      This is just the greatest power pop album of all time. Before they became scarce, Id scarf up any I found and pass them out to friends. Love turning people on to good music. One of the lucky friends left a message on my machine after hearing Kontiki, "you are a God!" That's what he said and I knew what he meant. Though I was just the messenger. I love the Big Picture almost as much and Amps of Sugarland drives me so crazy; my skin crawls, pulse quickens as the staccato beat blows right through me and as the drums roll and roil to conclusion I'm left half out of breath, exhilarated and spent. No offense to the greatest band of all time, but the Fab Four never did that to me.

      Someone has notified me that have the first recordings and footage of Cotton Mather in 1991... I am terrified.
      France... if only. My favorite place to travel. Can't believe its been so long. Find us a label there and I'll do it for the food alone...(and the vino)

      Ok, but what about a 3D movie?

      Responding to the two French comments- I remember that Perigueux show well and perhaps a photo with you out by our van... has a familiar feeling...
      DVD? There is little to no footage of live Cotton Mather but I am working on a few things that might come out later... but who knows
      but....we gotta hit the goal first

      Oh Yeah! An extra DVD would be a great idea!! We can't find any video about Kontiki on youtube ...
