    Rangers WELP. I moved to Tasmania.

    Yes. I have gone mental. Apparently.

    No. I have no idea what I'm doing.

    Have I ever?

    Besides living in a house my old lady bought.

    Anyhoo.

    Just putting it out there for anybody who was hoping I had died.

    Sorry.

    HOHOHO.

    Good to hear from you you fucking goofball. If you got a woman to buy you a house you're clearly doing better than most.

    Jesus. Tasmania? That's quite the move. What was the motivation on that decision ? Hope they at least have a good cigar place! Glad to hear you aren't pushing daisys! Cheers!

    I think it's the similarity to Jersey City that it doesn't have.

    HO HO HO

    I've seen pictures. It looks really nice for someone who has had a bellyful of "civilization".

    Taswegians refer to them as "angry burgers", but yeah, they are currently under a great cloud of doom...

    It's actually so peaceful and beautiful here it's somewhat disquieting.

    I'm dealing with it.

    Playing the keys like a madman, working on the house, and getting back into shape on the elliptical/cross trainer and walking the mutts all over place.

    It's been great.

    WTF I'm going to do for "work"... I have NO IDEA.

    Gotta do something.

    1.) Gonna run outta loot at some point.

    2.) Gonna go mental if I don't get some work stress going.


    Anyhoo.

    Happy to be here.

    ALL my kit is still in America in storage.

    All the audio BS and my American household.

    Kinda waiting to find a proper grand piano in NA and put it in with the shipping container.

    Long story.

    Keyboards?!

    Based on what I've seen of your location, I assumed you were making your own instuments out of bamboo and animal skulls.

    Pretty sure that you can't grow bamboo in Antarctic conditions. It's also unwise to go near any 'animal' skulls down there. Probably best to run away.

    I didn't check the geography. I assumed Tasmania was several clicks south of Beatlemania.

    Well then, here's a job opportunity for Slippy.

    He can become a coach. Get a Tasmanian team into the NHL.

    He needs to dream big; the crushing defeat of the Canadiens at the hands of the Tasmanian Drop Bears*.



    *Naturally, Devils is already in use in the NHL.

    I never have to make reservations because Tasmania always knows when I'm coming.
