Brilliant. The man is ... a genius. I mean it. I wish I too could have my own perfume. But I will have to wait, wait until I can reach thousands with a power such as his.

He has represented the United States at various national and international events and forums

If there ever was a time to say "NOT IN MY NAME!" this is it.

Listen to his Star Spangled Banner- he works in the riff to Smoke on the Water. That's deep!

Mefites, I challenge you to put aside your irony and celebrate this man's honest accomplishments.

You will do this; I request it.

Bambi and Yanni...



...separated at birth?

I think so.

But, ya know, I applaud his "influence[s] of Christian, Hindu, Sikh, Muslim, Jewish, Tibetan, and Chinese ancestry inherited from his forebears [that] ... instilled in him a fierce desire to erase international differences in the ways human beings care for one another" and I hope he donates lots to worthy causes.

According to Bambi, “A unified humanity can collectively resolve problems… Divided, we only serve to create them.”

...why is this man not running for office??

bambi may have perfume and multi-theological influences, but "well-crafted pop/rock" sensation ravi has a culture of integrity.
neener neener.

Pyramid, can't let you get away with that lame attempt at validating this train wreck of a carbon life form called Bambi. Charles Shmarles. The arrangements are horrid and the production I could do on my Mac.

Professional level dreck..INDEED!!! Although I have to admit, I love the picture of him wailing on guitar in the head wrap.

Truly, we are ONE.

Except when it interferes with profits, I guess.

Anyone who proudly displays their photos of them with such international superstars as Bruce Hornsby and Philip Michael Thomas Has to be worshipped.

Shane, I'm with you - I also like this line - "influence[s] of Christian, Hindu, Sikh, Muslim, Jewish, Tibetan, and Chinese ancestry inherited from his forebears [that] ... instilled in him a fierce desire to erase international differences in the ways human beings care for one another"

j.p. Hung, did you even listen to Bambi's renditions of the Greatest Love of All and From A Distance? "War is when people fight...." Daring. Organ, sax, and cymbal rushes on Track 3? Track 11 with seagulls, sitars, and pan flute? Who else takes such risks?

Our company is committed in its efforts to produce products of excellence, and it is our absolute goal to do our part in making a contribution to alleviating the causes of those suffering from homelessness, hunger, disease, and despair. Ah, despair, my personal favorite. Right up there with hunger and disease at last. I can't wait for Bambi to alleviate my cause!

jp hung - i'm not going to argue the artistic signficance of this record, as i can't ... but i'm telling you that the arrangements and the musician ship used here are professional-level ... if you can't get past your understandable revulsion of what he's doing to hear that some craftmanship exists in this record, that's your loss ... the people who play on this are in the pocket, even if the tunes suck

To all of you - parents, family, relatives, associates, friends, and to friends I’ve not yet met - I say, “Thank You!” For it is in this simple statement that I can truly express the feelings with which my heart overflows …Thank you for being!

You might want to add pan-flutist extraordinaire Damian to that list.

Hey look, his album's got the same title as Bambi's!

From Bambi's biography:
"Bambi . . . has been featured in the media on topics such as corporate giving, human rights abuses, matters relating to world trade, and technology related issues affecting mankind."

Which led me to this inevitable conclusion:

I'd forgotten about Raffi. Damn your hides. I really had totally forgotten all about him. I had forgotten about Damien, too.

And that Damian album with the same title is a scary coincidence.

insomnia_lj? Please don't do that ever again.
