Hey. It's Saturday night. I'm a DJ from Houston, TX USA and the scene is so gruesomely doggish here I can't keep a straight face. We're always dogging each other so please forgive me if I seem to be laughing my head off. I'm not doing it on purpose.

um. My name is Mackenzie McKenzie & I'm from all over the states, mostly the north east like New York and New England (Massachusettes). I'm floored that I got approval to read & post on this board. hey, I just got the Bob & Doug McKenzie album. They don't have snow blowers in Houston so the bookstore where I got it had no idea of this record's value smile

Man, Ultravox is the bomb. What I'd really like to find is an instrumental version of "Western Promise." I could then mix it with Rush's "Tom Sawyer" (the live version) & we could all appreciate the Gods together. and smoke a little.
whoops.

What's the big deal with Midge Ure? How come other band members haven't put out solo albums?

I'll sit back and read the board some so I can acclimate. I hope I don't cock attitude here after this post. This is difficult given where I live.

Chillin',
M
koo-loo-kookoo-koo-loo-kookoo...

*ahem* .. pardon .

So Ultravox is just a job to Midge? Is he just lipsincing on the records? I'll remember to mention him in blogs I may leave behind.

peace & rain,

Eh, not sure what you mean by geography. I'm from all around the United States because my father worked for a major airline. I'm disoriented about some places sometimes. I'm a mess in London. Good thing they have pubs there.

Pardon my excessive chatter.

Weird thing: at home I am logged off, but here at work I am logged on. The wonders of informatics... confused

And... YES... a classical case of thread high-jacking (again). Any objection from anyone?

Three statements ending in "Eh". . . A conspicuously Scottish name . . . Thought processes that seem to owe more than a little to copious - nay, life-altering - amounts of BC bud . . . You're not a Canuck, are you?
