  1. Get a real kick out of seeing my band listed alongside some big names.

  2. Oh band dramas, the [email protected] has really hit the fan with this one, honestly I sometimes wonder why we put ourselves through this

      Oh FGS. Git 2 sounds like either a primadonna or just a poor delicate little flower.

  3. The famous 'This England' speech from Shakespeare's Richard II is much beloved by demented flagwavers:

      "This precious stone set in the silver sea,
      Which serves it in the office of a wall,
      Or as a moat defensive to a house,
      Against the envy of less happier lands,
      This blessed plot, this earth, this realm, 
      This England
    ."

    How many of them know that the speech continues thus:

      "This dear dear land is now leased out
      Like to a tenement or pelting farm:
      England, bound in with the triumphant sea
      Is now bound in with shame,
      With inky blots and rotten parchment bonds:
      That England, that was wont to conquer others,
      Hath made a shameful conquest of itself
    ."

    Shakespeare knew.

      Tarring? Not at all. I didn't say they were all demented, did I..? There are flag wavers and there are demented flag wavers.

  5. Who is going to the UK Guitar And Bass Show this weekend?

      Nope. I'd spend all day and many £££ just to get there, and I'm not in a position to buy anything anyway. I'd be like a diabetic kid in a sweet shop. :(

  6. Just had some update pictures on my latest Overwater come through 😍 Not gonna share them yet though!

    1. Rich

      I think posting a new-bass related status update and then refusing to provide pictures for the rest of us to drool over could be construed as rule-breaking behaviour.

      Rule 6 plainly states:

      "You also explicitly agree that you shall not:
      ( a ) provide any content or conduct yourself in any way that may be construed as;
      unlawful, illegal, threatening, harmful, abusive, harassing, stalking, tortuous, defamatory, libellous, vulgar, obscene, offensive, objectionable, pornographic, designed to interfere...".

      There are no pictures. I object to this. Therefore, objectionable behaviour. *bangs gavel* guilty as charged. Cough up the pics or prepare for a ban.

      ;)

  7. Just lost a tiny bit of weight... ganglion removed from left middle digit. Had it years but it was becoming a real pain in the arse. Finger. Whatever.

  8. Is there something funy?

    1. Rich

      Rich

      There are many things that are funny, yes. I find personal comedic merriment in autocorrect fails, amusingly shaped vegetables and the stylings of Bill Bailey. YMM of course V.

  9. My stepson has just tested positive, 8 days before he was due to leave for his fortnight's holiday in the Maldives. They've been looking forward to it for literally years. Gutted is an understatement.

      He's got to get clear PCR test(s) before he can travel. I'm not sure how many and how long in advance.

  13. New culinary discovery... kabsah spice. Made a fabulous chicken dish last night using it.

    1. Rich

      Rich

      Sounds broadly similar to mine. The cloves, cardamom and nutmeg are incredibly aromatic. Mine has turmeric rather than saffron.

      You can get round that by calling them something else. My favourite term is 'clang stick'.

    1. Rich

      Yes, because we can expect mature and balanced scientific debate from an article that uses phrases like "cultural Marxist firewall". *rolls eyes*

  24. I've never got along with Musicman basses... So why do I suddenly have GAS for a 5 string 'ray? Odd... 

    1. Rich

      Rich

      I bought a cheapo OLP 4-string off the 'bay, it sounded fine but I didn't get on at all with the clubby neck... subsequently bought a gorgeous fretless Jaydee neck from Greenolive of this parish, and now it's fabulous.
