Re: Better writer than speaker

Agreed. I was on the debating team at high school, most of the debates in the senior years were impromptu or limited-prep. My arguments were usually okay, but they never sounded as coherent or convincing as I would have liked. Writing was a breeze in comparison. That being said, on the odd occasion ...

Re: Films

I'm a bit of a film addict, so I won't be able to fit all my favourites in this post! 'Doubt' is indeed a good film; compelling and well acted. I'm a big fan of Michael Haneke and Todd Solondz, and have seen most of their films. 'Cache' Haneke's best and 'Happiness' is Solondz best, in my opinion. B...

Re: Hello from NZ

All good mate, I miss stuff like that all the time. I find reading on screens more difficult than on paper.

Re: I'm struggling to play melodies with both hands at the same time on my keyboard, advice?

I have exactly the same problem. Five years worth of lessons yielded little progress. I find that if the melodies have the same rhythm, or only break rhythm for little arpeggios that fit within a right hand crotchet or whatever, I can struggle through them. But anything with divergent rhythm does my...

Re: Are you a messy eater?

I could stand to be corrected on this. for example is driving a nail in to something fine or gross? or perhaps a combination? I think you're right; it's both. Holding the nail steady is fine and aiming / timing the swing of the hammer is gross. I'm not much of a messy eater but I am loud, or so I'm...
