    And so it begins πŸ™‚

    Some cool stuff on here killa. Hope ya don’t mind if i poke around and make myself at home.

    Will be interesting to see where this new adventure leads. Begun with a fresh dose of humility, a new rambling paragraph style suited to the broad layout of the page, and perhaps a renewed burst of megalomania and world domination also suggested by the broader page. An assault on the world of art, man and technology. A kick in the teeth of vapid pop culture. A boot to the balls of the common and dull. A choke hold slapped firmly on mediocrity until it’s blue bulging face crumples into unconsciousness…… to be replaced by……

    Hi SK, this place looks great- hey I already am a subscriber, first thing I went to the honesty box and donated $$$ and hope many will do the same! No money is enough to repay you for all the moments of bliss your music has given me through all these years. Can’t wait to explore and explode with the treats and tricks of the new web site. I would like to say so many more things but for now, just the best of luck with this new enterprise!

    After giving in to Luddite tendencies (I was overkilled), your new site is the first thing I came upon on during reentry. The Time Being being timeless means all is still good in the cosmos. Look forward to curling up for several days with a few bottles of Wandering Poet sake and catching up. Much love to you and yours, lovely man.

    Well met Sir! Loving the new site, lots of cracks to peer into.

    Well here in IL land we are licking our wounds from our bestest show yet on Friday. Well over 100, alot for us, and we had them eating from our hands. Not played a show that well recieved since the late 90’s w/Coteire/local H-town Legends. Finally get to get a postitive result from playing a gig aka dangleing the carrot!

    And we’re back in studio yesterday and today to try and finish up or debut self-title LP, keys have been dropped in and lined up. All that is left is a few last lead OD’s and mixing.

    Love the site, I am sure there will be plenty of great things to come. I look forward to seeing this site develop. I was very excited to help with the input and to get a sneak peek. Please let us know if we can do anything else to help out. I was thinking if you put some details into the subscriber section you would be able to get more people signed up. I know the site is still coming together and additonal items will be added so I will be patient.

    [cautiously enters through the rough hewn walled doorway] floor boards creak under unsure weight. wait a minute, “was that a flicker of something out of the corner of my eye fleeing through the corners?”.

    The inspector inspects every nuance. every craggy crevice within one glance of a long stare glaze. this place is filled with many more things than my seasoned eyes can absorb in my normal investigative glance.

    There is more and more is what this gumshoe will get…….

    Easily my favorite section on ur sight is the “random quotes”. After reading the Nick Ward entry, i almost fell down laughing-he must have been such a tool in the day.

    For the fans: just keep clicking “next quote” and so on to get a real feel for this web site and its creator. This is by far the best thing out there in my lonely opinion-hell…the entire website is great !!!

      DavidP | 27 July 2010 at 8:56 pm #

      hi M E M, I have an idea. When we are asleep and dreaming we are in a higher dimension and because of that we can sometimes see things happen there before they happen here. What do you reckon?
