Where Shall We Toil? Where Shall We Be Foiled?

Now that post-production of the new TLASILA alb has begun, we're collectively scratchin' our lice-infested noggins regarding touring in '05. Many of the guys have other projects (uh, kinda obvious, that), and everyone's plate is permanently stacked to the rafters. I'm only free in the summer/early autumn, Mark's doing a Sightings trek in May, Rat's frightening the few remaining grandmothers who've not yet been exposed to Hijokaidan with a Squelchers safari in June, and Andrew has perhaps the craziest sked of all. God only knows if we'll ever see Thurston again; Don has a serious NYC day job, and Ben's usually up to his bleached platinum monobrow with film-biz biz in Los Angeles.

Australia/NZ is a promising option (our majordomo Chris is there, jetlagged and shoeless, even as I bleed), as is Scandinavia/Eastern Europe. We haven't hit Canada in nearly a decade (!), and Japan is in our crosshairs as well. The only domestic real estate we're likely to visit this year is in the West, or Southwest, or maybe a combo platter o' both...

Frankly, we're stumped. At least for the moment...
