The message reads:
I'm just dropping you a line simply because I haven't for too long.
And to let you know you are still the highlight of youtube
Here is a link to a remake that concerns us both, it's pretty much identical...
Plus, I simply had to share our duet with the world. It made my own mother cry. Ok, so she cries at certain episodes of the simpsons, but weeping all the same! In fact she sent it to my dad in Sweden and it's the first video he's seen of mine, so she must have liked it. I don't think my family care too much for what I do, so thanks for getting me extra 'good son' points! You are welcome round for tea anytime.
I'm loving your written blog also. I've just discovered "google reader" and it makes me happy to receive an inspirational wave of Nikkiporridge straight to my inbox.
I hope all is well in the world for you dear x
ben was one of my very first friends on youtube & definitely one of my favourite people to watch. to have a reciprocated respect from someone so talented, intelligent & charismatic is beyond fullfilling. (hey benathan! i'm sorry for quoting your message in public like that). thank you for lending your talents to our collab!
i dunno... i've realised that i actually place a lot more emphasis on internet friends a lot more than i would've ever imagined. it's just amazing that people oceans away are so capable of inciting a smile.
speaking of the creature-friends of far-away, alex (nerimon's) sms today was adorable:
if you wanna come to england, bounty hunter, just go for it :) save and go and embrace me
I WISH ALL MY FRIENDS DIDN'T REQUIRE OXYGEN & SPACE, & I'D SHRINK EVERYONE DOWN & KEEP THEM IN MY PURSE AT ALL TIMES. ah, the burden of continents.
in other news, uni started up again, & min & i are surrounded by beautiful people in our international communications class. honestly, i feel like i've walked into the set of laguna beach or something equally herpes-infested. i feel so out of place!
anyway, a picture of some ethnics on public transport (stolen from min):
