So yesterday I had a good long talk with one of the women I work with. At one point, she said to me, "You know, there's this local alt-country band that wants me to play violin with them, but I'm not really into that. What I'd really like to play is heavy, dark gothic rock." So we're going to see what happens with that; after hearing that she wasn't familiar with groups like Miranda Sex Garden or Clan of Xymox, much less Mors Syphilitica or Rhea's Obsession, I told her I'd bring her some music to check out, and I think at some point we may see about playing and/or writing together. I'm always interested in meeting new musicians and new collaborators.
