Received a few comments about my "Yarrrn!" shirt suggestion and I wanted to clear the air. First off, I'm not affiliated with Jinx in any way shape or form, and I don't actually care whether any of you buy it or not. I just thought it was a fun shirt a friend told me about and figured, "Hey. Men who knit might like a knitting t-shirt." This is why I recommended it.
As for my myspace page, I sell my music because I've worked my ass off to write and record it all. I've had to do all the work myself...keyboard, computer, software, bowed psaltry, microphone, etc... Additionally, there is a link on there to make a donation, and although I have never (and still don't) really expect anyone to use it, one person has. I don't know who, but it was a while back. And, like the link says, I have never touched that money at all, and will never do so until I have enough coupled with it to upgrade my keyboard, software, microphone, or anything else associated with my music (no, not an mp3 player or anything like that).
To be frank, it hurts me that people would accuse me of being shady just for these few dinky reasons. I'm not asking for money from any of you, and I joined this website to make friends with fellow male knitters...not to make a buck or two. Anyone who's even paid half-attention to my posts on here would know that.
