I love the greens on your site. Very soothing. I am still trying to figure out what all this is about by the way. Also, I write controversially about sport for major national British newspapers. Get in touch.

I would like to thank you for your insightful review of “Captain, Captain.” I have not heard Mance’s version. I do, however, think that I have a version that Muddy Waters did acapella that has many things in common. I think that I heard something similar that Josh White did also.

Thank you.

I’m at the library, may have to buzz off quick. So be forewarned my man.

There’s a new situation in the desert. A trampoline people fly from.

In the daytime the cleavage abundant. At night I saw a stick figure in a moonbeam though which was even more rad if you want to know the truth.

No one there will tell you life’s like chess.

Once you’ve been it’s not that hard to find again. The background’s everything at once. But what’s in front’s real specific, if not too well-thought-out. Like...your dad’s signature. The smell of sun in his hair.

Forgive me, but you do see my point.

So I’m thinking tonight why don’t you let Mr. Cordova fend for himself? He knows how to make a drink for Christ sake. He knows how to take a bottle off a shelf. Let’s forget ourselves like a puddle in the light. There’s still at least one constellation left for us to name. I want to show you where to lie to feel the train. So what do you say we step out tonight?

Your faithful lab partner in crime,
Sunny TANG, man

From the little of what you have made available to me that I have read so far, I like the way you write, & how your mind works.

If you like, you can check me out a bit, by going to <>.

Also, I believe you would find the people at one of my favorite sites, uXu—a Swedish-based, mostly-English online occasional magazine—very receptive to your writings: <>.

I’m pretty much an IT fool, but both uXu’s editors know a lot more than I do. One is an IT professional, who is far from ordinary. Nothing ordinary about the other, either—he’s a wonderful writer of stories & philosophical pieces.

Hello again. Your site still looks great and continues to impress me. I read portions of your essay on the American Constitution written when you were coming of age. I think most of my stuff from that time was about Jim Morrision. I’m pretty sure I was aware of injustices, inaccuracies and issues of equality then, but they were just ideas; things we talked about to sound smart while we were high. Hollywood was selling directly to me then and Madison Avenue and Republican are trying today. I hope the struggle for understanding, mutual respect, and intellectual equality isn’t too large of a burden when so many confuse capitalism (read: homogeneity machine) and morality.

Oh, and your pros are very good.

Can I say, as a complete outsider, keep it up.

It needs Davis, McLaughlin, Corea, Handcock, Jarrett, Airto, and a few others.

Hi, Bryan—

Pretty good… my only criticism is that I would have liked some more solo improvisation in your piece. It sounded more like the “background” of a late Miles jam to me. That is, Miles’ own work almost always had someone soloing on top of everything else that was going on, whether it was Miles himself or Dave Liebman or Pete Cosey or whomever. It was the improvisation *combined* with the funky rhythmic underpinnings that gave the music such an edge (and the harder the edge, the better I like it--I’m a big fan of “Dark Magus”).

I’d give your Miles-inspired work a “B+.” Nicely done, overall, but it does need a little more “oomph” (from a soloist).

Best regards,

Do you know about the “2001 Kings & Queens of Africa” calendar?

If these are like last year’s, they will be great!

They are really nice—and free!

Call Anheuser Busch to get your 2001 calendar. They are only giving out one per person. The number is 1-877-475-4647. The calendars will be mailed out 4 to 6 weeks after your call.
