Young Acoustic Guitar Musicians Competition 2015/16



What's on your mind?
walkingdecay: Gene spliced man/dogs aren't very bright which is why you don't see more of them. Feb 9, 2019 1:24:55 GMT
robmc: Ah. Thank you, I can move on now, I always felt a little suspicious of Goofy. Pluto on the other hand is undoubtedly all dog. Feb 9, 2019 10:39:14 GMT
ocarolan: W.t.f. has happened to Youtube? B-| Doesn't display right on Firefox and can only watch vids with rubbish Real Player -not worth the effort! Just fine on IE. Feb 9, 2019 12:52:50 GMT *
walkingdecay: And another thing. How come the people of Villeneuve didn't notice Beast's enormous châteaux and estate just down the road from them? Feb 10, 2019 2:40:56 GMT *
ocarolan: Dunno 'bout that Pete, but have solved my Youtube display prob - somehow it had switched into Mobile view rather than Desktop. Norman Jervis has been exhumed. Feb 10, 2019 14:18:48 GMT
walkingdecay: Excellent. Though oddly enough I thought I'd put up a shout suggesting you rescale or reinstall Firefox and now I can't see it. Must have failed to hit enter. Actually this whole weekend's been like that. Feb 11, 2019 7:36:53 GMT
martinrowe: I thought I saw that post Pete! Feb 11, 2019 7:51:58 GMT
walkingdecay: Thanks Martin. I'm not that mad then. Feb 11, 2019 16:43:30 GMT
walkingdecay: I see Trump's calling for more investment in artificial intelligence. This from a man who could be outsmarted by an abacus. Feb 12, 2019 0:57:07 GMT
raggy: I use Newtones on my Brook Feb 12, 2019 20:51:50 GMT
walkingdecay: As someone who's mainly a flatpicker, I find Newtones a bit lacking in tension and bite. If we'd strung our bows with Newtones at Agincourt we would have lost. Feb 13, 2019 11:17:41 GMT
scorpiodog: Yeah, the acoustic properties of a 120lb warbow would never have cut through against the French Hurdy Gurdy. God For Harry, Elixir and St George! Feb 13, 2019 11:24:12 GMT
walkingdecay: Stirring words, old chum. Yes, we should remember that the Hurdy Gurdy was a formidable weapon in itself. Had Napoleon's batteries of upscaled instruments been ready for deployment at Waterloo, we British would now be stubbornly refusing to speak French. Feb 13, 2019 12:45:00 GMT
scorpiodog: But would they have been enough to counter the late afternoon serenade by Blucher's Flugelhorn battery? Not to mention the blockade by the Royal Navy's fleet of concertinas. I think we would have been safe by 1815. Feb 13, 2019 17:08:05 GMT
scorpiodog: We would have done OK in the Hundred Years War but for that flighty Jeanne D'Arc's choir of celestial angels. Burning's too good for her! Feb 13, 2019 17:09:25 GMT
martinrowe: Aaah, the sound of that good old Bulldog spirit (just to change the direction a little bit) Feb 13, 2019 18:12:37 GMT
curmudgeon: Today, I am mostly eating ...taramasalata! Feb 16, 2019 9:30:05 GMT
walkingdecay: So impressed by the students of my acquaintance who took part in the climate change strike yesterday. Informed, articulate, passionate. Fair brought a tear to my eye, they did. Feb 16, 2019 10:53:46 GMT
robmc: I watched some of the students on channel four news, one girl in particular was a superb orator, so poised - unbelievable. Anyway, I'm pretty sure the Beast supplies the water to Villeneuve which is why they're all a little 'dopey' and unobservant... Feb 17, 2019 20:43:41 GMT
walkingdecay: There was an official answer on the Beast and the village from a Disney board I used to troll with these questions (village disappears then reappears when the spell is due to be broken) but I find yours far more plausible. Feb 18, 2019 8:46:08 GMT
