So You Think You Can Dance – recap

  Well, folks, there it is, in all it’s awkward glory. The dancers were not feeling this song. Which is too bad. But it was still a thrill so hear my music on network TV. And FOX no less. Haven’t seen any uptick in sales or attention, but that’s ok, because it’s my old band….

What I’m Listening to – Leonard Cohen
