    Last night I saw for the first time clips from several tracks from a DP show in Australia,14th of december, 1984, awesome stuff.
    Someone already put it on YouTube in november 2008

    Although I ve seen 1984 stuff before this is different, I think.

    Ofcourse the real connaisseurs among us have seen or collected this footage for ages?

    I only saw it last night but wondered why cause it has been there at least since november.

    I dont recall it got mentioned here

    Yes, she does look good, it really is too darn bad that looks aren’t everything, otherwise she’d be a pop star, lol.

    I like the work effort Mike Garret puts in, someone’s got to do it, and lord knows it’s got to be a tricky task to last very long around them, so he is doing something right I guess.
    It’s actually surprising to see such a private moment so publicized.

    @ 7

    This is true, much needed in the case of those who are tired of BN.
    (or did I miss your point?)

    It’s becoming clear to me that you use both a dictionary and web translator here, correct?

    Roberto says:

    not correct, I did it only sometimes, generally what you read is my improvisation…
    but you miss my point…

    I dont know what makes you think I use those.
    I just make things up at the spot.

    BN indeed gets really boring even though there are always spiced up things which try to wake me from my sleep

    This time it was because you took liberty to define a word I used, “yawn” and it just seemed to me that you must have looked it up, but I was wrong, sorry.(I wouldn’t tend to define random English words being used here because I already know what they mean, to give an example why I concluded that)

    I asked though, because if you do use them, I would take much better care in my communication with you, that’s all.

    A yawn may not be polite, but at least it is an honest opinion
