Treasures Untold in e-mail Drafts

It’s June, and I’m finally dusting off the blog.  Here are my obligatory apologetic first two lines.  In doing so, along with purging e-mails and a glass of beer, I’ve come across a few gems of ideas and more importantly a few lists in some e-mail drafts.

List 1: Tattoo Country

My concept for a tattoo has long been the same: Get a tattoo for each country that I visited.  The idea is that it will evolve along with me.  The more I travel, the more ink I get.  Currently I only have 2 of 9.

Canada, Mexico, Turkey, Israel, Jordan, Niger, Burkina Faso, United States, France

List 2: Set List from Spiritualized Concert at the Wiltern in 2012:
