Music for the Masses

Music, books, movies, TV, games, hobbies, food, and potent potables. And forum games! Pour a drink, put on your smoking jacket, light a pipe (of whatever), and settle in.

My old grandad passed on today. 94 years old, played for the equivalent of the NZ national cricket team in WW2 (air force), stubborn and staying in his own home to the last. The latter was real stupid old man stuff.

Something lonesome is appropriate. The country musician who popularised that term was really onto something.

Thanks dudes.

I've probably posted this before, but it's a really good country-boogie mix:

Belated condolences, db. Sounds like an interesting guy. Did you get to see him a lot?
