I'm cool with wherever, you know that! As long as I'm there "I Made it" so to speak.... If it will make any difference in funding the shoot in Thailand, I'll not require a return ticket as I believe I may have a second chance in an entertainment career there. I have been speaking to a Dr. Xang Xi who has promised me a "top job" once I arrive. I have no idea what that entails as he alluded to a three to four week recovery time.
If you guys need a sherpa or a yak, I'm in.
Buddy, it's all good. Besides, the way that Markie and Stevo speak of you, I expect to see signs of stigmata the next time we meet. Didn't realize you were a Hoosier at heart.
I'm not sure where you got my latest promo photo, but thanks for the free PR. You know, any PR is good PR. Maybe Jesse can get me into his diet thing?

I was on my way to Portland Oregon where I had booked passage to Thailand on a container vessel to save JFB some money on a plane ticket. I had decided to fly in and spend a few days checking out the local strip clubs (of which there are many) but wound up detained by the TSA instead. I had wrapped a bundle of long red cinnamon-scented candles with some electrical tape and placed my analog alarm clock on top of it incase there would be no electricity in the remote village we would be doing our photo shoot in. Everything was going fine until I had to put my luggage in the X-ray machine and then all hell broke loose! They confiscated everything! All of the sudden I wound up in need of an attorney and Dr.XX has stopped returning my calls, I fear the photo shoot may have to happen in Cali. after all.
BTW Where can I find a pair of ass-less swimming trunks like Andrew is wearing in the photo above? I think a big part of Wham!'s success was the closeness between Andrew and George, you just don't see many bands that are comfortable enough with each other to allow a photo of one member groping another's bum like that anymore.
This would never make it's way on to a Carcass record.

I understand that right now you feel violated in every way. I must admit, I bit my tongue when you spoke of your plan for early arrival in Bangkok by container vessel; but not because of your gut instinct to check out the burgeoning Thai club scene. Rather, 'twas my hope that we would land in unison and attack with trademark PowerSerge/DFD/JFB/11Top Gusto, in the finest Bang Stallions Unite Fashion !!!! However, your misadventure brings to light "The Bigger Picture," which clearly points to the inherent need of "the buddy system - no one flies solo," as the teachings of sensei Rex Kwon Do clearly dictate. Believe me. I understand. You're a loose cannon with victory on your mind. Things happen. Clearly, George n' Andrew, in the Wham! heyday, intrinsically understood this tenet as they rose to superstardom. Of course, the chemistry in the aforementioned Wham! photo is undeniable. As for the long red cinnamon candle/analog alarm clock confiscation incident; frankly, Dr.XX isn't happy. For lack of a better analogy, I believe he said he felt, in the incredibly broken English of his interpreter, "jilted at the altar." Which, of course, is a mixed bag. Point is, we've all been let down here. Yes, we will re-group in Sunny, CA, for a rugged Dusty Plains' shoot that will be well-worth the wait. As for your custom trunks, you're in luck, LadStone. I know a groundbreaking seamstress in Los Angeles who specializes in exciting, adventurous, and provocative trunks for all occasions. Your new look will be Totally Bangin'... which in the end, is most important of all.
I agree, Bang Stallions Unite is a great t-shirt idea. I'm sure Serge would agree that the design should be simple, powerful and direct. Thus, I present to you the timeless, classic t-design that can put us over the top. Of course, it's edgy; but that is, in fact, the essence of rock n' roll six-string thunder (in the night):
