It doesn't just stop at people smugglers, there are hundreds of asylum seeking children and teenagers placed in mandatory detention centres across Australia.

Re: how far along should I get a better bass guitar?

I was surprised by his answer because the first thing he said was it had to look cool! He said that if it didn't look cool, you wouldn't want to pick it up and practise it or be seen jamming with it... Blergh, what a crock. :rollno: See my post above, I'd happily rock my 'beginners' bass at stadium...

Re: how far along should I get a better bass guitar?

My 2c..... I don't think you need to spend up big for a decent bass. Like many here I've had my fair share of top shelf instruments including Rics & vintage Fenders but now 2 of my favorite players are cheapish used MIJ Fenders (including the one in my avatar). You can pick up a nice P or J for $70...

Re: Atelier Z M-245 Plus - How sweet is this!

Always wanted an Atelier Z, they sound frickin' sweet! Check out this video, it's long been one of my favourite bass clips on YouTube. I'm not sure the model of this bass in particular, but it is an Atelier Z. ps. before any heterosexual men get excited, let me inform you that this bassist is a guy!...

Re: Dear Australian Media

That's a bit harsh. Agreed, but: Should stupid kids go to jail? My boy is the same age and makes poor decisions all the time. Luckily he'll grow out of it and it's nothing serious. He did break the law in another country, where the punishment for drug possession can be as severe as 15 years behind ...

Re: Dear Australian Media

Well said, Brooksi. I don't read any of the stories regarding him but it pisses me off having to see them all every time I check the Australian section of Google News. One headline I saw was something like "Warm welcome home awaits Bali Boy". WTF, warm welcome from who? He can stay over there for al...

Re: What are YOU listening to right now?

Can't get enough of this song. Never payed much attention to Falconer before since I'd only heard their latest works which seem more generic thrash/folk orientated, stumbled across this track off their first album last night and I've listened to it dozens of times already. :) Nice big power metalish...

Re: NBD - Monterey MJB4

I picked up a Monterey P-bass in a small music store a few years ago and had a short jam on it. I was really surprised, it was actually quite a comfortable and well constructed bass. Congrats on the new axe. :)

Re: What are you eating ? And Why ?

Right now, eating some home-made biltong. That's South African dried meat (usually beef), similar to beef jerky though it's simply air dried rather than smoked. Why? Because it's a good late-night snack. For dinner I made a Portuguese style chicken burger. Really simple to make and they taste damn g...
