about

These are all songs recorded between (around) 1999-2002. Thanks to a couple backed up CD-Rs - I feel my sincerity could become thin as I reflect on public displays of (almost) lost sounds - Which is funny because I consider this a small collection of HAPPY Musics. I know in this "day and age" (lame but whatever) asking for almost anything is frowned upon or ignored.. BUT ("the big but") Consider helping me look forward by stealing & sharing OR buying a song or eleven.. ;)
