Monday Preview

So it's another Monday, and it's back to me.  It sounds like a lot of Team Monday is working on Defensive Terrain, but we've got some treats coming up.  

A couple of weeks I got a suggestion of "Manic Monday" for a vid, but I went with another Bangle tune instead.  Hazy Shade of Winter is a much better song IMHO, plus I can actually play this riff on Sadie.  Therefore in honour of the blast of winter that our colleagues to the South East of Curtland are experiencing...




Guitar junkies take note of the very nice Gretsch Hollow body playing lead, and the iconic Rickenbacker 12 string on rhythm.  The Rickenbacker is a dream guitar I wish I had, even if my ham fisted fingers would have trouble with the busy fretboard.  Of course I wish I had the legs to carry off that black miniskirt too...

And here's a sneak preview of upcoming posts
  • Two treats from AnneO'L
  • Frostgrave (seems appropriate) and historical posts from AdamC,
  • Killer robots,
  • Pulp civilians, and
  • Historical offerings from Miles, unless he drew the short straw at his rumoured Donner Party theme neighbourhood BBQ this weekend. 
And I need to be off to the deep dank basement to work on my defensive terrain....

  4. I am happy to report that I am alive and well into day three of snowbound isolation. I have submitted a handful of entries for your enjoyment. Still deeply disappointed at no sightings of Mammoths despite the weatherman's predictions of a "Mammoth Snow Storm".

    1. Good to hear you're doing good in the snow-bound wilderness, Miles! Hang in there, and watch out for those those mammoths - they're masters of disguise...

    4. I'll stick to places where people know how to handle winter if I have to deal with snow. I have survived the worst winter snow storm in UK memory and it was laughable but dangerous. I believe it was 1977, better know as the winter of discontent.

    5. Peter - that really doesn't surprise me. I don't think we get enough of any type of (even semi-) extreme weather to know how to deal with any of it! So we're equally lost in lots of rain, snowstorms and very hot weather.

    6. Miles, according to Glenn Cook's Garrett files, aren't mammoths followed by saber tithed toogers,er, saber toothed tiggers er big growly things with fangs! ;)

    1. I'll try to clean the place up a bit for you this time Tamsin, but really this crew is hopeless on the domestic chores.
