ADI was awesome. Alyasha and company had a really good thing going. It's too bad it didn't last long at all.

thanks guys...

yeah ed, love that pic, too. gabe morford in the slap gallery. ill.

AE, that's always been the curse of both Alyasha and Andy Howell... too ahead of the curve.

I agree that Alyasha Moore and Andy Howell were way too progressive, which was only an unfortunate thing business-wise. Oh well.

That column that Ted Newsome ran in TWS called "NY Minute" was great. I looked forward to it every month. I also looked forward to Ed Templeton's Brain Floss... speaking of columns.

That first flick is one of my all-time favorites.
