that 's a wonderful idea the soil !
"post gig blues" could suit for every fans of the world I guess.
For me , that's clear, I felt this deep in my heart and it's so unpleasant.
Strangely, when I read that new dates could be done by PG, my heart felt lighter

I think "PG Post Tour Blues" would have to be an instrumental, as those who feel it are in too much pain to speak.

Had to have something tangible, visible as a memory.had my SMB tour poster matted and framed. Rarely put anything, I mean anything on my walls without months of forethought. A moment at the Hollywood Bowl as the music came up for "Heroes".that's all it took.
I am from Hungary and we had only two PG concerts here in Budapest. When the first was, I was only 12-13, so my parents didn't let me to go. And we had to wait 15-16 years to Peter's come. In 2004 Peter arrived and the concert was great, but one day after I was deeply sad. There was only one medicine, I started to organize how we can join to the tour. I did it like one possessed. To me there was not any other option, just one: to see, to hear Peter again! And we traveled to Locarno and this concert was much better, than the previous. But the fever is still alive! Since than I was in Locarno again, in Berlin, in Gelsenkirchen and I can't get tired of his concerts. But I also know the "PG post tour blues".

"Um.I think he's going to the one on the 13th of September."
I walked right into that one, didn't I? (Blush.)

As stated before, count yourself lucky if you've seen the show even once. I've been in Movie-Production-Myopia Mode for 5 months straight and had no idea that Peter was coming to the U.S., much less California, my home state.
*pounds head against wall*
The only way I can console myself at this point is hoping a New Blood Live concert DVD will be out soon.

"I walked right into that one, didn't I? (Blush)."
No, I'm just the king of smartasseses.(wondering now what the plural form is?).
rraven3 June 2010 at 7:09pmPosts: 3102 (0 today)Status: offline
Well, the plural of ass is asses, so it would be smartasses - but since I think you're in Canada, so the spelling would be smart arses. :-]

And because I too think I'm in Canada, I think the plural would be smartassi.

I'm not gonna argue that. :-]

I once made the mistake of feeding the wild ravens in my neighborhood. From then on, I would wake to the soft "tap, tap, tap," of their beaks on my window pane every morning.
And as I would walk from one room to another, the horde of raptors would watch & follow me from window to window until I reached the kitchen. Now I truly know how animals feel in a zoo.
When I stopped feeding them, they would walk in mud after a rain and leave their footprints all over my car.
Gotta love them, the little bastards.

Erm, now it's my turn to be an arsehole.
Raven aren't in the raptor bird family. They're in the corvid bird family.
But thanks for the story. Made me smile and I've been having a bad week.
ExcellentBird4 June 2010 at 6:10pmPosts: 188 (0 today)Status: offline
Oh, I know they're corvids but they can sure act like raptors. :-]
I've even seen one of them team up with a red-tailed hawk to go a-huntin' together.
Just when I thought I'd see a huge knock-down, feathers-flying, territorial fight, the raven & redtail just sat on the same branch regarding each other as nice as pie and then went sailing off together like they were a mated pair.
Will wonders ever cease.

Cool story! Thanks. There used to be ravens where I live outside of South Philly back in the 1970s but they're all gone now. They've all moved north.
