Hi Bruno, Shade Law like your music and she wrote me you are awesome. Is it okay for you that she made this video with a sequence of your great song &raqu;Bad Thoughts%laquo; - please let me know if it is okay for you. And do you have actually more downloads of your CD culture shock? It is a great pity that easyjet was not able to realize your fly from Switzerland to Berlin. All the best - Jens
