I am happy to report that I have a legitimate review for my new album. I do not know the guy who reviewed the cd, did not give him money, did not promise him sexual favors (at least I think), and did not give him free drugs. I should also say that it has been a weird fascination of mine to feel like I needed a review by someone I did not know so that I could in some feel more legitimate.
This is a stupid desire as I have no control over whether or not someone reviews my album, but it was something I wanted nonetheless. I should clarify that the type of review did not matter to me. It could have been as bad as “someone please cut Ryan Singer’s mouth off with a dirty butter knife so that he may never tell another joke again,” or something rather glowing. I just wanted a review in general. If you are saying in your head right now, “You’re full of shit, Ryan!” I am not going to say you are crazy. But, it is so.
I just always felt this was some form of validation ever since I was a kid and thought about having an album because I heard of and learned about so many through reviews. Having said all that, rather written all of that, you should check out the review I got from John Delery at Punchline Magazine. The cool thing about this whole thing for me is that I go to Punchline multiple times everyday to check on stand up comedy news and things. They’re a really awesome site if you’re a comedy fan.
I truly appreciate the ink, thanks. Here’s the link…or just click on the picture above the article.
I also really want to say a huge thank you to everyone who has bought the album and has had such great things to say about it. It means a lot to me that people seem to be enjoying the cd and hopefully more and more people will as well. I am grateful for all the support, ya’ll.
