    Some pictures are really awesome, thanks for sharing it with us.
    The picture taken taken in southern utah,1999 is one of my favourite photographs:
    Robin lying on the desert sand.

    Robin,Just out of curiosity,have you ever played a six stringer bass? Did you enjoy playing it?

    Thanks for the photos. You and Kevin belong in a loud band together. 🙂 Here’s to high hopes…

    Life IS good! Southern Utah is essential….and Edward Abbey can help take you back….”Desert Solitaire” is keeping the experience alive for me…you’ve checked him out, right? Arches, Canyonlands, Zion, Escalante Staircase and Bryce…they all do wonders for the soul….and there’s that Russel Fong axe in that Union Chapel photo, right?

    We love your music. Really.

    Looking very hot at September (where you belong) Sound.

    There needs to be a Kevin + Robin group, like, yesterday.

    Preferably with a vaguely Californian, 70’s-sounding name like “Shields n’ Guthrie.”

    And it should look and sound like this:

    Hear hear, on the In-N-Out. Scrumptiousness.

    Every picture on here has a picture of you on it.

    in yesterday’s entry, you wrote ‘my, almost feminine, multitasking capabilities’…..there’s no need for a comma after ‘my’ and ‘feminine’. it should read ‘my almost feminine mulitasking capabilities’. there’s no need to be shy about it. we all have nipples for a reason. the reason is, we all start out as female. then some time in embryonic development, if there’s a Y chromosome around, the other stuff starts to develop into male parts. but we get to keep the nipples. so, just thank them for your artistic abilities!!!!
    as for your comment about ‘fans’: i’m not sure what you’re trying to say…i’m sure you are a fan of SOMEONE. someone you admire. someone who has abilities that surpass your own in some way or another. listen, mr. quadruple Capricorn. i have three planets in Cancer and one in Scorpio. and just the right ones, too, to give you a run for your money. thinking you’re alone at the top sounds horibly lonely and dangerous, so i wouldn’t recommend it. might i suggest you try to figure out where the impulse that makes you breathe comes from….. p.s. just listened to ‘Everlasting’ again after quite a while and found it wasn’t just my imagination the first time around; it is quite wonderful and lovely!!!! just like your lovely daughter and her lovely mother, with whom you made your lovely daughter, and a large amount of lovely music that will be listened to and enjoyed hundreds of years from now just as we listen to Pacelbel and Mozart today. so i think you’re entitled to relax and enjoy life. of course, if none of this is relevant, just delete it…….

    what kind of mixing board is that at september sound? It looks like a beast. Do you still use that thing? Also, what is that white thing behind you? Call me curious george, but what part of southern utah were you in that picture? It looks like your on some kind of mesa and the world just drops off into the blue sky

    re: me at the union chapel london 1999 – this is the first time I ever played instrumental music on my own

    I’m doing that on Saturday (playing instrumental music on my own for the first time). I’m scared out of my fucking mind. Pass the Klonopin, please.

    Can I just say that I love that photo of Robin with the headless fish – look at his cheeky face! Robin’s cheeky face, obviously… erm…

    Am I ever going to be able to see lumiere again? Saw the show in Brighton last summer and would love to bring some mates so they can appreciate what I’m on about!.
