We had a lot of laughs between NY and Boston. One which sits nicely along side TAAB2 is the subject of aging, as some folks were running on little sleep and had trouble staying awake.
The Boston crowd was much more subdued than the NY crowd which is not very surprising, but 2 or 3 songs into the TAAB2 set, I noticed some women around me with their eyes shut, while their husbands remained focused on the new songs. I commented to Jeff about it as it became obvious that these wives or girl-friends were only there in support of their partners.
But further into TAAB2 now and I'm noticing more and more people sleeping! But now it's not just the the women, but some of the men had their eyes closed too! I was truly amazed. So I turned to Jeff to point this out and low and behold Jeff had nodded off too!
Thanks, I started working on it almost as soon as I got back home...to help me cope.
There was the woman in front of us, I think it's Deborah? She was definitely rocking out and knew all of the TAAB2 lyrics.
So I completed a DIY Tull project, my t-shirt! I took it in on the sides and cut the middle down the sleeves and cut off the neck. It was obvious I took way off too much and it wanted to fall off all night. If I do it again I know not to take off so much, so it was kind of a hackjob but Quizz thought it was fabulous. haha.
We're like family here! Speaking of...So..Some of the guys say they're my big brother now. Except for TM who is my uncle or husband depending if Giddings or Ryan is around. Tim is my dad, Quizz says I am his US cousin...and I told Ryan that when he reminds me of my son, I want to pink his cheeks and say, "You're so cute!" He said, "Well now you sound just like my mum!" ha
Here's something I have been working on, just a compilation of our experience.
I don't claim to be a camera woman...and thanks to others for letting me use your photos as mine weren't the best.
Or when I'm with Dennis and my eyes and nose are red and there are probably snot bubbles.
And yes, Quizz is reading St. Cleve
Damn, Darin....I had to look twice...I thought it was Ian..... ....I think you are right about hair and memory...Hell, I can't remember either.....
Biggles: Sooo jealous! enjoy.

teddy: Seems like everyone trying to figure out " Eat Hermione for lunch" just don't get it. A Popular vegetarian line of food is advertised by a woman named Hermione. You can see the advertisement on line. Thus it is not oral sex with a office girl. Munch.

lclark354: Hello everyone. I recently finished a room addition, and can finally set up surround sound. I've purchased all the Tull sets, except, of course,TAAB. Is there a site where one can purchase & download the 5.1 files? Or, any word on a re-issue?

madjack1959: Hello to everyone from Lexington, Kentucky. Part of what led me here, was mention of Gentle Giant. I've listened to Tull for ages, and then was introduced to GG via Octopus I saw in the record store, and that was my start. I've never seen either "live" :

yellowcab643: I made my way to Hollywood and thought it was very refreshing. The Kaiser Permanente Optometrist there cured my High Blood Pressure. Do I like an unsung westerner - I drove an England truck and had a Texas CDL Styx & Van Halen might have music about me
