    Re: This weeks mandolin that won't get a bid or buyer

    I was referring to the way the instrument is presented - just plopped on the seller's table, with no regard for foreground, background, or anything, really, including leaving other stuff on the...

    Re: This weeks mandolin that won't get a bid or buyer

    Oh, sure. It's a cheapo-cheapo piece of junk. BUT it's priced to move. It'll be someone's starter or beater. Now, if the seller were asking $1000, I'd say they were nutso. But at $59? Might even be...

    In case anyone has forgotten their high school physics, or didn't take it, or hasn't learned since, there are four fundamental forces in nature, and gravity is by far the weakest of them. Every...

    OK, thanks for clarifying. It sounded like you were saying they weren't doing that. :confused: Sorry you had to sit next to the banjo player. :crying:

    Ok, I just want to take a few minutes and catch y'all up on some things.

    Happy Birthday, Ted! Thanks for all you do around here to keep this place humming. (And strumming.) :mandosmiley:

    Nice, Jim! But I really like the case. ;) I'm partial to purple. My case for the Vega also had purple lining. :cool:
  15. Re: "banjo-mandolin" and "nice sounding": an oxymoron?

    I don't know how much this will help, but here goes.

    This is one of the songs we used to play, and it was a feature for the banjolin. So that "counter-melody" behind the singing was my deal. Same...

    OK, enough Yoda-yadda-yadda! :grin:

    Of course, if they're anything other than taterbugs they're anachronistic. But then, it's Hollywood. ;) They didn't care too much in Tinsel Town about historical accuracy until recently, and they...

    This is the song everyone remembers - as well they should. Charming tune, well-delivered by Ms Bacall.

    Re: Mandolins in the Movies

    My personal favorite use of mandolin in movies is the opening scene of "The Hangover." The music being played is the start of "That's Amore," by Dean Martin. The choir of angelic voices is...

    Re: Post a pic of your cat sleeping in your case

    What's cuter than a cat in a case? Two cats in a case! :)) That's Neptune tending to Gryphon, who tolerates the attention. ;)
