Music: The International Language

"All right gentlemen. Let's make it a good one. The world is listening."
--Russell Mulcahy in Highlander 2: The Quickening.
I wanted to step out from behind the curtain for a moment, to express my pleasure and amazement at the international character of the readership of this blog. Although the majority of my page-views come from the United States (I'm based in New York) it is a welcome thrill each time I see a new country pop up on the Google page view tracker.

I know that those pv's just reflect clicks and may not necessarily mean that people in those countries are reading my articles on a daily basis. But it's still exciting to play "world traveller", even as I stay here on the east coast of the United States, pretty much year-round.

So here's a quick shout out to the people in countries that read this blog (so far.) As far as Google can tell, the penguins, scientists, and Shoggoths in the Antarctic aren't reading Superconductor. But anything can happen.

It's an interesting list. Some surprises.

Critical Thinking in the Cheap Seats

My photo

Since 2007, Superconductor has grown from an occasional concert or CD review to a near-daily publication covering classical music, opera and the arts in and around NYC, with excursions to Boston, Philadelphia, and upstate NY. I am a freelance writer living and working in Brooklyn NY. And no, I'm not a conductor.
