Me too RJ, I brew my own beer and distill spirits (making a really fine bourbon these days) and have just started wine making. My peach wine is a peach, as  we wine makers say, very drinkable, with a hint of peach. Can't remember tho last time I was drunk,  not because I was drunk, just too long ago

I'm an avid homebrewer with a few beers on tap at all times.  Having said that, I hate even feeling tipsy let alone drunk.  So I'm like Whitestrat in that I may have 1 or 2 over the course of an evening but that's it.

Never been much of a drinker. I don't abstain, but 1 or 2 drinks, over a couple of hours, is more than enough for me....
You might be right, neil....  :P

Alcohol is so very "college" for me.  I drank a lot of it back in college.  Didn't drink any in HS. After graduate school, it became sort of ho-hum.  Now, occasionally I'll have a beer at a restaurant with dinner. I don't even keep them at the house.  Now, Diet Coke on the other hand...

Used to drink soda (pop) a long time back, but got so I didn't care for anything carbonated.  I do miss a good Root Beer once in a while - with ice cream...

Yeah, but I gave up alcohol back in the early '70's.  Been coffee ever since.  4-5 cups an hour when I'm home, 2-3 an hour when I'm out working.  Every place I work knows they get a better deal if they keep coffee handy...

Sorry, this is somewhat off-topic...

But wouldn't it be nice to have a challenge of challenges?... That is, take e.h the winners of the last five years and ask people to vote between those.

That would definitely be interesting, Spiral.  Had never thought of that...

Great J man. I'm in  8)
Hope I don't choose one you've have chosen.

Tell you what though, It'd be fun for us to choose for each other.
IE Everybody who's in chooses one son g for each of the others who are in and we (ourselves) choose from the list which to do. That way there is some sort of challenge out of comfort zone

So, this little challenge stems from a thread started by BoneDigger, and a suggestion from Way2lon.  And as it happens, is based on one my favorite fun things to do.

Expanding on BoneDigger's question (what was music like in your school years?), what was one of your most inspirational songs during that time?  What is one of your favorite songs of the period that really made you want to sing along, and even learn to play an instrument?

Not necessarily the favorite, but just one among many that really struck that "I wanna be a musician/singer" nerve when you first heard it.

This challenge is for you to answer those questions with a song.  With what we here at TTM call a "Cheater".  Very basically, a cheater is karaoke.  You pick a song, find a backing track, and sing along.  While recording.  There are backing tracks out there for 98% of all songs ever done, so it shouldn't be too hard to find yours.  But they can cost up to $1.

This isn't meant to take the place of any other challenge in progress, but on the other hand it shouldn't take much time.  The only work involved is clicking record, and singing along with one of your favorite old songs.  And when aren't we singing along with one of favorite old songs anyway?

My feeling is that there shouldn't be a vote or a winner for this, because the main objective is for everyone to have a good time and bring back some good old memories.  Seems to me that for something like this, I'd have to agree with the song line (Everyone's a winner, baby, that's no lie).

But, as challenges go, people may want to vote on their favorite.  Up to the crew.

What does everybody think?  No specific time limit, maybe up to a month or so.  Pick one of your favorite school days songs, grab a track, and sing it.  Just like we did back then.  Well, maybe not "just like" we did back then.  :P

And hopefully this won't be just Way2 and myself, it would be great fun to get everybody in on this one.  Remember, no work and very little time required for this.

So, anybody?  (-!)

General Discussion / Re: The music from your HS years?
« Last post by Gazebo on Yesterday at 08:10:18 AM »
When I started secondary school everyone was listening to Queen, Genesis, Pink Floyd,Led Zep etc.  I was a bit of a pop fan so much more into singles artists.

The next phase was the arrival of punk, where The Clash, Sex Pistols, The Jam, Buzzcocks, Ruts grabbed me with their instantaneous tunes and energy

Then in no time it was new wave, Elvis Costello (still a favourite), Blondie etc.

I left school at the time the New Wave of British Heavy Metal was coming in, loved Saxon, ambivalent about Iron Maiden  Almost simultaenously Ska and the new Mod movement started and that was my direction for several years, drawing me back into old motown etc. 

Shortly after I left school (and while a lot of my friends were still completing sixth form) the art school Liverpool bands started that dragged me in another direction - Echo & The Bunnymen, The Mighty Wah, Teardrop Explodes, Icicle Works.

Seems like an amazingly varied period looking back
