Is It Me?

Postby Teddy Dupont » Sat Jan 13, 2007 11:10 pm

Is it me or are all the posts on every gypsy jazz forum at the moment boring beyond human endurance? :cry:

I haven't checked out other forums, due to me getting a life recently, what paint-drying subjects are hip at the mo'?

Hi Teddy,

don´t be unfair. Please be aware that there is a really thrilling New-Year´s-greeting on this Gypsy Jazz Forum:

I know what you're saying,Teddy, but there has to be a limit about exactly how much can be said about almost any subject, and here we're discussing a pretty well defined genre that doesn't always give a lot of leeway to debating in a broader musical spectrum.

For the record, 'How many times a week should I change my bridge type threads' make me think rivetting my wedding tackle to the table might be good fun.

The same conversations, over and over, are fine in the pub with your mates but lose a bit when typed out repeatedly on an internet message-board.

That said, I'm still more than happy to trawl through oceans of posts like this one to find the occaisional nugget that makes a difference.

I suggest that during these lulls in the excitement a thread should be started discussing exactly how small Cabo's knob really is.

I'm going to start making another guitar in a couple of weeks so perhaps in the pursuit of interest I'll post a few photos of my construction process. In the meantime, here's a picture of some paint drying.

This is obviously not an authentic picture of paint drying. Clearly, this paint is already dry. Not only that but it has not been applied using only downward strokes of the brush. You have foolishly used the odd upward stroke as you changed brushes hence producing something slightly different to authentic gypsy jazz painting.

Experts who knew the cousin of a friend of one of Baro Ferret's prostitute's clients have proven conclusively that Django only use downward strokes of the brush whilst painting such incredible masterpieces as:-

I see no brush whatsoever in that painting.

On the evidence of my dubious brush technique you think I should go back to the wax crayons, then?

Hi all,

I feel I must point out also Django´s stunning left hand technique while creating these delicate masterpieces (be aware that he had two crippled fingers!)

Best,

He seemed to use the same dazzling left hand technique whilst viewing his paintings also:-

Ahhh! excellent. pictures of tits and paint. The universal languages of guys bonding together, except for those who 'Bat For The Other Side'.

Although I think this one that he gave to Jean Sablon is probably my favourite. I have always had a soft spot for headless women with massive bums and legs like tree trunks.

:D That last painting is great! it sure does remind me of Zoot getting out of his tent in the morning at Samois. Uncanny body dimension similarities.
