So, rather than saying "I'm headed out tonight, wh's up for it" - instead, think about someplace you think is fun and make an event two or three weeks from now.
ok I will, on social events with 2 weeks anticipation, and we can have LOOOOOADS OF FUNNNN!

This is rather a lot of vemon directed to somebody who has only posted 69 times and just posted what they chose to do at the weekend....we can choose not to spend our weekends the same way, but the personal attacks and the pop-analysis seem a touch mean to me

OP - just be careful please

There's a French expression "Qui cherche, trouve".
In other words you go looking for trouble you find it.

Anyway Caviarchips...what's your problem? What did the OP want us to do? Congratulate her for being such a (fill in the blanks)? If you post things like that on an open internet forum you are going to have to take the rough with the smooth. If she can deal with someone harassing her on the Rue de Berne, I am sure she won't break a sweat here....

No, true, but quoting from her website and talking about her network or lack of it goes beyond questioning the choice of her leisure time IMO - it feels a little snide to me.

But maybe you all know something that I don't

Anyway - she's big enough to stick up for herself I suppose

Oh, bugger....if I only came across as being snide I must be losing my touch. I was actually aiming for contempt....

Re: Went to Paquis last night

Nice to see the thread is being modded by our membership..

To the OP, no harm meant, but advertising muzzak can be done a lot better. And I know it since I have been in the biz for ages. You also do not want to see certain type of fans in your audience, or limit them to an absolute minimum. Unless you have a chaperon sorted, every gig, for your way home.

Cmon, you can do so much betters.

Ah MC, come on! Don't be so hard on her..... Maybe her capacities are reaching their limits! Maybe this is HER best!

We should embrace and accept everyone the way they are.

Hahahah, facetious! Well, yeah..

Naw, I am deformed. I teach. I push for performance. To hell with woodoomagic and hippie theories on acceptance.

Anyways. I could do with a hot female guitarist, rhythm guitar, at least. Don't tell anyone, though And only if she is willing to wear odd outfits.

Aww....5ft4? It's ok. I don't want to be taller. And intimidate men even more.

Hey, aren't we derailing?

I think if there is an EF event, a band playing for EF crowds, even in our neck of the woods people would show up. No?

Re: Went to Paquis last night

Ah, girls just wanna have innocent fun. It's just the stupid guys who don't get it.

But please do be careful. Especially when drinking green beer next weekend.
