    NoCelebrity Aye lad, I knew you had it in you

    Unnecessary elaboration?

    Those are the answers (4oct09) that confused you!

    The riddles were the 28sep09 post by Andi.

    1.(vac)ANT ENG(aged) with the dial stuck halfway between the two possibilities.

    2. Break up the answer (Balladeer) to the first clue "singer" for the other answers to the remaining clues.

    But really, Linn, it's no fun for you if I have to explain it for Andi.:D

    Or maybe it IS fun for you...:confused1:

    And check out my joke in the chatbox!

    The opposite of a something that reads the same forwards AND backwards. Or is it the reverse? Or more like a moebius strip.

    Palindrome spelt backwards

    Laarsens is an anagram of Arsenals coz it's a football pub

    Here's a little guesser for you.

    What is different about Nick this tour from last? Let's see how observant you all are...

    Guesstimate?

    He hasn't broken a string yet coz he's invested in carbon technology?

    Noooo! I thought maybe I had made reference to this to you Saturday? Maybe not.

    Hmmmmnnnnn,

    I'm gonna have to think about this....

    Is it that the drink du jour has changed?

    oh - critch alluded to that, so can't be that. :confused1:

    I well thought it was that too. His hair was smarter... couldn't spot the hole in the bottom of the lowden, but then I hardly ever see it... has it been fixed maybe? Guitar was downtuned, pegs were still the banjo pegs....fruit based laptop was there.... sure it was the same pedal set up as last time, although I think that was different from the instore gig in St Helens.... think it was the same microphone (I am that sad, I did look! lol).....

    Relates to one of the above, critch...

    scotpaulabear Halfway up my own guitar, propping up another bar

    New Lowden, no mousehole :) That's the one he was playing at Birkenhead, it's smaller as well. Though I'm very happy to see the mousehole-den is immortalized on the album cover :wink: He probably wouldn't leave the new one in the snow LOL.

    Critch, you noticed the hair looked pretty together - see, you have a future as a fashion reporter yet... :D
     
  18. critch

    critch Aye lad, I knew you had it in you

    OMG. Can't believe it - all the signs were there! I remember looking at the guitar and thinking it looked small, and I also remember wondering if it was actually the lowden in the snow or whether it was a cunningly doctored picture...

    I'm so silly. Thanks Paula! :blushing:

    and I only noticed the hair cause I pointed out to Danni that it was her job to do the fashion report!

    The guitar was very kindly given to Nick by the aforementioned (in Masque thread) Brian Dunn last year.

    Can't believe no one spotted it earlier...although admittedly, there have only been a few dates so far. I thought maybe Paul would have done at Cambridge and was waiting for him to say. :D

    I wondered why no string changes, now I know why? :m8: :biggrin: (I also noticed that the old Lowden on the new album cover...has a broken string!)
