PLAYLIST 24 - Friends Of Mine

It’s kind of exciting… A brand new year is upon us, a brighter horizon perhaps. That old year certainly threw us its challenges and surprises. But looking back it was special in many ways. Not the least of which are the wonderful new friends I've made over the past three hundred sixty five days. Some of them are on my blog roll and I urge you to spend some time at their little virtual corner too. Creative, intelligent, patient, funny and lovely they all are. So for them, a small token of my appreciation; this is what I do best after all. A playlist dedicated to all of them. I am a better person to know these “Friends of Mine” and to all of them the most sincere best wishes for a splendid 2009.

Awww! The sweetness! Thanks so much. It's been an honour and pleasure to have met you, and I've been exposed to much new and different types of music that I don't know quite what to do with it all. Have a great 2009, sir =D

Ah, what a great idea for a post! I am going to have to check out the unknowns on this list.

Jellyfish! There's a name I haven't heard in a long while. That Camera Obscura song always make a smile, too.

WHat a lovely post, and such a sweet tribute to your friends.

It has been a great pleasure making your acquaintance this year and I hope we can meet face to face to exchange lies some day.
