I am honoured that you have included my library in your list of interesting libraries.
I ever am
yours most sincerely,
James Boswell

Note from moibibliomaniac: If you liked Boswell's Life of Johnson, I recommend The New Boswell by R. M. Freeman, London, 1923.

Thank you for accepting my friends invitation. I hope my profile gave you some new insights into Volney, Jefferson and Franco-American history. I will be glad to answer any questions you might have regarding Volney, his views, or book purchases. All Zee Best, TCW
This is a quick thank-you for all the music you are giving me. I have a lot going on right now, but I will definitely appreciate it over the next couple of weeks.
Thanks for the recommendations. Could you recommend some specific songs from these bands? I'd like to check them out on YouTube as a first step. By the same token, if you're interested in trying out old school metal, DT or NW, here's my recommendation based on guitarwork and intense vocals. I'm afraid I can't advise on a "funky" sound, with the possible exception of Deep Purple's *Stormbringer* album.

Iron Maiden: The Number of the Beast, Prowler, The Trooper, Where Eagles Dare, The Wicker Man

Black Sabbath (two from each singer): The Warning, Black Sabbath, Die Young, I (from the Dehumanizer album), Disturbing the Priest, Trashed, Heart like a Wheel, Danger Zone, Devil and Daughter, The Headless Cross

Dream Theater: Pull Me Under, Learning to Live

Nightwish: The Kinslayer, Crownless

I really like and admire Spiral Architect's *A Sceptic's Universe*.
I also just visited your blog site. With the exception of Dark Tranquility and Devin Townshend, all the metal bands you list there were new to me. I'm partial to the bands with a "symphonic" sound, like Nightwish and Royal Hunt, and progressive ones like Dream Theater (as well as "old school" metal, like Sabbath and Maiden). How would you characterize the ones you like?
Hi Stephen,

You may be interested in visiting the website of Aristos: The Journal of Aesthetics. They have lots of great articles on painting and art education, and defend the sort of values that emphasize human greatness and beauty.
Thank you for adding me to your list of interesting libraries. We share a passion for the journey through great books - a lifetime of liberal learning.
