April’s newsletter giveaway: Altec Lansing portable player for iPhone and iPad

altecWith each edition of my monthly newsletter I do a giveaway. For April’s newsletter (which I’ll send out tomorrow morning), I’m giving away an Altec Lansing iMT630 portable dock and player for iPhone and iPad.

It’s used. It’s mine. I’ve had it on my desk for maybe three months. I love it. It works perfectly. But for my birthday a week or so ago, a fellow music-freak friend of mine gave me a Bose Mobil Speaker II—which sounds so insane I’m using it to replace my Altec Lansing player. But I can’t throw out my Altec player, or just let it sit somewhere. It’s great: it’s got a little remote that stores right in the back of the thing, and … it’s just a fun little player. So I thought for this month’s newsletter I’d pack it up and ship it out to one of my online friends. For a chance to win it, sign up for John’s Monthly Newsletter.

In other news, this past Saturday night, during Easter Vigil, the Burning of the Resentments happened. It was an exceptionally touching and beautiful ceremony. See pictures of it here.

In other news, I am now an Honorary Angry Lesbian, and here’s proof:


My recently deceased father would be so proud. (Seriously: he would be. My mother, however, whom I believe was a closeted lesbian, would perhaps be less thrilled. Or maybe more! Who knows? She’s dead, too. Which I don’t mean to say lightly. But … there it is.) Thanks to the great Rhys Harper (about more whom later) for making and sending me this lovely image (which I believe he did in response to this post).

In still other news, my wife just called to say my breakfast is ready. How awesome is that?

More and more I'm communicating with my readers through my free (and ad-free) email newsletter, which is just a simple, direct and personal email from me that I send out every three weeks or so. If you would like to receive this email in your inbox, subscribe to it on my website, or by using the subscription box about halfway down the column on the right. I wouldn't think of using your email address for anything but my e-newsletter (to which you can always unsubscribe with the click of a button). Thanks, and looking forward to communicating with you in this more intimate way.
