drew tells it straight


when i realized:
1. it's neat to put things on the web and have people really like
them, but creepy to get mail from "fans"
2. no matter how funny or smart your writing/drawings/pictures
are, 99% of people would rather see legos fuck

I haven't done for a while (probably since I took my surname of my homepage), but I used to fanmail for that other Howard Jones - that was really creepy.

(reference him? who?)

I get the occasional fanboy email when I post to a particularly non-female-populated (read: technical) mailing list or newsgroup or whatever. The blog responses are much less creepy, mostly cause well,
you (howie) and that irishman are the only two of my regular readers that I don't know in person. That and are responding to stuff I say, as opposed to "oh look! girl!".

Reference him, how he has changed their lives, and (in one case) how his songs reflect the many complexities of their polyandrous lovelife. Which was good to know.
