    Hah! I don't think so, Roy... But I can't answer your question, it's too specifically about a show that I don't watch. :(

    So, here goes to keep this great thread going... I don't watch Breaking Bad, so I don't have a favourite or least favourite character. In fact, Breaking Bad is one of those TV trends that suddenly blows up and becomes a water-cooler moment (like Mad Men or Game of Thrones) that I just don't 'get'.

    So my question is, what popular cultural trend do you just not 'get'?

    I'm by no means a microphone aficionado (or a great singer for that matter), but I do like my Behringer B-1 studio condenser microphone.

    What was / is your mother's first name? Mine's was Doreen.

    Judith.

    What did you/do you plan to/would you call your first born child? How hard was it to choose, and did you ever waiver from your choice?

    Leon Alexander.

    Took a while to get there, but once we had it, no doubt.

    What do you think of the song 'prisoner' by the Pretty Reckless? (Please, no "don't know it" answers).

    I've heard a few of their works, since I listen to the local college station at work (This gets me a lot of strange glances from people, since I'm in my sixties. ) Anyway, it is a bit of a departure from their previous works. Slower, bluesy..........I like it.

    Are you open minded when it come to music, or do you stick to one genre?

    i'm open minded about music, but i don't really go out of my way to find anything new anymore. i'm still trying to catch up on music made years or decades ago. i know there's people out there making things i would be interested in, but there's thousands out there now.

    this is the last new thing i've heard that i love:



    and i don't really know how "new" it is.


    who is the best new rock and roll band in the world right now? new as in came out in the past 5 years?

    They've been around for a while, but they just made it big last year (I've been a fan for around 4 years now and they're my favorite band now)

    TAME IMPALA! Kevin is absolutely amazing.


    What is the oldest band that you regularly listen to? Mine is Quintet du Hot Club de France (Django Reinhardt)

    Louis Armstrong and band from the 1920's

    If there was high speed rail in the USA, would you use that for travel instead of flying?

    Scrambled, of course. They will, however, say an egg benediction.

    What's your favorite thing about your favorite person?

    Pat Barker's Regeneration. I read it when I was in my early twenties, but I wish I had read it as a teenager, so powerful is it on the horrors of war. And I Claudius, which should be read by every teenager - it has everything you could want in a page-turner, sex, violence, madness, backstabbing politics and humour.

    Everything else, as with music, seems to reach me at the time that I'm ready for it, even if it's waaaayy behind the time that everyone else reads it.

    2016 has been, for me, the most dreadful year, and I've spent much of it in a terrible mood - angry and bitter and resentful. So, I've been listening to a lot of dark, heavy, loud music. Tech Thrash, D-Beat, Black Metal, Doom, Death Metal, the more extreme the better.

    What music do you gravitate towards when you are in a bad mood, and is the intention for it to cheer you up or to revel in your misery?

    I think I gravitate for the same music no matter what mood I'm in.
    But if I'm in a bad mood and I put some music it's to cheer me up, otherwise I wouldn't listen to anything.

    What's the latest record you got addicted to?

    Joe Satriani's 'Shockwave Supernova'. He has a knack of making often very complex pieces instantly likeable and there's guitar tones to die for all over this album. He never ceases to amaze me - he's 60 now and every record he makes has some of the best things he's ever done. The gorgeous 'Littleworth Lane' from his previous album springs to mind. His playing is always faultless and he combines precision and feel beautifully.

    Have you ever worked with someone who shares the same birthday as you? (not necessarily the same year - just month and date), and how did you get on with each other?

    Yes...well, not really worked together...we were in elementary school from grade 1-5, and she was five hours younger than me.

    She was very short, very round and wore glasses so thick she could see the future. But, because she was funny and we shared the same birthday, we were friends, and would hang out on the monkey bars during recess. Other boys (and some of the girls) made fun of her incessantly. the other boys also made fun of me for being friends with a girl, but I didn't care--I was just happy to have a friend.

    (The weird thing was, I don't celebrate my birthday--or anyone else's--so I don't know how she knew we shared one. I guess we were friends before we found that out).

    She moved away after grade 5. Her family moved back in grade 8, and she had, erm...blossomed. She had gotten contacts, lost weight, grown taller and become a lovely young lady.

    All the guys were talking about the new "Hot girl" who had just enrolled, and how they wanted to meet her, etc...she walked past them, walked directly up to me, gave me a very big, lingering hug, and said, "I'm so glad to see you, would you eat lunch with me?“

    That was a good day in Fiesta Red Land.

    We lost touch after graduation, but when my daughter started elementary school--at the same elementary school I went to--there was Angela. Her kids were a couple of years older than my kid, but she was a part of the "Orientation Committee" to teach new moms and dads theories. She was still as sweet as ever.

    Do you have any pieces of gear you don't really use, but can't get rid of, because of sentimentality?

    Yes, my first guitar - an 80s MIK Fender Gemini II acoustic. It was a gift from my uncle out of his collection when I said that I wanted to learn. I don't play it so much now, but will never get rid of it.

    What has been your favourite question in this thread?

    Any that gets more than the pointless 'no, I've not heard that one, so I've got no opinion on it, but here's my question anyway' variety. And yes, I'm guilty of that myself! :lol:

    Have you ever needed life-saving surgery?
