Sniff. It's what he would have wanted.

I really need a stiff drink right now, and indeed am having one.  See, while working in my abovementioned kitchen, a can of puncture repair foam started leaking. I threw it in the sink to contain the mess, but the cooker was on and I was suddenly in the midst of a massive fireball.

Managed to throw the fireblanket on it (moved to above the sink just yesterday) and apart from some frazzled hair and eyebrows there is miraculously no damage done.  Christ, I'm lucky to be alive, let alone still have a boat to live in.

Remedial wine is being drunk.

Good to hear it! I heard it through the grapevine that the boat had been completely destroyed! Wasn't sure how to get in touch with you so checked here :D I was going to organise a gofundme and a series of fundraising gigs and everything. Guess I'll just keep the money I've raised so far then.

Thanks for that. They should get someone like Eoin Coveney to draw that missing piece.:)

Did anyone notice that there is an episode missing in Wagner's Walk? We get the thrilling cliffhanger of Wagner's tank exploding and we wonder has he been killed, "tune in next week"..only to turn the page to discover  all three lads are at a train yard miles away and Mike White has taken over on art duties. Did I miss an explantion in the Meg? Was the art lost or something?

Anyway, I really enjoyed this story, much more than I expected.

So now isn't the best time to mention that I thought these guys were a riff on the Balls Brothers?  :lol:

Good to see you round these parts again Johnny, and congrats on immortality!

Hello Tordelback. I lurk occasionally but I don't know most people here anymore...it scares me.

Getting through the unread pile that has amassed since Christmas, I was pleased to see I have finally made it into the prog --sort of! :D

That's me with the quiff, my bro with the chops and our family dog "Woody" as Rufus.

I missed this news last week and somehow it didn't show up on my facebook feed either. Very sad to hear this. Another board member who I felt I knew due to his ubiquitous presence.

My condolences to his friends and family.

I've only just realised what Gestapo Bob Harris' initials are...

There's a song about this guy

Can any Scandinavian members translate?

Just spotted this today. Gibson's cover predates The Rook by a few years.

Yeah… I googled this after I saw you post this on FB — that issue of The Rook was published in 1981, and the cover depicts one of the stories inside, rather than being a generic painting that might have been painted years earlier and bought in from an agency.



cool!

Cheers

Jim

Sad to hear Coldwar (of ABC Warriors fame) have called it a day.





This short doc was recorded recently
