Why isn't there a sarcasm font?

That is horrifying should have done him for attempted murder!

Got home this evening to find that one of my cousins has been diagnosed with that petty, ugly disease cancer. Don't know anything more than that it's big and in his chest. He's only 22
Over thinking, over analyzing separates the body from the mind. Withering my intuition, missing opportunities and I must feed my will to feel my moment drawing way outside the lines.

Sorry to hear that terrible news Richard.

I'm starting to see everything that's happened to me over the last 9 months as a test of character, and I think I'm doing quite well.

Wendy's 48 year old brother Keith had an accident at work this morning, and has badly damaged his thumb. They said if he'd have been closer to retirement age, they'd have probably amputated it, but have give him some painkillers and anti biotics, and will get the specialist to see him on monday.

Upset of today and last night was over doing - it on the dackery's and blowing chunks
as I lie on the carpet of that most prestigious of venues ,'Ronnie Scotts',... :-[ :-[ :-[

I think I may have put the 'rock  'n' roll 'into jazz !

Billy Cobham was NOT amused, ( I did however get a photo of myself with him and also
he kindly signed a Mahavishnu Orchestra album  8) 8) 8) ).

Thank heavens that most stalwart of TNMSers and good friend 'Bisto' was at hand to
care for my ailing situation,..   Bloody ace gig, all the same,...  8) 8) 8) 8) 8) 8)

OPUS TIDE's debut album 'OPEN THE GATES' available soon,... BUY - IT ,.. It's the LAW !

The lyrics to that fine song.. The Stars Look Down might mean a bit more to you lately Richard? :-\
'A modern day warrior mean mean stride'

It was indeed...in fact I'd go so far as to say it was the best musical performance I've seen in my 49 years.... simply wonderful to behold in such an intimate and sophisticated venue and at such close quarters. I fancy either one of us could have played keyboards without leaning over from our table.
well....I say play.....hmmm

In defence of the Bearded Crusader we were both already very well lubricated before the Daiquaries arrived and then, as you do, we had far too many for our own good. Luckily for me I had the foresight to develop a substantial layer of protective winter blubber which saved me from joining Dan in adding a splash more colour to the evening. Comparitively speaking, he is built like the proverbial racing greyhound to my toothless walrus. Mixing drinks the way we did is never a good idea and despite him having the soul of a bon vivant and spirit of Lord Flashheart too much excess is likely to render him Rowley Birkin QC on the odd occassion..... to be honest I'm amazed it doesn't happen more frequently!

I think he might have to go back incognito for the next few years until the memory (and carpet stain) fades. When you look like Billy Gibbons in medieval smart/casual finery you don't exactly blend in with us 'normal' looking stiffs....besides which we did rather draw attention to ourselves throughout the evening due to our frequent and rather too enthusiastic displays of appreciation, however well deserved. The audience were obviously far too cultured, cool and so......ber....spoiled by years of watching superlative musicians chucking out impossibly good sets like confetti as, much to my bewilderment and disgust, the response veered from mild enthusiasm to warm appreciation.  Well I'm sorry, I may be a  Metalhead rather than Jazzhead and I was squiffier than good taste and decorum allows in such a venarable and revered establishment but I know an amazing gig when I see one! I have never seen such an incredible display of musicianship....hypnotic, latin and carribean rythms, time changes galore, fluid, syncopated, smooth and yet tight as a gnat's chuff. Add to that an unparralled view and crystal clear sound, each instrument perfectly separated and distinct yet blending together perfectly ....no feedback or distortion...a seemingly effortless union of 6 musicians at the top of their game...imagine the best of Mahavishnu, Weather Report, Return To Forever and Brand X with a hint of Santana and Tommy Bolin thrown in and you're almost there. The only thing that could have made this a perfect 10 for me would have been a real brass section instead of keys but that would be the meanest of quibbles! Honestly the playing was on another level...... as if they were but a conduit for the Gods....there was not a beat missed nor a note misplaced or superfluous and everyone played in perfect harmonious synchronicity.......with Cobham completely mesmerizing and totally locked into the groove baby....it was a thing of surpassing beauty..... and the thought occured that should Death take me now I would have no grounds to complain.....Sheer and utter bliss I shit you not! 9.95/10
