Just saw off a mugger

Heard distant female screams outside (4am still up from mixing and Gearslutz)

Opened door to see a struggle on the sidewalk a ways up the street. shouted in my loudest voice - HEY YOU I AM CALLING THE POLICE!, I see mugger get off the victim and start to escape (in my direction!) Shut door to look for weapon, (just moved in) FINALLY located a normal table fork and gingerly walked out. Mugger gone, shaken up (stunning) Japanese girl, just outside my place now. Made her run home (to her boyfriends) and told her I would watch her all the way up the street..

Never a dull moment round here..

Off to bed, really must get a baseball bat to go with that mit of mine...

Jules,

I had a very similar situation like that happen to me today, only replace the word "mugger" with "A&R rep".

In the case of trying to prevent local crime, I'm a big believer in tactical victory through superior firepower. I suppose it's a Texas thing.

We had a saying back in Texas. "Never bring a knife to a gunfight." That is, when wielding a baseball bat, be sure your opponent doesn't have something better, lest you feel silly at best, and injured or dead at worst.

Remember "Hitchhicker's Guide"? The Vogons had a simple policy. In any weapon, there should be a good end to be on and a bad end to be on, and no one should ever need to ask which end is which.


Regards,
Brian T


P.S. This post is at least somewhat tongue in cheek, though not completely.

WTG Jules! I had a similar instance a couple of years back. A couple of drunks fighting in the streets at 4 am and waking up the whole nieghbourhood... except I keep a 5 foot broadsword by my front door... it's a wonderful intimidation tool
