     I played a few shows together with them and have kept in minimal touch
with them. The two main male members moved to the Bay Area while Veronica
stayed behind in Pittsburgh. I visited the ORI leader Mark a couple months
ago when I was out there and he showed me a couple pieces of wacky new
music software that he's been working on. They haven't done any ORI shows
out there or released anything new, though they've considered it, however
they have been making new material under the name Wizard Master and were
talking about performances for the future.

     ORI was a one-of-a-kind. They were easily my favorite band from that
region and playing shows with them was always a blast. "ORIcon '99" was
probably the best... along with 6 geek bands, there was a fashion show of
"reinformation-wear", a baking contest, and indiscriminate hay bales.
