To those of you commenting here using the old Blogger system

This is just a heads-up for those of you who have been commenting recently. Somehow it seems like some of you are seeing the old standard Blogger comments, which I haven't used in maybe 5 years, and in fact I can't even reply to them. So if you've written a comment to me using this system (which just looks like a standard text box with a submit button, from what I remember), I unfortunately have no way to respond to you. I can see your comments but I just can't answer the questions you've asked or thank you for any of the kind words some of you have left.

I've been using Disqus as my comment system for a long time, and it's worked well. I don't get a lot of comments but I do get some and I'm still seeing Disqus comments come through. I also see the Disqus system when I view my blog posts as a reader. So I'm not sure exactly why some people are seeing the old system. I'll have to look further into it. But in the meantime, if you're *not* seeing Disqus comments at the bottom of a post and want to ask me something, please email me instead.

About This Blog

This is increasingly not a blog about Alphabet City, New York. I used to live in the East Village and work on Avenue B, but I no longer do. Why don't I change the name if I'm writing about Japan and video games and guitars? Because New Yorkers are well-rounded people with varied interests, and mine have gone increasingly off the rails over the years. And I don't feel like changing the name. I do still write about New York City sometimes.

About Me

My photo

I'm married. I like to travel. I have no kids. I have a house... that I'm bad at maintaining. I used to collect classic video games. I own a lot of musical equipment that far outstrips my ability to use it. When I was younger, I was in a band. I like gadgets, and I'm an Android guy. Someday, I would like to live on a different planet.
