Hey Man I gave the number a ring and midway through leaving a message it booted me off...any how if your still in Ottawa give me a ring on my cell any time...or if you pass back through here again give me a heads up and Ill be around.
i heard you dropped my advice like a rotten tlayuda and went to miracle mile against my judgement, and was rewarded kindly for it. i'm back on the road with my car, will see you in the bay, tal vez? a la verga, amigo
Haha yeah Ive hopped when I was younger for shits and giggles without a scanner, but now I have time restraints. Definitely helps me IDing trains, plus listening for a defect detector. I dunno, their worth their weight if your riding GMs.
Well if you ever find yourself around my neck of the woods, I can kick you down a cheapy scanner if you feel like givin em a try.
That's fantastic, what sort of music do you usually play?
I must confess, that I am pretty envious of your friend; I hope one day I will be able to study music/language/culture in eastern Europe, as well. Percussion is definitely a different ball game, especially with Romanian music. They have the most daunting time signatures and changes. This kid I met is a mastermind with it on accordion/clarinet/piano, you should check out his band, The Petrojvic Blasting Company. They play everything in between Dixieland jazz and Balkan traditionals. Really great guys.
Terribly sad about Kinga. I never met her, but feel a connection even with her pictures. I just couldn't stop crying, reading about her death. Just her family's and friends' reactions... Made me think of my own family. Thank you for sending that to me though. It's stories like this that make me feel incredibly lucky to be alive.
