Anyway, I refuse to be sold as part of Horace's money making plans, I demand a deal like Norway has with the EU. Honestly, he started by persuading the poor, innocent farm animals into the recording studio and when nobody stopped him he has the same plans to exploit us poor innocent forumheads. Does he care that Sony will probably make us include Justin Bieber and blimmin' Mariah Carey in our discussions? You bet he doesn't! All he wants is another exotic car on his drive....shocking
I'm off to paint a protest sign
It's all good entertainment, it doesn't cost a penny
I'm with Uno on that one, I will start painting my own protest sign too. Horace's moneymaking plans are an out-of-control bulldozer that won't stop no matter how many farm users or forum animals get ran over. We used to be a virtual family here, and instead we are bound to become sheer numbers in the greed mechanisms of the cold an inhuman Sony corporation. Indignant!
March 3, 2017 – Sony Interactive Entertainment (SIE) today announced the purchase of Horace Wimp's ELO Fan Forum for the tidy sum of 1,000 pounds. Executive Deputy President and CFO, Kenichiro Yoshida, had this to say about the acquisition and the transition to new ownership.
"We plan to phase out Jeff Lynne and replace him with Sony Entertainment artist John Mayer. In doing this we believe the forum will appeal to a much wider audience. We will further enhance the new brand by introducing a backup band for Mr. Mayer consisting of finalists - yet to be confirmed - from The Voice and American Idol. This band will come with the uplifting and inclusive new moniker The Eclectic Life Orchestra. We're very excited about the revamped SONY's Jon Mayer Forum and look forward to a long and fruitful relationship."
£1000 may not be much to you Helmut but look at it as beer and curry nights. It must equate to at least 25 nights out, that's nearly half a year at one a week.
Hm... Looked from that point of view, it's true, 25 nights out in 6 months, that's quite a solid friendship. Heck, I was even about to have an emotional outburst until cold maths hit me...
...given that you are not selling just me for that price but the whole forum, wouldn't we have to divide that £1000 by all of those people? That would give us like one night of beer and curry plus one night of fish and chips (no beverage included) each.
The best therapy for any problem you might have is playing music with friends.
lasttrain929: Thank you eloneen, until yesterday I had never heard of these insects. They live a strange life. Not sure about Circada ice cream or pizza though, not for me.....

eloneen: Timeblue I hope you enjoy it! It was sunny and in the 90s here most of last week, with some rain. Today it's cloudy and barely making it into the 60s. Crazy NC weather! ::m1809::

orioles70: with warmer (HOT) weather, the cicadas have gotten noisy. A local news reporter used an app on her phone and said it registered in the mid 80s for dbs (hearing protection recommended). They're not quite that bad in my yard.

orioles70: I was driving to the dump today on a road called Beaver Dam Road when what should cross the road but a pair of beaver (mother and child). Guess they named that road well.
