    Another one came to me in a dream: Another cruel Japanese-style show where the competing guitarist can be subjected to mild electric shocks by the judges when they make a mistake.
    It could be called 'Careful With That Axe, You Genius'. :lol:

    This one - beautiful. Ferrari's prancing horse gives it a run for its money. The Italians do automotive beauty better than anyone else.

    Favourite logo for anything?

    The early friendly 'rainbow' Apple colour logo. I really miss it. :cry:

    What's your favourite quote by a musician? One that sticks in my mind is from a late 70s interview with Ted Turner from Wishbone Ash; 'As soon as a band starts to make any money in this country, the Taxman's all over you like a fly on a piece of sh1t - it's disgusting.'

    "the people in the cheaper seats clap your hands, and the rest of you just rattle your jewelry". John Lennon at the Royal Variety Performance.

    Chunky, or creamy peanut butter?

    Chunky - hands down. If we don't have chunky (and if I'm using peanut butter) I sometimes mix sunflower seeds in with the creamy.

    If you didn't have to work, and you could have two nice houses anywhere in the world, where would they be (and where would you live most of the time)?

    Summer - house on a lake in New Hampshire.
    Winter - Southern California on a beach (most of the time there)

    What was the last thing you used duct tape for?

    As masking tape to paint a bright red stripe at the edge of an optically challenging step, mostly for the sake of my elderly mother-in-law.

    Are you as excited about the return of the McRib as the guy in the commercial seems to be?

    Definitely not! I wouldn't eat that crap unless I was near-death from starvation

    What is worse? A person who claims to like you and rips you off or mistreats you, or a person who just right upfront says they don't like you before they've even gotten to know you at all? And why?

    I'd much rather know what I'm dealing with - so if I had to, I'd go for the latter.

    ...and the big question - should I shave my beard off?

    Only if you leave an epic moustache.

    my worst grooming mistake was that i had a mustache for years. when i see photos of myself from then, i ask myself "what, did i think that looked good?" cause it didn't.

    Beatles, Elvis, or Frank Zappa?

    Rock & roll is about kicking out the jams and getting it on, and it should never be intellectual. Therefore: Elvis, though I love all three.

    Back to the grooming theme: Is there any look you've had in the past you wish you could still pull off? (My bleached spiked hair circa 1985 would have put Billy Idol to shame.)

    Not really; I looked forward to hitting 30 so I could start dressing like all men should and stop having to pretend that I cared about the fickle finger of fashion. Five years later, I still wear essentially the same uniform made up of classic items (slim, dark denim; white and pale blue Oxford shirts, grey loopback sweatshirts, brown brogues, plain white sneakers, blazers, plain white tees, crew neck sweaters, good suit, nice but unostentatious watch, etc). I'll keep the same haircut and beard, too. I think I'll wear variations on the same theme for the rest of my days and be very happy.

    If you could change anything about the way you were raised, what would it be?

    I wish my parents were a bit more open minded...about just about everything.

    If mom or dad didn't like it, it was bad. And wrong. Possibly evil. Probably immoral.

    That applied to movies, music, TV shows, clothes, cars, people, lawn care products and food.

    Oh well, it made me a bit more tolerant, because I was determined not to be that way.

    How many vehicles have you owned/leased in your life?

    Best vehicle you have ever driven?

    That's a hard thing to decide.

    Coolest has to be a client's 1959 Porsche I drove back in college when I changed the oil and did the state inspection (he saw how I took such good care of my own car and his other vehicles, and said, "Take it around the block, kid!")...or my dad's 1956 Ford, which he "spent my inheritance on" during restoration (his words, not mine...I didn't care either way, it's his money)...or my own first car, a 1964 2DHT Ford Falcon Futura (which I still own and have started restoring recently)...

    Fastest?
    Probably my brother's 1969 El Camino. I don't know what was under the hood, but that thing was a beast. He didn't have it long, he goes through cars like a hot knife through butter.

    Smoothest/nicest?
    My boss's brand-new (at the time) 2015 Mercedes sedan. It was the top-of-the-line model--(I don't know the models of Euro cars) and it rode smoother and quieter than anything I had driven before then.

    Worst car you've ever driven, and worst you've ever owned?

    Probably my ex flat mates Peugeot which she never looked after.

    A Mazda 323 which I thought a heap of junk.

    Favourite car of all time?

    Ferrari GTO 250. Most beautiful car ever designed, bar none.

    What factors do you consider when buying a car? Is comfort more important than performance? What are your non-negotiables in a car spec?

    Price, operating costs, comfort, safety, performance, looks.

    How old were you when you learned to drive? (I was 13)
