A little note because I can't comment yet: I listened to Circus Maximus from Star of Indiana. Great. I was transported back to the world I used to love so much. I'll have to start nosing around and listening on other corp sites. For one little season in high school, I was a cymbal player (long story), and I could do a fan with my Zildjians like nobody else.
Also, I saw this painting you pictured just last week. I found it through linking from someone's site--maybe it was yours. Interesting effects.
