Hey thanks for the quick response. I figured you just got Christian from my email...Christopher is my middle name....just James Melbourne will suffice. Anyways, again I thought the article was great. Frequently when our crew has been interviewed by journalists, I've felt like the writers of a publication have a pre-set agenda going into the interviews, and when the articles come to us in print, our words have been manipulated to fufill their needs. I've come away from those articles feeling misrepresented and used. This was a totally different experience, it was really rad to see the thoughts and ideas that our crew holds important bieng conveyed in an article, so thank you.

Hey James...

Actually, we were short of space and couldn't manipulate your words, so we manipulated your name instead. We chose Christian because of that dreamy Mel Gibson, and as for calling us journalists, we totally forgive you.
