Neat :D
But the pair certainly monitor these discussions and while they don't take part in them, they do seem somewhat confounded by the kind of rumours that have got out.

Love this story. When the internet isn't too busy being evil, its helping cool things like this to happen.

I bet they are chuffed to bits to find out he is actually a big fan of their music :D

It was definitley a surreal moment, talking BOC with an 81 year old. I gathered that he didn't hear of them until the Dayvan video, but after that, he dove into (no pun intended) the catalog. When I asked what albums he owns, he said something to the affect that he owns "the one on which the song for the video appears, and the one with the bright orange cover as well (Geogaddi, natch)".

I was happy just hearing that he had seen the video, the music chat was a nice bonus.

I can be on occasions quite the sneering cynic (which I do try my best to keep in check). This is one of the best things really, I think it's a great thing you did. Bravo to you.

For those who sent a PM asking if the book reached the boys - it has indeed made its way into their hands. Which is great, because I've had some issues with customs as of late.

Well, this is some good news for the Friday before a long weekend (yay, Canada!).

What a great gesture Hex, bravo!
There are a lot of different 'me's, you know. There's the mad me, when I get angry.
