Might as well start this up on the new forum.
I'm Jason, owner of the site. I recently moved to San Francisco's East Bay from San Diego last year with my wife and 3-year-old son.
I've been running this site since the day Ghosts of the Great Highway came out in November 2003. I originally owned sunkilmoon.com because Mark didn't have an Internet presence, but then his lawyer came after me in April 2004 so I gave up the domain and bought sadreminders.com.
I first heard Red House Painters in 1994 on alternative radio. On a late-night freeform radio show, he played "Medicine Bottle" and I was floored. I've been hooked ever since!
