This is the face of a man whose bachelor days are over. Johann and Anitale are getting married RIGHT NOW, as I type. It’s possibly the final image of his unmarried status. Girls – you missed out. Anitale is also cute and groovy. Boys – you missed out. By the time you read this, they will be married.

I met these lovely people via Seesmic since Johann is lead developer for the site. When I went to Paris a month ago I got to hang out with them, and really enjoyed their company.

Meanwhile, some explanation of my temporary absence in these parts. I’ve written or co-written nine songs in the past two weeks by dint of waking at 5.30am and writing for three hours every morning, exposed to public gaze. The first week’s tunes are all on sale, and the free podcast is doing just fine.

My favourite two songs of the project so far are Three Feet Off Gabriola and The Other Side, both of which rather selfishly I wrote on my own – except that I got plenty of input from the “audience” during the sessions. I’m going to have to find a replacement for that word, which combines the concept of audience with collaborator. Hmmmm….

I am currently feverish, though sadly not with anticipation – I just have a cold virus. Now I am going to attempt breakfast.

    First “Seesmic” marriage? May it be a long and happy one. A whole community is witnessing, that’s exciting and thrilling. What to say? Congratulations ! the Internetfairy tale is unfolding and we are there…

    (Hope your flulike cold is fading away, still wishing you well and thinking of you).
