Hey Perry,

Thanks for your review. Your comments were right on the money! It was an fun little intro to the real track we cut a few years back, thought it might make an interesting instrumental. I should probably give it a real mix/clean up. Thanks!

P.S. I think we know some of the same people. In your bio it says you were doing sound design on Simpsons, King of the Hill, etc. That was at Sony right? Do you remember James and/or Wade?

I sure do, I still talk with crazy Joel Burns! He has done a lot of work for me over the years! Great gtr player with the best ideas by far, a real natural. How's Wade doing? I think he turned out the best from that gig. Where do you fit in? Did you work at Sony?

No didn't work at Sony, I am good friends with James and have been working with him on a few things for a while. Yeah, Wade has really been doing some cool work.
