    Hey, I didn't get any offers for Creatures of the Deep yet. I think @frenchcricket was thinking about it. Fancy having a crack? I think it could use some extra instruments too.

    Was not familiar, with the half an orange phrase in regards to soulmates, it worked for me as a detail that would be overlooked by most, but that someone who knew the person would notice.

    Really appreciate the compliment from you and Tomo. I actually went to college to learn Japanese (years ago) because I had someone at a label tell me they could push my music in Japan but it never fell through. Looks like I still have a bit of the same touch. I'd LOVE to tour Japan, that would be a blast!
