I am contemplating buying a ukelele and having a go on that young George was quite handy on one of those which I think is why Joe Brown played one at the memorial gig for George - he did I'll See You In My Dreams - very moving.
Topic Hollywood Female Actor You Would Like To Marry
18 Jun 2013 04:41
I think you can't answer this question until you actually meet the person you admire from afar because the nature of their profession may hide their real personality they might not be brain dead self seeking greedy bitches like they appear to be with their fixation with image and expensive things. Perhaps if you asked which actress you would like to have a date with would be a better question.

Count me in as #3 for the piano-kids. I started extremely early as a child, went through the Royal Conservatory with grades and exams every year and then gave it up in my early teens. I also had an 'evil' piano teacher in my last two years playing (seems to be a lot of them going around!) - it made me dread lessons. As well, my schedule growing up was jam packed with extracurricular activities and lessons and I thought it was time to start paring things down and concentrating on just one or two disciplines in my teens. Piano was a casualty of those decisions.
In school though - because they make you play an instrument and piano was not available, I also dabbled in the flute. I remember being sick at the time of the year they assigned instruments based on every kid's wish-list. When I returned to school I found out I was stuck with the one nobody wanted - the French horn. Aaack! I tried to make a go of it, but my teacher eventually felt sorry for me trying to lug this monster instrument home. It was wayyy too big for me. He made an exception and found a flute for me to switch over to. Much better.
The guitar is still something I'd love to try to pick up sometime. And I've always had a strange yearning for the cello. Maybe one day.
I am totally jealous of the opportunities you got. When I was at school music lessons were the music teacher teaching us the rudiments of sheet music but the only instrument in sight was the piano he played to illustrate the theory. Years later I taught myself rock guitar and now music is my main reason for existence. But I always regret not starting earlier and with a good grounding in theory. I have managed to make my living out of it and still play regularly now but feel that many of my shortcomings would have been helped with an earlier and more formal approach. I can read music but not sight read and can hold my own with a lot of good players, jam on bass or guitar and even write my own stuff but I always regret not learning to play at 4 or something instead of in my mid 20's.
Topic What is the number one thing about guys that baffles you?
18 Jun 2013 04:12
The older I get the less patience I have with stereo types and the sex war. I have no time to waste hiding my emotions under a front of bravado or with some preconceived way of behaviour ''men do this or women do that'' etc - if this is the case (and I have my doubts about the natural side of these things - there are plenty of women tougher than me) then the war is pointless as we didn't make ourselves one gender or the other as it was due to some biological bingo game. However having said that the only way to behave is the good old cliche listen discuss and compromise and I feel that is irrespective of our dangly bits. If I want to cry I do but the same goes for laughter.
Topic Teasing At Work
17 Jun 2013 09:35
Hey guys so I'm a cashier at a bulk store where we are able to wear anything we like except for a vest. I love wearing kinda low cut tops and tight pants jus to tease the customers and my bosses ;-) so my question is, have you ever been tempted like that before by a cashier? Or am I a minority on this lol
When you say ''vest'' do you mean the male undergarment currently back in vogue which is a piece of cotton with shoulder straps or are you referring to a cloth garment sometimes worn as part of a 3 piece suit and called a waistcoat in the UK which buttons down the front and is sleeveless?
Topic Teasing At Work
17 Jun 2013 09:27
Most things that are considered to be work like admin/shop work/Call Centre etc are totally boring after about 2 weeks, so a bit of light relief in the form of teasing clothing style is just the thing. In fact in all my experiences at straight jobs the main theme of conversations was this. The other theme was football (soccer for our US readers) and that would be when I would drift off and actually do some work.

Chivalry does exist but not to it's full extent anymore, a guy may well hold a door open for you but I doubt anyone will find a guy to lay down his coat in a puddle for you.
I would if it was Elizabeth II and the puddle covered a huge 4 foot deep hole. No doubt I would suffer the same fate as my predecessor with Elizabeth I.

Topic Guys, what kind of perfume or shower gel is turning you on?
17 Jun 2013 08:27
There's a wonderful perfume but I don't know the name of it. I've been smelling it for about 40 years and come across it at periodic intervals so it must be still popular. I always smell it on some woman passing me on the street or on a bus or something and don't really want to run up to a total stranger (we're British you know) and say ''Wow what a great perfume you have on. What's it called?'' I could get arrested or something - especially dangerous if I was wearing a long macintosh. I suppose I could haunt perfume counters in stores and try them all out but I'm sure WellMadeMale wouldn't approve of that one and besides - it probably smells different without a body to enhance it. Heh! Heh! No I'll probaby die never knowing its name like some haunting tune that you recognise but don't know the name of to go and listen more regularly but it always move you. There must be some sort of universal law about these things.

We seem to be saying that chivalry is some sort of act that allows for politeness etc related to the female sex. Surely if you are going to behave in a special way for someone you care for then that must cut both ways. If it only applies to behaviour regarding males behaviour to females then some sort of distinction is being made and that is where it becomes a sexist gesture in my opinion. My current partner is taller than me so she can reach for the higher article easier than I can. It would be over the top if I fetched a step ladder when she could just reach up and get it. I'm not saying have no consideration but the gender issue should be irrelevant. If we are saying that people are ruder generally speaking OK I would maybe agree with that with reservation as I find in many ways the current time makes a lot of allowances that previous times were intolerant and prejudicial about.
16 Jun 2013 03:05
I absolutely adore women but feel that treating them like fragile creatures who can't open doors or move chairs is a form of a patronising insult. However politeness and consideration should be genderless and applied to all - I've held many a door open for a guy/girl walking close behind me. It's sort of embarrassing to write this as it all seems a bit obvious and even as I write I feel as if I'm being a bit twee and stating the obvious. (Philip Sidney the perfect Renaissance man during his famous bit of chivalry told them to give the water to a man after all even then).
Topic Vasectomy / The Snip - who's had it?
14 Jun 2013 06:30
I swelled up and could not walk about for about 3 days. For a long time afterwards I had a sort of burning sensation in my balls during sex but eventually it went away, (it wasn't necessarily a negative feeling just different). I have absolutely no regrets and would do it again. I feel the choice of who to be thus changed should be the man rather than the woman as it is a relatively minor operation.

Topic Do girls like to talk dirty during sex?
14 Jun 2013 02:04
For sure! After yes of phone sex with a long distance relationship, I am a master at dirty talking and basically setting up a story or scene. I also like to talk dirty to myself with I am alone, just masterbating...it really adds to the experience. Sex can fulfill the sense of touch, sense of emotion, sense of taste, sense of smell, sense of sight, and with a little dirty talking can fulfill our sense of hearing...an all around experience!
MMM totally agree with this.

Topic 101 Best Written Shows Ever...how many did you watch or enjoy?
13 Jun 2013 10:33
I thought this question was about which were the best written shows not necessarily which shows you personally liked which may or may not be the same thing. I have great admiration for a number of US writers Paul Simon in particular and you can see his influence in spin off shows like the Odd Couple. To have the skill and depth of feeling to illustrate humourously the problems of two conflicting personalities requires an impressive talent. Or Joseph Heller who's style in my opinion highly influenced Richard Hooker who wrote MASH whereby the ideals of the 60's are presented through the brilliant Grouch Marxesque one liners of Haweye Pierce ''Oh when the war is finished around here they'll take it on the road. '' - Where war is compared to a fabricated money making theatrical exercise. I therefore feel that such an issue requires more than a ''hit parade'' reaction and hope I have gone some little way in illustrating that.
Topic Need a mans point of view, (football and concussions)

As a parent I do sympathize with your worry but as your son is over 16 aren't all those sort of decisions up to him? When I was his age I was a member of the RAF and my parents had no control over my sporting activities, (even though most of my time was spent avoiding such physical exertion.) or health issues for example they couldn't stop me smoking.
Topic It’s OK in Texas to shoot a woman for refusing to have sex! You're within the law.
13 Jun 2013 09:31
I believe that there is a law in the Isle of Man that is yet to be repealed that says Scotsmen wearing a kilt can be shot on sight. However I don't think you'd get away with it, (yes of course I mean wearing the kilt). There is also another law and I think it's still active and in use where criminals can receive corporal punishment for certain crimes.
n.b for those who are unsure of where the Isle of Man is it is a small island between Ireland and England more or less on a level with Liverpool. It has semi independence from the U.K. and is famous for motor bike racing, fairy tales and cats with no tails. It is a lovely place covered in fir trees with really nice beaches and a sort of attractive Edwardian lady gone to seed atmosphere.
Topic Celibacy and ready to be sexed up again
13 Jun 2013 01:02
Usually it's the unexpected. When I am not looking for anyone or not feeling desperate that's when I meet somebody. My advice would be to relax about it and not focus on it just go with the flow and something will happen. As for which mode to practise I feel the same way about that - whatever presents itself. Of course you have to be in circulation but I mean not to concentrate so hard on it. There is no best place more like best situation - something like in a supermarket and you ask someone about their opinion on some daft product or something and that can lead elsewhere - but the point is the initial contact is genuine - a moment of mutual camaraderie if you like.
Topic Horror genre has been killed
12 Jun 2013 08:33
Most so called horror movies aren't really frightening just nauseating with graphic detail like watching some surgery in a documentary. I like some of the old gothic style ones but strictly for laughs with outrageous references like ''The Prince of Darkness.'' (good name for a band). Since the cold sweats of the lived through small hours of my divorce no piece of film can really frighten me ever again. I like spoof horror and can visualize a scene where the horrible thingy - werewolf or whatever is getting ever closer and the victim is in a car but instead of frantically failing to start the engine she can't get her seat belt fastened. :)
