Can’t wait to pick up a copy on Amazon.

A used copy.

I second the idea of buying it used. MJK is sitting on a huge pile of cash as it is.

So, why no Vancouver dates for the book tour? Huge fan-base there but no love eh? That sucks.

I was surprised no Vancouver either… much closer to Seattle than TO is to DC or Chicago. Either way I’m happy to be get a little holiday out of the Seattle date. Kim Thayil should be an interesting moderator.

Alex Grey or Billy Howerdel would be at the top of the list in my books.

When they open the floor to questions, I’d ask Billy when the next ‘Ashes Divide’ album is going to be released.
When he answers (in similar tool style) “Oh ummm, gee I don’t know”, I’d get up and leave.

Congrats to Junior on his 20th year anniversary as lighting director for the band. Amazing! Many thanks and much appreciation.
