I feel that way about everything that I've written (as in literature). For my music, that's still there but to a lesser extent but I tend to be more accepting of the flaws. I think that might be because of the improvisational element? Idk for sure.

I need to take inventory to see the new stuff I've missed
'cause I've lost track due to personal projects of the last year:
250+ artworks, countless new audio pieces for myself and others,
the radio show, eBay selling, research, archiving, etc. I'll check soon.

dunno, didn't really think about it. i think as long as people are reasonable it's fine to nominate two or three per category. not much of a point in doing so however if the person was already nominated by someone else.

Virtuoso? Does he even play anything? Has anyone heard his music? Does he make any?

Just how I feel about my writing. It's nice to get compliments and praise, but I'd never go around saying "Guys you have to read this it's the best thing ever written" and so forth. I think you need a special kind of arrogance to be able to do that. Ahem.

Is it arrogance if it lives up to that claim though?

Fair point, but I guess the real question is does it stand the test of being popular outside of your own circle of friends and family? If strangers - and I mean strangers, not people you know casually or fanboy it to - can appreciate it, then yeah, you're probably justified. Otherwise it's just really self-praise and the praise of people who know you, which is really no measurement of its quality.

I never barred strangers from enjoying my records, that's ridiculous.

I wouldn't say I necessarily like any Frown albums that I've heard as a whole

but I respect the approach and there's good moments

better than any self recorded music by a forum member I've seen just by the nature of it not being derrivitive with production cliches galore

certainly think it'd be a blast to see frown man band live
