Back when I was nine or ten (before I knew any better) I used to like Barry Manilow. OK, so the secret’s out now. I have just become a social pariah among my peers. Anyway, the shadowscope mom used to love Barry Manilow, so I got to listen to quite a bit of it and I liked him. I think at that point in my life he reminded me of Gene Wilder, who I loved as a comedian. I don’t know why. I just did.

Oh, and go vote for him as funniest blogger at the Blogger’s Choice awards (it’s linked in the post).
