    Name two guitar heros.

    Mark Knopfler & Leo Kottke. I'd like to include David Gilmour in this list, but Knopfler had more to do with getting me into playing guitar in the first place, and Kottke (eventually) had a greater & lasting influence on my playing. There it is.

    Hey MLP, long time, no see. Another Rainbow Bridge Thread

    Thanks to all. Feeling a whole lot better today than I did yesterday. My colleagues have been incredibly supportive as well, and the relief is overtaking the grief. Gonna keep a candle lit for him for a few days. Here are a few pics of Juno from his younger years. What a goof.

    Hey MLP, long time, no see. Another Rainbow Bridge Thread

    As the title suggests... Haven't been hanging around here for a while, but I've read many of these Rainbow Bridge threads here over the years, and I knew one day I'd be writing my own, so here goes. Juno was a Maltese cross, although we never fully established what the "cross" was. He made it...

    I haven't really been 'round MLP for a while, and haven't "liked" a post for many a month, but this one - THIS one - you win.

    RockDoc-Biopics: Queen vs. Mötley Crüe

    Let me start by saying I am a pretty huge fan of Queen, but not at all a fan of Mötley Crüe. Deal with that as you will. The Queen biopic, for all its faults and freewheeling discrepancies with the timeline of actual events, was an enjoyable romp through the formation, life & times of Queen. I...

    Another "What Are the Odds?" Thread.

    I am a schoolteacher at an international school in Singapore. A couple of weeks ago I found a letter in my mailbox cubby addressed to our campus and "Any Gr. X Teacher." There are four of us on our particular team, and we actually have 2 campuses. I opened the envelope and there were two...

    jokes & funnies.

    Just wanna say, 750K for that home is an outright steal. Out where I'm from, you couldn't touch that for under 2, 2.5 mil, minimum.

    Old classic commercials..

    There was a commercial I remember for Live Savers candy from back in the 70s... (music & singing) "It's the super-super flavor of Life (life!) Savers, spread the super flavor around!" Can't find a version of it anywhere. Am I imagining it? Is this the Berernstain Bears of my existence? Do you...

    Post a pic of your fav acoustic

    Maestro - not a brand you're likely to be familiar with, but it's a keeper. The top has mellowed to a nice caramel colour, I really need to take some updated photos.

    The "Sweet Victory" Controversy - WTF?

    I'd never heard of this song until after the SB, when Twitter, Reddit, etc, all went up in arms over why M5 didn't play this song. So, against my better judgment, I looked it up. Not only does it not sound like anything by M5 I've ever heard, but it's a literal representation of what it means...

    This is what a perfect 10 looks like...

    Not a fan of all the showboating. Do your routine, keep it classy, save the dancing for the after-party. YMMV. And, get off my lawn.
