Darkness. Oh darkness. Do not tread on me! I am light and I will destroy
you instantly and forever. I have seen your face before, and you are
nothing. Do not come near my window or door. Do not come near my heart. I
am intelligence, the light of Mind. I am spirit, the light of Truth. I am
love, the light of Life. Do not suppose you can withstand my gaze. I live
forever, even as you die. Your deluded and perverted notions of afterlife,
and martyrdom, suicide as sacrifice, obtain not here. Here you die in vain,
useless. My brothers and sisters, children, wives and husbands, my family
of mankind live on in spite of your terror, of your dream of death, for we
live in Spirit and in Truth, while you, oh darkness, are never more than
darkness. I will shine into the farthest reach of life. I will vanquish you
to non existence, obliterate you by my righteous might. Do you think to
frighten me? Do you think to kill me? Think again, oh darkness. For I am
light. In my light all are comforted. In my light all can see. By my light,
darkness shall perish, so that all may live.


Merchandise update:

I want to apologize for the delay in delivery of the Monkees merchandise
from the US tour. I expect it will be sent out to all of you within the
next 2 weeks.

The delay is caused by the fact that, since there were so many orders (over
$3500 worth of items!) that we decided at the time to order direct from the
person who does the merchandise for Davy Jones. The payment for the items
went direct to the office of the tour manager who is in New York City….
Their office was not directly involved in the problems, but their office
was closed until Monday the 17th. We have not yet been able to contact the
accountant at this office to check the status of the payment, but as soon
as it is confirmed, the items will be shipped to me and then out to you.

We felt at the time that this would happen very fast, but major issues
caused this unexpected delay. Please be patient, you will get the items you
ordered. The only items out of stock were long-sleeve shirts and magnets,
for which you will get a refund.
