Uncle.

wordpress is nice, but for some reason they make embedding things like video a pain in the ass. also, i do like not having to pay for the privilege of altering my html and css when i want. as such, i've come crawling back to blogger begging for forgiveness.

muxtape in all its original freewheeling glory was killed by the RIAA, but there are a couple websites vying to be legit replacements. one of them is 8tracks.

This is timely, because I've been thinking of starting one up and I was so charmed by your wordpress layout that I was going to head straight there. Maybe not.

WP plugins are still accessories you have to shop for, even though most are free; for instance, I use "Viper quicktags"...(http://www.viper007bond.com/wordpress-plugins/vipers-video-quicktags/ ) makes embedding video simple; click an icon, paste the video's URL, done.

I host my blog, so the html and css issues are my own. The latest WP, 2.7, is another incremental improvement, but it keeps getting better and easier, and I like that. For what it's worth.

BTW, I wound up here after reading your comments on Alex Leo's post about advertising sexism. Well said.
