Death to Santa
« on: December 25, 2014, 04:32:43 PM »
A curse on all those stupid people who get themselves into debt so their horrible brats can have the latest gadgets.

A pox on Christmas.

Have to agree with thal on this one. Being Jewish, I really don't understand the connection between the birth of your savior or whatever you call him (or Him?) and loading your children up with expensive electronics.

Wow, when I saw you had replied to my thread, I thought I was in big trouble, but you agreed with me.

Now after that can you ever dispute the power of Christmas to spread good will?  ;)
Pieces under work now: Franck op 18, Bach Sinfonia nr 9 and P&F a minor book 2.
Wait...no Scarlatti? Must add something soon...

Indeed not. I had asked santa for this: http://www.findajo.co.uk/#/pietsch-mastervox-7-art-deco/4587139597

As far as I am concerned, he is an arse.

Gee, and on sale at a mere 7000 quid.

Gold plated, Swarovski crystal inlay - a bit kitsch, don't you think?
