That was amazing.

For finding things, I am a fan of the Jan Hankl Flank-Pat System. His Scissor System is brilliant, too.

The actual best advice for finding something is "Look again more carefully where it's supposed to be."

UPDATE! His latest song (Just Imagine) has the following description:
Imagine I’m putting a full song and video out next Friday and then an E.P to Spotify and streaming platforms the following Friday. Ooh that’s nice isn’t it
