            HERE'S PART ONE

To tell you about one of Vivek's enterprises,
I'll quote from The Animators.com links page ~
"Unlike a lot of other "industry" websites, Starpolish isn't after your money.

Founder Vivek Tiwary is just a really nice guy who really wants to help musicians succeed.

My favorite part of their site is the very detailed advice on the business of music: building a street team, landing the DEAL, etc. But there's a lot of useful tools on there as well."
Another article:

I'm so glad such a talented, generous man is so obsessed with telling Brian's story.
Let's back him up as best we can!

I'm slightly familiar with the beat poet Allen Ginsberg; however, I'm unimpressed ~ perhaps only because I've never paid him any attention ~ except for the definitely negative reaction our Brian had upon meeting him! Collapse )


I am asking three questions of everyone who reads this:

1. Do you know what Jammie Dodgers are?
2. Have you ever had Jammie Dodgers and do you like them?
3. Have you ever heard the Eddie Izzard reference to Jammie Dodgers?
