I wanted a way to pass on some news to you all and saw that another forum, ('classical' I think) had a noticeboard thread. Great idea - if you want to leave another poster a message or maybe chat off-topic or announce that Led Purple have reformed and will be playing in your shed next friday you have a way of telling the world. Maybe you want to inform us that you have changed you posting name from Footman to Gender Ratchet!
Anyway you get the idea, it's probably a good thing for someone to post some nonsense (wot, us?) every couple of days to keep it from sliding out of view.

Glad to hear the news M.C

Good idea to open the noticeboard on the 'pop' forum, dear old hyper can't seem to find his way to the others.

I've noticed that Harry Potter has a forum, yes forum dedicated to him alone.
How come Zep haven't got one, some of their stuff was also magical.

a) Hallelujah! The Gods be praised (especially the one who makes sure people celebrating momentous news don't get hangovers!). I truly couldn't be happier for you, MC. This is without a doubt the best news I've heard all year so far! I assume this means the trip to the West Country is now on? If it's not too intrusive, now that everything's okay, what WAS it that had you down for a year and a half? Obviously don't answer this if you don't want to (we'll all just assume it was something VERY embarrassing involving king-size nappies!!!).
b) First 'compute' for a couple of days or so, hence tardiness of congratulations.
c) Noticeboard... brilliant idea. I'm always leaving messages for you and others (like the two recently asking you WHEN your all-clear was due) which don't get read (or, possibly, are ignored because everyone hates me, though I hope not!), so thumbs up to this one. Now let's hope everyone remembers to use it.
d) Come back to 'Sorry' you miserable gits, me'n'MK are keeping it going on our own at the moment, sort of.

Hyper you are not alone, then again perhaps you are, I might just be a fig on the end of a palm tree.

BOF says:
Hyper I will check the noticeboard maybe once a day but I've no news or anything to post at the moment, so just to say hello - hello.
Best bones.

MC Zaptone says:
Hey, hi guys, thanks for your messages of good cheer. Well I did get a hangover but it wasn't too bad all things considered. I went through the various stages of the newbie drinker (quite embarrassing), firstly, I was telling a joke three pints in when my mind went blank, then I remembered and burst out laughing at the punchline before I got there (I hate it when people do that, don't you!). Then off to another pub where the barmaid is a very attractive lady of Maltese extraction. In my (now slightly slurring [5 pints]) exuberance I announced I knew a few words of Maltese due to having worked with two blokes from Malta in the 70's - I watched as her jaw dropped and eyes bulged, then I thought, hell, probably telling her 'go stick your finger up the Virgin Mary' in her native patois wasn't really very appropriate!! Of course I have since apologised, she was just amazed anyone over here knew that phrase and complimented my accent, phew. Then it was back to mine for some music and a bit of a boogie, an old friend of mine Theresa decided to by a bottle of pub champagne - it was truly awful but somehow i figured mixing it with over-proof Jamaican rum would improve the taste (note to self never, ever try that combination again. Foul and potent in equal measure). Her husband an old schoolfriend of mine had died two years ago and we finished the evening sat listening to sad songs and blubbering like schoolgirls, perfect. Passed out around 4 am.
So there we have it, the whole gamut of drink related emotions, cheerful, merry, jovial, foot in mouth, wobbly dancing and melancholy, comatose, hangover.

Bloody Brilliant.

Once again Cheers to you all - I bloody love you, I do, your all my best mate, ever, you are (hicc)!!!!

Ps. I will tell you what the problem was if we ever all meet up, unfortunately I don't trust Big Brother re: Insurance, mortgage etc. I'm probably just a paranoid old hippy, but you never know.

Hi B.O.F; How did the trip go? plenty of booze?

What's your thoughts on the Trees album?

Posted on 28 Apr 2009 19:36:12 BDT
BOF says:
Hi Mark,
Well as you know the weather was great, sunny every day, was mainly drinking Westmalle dubbel and other such trappist dark beers. I am still listening to the Trees album reminds me of Fairport, Pentangle and the John Renbourn group, may take sometime to establish their own identity in my head. As they have only released two albums I will buy the other one later. Big fan of 70's folk anyway there is so many albums I want either because I missed them first time around or I'm replacing old vinyl.
Best bones.

In reply to an earlier post on 28 Apr 2009 19:54:26 BDT
Mark Kibble says:
Took me a while to fully appreciate them, but well worth a bit of perseverence, slightly harder edge than the Fairports in my opinion, some nice guitarwork though.
Did you see my post to S.R about Seasons by Magna Carta, thats worth a punt as well.

In reply to an earlier post on 29 Apr 2009 12:28:35 BDT

S.R.J says:
Mark-Trees I think I've got the right band-albums include 'On The Shore'(?)-very Fairport , which is no bad thing

BOF says:
Peter A. the two albums are

On the Shore by Trees (Audio CD - 2008)

Garden of Jane Delawney by Trees (Audio CD - 2008)

Best bones.

Mark Kibble says:
Thats right S.R, I've had On the shore for about eighteen months now, cracking album once it all sinks in. Still can't decide whether its folk rock or rock folk though, if you get my drift.
The other album I mentioned, Seasons by Magna Carta is a mixture of what I would describe as English folk with some Simon and Carbunkle thrown in for good measure. The title track lasts about twenty minutes, each season introduced with a short poem then followed by a musical passage, the nearest I've got to a concept folk piece, works well but the killer track is Airport song.

Haven't played either for a while, had to get a new pc about five weeks ago, and I'm being strict with myself, loading my discs alphabeticly.
No complaints tonite though, I'm up to J which at this very moment means Tull's Benefit aaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

Doing a crossy, clue was popular name for Scottish Parliament. Totally stumped, had to look up answer and apparently we all refer to them as Holyrood. News to me!!!!!

Peter your dannies should be rapped.
Incidently were you aware that the american film industry wanted to name their headquarters after the Scottish parliament, However when they rang up to get its name they mispunched the number, fortunately Wossy new the answer.
