  1. Please forgive me Snark. The last couple of days have been very overwhelming at work...so naturally I've been just playing Disappears and African Head Charge from this show over and over and over again. Maybe 70 times!

    OK OK...on to other musics.

  2. I've missed your comments about the musics, but I figured work kicked in to high-gear.
    I'm so curious to hear if you liked any of this (and subsequent) stuff!
