Nice one again, Chris. But don't let your friends at Warwick see you getting too comfortable with H√∂fners.  ;)

You've not seen his Instagram feed!

That is cool! Is that a Gibson pickup, and where did the ring come from? Too many questions.... It looks like a very thin trim ring?

I still say he was never serious about securing that trademark. I wasn't surprised to see that reported at Forbes today. But the name of Gene Simmons and his number one trademark have been all over the news and social media over the last ten days, haven't they? I just wonder if he's got another announcement coming soon (and wanted to prepare the masses for that) or if he just felt lonely over in Europe and wanted to remind everyone he's still around.

Didn't he used to say "As long as they print a picture"?

Gene was never in the running for that gesture. The University of Texas (known to Aggies as t.u.) has been using it since long before Gene was born.

...and while many people with a Jewish background come from New York City, not all Jews are New Yorkers. The sheer number of Jews settling in the region have made an appreciable impact on the local culture to such an extent that many people's expectations of Jews outside of the city is for them to be all like Woody Allen. I can personally confirm that is not the case being a New Hampshire Jew myself. I may be slightly neurotic in some ways but nothing coming close to Woody and I also enjoy some country music and a hike in the woods occasionally.

???I can unequivocally state that that isn't true, and watching Seinfeld(of all shows) is a bad example.

"a little Jewish" - (what does that mean exactly). I am sure the Brooklyn Italians would have an opinion on this....

Television is not a good window into reality. When I would go to Washington State on business and meet locals, there were a surprising number of people that were amazed I managed to reach adulthood without getting killed, or at the very least, shot. I'm sure I can thank Law & Order for that....

And when you say New York, be specific. There's a lot more to New York than New York City.

Yes sir, you are correct. I was speaking tongue in cheek with my comments. The five Burroughs are full of all kinds of diverse wonderful people.
