Hey! Pluto can handle the emotional turmoil. He like a rock; or a ball of ice; or something. Three boys! Sounds like a handful.

>> Did we know each other?

Hell yeah, you lived w/John on Wilkie South 9 in '89/'90.
I lived at the other end of the hall in moronville.

You were the only guys on the floor I ever talked to about anything interesting (i.e. music.) Because you're the only guys who's CD collections involved more than just Steve Miller band's greatest hits. :)

I always tell the story about how YOU GUYS MET THE PIXIES in Nov. '89 - and I was invited to come with you after the show but chose instead to hang out with my girlfriend at the time (remember Gretchen?) Missed opportunity - yet I still sometimes tell the story on your behalf.

I'll have to update my picture one of these days - it's from high school and i find the hair amusing though I should be perfectly embarrassed by it.

Nice to hear from you Mike. Thanks in retrospect for introducing me to many great bands, Wire Train for ex.

i'll be back on the 21st. i'll miss the show and seeing everyone. on the bright side, my chances of survival (by not being there) has significantly increased.

thanks MB- we're gonna re-record that bad boy at some point I believe (won't be terribly different, just sound better hopefully).

is crooked county playing this weekend? i use to find out we had a show-like on a friday-by reading about it in the independent on that friday. i was like, "oh shit. i'm supposed to be a second story right now. well, i guess i'll quit my pizza delivery job (again) and get on over there." (15 minutes after we finally get on stage which is about 30 minutes late) "where the hell's jason?"

Hi Mr. Beam - you are making that up - I have been back to school. I have a masters in Design from the University of Cincinnati - I've been a college professor for 6 years!
