    Here's what happened on the market today, thanks to Mr Insightful above. The ASX took a bath. The red is a fall in a stock's price - the deeper the fall, the redder the square on the map:

    And here's some context, because context is everything. First, the same index over the last 10 years, then the same index over the last 20 years (that massive peak and trough in the middle is the rise and fall of the global financial crisis).

    There’s a biography coming out next week, which is why I’m guessing you posted vids of SRV.

    Check this out. Just got out of bed, hung over, wearing what looks like his mums dressing gown, not warmed up.


    I know jack shit about playing music, but that tone and how clean it sounds are unreal.

    Johnny Winter and Rick Derringer both playing on this. Ace. And is a good album. Shit title for an album, but still a good album.

    Yeah, wow, I didn't know there was a bio coming out. Sigh... he died so young - and so atypically for a rock star... apparently none of the guys in the helicopter the crashed - including the pilot - had any substances in their systems. How tragic is that... dying sober and clean.

    I just strayed across these vids during the unconscionable amount of time I spend watching virtuoso players. You're right about SRV - he had his own sound (as well as being immaculate in the clarity of that tone). Budding blues guitarists who wanna play Texas blues must have SRV licks in their repertoire.

    Another one who had a great tone was Carlos Santana. Then somewhere along the line, I reckon in the 1980s, he fucked it all up. Dunno what happened. Shit producer, window licker guitar tech, changing equipment, but somehow he lost that beautiful tone.

    Speaking of Pink, I strongly suspect she knows what vag tasted like

    It was just an observation. An observation that she looks like a lezbotron bulldyke
