Is it an album? Yes. Is it behind you, reading these words over your shoulder? Yes. Will there be blood? Yes.

Jim Reeves welcomes you...but does he mean it? Yes.

Something's in the sky, something reflected in the soul. Is it a contradiction? Yes. Is it true? Yes.

There is something, something in the color, something in the black, something in the air. You can't touch it, only sense it. Can it be within and without? Yes. Is it life and death, the beyond and the just-behind-you? Yes. And it wears a wide-brimmed hat.

Are we adrift? Yes. Now float on into the black, into the white...into living tenebrism.

Go? Yes.

The sequel to this year's Welcome to My World, this journey will take you through dubstep, ambient, downtempo, IDM, computer games, horror soundtracks, requiems and Catholic Mass, my beloved Louise, sci-fi movie trailers, the sounds of the planets, astrophysicists, Shakespeare, and somehow.....Miles Davis .
