Hey bud. Don't want to be a douche, but if you're making the "how did you find that because blind and deaf," that's really not cool.

I'm excited for this, but I don't know how the book will translate, since so much of it's charm is in the first person.

Great review, though I seem to like the record a bit more than you do. I see it as a fantastic collection of singles that come up perfectly on shuffle, but the entire album seems to deviate too much...

Not trying to be a dick (I might agree with you) but please don't use actual disabilities as insults or examples of someone being wrong. Trying to separate negative stigma from real disabilities.

I really really dig it -- he seems to be letting those vocals really go. I hear a lot of progression, which makes me happy. Bring on that full length.

Love this record. And, based on your comparisons, I should probably give codes and keys another try.

I'm twenty-one, and never been up front... I don't want to.
I'm also legally blind, and 6"2, so I absolutely don't feel safe down front. I'm there to enjoy the band, not to get beaten up.

I really appreciate it! I hate doing it in threads like this because it would be so easy for me to point out the serious lack of disabled musicians in the scene... and it's definitely a conversation...
