Last night, we had a meeting re: an upcoming story.

Betwixt the foot rubs from the barely clothed supermodels that HP employs (both male and female because attractive is attractive, yo) and taking dips in the massive in-office swimming pool (which, personally, I don't enjoy; it's filled with that European bottled water, and that part is cool, but the little flakes of diamonds that float around in there always get stuck in the mesh of my HP-provided solid gold swim trucks), a conversation sidebar occurred.

Hopefully, HOPEFULLY, this means new music is on the way; if nothing else, it'd be neat to see him pop up at a concert or two.

Knock, knock. Who's there? Fuck you!

Thank you for your continued support. Have a safe weekend. Please do not get your hands all bloody from punching on the concrete.
