I like the cool americans ( like you guys ), but I don't like the americans who think people from south america are inferior to them
Did you meet anyone from there? Youre not too far off...lol
I loved the statement "they will tell you their life story in the first 5 minutes"
It's really interesting the way folks in the states will drop it all on you right off the bat. And not only about themselves, but usuallly, mid way through that story, it gets twisted to another family member, or friend, which takes the story in another direction. If you dont watch yourself, you could be standing around for hours listening to this person babble. Whether you want to hear it or not.
I think maybe were just fascinated with the sound of our own voices?
Thanks for your patience
This proves 3 things to me, phil:
1. You are a Cockney;
2. You've never been to Liverpool;
3. You are a wanker (well, you've admitted it yourself...)
Final confirmation of the 3 above things is shown by the fact that you have previously stated you prefer a Banjocaster over a Les Paul! Feckin' heretic!!! Plink, plink, quack, quack! Pass me my 6 feet of pedalboard.
Look people, I told you he was a Banjocaster lover!!! Those things next to the Lester are feckin' ugly. Period. Gold plated parts on a piece of firewood? Do me a favour!!! Never mind, you've got enough firewood to see you through the cold spell.
Being retarded, I can set my own hours...
North London, and you have the cheek to take the piss out of me, a Scouser? And what's all this shit about Bow Bells? You a Pearly King, or what?
And in reply to number 2: you stupid get - that was Manchester. Feckin' wake up when you head North.
And you're the Southern softie wanker with Alzheimers - Everton played Arsenal a couple of weeks ago. Sorry, I forgot Southerners know shit all about football.
As for Americans, a couple of examples:
1. Took 'er indoors to New York for her 50th birthday for a few days. Got into a famous yellow cab and asked the driver to take me to the Dakota Building. He didn't know of it. So I says, the place where John Lennon was shot and killed... No, he still didn't know it. "What the fuck!" says I. "Ssshhh!" says Anne. "I'm outta here" I said, and we both got out of the taxi. Couldn't believe it! The next taxi guy knew it in an instant, and was great.
2. On one occasion me and my son were talking to a New Yorker (here in Norwich) who had a wonderful broad accent. Son was saying how he would really like to get to New York one day. So this guy pounces immediately and says "You wanna go to New York? Save yer fuckin' money!" Brilliant, absolutely brilliant! I could have made that guy an honorary Scouser on the spot. Son was speechless.
Finally, stop posting pictures of Banjocasters, or I'll personally come down there, shave off all your grey hair, and throw you in the Channel. So there.
Myself on the other hand do live in the afore mentioned area of the US...
mmm possum lard ....
Oh I bet the Yanks loved you John...
The first question one must ask is, did they understand what you were saying?
For you Americans, here's a scousers accent and as you can see they can't even agree over breakfast let alone take a cab ride round New York.
Are we having a laugh!
Oh I bet the Yanks loved you John...
The first question one must ask is, did they understand what you were saying? Of course they did, cos I talk proper, like, doan eye!
For you Americans, here's a scousers accent and as you can see they can't even agree over breakfast let alone take a cab ride round New York. Still trotting out that Southern wanker Enfield, eh...
BanjoCasters are brilliant..How comes you have a 70's one then?..See. nobody knows John secretly owns a Strat. He says it's for his Grandson.. Yeah..Bloody Scousers. ??? Yep, I bought my grandson a '79 USA Banjocaster (shit cheap, of course). Here it is:
Well Arsenal are playing the pie munchers soon, so we'll see what the outcome of that is.. Luckily I don't watch football, but I'll take a keen interest in that match.. You mean they're due to play the Red Shite soon?
I'll have to find another Banjocaster pic to post for you. Don't feckin' bother!!! Then you can shave my hair and throw me in the channel..
I'll be OK on both counts though.. Firstly I'll just pinch your wig. Temporarily of course, as I wouldn't want to be seen with a syrup like that on my bonce in public. And secondly you probably don't know where the English channel is anyway.. ( Coming from Liverpool )...... I've flown across the Channel many times on my way to Deutschland for you-know-what. Don't mention the war, I mentioned it once, but I think I got away with it.

PS. For our colonial cousins, the word 'syrup' in phil's last paragraph translates thus: syrup = syrup of fig, which is Cockney rhyming slang for wig. Gerrit?
I'm hoping grandson, when he is old enough, will sell the Banjocaster to get some additional funds to buy a real guitar (to you, my friend, that means GIBSON).
Those trips to Deutschland were finished many years ago. I've finished the researching and writing now, with the last book that came out last May. Why the German side? Everything had been done from our side, as all our archives were intact. To give a view from the other side, you had to get with the individuals who flew the missions to get anywhere near to the complete picture. The only thing I've got left to write now is the story of the nefarious goings-on of my early-'70s rock band. When it's completed it will be printed off and sealed until they are of an age when they can read the whole thing (minimum 16, I think).
Nice clip from the Battle of Britain of Holmes of 504 Squadron shooting down that Heinkel on 15th Septpember 1940. What was not shown, and also not recounted on the fairly recent documentary about that shooting down, was that the German pilot who baled out wounded was beaten up so badly by civilians that he died of his injuries.
