One of the reasons I love the TIG is that I'm part of a community of like-minded music fans all across the land. However, since many of you are concentrated in the upper left-hand corner of the U.S.A., I've recruited some new writers from the upper right hand corner, plus one from the upper middle. In addition to my new recruits, I've seen some other new faces (er, handles) around here lately. So I thought I'd open up the floor for some introductions. Who's new, who's where, and who's got the funk?
