hello. i read your livejournal a lot ... good stuff ... would you mind if i
named my band, "chaircrusher"? it has a certain ring to it.
I really did get this e-mail. I asked him not to use the name because for better or worse, it's my brand identity. Frankly I don't know why anyone would voluntarily use it for any reason. It kind of bugs me, but I'm stuck with it. Not to bag on 'someguy' -- after all, precious few people have ever complemented me on my LJ. Well 2 have, actually. Versus the dozen or so friends who always seem to find something in each post to tease me about.
And no, I'm not fishing for praise here.
