That's fantastic, I've enjoyed so many of those albums of that label and appreciate it greatly. Big fan of Arcticology especially and many of the artists there.

Actually Forrest, I'm a pretty shy person myself. Jesse was my first big celebrity so I don't know why I bombed so much the 2nd time with Mr. Rich . I didn't really approach him conventionally like an obtrusive fan. Jesse put me up to it...
Don't forget that you stayed at this celebrity's house for a couple weeks too!
Judd, I think it would be really cool if in "Paradise" Shaw and David find out the "real" aliens are the xenomorphs and that the Engineers were "robots", or genetic machines if you will, created by the xenomorphs, which will show how technology can get so streamlined with genetics and everything that it's hard to tell what is manufactured and what is a living being. I don't know if this is one of the wacky ideas being tossed around, but I guess I really want the xenomorphs to be the real aliens because the Engineers looked like WWF wrestlers.

I actually manage my digital distribution myself. So, I will probably see a few coins come my way from your purchase so thank you. I've noticed that online sales have significantly dropped in the last year. I think more people are just streaming through Pandora and downloading less.
I'm actually in the process of removing my music from online stores as it's costing too much to maintain. I pay about $50 per album per year and most bring in little more than this. It's just a bad deal unless you're selling a lot of music. As a replacement to this, I have started building a band camp site that I will focus all my efforts on. This will be where all my new music is released. Band camp has the ability to socially activate your music unlike any other site I have seen. In a way, you set it free and allow each album to spread to those who want it.
While on this subject, It's with great pleasure to announce that Zo Pilots is now on Band Camp with a very special surprise! Fissure Docks, An unreleased track originally intended to be on Zo Pilots, turns up on a DAT tape! I pulled this song at the last minute and replaced it with some live material. I always wanted to make it available and thought this would be a good time to this.
copied straight from DAT with no modern processing.

Bruno Sanfilippo "Piano Textures 3" CD
The album unfolds soothingly with minimal, but expressive piano tune backed by captivating natural sounds of bird calls or cow bells.
Yes, I agree. The music that I enjoy the most appeals to me on a very subjective emotional level, and brings back memories associated with it, too. For me, that would be progressive rock. I think it's very similar feeling to being a longtime fan of, say, the Chicago Cubs.
And clearly Rainforest is not overrated? Ive not heard it.....need to change that.

If it makes you feel any better, I remember being really excited about meeting one of Steve Reich's soloists, who happened to be staying in my school dormitory during a new music festival. After telling her how much Reich had influenced me, I gave her a copy of my second album, which she promised to give to him. I never heard back from him, which was really a bummer. I once had the chance to approach John Cage (at the same new music festival), but lost the nerve because I couldn't think of anything to say to him that wouldn't sound lame.
When I met Robin Guthrie backstage at a Cocteau Twins show in '93, I offered my "Moon and the Melodies" cd for him to sign. He said, "You actually like this?!". I was a little disappointed with that reaction, but he was still nice about it. He was almost embarrassed by it. He wanted to talk about how nice Harold Budd was instead of the music. Years later he talked about how his drug problem was a part of slagging off his own work. I don't think an artist should hold back if there's something they did they aren't proud of, even if I happen to really like it.
