    Any other young hippies out there like Tori Amos? I used to listen to her everyday and I still do listen to her quite a bit. She is just so awesome.

    Also, kinda unrelated but can anyone suggest some songs I should download or any cool bands I should check out? I really like all types of music but raggae seems to be my favorite. I really like music that is upbeat and happy so feel free to give me any ideas.

    CocoRosie is quite the awesome band too.

    I just covered every genre except for country and heavy metal and punk rock...

    Having listened to Tori in the past, I can say that Ani, Spearhead, Sky Parade, Blind Melon, and Eagle-Eye all make more beautiful and powerful music than she does. In my opinion, obviously... :p

    "Tori Amos is a close personal friend of mine."

    That's awesome. I absolutely love Tori. Her music is so beautiful and moving. I did hear about her new cd coming out and I can't wait to get it.

    PS. Thanks for posting the lovely pictures of her.
