I thought I’d share a little update on Thatfabulousalien: it appears he’s dropped out of university, gave up on his goal to become a composer, and has even left the city he was living in. Also, he has no interest in classical music any longer, which I hope is just a passing thing. It doesn’t look like he’ll be on GMG anytime soon. :-\ It’s so strange how a 'bad experience', which in this case for Alien was studying music, can somehow taint your view of a genre that was obviously a passion and played an important part of your life.

Very sorry to hear that.

The 'Prodigal Son' type return of Sarge is, however, cause for celebration.

A BIG AMEN for that!  0:)

I have twice tried to catalyze a response from Luke Ottevanger via his wife on FaceBook, but so far nothing!

Possibly I am not the person to attempt this*, possibly it will not matter because of sundry other reasons.

I was just about to post here to see what had happened to him, and I saw this. That's life I guess! I hope he makes it to Europe some time.

I still lament the disappearance of Chamber Ray and Peter (Moonfish). :-\

Bulldog is back! We have to play his game, or he might pack up and leave again!

He's back again! (PC meltdown was the cause of his absence)
