Groop I implore thee...
« on: June 07, 2017, 07:15:13 PM »
Evening all, long time no post.  I realise then that coming to you now, cap in hand, with brows furrowed in a transparent attempt to ask a favour might not be the best means in which to return after such an absence.  Notwithstanding all of that, I come to you now, cap in hand, with brows furrowed in a transparent attempt to ask a favour.  More Brass Neck than Phantom Eyebrow, me.

My nephew has recently taken up the drums and he has made it into a competition on Radio Nova (a radio station popular here for playing rock music in its various incarnations) to win himself a drum kit.  This would make the young fella's year and so I am here to ask those of you who do the Facebook thing and who are of a mind to do so, to click on the link below and click Like for Darragh (for that is he)

Thanks to any and all of you who do so.

TPE, it's good to see your hairy brow re-gracing FR! If I was one that gronked Facebook, you'd have my vote...alas Facebook and I don't get along...something about my drinking habits or whatnot...

Me, I'm over the age limit. I'll tell my daughter, though.

Facebook and I generally don't get along, but in this case, I can make an exception.

I dusted off my FB account to vote. I liked the sound your lad had in his video.

BTW, I was amused at the foresight of the parents of the kid who put his drum set in a soundproof room.

Thanks for the replies all!   :thumbup:

DJ:  no worries my fine fetid friend, I'm not normally one for the social meejah myself. 

Daglob, Cyber and Stumpy:  Thanks very much for your support!  Its been a real game of ebb and flow over the course of the past few days but we're hopeful that with one last push over the cliff Darragh can get the win! 

Any more votes / likes greatfuly received!

Lovely stuff, thanks Mikey.  Every like counts as they say.

I believe the competition ends this evening (or possibly tomorrow morning); he's in the lead but the margin is closing.  Any last minute likes would be greatly appreciated!   :thumbup:

I don't see how they can have any grounds for complaint here, the lad is a burgeoning talent and, with these lessons, can only improve his craft.  If anything, they should be progressively more delighted with time!

(Also, I gather that these may be some form of cleverly constructed devices which are electrical and/or electronic in nature, thereby allowing the sound to be relayed through speakers or headphones.  I may have imagined this though.)
