I really like your list. My own list has some pretty serious Dan influence going on, you know, from the days of the radio show.

Some of these I haven't had the chance to really break into yet.
Para One
Machinefabriek
Tim Hecker
Ellen Allien and Apparat

Chicago here we come.

Oh, wait. You aren't going. Sorry, Dan. You see now how integral you are in my life.

I keep having dreams that we move to Philly.

I know, it's too bad to not see everybody, but I know there will be another occasion where we all get together. Besides, I'm going to Florida so I really can't complain (have fun in Chicago in the dead of winter). The Ellen Allien and Apparat is a definite thumbs up. The others I haven't had much time with. I know Para One's got some great songs on his album, but I dunno if the album as a whole is top 10 material. Give Beese & Brtschitsch's album "In the Long Run" a try too. As always, you are missed.
