I have one opponent yet to face in two games, but he has not begun to play in this tournament.

Tonight one of my songs will be on internet radio at Stillstream as part of a cool compilation called Just Not Normal 100. My track will come on at about 4 in the morning Texas time or so--I don't think I can stay up that long.

I am in the mood to drive to endless grasslands, or fish for catfish under a midnight moon.
