Tour is for the Norwegian Drunk in September. Probably won't happen. Won't be going regardless.

i think he’s back to performing live, metallica released a few live videos a couple of days ago from a concert this year
Nah still hasn't played yet, they're always releasing old videos. I think the ones you're talking about have been from over the last few years.
Has been completely silent about it actually since he went in. Will be interesting to hear him talk about it, what triggered it all etc.

******* tragic. Loved his work in Death, and really loved the first cynic album.

Sad. Guessing either by his own hand or death by misadventure.

Missus is applying for her Italian dual citizenship (both of her parents were born there), turns out that I can eventually apply too as we've been defacto for nearly 10 years. Catch is those who aren't of Italian blood need to know the language to a B1 standard... how fast can someone learn a new language to be somewhat fluent in conversation even if they pay for a tutor? All I know how to do is swear haha. Serious question!!

Depends on languages you already know, how fast you learn individually, lots of factors really... I've been living in Switzerland for nearly a year now and still not anywhere near Fluent. Doesn't help they're speaking Swiss German here which can be very different to high German and is pretty useless outside of this particular region, it's quite funny, there's a lot of different dialects here, you can drive an hour or two in any direction and they'll probably be speaking differently and using different words and accents. I used Duolingo for 3 years doing Spanish and surprisingly found I can actually get by okay just from that (I work with a Spanish woman so I try to speak to her with it a bit). Maybe Spanish just comes a bit easier to me. No idea about Italian though.
Would highly recommend checking out Duolingo if you're just starting out and see how you go. I'm currently on a 1612 day streak... I actually find it pretty fun, it gets addictive.

I use Duolingo and Babbel for German. Haven't touched it in a few months though and it's mostly just to pick up the gist of things when I'm watching Bundesliga or watching/reading war stuff using source material. Because it's a solo thing I'm finding I can only really read German, but useless when it comes to speaking it. We thought it might be a great experience to maybe live and work in Italy for a year or two just for the experience and use it as a base to travel to other parts. I'm already drooling over all the festivals I might be able to get to.

My missus speaks Italian around her mum and nonna but it's an older dialect since before the country standardised more recently so she said she would take the classes with me and we'll try to speak it at home. Goal will be trying to carry a conversation with her 95 year old nonna who hardly speaks any English haha. Love her WW2 stories, so it will be good if I can understand them first hand without somebody translating.

Immerse yourself at home and do tutoring. Italian shouldn't be so hard if you apply yourself properly - the challenge will be putting yourself into the routine, making sure you study, not taking the easy path and using English, finding he time etc. Wish I had studied German or Italian rather than Japanese, probably be much more skilled by now. 笑笑。
