First, the "real-world" love: many thanks to the crowd at this past Friday’s show at the Paradise in Boston; it was an amazing way to cap off the year for us, what with all the worked-up, sweaty geeks shouting and tossing a near-record pile of panties at us. Oh, and Jonathan was pretty good, too. Plus, Storm finally got the Xmas present he’s been waiting 38 years for (see left, thanks to fan Suzi for the pic), and he wasted no time when he got home terrifying his cats with it.
Also, big thanks to the many fine folks at Harmonix, who allowed us to eat some of their pizza, tour the offices, see a frickin’ laser, and screw around on Rock Band 2 for a couple hours Friday afternoon. A big bunch of them came to our show that night, which was cool, even if they did shout out a terrible request or two. You are forgiven, Harmonixites; everything’s gonna be fine, fine, fine.
