    I just downloaded the 14mb version of the INB video thingy. after the download, I got an error message regarding something about compression. anyway, I have audio, but no video. is this happening to anyone else? I don't want to waste another hour and a half trying again if it will just do the same thing.

    it's been almost 5 years since the 1st time i fell inlove with school of fish and after the local rock station here stopped playing their songs, i never heard from them again. i'm from the philippines and can't get so much of josh and the likes. anyway, earlier today i discover the mix tape i made 4 years ago and heard the recorded (scratchy one) song of school of fish so i decided to check sites of josh. i just found out -- wait, lemme clear that up -- that he is DEAD?! goner and all?! i almost cried in front of my PC while i was reading through the notes here. i still am a bit shaken and still can't believe what i read. it depressess me. his songs helped me survived the last parts of my high school and...god. i still really can't believe it.

    Josh's stepdad Henry here. In Royalston, MA where I live, a woman named Lydia Musco has carved several totem poles in the past. It occurred to me that a totem pole was a wonderful symbol to present in Josh's memory. The pole is 20 feet in length (six go in the ground) and 20 inches in diameter. This leaves 14 feet to carve animals that meant much to Josh: crow, wolf, bear, hummingbird and dragonfly.I was amazed when I saw the finished product, and made a short video to let Josh's mom and sister see what was happening. I'll try to have the video up on the web soon so you can all enjoy.And Lydia, thanks for a wonderful job.Henry

    It's a hard time now, waiting for Spirit Touches Ground to be released and for all the connections between us to come alive. Laura encourages me to think of this time as Hibernating bears storing up their energy for the spring…Seeds in the earth gathering nourishment to emerge, grow, and bloom…The quiet of the hour before dawn and the rising of the sun…Apparently we're waiting for the last element of the design to be completed, and then a release date will be set, and we'll go into high gear.In the meantime… one of the videos is at last ready to put up on the site, thanks to the technical expertise of Jon Lukas. It's the biography video, the one made for the release of Inarticulate Nature Boy. Any day, or moment, now. The "Window " video will come shortly after.And an important event-- Josh's stepdad Henry has had a totem pole carved to honor Josh and his love of Native American culture. It is beautiful and powerful and incorporates many of the animal spirits dear to Josh. On August 7, the totem pole will be mounted at a place Josh returned to many summers. Henry videotaped a rising of the totem pole, done as a test before the totem pole is transported and installed. The tape turned out to be so moving that we want to share it with you. So, within several weeks, this video also should be viewable on the site.Keep the faith.MarilynJosh's Mom
