Hi Matt. Welcome to the Forum. I've been a fan of the Peccaries since Howard Givens launched SP. I'm curious to know who your faves on the label are, if you care to chime in on the subject.

Bill- I think I did point Barry in your direction, long long ago. And Mike- you wrote Barry around the time you wrote to me- Barry and I talked shortly after, and he asked me "what's up with this Hypnos label?" and I said that it was run by a pretty level headed, ego-free guy who appeared to be in it for the long term. I remember Barry stating, dryly, "then he'll never last in the music business!" I talked with Barry not terribly long ago, he was pretty excited about the (then) unreleased cd with Loren, but spent a lot of time asking about my wife and kids, wondering how it was possible that I was now the parent of a teen-ager. I always appreciated how Barry was interested in, and willing to talk about, things other than music.

just noticed this!
is this the actual cover or not? feels a bit retro for nowadays but most probably intentional with this re-release
Kraftwerk's The Catalogue
Extremely COOL and numerous images were snipped to preserve bandwidth
My childrens' laughter.
Good food, preferably with decent wine.
So Bill, what is your take on this series now that it's around half way done. Anyone else care to comment?
I truly don't understand the hatred and vitriol for Facebook. I certainly find some people's overuse of it a bit puzzling, but what harm does it do to you if you don't participate? Why mock it if you can instead choose simply to ignore it? What is the point of posting sarcastic and demeaning comments about a system that allows people to connect with others who, for whatever reason, they enjoy doing so? If it's mundane and vapid and banal, what difference does it it make to you if you aren't forced to read or participate? Just like this forum...god knows there is enough mental masturbation taking place here as well, to be honest.
Honestly...there are plenty of folks on Facebook that make me scratch my head and ask "Do they have a life?" but who the hell am I to judge them? Don't like Facebook..fine, leave it alone. I would say that 9/10 of the time I could dispense with it altogether, but just recently, Facebook enabled me to find out that a good friend and former co-worker of mine had to put his beloved dog to sleep so that when I saw him next in person I could give him a big hug and tell him how sorry I was. IMO, that's enough justification of a system that, by and large, may be nothing but a lot of "look at me" shit.
Sorry for the rant, but honestly...shit, there are more more important things to get worked up about, IMO...gas in the US is about to hit 4 bucks a gallon...fuck that, IMO.
No offense meant, by the way...but...oh what the hell...
The only person who expressed hatred and vitriol was the author who's message Mike posted. The rest of of us just made comments along the lines that there is too much empty blather on facebook. That's hardly "hatred and vitriol".
