What Would You Like For Chistmas?

Discussion in 'Off-Topic Chat' started by CaharleyFarley, Nov 10, 2003.

  1. Maybe you are stuck wondering what to buy someone for Christmas, or are even wondering what you would like for yourself (so that appropriate hints can be so innocently dropped) :roll:

    If I could make a suggestion......

    I have spent time over the weekend reading "Embuchure Enhancement" Roddy Lewis (alias Roddy o-iii<O, Emb - Enh) and carrying out some of his "tests".

    The books have been a been a "revelation" to myself, and can only describe the effect of them as EXCITING!

    Roddy goes to lengths to explain that the books "do not promote an embouchure change" and are "designed not to interfere with what a teacher might be trying to inculcate into the student"

    For myself, I say that the books educate the reader as to exactly what is really going on re Lip Vibs, Airflow etc........and somehow the reader discovers for him/herself the optimum playing method.

    PS I have never met or spoken to Roddy, or received any lessons from him (but that will soon change).

    To experience a taste of how Roddy can help - just check some of his posts here on tMP

    Well, for those who don't know what to buy a loved one, may I suggest the latest release from tHB, due out early December (I think)

    Christmas is Coming featuring tHB with Lucy Rhodes (Radio 2 Choirgirl of the Year 2002).

    A bargain price (which I think is a tenner??!), some new arrangements by Mr. Mute - pour the mulled wine, eat a mince pie and enjoy!

    I wouldnt mind David Blaines plastic box, so I could soundproof it and mount it on the back of a pickup so I can start my mobile practice room business :)

    For Christmas I would like....
    * A new car (that the exhaust isn't broken on and the radio works or one
    that doesn't look like an ice-cream van)
    * Some money (to give to Mr Bank Manager)
    * Some chocolate coins, a few nuts and a satsuma

    Thanks x

    Haveing read through some of roddy's site, (havent had a look at any of his books........yet!), i can say that there are lots of tips to help in all sorts of problems. if the books are even half as goodthey should be cracking.

    looking forward to ordering one to.

    ive also had a few emails off him, and he's definately not from america!(hell know what i mean!)
    will be ordering a book soon dude!

    For the world to move away from the huge commercialism that is Christmas. I hate the pressure of having to buy presents for distant family that I never see, spendng money that I don't have and receiving stuff from other people that I don't really want or need.

    Much better that people get together to celebrate and have a good time without the financial pressures.

    I suggest that everone who was going to buy presents should instead offer thier time/help instead. (Why not offer to mow the lawn 10 times for your parents, eh???).

    We'd all be much happier, and closer to the true Christmas message.

    What do I want to get for Christmas? Drunk!

    But seriously folks, my girlfriend keeps taunting me with 'I've already got your Christmas present' without actually telling me what it is! (I haven't got hers yet but you but we'll keep that between us, OK? :wink: ), so I'll just have to wait and see! Bearing in mind she lives some 450 miles away from me, there's not much chance I can sneak a peek as to what it might be!

    Was that a quarter of humbugs you wanted, Mike? :lol:

    I'm only kidding. I'd prefer to strike a balance between the two (bearing in mind I have 3 brothers, 4 sisters, 10 nephews and nieces.... that's not 10 each, though!) I do see where you're coming from, Mike. I do feel guilty sometimes when I get a present from an unexpected quarter, knowing that I didn't get THEM one. Don't know about mowing the lawn 10 times in the middle of winter, though!

    A few of us got together every Christmas morning for a few years and went round SE London hospitals to play carols to the patients. (I remember the first time we did this! There were 8 of us converging on the now derelict Hither Green Hospital in Lewisham. Ss we struck up the first few bars of our first carol, 'Hark! The Herald Angels Sing', a patient banged on his wall and shouted 'Shut that ****ing row up!' :shock:
