The Outpost Cafe / Blade Runner 2049

Anyone seen it...?
My expectations were stacked pretty high but (for me; maybe not you) pleased to say they were exceeded...
Big fan of the original so it had a steep hill to run up...

Well, as of this Friday, just gone, we signed off on the house we've been renting for the last 7 months which is now ours, excluding the 10% we owe the bank, which is all we needed to secure it...
Been somewhat distracted by the beauty of the Highlands, and the uncertainty of where we would be living, until we found out for sure the owner would sell, then all the fun of the legalese...

Done-and-dusted...

Beauty...? a 30 second exposure of a rather fine auroral display in early March, taken just outside our front door... that's one of our 15 pine trees... a fully mature Scot's pine, of which we have two...



Those of you who I call my friends, and you all know who you are, will be welcome to stay with us if you ever find yourself in the Highlands of Scotland... We're 2 miles off the main road down a single-track road and about 500' up with a clear view east, excluding the trees to the right of the house... 1/4 mile behind us is all forest up to the 1000' mark which is Ord Hill... the view's none to shabby... this was just before dawn back in September... presently trawling through the many thousands of pics I'm preparing to upload for a website...

Guitars Etc. / Oops... impulse purchase... silly price...
« on: April 02, 2016, 12:58:53 PM »
Bought a Squier Tele for £60, which is circa 1/3 UK retail, from a charity shop... needs a clean, a new set of strings, and a top for the pup selector... found one minor dent... that's it... perfectly set-up... made no sense to see this at this price nor where it was... had the same sort of luck with my black Jazz, which I picked up for £68 five or six years back...

The Outpost Cafe / To Boldly Go...

The Great Adventure begins...

To explore strange new worlds... (tickets bought... fly up in the next few days)
To seek out new life... (er... a rental whilst we source a new home)
These are the voyages of the Starship Highlander, Captain Kenny in command (you must be joking!), with wife, daughter, fourteen fish, and a small white fluffy alien that emanates an aura of cuteness...

Coming soon to a small screen near you...

Exchanged contracts yesterday afternoon and we leave our home of 23.5 years on 16th September and should be over the border on the 18th... dropped the (work) bombshell last night and it works out I have enough leave accrued to only have to work 6 days in the next four weeks... oops... my boss might react, but a fait-accompl is a fait-accomplii ...

In a time-honoured tradition, and quoting an old work colleague, verbatim... What's he going to do... sack me...? ;)

Anyway, I hadn't been into our local town for about a month or so and we like looking in the charity shops for a wide variety of items, so, when we walked into one of our regulars what should I spot but a GK Backline 115, priced rather reasonably at £80/$125...
Somewhat out of place, and no instrument to test the beastie so er... couldn't resist...



Tried out with the PC (Mud mode) and the fretless Jazz and very pleased with the results... heavy ol' son-of-a-Gallien though... :o



Surprisingly wide range of sounds and the beastie can certainly handle full Mud, with overdrive, and at volume...! :vader:
