    @missy

    For Christ’s sake. You’re playing about with this “pretend anger” thing & it’s not working. Alright? It aint. If people want to swear because they do, then that’s none of your business. As long as no-one has a “go” at an actual person. Also (Christ, I feel like I’m teaching grade school) he wasn’t talking to you. Not at all. So, having a…[Read more]

    Just for people to be aware whilst we take joy in retaining The Ashes, there’s raging bushfires even at the beginning of Spring.  The actual heat is ……-at the moment quite low, with minimums of 7-12.

    Not far from here, but far enough, people had 10 minutes to get out. No time beyond a grab-bag. The fire was running up hill at 10 metres per seco…[Read more]

    @blenkinsopthebrave the ladeez in stocking??  Didn’t do it for you?

    @whisht OH YEZ!  Just to be lecture-y we’d use terms like “locked” for what we’d call “the modern music” 🙂

    The Sinatra is flippin’ LOCKED! And LOADED! Seriously though, that’s one clever as shit producer. Could’ve been a really unrighteous bass sloppy and loud with the horns s…[Read more]

    Greetings from our Brisbane winter -alright, it’s spring, but just & yesterday was 31 & today 34! Madness.

    Yet the non-experts ignore the discussion about “what are we going to do about….global warming?” [singing this to Sound of Music’s “what are we ….about Maria?”]

    Hmm, yes, unless she’s looking for a personal doctor -a person all to herself 🙂

    Also, good to see both of you back!

    I’m old Puro with Thane16 who decided to change our name. Again 😉

    @arbutus

    Yeah, I reckon people think the scene with George’s wife is awful -from a post-modern and whatever-it’s called perspective. I thought it was hilarious. But now I’m not so sure 🙂 ….. I haven’t seen Desk Set but they’re a great couple of actors.

    REM forever 🙂  But maybe some James….

    @craig

    I’ve had several emails from  a number of sweet young ladies with many important and urgent things to discuss.

    As well as items for removal -should I wish it. Frankly, I’d be thrilled down to my bootstraps if they would remove  carpet from d’house and take it to waste disposal. Heck, they can have the old wet mattresses from d…[Read more]

    So Puro or Siggers posted Bowie which was SO good but I’m posting this: REM.  Mum did say (possibly being a little fried from watching too much telly)  “holy heck this sounds like Taylor.”  I dunno, but it’s the best recording of this used in anything I’ve seen though.

    Not the best, but enthusiastic (singers)  and a library. Although not many people were smiling. To me, singing is smiling!  One of the soloists needed some tuition from …..Russell Crowe. Lot of people don’t like Crowe’s rendition (of anything). I did, though, even with ADR.  I’m not a huge musical fan then again it was JCSuperstar whic…[Read more]

    @arbutus great to see you up and about on the Forum! I didn’t know you were in Alberta. Being as I have my secret ways I think I was in Alberta (for 2 weeks) when you were in school there.  But it was your last 2 yrs of school and I was 13-14 so….maybe not. But the Arbutus and puro line may have at least danced to the same music at the time, so…[Read more]

    @XAD4 and others who love the Osprey Project in Wales. They’re closing off sections at the end of the month as they’re building a new wildlife centre. Also, Peris was very hungry!

    Hey! Sorry, what’s an “Emily Post ?”

    Yeah, here, we do tag people because Syzygy might confuse people or they may not really want to read that again. Short story: mum and I share the tag. Mum’s sick a bit, so sometimes I type for myself, others I type for her. I’m doing that now. And when I DO type for mum, I always let people know…[Read more]

So, I have the computer (the only thing in the house that’s not my phone I can get internet on as the school computer locks you off the internet on certain hours of the weekend.

    I love Wah-wah. Possibly boring anecdote: I had this playing really loud to a group of very sick gentlemen in the States (fiddling around with music therapy) as well as the Beatles and Merseyside groups.

    Ah yes, so syzygy came from a show my son loves (and me too) called The OA. Except he had also learnt that, in astronomy, it’s an alignment of three bodies including a celestial body like the sun.

    Also, practically, my son and I are both holders of the same name -and in poetry, and music, particularly during Homeric times (the music,…[Read more]
