That also pretty much answers any questions about location being or not being important to the deal getting process, especially through Taxi. The only thing better than me getting a deal is another Taxi member getting a deal. I'm inspired by your success and I'll have one of those tees... or maybe a tea instead. English is so wierd. Congratulations! Dave

Congratulations! Daveuuups - yeah sure I meant "tea" thanks for the kind words - I think you (as well as a couple other members) are an inspiration for lot's of us. "listen to dave" is a sentence I recently read more than once...;)yeah, "location" doesn't seem to matter that much here - I live near Zurich/Switzerland, L.A. is really not around the corner...;)

Yay Martin, congrats, that's a cool placement! Soon you'll be able to say your music has been released on Sony/BMG ...Even if you never made a single "Rappen" from it, the credit alone should certainly impress people and open new doors.matto
