  1. Hey I just stumbled upon your blog, because I was curious about users who chose similar monikers. My first post was written this week and I also inuded Harry Nilsson so. I thought it was too much of a coincidence not to comment. Nice list!

  2. Also, I love The Menahan Street Band!

  4. Joe: My brother-in-law recorded it on an iPhone at a live show – I extracted the audio. I think it’s posted on YouTube.
