What's on your mind?
walkingdecay: Celtic Harp Anthology. Some good tunes with chord symbols, eminently adaptable to guitar or mando. http://www.melbay.com/Products/30541EB/celtic-harp-anthology.aspx Oct 14, 2016 8:25:52 GMT
Martin: I wonder if beards are universally scorned and despised except by those who wear them? :-/ It feels that way. Nice heads-up on the book too ;) Oct 14, 2016 8:57:55 GMT
wailingmelonchitlin: I have been lucky enough to pick up a 'preloved' (2008) spruce and sycamore Steve Agnew 000 14 today from a guitar shop in Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire. I compared it to a couple of Martins in the store, and the SA shone like a diamond... Most excellent :) Oct 14, 2016 16:58:13 GMT
ocarolan: ...we need to hear a lot more about that - why not start up a new thread? - with pictures of course! Oh, and congrats! Oct 14, 2016 17:43:38 GMT
walkingdecay: I can only say that I never got biscuit crumbs on my shirt when I had a beard. They are things of utility as well as glamour. Oct 15, 2016 2:43:12 GMT
ocarolan: ...and with winter coming on, every bit of extra insulation comes in handy. Oct 15, 2016 3:06:06 GMT
walkingdecay: I believe I will begin another beard project, with a view to being a scary Santa in the short term and reintroducing the snood in the long. Oct 15, 2016 9:38:17 GMT
Martin: (rofl) Oct 15, 2016 11:13:20 GMT
walkingdecay: My mate wants to tout some of my songs around. When I told him to stop being daft he said he'd bet me 20% of earnings that he could place at least three of them. He can have the lot. 20% of nothing... Oct 18, 2016 9:22:09 GMT
Akquarius: can i bet on the bet? Oct 18, 2016 13:13:39 GMT
walkingdecay: All bets are off, Bernd. I'm not going to let him waste his time on my behalf. Oct 19, 2016 3:08:40 GMT
Martin: I say let him 'waste his time'. He must see the talent in them, like we do :) Oct 19, 2016 3:28:10 GMT
walkingdecay: Thanks Martin, but most are stories that make people uncomfortable, which can't be good, while others are depressing or simply crazy. I was tempted by his offer last night - but no, silly idea. Oct 19, 2016 5:25:43 GMT
leoroberts: Never did Leonard Cohen any harm, Walkindecay :) Oct 20, 2016 3:54:35 GMT
walkingdecay: Yeah, but he had talent, wrote concise songs, could actually sing them and was with the zeitgeist, Leo. Oct 20, 2016 4:15:05 GMT
walkingdecay: Red Dead 2 next October Martin! There is life after Mass Effect after all. Oct 20, 2016 4:16:32 GMT
Martin: yes indeed, just watching the trailer! :excited: Oct 20, 2016 14:54:45 GMT
walkingdecay: It can't possibly be as disappointing as Mafia 3 or No Man's Sky, so I'm quite optimistic about it. Oct 21, 2016 11:40:44 GMT
walkingdecay: Mafia 3 could have been great. The atmosphere is spot on, with news of the Chicago police riots on the radio and scattered Playboys genuinely readable "for the articles." Extensive interviews with The Beatles and Ralph Nader, for instance. What a waste. Oct 26, 2016 3:15:41 GMT
Martin: Sounds like it might be worth a play even if it is a letdown....surely there will be a pre-Cword sale of this one :sherlock: Oct 26, 2016 17:07:42 GMT
