    Another big night out on the town. Finally met Hey Apathy and Iron Imp, ended up at The People's Eatery at 3am with Oldhat and Alan, dining on shredded pork and green tea.

    @lucien: Thanks for posting the author, I was buggered to remember the name. Good talking industrial music, authors and comics.

    It was great meeting you lot. Awesome people, all of you. Best night I've had in a long time. Sent Facebook adds to those I could find and followup emails, etc. Definitely down for more future meetups.

    @Hey Apathy: I sent along an email to facebook and what contact info I could find from your .com in regards to the videogame installation we spoke of. Very interested in contributing original foley / sound design or additional music - that sorta thing is right in my wheel house. Hope to speak with you about it further at your convenience.

    Cheers, all :)

    (p.s. I'm glad there was no brutal hazing ritual where I was dosed with PCP, covered in feline pheromones and dumped, naked, into a grotty arena with a rabid bull mastiff hound for the chance to prove my tenacity... some of the conversations you people have around here... never know what to expect... ) ;)

    You missed Hex this time around, sadly. Drink-ups aren't the same without him.

    Hex's usually the one supplying the arena pheremones, for one. Fantastic to meet you, Imp, and you too Apathy! You're absolutely right, Whitechapel is best experienced up close, in person, and after a few good beers.

    Just got into Penn Station, wishing I hadn't had to bug out so early. Thanks again, Grease, for the bed for the evening. You and your missus are first class.

    Always a pleasure, mate. Thanks for the 3am dinner at the People's Eatery.

    What a wonderful night that was. Imp & Apathy, I'm glad you had a great time despite not getting the true Whitechapel experience with Hex shouting at you. Was really wonderful to see you both. :)

    And Grease, echoing what Alan said. Thank you and your missus so much for the bed and hospitality. Really meant a lot.

    Shurely you meant "Hex NOT shouting at you." And I don't shout. I YELL. I yell because I CARE.

    Did anyone ask these new fellows where they stand on Stan Lee? Because I know he's eighty-something but I still say his throat. Or perhaps his typing fingers. (I'm nothing if not flexible. ) Next time, next time ...

    I'm almost disappointed the whole thing didn't go down in flames because of my lack of show but I'm not surprised. If anything, it went smoother without me and for that, I feel strangely nothing.

    April and May are fast approaching and plans start here, I suppose. Alanna's was quite nice, quite nice indeed and Grease and his lovely lady wife are excellent hosts. Will the new-comers be admitted? Can such a rag-tag group of combat-happy joes find love in a world they never made? Stay tuned, Fearless Ones.

    END COMMUNICATION! (See? THAT was shouting.)

    [File under: Taphead is terrible at planning]

    Hey gang! So, as it stands I'll be hopping an overnight bus from NYC to Toronto this weekend, most probably arriving in your fair city on Saturday afternoon. After that I have no idea about anything... Cheap fave eateries are always a joy, as is beeeer.

    Also, are there any reasonable hostels (or possibly a couch/mattress/kinda clean spot on the floor) around?

    I'm going to vote on C'est What for this one, folks. Taphead needs to have good Canadian beer. :P

    Go to Chinatown (Dundas & Spadina, running north up to Bloor) for totally decent cheap eats. King Noodles on the west side of Spadina, just up from Dundas, has ridiculously cheap (and very large) servings. Downtown on Yonge, Amato makes pretty good pizza and will deliver; don't go to Pizza PIzza because it is shite. A&W make good burgers - not as good as Hero Burgers but way cheaper.

    If you are partial to weed, it's easy to get and the authorities are tolerant of recreational use.

    I'm painting the spare bedroom this weekend unfortunately, so I won't have space for a house guest.

    Also, C'est What sounds good to me too.

    You can stay at my place. I'm working until around 10ish, at which point I will join you guys at the bar of your choice. Keep cellphones at the ready!
