(NOTE TO READERS: The following is an email sent recant an emails former remark)

SAL —

Strike the word EMULATE from previous mailing and the record... it's a horrible word and categorically the wrong word.

emulate
v 1: strive to equal or match, especially by imitating; "He is emulating the skating skills of his older sister" 2: imitate the function of (another system), as by modifying the hardware or the software 3: compete with successfully; approach or reach equality with; "This artist's drawings cannot emulate his water colors"

I'm not interested in matching or equaling anything other artists have done. The word I really would like to insert in place of it is IMBIBE.

imbibe
v 1: take in, also metaphorically; "The sponge absorbs water well"; "She drew strength from the minister's words" [syn: absorb, suck, soak up, sop up, suck up, draw, take in, take up] 2: take (gas, light or heat) into a solution [syn: assimilate] 3: take in liquids; "The patient must drink several liters each day"; "The children like to drink soda" [syn: drink] 4: receive into the mind and retain; "Imbibe ethical principle.

Sorry that this is such a strange email, but at this point in my life (and after a few drinks) I have become very particular in the choice of words I use... especially when in relation to other artists and myself. (What a bore this message is and yes I'm a mad man... but I had to correct this).

NITE - Tom

P.S. I must post this to the blog for posterity sake... sorry
