It was only a matter of time. I have a generic name; one of the most generic names anyone could have. I get reminded of this every time I do a search for it. Currently, a Google search for my name ranks this site as second in the list (results may vary). Guess whose site is before mine?
Today, I got a message through my Contact page from a new visitor down in…Down Under.
hey there Shawn
not sure if you will get this or not but I had to contact you because you inspire me
I adore your vineyard background and your music is fantastic.
My email address is xxxxxxxxx @ xxxxxxx . com

I was crippled with laughter for a few minutes after reading this. Yes, I’m an asshole. Jason (and all you others), you have mistaken me for a homosexual Contemporary Christian singer of the same name. Make no mistake: I am not him. Please observe context; use critical thinking skills to determine if I am that guy before you say “Hello”. Maybe I’m not using enough profanity or anti-religious sentiment to make it well-apparent. I must be slipping.
Thanks for the compliments on the vine image, Jason, but I doubt if you have heard any of my music. I doubt you’d want to hear it. I hope you don’t take it personally that you are the mounted deer head on my fireplace mantle. Someone has to take the fall.
