BRI'S CHOICES FOR WINNERS IN THE GUITAR PLAYING COMPETITION
- HONOURABLE MENTION
Direct link

!!! ANNOUNCING WINNER SOON !!!
NOW ANNOUNCED HERE

OK.

This was hard, Folks. Everybody had something to offer … good work, practice, precision and sounds.

Kinda upsetting that everybody can't win, because it’s all good.

But … OK …

[ See the Original entries HERE : https://youtu.be/nWw-_TpsYto ]

I have to name an honorable mention …

Mia - Brighton Rock

Mia playing
Mia playing 'Brighton Rock'


Mia is evidently pretty young, but has technique and flair and some courage, I’d say. The Brighton Rock thing is great fun to do - with the double delay … but it’s not quite as easy as it looks. Most people find it gets out of hand quite easily.

What I like about Mia here is she’s not copying any of my performances at all … she’s got used to the technique and is doing her own thing. She’s feeling it out as she goes … and she never falters to wait for the catch-up. She also has given this some shape - even in this short clip you can feel the intensity building and ebbing according to how she’s feeling it. Love it.

Had to give this honorable mention. WELL DONE.

VICTORIAN GEMS - A MAGIC CHRISTMAS BOX
Direct link

Brian May with Victorian Gems


Victorian Gems is a magic box, containing the key to a kind of virtual reality that drove our Victorian ancestors wild.

When you experience it, you’ll understand why ! This 3-D starter kit will give more lasting joy than an X-Box !

Looking through the stereoscope, you will see an astonishingly realistic other world - it’s as if you could reach through the window and touch these subjects.

Once the door of true stereoscopic 3-D viewing is opened up, many people find they are hooked for life.

This package contains an OWL - the 21st century’s most celebrated stereoscopic viewer, plus three sets of beautifully restored original Victorian stereo views …

1) Scenes in Our Village - a glimpse into a feudal village, its inhabitants and their hopes and dreams,

2) Diableries - astounding scenes of mischievous 19th century skeletons and devils with glowing eyes.

3) Poor Man’s Picture Gallery - stereoscopic gems mirroring the greatest paintings of Victorian times.

You’ll also find a booklet explaining the history and theory of stereoscopy, including advice on how to take and view your own 3-D views. The box itself - an OWL Nest - is a perfect permanent housing for your personal collection of stereo views.

With the introduction of the OWL Smart Phone adaptor early next year, this Victorian Gems package will enable you to view the imminent explosion of Virtual Reality material on the Internet.

So take the first step into the exciting world of OWL 3-D - make sure Victorian Gems is in YOUR Christmas stocking !!

BOMB BOMB BOMB - BOMB BOMB AGAIN...
Direct link

Bomb Bomb Bomb - Bomb Bomb again … really ? ? ??

WAKE UP, BRITAIN !!!

I believe going in to bomb indeterminate targets in Syria will be the biggest mistake Britain has ever made.

And I believe that the bringing down of Corbyn would be effectively the death of the Labour Party. I think this is their last chance to be a strong enough opposition to stand a chance of regaining power. They can keep squabbling over what percentage - what piece of the power pie - they get … but in the end, it will be a percentage of nothing. For once, the Labour Party got a leader who speaks the truth. What an opportunity to throw away. What a tragedy. Very sad. I will pray they see sense and support their leader, not because of a whip, or political leverage, but because he is the honest, decent Voice of Reason and the the voice of the majority of decent people, who do NOT want to see a senseless, ill-conceived escalation of violence in the world.

I will also pray that enough Conservatives have the courage NOT to back their leader, who is all set to follow in the footsteps of Tony Blair. Is there ANYBODY who thinks Blair was right to take us to war without sufficient reason, and without a plan to follow the destruction ? Look again at Cameron’s half-baked proposal. Does it ring any bells ? I cannot believe we can be so stupid. Well, I can pray.

Anybody listening ?

THANK YOU Stephen Fry. Brilliantly put. Read this, folks. Tell your MPs STOP IT NOW ! All becomes clear.

Clear case for bombing Syria

"THOSE WHO VOTE with Jeremy Corbyn are TERRORIST SYMPATHISERS" - Cameron. Was there ever a more despicable sentence uttered by a PM ?

YES ! Maybe the most urgent need in Britain after we stop this ridiculous bombing (please God): an honest Press.
