I'm sorry :'(

It is actually an excellent looking cable, and I have no issue either with Zardoz, or the cable itself, simply the inelegant wording of the description.

Jealousy can bring out the worst in people. I've just had to learn to live with it.

Thanks for your support, Mimi x

It's a little late in the day for an 'apology'. And now your lies over the matter are just making things worse.

...you almost made me Cavey.

I have bought a DVD copy of the 1993 production of "Much Ado About Nothing", directed and starring Kenneth Branagh. It's the first time I've bought a DVD new for *years*, and only because it is literally not on any digital platform anywhere.

Is this the one with Keanununu in it?
If so, marvel at his being ‘ever so slightly’ out of his depth

Yesterday I bought a thick rubber band to replace the broken one in a vacuum cleaner.

Today I can't find the rubber band.

I haven't even opened it... Pah.

If we're doing new guitar posts, I have:

#11:
Attachment:
#11


I got this for free, in a tight state. Hours of polishing and new electronics, and it's a rather nice guitar.

And #12

Attachment:
#12


While sourcing new pickups for #11, I spotted this and had to buy it. Its so very nice.

I did mean to start up a general musician thread to post a time line of the fixes to #11, but never got around to it.

The parts I did buy for it cost... quite a bit.

(Custom made pickups aren't the cheapest)

Here’s my setup currently. Any more pedals and I’ll have to start thinking about a pedal board.

No I still haven’t set the drum kit up.

I can do 3 buttons on guitar hero comfortably. Just about got the fourth one down too. 5 can fuck right off.

I just got a baritone guitar for that range (6 strings in BEADF#B). Unsurprisingly, this is about as easy as a standard 6 string.

Although I dare say there are significant stylistic differences. It's not really a guitar you'd choose for metal sounds.

Yes I'm not sure a baritone guitar and a seven string will sound too similar. I'm downtuned to A in any case (straight D with a low A). My six string is in double drop C (straight D with top and bottom D strings dropped to C).

Note that a serving is 25g, but they sell them in a 50g packet. Sneaky fucks.

To me, a serving is what is in the packet.

16 rashers of bacon? 1 serving.
1 Jamaican Ginger Cake? 1 serving.
1 tube of Pringles? 1 serving.

I only apply that rule to packets of Jaffa cakes, as they go stale faster than you can eat them, anyway.
