  1. Anybody else using these? I've had them for about 4 years now, and the only complaint I have is that it's really difficult to put the filters back in after cleaning them out properly. Does anybody have a tip or is it just going to take hours and hours of fiddling with the squishy bit and the filter until they both go in the hole? Any tips very much appreciated.
  2. It's still got gags Dave, but the different Author name is to make sure the horror element is obvious, and not to accidentally pick up the rom-com audience I've already got. I can't help making jokes - whether they're meant to be there or not.
  3. I know I don't post here as often as I used to - mostly because it turns out this writing lark takes up most of your free time On the other hand, I appreciate the support I get from this community on the rare occasions I get to play some music. That said, I'm plugging stuff again, I've got a new book out today, bit different from the last, so under the name D.A. Holwill It's a Folk Horror, called Wicker Dogs set in my home county of Devon and it's only 99p this week if you're bored and fancy a read mybook.to/wickerdogs Thanks all, and sorry for the shameless self-promotion
  4. This post cannot be displayed because it is in a forum which requires at least 1 post to view.
  5. I am not always very subtle in my obvious references
  6. If you've been umming and aahing about getting the sequel, The Ballad Of Fat Labrador is available for free on an Easter Lockdown special until Thursday You've got nothing better to do, why not have a read? mybook.to/fatlabrador
  7. Hi all, I've been keeping myself amused in the current apocalypse by recording the pop covers I've been doing down the local open mic nights since I've been without a band. Thought you lot might enjoy a giggle, so here's a Miley Cyrus cover (there's also Britney and Taylor Swift on the Youtube channel if you fancy any more)
  8. Thanks mep, weather's looking up for your holiday now as well.
  9. Thanks Nick. There's a small possibility of dragging another book out of them at some point. I don't think I've dredged up enough of the misery of playing the summer festival circuit yet, there's a mine of jokes there.
  10. Lots of people like musical theatre, people pay lots of money to see musical theatre, music without the theatre is pretty much just listening to records, in fairness
  11. Fair enough, that actually was my intention. Life's too short to pander to dickheads every weekend when you've got better things to do.
  12. I am sorry, that was never my intention. You could have made a few quid. I hear good things about those Nate Mendels Never call my bluff, or you will see a man running away screaming like a small girl. Back in the day most bands started out doing covers with a few originals thrown in, that way you get the following easier, so by the time you're doing all originals you're not playing to empty rooms. See the Rolling Stones, the Beatles and Led Zeppelin if you don't believe me. The terribly earnest approach to only playing original music that began to pervade in the 90s made for a lot of very boring gigs with no songs you could sing along to. I'm currently spending my time at open mic nights playing singalong pop music on an acoustic guitar - Madonna, Gaga, Britney, Miley Cyrus, Taylor Swift, Backstreet Boys, and I've never had such a good reaction to anything I've ever done. Then I chuck a song I wrote in the middle and it seems to go down better. Seems obvious.
  13. Since I've written 2 books in which you could be forgiven for thinking I just contantly ridiculy cover bands I felt it was time to write something about my actual ever-abiding love for them It's here and contains plenty of video evidence of me playing in various covery situations TLDR: Cover bands are amazing and neccessary and I will fight anyone who says otherwise https://davedoesntwriteanythingever.blogspot.com/2020/02/the-mysterious-allure-of-cover-band.html
