i see the last dispatch was jaunuary. january. long time. in the meantime, i recorded a new record, 'toured' around a bit, had a great summer tooling around with my family, finished 50,000 bonghits - a kind of memoir, more or less - and released previously mentioned recording on ropeadope records and had and am having subsequent hype-fest. i have had some health issues that have kept me off the bike project but i have been riding and writing down the playlists, so more of that is in the offing. everything's cool now. i'm getting back on the bike. have to catch up first.
