seemingly there was an obstacale on the track that caused eine grosse katastroph, sounded a lot like a woman.

Or the grog or both Mel!

Anyway, to download the file would be a nightmare on dial up so I will have to be satisfied with your stories, which are always of interest anyway.

Always three sides to a story Ric.
His side, my side and the truth. 🙄

I will have a go at the vid tomorrow, there is but five minutes of the bloke, I nearly said guy then, but I shall post some MP3s on my blog when I get the CD, just a straight listen in then.

I have started a new blog, I pulled the other one, I used to end up like the Tasmanian fellow 👿 on the cartoons after I had finished writing about the sanctimonious hypocritical fundamentalists. Pray for George W Bush, give me a @*&%# break. 👿 👿 👿

So I was guest blogging for another site, it did me the world of of good, having to keep a lid on it, if you go to my new blog you will notice the difference, not an expletive in sight, apart from the Rude Pundit Quiz, but I am only using his own material for that.

I am not going to go searching for the name (I don't trust myself not to loose this comment) but there is a member here who's sig is to hell with the PC and tell it like it is.
If you follow the link to the "Rude Pundit" there's a boy who certainly tells it how it is, well you'll get the idea from the quiz.

Check out the "Spider" if you're over there, you blokes being experts on 'em.
Peace.
Mel

G'day all.
I cut the movie down to five minutes, 13.4 mb.
Never really having listened to any didge playing before I can't draw a comparison, so I would be more than interested how you rate the lad, not that there is an awful lot to go on.
All I can say, he certainly did it for me.
Peace
Mel

G'day Irene.
Thanks again fo the heads up, the didge shop I had allready visitted when I was on my initial quest.
The music on offer in the second, though I did listen to a few tracks I would like to resreve judgement on it untill I get to hear more of me man.
First impression though was that they had done the same with the didge as a lot of people have done with my favourite instument, the uilleann pipes, that is to use them play what I would describe as only commercial jingles.
Whereas in both cases it may keep the instrument in public awareness it's not the kind of music I think I'm looking for, but as I have allready stated I need to hear more from this young man.
That said, is there not one among you curious enough to have a listen to him through the link in my previous post?
Peace
Mel.

Not on dial up mate. Videos, music and even some photos take so long to download it a job to do with a cut lunch!

Hi Mel
Yes, I was interested to follow it up, but was silly enough to download it on a dial up connection - took me forever, as Ric says!!! I had time to go out socialising for several hours while it downloaded!!!
However, once I eventually got it downloaded, I did find it interesting.

Fair play to you both, I had no idea dialup was that grim. 🙁
Still waiting to hear from from the man at this place, it's taken two emails to get as far as "I'll have a look see if we have a copy" he's gone walkabout methinks. 🙄
Peace
Mel

Seems dialup isn't the only thing that's grim, I came across this from the beeb describing the water situation in Queensland.

Irene, g'day to you. I should have asked before what you thought to the lad's music, the bit he did play, was it in any recognizable style that you might be familiar with?
Best.
Mel

Very impressive Ric, now I'm finally in, thanks for sorting it.

Well, there'll be corn in Eygypt next, I am finally the owner of me man and his music and I have to say it was worth the wait.

If I had a metric, I could no doubt rattle on about the album, but I ain't so I can't, but that doesn't stop me wondering how a didge music pundit would describe/rate the CD.
So if there is anybody here that's on broadband and fancies an earfull please PM your email and I will send a few tracks.

Not much poetry being writ I'm afraid, the blog seemingly taking what bit of creativity that I have.
I do have Manny,s poem posted (A Cynical Skeptic) and sure it looks the business.
http://onlyinamericablogging.blogspot.com/

I will try to find a host site for MP3's and get a bit of something up there, probably UTorrent, I did manage to install the program and dowload the TV program of me man and even went on to edit it, so now that I am super duper with this technology thing who knows? ::) ::) ::)

As I said Ric the new layout is impressive, lots o' buttons n'all.
Any bit of a button so us philistines can check us spelling?

Peace
Mel

Sorry Mel.  No spell checkers here given that our members specialise in impeccable grammar and spelling.  They would turn out to be bloody American anyway and keep telling you to use a z instead of and s!

However, did you happen to note that misspelt words are underlined?  Or perhaps that is in Firefox.

Regards,

Ric

Well Ric I did have a particularized 😮 reason for asking...

Iv'e been waiting to use that one ever since I saw a print article quoting a yanky JUDGE ::) no less.
I used to cringe when I saw burgalerized, :-[ but particularized  😮 😮 :otakes the biscuit, or in this case the cookie.
And that's with a zee, not a zed. ;D ;D ::) and not a bloody ess in sight.

There is a particularized reason for this, as the following post, coppied and pasted from my blog, explains.

What's In A Browser?
.
Sure I wouldn't be knowing, all I'd be knowing is one can cut the mustard and one can't.

When the mustard is copy/paste that is. I have spent more hours than I have digits trying to get texts to paste in the same configuration as they were copied, I.E. (7) now there's an abbreviation for you, id est the poem below. No matter what I tried I always end up with one continuous block of text, in the finish I typed the poem from scratch in the "Compose " window.
Going by this laborious route I at least ended up with separate lines if not paragraphs, even they wanted to amalgamate, hence all the little full stops that can be found throughout the blog.

Then a little bird whispered in my ear, I listened to his advice, implemented it, and a very short story was born.

Install FireFox, copy, paste, desired result, end of story.

Just as a matter of interest, the above text has four paragraphs, let's see how it pastes with IE7.

And sure I didn't twig the underlining (with FireFox) at first, I just put it down to a new feature from blogger.

But comming back to praise  Reynard, I have just posted the "Second Rude Quiz" (and last)
Now if you're a bloke that likes a colourful turn of phrase, or a foul-mouthed Sheila for that matter, go have a little read.

The point being, I typed every bloody word of the first quiz, and copy/pasted every word of the second, and didn't have to touch it once in the editor, apart from the full stop above the sub title, I still have to figure that one.

So I don't have to be telling you how firefox has made my life soooo much easier, I don't have to be tellin' ye at all at all.

Anon.
Peace
Mel
