as do i!
i want to use it as a little avatar for you each time i quote you on the calendar.
for example:
“come down to the nile for ______, a great summer show from the former tambourine players of _______–
¡live long & prosper!” -finks

thank you again for the info, especially because you folks have the good stuff–
our concert calendar is usually some filler packed around all of blue nile’s shows! you folks are doing great work for this town.
