What's on your mind?
Martin: :o :o :o Oct 14, 2016 2:48:33 GMT
walkingdecay: She also said my late beard made me look like Catweazle though, so her judgment may be in question, especially as I was certain it made me look like Buffalo Bill. Oct 14, 2016 7:59:31 GMT
walkingdecay: Celtic Harp Anthology. Some good tunes with chord symbols, eminently adaptable to guitar or mando. 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
