I know some of you received new mandolin family instruments as holiday gifts this year -- how about some pics of you with your new axe? (...and with a big grin on your face, I imagine http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif )

Dec-29-2003, 1:22pm
me and my stringed piece of wood... http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mandosmiley.gif

Hope to get a real mandolin soon, one wich doesn't bend every time I try to tune it ^_^

Dec-29-2003, 2:05pm
That's me as seen from the point of view of the server host on Dec 26th..

Actually (lordy) these days I'm most often seen in a suit & tie walking around London's financial district. I get a lot of funny looks when I carry a mandolin case around on the commuter trains

Okay, okay - since i started this blasted thread many moons ago I would be remiss if I didn't post a new picture now and again.

Here's me in my bathrobe very early on Christmas morning.

Is there such a thing as DAS?

mad dawg
Dec-30-2003, 12:13pm

Does DAS start out small, like with a bodhran, or is this not your first full drum kit? (BTW, Did you also get a new guitar, or is the guitar kit for another member of your family?)

Dec-30-2003, 10:06pm
The drums are actually a gift from Santa Claus to my 11 year-old son. #He has been playing trumpet in the school band for a couple of years and now wants to start on percussion. #Myself? #I never touch the things! http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif

The guitar kit is for my 16 year-old who has been playing electric guitar for a couple of years now. #It's a copy of Stratocaster and I'm reminded of the reason that I do not build instruments. #http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif

I got me a few shirts, some socks and a nice assortment of cigars.....what more can a man ask for?

Only 737 more views to 50,000! #Hard to believe the longevity of this thread!

Dec-30-2003, 10:30pm
Hey, Pete!

I think I speak for many when I say I'm very grateful that your 11-year-old decided to take up drums rather than, say, flute or some such... if it weren't for that strategically placed snare, that photo could be takin' a really ugly turn!

Doubtful they'll ever make a glass snare.

I think this thread will hit a lot more than 50,000. #What a great fantastic thread. #We always call this a community, a family, a 'Fellowship of the Ring (of the mandolin)". #No wonder we want to see who we are communing with. #I hope that people will continue to add more pictures of themselves and their mandos. #Keep em coming.

Oh, mandopete. #THanks for the keeping the snare where it is in the picture.... http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif

Those octave mandolins are an absolute blast to play!

You gonna be at Wintergrass?

Jan-02-2004, 2:48pm

I wanna join the fun too! Here is a picture of me and my Kentucky KM-675. Hopefully this works!


Jan-02-2004, 3:18pm
yup, reserved my room already...gonna room with the Minnesota MAS Madman again.

If all goes right in the next few days, I will have 2 new mandos to sample (a CE Ward and a Gatt), as well as the Coleson and the venerable Hughes, sounding better with every passing day.

Looking forward to pickin' with y'all in the radio room.

We just got some new pics up on our site from our gig last night at Oskar Blues in Lyons, CO.


I'd post them here, but if the board goes down again because of it I may not make it through another dry spell...

Jan-10-2004, 12:03am
Just got my first mando 2 days ago... here we are!

Jan-10-2004, 7:46pm
I wish I had a pic of me and my new mando. Unfortunately I'm the one in the family that usually takes pics, so I have very few of myself. http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif And of course no one had their cameras ready on Christmas when I was rockin' out on my mando.

However...I do have a single pic of me with my fiddle...it's a few years old, but just imagine I have bangs, and I look exactly the same.

http://im1.shutterfly.com/procser....0001610 (http://im1.shutterfly.com/procserv/47b3dd33b3127cce9515131fbbff0000001610)

OK nevermind...it was gonna be a pic of me and my fiddle, but I can't seem to get pics from Shutterfly to work here. Any suggestions?

Jan-11-2004, 1:22pm

You're pic link works just fine on my computer...

Jan-13-2004, 2:00pm
Cute picture, dixiecreek! Your smile projects sincerity.


Jan-15-2004, 3:21am
Hey everyone, I'm not a regular, and I don't have a pic with me and my mando, but in case you were curious here's me post-renfest, lol.


Jan-15-2004, 10:30pm
Well the moment the world has been waiting for - fatt-dad with the sand-in-the-gears Korean-made Montana. Genuine four-piece top (I think they only had a piece of spruce that was 3 in wide.) Truly the perfect travel mandolin and victim for learning mandolin repair. So far it survives. Look for it later in the month in Orlando and next month in Panama!

PS: By the way dixiecreek, I dunn which one is you in your picture, but the one on the right looks ALOT like Sara Watkins. **thats a complement** ;)

Jan-28-2004, 10:55am
NickelCreeker, I haven't let them near my mandolin as they are still at the "Se it, bang it, see if it comes apart" stage of development, which is fine around b@$jos but dangerous for mandos.

I do play guitar for them however. THey really like Whiskey Before Breakfast.

Jan-29-2004, 12:39pm
duh, I play m-a-n-d-o-l-i-n, duh-ert.

"worst pic ever" # #
this is me and my teacher playing in a banquet room at the harborview center in clearwater, fl -- last september.
they stuck us by a very large window overlooking the intercoastal. #nice view, but the SUN... oh, god, it was brutal... a photographer there, felt sorry for us and he put up some of his partitions to block the sun from us , for a while, then it was dark and we were ok.

this was the night or evening, I dropped off at least five measures of vivaldi's first movement C concerto. toward the end, I dont know why, but I ate it. the other guy, joe, he is awesome, he picked up right where I screwed up and took it through until I found my spot on the page.yeh, I should have THAT tune memorized by now.

I get that alot,looking mean, being mean, whatever, I have russian family too (my name, shuniak) but also mostly greek family.
this pic (above) I just look kinda dumb from the poor posture.

Jan-29-2004, 2:00pm
Jeff....Something about that pic was bothering me...then It hit me...DUH...your a lefty! Also you look just like my old banjo player (maybe it's just your posture!)

Christine W
Jan-29-2004, 2:58pm
I dont' think you look dumb at all. You look like your concentrating. I thought it was a good picture, it's funny how we see ourselves. You should see the faces I make when I play. I laugh at myself quite often.
Oh and I can be mean too but not as a general rule. My father's last name was Savdchek (thats pretty russian) He changed it because he joined the military and worked for Army intelligence and they didn't want him to have an obvious russian last name. Your last name sounds more german than russian?http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/rock.gif

#Your last name sounds more german than russian?http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/rock.gif
german? I have never heard that one. I have heard eskimo though. yes, someone, actually a guy who sold me a mandolin, asked me if shuniak was an eskimo name.

I did go to alaska in 2001 and yes eskimos have very similar names to mine. I cant think of any though. #maybe there is a mongolian in the "woodpile."

you know so many of our ancestors went off to wars of various kinds and fought. pre-immigration or emmigra.. who knows what our female ancestors did while the men were off for such long excursions. thats the saying "you never know whats in the woodpile"

Christine W
Jan-30-2004, 9:17am
"I cant think of any though. #maybe there is a mongolian in the "woodpile.""

That is too funny. I had someone tell me I look mongolian. Of course that could be since they conquered allot of that area . Hmm maybe a decendent of Gingis Kahn? (kidding) I'm going to have to look into my ancestry I've been wanting to do that for a long time.

Jan-30-2004, 9:55am
christine, I have to say, your pic , although you are very beautiful, but your pic looks like japanamation. I suppose its the hues or the outlines, I cant figure it out. I hope I'm not offending you, its a great pic. maybe it is the russian eyes. we often joke about g.kahn too! my sister and I. its funny we are 3/4 greek but we look exacly like our ONE russian grandparent,we all have those eyes.

I have tried to research my russian ancestry, its hard. we are actually Carpathian, so that makes it even harder. I am not sure how many common "russians" were literate, compared to my greek ancestors which are real easy to trace. if it wasnt written.. its real hard to find.

Christine W
Jan-30-2004, 10:46am
No offence taken, it's probably the angle it was taken and the digital camera I was messing with. I was trying to figure out how to use it for a friend. I was a photography major for two years before I switched to Graphic design. I like to find unique ways of taking a photograph (mainly to enhance the poistive and minimize the negative).

I don't think I would be able to find much out about my ancestry either. Both my parents are gone. My father left his homeland when he was fourteen. He tried to find his parents through the red cross and the only info he got was that his mother was last seen going into a town that was bombed and she never was seen again. My mother's side I still have some aunts. uncles and cousins so that would be easier. Although she came from Prussia originally , she was a refugee during world war II and had to relocate to w. germany. She had some interestin tales and a very difficult childhood.
I guess I better quit hogging up this thread with my family history, sorry guys.

Feb-21-2004, 9:35pm
That picture brings to mind. A very obscure Bill Monroe tune. Farewall to Longhollow. Excellent tune. It was recorded by a Fiddler names James Bryan.

Feb-22-2004, 9:32am
Maverick - love that tune, love those James Bryan records -

cool shtuff!

when u think about it the chord progression to
"Farewall to long hollow" is the same ( different key)
as Norman Blakes "Jackie Tar" on the full moon on the farm album.
Big Mon is a guilty as Woody Guthrie, John Hartford, ect ect

Me & my best audience
MandoPaul --- these two might look mellow in this photo, but they are far from my best audience: the one of the left actually bit one of my mandolins while I was playing it once!

Mar-08-2004, 12:09pm
Hey Madawg,
Are those Aussies or Border Collies...? They're beautiful dogs. I have an Aussie (and an Aussie/Border Collie Mutt), and I can totally relate about the "not mellow" part. But she is the sweetest dog I've ever met.

mad dawg
Mar-08-2004, 12:39pm
Mine are Aussies as well, and your girl is quite a beautiful Merle. And an Aussie/Border Collie mix is a great combo. (and likely is scary smart!)

Jack and Arnie are also really sweet dogs. Arnie, the one on the right, thinks he is a 55 pound lapdog, and he usually doesn't give you any warning when it's lap-time: he'll come running out of nowhere and leap up into your lap at full speed. (That has freaked out more than one guest sitting in his favorite chair!)

Mar-08-2004, 2:13pm
Um...Mad Dawg...what um....are those dogs doing on your bed exactly?

So many have jumped on this thread I thought I would join in. Here is my ulgy mug with one of my Hummingbird Mandolins. This one is walnut with spruce top and figured cherry peghead.

Mar-08-2004, 4:16pm
Mad Dawg....Great photo! You should send that off to Hallmark!

mad dawg
Mar-08-2004, 4:37pm
Jack and Arnie are obviously quite close, and the photo really wasn't staged: they were already "spooning" when I saw them on the bed -- all I did was move Arnie's arm over on top of Jack. #

Mad Dawg & Mandofiddle;
Nice picts, my sister has a blue merle. Her dog wants to play frisbee all day, and herd my little white dog like a sheep! Both very good dogs. My little dog howls when I play, but has just been listening lately...maby gettin' better?

mad dawg
Mar-08-2004, 4:56pm
Our Arnie doesn't care about toys; he just wants to herd everything and everyone that moves. Jack on the other hand is our obsessive-compulsive athlete: as long as he is awake, he either has a frisbee or ball in his mouth, looking for someone to play. Sometimes at night even, we will be awakened by Jack dropping a tennis ball repeatedly onto the floor beside our bed: THUMP, thump, thump thump, thump... THUMP, thump, thump thump, thump... THUMP, thump, thump, thump, thump...

Mar-08-2004, 5:09pm
I have a beagle and she loves to try and get in my lap while I'm playing mandolin. Maybe that is her way of getting me to stop! She's like...play with ME....play with Me! http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif

I don't know what Mad Dawg's hounds were doing but my girls are listening to me butcher "Cattle in the Cane". As you can tell from their expressions they would rather listen to Sam Bush's version. #http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif

How did this thread morph into pictures of dogs?

Jim Hilburn
Mar-10-2004, 5:36pm
Hey, Pete, I don't know how it got to dogs, but for some reason, I decided to have a look back at the first page, and I realized this thread is about to have it's first birthday. Thats March 15 to be exact.
After a slow start with a couple of bogus posts, the first to actually post their picture was our own Alaskan mando man, G.Smolt. By the way, I was third.

Mar-10-2004, 8:25pm
Didn't Pete post his first? He needs to do an aniversary one, though. Good job on the longest running and most viewed topic here ( I think it's the longest running...)!

Mar-10-2004, 8:40pm
These pics came out too big to put up (my free trial ran out on my paint program, so I found one that let me get them off my camera and crop, but not resize!).

First of all, I'd like to thank Wayne (Mando4Life) for loaning me his Kentucky.

I did an updated pic w/ that mandolin and my hair growing back out a little.

Which is here. (http://wildwoodflower81.tripod.com/Kentucky.htm)

Also, I knew that no one says I'm pretty in real life, and a few did because of the pics before....hm....there could be one difference off the top of my head. *L* As long as we're posting pictures of dogs, the reason you won't see my teeth in most pics (I SO should have had braces about 10yrs ago, but I don't care so I'll show ya *L*)

Arf Arf *LOL* (http://wildwoodflower81.tripod.com/Eeek.htm)

I got those links fixed now. I didn't realize Tripod wouldn't let me post pics!

Mar-10-2004, 9:33pm
I see NO problem! Quite beautiful indeed; You and the mando!

Mar-10-2004, 9:37pm
Jeremy: Well, doesn't show up too clearly in a picture from that distance (in the bathroom mirror in the morning on the other hand... *L*). Anywho. I HAVE to say something mean about somebody atleast three times I day or I shrivel up and die. Might as well get one of them in about myself right? http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif

Mar-11-2004, 7:30am
It is hard to see ourselves as others see us. We tend to be either too hard on ourselves or too easy. You are a lovely young lady, Nik-Chick; there is no need for you to think otherwise. Be good to yourself - you deserve good things.

(Okay - so what if Mr. Rogers is my role model - it's true!)

Mar-11-2004, 8:00am
By the way, I realized I do have a picture of me with my mandolin. It is my $50.00 Johnson - I sure do love that mando. (Of course, about all you can see in this picture is the neck.) #

I'm worthy
I am loved

RE: Stuart Smalley

There is a wonderful movie on video called "Stuart Saves his Family." Very funny, entertaining, yet instructive. I use this movie in my work as an addictions counselor to help get some ideas across to clients. If you can find it, the is also a Stuart Smalley "daily affirmation" book called, "I'm Good Enough, I'm Smart Enough, and, Doggone It, People Like Me." I don't know if I have ever laughed so hard as when I was reading it.

As silly as affirmations might sound, we really do need to be better to ourselves. http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif

Mar-11-2004, 3:43pm
sounds great to me! #funny thing is I'll be playing the same venue I met them at on the 20th. and yes! I am dying to check out that Sumi! I hope we get to meet up again and talk shop. say hello for me,

Hey Nic-Chick, nice pictures of you & your mando! Just where is Holston, where it says "Holston Valley Girl" below your name. I'm from northern (upstate)NY.

Mar-11-2004, 9:15pm
Paul: I'm not in the Holston Valley right now. The tag is tounge-in-cheek. I started saying one day "But, I am NOT a valleygirl! I'm a Holston ValleyGirl!" whenever I did something ditzy. A Holston Valley girl...a girl who belongs in the Holston Valley (think Appalachia, kinda near Clinch Mountain) would be night and day different from one who belongs in "The Valley" for sure. It's kinda obvious tho, 'cause no one who knows me in real life would EVER mistake me for a Valley Girl.

I have no idea exactly from where to where the Holston Valley actually is. My sense of direction/geography sucks. I just know what area, and that that's where I wish I was sometimes. I was born in Bristol, TN/VA. I don't care for cities any larger than that....but I work in Nashville, TN and live not far from it.

Mar-11-2004, 10:54pm
N.C.,: TN,TN, Ain't no place I'd rather be....
(i used to play that one on guitar)
I would kind of like to visit the Opery sometime. Yeah, kind of a big city, but that's what makes it exiting. Plus you can probably see all kinds of live music there. How are the BG festivals? Must have big ones down there. Well, keep on pickin' & http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif

Mar-11-2004, 10:56pm
Not really, there are small ones outside of town. But there are too many musicians in Nashville to have a festival, if that makes any since.

caught by my partner, getting ready to record (dylan- dont think twice its alright).

Mandopete: With this wild bunch that was BOUND to happen sooner or later that someone's clothes would come off...I'm just glad it was covered by the mandolin and part of a celebration.


Mandodude: You're right, that thing about the post DOES sound wrong!

Mar-15-2004, 2:34pm
Hm...the Carter Fold website disagrees w/ me and says it's only 20mi to Bristol (of course, that's from Carter Fold not the homeplace, but they're all right there togather). I'm sure the drive up that dern mountain is what's got either me or them confused. I'll find out soon!

Since the "Picks for Pete" thingie worked so well, I call this one "Pants for Pete!"

On those rare occasions when I get the opportunity to "hang with the big dogs," it's usually because what they see in me is not only a sucker who'll spring for the beer, but a guy who'll fetch it back to the stage for 'em, too!

Oh well *sigh*... a man's gotta do what a man's gotta do...

Hey Scotti! You ready for another cold one??

Are you Italian or something like that, Jeff? The whole pictures looks extremely Italian!

Mar-23-2004, 12:09pm
something like that.... carpathian/greek, you know, carpathians are the "original"
hillbillies. http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif vampires too! I have pronounced incisor teeth myself, no joke!

Mar-23-2004, 2:47pm
Hey, Jeff!

Carpathian/Ruthenian here! We're probably related, buddy... or, should I say "cousin!!?!"


Mar-23-2004, 2:49pm
Hey, wasn't Vlad The Impaler Carpahtian?

Mar-23-2004, 3:02pm
Yeah... well... despite his many *ahem* "faults," there's one thing you gotta say about Vlad the Impaler...

...he never posed nude!


Mar-23-2004, 3:38pm
Yup - he's handsome!

(and I always say if ya got it - flaunt it!)

Mar-23-2004, 3:40pm
vlad's castle is in the carpathian mountains. #he was born in a town called Sighisdura, which is southwest of his castle. I am not sure if that is considered carpathia or not. I understand that carpathia could be anything from the Ukraine, shore of the black sea, and into hungary and russia.

nice pic up there!

thats my main man up there! my peeps.

Old Vlad the Impaler was quite an impressionist. Those who weren't impressed, were just left dangling. I wish I could say I got my nickname from him, but I honestly got it from playing baseball as a kid. Regards, "Spike" Berner

Pete: Easy to be brave from a distance, until you realize that you will see many of us in real life and we've all seen you nekid. That's why I've never heard of anyone making that mistake twice. *L*

WOW! We saw Pete nekid and now we've seen Dan "buzzed", what's next?

Mar-29-2004, 10:18pm
It wasn't me, it was just a hologram!

Mar-29-2004, 10:34pm
Yeah Pete and it wasn't me that saw it on my computer screen, it was Sam Bush in a Jeremy suit!
