I’m not sure if it was that link from Dodge (definitely), the Neko stuff (probably) or my abundant supply of wit and charm (um, yeah, probably not) … either way, thanks for stoppin’ by.
To celebrate, here’s a picture of my cat, Sadie, which has nothing to do with anything, except for maybe that Neko’s sometimes-backing band is the Sadies:
On to the music, which includes my Neko favorite, Deep Red Bells, and a cover of Bob Dylan’s Buckets of Rain, for which I am indebted to Hello Gina for so kindly sending me when I once made a passing mention of my adoration for Neko.
