FBO: 'In Melbourne'

The Failed Bands of Oklahoma are in Melbourne, Australia, to gauge prospects of a performance in Victoria. Melbourne is an interesting city. Taxi drivers have no idea where they're going, for one thing. Today a cab went the opposite direction of my destination -- refusing to use the GPS system to find a location he clearly had no idea where it was; 'it's my second day,' he explained. Finally had to exit, flag down another taxi, get his map and direct him -- practically block by block -- to reach a fairly well known neighborhood.

Last time here, I saw a dead kangaroo on the road to the airport.

Are you sure this wasn't an evil plot to get a few extra sheckles out of you? Cabbies in Vegas do this all the time, though there are rarely dead 'roos in the road. Just the occasional koala.

It was no ploy. Just complete incompetence. Sure of it. Happens all the time there.
