I recently met Dave and he invited me out to this. Sounds like a ton of fun. I've never been to a DIY meet. So what's the deal? Everybody brings their latest, and we all listen? I'm really looking forward to it.

Hey Mike,

During the American Revolution, Ben Franklin was instrumental in getting the Navy to instruct their Captains that Vancouver was to be assisted if necessary, and under no circumstances was he to be attacked or hindered, because he "was a friend to all Mankind."

IIRC, wasn't Hawaii his last Port of Call?

Best Regards,
TerryO

Yes.

Some also show up to listen and go "Wow!"


Cheers!

Tux,

Before you make any decisions, you might want to look at the posted coverage of prior events. I've always felt intimidated (and frightened) at those events, but it's been my duty to bring both enlightenment and redemption to the Islanders.

Best Regards,
TerryO (Your Brother in Bose)

To put a bit of a fine point on things - bringing your latest "audio gear" = good thing. Bringing your latest flame - errrrrrrr - I would give that careful consideration.

Don't be scared. My older brother TerryO has spoken. That's enough for me.

Bring large speakers. These guys like things smaller than a coffin for some reason and we need more of that stuff.

The guys outside, enjoying a beverage or two beg to differ... well maybe that's just me.

Bringing your latest flame... it will be a good test of your relationship. Unless of of course she actually likes the overflow of testosterone

Cheers

Yes, I remember the ceremony where the Islanders (who were overstimulated from their native intoxicating beverage) were performing their pagan rituals with torches, in front of their Sacred Granite Altar.

Another time, one of the natives became so overcome with paganistic fervor, that he rushed around with a crowbar (another native fetish) and in the end destroyed a Chicken Coop. He probably needed a live Chicken, to sacrifice on the Granite Altar, as part of some sort of primitive ceremony. Even recently, several Salmon have been gutted and ritually cleansed near the former location of the Coop, to (evidently) appease and placate the Chicken Gods.

I'd believe that these atavistic practices are certainly worthy of a detailed study by any aspiring Cultural Anthropologist.

Best Regards,
TerryO
