I've just spent the better part of an hour reading through this blog and going through your portfolio.
Here are my observations:
1) We have the same middle name!
2) Your blog is what my blog aspires to be. Only instead of insightful, often meaningful writings of composers, social commentaries, and the fine arts...mine contains fart jokes and the occasional picture of larger-than-average cats. And also boobs.
3) My personal John Williams favorite is the Jurassic Park theme, but Duel of Fates is a close second.

I have a account, too and I never knew it could be so deep and useful. I'd love to set up a portfolio, too.

Well that comment made my day. Thanks! But believe me, this blog has its fair share of fart jokes and adorable animals. Actually, I think the site suffers from not enough focus and just being a random smattering of all my interests. Oh well. It is what it is.
