|It happened :-) ah, great to witness.|
Jim should have been in the hall of fame decades ago!
I haven't been around, but I was reminded to come here because... yesterday morning on the radio, they decided to play a really long song because it was the solstice - longest day of the year. So they played Bat Out Of Hell. But they lopped off the intro so I was thinking "why the build up if you're going to play the short version?", but they did play the last half of the song so it worked out better than I thought it would.
Then later that day I was playing an online game called the Kingdom Of Loathing, which is a very funny game - they have an event on at the moment where you fight fire in the shape of bats, so there's a BooH reference in there too. :-)
So that's how I got here today. And what a treat! :-)
Meat, bless him. When he got all emotional it almost felt like a speech at a funeral rather than an award ceremony. But, if he didn't naturally overplay things, where would we be, eh?
Jim may well be much healthier than of recent times, but this is the first time I've seen him in a while, so it's like... he looks like he's travelled he path of "live fast and get really old really quickly". But if you end up there diverted from the route of "die young", that's still good.
Maybe it's the clothing. Instead of wearing really awesome sunglasses, he's wearing a really awesome mini conservatory on his nose. Conservatories are a very middle age kind of thing...
So yeah. Cool :-)
