Hi Scott,

I know that this isn't exactly a comment, but I couldn't find your e-mail address, and I wanted to write and tell you about a new website for artists, musicians, fashion designers, and filmmakers: I've been using the site as an artist and have my work there, and am trying to support it because I believe in it. Basically, the site allows artists from all over the world to connect, display their portfolios, and sell their work (with NO commission taken!). The site gives artists a FREE gigabyte of space to showcase their portfolios, allows you to stream audio and video works, lets you create live personal broadcasts, and translates any writing into ten different languages. If you could take the time to visit the site, and if you like it too, let your readers know about it, and even sign up yourself or link to it on your site it would be greatly appreciated! We are trying to make a go of helping out artists everywhere and are trying to get the word out, so please help us out if you like the site after checking it out! Thank you!

All the best,
Sarah at


I saw them two weeks ago, and I did like it, but I got the feeling the best was yet to come. Mary Halvorson sounded a bit too restrained that night -- well compared to Weasel Walter that's understandable -- but the different genres they're bringing together makes that lineup so interesting. I called them free-whatever in the best possible way, they find common ground in fields that I think are sometimes close to growing stale from over-definition.

Have played with Mary in a more rock-based context with Kevin Shea -- her playing is restrained, and that to me is one of her strengths.
