@Thor I'm very sorry if my earlier post upset you that was never my intention. I was just joking with you. Sorry. Text can really translate things incorrectly. Again I apologize.

No Perk,
I will only read and comment occasionally. The book will be the priority for at least 7 months...so that you can all get a quality and well designed Coffee Table Book. The process is long and complicated.


I was just joking before when I said for you and Lee to come back here. I had no clue that putting out a book would be so involved. I though writing it and finding a publisher was all. I apologize for being "bossy" I have a sarcastic sense of humor that really doesn't translate in text sometimes. I know you and Lee are stressed just maybe don't be a stranger drop in from time to time and if we need something urgent we can private message you?

I need to go and start reading the first thread at least people aren't still posting in it so it won't be seemingly endless and impossible to finish. I conquered this one though. I just hate to bother you with repeat questions. Good luck on the book and we are always here for anything you and Lee might need. If you come to Nashville on the book tour, I'll take you to a honky tonk? If you want. Doesn't seem like you would like that much but hey don't come to the country music capitol and not get the whole experience. Also, when signing comes Idk if you guys have had to fly through Atlanta airport it's enormous so if you have a layover make sure it's long may seem like you'll sit in the airport but you won't I have had ones 2 hours long and been running to the gate! I'm sure you might have considering you fly from Cali to NYC. Idk though...the airport stops are Dallas, Houston, Atlanta.
Nashville's airport isn't that bad it's getting worse we get 82 (average) people a day moving here. That adds up. Cost of living goes up too so Yay? Hope you can come through here. I found out that Queen was here on tour in 1979 but I was too busy not being born yet. I also cannot figure out where the heck they performed,I found some pics from that show online and I'm saw it was sold out but that's about it. We didn't have the same arenas and stuff we do now.
It's not JUST country we have great live music of all types even death metal if you want that which I sincerely hope not but for you and Lee I'd deal. :) I also know where the 1 gay club is I've been a couple times. It's fun. I love going on Halloween for the "fashion show." It's not as backwards here as it used to be. Also, Nashville is generous with the alcohol ;), Sourthern Hospitality and all that y'all.....

I hear you did an awesome job with the sound and subtitles? I haven't watched it yet. I work weekends and we can't get any kind of youtube here or social media for that matter. This is technically a "website" so I guess it's excluded.

Anyway, let me know if you need anything I am willing to help you with whatever. I type really fast which I'm sure you probably do too, and I can basically figure out how to do most things quickly so just let me know. If I can't do it I can usually find someone who can :)

I tried to write a negative (but tasteful) review about Lesley-Ann Jones' book on Amazon, it's too highly rated and a lot of magazines etc...are using it as truth and it's annoying! Amazon denied it saying it went against their policy, though they didn't list which one. I read the policies and I can't find what they are talking about. I think they are on the take I swear. I tried? I am holding off on the youtube video till I'm off on Monday and Tuesday. :) Thanks for all you do, you know I appreciate it!

last post from me was for @Villiers It said it was a "reply" on the invisible buttons. I guess not.

Thor I meant I know where 1 of the gay clubs here. Since more and more people are moving here we are getting much more diverse than before and we are right in the center of the Eastern US. I don't know what the draw is, but um.....okay...I guess. I have job security at least. Message and I'll tell you what my crazy job is.

Thank you Villers.

Do you have a possible future in radio or television journalism?

Last thing I forget things and they just pop in....

7 months from August puts the release date in March? Or is it 7 months from this month?

@THOR After the Live i'm so looking forward to reading the anecdotes in the book you and Lee are hilarious. We knew already from here but the live just reinforced that and with the two of you together it will be both hilarious and detailed. You both have GOOD memories! Not that Freddie is forgettable still.....both you and Lee I have to make multiple posts because I forget what I want to ask. :/

Hey Perk,
Please don't worry, we would love to come to Nashville. I was there only once before, but I liked it a lot. I got a kick out of seeing that replica of the (undamaged by time) Parthenon you guys have there.
By the way, I always take JetBlue non-stops from San Diego to New York. I love this airline. Nice modern and roomie Airbus jets with individual TVs on each seat back. And a self service snack and beverage station. Beats waiting for the flight attendant to finish their rounds before getting you a Coke.

Also Perk...I have always been able to "sniff-out" gay bars. I even found one on a 8 hour road trip (only about 1 hour apart, by car) from Abu Dhabi to Dubai in the U.A.E. I was just driving around the city, not knowing where I was even going and BOOM, there was a neighborhood where guys were hanging out and going into this bar (despite alcohol being forbidden for Muslims) I even met a nice and very cute Palestinian guy there. One day, I'll write a book...LOL

Perk, I got your message I dont mind answering it on here.My disease was basically classified as a one time occurance caused by a reaction to a flu shot.A person has fatty coverings over their nerves and what is happening in my body is my immune system is attacking this covering leaving my nerves exposed and damaged.It is now chronic because they didnt find it in time to stop the damage to my nerves from my waist down.I take a treatment called Ivig therapy which replaces the bad antibodies my immune system makes and replaces with good ones.So the answer to your question its progressive and they cant do anything about it the treatment I get is the only approved treatment.Thanks for asking

I don't know when the last time you were here was, but it's changed so much in the last 5 years that it's hard to recognize. Do you remember what you did last time you were here? Yeah that sounds awesome as far as flying. Dallas, Houston, and Atlanta are HELL! I try to get a stop over because my parents have me all worried about the blood clot thingies due to the non-room.....I have long legs but you do too you seem tall?
ROOMIE??? can you check bags and are the prices best or is it you'd pay a little more for comfort (I know on some I would) The most popular Airline in the Southeast is Ironically Southwest. You get to pick your own seat it's a first come first serve type situation. I like to sit towards the front because I'm fine until I'm standing in the aisle as everyone gets off and I get claustrophobic so I have figured out I need towards the front. Not "THE FRONT" just close. Is the flight smooth? I remember flying from San Fran to Nashville and omg the turbulence we hit around chicago......lord I am not a nervous flyer but that is an infamously bad area for turbulence.
