    looks more like a paddle, hence the correct title:

    You'll be the envy of all your friends once you start using paddle & capstan.
    Don't forget to tell them about kara-okay once they're accustomed to change.

    If your friends aren't willing to learn, they're not really your friends.

    That's the spirit:

    I hadn't actually kept up with this thread, I was avoiding the snarky retorts, but decided to read through while I finished watching the Vikings series finalé.

    They were playing 'Fire on the Mountain' when I tuned in, so you decide.

    Yeah, no one reacted when Hendrix set his guitar on fire, because it was the Music that mattered.

    Are you a fan of The King of Queens?

    I leave mine on.
    The clip is formed wire and I have the body of the tuner behind the headstock ..... practically invisible.

    Well, at least I'm not the only one distracted by it. To me it's like a ballerina came out in a completely white cotton tutu & there's this large black speck on it. It distracts the viewer from the performance.
    I've already wasted too much of my mind on this discussion, & a mind is a terrible thing to taste:

  15. It’s too bad you feel as is you’re wasting your time on this topic. You started the thread.

    I love Ministry, but the tutu thing - that is really disturbing.

  17. AKA, It did not go as I wanted it to. :sorry:

    I think Uncle Al wore a tutu when he recorded a cover of Black Sabbath's Supernaut.
    He would be proud to have someone say it was 'disturbing':

    I'm sure he's dabbled in all sorts of women's wear.

    If you are of a mind to appreciate, his autobio is "fun".

    I'll make mention, I once saw him on a bill at uni with Koko Taylor and Joe Jackson and also some jangly REM-ish band I can't recall the name of.

    EDIT: I think it was Butch Vig's band, Spooner.
