    A Gentler Form of Genocide

    I am not defending the policies of the Chinese or North Korean governments, and nor am I criticising them. I am merely pointing out an apparent inequality in site policy. However, as stated above, this is a private site and the owner sets the rules. Additionally, as is also pointed out, one can...

    A Gentler Form of Genocide

    Well, how about I put it this way? It would be nice if the same standards applied to US politics were expanded to cover all political discussions. That way, threads like this one, the one about Kim Jong-Un and quite a few others wouldn't exist. I'm not saying that the positions taken by...

    A Gentler Form of Genocide

    Me too. In fact, whilst in no way passing judgment on the post that started this thread, I do find a lot of the things written in here about Asian countries in particular to be quite misguided and offensive. One can see lots of that sort of thing directed at other countries than the United...

    FS: Eric Clapton Fender EC Tremolux-$1500

    Great amp and a great price! These are double what you're asking in Japan at the moment...if you can even find one.

    Well this is interesting....Medieval swordplay in the ring...Older video but what the hell

    I'm sure there are strict rules about illegal hit types. Probably no stabbing, no striking below the knees, no deliberate groin shots...stuff like that. That being said, these guys (I have only seen guys do it so far) are clearly nuts and are really going for it. When I was at University 30...

    FreddyG's Double Cuts

    This is how it should be done!

    "The Searchers" is an awesome movie and "Fort Apache" kicks ass. The Duke is an icon and no one can convince me otherwise.

    Y'know, I've often heard this sort of thing from those who know famous people, and especially ones who tend to be represented otherwise in the media. I've met a few well-known folks over the years and they've generally been nothing like their public image. I've even got a brother who is on TV...

    What price fast cars in London?

    :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: Now that's something that pretty well everyone can agree on!

    "They" are everywhere...

    Is this an easy fix

    Thanks for the clarification. In that case, any reservations I expressed about the repairer are cheerfully and fully withdrawn. Good luck with it all!

    Is this an easy fix

    Oh man, do I hear you! I've got a '69 Goldtop Deluxe with exactly this problem. Neck/headstock break into multiple pieces put back together into a kind of Brutalist epoxy/wood sculpture. I bought it in that condition and haven't done anything yet. I'm still wondering whether I'll put in the...

    Is this an easy fix

    I was going to say something like this too, but wondered whether it was appropriate for me to do so, as I didn't want to criticise a repairer (especially one about whom I knew nothing else) on scant evidence. Now the cat is out of the bag, however...yes, this is a really good point. One thing...

    "The Searchers" is an awesome movie and "Fort Apache" kicks ass. The Duke is an icon and no one can convince me otherwise.

    Well, perhaps the thing is that his body of work can mean a lot of things to a lot of different people. Often powerful things. Surely that's a good legacy to have for anyone.

    For those who have watched Andertons TV for a some time... VOTE!!

    I think Peter comes across as more musically versatile, but they're both good in their way. I used to enjoy the Rob Chapman videos then kind of got over it all. He didn't do anything in particular from my perspective. It was just all a bit same-ish and he started to seem much more concerned...

    Always enjoy a bit of the Duke. "The Searchers" is good fun on lots of levels and offers something for different people. It's great for someone relaxing on a lazy Sunday afternoon with a few beers, yet is also very popular in gender studies classes worldwide, as it's widely considered one of...
