ADVICE

We are all on the edge
………………….of overwhelmed
constantly (whereas, over-
whelmed in past days was only
flickering) More than ever
one must keep attention singular,
and not over-load, over-borne
unnecessary piffle, stay absorbed
in momentary things, else
you wind up like one of those
gawdawful burritos with too many
ingredients, or worse: the Rubber Truck
has come to take you away

    Wow! The photo of Phillip Greenlief, and myself (Scott Amendola), was our first time playing duo in LA, and my first time meeting Nels Cline. That meeting led to the forming of the band L.Stinkbug (w/ Steuart Liebig, GE Stinson, Nels, and myself), and then ultimately led to the forming of The Nels Cline Singers. LIFE CHANGING NIGHT! So amazing you captured this Mark. By the way, Phillip and myself have a new duo release in the works! And more!
