Speaking fo which.. I got the tape in the mail. I don't know if

you guys got my email (I got a bounce the first time and honestly

can't remember if I resent it or not) but I got the tape.

 

Hey, I LIKE this! it's got a little Metheny feel in some parts..

 

It is 'mild enough' for the pinks, in a pinch. Yesterday I took

3 of the bigwigs in my car when we went to lunch. I had the tape

playing in the car and at first, they liked it enough.. but they were

wondering why the song went on so long. I told them it wasn't really

a song, per-se.. it was one of those subliminal hypnosis tapes.

 

Knowing me, they looked at each other nervously and started rolling down

windows and talking RILLY RILLY LOUD and laughing a lot. And loud.

They also looked for other people in the restaurant to ride back with,

but nobody was there. We rode back to the office with a lot of cold

wind, misplaced hairpieces and pink cheeks.

 

I wrote down the points.
