wow, november already... at least our southern cal fires are better under control and its lightly snowing in the local mountains. (crazy, after the extreme heat we had at the beginning of this week!!!)

this month, we have 2 gogirlsmusicfest shows that we are doing, one in arizona and one here in l.a., which should be GREAT! all proceeds go to our designated and very cool charity, the rock and roll camp for girls, and daisy guitars is giving away a guitar at the end of the tour, which everyone who goes to one of our go girls shows will be able to sign up for!!!!

also, i will begin my season's stint at mammoth mountain, so pray for snow and let's get shredding!!!!!!!

don't forget that pics of my trip to tampa are posted at the october 2003 journal, where you can see the performance photos as well as pics from the bucs game!!!

and...... yesterday i got my first review of ORPHANS, which will soon be ready for purchase! check it out here!

so many of you have emailed regarding my song that is in that old sci-fi film, "critters." it WILL be on the orphans cd, and that WILL be available probably by the end of the month at! some of you have been requesting at least a sound byte, so here it is: no turning back
it was recorded at my old friend paul ray's studio on a 4 track, with yours truly playing everything! very shortly i will have all of the song bytes from orphans as well as the lyrics and everything pertinent about each song on the website. i will post it right here when that happens!!!!
