Let's say he didn't pull that out of his memory -- would this mean you'll never drink flamin sambuka's and jager?

I'm just trying to figure out, for your benefit and mine, the causal link between Esau13's memory (and the recollection of Dead / musical events and their precise correllation to specific dates) and your predisposition to the consumption of mind/spririt-altering beverages.

Just part of the value-added service offering here at BradCorp.

It's certinally not the booze that helps my memory(as displayed in Montreal @ The Slip),just lots of reading,short reminders here and there and the need to know as much as possible about the dead that drives me.

The jagers and sambuca's don't help with anything(as displayed by my absence at work fri)

Getting cut off at the bar I work at is a new one for me,but it is the only time this will happen,not gonna get that smashed agian(maybe)

Thanks for your support
