and yet again, consumerism has claimed another victim!

I wish you and your chocolate friends all the best and get well soon!


Well guys, I’ve had a boo boo. :( Christmas shopping is very dangerous as many of you may already know. I was out buying stuff and I got my shopping bag handles tangled up. In a fit of impatience I yanked at them and one of them fell to the ground. Within moments my worst fears were confirmed: one of the beer bottles had broken. It was a craft brewed beer from Speyside where I grew up, although that’s not strictly relevant. Anyway, in my grumpy state I carelessly reached into the bag to get the bottle out. Immediately there was a burst of pain in my thumb. The blood started flowing. It got over all my high quality food items and my hand looked a gory mess by the time I got back to my flat. I cleaned up and what remained was a nasty gash on my thumb at least 1 cm long. Showing you the injury would be too disturbing, but I can show you the battle damaged container of some overpriced chocolates I bought.


Anyway this is a cautionary tale – please take care everyone. I probably won’t be able to play guitar for 1 or 2 days which really isn’t a problem at all… but what if I had a gig to play? What if I even played gigs at all? So everyone remember a boo boo is never far away. These kinds of tragedies make it all the more important to give what you can to Boo Boo Aid. Thank you my friends, and please stay safe out there. :)

just a little status update:

+ scab has mostly disappeared and the bleeding stopped on thursday

+ it still hurts when you apply slight pressure. I have to be careful tying my shoes, using scissors or while doing the dishes

+ it started to itch today, which is generally “a good sign”

+ at some occasions, I play with it a little and pretend it’s a mouth that I can move by pulling on my skin

thomann responded with the following, very unexciting reply:

Dear Robert, thanks for your mail and the information.

We are sorry to hear about this incident. We hope that this situation will not reoccur on a future order you might place with us.

Many thanks for your understanding.

Kind regards

What a baby! Dont worry son, mummy will arrive soon with a botty of milky wilky for you.

I have a feeling that you are not taking this matter seriously enough.

let’s be honest here, nobody should face the thread of getting your hands sliced open when opening a package. end of it.

I am sure this letter I wrote sounded a bit sarcastic but how can you get their attention otherwise?

I think Envato should give you a special badge for overcoming adversity…...I wonder what it could be?

It can be based on this popular character called Boo Boo.

In fact this could roll out to an entire charity for victims of Boo Boos, with our friendly Boo Boo as the mascot. Oh man I think we’re on to something here!

this is an ingenious idea. how many musicians have to face temporary inability to work while unboxing new music gear or burning your hand at the coffee mug or scratching their SO’s backs? I think the inofficial stats must be overwhelming

I found a great therapy and massage provider for while you are recovering from your injury:

as long as they don’t use any spiky things during their massage – bring it on!!
