    They did used to put The Great Escape on at Christmas a lot. Seems a bit odd now you think about it. p.s. Does Enter the Dragon count as a Christmas Movie?

    Project Fitness, Group effort? Whose up for it?

    That looks good. From my own experience and research I'd be careful of the V-ups. Like sit-ups it can be very easy to strain your neck if you don't get them exactly right. I liked reverse situps were you lay on the ground and just lift your legs up.

    Same thing here. We used to have three independent music shops in the city now only one.

    Stu's Pedal Building Adventures...

    One day I might invest in a proper power supply instead of the multi-voltage wall wart and daisy chain cable I'm currently using. - one day. I thought of two markets. Cheapskates like me who make do with whatever power supply they've got. They propbaly wouldn't buy anything extra anyway...

    Actually this together with corroded strings probably does point to it having been on a boat or at least by the seaside for some time.

    Stu's Pedal Building Adventures...

    I was thinking about this. Would it be worth making a power cleaner block to filter noise and possibly prevent voltage spikes for those of us who don't have a nice clean power supply? Just a 9v-in on one side and 9v(clean)-out on the other. Would the cost be worth it or would it be cheaper to...

    Nice. The white powdery surface could be aluminium oxide but you would usually only see that if it had been kept in a corrosive atmosphere. Was it owned by a lighthouse keeper?

    Watched Chaos with Jason Statham and Wesley Snipes this weekend. Imagine that a millionaire believes his 13 year old son to be a genius scriptwriter and pays to get a film made, money no object. It's like that.

    Making Do - How have folks gotten by on a tight budget?

    I think there is a whole new thread here :)

    What put a smile on your face today?

    Before Christmas I had a weird fracture in my knee. It's called and insufficiency fracture and is caused by some breakdown in the strength of the bone resulting in cracking from ordinary use. The Doc said I needed to keep the weight off for six months and it would repair itself. Six months later...

    Making Do - How have folks gotten by on a tight budget?

    For the first 35 years of my guitar playing I only had an old EKO jumbo accoustic with a slightly warped neck. It had belonged to my guitar teacher/youth club leader and he sold to me for £40 to learn on. The youth club had a band which I played in on a borrowed bass+amp - I'm not sure how I did...

    Inexpensive reverb pedal

    I bet Joyo do a thing. Never tried them but people rate their other pedals for value for money.

    David Gilmour’s Black Strat (and others) up for auction...

    I'm a bit confused by 'The XLR jack was also removed during the time it was owned by the star.'
