that's just demented! the umbilical chain is morbid in itself but being attached to the beast kind of sweetens the deal. Very good job sir! I belive i'm on the 9th reread of Monocyte now. I find so many more things to like each time i read. yet some how i feel like i'll find even more once i can read them with the soundtrack. I love your oil paintings, so much as to want to hang one on my wall in my recording studio. do you have any for sale?
