Cheddar biscuits. 'Nuff said.

My good friend Neil Atkinson's new band, Mosaicist, has a new CD out, and are beginning to tour the UK.

Neil is the mop-haired lad standing just behind the group's lovely lead singer Vic. He lives in Leeds, England.

Back in the day, Neil and I used to play in a band together, and performed at the BBC Radio One Annual Music Festival.

I'm anxious to hear their new stuff! He said it's kind of prog-rock-dance stuff, no doubt with blazing guitars and smart drumming. Cruise over to their Web site, sample some songs, and let him know what you think!

Davi Jay rocks The Big Easy

Brother Dave rocked the house as Roy DeLaCroix in the movie Streets of Blood, with Sharon Stone, Val Kilmer, and 50 Cent. His girl Jenn sent the following e-mail update:

Well, Dave and I are in Louisianna this week while he films for the movie "Streets of Blood" w/ Sharon Stone, Val Kilmer and 50 Cent. They picked him up last night from the hotel at 8:00 pm and dropped him back off this morning at 6:00 am. He had a lot of fun....they put him in make up and costume (see photo below) to the play the role of Ray DelaCroix, who to me looks more like Ali G! :-) Costume included sweatsuit, big diamond earing studs, tatoo of dice on his neck, hat, sunglasses, and sprayed on freckels! They pimped him out then had him in a pimped out Green (yes bright green) Caprice Classic. He got to perform his own stunts - which he was very excited about - which included racing down an alley in the car, spinning out, jumping the curb and hitting a set of trash cans. They told him he did such a good job at it they suspected he must drive like that all the time! Anyway he came home (well to our hotel) very excited, not to mention the fact that they used powdered B12 for him to snort to look like he was snorting Cocaine - so he came back w/ plenty of energy after such a long night of shooting and lots of great stories. I just wanted to share this update with each of you as I know this is an exciting experience for Dave and I, but it is nice to share with all of you as you all have been great in supporting us with your enthusiasm for Dave's career and well, now you can say you know a Movie Star (regardless of how much it embarrasses Dave!)

Good on ya, Davi. Represent.
