alright, folks..

as i'm sure you know, marky's got management, was picked up by starbucks and is not doing too terribly, but the state of his backing here in LA is quite sad. we want him to have reason to come back to the west coast. i ask a very simple thing of you: click here and request that 100.3 the sound (best radio station this city has seen in years) play his new album 'opium' or single 'tuesday.' hell, also request they play 'ghosts' from the album of the same name. it will only take you a few seconds. if you feel like going a step further, write to jason bentley, the program director at KCRW. they are great about getting new artists known and play his peers already - the frames, josh ritter, damien rice. if you live elsewhere, you could (should!) also pimp him locally.

PLEASE AND THANK YOU!

also, seriously, i can't believe this community is so small. hmm..

In honour of Mark's recent gigs in New York, and his determination to still relay the horror of his flight to Australia, I bring you a blast from the past.

I sat bolt up-right...."'what ??""

I got up and walked around ---was sitting in a coffee shop--in the ""valley"" and Rob & cherie walk by--I could have cried --if I wasn't trying so hard to remember how I knew them !!!haha

IT BEATS ME

did I watch you wash away your life and polish up the forks and knifes and left the kitchen crystal clear did you put me in my resting place beside the cups there was no place for fear

there's someone calling for me just see a new talk don't listen to me

we go through the hoops before you know it beats me

did I watch you wash away your life and polish up the forks and knifes and I watch the crystal disappear did I try to run to your defence and make some jokes at my expense and watch you boil some water for the sake of it

there's someone calling for me just see a new talk don't listen to me

hail mary, motherless grace
