  1. Yeah, Illnoise was really good. I haven’t heard Drunkard’s Prayer thoroughly enough to say, but I might have given it to DP. Both are really good, though. I especially liked ‘Casimir Pulaski Day’.

  2. Fantastic! I like the concept Scott. Good stuff here. Some interesting choices!

    SSLYBY is an excellent name, I must agree!
