Maybe the forum wants a rest. Does it get a 15 minute break to go out and smoke a cigarette or surf the net or go and put its feet up every 8 hours?

The day isn't over in your part of the world so there's still 5- 6hrs till forum is usually active. But yes, it's very quite today. Any chance that yesterday's event went as amazing for @Ahhh Girl as to warrant some time off the forum for her to realize it wasn't a #9 Dream? Perhaps she was treated to an exclusive pic with Macca?

It really has been. I'm not listening to music right now, so I can't even use that as an excuse to post. Nor am I watching any good shows, nor have I had any interesting dreams lately, nor am I eating any... OH WAIT... be right back.

With this post, I will have the same post count as mithveaen. Once it is on the top ten list I wonder if she will be above or below me when we have the same post count.

I say in speeches that a plausible mission of artists is to make people appreciate being alive at least a little bit. I am then asked if I know of any artists who pulled that off. I reply, 'The Beatles did'.

Since One Direction and Harry Styles came up, I need to mention this because it always blows my mind.  I'm sorry if I mentioned it before I can't remember...

 

Does anyone else see the resemblance with this guy to a young Mick Jagger?!

Here are one million examples:

Not a fan of the band (not my style, no pun intended) but Harry is a handsome young man, I must say!  It seems so weird being attracted to a guy that was born before the 1950's…  a-hard-days-night-paul-4

There is no defeating the owls - Simon's efforts are futile.

Yeah that kid upthread does bear a resemblance to Mick in some of those pics. My niece used to love One Direction, but I believe she has now switched allegiances. The word is she is now into something called 5 Seconds of Summer.

Every generation has their boy star or boy band. When I was a pre-teen, the girls went nuts over Bobby Sherman. Shows my age!

I noticed that too, about Harry Styles. He is a goodlooking guy. Most of One Direction are IMO, except for that one guy.

In 40 minutes and 13 seconds I turned this:

Into this:

Why? Because I can. And because I've wanted to build a guitar for a few years. (Edit: and this is good preparation for that.) The first time I took my guitar apart was when I was thinking about building like two years ago. Then though, I didn't really think about actually doing the woodworking/painting myself, I wanted to buy a neck, body, and the smaller parts online and then assemble it. That's not really building a guitar, and ends up being just as, if not more, expensive than a pre-made guitar.

Now I want to see if I can go from wood to guitar. But it'll be a while 'til I can get together money for tools and materials. Still seems like a fun project though!

Which do you Forumpudlians think would be a cooler build? A Strat style or a Les Paul style? Les Paul is harder as it generally needs an extra wood layer on top, but I have a Strat.
