Aemulor et ambitiosior

". . . the one thing a machine just can't do is give you character and personalities and sometimes that comes with flaws, but it always comes with humanity" Monty Don "Mastercrafts", BBC March 2010


What's on your mind?
ocarolan: FLEET FOXES live from Sydney Opera House - NOW - May 29, 2017 10:12:46 GMT
ocarolan: Fleet Foxes finished now - almost 2hours continuous. Nice. May 29, 2017 12:05:33 GMT
Martin: Did they still have your old guitar? :sherlock: May 30, 2017 8:47:35 GMT
ocarolan: Sadly, Robin sold "my" Oberon after using for some time at home and to use for writing etc. When Fleet Foxes went out of sight he went back to Uni for a while - sold off a lot of gear via a Seattle music shop - I spotted an ad they had for the guitar - May 30, 2017 17:45:41 GMT
ocarolan: -and let them know more about it, for which they were thankful. No idea where it is now! May 30, 2017 17:46:11 GMT
Martin: It would be cool to be able to trace it - I wonder if it's ended up somewhere else famous.... :-/ Jun 1, 2017 8:24:27 GMT
Martin: Only 16 weeks now until Halifax - it comes around more quickly the older I get :( Jun 1, 2017 8:25:08 GMT *
ocarolan: ...once you're over the hill, you're bound to go faster, it's downhill all the way... :old: Jun 1, 2017 21:57:38 GMT
Martin: It seems so....just wish I had brakes sometimes :( Jun 2, 2017 15:15:15 GMT
ocarolan: Am I going to be able to watch the QT special tonight with Jezza and Tezza without bursting a blood vessel? Perhaps I should do some guitar noodling whilst it's on to keep me calm(er)..... Jun 2, 2017 19:25:55 GMT
Akquarius: RIP Heiner Dreizehnter. only 57 years old. I guess I'll play my Akquarius a lot this weekend Jun 3, 2017 16:34:07 GMT
Martin: So young too....very sad :( Jun 4, 2017 20:05:48 GMT
walkingdecay: I did my last gig last Friday. Got sick of being booked to play keyboards only. Jun 6, 2017 13:51:53 GMT *
ocarolan: least you did get booked though, Pete! ;) Jun 6, 2017 21:49:22 GMT
walkingdecay: True, but on some gigs I felt as much programmer as musician, and wishing physical harm would befall the guitarist so I could take over was probably not a healthy state of mind. (I didn't really. Well, not entirely seriously.) Jun 7, 2017 9:31:48 GMT *
ocarolan: Hm, yes. Understand! Just think of the free evenings you'll have! :) Jun 7, 2017 11:52:58 GMT
walkingdecay: The Arena:American Epic series is worth catching on iPlayer at the moment. Nice mini-portraits of the likes of The Carter Family and Mississippi John Hurt, though the "origins of steel guitar" story should be taken with a pinch of salt the size of Hawaii. Jun 7, 2017 14:19:41 GMT

walkingdecay: Hope gone. Jun 9, 2017 6:10:04 GMT *
