    Ah sweet. This remix track is great. Thank you! You are my hero for the day. And I'm super jealous to see that you are going to see them live in November.

    I'm really enjoying Zammuto. The Books were great, and they will be missed, but it was really a completely different show. The Books and it's players have always been a cyborg recreation of human life, but they always seemed to love the machine more. I pictured them as the Borg and saw them being content to leave everyone else behind because what they had found was better. They didn't care of anyone understood them or came along. They just did what they wanted because they had the power. So, listening to their music was a journey to a strange and distant place, but you sometimes had to struggle to keep up. I feel like Zammuto is that same cyborg coming home to apologize and try to integrate back into the human race. He is still very much disconnected from the world, and sees things differently, but there is something more approachable about it. I feel sympathy for him trying to meet us halfway, and I can respect that.

    I like Tramp, but I prefer Epic. Epic was more immediate and tuneful. Nothing on Tramp has grabbed me like "A Crime" or "Peace Signs".

    Oh, cool. Enjoy that Andrew Bird concert. He's pretty amazing to watch live, and I think his new album is actually designed specifically to translate into a live performance.

    Great work on your popmatters review of Pepe - so much detail and helpful context provided. This album really is one for the ages. Can't wait for the packaging in the CD or even better the vinyl release - I only have mp3s of the album at present.
