Not that good?

I am a hobbyist in a field where people often share and publish material they have created. I have met many of these people, and often complimented them on their creations. Frequently I'll get a response along the lines of, "Oh, my stuff is not that good." My first thought is, "Do you really think my judgement is that bad?" And my second though is, "If you think it's not that good, why are you publishing it?"

Got My Mind Set On You

I typically don't give inanimate objects names. My car doesn't have a name, nor does my guitar. The one exception is my metronome, George. It's convoluted: when I think of the word I split it into two words - metro gnome. Urban elf. Then I think of the cover of All Things Must Pass. And I figure that Mr. Harrison, with his three garden gnomes, must think of himself as a gnome also. So it's a tribute.
