Oh, and hopefully a FatGreg tour! :smoker:

When he spoke at MPMF he mentioned a Whigs comp coming out this year and he did say something about a Whigs tour.  I don't know if he was joking or not, but he didn't seem to be.

When was MPMF? The reason I'm asking is that he posted this on the Web in October. I'd give Trixi's left teet for a Whigs tour!

Question Submitted by Paul
I've seen you at the 9:30 with the Whigs, and I must say it changed my life. After seeing the twilight singers and seeing you belt out some whigs material, I was wondering. Would you play with John and Rick again?  Or is it just not in the cards for awhile?

Response
Paul-
I've played with both John and Rick in the last few years, so that is not an issue in the least. What I believe you're asking is, will we play together as The Afghan Whigs and I don't see that happening, honestly. What we did together is something I will cherish forever, but we stopped because we had taken it as far as it could go and that is something I would hate to fuck with.

and shaving my fucking beard off on Saturday (don't ask).


I have to ask...

Why shave it off?

At least share a photo with us before it is gone.

I think you'd look smashing with a beard!



This year, I'm looking forward to nothing. No expectations, no letdowns. I'm just going to go with the flow and let things fall where they may.

It was the latter part of September.  Like I said, I couldn't tell if he was serious or not.  He seems like the misinformation loving type.  I guess we'll see but that statement you just posted seems a whole lot more earnest than what he said at MPMF.

Hmmm..

Starting grad school...AGAIN (particularly taking my YA resources class this semester - and getting/having to read 50+ YA books for this class alone)

Getting to spend a weekend in San Diego with Brian for one of my classes (ok, so i'll be in class all day, but we'll have Saturday night free!)

hopefully not having to pay a shitload of taxes, and perhaps even getting a little back (but i'd be happy with not having to pay anything)

Spending time with Brian and the kitties!

QOTD

What video game system did you have growing up (or first get as an adult)?



We had an Atari 800 which doubled as a home computer and video game system.

My brothers and I had a hand-me down Pong set from some second cousins, then an Atari 5200, then a Nintendo, then a Super Nintendo, then I stopped thinking video games were interesting.  

In college my roommates and I had a Playstation, now I have the computer and the BF's playstation 2.

We had an Atari, a Tandy Computer (complete with a tape deck instead of a disk drive), a Coleco, and then finally a Nintendo.

My first was an Atari 400. The one without a keyboard, per se, just a touchpad. Then we stepped up in class and got an Atari 800. My guess is that my dad was sick of the touchpad.

We had an Atari 2600.  I also was jealous of my friend, who had InTellivision.  For some reason, 6 year-old me loved playing casino games on it.  

As an adult, the first gaming system we acquired was a Sega Dreamcast.  Now we also have an XBox and a GameCube.  My sister inherited the Atari, which still works perfectly.

Early on, we had a Tandy computer.  It was a very early IBM compatible, but had no hard drive.  Just a 3.5" floppy and a 5.25".  It was supposed to be for school, but we discoverd Sierra text-based adventure games!  

Later on, we had a Sega Genesis, which we thought was just about the greatest thing in the world.  If someone ever had to play Sonic the Hedgehog for my life, I'd pick by brother.
