Wow, what a grey rainy weekend that was. And now a grey, rainy week. Spring... why is spring so bleak?

Went to see a live concert last night. I tried to search youtube afterwards, but none of the posted videos really did justice to last nights experience. Some things are just better seen and heard for real. Kacey Musgraves does have a fantastic voice.

We went back to my place and overslept in the morning. My friend missed her intended train back, so had to take half the day off from work. I would call that a good day :wink:

I know you lads aren't musicians but omfg! I had to go see a lawyer yesterday to witness some paperwork and by a happy coincidence part of my order with my local music store arrived too.

The Keeley Dyno My Roto pedal. It is freakin awesome!

You probably have to be a musician to truly appreciate it

I've been following the developments in Hong Kong for a few weeks now... Looks like things are going to go from bad to worse soon as neither side seems inclined to back down. The news media corporations love it. Civil war brewing and no westerners in the firing line (at the moment)

This is so sad, funny, hilarious and outrageous at the same time, it could have been a Peter Sellers/Pink Panther movie:

Guy with a silicone mask in a fake office, pretending to be a french minister, scamming wealthy people out of millions of dollars :mrgreen:

I think Kim is missing a golden opportunity here... he had Trump within range of his artillery and the creep (Trump) is still breathing. Major disappointment :look:

Trump is just dying (unfortunately not literally) to start a war with Iran. His latest trick, ordering the UK to seize Iranian oil tankers when they get close to Gibraltar. You can almost see him twiddling his thumbs, waiting for Iran to seize a British oil tanker around Hormuz in retaliation. He'll stop at nothing and keep getting more and more provocative until he gets the war he wants.
