A mate just emailed me and said that his mate who works with a guy who is a booking agent at RL said SP april 2008. I emailed my mate who works in tennis and am waiting for what he says.
I know I had a bit of a fit when I read it.

Well it's not enough to just WANT one. You have to ask yourselves what you have done to earn one.

Cmmmmon announce a Sydney show for late march, I'm in Japan from start of April next year till Feb the year after. I'll be very peeved if I miss them by like a week.
I could always try and see them in Japan but the logistics of purchasing a ticket and getting to the show over there are a lot harder.
If the V-fest rumours are true (which they hopefully are) it might be late March. Fingers crossed.

Four men are sitting in a very small submarine tracking enemy movement.
The Captain (sitting in the front) spots and enemy submarine and sends a message "Fire Torpedo One", back to his first mate who sends it back to the second mate who sends it back to the third (and final) mate.
The third mate asks "what button do i push" and captain angrily yells the red one.
The Captain then sends another message...Fire Torpedo Two...and the message is relayed back to the third mate who replies again...what button do i push?
The Captain is furious with his ignorance and threatens that if he messes up anymore he will shoot himself from all the stress!
The third mate blows the job once again and the captain shoots himself.
The first and second mates realize they dont know how to operate the submarine and panic and shoot themselves.
The third mate stares in awe grabs his gun looks at it and says

WHAT BUTTON DO I PUSH!?!?!
