What a great slow rocker by Tom Petty......


I love the way they raise chords (voicing lift) the bass goes up an octave, creates a nice effect

Link to post

yes - I am in love with the entire FEEL of the song - a buried treasure I can't wait to play....


By the way - my lead player is such a nit picker when it comes to sounds and styles - I'm sure he willemulate the Leslie to a T in NO MATTER WHAt. You should hear his sound on NORWEGIAN WOOD

@Dinaki that is a wonderful collaboration!  Thank you for sharing it. 


@Cyndee That is a super example of dreams lost and the reality of it.

And you're standing very close
But like this is Lower Broadway
And you're talking to a ghost"

@Dinaki I missed the Freddie Mercury.cool. I saw a Carol Burnett show where she sang Send in the Clowns. My wide thought Joni Mitchell wrote it. I said no. Turns out Stephen Sondheim wrote it. Said freddie did a version. Can't wait to get to my pc to hear it.

Bummer - the Freddie Mercury version of Send in the Clowns is instrumental....


So I guess my second choice for listing to today.... let's put on a little Supertramp... my personal favorite of theirs...

@Shay - wonderful tune. They have so many. Used to play along on harmonica to "Long way home", great memories...

I still am the harp player on our Beatles and Petty songs requiring it. It is a struggle sometimes to sing, play bass, play harp on YOU DON'T KNOW HOW IT FEELS, MARY JANE'S LAST DANCE, I SHOULD HAVE KNOW BETTER, LOSER and LOVE ME DO (this one I have to fake the notes on lead section as they used a different key harp in the studio and I tried to pick up the right key for theat part but it was way too much effort for so little payback).


And my other favorite Supertramp song ... Bloody Well Right....

Another great band.  We saw them in August '83 in Worcester, MA before Roger Hodgson left.  They spoke about it on stage.  

Link to post

never saw them - but it was sad they couldn't work things out because every band needs more than one talented writer and voice....

as promised - here are photos of Steely Dan at the University of Toledo 1972 (I think)

I love the upper one with Donald Fagen, Walter Becker and Jeff "Skunk" Baxter.... Denny Diaz is the only one I came name in the second photo besides Fagen

Thanks for the encouragement...


Love ELP and Freddie.


So just to re-affirm my love for the non-conforming. A group I have followed since the early '70s is this quirky English band called "Stackridge". almost impossible to pin any genre on them, Two of them became the "Korgis" after they split up in the 70s. But they then reformed in around 2000. Got to see them at a number of gigs until their final bow gig in 2015.

One of my favourite of their post reformation tracks is this - The Red Squirrel - about a fight back against the Grey Squirrels decimating the English population of "Reds".

Here are a local group of musicians in my town.

@Niamh Thanks for sharing.  I really enjoyed listening.  I found other performances on YT and got a full taste.  Nice!!


@Teri Anne Very good version of a Foreigner hit.  The lead singer's voice is phenomenal.

      Good evening everyone,   I am in a bit of a spot.  I had engaged with bulimia and later anorexia over a year ago, very deeply.  As I became more underweight, my gender dysphoria eased up some.  Not like I could enjoy it of course.  I was very excited when my family scheduled a date for top surgery.  However, my family has since then discovered my eating disorder.  I have been in recovery for two months and am now a healthy weight.  My thoughts around food and my body have significantly improved but my mom is still concerned about the surgery.  I still want to lose weight, but the surgery is more important to me.  I can't explain that to her.  I can't explain gender dysphoria.  She says that I just need to learn to love myself.  As I am.  As you all know, for some trans folks, that just isn't quite possible. If the surgery is cancelled, I know I'll relapse.  There would be no other way I could cope.  I have already tasted what it's like to have body that fits.  I can't explain all that.  I can, however, try to explain the benefits of a surgery.  Have any of you had any experiences regarding surgery and eating disorders?  Any comments would be most helpful.   Thank you!

      Welcome @Harlyqynn. It’s nice to have you with us. Most of us here have asked ourselves one or more of these questions of identity and/or sexual orientation since puberty and even earlier. It can take years to finally trust your own diagnosis enough to actively do anything about it. This describes me all too well.   I had two labels to work with (TS or TV) early in my youth (35 years ago). There just weren’t many back then so the labels didn’t do well to describe those within our community at all.  Even though labels have changed and many have been added over the years...it takes time to process and understand just who we are as individuals.   Labels aren’t as important to me as they once were but it does give me a sense that there are others out there like myself and that’s comforting. It may even help us to accept ourselves knowing that our identity is real and valid. If you were like me growing up, you may have thought you were alone in your identity especially without that label describing youself. Understanding that this isn’t the case any longer, helps us bridge that gap between knowing we are different from most but similar to some others out there.   You’ve come to a safe place to talk and share with others about these kind of topics and many of your upcoming adventures. I hope to read more about what you and your journey as you march forward on your path. I wish you the very best. Warmest Regards, Susan R🌷

      Thank you @Shay and @Willow Farmer.   I've been looking at groupons for electrologists, nothing even close. So Chicago it is. lol Oh well! It's been a while since I've been to Chicago. I want ti get my face cleared, I hate shaving.

      Me too. Even though I can't make them look super girly now. Hopefully by the Christmas holidays I will be able to. I was planning on transitioning about this time next year, but that was also because I didn't plan on going to nail school till at least the fall this year, or March next year. That has been bumped up. As ill be done with school by the end of November.    If I finish school on time, and everything works out right. I'll be celebrating with my friends. I was going to do it in July for my birthday, but my birthday is in the middle of the week, and it feels weird celebrating a birthday days before or after, and December will have more meaning for many reasons. Hopefully I'll be doing nails for a living, I'll be living full time by then, and In December marks one year of hormones. So many more reasons to celebrate.

      Sorry Willow, It was all over the place for me for awhile as well. Praying it improves!   Hugs, Mike

      Have not experienced HRT, but I am on ADT for prostate cancer. I have heard many prostate cancer survivors complain about it, but when the T was gone, I realized I never want it flowing in my veins again! Looking forward to having E in a few months! I am feminizing without added estrogen and will be getting surgery in a little over a month.   Mike

      That would of course be a positive step.  Is it also a possibility to locate an experienced gender therapist (for example, before, during, after, or in place of your family counseling sessions)?  My spouse and I made it a point to jointly attend sessions with our gender therapist, and it was very helpful for both of us to learn from her long experience of working with couples working through gender issues.  It wasn't just about my spouse becoming better informed from an expert about gender concepts -- it also allowed me to better understand the dynamics of what my cisgender spouse was/is dealing with.  Family counselors often don't have direct experience with gender issues, which is why I'm mentioning this.   Astrid

      Well said, @ValerieRun I remember having the exact same thoughts after getting underway with HRT.  Now I'm in my 16th month and still feel it's absolutely the right decision.  There's no way I would want to go back to how I felt before (there's nothing fun about being depressed and angry).     Astrid

      Well had a knock down drag out again. With my son. My wife finally talked to someone a little more liberal than her Christian friend.  Still had a go. I actually left work.  The wife is talking family  counseling.  I am all for it. And told her so.   I am back at work now.  Doing as well as can be expected.    I will post some more later.   Kymmie 
    • ElizabethStar
      if it's any consultation my wife has forbidden me to change in front her. I have a feeling she will never bend on that.
    • ValerieRun
      A few weeks into HRT and I just knew what I experienced and felt was a much MUCH better outcome than alternative. There is absolutely no way I would want or even consider going back of my own free will. Whatever future holds it will be another journey forward 🙂

      Although I have an MSW and was once an LGSW on track for LICSW, I abandoned that path. I still work at the same agency, just in a different role. I was placed at a community mental health clinic for my internship and they hired me after.

      @ElizabethStar @KymmieL @Lexa83   Liz I think that is great the progress made at your wife’s birthday.  I thought my wife and I were moving in that direction too.  Signs and conversations were seeming to go in that direction.  Then this weekend hit.  First, she got upset because I changed for bed in front of her.  Then Saturday more SHTF.  I’ll never be ok, I’ve told you that!  I can’t look at you anymore.  And more.  This continued Sunday when I told her I wasn’t going to church.  We talked a lot on Sunday and today.  Things are better but this was my worst weekend in a long time.  Depression. Crying, fighting...  the whole gambit.   She did apologize.  I said it would be better for me if she didn’t suggest she was doing better about me and then explode.  She said sometimes she thought it be easier if I was full time but I pointed out I wasn’t because she didn’t want me out full time.   very difficult time.   Willow

      I have to drive 5hrs for everything trans---but I have found this gal locally who does fantastic electrolysis and she is fast!  She knows all the trans people, which she is quite protective of and that means I am also safe.   I have this grey-white beard hair too.   She is just a local gal that got a degree and understands how the world turns here.   She also is serving as my therapist, ha ha! My real one is 5+ hrs away and doesn't understand rural people that well.     Maybe you can talk the laser person into getting certified for electrolysis.   It is good money.      ---WILLOW---
