      11th   While using a friend's computer, I learned that 
               because your computer may not recognize the
               typefaces I've used on various pages (including 
               the home page) of this website, you may not be
               viewing it in the form it was created.  With 
               that in mind, I apologize for any irregularities
               in spacing or overall appearance.  And if you
               are experiencing problems or technical
               difficulties of any kind with the site, by all
               means use the
Contact Mil page to let me know.

               fantastic cover of Michael McDermott's "Kung Fu Videos".  
               For more info or to check out upcoming show dates, visit brian-fitzpatrick.com.

      July 2001

       8th    I don't know how many of you notice things like hit
                counters on websites, but the one on this site's 
                homepage indicates that artistinsane.com has had
                had over 700 visitors since it debuted on the internet
                in Feb.  Thanks to all of you for that, and I hope
                it continues to be a place you want to return again
                and again!!!

               That said, I would like to add that very few of you
                have chosen to make it your own by contributing
                your thoughts on the site's discussion board.  So 
                let's make a positive addition to the site together
                by changing that today!  I've wiped out all the old
                posts, leaving plenty of space for you to voice your
                opinions.  So if there are things you like about the
                site, things you agree with, or things that absolutely
                drive you CRAZY...by all means "Share The 
                Insanity" on the
Discussion Board now!!!

       8th    Congrats to Dale Earnhardt, Jr. for turning
                 tragedy to triumph with his commanding victory at
                 the Pepsi 400 in Daytona last night!!!

                   who loves Shakespeare to also enjoy Nascar
                  Winston Cup racing...but hey, this is artistinsane!)
