1) french cuisine
that's all i've got
Bought by people who also buy Smeg fridges (see below)
like pop musicians or entertainers or whatever
Or Madge. Dunno, Elvis is probably the gold standard for culturally appropriated 50s rock'n'roll.
Gold standard for lager? Well no, it's not really a lager. Gold Standard for ale? Clearly not, it's American.
imagine reading that
And what a book.
Hendrick's, Tanqueray, Bombay saff
See you guys in a bit
Just the frequently referenced 'best value' all purpose mic. Mainly for people who can't afford to Pomplemouse 11 grand every time they play a gig.
Studio workhorse, cheap as chips.
It's certainly the industry standard.
but I guess he's pointing out that gold standard and standard are technically two different things. The gold standard car is presumably a Rolls Royce or a Ferrari or something; the standard car is probably a VW Golf or something.
the SM58 is certainly held up as the best mic to buy if you want to buy a mic. But there's a bunch of fucking stupidly pricey bullshit mics out there that someone will claim to be the BEST ever gold standard, that actually don't really do much.
Right, now I'm off to have a shower.
The Neumann U47 or 87 although with mics it is kinda stupid as type/purpose is so important no one mic could fill it.
very agreeable up in here
Microphone gold standard would beeeeee Neumann 87. But that one is a justified standard (if you like vintage sound).
So. Sorry Royter, you cunt.
Great work pre-emptively throwing a hissy fit about other people's imagined hissy fits though. Almost back to your best.
have a shit day
A gentleman should have a Patek philippe or nothing at all.
My marshall is defo my favourite amp, which is surprising as I have owned a few I ended up hating over the years before I found my favourite.
In general true though.
they have, somewhere in all of there, a very good collection of great amplifiers.
And yet they put out about 100 models, all of which look the same, none of which sound the same. And most of which are shit.
It's the same with Fender (guitars and amps) and Gibson (guitars, they quit while they were ahead with amps)
The Marshall which I currently have is a '67 Super Bass, which is glorious but also pricey and collectable. In their new offerings there is actually some decent stuff which is well priced but too many random pieces of shit which ride on the name.
Fender is also very hit and miss. I love my strat but it took me years to find the right one and in the end up I settled on a colour I hate because I love the sound, playability.
I was the same with Tele. In theory I liked the sound on records I loved, but everything I tried felt like dogshit until finally got one that worked and now don't leave it alone.
Amp wise I've got a very old prototype of the Haydn essex blonde, which was wired by the Matamp boys. It's kind of a weird one and heavy as balls. In the market for something easier to deal with at the mo.
Have a GT0 and a custom XV. both fantastic amps. The GT0 is heavy as fuck though.
Would never by a fender guitar sight unseen, the quality control is terrible these days so you need to play the exact instrument you are buying. Congrats on finding your tele
and they had broken selector switches, dodgy shielding. And that was what they were sending to be *reviewed*. God knows what went out into the market, as if they hadn't had enough damage done to the brand in the 70s ffs.
The oversized headstock, the 3 bolt neck joint. Pity that neck joint caused all sorts of problems and the guitars are massive hit and miss. People list them for like 5 grand on ebay too just because ya know, Fender! Old! I suspect a lot of buyers remorse from there.
Honestly, I have problems recognising her particularly as she looks massively different every time I see her.
(Am in general terrible at putting names to faces.)
will figure out why on my next tea break.
The IMDB top 250.
Nah you're alright.
Daily Mail & Harru Laugh At Poor Queuing for Free Food; Soil Themselves
you can get in on Sheeldz patronising me about filling up cars in the basic thread. ;-)
we all knew you had no time for successful women, but this is a different world altogether
what is she the gold standard for?
But good champagne = definitely gold standard.
toto contro opinion alert
so a sparkling saumar, could be better than a champagne........so the standard is NOT gold standard.
i think imperial leather is the brand that i forget still exists more often than any other
the doors fall off them!
I think a lot of people get them these days because they saw them in interior design magazines back in the 1990s.
Was expecting something about 'one-day travel carding to the Ideal Home Show' or maybe 'middle England'.
And it's a fucking disgrace.
ahahahaha. best euphemism
Never been in one, but I imagine they're directly comparable to national express or megabus
It's shorthand for transport squalor
not even in the top 5 songs on that album
I'd rather almost any other type of egg
and there was no toy inside
requirement is that you are famous, NOT that you bring or advocate peace
a man of peace??
THE WORLD TURNED UPSIDE DOWN mate
heres the song
First saw this on chumbawumbas wonderful english rebel songs (had a do not pay more than £2.50 label on it)
Hahahaha...do they miss the irony.....its buy from £42.95 on here :D
Kissinger persuaded general Lon Nol to have a coup when Prince Sihanouk was out of the country, by persuasion that the US would support this, Lon Nol being more favourable to the US military adventure......this was unpopular in more rural areas and led to escalation of targets for US in cambodia, to not just be anti vietnamese forces but also anti Lon Nol elements.....having common enemies polarised and confused.....but the United States armed forces unleashed hell on areas of cambodia (and laos, but that has its own different politics). part of this maelstrom helped forge the utter ruthless determination and willingness of the rural youth to follow pol pot (of course this is a simplification) but kissinger relayed those infamous words to say, bomb with everything we can.
On a country that the US was not at war with.
Kept secret, not only from the US public, but also lying and keeping it a secret from the US senate.
That is a pretty fucking horrendous thing, to do........and then to have a nobel peace prize :D
so perhaps we should just forget the reputation of the thing itself
British Gas, BT, etc
Every Royal Mail van I see these days is scraped or bashed in. Reckon they're all having rally races in their empty warehouses.
(dunno about this one, would appreciate feedback)
they're decent enough
(NB I bought some technical trousers the other day)
How are they?
Waterproof, elasticated PLUS belted, loads of pockets INCLUDING secret pockets, zips everywhere....trouser heaven.
how many clips to attach things on that you will never ever use?
My mate used to have some that unzipped above the knee so you could wear them as shorts, like WHENEVER you wanted.
right half of body in the sun, left half in shade. you could just unzip one leg.
Can't wait to pair them with my fleece beanie, technical jacket and walking boots. Going to be so fly, Sites of Special Scientific Interest won't know what's hit them.
what brand did you get? I have a some West Country walking coming up.
(ie no idea)
of how out of control fame and fortune can manifest then you're bang on. Almost 40 years since the King shat himself to death and no-ones topped his achievements.
Just for the fame/fortune/out of control bit BTW NOT the Gold Standard thing he was very good
Tesco do an own brand that costs roughly the same but is miles better.
However, 'fairy Platinum' is the best washing up liquid. Platinum standard, you might say.
