Perhaps the Sept. 22 show would be a good time to haul out a t-shirt idea. Say something with the cover of the 'Draining the Glass' picture of Max, a vintage Pat picture (pre-wookie hairdo), and for old times sake, Jackie Chan in a referee costume. Those of us who can't make it would certainly fork over funds for a bootleg and t-shirt package to ease our pain. Nigel Tuffnel says, "...and it makes a great gift, too."

No news is bad news?
Random thought: I have been listening to a Guided by Voices tape a friend gave me and enjoy the (somewhat) JBC-like "Hey, Hey, Spaceman". NASA should use that to get all those shy aliens attention, then -- since most of us prefer the friendly, ET-like ones to visit Earth -- follow it up with "Come Friendly Spacemen." It would be a lot more inviting than whatever the hell that Discovery(?) probe is broadcasting now. (Some Elvis stuff I think.)
