    ...well, for now, anyway.

    I arrived in Los Angeles 4 days ago to join the rest of my band. They relocated last year and were nice enough to wait a couple months for me to settle my affairs in San Francisco.

    Now that my life has changed in, oh, so many ways, I feel I should focus on the things that need to be done to get a life of sorts going on here in la-la land, most important of which is a job and a roof of my own. I am very determined and focused on getting these goals achieved asap, which means that I've decided to forgo any distractions and addictions, and unfortunately, that includes Talkbass.

    So this is goodbye for now. I know I've not always been on my best behavior, and for that I am sorry. I'm a nice guy, really. Thanks for all the support and suggestions, y'all.

    I'd also like to congratulate and welcome Josh Walsh on his new mod gig. Hope you like giving bikini waxes...

    Congratulations also to Embellisher for being the new mod in the classifieds and the lost and stolen gear forums. It was a pleasure co-modding with you and I hope you enjoy your new forums.

    For those in the Los Angeles area, please check my latest "friendly gigspam" thread. My band's first gig as L.A. residents is on the 10th, then we have another gig on the 30th.

    So there you have it. I'll poke my head in every now and then and annoy someone about their spelling for old times' sake...

    Well, this resume ain't gonna fax itself, so lemme get back to the nitty gritty.

    Ah, welcome to LA! Great place, not as hectic as San Fran IMO.

    Good luck, Blackbird. Since you're leaving would you mind breaking your autographs rule just this once?;)

  17. Oh, and kudos to Josh Walsh in his new position. :hyper:

    (a new mod, eh...:confused: )

    Josh, may I say that's a very nice tie you're wearing! :p :D

    Good luck, Josh.

    Will, good luck, and don't be a stranger! We'll miss you, and your grammatic assistance as well.

    Looks like we have two new El-Lay relocations this week, Sir Smug has landed in the granola city (full of flakes, nuts, and fruits! ;)) recently as well.

    Josh, make sure they give you the real moderator ring, not that plastic one they tried to foist on me when I first got mine. Oh, anyone got suggestions for the wax-job???
