One of my regrets in school was not learning a musical instrument. If I did, the saxophone or piano would've been my choice.
I learnt the trumpet at school and played in the school band.

We had the choice of trumpet or classical guitar, guitar probably would have been more useful but all the nerdy kids were doing that and a few of my mates chose to learn trumpet so I chose that too. I was never that good at it mainly because I did very little practice.

I also learnt the piano as a kid through private lessons and didn't practice that much either as it was boring classical music. I ended up quitting the lessons and when I was older I bought my own sheet music books like Elton John and Billy Joel and taught myself to play them, that was more enjoyable than playing classical music,

He's like an effeminate version of Tom Waits.
(With the slight difference being Waits is only pretending he cant sing).
Understandable for you being deaf. But i didnt realise a thorough lack of lyrical and musical comprehension to boot.
Top analogy tho. Lucky im drunk enough to realise its abject pointlessness and enjoy the charade.
You are a gem wonks. I hope you win soon and make our fey tete a tete a theme.:)

Into My Arms is one of my all time favourite songs
Who doesn't love heroin?

I went to a Nick Cave exhibition a few years ago which was more interesting than his music, I like a few of his songs but a lot of his stuff is quite dull.

Agree. Have seen some olympian effort melts.
I cant melt even if I tried.
I can journeyman work up to a simmer. Never approach a rolling boil.
But jeebus. You are right.
Who needs madame tussands. When you see more melts here than waxen figures dipped in molten lava.

Post-round update! (572)

Not much to say for this round.
  • Drunkgoliath got his first podium since his last win 14 rounds beforehand. That's 25.
  • That was my first podium in 19 contests as I moved to 108.
  • por_please_ya went B2B! Unfortunately, it's not a HoF as she didn't host the round but it still adds to her tally. 13 wins and 38 podiums.
  • spookism's billy provided some melts from him. To rub further salt into the wound, that was his 5th billy to make it a HoS entry.
