I’m contemplating treating myself to a new tuner, something I haven’t done in about 30 years or so and guess what, technology has moved on.
So, any recommendations? I don’t play much these days so it doesn’t have to be anything fancy. It’s for a bass, if that makes a difference. What on earth are those things that attach to the headstock…how do they work? I think they spoil the look of the guitar. And what about apps? Why isn’t life simple?
Thanks in advance etc
Only been a couple of years since Silver Bullets but there is a new album out called Snowbound. Only on my second play but it’s sounding pretty fab. Alas, they are no longer on Flying Nun, the world’s favourite record label.
In a couple of weeks I’m due to have an operation on my knee that in all likelihood will lead to 6 weeks on crutches and off work . I have had the same op three years or so ago but that was in summer and I seem to recall there was some sort of major sports event on, possibly the Ashes, that helped fill my time.
So, bearing in mind that I’m going to struggle just to make a cup of tea and the weather will be unwelcoming, does the Afterword have any suggestions of anything that will occupy my time? I’m toying with the idea of having a good session on my bass guitar, providing I can sit comfortably with it, we have Netflix etc and I’ve just signed up to Spotify Premium.
Can you learn a language in six weeks these days for instance . I guess I’ll be doing a lot of reading too.
Any other thoughts?
Three bottles of Aldi’s Steinhaûser Lager and half a bottle of a French Sauvingnon Blanc (Bit of a snob, I much prefer New Zealand Sauvingnon) and a bowl of Singapore Noodles. Wife has the drabs and I can’t see the way forward.
He was some player. This goal against West Brom, THAT goal against Scotland. Could do with him now at Fortress Portman Road.
Been bugging me for years.
Before the song gets going properly there is one (at least) spoken word. To me it sounds like “Galtieri” but I’m not sure why they’d be writing about an Argentinian General.
Maybe I’ve just got cloth ears.
Too much pressure to grow up these days.
Without trying to sound like my dad…it is harder being a yoof innit?
I love pottering. I can potter all day. Stuff still gets done but in a slow relaxed way. The current weather helps with potterage…it’s an under appreciated art.
Anyone else like to potter?
Well, for the Championship and Leagues 1 and 2 etc.
My team Ipswich has a new young manager, a host of new lower league signings plus some returning from long term injuries.
We’re everyone’s favourites for relegation. I’m quite excited!
PS The test match against India is fantastic!
….a Les Dawson spesh.
…I played this.
Winter Hill by Doves. I love the slightly wonky vocals and bass.
It’ll be here soon.
Are we bothered? How will WE do? Do we care anymore? What’s going on with the Germans (“You wouldn’t bet against them, Gary.”) Will Brazillian’s Hip Priest manager repair the nightmares of the 7-1? Will Panama do an Iceland?
More importantly, has anyone seen a decent wall chart yet?
Last visited in 1989 but me and my best mate are having a long weekend there in July, arriving late on the Friday and leaving Monday.
Saturday evening is sorted as my mate has connections with OMD who just happen to be playing while we’re there.
I remember we went to Dachau all those years ago and would be keen to go again but would also be grateful for some lighter recommendations. We’re both pretty good at bimbling to be honest but we do like beer. And food.
Thanks in advance etc.
Caught the new Johnny Marr track on 6music just. Called Hi , Hello and it’s excellent . “Ooh,” I thought ” that sounds like Dancing Barefoot”..and went off to check out a review.
“Hi , hello” are also first two words on Frederick by Patti Smith…
My wife has just said, now get this, she wants ME to put HER cd collection on MY iPod.
And I’ve just heard that cricket was brought over here by Flemish Weavers.
No idea why I’ve gone for this particular genre other than I listened to a-ha earlier. So come on , your favourite Scandinavian music, food/drink, person, place.
Doesn’t he look well!?
The Stranglers …There’s always the sun.
Somehow this seems relevant. Their last album was a cracker by the way.
Thanks to the “Greatest female vocalist” thread, I now know Timi Yuro was in fact a female girl.
I’d been aware of the name over the years (of course) but had assumed (“Never assume, always check” was a bit of advice I received in my RAF days which I clearly haven’t followed) Timi was a lad.
It feels good to admit my failings…this is the place for all of you to come clean and tell us all that embarassing fact you’ve been keeping to yourself for fear of ridicule and heartache.
Mine goes to the one in Corbieres, Manchester. Apparently Corbs markets itself as a wine bar or cavern these days. Anyway, the jukebox. Plenty of decent Manc stuff as you’d expect, old and new plus a good selection of other stuff. Presume it’s still there, not been for a couple of years.
Honourable mention to the one in Cask on Liverpool Road.
So who is it going to be?
Favourites currently include Tony Mowbray who is doing pretty well at Blackburn. Can’t see him coming at the moment unless Blackburn don’t make it up.
Danny Cowley from Lincoln. Doubts about his style of play not being “the Ipswich way,” whatever that is these days.
Paul Cook from Wigan. Hmm, interesting. Does he play “the Ipswich way?”
Shefki Kuqi. Heart says yes, head nope.
Steve McClaren. Bit of negativity surrounding him these days.
Mark Warburton at Forest. I wouldn’t mind him. Did well at Brentford but maybe not so well since.
I just hope we don’t get one of the usual suspects. I’m glad Mark Hughes is currently employed! We need someone young, progressive and dynamic to fit in with the clubs ethos. I understand Harry Rednap is available.
“You opened up my heart.”
I know it’s all been done before but I like this.
