    Worse. I've had empty beer bottles thrown at me. It was like 'Bob's Country Bunker' from The Blues Brothers but without the chicken wire! Due to a promotion c0ck-up, our band were booked to play on the same night a Northern Soul disco was due... but no-one told the disco audience their show was cancelled. The Band Played On. :p

    I hated disco at the time, but I heard some in a shop the other day and thought 'I get it now'. Great bass playing in those records in general. How do you feel about disco music now?

    About the same, I like it better than bro country and death metal, but not much more.
    What is your favorite "decade" for music?
    I'm a 1970s guy.

    The seventies for me too. I managed to hate disco and yet love the BGs go figure

    Who the heck would you cast in place of John Wayne in a western today ?

    Quite the question since I don't like John Wayne or most westerns, although I did like The Revenant. Maybe a "western" told from the indigenous point of view, with new actors in it. The recent Canadian film Maliglutit (Searchers) is a remake of John Ford's The Searchers that does just that.



    Is there a film genre that doesn't do much for you even though your peers enjoy it? Why?

    Horror, hate it, don't get it, wish it never happened.
    Who is your favorite actor, based on acting abilities, not appearance?

    Gawd that's a tricky one! Gene Hackman just sprung to mind; French Connection 1 & 2, The Conversation, The Firm, Prime Cut, Target, No Way Out, Narrow Margin. He even does a great pantomime baddie in the Superman films. Not too shabby eh? I even forgive him for Absolute Power. :eek:

    Question as above, but actress?

    Female actor? It's a bit of a cliche, but Meryl Streep.

    Favourite director?

    I don't have an absolute favorite, but have enjoyed most of Ron Howard's work. "Apollo 13", and "How the Grinch Stole Christmas", are two that come to mind.

    Do you go to movie theatres, or do you prefer to wait for the movies release to cable/home video?

    I love the movie theatres. Or theaters. All I care about is all you can eat popcorn and all you can drink soda. I don't even care what horror movies or chick flick Mrs. Blue drags me to. I enjoy movies at home too, but being at the theatre is the best. Probably because I never went as a kid.
    Same question?

    I enjoy going to the movies, but don't go as often as I'd like. Big screen movies are like looking at vinyl album artwork. The beauty is in the detail.

    What was he last movie you saw?
     

  11. BigDaddyLH

    The new Spider-Man movie (Spider-Man: Homecoming) -- my daughter wanted to see it, She smuggled in a drink -- milk!

    Do you smuggle in food or drink? Or is there something you've gotta have? Popcorn, thin mints?

    Last movie I saw for myself was Warcraft: The Beginning. It didn't do well particularly in the USA but I loved it. I used to love playing Warcraft II and I went into it from that point of view. I hope there's a sequel but it isn't looking promising.

    The last movie I actually watched (wife's choice) was Mermaids. It was alright.

    Same question.

    The last movie I saw on the big screen was Cars 3, with my three-year-old. It was great; a return to the charm of the first and a good way to completely wipe the slate clean after the horror of the second. Next up is Dunkirk on iMax. Kind of thing you have to see on the big screen, I think.

    My local cinema stopped doing Peanut M&M's. This is unacceptable. So I always take in a bag.

    Do you go to watch professional sport live? What's your sport and who's your team? I watch Lincoln City as often as I can (which - given the travel time - isn't as often as I'd like), and will see Arsenal play a few times a season. I also try to get a day at an England cricket test match each summer.

    Nope.
    Do you enjoy going out to dinner?

    I do if the food's good, but I've been having one disappointment after another lately - one supposedly upmarket eaterie listed their fries as 'triple cooked' They were barely single cooked! Many previously reliable establishments in my area have let their standards slip badly.

    Have you ever injured yourself do to a slip on an icy / snowy pavement?

    No, but I slipped over in a shower on my honeymoon in Bali and suffered some soft tissue damage, does that count?

    How often do you play your guitar, either for practice or performing?

    All the time, I should be way better!
    Are you meticulous about "nailing" a guitar part, or are you more "interpretive" (do it your own way)?

    Not a question targeting Australians :p

    Interpretive, with my arthritic hands even Twinkle little star sounds like Cryin in the rain.


    Do you sing when you play ?

    I sing and accompany myself, I don't scat or sing/hum when I play.
    I know a guy that does, it's disconcerting, IMO.
    Can you sing and play bass?
