Certain people have expressed the desire to postpone the Hamster event until after Ardgour so I can join in; I'm overwhelmingly in favour of playing some stonking bass parts, but if a reduced set of people still want to play Hamster songs at Ardgour, that is just fine by me and you should probably tell me here.
However, the final rock opera will definitely be completed -- I've been scribbling down some great ideas for songs, so keep watching. I've got enthusiastic about this project and since I can't go on holiday, I might as well still have fun with rock.
In other news, I had no idea Bowie could write anything like this. I am all agog, and as I was telling someone just now, that's not an expression I'm given to using lightly.
