    Hey, all. Uncle Sam has seen fit to send me to a location in the Middle East in order to ruin my Christmas. Such is life...

    Anyway, in my job I get to go downtown and buy things for the base. I'm in a pretty relaxed country in the Middle East where they are appreciative of Westerners and our culture. While I was in the city the other day I came across the following Van Halen merchandise in a little music shop:
    - Van Halen mp3 CD - all albums in order, including L:RHRN. The artwork was like the VH logo from FUCK - red on a black background. Some cool errors like "Running Within Devil", "Panana" & "S1S0", a.k.a. "5150". There were more but I don't remember 'em.
    - Van Halen: Balance - authentic product from Holland.
    - Van Halen: I, II, 1984, OU812 - all bootleg; the cover of OU812 had a black penned-in moustache on Sammy, as if someone got bored and decided to practice their moustache skills. Hilarious!
    - A jersey (white with powder-blue sleeves) that said VAN HALLEN - I laughed my ass of with that one.
    I also got "The Two Towers" on DVD for $3. Since I won't get to see it until at least the end of March I gotta check it out somehow.

    Peace from the Middle East!

    Hey MetalMarc,
    I've only been as far as Mexico in my travels outside the USA but yes it is funny to see these strangely covered albums of unknown origin. I remember seeing one called "Van Halen 80's Volume 3" or something like that in Spanish. It was mainly the first album with Panama and Jump thrown in, but the cover was a live shot of the band with Sammy! Hey bro, take care over there, wishing you and your family a happy Christmas and New Years.

    yeah, I saw a tape for the far east that was Ozzy's "Speak of the Devil" but in whoever did the cover printed -Ezzy Ezbourne-Talk of The Devil!!!! I can see how, if it was a cover they were reading from, 'cause the Oz does his name with those lines through the O's and it could look like an E, especially if ya [img]graemlins/drunk.gif[/img]

    Yeah, have a GREAT Holiday week. It's looking like we're going to go in there with guns a blazing. Take extreme care of yourself, and smack the shit out of those beeeyotch towel heads.

    Good luck, God speed, & wish you the best.

    A family friend is going over there in January. It's got to suck, but that's what we gamble when we sign on the dotted line for our country.

    Who know's - I might be joining you over there in the near future. I haven't heard anything yet from the higher-ups [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]
