across in recent memory, you also have created my single favorite blog on creative rituals. You should know that I have bookmarked "Daily Routines" on four of my computers (two work, two home). I've been enjoying it for at least five years. I'm a novelist and I enjoy reading what others have to say about their processes. I'm immediately buying this book (although the library where I work also owns it: http://catalog.jclc.org/record=b2745225~S1). Cheers to you. (And seriously, I keep a list of names for characters to use in my future projects and BOTH Mason and Currey - I spelled it Currie- are already in it.) I cannot wait to see what you've done with the book version of this blog. All best! Hunter

Shawn Zehnder Rossi! I love this! I'm Hunter Murphy and I tweet for @BPL. I'm the one who called you a Marvelous Blogger and a Great Southerner today. :) You deserve even more superlatives for this piece here on the blues. I'm really crazy about your blog here. I would lean more to the idea that it's "everything" rather than "nothing." :) You are too cool for high school. Speaking of school, I got to see RL Burnside in 1995 at Sewanee. He sat on a folding chair at the edge of the stage and absolutely made his guitar sing for two hours. It was an experience to remember. Thanks for connecting with my library! I hope you're having a brilliant summer in Brandon with your fam. Take care of yourself. All best! Hunter

Josh Getzler, I hope you got to hear "Teach Your Children" and "Helplessly Hoping" http://youtu.be/_tw7hk_Hd1M at the concert. Two of my favs. I listened to them this week in fact. That's some good times music. I was born in '76 (way after my time musically). So glad to know their concerts are still good. Long live those guys. Best! -Hunter PS Check out this song I wrote for my brother's folk band: http://youtu.be/aTVthwFtCZs.
