Re: OT: Gig with Damo
That's awesome you got to play with the legendary Damo! Can you tell
me (us) more about how he pulls it off? Does he really just get a
group of people and run a full imrov set with everyone doing their
best to keep together or does he have some kind of guiding strategy
for the thing.
He seems like a really nice guy too.

Till now you seriously considered yourself to be the body and to have a
form. That is the primal ignorance which is the root cause of all trouble.
