Quote from: BobGrau on August 25, 2011, 05:28:06 AMjust in case my last few posts made me look a bit of a wuss.
Quote from: Avi on August 25, 2011, 08:42:07 AMWell, ya know I didn't want to say anything, but the wuss factor is a big concern. I think you might need the moss-covered, three-handled, wuss gradunza to straighten out your wuss levels. You may even have to resort to speaking in anapestic tetrameter to throw off any supercilious wuss-sniffers. Increased percussion and devils in bathtubs may be mistaken for the showy plumage of a closeted wuss, for no one else believes in Lego hell. Personally, I don't believe in wusses, either.

Quote from: BobGrau on August 26, 2011, 11:18:11 AMaaah, brittany... (the place, that is) I spent several summer holidays there as a moody teenager, smoking furtive gauloise cigarettes amongst the mysterious stones of Carnac.Didn't hear much music, mind.I liked the second of your vids in particular - Jethro Tull on quaaludes? [yes, I believe that Jethro Tull did Quaaludes] - but it's difficult for me to separate music like that from all the cultural baggage that inevitably goes along with it. I was brought up being dragged along to stuff like that to get some culture down me. It works better when you're old enough to drink.
Quote from: Avi on August 26, 2011, 11:56:17 PMWell, being an outsider in Irish society, I was free to appreciate the traditional music while the natives dismissed it with, "That auld rot!" Although Ireland produces some divine alcoholic elixirs (Oh, Guinness, my deep, dark, coffee-chocolate darling), the natives were down the pub drinking Miller Lite. The Tiger (now the Hamster) and Riverdance - of all things - changed this do-down-all-things-Irish culture a bit, thankfully, but in my youth, most of the natives felt dragged along to get some culture down 'em, too. But all I could think when I heard stuff like this was, "Brilliant!"
Quote from: Eddie Coyle on August 27, 2011, 12:01:38 AM As a frequent visitor there in the 1990's it was extraordinarily depressing to hear their radio stations polluted with Garth Brooks, Bon Jovi and other things that make me wish the colonies were never founded.
Quote from: Avi on August 27, 2011, 12:22:41 AMHa! I'll admit that I went to the Michael Jackson concert (hangs head in shame) where people were heard to remark, "Man, I haven't had to piss in a field like this since the Pope came!"
