I follow Ed Friedland on Facebook. He made a comment about his gig photos only getting 40 likes and his gear photos got 750 likes.
Ed tours with the Grammy winning country band The Mavericks, which is why he'd like his gig pics to get more likes. Obviously he's more proud of that than his gear reviews :yep

+1 for Ed and his gear reviews.
I loved the one he did of the Steve Harris P Bass.
Maybe he's a bit stuck in the mold of being known for a gear review guy and people arent really interested in his music ??
I personally haven't looked into it. I get the impression its not something I'd be into.

Really enjoyed the way the Matilda's played football.
Really didn't enjoy the Brazilian's refusal to shake hands afterward last night.

yeah it was pretty childish

the Brazillians are not used to losing at football

they had better get used to losing, at least when they play the Matildas, sorry, the MIGHTY MATILDAS.

our men's team is gonna sook big time when the Matildas win a world cup hehe while they are still trying to play with three at the back

ANGE, how much more evidence do you need that 3 at the back doesn't work for teams with less than three good defenders.....?

Seriously! Is this it? Two idiots with really big bombs calling one another names. When does the world tell them both to shut up before a minimum million people die on the Korean peninsula?

^i think if one researches NK and their impudent behaviour through the last 3 Kim's that this problem is 1) not an easy one to solve, and 2) if someone doesn't do something NK WILL launch a nuclear warhead

Or maybe they'll just keep talking shit just like they have been for the last 50 years. I don't know why this lot of trash talk is any different to the last 50 years of trash talk .... oh wait yes I do, the media is reporting it now.

Pretty much - the attention from Trump has escalated things, forcing Kim to accelerate whatever missile program was running, in order to save his own skin. Whatever the media reports, NK has made mainly rational decisions so far. Can't say that about the USA in the past 20 years.


Well the AFL grand final is now upon us. So far the finals have given us only a single even contest, every other game has been a lopsided thrashing. (yawn) Hopefully the final bucks the trend....

If you follow NK's progress and latest tests... they're doing much more than sledging...

Up until recently, NK would "agree" to conditions in exchange for aid and other perks... but they never kept their end of the bargain and no one was able to enforce it, because China continues to use NK...

I'm telling you, this is scary ... Obama even warned Trump that NK would be one of his toughest challenges as president , so much so that Obama is reportedly forming an international think tank in Chicago to address NK and the globally refugee crisis specifically

That's why I say the (whole) world should tell both of them to just shut up. That is, not take either side- condemn them both. I know it won't happen and suspect this will end very badly. I was just having a rant.
