My Official Coolest FaceBook Moment EVER was getting the following notification:

"Howard Jones has accepted your friend request."

OMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMG!! OH EM GEE!!!1111

It's different than on MySpace, where your favorite artist has thousands upon thousands of friends.  Right now Howard only has 200+ FaceBook friends.

But he was sitting there FaceBooking at the same time as me, and I've got butterflies in my stomach right now :-)  I am such a huge New Wave geek as it is, and Howard has been one of my all-time favorites since like, 1983.  So I'm like, totally buzzing right now.

I just had to tell somebody before I asploded.  That is all.

Aw, that rocks. (As do you, as it happens.) I don't wanna be the unduly-harsher-of-squee thing here, but I'm sure you already know how many internet imposters there are, so just be careful, k?

In any case, as I semi-recently commented about the clippy of "New Song" at YouTube: "Ah, mimes in chains...it just don't get no better 'n that!" :D

Well, this is the real Howard because he's posting video bloglike things from his Australian tour. I saw a couple of my FB friends posting comments on his videos, and I know that they know him, so it's cool :-) But I do appreciate your mother henliness. :-) I got some fangirl slobber on his wall but I *had* to let him know how I felt about his last album.

You should see if you can find a video for "Revolution of the Heart", "For You See Me", and/or "Celebrate Our Love". I'd love for you to hear some of the songs off his most recent one, the one I adore so much.

(I don't get a chance to use this icon enough--thanks for the gimme there!)

I'll definitely check those songs out, yo. I was always faintly bemused by the success of "No One Is To Blame" (which after hearing in the supermarket the other day I realized is always gonna remind me of one of my more ill-behaved exes) because I'd always liked HoJo's earlier stuph, and perhaps not unlike the BOHF reaction to Nu Hu fans, I was all, "Where have you people been?" ;)
