  • Old V-drummer from down under

    Hi everyone,

    I'm an old v-drummer from arguably the most lethal and beautiful country in the world. It's been so long since I set foot in the door here that I thought I'd be best off re-introducing myself. Heck, I've got an awards ceremony to prepare within a couple of months and frankly I don't have the faintest idea who the hell any of you are!!

    ... and to an extent that suits me just fine because I have a strong suspicion that many of you come from the Northern Hemisphere and things just don't seem quite right up there. However, in my best effort to extend an olive branch to those whom I may have previously offended let me apologise unashamedly for giving you what you deserved. Clearly I should have relegated my fiesty curmudgeonly behaviour to the backburner in favour of a more diplomatic approach to pointing out the absurdity of living North of the equator (ie the ******* of the earth).

    Now however it seems I digress - the world moves a lot faster now than when I was here last. There's talk of fancy new expansion cards and modules whose very numbers seem to surpass my age. It is hard to keep up with it all, let alone have anything remotely helpful to add. So here I am, relegated to be a fart in the dishwasher of life and thinking that the race has indeed left me behind. So, I'll sit on the front porch of my house (that so many of you Northerns rightly fear to visit) and talk about 'the old days'... while yelling through my toothless mouth for those young whipper snappers to keep the noise down a bit

    And now with introductions behind us - allow me to point you all to UTFSE and to hope against hope that the souless fiends who used to frequent this place (GB, Boingo, Jman, Pim, ODG, Joe, SITM, MR, Can,... and the rest of you lazy buggers) are still tearing it up! I'm looking forward to the 5th (can you believe it??) awards (if I haven't been drawn and quartered by then)

    See you then
    Steve

    Welcome back cobba, always a pleasure to see a legend of the forum return... the prophecies are fast fulfilling- the great expansion is nigh!!
    "Today young men on acid realised that all matter is purely energy condensed to a slow vibration; That we are all of one consciousness experiencing itself subjectively; There's no such thing as death, life is only a dream and we're the imagination of ourselves.. Here's Tom with the weather"...

          I tried posting earlier, but couldn't log in anymore...

          Glad to see you're back Steveo! I was wondering where you were. Like you might know, I'm away from time to time for quite some time as well, and it's always a pleasure coming back! .

              Now if I just click my heels together three times and say 'there's no place like home, there's no place like home'...

              Thanks for the welcome amigo's - I'm glad to see there are few more aussies on deck now. There used be a time when a cooee would go unanswered!

              Ahh, how I have missed this place

                Hi Steve. Welcome back mate. Your right about the N.Hemisphere. Its all going to sh-t.

                I reckon all the blood sucking leaches up here, should be sent to the outback down there and forgotten about. Let um roast till their b-lls drop off.

                      Bonzer! Thought you must have come a guster or got stonkered and fallen down the dunny, it's been so long since we heard from you. Always a joy to read the irreverent posts that emanate from the bludger from the back of Bourke. The first bloke in history to play Waltzin' Matilda on a kit made of e-tinny's.... and no-one gave a XXXX.
                      Welcome back, mate. p.s. Watch out for the new Sheila's around here... some of them are built like a brick s house.

                        We're bred tough around these parts mate. Fortunately, I'm pretty placid and gentle as a general rule and don't get aggro very easily unless someone really gives me the ****s!!
