Pause Ponder and Play On


Eric Clapton's got nothin' on this guy. Let's see what you guys had on him...



Geddy Lee is no longer impressed by Neil Peart's drum kit.



After many long years of development, John's 12 axe guitar was a complete failure.
John is a lefty.



Dufus thinks that as far as axes go, more is better.



And our winner just couldn't get no satisfaction...



Everyone thought it would be the drugs and alcohol tht would do in Keith Richards. Turns out it was the world's longest guitar solo.

Way to go Jamie! You be hangin' with dufus this week. Congratulations. I think the first thing we have to do is find a guitar strap for that guitar. And a ladder.



If you're driving by this week be sure and click on the links and visit these guys' blogs. We've got some new players this time around and I think you'd really enjoy their stuff.

Rock on, friends.

Sorry Dufus, could you type louder? My ears (and eyes) are still ringing from the solo. In all sincerity, I'm honored to be hanging with the Dufus.

I won't string you along Jamie. I think we're all in a "chord" over your caption.

Bob and Brenda worked in the supermarket. They weren't check-out clerks. And they weren't stock-boys. Brenda sure wasn't. And they weren't employees who worked in the fish section or the deli. No. They were on the shelves.

The talked about their manufacturing processes. And they talked about the long routes in semi-trailers that brought them to this store.

One day when Brenda was commenting on their friendship she told Bob she was grateful for their amity. "Are you Tea?" said Bob, pekoe-ing her way. "I thought I was Tea". You're coffee!"

My Back Pages - November

I read five books last month bringing my year to date total to 61, well past the 50 I estimated at the beginning of the year. And I've yet to get through December.

The month started out with The Nix, the debut novel by Nathan Hill which has been receiving a lot off positive reviews. In it Hill flips back and fourth from the 1968 Chicago protests and 2011 in a desperate search for the truth behind why his mother abandoned him at an early age. In between Hill takes on politics, the media and addiction as well as other aspects of society. It's a well-spun tale and I quite enjoyed reading it.

Next up was the auto-biographical I Am Brian Wilson of Beach Boys fame. This was somewhat of a scattered affair but an interesting read nonetheless. Wilson - or his ghostwriter - however is no Hemingway.

Then it was on to one of my favourite authors, Ian Rankin and his latest tale of now retired Inspector John Rebus, Rather Be The Devil. I never tire of these stories and this is the 21st in …
