Not in the clamor of the crowded street, not in the shouts and plaudits of the throng, but in ourselves, are triumph and defeat.--Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

REDIRECT ALERT! (Scroll down past this mess if you're trying to read an archived post. Thanks. No, really, thanks.)

Due to my inability to control my temper and complacently accept continued silliness with not-quite-as-reliable-as-it-ought-to-be Blogger/Blogspot, your beloved Possumblog will now waddle across the Information Dirt Road and park its prehensile tail at http://possumblog.mu.nu.

This site will remain in place as a backup in case Munuvia gets hit by a bus or something, but I don't think they have as much trouble with this as some places do. ::cough::blogspot::cough:: So click here and adjust your links. I apologize for the inconvenience, but it's one of those things.

I’m a’pickin’! And I’mmmm a’grinnin’!

It’s apparently time for an AXIS OF WEEVIL THURSDAY THREE MUSICAL!! How else to explain this suggestion from Jim Smith (not an alias) who says:

In honor of Larry learning to play the bass guitar, a musical Thursday Three:

1. What instrument do you play?

2. Which one do you wish you could play if time and talent were not involved?

3. Have you ever taken lessons for an instrument or voice and how did it go?

As with every other single episode of this diversion, ANYone is welcome to play along, even if you have no rhythm. Just leave your comments below, or a link to your blog entry, and we’ll all marvel at your astounding talent. Or not.

IN ANY EVENT, go off and practice your scales, and I’ll give you my answers.

NUMBER ONE--None. I can tap out a simple tune on a keyboard, but only if I have one of those songbooks for little kids with color- and letter-coded instructions. I can also play several guitar chords, but I don’t know which ones, and I can’t do it without having something to go by. So, no, I don’t play anything.

#2--I think it would be nice to know how to really play a guitar, or a banjo. Of the wind instruments, bagpipes. No, really. I'm serious.

III--Well, obviously I have never had any lessons in such things. So, I guess it went real good.
