... "Anaconda" (the "longest" squeezer on Concertina.net)?

No, can't use that, that's a mega Serpent ! (You know, like Colin Dipper plays !)

I do know.

 

But surely we can't be kept from any and all use of St. Patrick's rejects. What about "Box Constrictor"?

 

How about "Boxaholic" ?  :)

Oooh! ...... "Small Box Epidemic"! ?? :o

 

Got another! I'll use Edit to put it here, so it won't increase my count :): ..."Boxic Waste".

AND my 1001st, since that's what really starts a new millenium. :)

Surprise!! Neither 1000 nor 1001 was the next new-name turnover point. Well, that would have been rather soon after the last one, which I think was 800.

 

I wonder what it will be. Something even, like 2000? Something apparently random, like 2059? Maybe 1829,... or 1802?

Jim,

 

I REALLY liked the anaconda. But then I laughed myself silly with all the box variations you and everyone had.

You might like to know there really is a musical instrument called the Anaconda. It's not a squeezebox, unfortunately, but a contra-bass serpent. I've seen it, it's huge! It was built in the 19th century by 2 Yorkshire brothers - no-one knows why.

In my tuba-playing days I investigated getting hold of a serpent; if you really wanted to, you could commission an Anaconda from Christopher Monk instruments - though at £6.5k I'd rather spend the money on concertinas if I had it... :)

Oh my gosh. What a riot.

 

Never know what will happen when you put two brothers together with a bunch of tools.

 

Think I have to stop buying instruments for a bit. Love my Edgley. Got another used pa from Button Box.

 

Gotta love those free reeds.

Hi Rhomylly,

 

Sent you an email. Will call on Sunday. Have had laryngitis. Figured if I called you'd think it was an obscene caller.

 

The tina is superb. And now I can even open the hard case. Come on, it was a little tricky.

 

Yours is acomin. You'll get it before you know it.

Say Jim,

 

After a certain number, they start taking away numbers as you post. Or Ken wipes you clean and you start all over. Sorta like a speedometer.

 

THE BIG ERASURE.

 

So is your little light blinking in two places on the Stephen map?

Just let 'em try!! :angry:

"But officer, I can't have been doing 180. My speedometer only goes up to 150, and it was registering 30!"

Nope. I'm a full-time resident of Denmark, though I still have roots in America, especially musical ones.

Okay Jim,

 

I guess you scared Ken and he won't grab your points.

 

Gonna come back and check out your American musical roots any time soon?

Was back in the Pacific Northwest in December. Not at all sure when I'll manage it, again.
