    I really like the look and feel of this who video. And yes, I did notice that some of the texture overlays that I do with my photographs are similar to some of their imagery…

    oh, lucky you… they are one of my favorite bands in the last 5 years… i think The Black Light is the CD to get if you were to get only one of their discs.

    very sultry music and the video is fab…it does have many elements that remind me of your art…and for some reason the singer’s voice reminds me of jim morrison…
