My fifteen year old midi guitar controller died. I decided to search for a new one. I found the cheapest one I could find, and then a place that was selling a used one for 1/2 price. I bought it. It is wireless and fits nicely on my semi hollow body guitar.
  Now I  have formed a new band and have called it "Fish Man". Me on keyboard. Me on Bass. Me on Guitar. Me on Horns and Strings and Pads. Me on Lead instrument.  The discerning listener will notice I have a formula for the creation of the songs. It is intended, because I am old and tired of getting complicated. I have presented various styles of music in this compilation with some new and exciting lead instruments.

Enjoy if you can. ( that is the title of my first cassette of original music 32 years ago )

I listened to "senseless", "calm down" and "vienna" so far.  Very Good! 🎹 🎸

Doesn't seem to be a way to download or embed from this website though. ☹️  Upload the mp3s to the Diner or send me them in email so I can use them in your sidebar box on the Blog.

Also, you need to add lyrics and SING! 🎤   :icon_sunny:

LOL...I wouldn't try to sing a note anymore. Maybe Eddie's daughter and I could hook up! :) LOL

Actually, I was thinking that exact thing myself, just waiting for you to respond.  :icon_sunny:

I can write the lyrics if that is not your forte.  I do song parodies all the time here on the Diner, and back in my college years I wrote poetry and music lyrics as a means to pickup girls. lol.  ;D

Main thing I would suggest is some tempo changes and some crescendos inserted in.  I listened to pieces at least of all the tunes.  I would take 2 or 3 of the pieces you used in the same key and combine them as well.  My old buddy Randi from the Pirate Radio years was very good at this, sadly he has gone to the Great Beyond.  :(   He put together many pieces of Floor Music for my Gymmies by combining different rock music of the era.

I am going to put up a Poll for which piece or pieces should be used to create a Diner Theme Song:icon_sunny:  Once we have the music set, I will write the lyrics and Karen can sing it.  Maybe she will even perform it live!  :icon_sunny:

The Diner Pantry / 🥣 Doomstead Diner Dinner Special: 1/20/2018
« on: January 20, 2018, 08:01:17 PM »
We missed Lunch today because I was out on a Prep Run to Walmart. 🏃‍♂️ So for the Dinner Special tonight we are having the planned Soup4Lunch meal, with the addition of some Cheesy Garlic Bread to make it even MOAR filling.  The final soup in this week's specials is Split Pea with Ham, another real stick to the ribs soup.  I didn't like it much as a kid, but that was because my mom only bought the Campbell's Condensed version, which is very thin when you add the water.  When Campbells came out with the Chunky variety of soups, I developed a liking for Split Pea soup.  The best split pea soup you make from scratch yourself using dried split peas.  It's rarely on the menu at restaurants, even those that offer a large soup menu.  Available at the Diner though!

This concludes our week of Soup4Lunch specials.  There are many others I could have included, so I probably will do another 1 or two of these weeks in the future.  I LOVE 💓 soup!

Whether you use emojis or not is entirely up to you.  Creative Thinking Interesting Cool 😎 individuals like myself and AG like to use them; Conventional Thinking Boring Uncool 🤤 people like Surly & Eddie do not.

Well said.  ;D ✨  🎋 🎍

I might add that resistance to change is one of those Maslow recogniized traits that, though always present among those lacking flexibility and creativity, increasingly manifest themseves as old age dementia sets in. 🙉
NOTE: If that doesn't pull their chain good and proper, nothing will!

Fuck all y'all.



For someone who doesn't like emojis. you seem to have a real affection for the Pile of Poo emo.  :icon_mrgreen:

Sadly, so far there is no NOOSE emoji



and no GUILLOTINE emoji



Those would get a lot of use on the Diner I am sure.  :icon_mrgreen:

The best realization I ever had was that I didn't have to get it all done in one lifetime.

Indeed.  In this lifetime, I am fortunately gifted with a fabulous imagination.  :icon_sunny:  When I return, it will be to where I belong, on that first cat rigged sailing canoe that made landfall on the Big Island of Hawaii.  🛶  Sailing to FREEDOM!


The Hokulea BTW is currently on a worldwide circumnavigation.  What I wouldn't give to be on that boat.😔

Good location too, down island. Good starting point for a nice year or two  of Caribbean sailing.

Sadly, short of a miraculous recovery or a partner still in good enough shape to sail, that person won't be me.  :(

Far as the condition of the boat goes, at least from the pics it LOOKS like it was meticulously maintained.  However, you don't know how old those pictures are.  They could be 20 years old from two owners ago.  So yea, you have to fly down there and have it surveyed before buying.  I wouldn't trust a survey I wasn't present to see done.

FAQs / 😇 Inserting ASCII Emojis
« on: January 20, 2018, 08:57:41 AM »

ASCII Emojis are just like text you keyboard.  They each have a code behind them and each platform has its own version of the character.  So what you see on Apple looks a little different than what you see on Windows or Google or Android.

The easiest way to add them to your text is to go to https://emojipedia.org/ and copy/paste into your text.

Procedure is as follows:

1- Open up a window with the https://emojipedia.org/ website
2- Click on the category of emoji you are looking for or type the keyword in the SEARCH box at the top of the page.  If there is an emoji for it, the search will find it.
3- Click on the emoji you want to use, and a new screen for that emoji pops up.
4- Click the "copy" button for that emoji
5- Go back to the window where you were keyboarding and paste (ctrl+V) wherever you want (including in the Subject (Title) Field)

No html or bbcode tags are necessary.  It's just like a text character.

Agelbert Newz / 😇 How to insert ASCII Emojis into your text ANYWHERE!
« on: January 20, 2018, 08:54:20 AM »
With the availability of the new ASCII Emojis, I am issuing a new style directive on the Diner.

In the titles on the Subject Line of your post, stick to ONE Emoji, either at the beginning or the end of the title.  Let's not overkill here.

Knarf, so far no ASCII Emoji for the NTHE Symbol.  You do have the Skull & Crossbones though! ☠️

The Diner Pantry / 🐷 Doomstead Diner Breakfast Special: 1/20/2018
« on: January 20, 2018, 08:14:34 AM »
This is a dish I never eat myself.  It's basically your standard bacon/eggs/cheese/potatoes breakfast, but all smushed together in one pan.  I prefer to take bites of each food type separately and enjoy the distinct flavor and texture of each.  This dish is for PIGS 🐷 who like to shovel as much food in their mouth as they can with every bite.

Country Breakfast

Reminder:  Monday we will begin featuring the Diner To-Go Breakfast Menu.  If you commute to work or school, don't miss next week's Diner offerings!

Marathon Man Newz / ⛵ Seastead of the Day: Return to Reality
« on: January 20, 2018, 08:05:27 AM »
I'm taking a break from Fantasyland for a more realistic boat today.  ::)  Decision on Pilot-Navigator for the Big Boat in Diner Fantasyland to come tomorrow, along with candidates for Chief Engineer.

1953 Custom built Wood boat located in Curacao.  A bit safer than Turkey. 🔫  Asking $32K, I can Jew him down to $27K I am sure.  I can buy this one myself even without partnering with Eddie, who must follow the diktats of She Who Must Be Obeyed. 👫 lol.


Standard cabin plan, but well kept and well appointed!


Electronics need an upgrade, and the engine is a 2003 with 1382 hours on it.  That might need a replacement.  I have a soft spot for custom designed wood boats though, particularly ones as old as this one.

Perfect single handed sailer.  I will of course need a crew, but only one for this one!  :icon_sunny:  I'll keep her loyalty by dropping her in my will for the boat and all the rest of my worldly possesions when I buy my ticket to the Great Beyond, along with the coordinates for all my buried preps.  Returning now to Fantasy land...

You have obviously forgotten what it's like to live with a woman.

Yes, I have.  But thanks for reminding me WHY I don't live with a woman.  ::)

These days, I have to piss a dozen times a day (Urologist appt Fri finally), but if I just piss I don't flush except at the end of the day.  I flush also if I take a shit.  Not even women shit a dozen times a day.

Amerikans use 100 gallons of water/day? ???  Unless they are averaging in the water used by Ag over the whole population, I don't see how that is possible.

At any rate, it will be interesting to see if the rains arrive JIT or how long it takes Cape Town to depopulate.

https://www.cbsnews.com/news/cape-town-drought-water-shortage-south-africa/

Now THIS article is the shit. Also supports Irv Mills' thesis of slow, step down contractions on. the way to Doom.

Low-Flow toilets use in the neighborhood of 1 1/4 gallons, usually 3.5 gallons for an older model. If you have two people in a household who flush a dozen times a day, there's 30 gallons right there with a low flow. And then add kids. And mama's Hollywood showers. Toss in cooking, cleaning and coffee, and 100 gal/day doesn't seem THAT unreasonable, at least per household.

Who flushes a dozen times a day?  :o  That would be some serious diareah problem!
