    Not sure why anyone would want to do this but I admire the guy for doing it.

    PCSPECIALIST Kimchi

    Sainsbury's are now stocking a very nice Kimchi, the Vadasz Raw is good, not sure about the Yukata version they do as not tried it yet, will report back after a tasting.

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Fender Pro II Bass

    I cannot really justify buying another guitar at the moment and already have a great bass but have often thought about getting a five-string and having heard the sound of the latest Fender Jazz am thinking a lot more about it. Probably best to listen through headphones or with decent...

    PCSPECIALIST The end of an era

    Sad news from Germany, the VW canteen will no longer offer Currywurst. https://www.welt.de/vermischtes/article233016909/Volkswagen-streicht-Currywurst-vom-Speiseplan.html

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST A top three

    Still on my summer walk about but thought I would drop by with a bit of music, my top three songs with slightly less than normal titles. 1. Whoopy Snorp by the Residents. 2. (I want to be an) Anglepoise Lamp by the Soft Boys. 3. Kowalski of the Seaview has got the best hairstyle I've ever seen...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Screamadelica

    To celebrate the 30th anniversary of this Primal Scream album, Fender are producing a special Strat: https://www.guitarguitar.co.uk/product/191119351275008--fender-custom-shop-30th-anniversary-screamadelica-stratocaster Am rather glad they are not among my favourite bands or could have been...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Vox

    It is a pity they are no longer made in the UK but Vox are still producing some great amps and with valves in, I think one of these will be on its way to me in the near future: https://voxamps.com/en-gb/product/ac30-custom-head/ Not long got a bass amp but thought this would go well with it and...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Ubuntu Studio

    This is very old news but just in case there are others like me who missed it, it is quite useful. If you want a low latency distro but do not want the standard Studio desk top it is possible to add Studio to any of the official Unbutu flavours with this command line: sudo apt install...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST What is your favourite pedal?

    Please note, this is a thread for guitarists, not cyclists :) There have been a lot of good pedals over the years and some pretty dire ones as well. Not sure how good this is going to be, although some of the demo sounds from it were very interesting and as someone who likes SciFi and music...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Hello again

    Not a new member by any means but as am on my Spring/Summer walkabout and not posted for a couple of months thought I would say hello again. Hope everyone is doing well and Hi to all the new members I have missed while away, not even looked at the site for a month.

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST My new toy

    Not much room for an amplifier when you are on your travels and have found this thing really good: https://www.guitarguitar.co.uk/product/14090411521832--vox-ap2-ac-amplug-2-ac30 Sound quality was better than expected and gives me the chance to practise anywhere without disturbing people.

    PCSPECIALIST Haggis

    Just watched the ITV show Made in Britain, this episode included a feature on MacSween's the Edinburgh haggis maker, worth watching if it is on catch up TV. Find the idea of a vegetarian haggis somewhat amusing, although my vegan cousin says they are great. I may try one, their genuine ones...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Counting the days

    Less than a month now until some places can re-open. Have booked a nice out of the way countryside site with caravans to rent. Anyone else got plans for a post lock down getaway?

    PCSPECIALIST Go to ingredients

    Mushrooms are a real favourite for me, put them in almost everything. Have a few other things that are fairly regular as well. Tahini, love the nutty flavour and there is always a bit that sticks to the spoon so you have to suck it clean:) Basil, especially fresh, a good herb in most dishes...

    PCSPECIALIST Regional names

    Seeing Andjef mention Dripper as another name for Lardy Cake got me thinking about different names for the same thing. I like the name many of my Scottish friends use for dumplings, Doughboys but one of my favourites, although rarely heard these days is for eggs - Cackleberries.
