What did you think about the book "Gigantic"? I just finished it and I thought it was such an attack against you. Not to creep you out or anything but I love you. Thank you for existing. Or Rather, I should thank your parents, lol.

Along with a couple of other forum members, I had tickets to your solo shows here in Australia that were cancelled. Then there were rumours of a pixies tour down under, but so far no luck.

Any plans to head our way in the near future?

SORRY BOUT THAT. I CANCELLED BOTH TRIPS FOR THE SAME REASON...BABY ON THE WAY. SO I DON'T KNOW. I'M SORTA THINKING THE MORE THE MERRIER, SO WHO KNOWS? WE SHALL SEE...

Hi Frank! Isn't always the way that you have a million questions to ask, then when you get the chance you can't think of anything?! Ah well. Congratulations on the new baby and good luck with the house-move!

Hey Frank, can you tell us about Dead Man's Curve, what we're for now calling "The Rabbit Song", and "The Water"? They're not on Fastman Raiderman as far as we know, and, well, they're all pretty exciting sounding! Are these the demos you were working on? Are these tracks from an upcoming album with Schwarma or that other band that starts with a P? Solo stuff for work with EDF? Covers from songs received via Seti@Home?

Anyway, thanks for stopping in, it truly is appreciated more than you'll probably ever know, and I hope that you're getting some time at home before you go abroad with your guitar and 'wandering soles' once again.

Earlier in this thread, I said that I'd love to hear you cover "Book I Read" on Talking Heads '77. I've been spoiled since you answered two of my questions tonight, but I'm going to push this as far as I can and throw that request out there again.

That's it for me. Thanks again for the visit!

I hate to be the bearer (ha ha) of bad news (more ha ha), but I believe the Bear Land Jamboree is gone. But, there's always Chuckee Cheese for automoton fun.



YEAH. I HEARD THAT, TOO. CHUCK CHEESE HAS THAT? COOL. WE DON'T HAVE ONE OF THOSE ROUND HERE, THOUGH. I'LL HAVE TO WRITE TO THE PREZ...

Frank, I've asked this before but just as you left the last chat...

You talked back in the Show Me Your Tears era about recording something with an orchestra... is that still something you'd like to do, or have your tastes changed? Recording with Eric is kind of like recording with a one-man orchestra anyway, I suppose. I really can't wait to hear this, nor can I believe that we're getting a double album in a few months and you're already slaving away on the next one.

Meanwhilst, do you ever listen to movie soundtracks? Any favourites? Favourite composers? I love John Williams. He and you share the slot for greatest musical inspiration.

Hey, in "Velvety" you mention Weed and on "Selkie Bride" you mention Cresent City. These are places that I grew up. Did you ever stop at the Hi Lo restaurant?

Hi Frank,

As your touring to Australia as Pixies or solo is on hold for the moment, any chance Aus could maybe have an extra track for Fastman.Raiderman as a sweetener please... maybe I Don't Live Here Anymore? Thanks. Good luck with FMRM and your new EDF project.

(( I'm a Snake... cut in half 'cause I'm not the one you needed. ))
