I pop in occasionally but its like stepping on the corpses of yesterday's enthusiasm. Sadly whilst my brain remains razor sharp, Cabo has got old, boring, slightly senile and become a bit of a fart.

It is quite fascinating how so many of the people who used to post regularly here and elsewhere have simply disappeared from the internet as far as Django and Gypsy Jazz is concerned. Some of them seemed to be deeply interested in the music but many were those who read a couple of CD covers and suddenly knew everything about it. :wink: The truth is that most people are very faddy and just pop in and out of musical styles. :roll: .... But regardless of these insubstantive losers and malcontents - DJANGO LIVES!!! :D

Teddy!

I know what you mean. You will be pleased to know down here in Brighton we are keeping the flag flying. I have a few really nice regular gigs going on. I am sure you are aware that we have some great up and coming players in the u.k now awhom i have down here often aswell as some of the european lot. The scene is far from dead...it just smells funny(F.Z) you are right though...Hepbir has lost it....he can barely string a sentence together these days, he also wears a nappy. All very sad :cry:

Cabo's carers wheeled him out to Sutton Coldfield last week and he was in good spirits despite clearly not knowing what day it was.

His playing was in fine form as well, but your comment would certainly explain the surprisingly generous cut of his trousers.

He actually left school without being able to work that out on his own.

Never get close to him late in the day when he's been wearing the same nappy since breakfast.

I am currently on my 400th attempt to get it published. So it's going pretty well thanks. :roll:

We should not be too negative about the way the Hot Club forum has gone because it is now a fantastic source for cheap kitchens - assuming. of course, you are happy to give some guy in Kazakhstan your credit card details.

I just came close to losing my lunch.

I strongly advise everyone here to buy all their fitted kitchens from the Hot Club Forum.

Do you lot think that my latest venture in selling kitchens online is misdirected? I was hoping to take advantage of those among you who like a bit of quality wood.
Anyway it was Cabbo's idea after his phone porn enterprise went turtle when his team of Women's Institute ladies refused to work for less than £2.50 a shot.
A computer lets you make more mistakes faster than any invention in human history, with the possible exceptions of handguns and tequila.

I used to lurk around these boards a few years back but I'm sooo faddy I've moved on elsewhere.

However a couple of dickheads in South Wales have asked me for lessons, therefore forcing me to pick up the guitar again. Bastards.

From here on I don't know what will happen?!?
