Youth Trip

Dear World,

Voxtrot have begun the process of putting together material for a new album. As soon as there is more specific information regarding this, I will let you know. In the mean time, I have begun doing what I hope will be a monthly radio show for RADAR 97.8 FM , Lisbon (Portugal). This is a tremendous opportunity, and I am very grateful to the people at RADAR for asking me to contribute. The first show is called, "Youth Trip," and although it aired last weekend, it can be downloaded from the Voxtrot site (as a podcast) here .

If my attempt(s) at HTML is unsuccessful, simply navigate to www.voxtrot.net.

Thank you for listening.

I wrote you a letter... I'm afraid to actually send it. You don't know me and I don't know you, I'm just a fan, amazed by your lyricism... I had to let you know somehow.

-I've decided to just post the letter here, since I have no means of reaching you elsewhere-

Dear Ramesh,
About a month ago I rediscovered Voxtrot and quickly asked myself why I had stopped listening in the first place. During my re-infatuation, I decided to go online and see what the band was currently up to, which is how I stumbled across your blog. I read absentmindedly in the beginning, enamored just like everyone else by your capability to make just about any sentence sound amazing. And then, when you wrote about loneliness and being alone, you touched a nerve of mine that I haven't been able to let go of. You put it into words that I've had in my head for so long, but have neither the skill or will to actually write down. I'm eighteen, and I'll be heading off to college in the fall, in Arizona, 400 miles away from home. I'm afraid, yet excited. I read your post about the orange and how it went great with the chocolate and mint colors and how happy you were to be able to see something that simple and enjoy it. It makes me think of my life at this point, I just want to get out of high school and go off into the world. I want to enjoy the orange, the mint, the chocolate; far away from all I know. Yet, I'm afraid of the loneliness that comes after the enjoyment. I read something about a woman in a cabin watching a moth burn in a candle's flame....will I become that? Just sitting in some dorm, watching time go by? I don't know why I'm even telling you this, of all people, I guess I just don't feel any connection to those around me. Not even with my best friend, she's such a perfect idealist that it's difficult to tell her reality. I don't know what else to say, other than what I said before... that I just had to get to you somehow. I wish I knew how it would feel to be free.

P.S. If you choose to write back to this, my email is miawallace6@yahoo.com, and your podcast for Radar was great.

I want your music library. Legally, of course.
