Hmm--just got back from the dance club in town I seldom go to anymore. All my friends have abandoned the old hang out, I can see why now--nothing succeeds like success, and now it's full of a more, shall I say, "plastic" sort? Ah well, I know the owner, glad his business has picked up, since he's ha...

Before I start, I would like to compliment Krish on another intriguing post . . .

Personal messages from band members are not likely, in my opinion, not with a tour going on now. I guess it depends on how much your dad has--the new thirty-fifth disc is good, but I think he'd appreciate a bootleg from a show he went to. Contact the traders for that, but you might come up with some...

On the road with theproffet, with spoilers eventually . . .

Uh, in a word, the operative phrase now would be "stunned." Lordy, lordy, funny how I can forget how much these shows mean to me. And to think I almost bowed out this tour leg . . . Serendipity is a wonderful thing though. With no local fan driver to help me make it to Chicago, fortunately, Michele ...
