    nice. would be curious to hear the “smokin'” cuts, too. And I like the album cover lots.

    Seems the modem problem is fixed here in nowhere-ville, but you have work to do and shouldn’t be reading this anyway. haha. I wish you luck on your sthg. Have been back to a few of amb’s posts and see that you two continue to chatter long after others have left the room. funny stuff. So. Consider this your banter/batter of the day.

    Hey there, Liz! One of the smoking cuts off the album was featured here, but in a more smoking live version:
    Glad to see you’re reconnected! I checked the big thing off my list and now have mostly just the routine death by a thousand paper cuts. Ready to banter. Banter up! Hey banter, banter, banter, banter!
