    Default (Return of) The Well CXXI: Chris of Arabia - fire 'em in...

    Having been invited to re-start the 2014 edition of The Well, I present myself here before you for cross-examination. This could go many ways I suspect, but let's give it a go. I stand ready for your most searching questions regarding yours truly...

    Are you now - or have you ever been - a member of the Conservative party?

    Hi Chris,

    Here's a few more to start:

    - What are the last five albums you purchased/downloaded/listened to?

    - Mac OS or Windows user?

    - What other hobbies do you pursue other than playing music?

    - Here's a chance to brag a bit about yourself: are there any particular talents or skills you possess that make you stand out from others?

    - Is there any particular quote or credo you live your life by?

    [QUOTE=Great_Kazoo;3752490]Hi Chris,

    Here's a few more to start:

    In the last couple of days, I can actually account for 7 in total, 3 download and 4 vinyl

    Simple Minds: Real to Real Cacophony, Empires & Dance, Sons and Fascination - all on download

    Led Zeppelin: Houses of the Holy. Pink Floyd: Dark Side of the Moon. Foo Fighters: Sonic Highways. Smashing Pumpkins: Monuments to an Elegy - all on vinyl

    For the most part, Windows, it's what I work with, and what I'm used to. At home though, I'm using iOS devices more and more.

    Quote Originally Posted by Great_Kazoo View Post

    Photography mainly. I dabble a bit with web design and a Linux server I put together. Other than that, a bit of reading, a lot of sleeping, and an increasing amount of looking for my two kittens

    An ability to try and become in some way competent at most things I put my hand to.

    I think it safe to say I haven't. I did once take the muscle off the back of the leg of an RAF civilian instructor once though - the drunken fool walked out from behind a tree, at night, onto an unlit road, wearing a long, dark overcoat, in the rain, and into the path of my Kawasaki Z250. I saw him no more than 5 feet ahead of me, which left no time for avoidance action, even if I was only doing about 20 MPH at the time.

    Not really until my late teens (18ish maybe), after I joined the RAF.

    Variation on a popular cliché:

    You wake to find your home well ablaze. Which AMPLIFIER do you save?

    Most likely the Trace-Elliot Speed Twin. All the others can still be acquired new, the Speed Twin would be rather trickier.

    Where's the one place in the world that you've been to that you'd like to stay in, and one place that you've never visited that you'd like to?

    Where's the one place you'd never want to go back to?


    Do what I do. Hold tight and pretend it's a plan!

    How long will it be before you stop working in "BFE" and settle down, and where will you choose to live when you're no longer working?

    Do you ever set your intellect aside and let your emotions rule?

    Do you own any guns?

    Have you ever in your life engaged in a fist fight?
    I am so close to retirement that I could play in a band full time. All I have to do is improve my playing, learn some songs, and find some other musicians more talented than me who will do exactly as they're told. .

    As an Englishman (read:relatively liberal), what is the hardest part of living and working in Saudi Arabia?

    And when(if ever) do you foresee yourself being done with Saudi and moving back to England on a permanent basis? (Or do you see yourself moving elsewhere?)
