Eh. I'm a scary Powderworker. I want that on my tombstone. "I freaked out 
Rob Hirst." Sice he never reads it, there's no way of telling if he gets 
whether or not people are serious about discussing the Fashions of Midnight 
Oil. Personally, I see it as a fun way to take the piss out of the 
UltraMegaUberSerious fans who have Completely No Sense of Humor At All 
Period About Midnight Oil.

Other fan groups of other bands are even more intense. If Rob wants scary, I
can introduce him to plenty of obsessed Nine Inch Nails fans and their
little black books of Tragic Goth Poetry. Only Trent Reznor feels their
pain. :) (I went through said Bad Poetry phase 8 years ago. I now only write 
bad prose. It's a rite of passage, I swear.)
