  1. Hello Assaf, thanks for the very nice comments on my own blog! I'll put a link to yours in the Friends section, so we can always check each other's work. Anyway, I'll be reviewing Tohpati Ethnomission's album for ProgressoR in the near future, so you will be able to read my impressions of it.

    Hope everything else is going well with you! Still looking forward to meeting you one of these days... We'll probably have to head north to NY for this to happen!


Any comments?
