Nicole, I’m not sure where to start because I know this will not even begin to accurately express the love and gratitude that I hold in my heart for you. Here goes anyway – I couldn’t be any more thrilled for you and the next step you’ve chosen to take on your path of Life. One thing I know for certain: your words inspire greatness. Even amidst your brutal honesty lies a passion that truly makes the world a better place. Your honesty makes the world a better place because you actually and genuinely care. Aside from your in-depth, always on point album reviews and write ups (which I’ve always thoroughly enjoyed), your words have also helped me through some pretty dark times, personally. Thank you for taking to the time to write me during my bid with ADOC. You can’t possibly know what that meant to me. I can’t say that I’m gonna miss you any more than I already do (for obvious reasons) and I know leaving Denver isn’t the easiest thing you’ve ever decided to do but I know you will shine wherever you go. Vegas just won BIG TIME. Keep kickin’ ass young lady.
– Ryan “Inkline” Howell
ps – I suck at gambling but I’m totally coming to Vegas to lose some of your money in a slot machine or something. Bet that up. Ha!
Point Out the Bounce culminates in Nicole’s Going Away Party, 12/11/15 at Lost Lake Lounge.
