The Pogues have a banjo - therefore because I am pro Pogue I am by default at least partially pro banjo.

Matt A

Cats play the banjo.

Dumb.

That cat isn't playing the banjo. Someone just placed that banjo on the cat to take a "funny" picture.

Did you laugh?

Besides, maybe the cat just finished playing. Ever think of that? It looks tired. Tired of playing such a dumb instrument.

Have you voted?



This poll stinks.

You wouldn't mess with Tom McManamon, he'd kick your ass (well if he hadn't died last year).

No, I didn't laugh. I said "awww" to myself because the kitty is cute, though.

Of course I voted. I can't help but vote in polls (I even voted in all those Prog Rock polls and I've only heard songs by Queen and Pink Floyd).

I voted "scmango" because it kinda looked like Scarmenga (or however you spell his name) and he was on SOUNDBOMBING 1 which also had the song "Til My Heart Stops" by RA The Rugged Man and 8-Off which I enjoy a great deal.

Why was RA The Rugged Man hanging out with Frank Henenlotter on the BASKET CASE extras? They buds or something?

Allison, as a resident of colorado...check out the Hillbilly Hellcats. Banjo rules!

Fred Adelman

Banjo's were put on this Earth to scare away leprechauns and sleeper cell bombers.

Therefore, banjos are good.

And Allison is a dickwad for not giving us a positive choice in the poll.

Some things just don't travel linguistically across the oceans, do they? I opened this thread expecting to read about Matt's newfound love of late Aussie poet laurette Banjo Paterson (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Banjo_Paterson)... :)

Banjo's are cool and they can be used to conceal weapons:

Shit. I haven't seen them in 8 years. They have a banjo now? I had a CD of theirs called "Rockin' with Taz", or something to that effect. Good stuff.

Do you know Kurt Ohlen, formerly of the Dalhart Imperials?

I do not. REV IT UP WITH TAZ features a great banjo intro to the first track, "Hilllbillies on Speed".

Be careful. Ever read "The Monkey's Paw"? That rib sammich might end up being your son's reanimated corpse.

I'd love to say banjo makes me nauseous...but when they start up that song in DELIVERANCE it makes me want to spontaneously break into an inbred two-step. Can't help it.

Actually, if you would pay attention to the clothing you'd realize that the invention of photography pre-dates the clothing styles seen in the drawing by nearly 50 years.
