I would be surprised if Jack has a problem w/ this endeavor -- I was at the Philly show Monday night, and it was an endless parade of film clips from countless films -- do you think he got Warner Brothers' permission to superimpose Bush's face over that of the banjo-playing redneck from 'Deliverance'?  I think not.

so unless PIAS authorizes a collection (which Jack will probably not see a
penny from) i wouldn't get your hopes up for somthing original and
definitive - but then again stranger things have happened....

i'll see him tonight - maybe i can pick his brain on this

i would only hold off for fear they'll end up on ebay by some greedy
bastard who never learned to share.  and with the new intellectual
property laws and copyright stuff, somebody might get in trouble.
