Christ, I struggle to get 10 of my closest mates organised enough to appear in the same room at the same time, unless there is free grog involved. 50 or 60 distant acquaintances meeting in the foyer of a movie theatre to sing and dance would just be a bridge too far.

So I don't know when this trend took hold but there is an apparent recent selection of very lavish and beautiful wedding/engagement cards. Some are even so beautifully gilded that they come with a protective card to place over then before you slide them into the envelope. Today my beautiful new bride and I went through so many beautiful cards from the wedding. I was a great weekend.

So, those of you in the Great Lakes region of the United States: What's on your bucket list of things to do before you die in the big storm this weekend?

The doomsdayers are out in full force, buying up all the bottled water at the grocery stores, standing in line to stock up on essentials.

What a bunch of f***ing idiots.

Hey Dude, you made it bad
Take a thread and make it better
Remember to let it into your heart
Then you can start to make it better

Hey Dude, don't be afraid
You were made to go out and not return
The minute you let her under your skin
Then you begin to make it your turn

And anytime you feel the pain, hey Dude, remember
Don't carry the world upon your shoulders
For well you know that it's thiny veiled who plays it bad
By making his world a little colder
Nah nah nah nah nah nah nah nah nah

Hey Dude...

His last few threads had actually lead to some interesting conversations.

He may not have broken any rules, as such, but he certainly contravened the spirit of the place. Not for the first time, it wasn't broken but he fixed it.

And he accused me of pomposity. Moi!!

I found it entertaining when Hey Dude played Advocacy for the Devil. But his political rhetoric worried me because I see this place as a safe haven from all that.

I had no real problem with him as a drummer. He spoke his mind, and I appreciate what he had to say about drums and drumming. His philosophy didn't interest me though and he was a bit abrasive with his general remarks about how a forum should operate. Who should post what where and what should or should not be in this forum. I mean c'mon. Who died and made him king? He has a right to speak his mind, and even if it crosses the line, we don't have to react with emotion because that's what he wants to have happen. It's straight out of a political playbook IMHO.

Wow, I missed what happened. Besides the Andy/GURU thread, for the most part I thought a lot of what he said was reasonable and done appropriately, as not to be blatantly offensive. But I did often wonder if he is the guy that finds an issue with everything? Like if someone buys a new car and shows him, will he say "nice car, but I really can't stand the color"?

I did find some of his topics quite interesting.

Ah, found "the thread."

What a rear end.

Too bad, because he was starting to come around with some interesting topics. But he apparently can't help himself from being a complete Donkey named Jack to people for no apparent reason. I can't say I understand why someone would attack someone they don't know online without provocation.

Mate, he was a fight looking for a place to pick it. Didn't take much to set him off at all and he could be as abrasive as a pair of hessian undies when he got the bit between his teeth.

Still, sorry to see him go as I had no personal issue with him, but it does look like a few guys are trying to make him into some sort of a martyr in that thread. He wasn't banned. Not by a long shot. He enquired where the door was and Grunter duly showed him. Ask and ye shall receive. No harm, no foul by anyone but himself. I hope that little fact doesn't get lost along the way.

Yup Jules. It may save confusion if they change his tag from Banned to Retired - or Took Bat and Ball and Went Home. Another option: Not Actually a Troll.

Or how about Rejected Monarch, since he was always telling people what they should be doing? (with a whole 4 years music experience)

Could we just put the tag "thinly veiled" ?

Haga, not at all: I waited for somebody better than me to reply, but they didn't. Obviously I didn't wait long enough.

How was it not blindingly apparent that this is a person who has become quite special to members of this forum, members who have watched her abilities as a drummer virtually unfold before our very eyes? How could it be that the clod didn't know enough to keep his mouth shut?

I remember this guy, and I have no pity for him. In attacking Mary, he attacked the other members of this forum who have taken a special interest in Mary's development as a musician. He's done this sort of thing before. So I say good riddance.

It doesn't fit. As official 'Glen Spotter,' I can happily say that I really don't think Shemp was Sticks. Equally clueless, mind.

Then maybe it's the Saturns that do it to you. Something in the varnish that infects your mind...? The badges... the huge, shiny badges...

No, my name by deed poll would be Scott Hughson. Alternatively 'Weakling Child' - but that's all a big secret (that is entirely irrelevant). Haga!

Call it 'gut feeling' (I watch too many police procedurals) but Glen gives himself away within two posts, usually. There's a pattern and a particular phrasing of his sentences that is easy to spot!

The Saturn badges joke is over a year old and everyone seems to get along with it. Please use the Private Message function to the mods to post any grievances. We don't want to air our laundry in public.

Seems like the last many posts on this page have been people airing their grievances. Are only certain people alowed to do this? Just because a joke is accepted by a certain group of people, does not make the joke acceptable!

Well I won't spend any more time debating and old joke and who may be offended. As I said, hang around a while, and I'm sure you will fit it. But if you feel you don't we thank you for your time.
