Re: Article in the Boise Weekly

Very nice, Charles. Thanks for adding your piece of the musical pie to the 
Boise music scene!  You didn't have to promote Xperimentus...just 
on the article is nice enough. So you get a bonus. :)

I believe Ryan plans to write a Part II of that article in the future, 
dives into more details of the looping phenomenon. I look forward to that.
