Re: Political Coverage By the Media in Our Country - PART TWO

...because they're gay. When one runs a business, one joins the laws governing businesses. It is because of what is on the cake - not because they are gay. If a non-gay person asked the same thing they would still be refused. How is it not different to asking a Jewish or Islamic baker for a cake wi...

Re: Political Coverage By the Media in Our Country - PART TWO

"but not immoral." Which morality? Should a Muslim butcher be forced to provide pork sausages? An Afro-American baker a KKK celebration cake? A Jewish baker a holocaust cake? Strawman. The point is one can't refuse to provide a normal cake because they're gay. Similarly, a photographer can refuse a...

Re: Favorite Strings?

I use Ernie Ball Cobalt Super Slinky Flatwounds (#2814 Pink) on my StingRay. Tried a set. Immediately bought 10 more. Did any break? I haven't had any break so far, so I'm fairly confident mine aren't from a bad batch. I use Ernie Ball Cobalt Super Slinky Flatwounds (#2814 Pink) on my StingRay. Tri...

Re: Suitable CLOTHES for hot weather/outdoor gigs

you're being paid to entertain , not to be comfortable These two are indivisible. If I'm not comfortable, I'm not playing. It's never actually happened, because, well, there's no need for it. Portable gazebos and fans are easy to buy and bring, if you happen to be playing at a venue that is backwar...

Re: What "easy" songs are busting your chops?

Hands to Yourself and Summer of 69. Everytime I re-visit, I get to the 113th variation of the Bassline and just give up...it's too much work for what's supposed to be a "simple" song.

Re: Cricket 2017/2018

I'm new to Cricket, so can ask some spectacularly dim questions of my cricketing mates. Secretly they love the opportunity to show off their vast knowledge which, as you know, for Aussies, is all-encompassing. I still haven't had an answer to this one, though: We were discussing the pink ball and th...

Re: Cricket 2017/2018

Got tickets to the first three days in Adelaide. Really looking forward to the first day/night Ashes. I don't envy anybody trying to get accommodation now, it's totally bonkers. I booked ours a year ago and managed to find somewhere that hadn't updated their calendar yet, so were still charging stan...
