Okay Ken, I thought it might be something more concrete than that.  I've 
got 4 or 5 tunes completed enough that I meant to post concept mixes but 
one thing after another has placed this soundly in the column of hollow 
promises, so I'll make no claim whatsoever that tonight I'll post a 
re-make of Rainbow, and Crystaleyes, So Hot Tonight, Soft Hearted Woman, 
Candle Against The Wind, and that oldest promise of all - something 
against your 552.

Actually, I finally made it to your blog last night and listened to at 
least a piece of everything you've got posted.  Really interesting stuff 
Ken.  After hearing some of your other material I'd probably play around 
with something else other than 552.  I dunno, Blue LEDs, Windsock, Maybe 
Later (got both vocal and musical ideas for that one, same for Carnival 
Milk) whatever.  It's all uniformly well done.  Nice...

p,s,  Stop me if my assumption about using Maybe Later and Carnival Milk 
in LAU-CB is not your wish.  Also, let me know your feelings about 
mutating them into "songs."   What is the meaning of Milk in the name 
(just curious - my thoughts for lyrics were along the line of treating 
carnival as a metaphor with acts as events in life)?  Would you edit a 
shorter, say no longer than 4 mins, Maybe Later?  Or do you mind if I do?
