John Floeter sent me a link to an insanely funny service called Gizoogle which allows you to read my blog in glorious Snoop Dog jive talk. You can click here to read the whole site in jive (warning–lots of profanity if you try it) , or check out this version of my Contrabass Conversations show notes:
