Day off for Hodgie tomorrow, I think. Not only has he sustained serious online injuries but he's shamed himself by not knowing the meaning of 'overreaching'.

You obviously know nothing about music. You fire out a few 'overreaching' statements to sound knowledgeable and impress Clive, but your substance behind it is to copy one person's attempt at the chords if the song. You don't know (a) if it's correct, (b) when chord changes are overreaching.

The funny thing is, had you explained your thinking, it could have made for an interesting discussion. But you have no substance to anything you say.

And you seem obsessed with my job - you're really strange. Do you not have to keep busy in Carlisle?

Diamond Dog wrote:Definition of overreach
transitive verb
1 : to reach above or beyond : overtop
2 : to defeat (oneself) by seeking to do or gain too much
3 : to get the better of especially in dealing and bargaining and typically by unscrupulous or crafty methods
intransitive verb
1 of a horse : to strike the forefoot with the front part of the hind foot
2 a : to go to excess
b : exaggerate
3 : to overreach oneself


Okay - so which of those is Bowie "guilty of" here?

I'm guessing it can only apply to 2, 2a or 2b (but if I'm wrong please let me know).

So which were you referring to - and then we can have an adult debate about why you think there are ‘over readingchord changes'?

Thank you in anticipation.

The BCB Police took a thrashing yesterday 8-)

Mind you, they’re probably too busy with their proper jobs, girlfriends, lives - you know, adding some meaning to their existences.

It’s an approach that has certainly filled them with a playful joie de vivre.

You can always rely on Gash to come running when you need him, John. Now that Skope's gone he needs an Ozymandius.

The words 'circle' and 'jerk' spring to mind.
