I hope you're OK. Thanks for passing along the podcast, which may have been overshadowed a bit by your mention of the news you're coping with, that inspired it. Take care, Evan/Somnia.

Nice work, Mike and Hypnos, et al....
I just got the copy I ordered of "A Look Within" last week. It has been played a lot at my house and in my car since then. I am terrible at reviews, I prefer to leave those to people like Bill and others. I will say that I do enjoy it a lot. Highly recommended! Harry D P.S. I said it on the old forum, but will repeat it here. Mike and Lena do a great job of getting products out. I have ordered quite a few small orders recently. I usually order on a Sunday and have my cd's by Wednesday or Thursday here in San Antonio. Who knew the Pony Express could move out like that. Great job you two.
This Forum includes an optional feature called "Karma" which allows users (at least somewhat established users, who have registered and posted a few times) to give positive or negative karma points to users who contribute something positive or negative to the Forum.
Someone who creates an interesting topic, or who posts an insightful post, or a good CD review, might receive positive karma.
Someone who breaks a Forum rule, or posts something inappropriate, or even who posts a "waste of space" comment, might receive negative karma.
I've turned on the karma option so we can experiment with it a bit. If it's used frivolously or spitefully, I'll just disable it, but if it can be used for a sort of "peer review" to encourage people to contribute, and discourage people from acting like fools, then we'll keep it.
The karma points show up under your name & avatar, each time you post.
is there a way to tell who gave us karma ratings?
Great to see the following GOS's releases recognized thus far:
Moljebka Pvlse - Driftsond (GOS) CD-R
Jonathan Block & The Circular Ruins - Shadows on Water (GOS) CD-R
Matt Borghi & Ben Fleury-Steiner - What the Night Leaves Behind (GOS) CD-R
I'll post my more complete list later, but I actually do have a single favorite ambient record of 2007:
STEPHEN PHILIPS "Into the Dark" (HYPNOS) CD
Wow, was this one worth the LOOONNNNNGGGG wait. Just a tremendous piece of minimal beauty and subtlety--rare that I listen to something as continuously as Steve's disc--press repeat and new discoveries emerge on each listen--not to mention a state of deep relaxation (which is always a bonus)...
I will have to see if former guitarist/band leader is still interested in an audio interface. Currently unemployed unfortunately so I can't offload my PC w/21" monitor to him for cheap yet. Too bad that Motu doesn't have MIDI. I don't think the mkII has MIDI either, he'd have to look at the Ultralite which is like ~$550. The other may be doable if he has the cash. I ain't fronting anything for him/anyone cept myself ;-)
I'll let you know. If you sell it, that's fine. Don't wait too long on response from me on this.
