  1. What are you watching on Youtube?

    This isn't youtube but still super interesting :-) RC
  2. What are you listening to?

    Nice. I have an original Les Paul, a sunburst, did have a mod to add a wawa bar back in the early 70s. My 18th birthday present, back when I used to live & breathe that stuff. :-) RC
  3. What are you listening to?

    I'm to two hours in now and it's not over, not sure about the 20 minute ref -- there's been some great guitar all through this! Thanks for that. RC
  4. What are you watching on Youtube?

    I'm sorry this isn't youtube but it opens the video. So fun!! RC
  5. What are you watching on Youtube?

    I should maybe put this in the what are you listening to thread, but it's on youtube and the instrument is so cool :-)
  6. Wikileaks has been compromised and in the hands of deepstate for quite some time now. Although they had a few things automated to go out, you should consider everything they publish in any venue -- and that includes the julian assange identities -- to be suspect. RC
  7. What made YOU laugh today/tonight ?

    I liked this humorous groove better the more of it I heard (though it might have been slightly better after the first verse)
  8. What made YOU laugh today/tonight ?

    Earl Grey that video reminds me of the (funnier) Weird Al parody White & Nerdy (with Donny Osmond in the background no less)
  9. What are you listening to?

    He's good but I can see no stars but Tommy. :-) I do have a special love for Eric Johnson still but he is from my youth. :-) He incorporated Chet Atkins' riff into this song and I loved it.
  10. What are you listening to?

    Just so ya know, Tommy Emmanuel is the most awesome guitarist on earth. Even the more-obviously awesomest guitarists think he's an animal-god. This small-theatre live conf is just ridiculous fun and of course is a wide range of everything. He's the sort that is either breathtakingly inspiring or makes you wanna go home and burn your guitar.

  11. What are you listening to?

    Well compared to y'all I'm a real hippie. I actually woke up and found myself singing this song all the way through the other day. I have no idea why, I don't think I've heard it in eons. I figured I better stop singing before I segued into American Pie or something.
  12. The Cool Picture Thread

    9th: I once saw a woman who was so beautiful that for a moment I think my heart stopped. I'm a woman, and I don't swing that way, so there was nothing in it of that kind of attraction. Beautiful people are walking works of art. Some "exceed their gender" as I put it. But rarely... you gotta wonder how it's even possible, I guess. Certainly I would pity any man who ran into her. (Edited to add: although I guess it could be seen as a brief blessing, just for the honor of the experience!) My best friend in college was from Nigeria. He told me the story of this tribe in his country that are untouchables. They evolved a strange and funny means of survival: their women are so stunningly beautiful that allegedly -- and he swears this is not just folklore -- it nearly stops men in their tracks, and as they stand there hyperventilating in near shock, or sometimes go to her mindlessly, she touches them all over -- and their tribe would have nothing to do with them after. They would choose the most handsome men in order to have the most beautiful girl children from the pairing, to repeat the cycle. The men near that region were in fear of ever seeing one of them -- like some kind of mermaid siren that would be your doom. Actually I never thought about the parallel in those stories before! RC
