I tend not to leave many remarks, however after reading through some of the responses on this page "Grammy Hall of Fame announces 2013 inductees".

I do have a couple of questions for you if you do not mind.
Could it be only me or do a few of the comments come across like they are
coming from brain dead individuals? :-P And, if you are posting at
other online sites, I'd like to follow everything fresh you have to post. Would you post a list of the complete urls of your social community sites like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?
