    Did you not get the memo? We're invading Australia. We'll have to confiscate those basses as well.

    Actually no, and I'm guessing that's a comment that was in the movie, but funny you should mention it because my wife and I went out to go see it and another movie, and ended up not being able to see any movie at all because the movie lengths conflicted with how long my sister could babysit our daughter.

    Then we went to pick up our daughter and a massive tree fell on my sister's power lines and killed the power on the street.

    Then the US invaded Australia and took Steve Irwan prisioner. Australia offered no ransom to have him returned.

    Then Mark Latimour posted this thread.

    Then in penance for being a lawyer he sent me his beautiful six-string.

    The six is by a Melbourne (Australia) luthier named Neil Kennedy.

    Its always a bit of a shock when you open up the blinds in the morning and see an aircraft carrier staring at you. It wasn't there when I went to be last night so it must have come in pretty early.

    Definately dig the family shot. Especially the MTD & the Kennedy. The Kennedy looks killer-nice body shape, wood choices, everything-if it plays as well as it looks, you got a major keeper.

    That's all

    Those sneaky koalas! I think a Marcus Miller would be suitable compensation, though...
