We hope that you all have some things to be thankful for. We certainly do.

I particularly like the text above the FBI Anti-Piracy Warning: “WARNING! Not to be listened to while driving!”
UPDATE from the manufacturer’s product description, as seen on Amazon.com:

It has come to our attention that there are a number of people who read this blog regularly, but rarely/never comment. Consider this your invitation to speak up! Make yourselves heard! Starting a conversation is one of the reasons we founded this blog in the first place.
We’re looking at you, USC folks.
Happy 4th, Everybody.
Hello internet. Allow us to introduce ourselves. Our names are Vikram and Matt. We play music, against our better judgement.
Though mindful of Art Blakey’s admonition that “talking about music is like dancing about architecture,” we nonetheless find ourselves doing just that in diners and cafes throughout Los Angeles. Sometimes, people look over and smile. We’ve decided that starting a blog is easier than learning not to interrupt each other.
We think reasonable people can disagree, though occasionally they bore us. We think unreasonable people are wasting their time, though occasionally we admire them.
The religious aside, we don’t trust people who don’t like bacon.
Things this blog will be about: Music, Politics, Media, Food, Joy and Laughter, Darkness and Jazz Education…
Things this blog will not be about: …your mom?
We love you. And your mom.
