    Season 638: Road signs

    What about motorway, petrol, shopping centre etc and the anglo european versions like autobahn,auto route etc ? I mean 2468 Freeway doesn't have quite the same ring as Tom Robinson Bands 2468 Motorway. I better watch it though ,Patty might think I'm being snitty . I'm not , just having a larf...

    Season 637 - Here and Now

    I think this fits the theme because the song hankers after past Here and Nows , which although historically and accurately ,yesterday, still live in us today and will tommorrow as well, so a bit sort of days of future passed (Moody Blues). Unless I have completely missed the ethos and point of...

    Season 636 - One for sorrow...

    For SotU 636 One for Sorrow .... we have gone this time for the no. 2 Joy a la Stevie Ray Vaughan's "Pride and Joy". I have to say that having once loved this song it now rather sets my teeth on edge, given the sentiment of the lyrics, but enough about that. It doesn't stop it being a...

Careful ,it's four minutes of your life that you won't get back.Its got One for sorrow, Three for a girl,four for a boy....in...

    Season 634 - Love Your Larynx!

    For season 634 Look After Your Larynx* we have something that nearly caused me to burst mine . Never ,ever ,ever have I had soooooooooooo much resistance from software, in this case the Filmora 13 Wondershare tat that poses as an editing suite and video capture etc program. It doesn't do the...

    Seasonistas general thread: yakking, joshing, news and pictures

    Yeah, well I'll base my understanding of taste from my own experience thanks . When I get a cold and blocked nose my food doesn't taste as good. Not a submission that seems to be arguing theclaim for the sake of arguing and furthermore makes no sense, as there plenty of other sources exist on...

    Seasonistas general thread: yakking, joshing, news and pictures

    The thing that I most remember from my time in Singapore was how foul those durians smelled, even the durian flavoured ice lollies and ice cream smelled evil, but everyone insisted that if you can get past the smell it is extremely tasty.....which amazes me seeing as how the scent of food is...

    SOTU 633: Time is on my side (yes it is)

    For the SoTU 633, a basket of low hanging fruit. And some playing about in MoHo 14 an animation software torture device which has made me so Effing maaaaaaad at times. Took all day to create the clock and about as long as the video to record the song !! Probably could have done it on the corner...

    SOTU 632 "I'LL SEE YOU IN MY DREAMS"

    Some ezdrummer, some synth pad, piano and a bari guilelelele . Thats an easy word to start spelling and a difficult one to stop !! My take on Blondie's "Dreaming" from "Eat to the Beat" 1979. Never ever did I think I would play a Blondie song, and never on a uke !!

    SOTU 632 "I'LL SEE YOU IN MY DREAMS"

    Why "Snørij Snørænsøn's Electric Nightmare" ? Well, why not ?Had to call it something. Bit of a change of pace and genre for me...and I like it !! Halion Sonic within Steinberg Cubase 13 AI Elements provides the voices via pads and lead synth sounds, played on my yammy p155, EZdrummer the beat...

    Season 631: I Mist You

    One of George Formby's little ditties. On a new (to me) Uke Banjo. I struggled with that previous "thing" of mine for 50 years before realising that the action was far too high, the neck was far too narrow...and it had a very dull and thuddy tone...sigh. I'm afraid that is what happens when...

    12 Bar Blues

    Its the sevenths that give the "bluesy" sound so try to alternate between Major and dominant 7ths, Especially on the turnaround, the little end pieces before the call and response. Blues isn,t "academic" music, its feel and heart and soul. So sometimes the rules go out the window of the woodshed.

    Season of the 'Ukulele (SOTU) 629 - Season of the Cuckoo'lele

    SOTU 629 Cuckoo'lele (and a little geetar) "Folsom Prison Blues" I struggled with whether or not this fitted the brief. I think it does, then doubts assail me and then I don't. Its a Blues (even if only nominally) ,its about a tough time, there are allusions to mental anguish "those people...

    Season of the 'Ukulele (SOTU) 629 - Season of the Cuckoo'lele

    Dear gods, Jane bluddy Austen. I remember we did "Persuasion" for one of our books at "A" Level. I hated it....and I read Northanger Abbey as well ,because they are published together....can't recall a word. Now, Gulliver's Travels , brillopads all four books. Houyhnhnm and Yahoos ...houyhnhnm...

    Season of the 'Ukulele (SOTU) 629 - Season of the Cuckoo'lele

    This started as a bit of daftness whilst testing two microphones . Then I thought that this would fit the season as both Sellers and Milligan suffered from significant mental health issues, even though those issues were probably in some part, what made them so brilliant and fantastic. Sellers...
