Re: Music while you walk

The examples you gave in the same post were your opinion. The examples I gave are examples others have made, for example music critic Fiona Shepherd (Bon Jovi) and music critic Kevin Maidment (Pink Floyd). As I say, I'm only reporting the news not making it. Fair enough, although I'm not sure how I...

Re: Music while you walk

You asked for an explanation. All I did was provide it - I cannot claim creation of it and should not be credited with it. If you dislike the term fair enough, go to a Pomp Rock Facebook page (they exist) and tell them all about it, as much detail as you like. The explanation was fine, thanks. The ...

Re: Music while you walk

Yeah, Wish You Were Here and Slippery When Wet are basically the same thing :? You get variance within any genre, be it a musical genre, film genre, game genre. Indeed one would hope for it. Public Enemy and Vanilla Ice are both in rap genre, BUT... Well, if you are determined to put simplistic lab...

Re: Music while you walk

To be radical and get back on topic... I will often listen to audiobooks (and occasionally music) if I'm alone or on a walk I've done before (with headphones). I certainly wouldn't subject others to this, though. I had this misfortune last year of camping in Coire Uaigneich (Blaven) and having my ea...

Yeah, it was not a term I was familiar with but, if it has a Wikipedia entry, it must be real :wink:. I'm just going to disagree that Pink Floyd fit the category (with, perhaps, the exception of A Momentary Lapse of Reason)

Re: Music while you walk

Ok, I'll bite... What is "pomp-rock"? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pomp_rock Pomp rock emerged from progressive rock, it's less intricate and more suited to stadiums. Pink Floyd (Dark Side onwards), Queen, Dire Straits, Collins-fronted Genesis, Bon Jovi, Nickelback, INXS, Fleetwood Mac, ...

Re: Music while you walk

I loathe Pink Floyd and other manifestations of pomp-rock. Ok, I'll bite... What is "pomp-rock"? I think weedavie means Prog Rock, i.e. 'progressive' (in its day) rock - Yes, Pink Floyd, Genesis, ELP, etc. Pomp-rock is less easily defined but often includes bands like Boston, Toto, Foreig...

Re: Scrambling Boots and shoes

You don’t need anything special unless you’ve been reading too many magazine articles? Unless on the cuillin , I use old skanky footwear as the gabro destroys it. Not sure I agree with that. I've used various approach shoes, trail shoes, walking boots, winter boots and can certainly notice the diff...

Re: Phoineas Hill and that elusive trig point!

It's worth bashing on for a few hundred metres past the trig to reach the hill fort and some lovely natural woodland on the northern slopes.

Aye, but you can't get a beer at the top.

Re: LightWeight double sleeping bag ??

Nothing readily available in the UK but we have used a Big Agnes: Cabin Creek for many years for both car camping and backpacking. The King Solomon is the down version which is lighter but more expensive - https://www.bigagnes.com/Gear/Sleeping-Bags/Doublewide . You would need one of the 15degree ve...

To be fair, I'd pay a small fine to get out of Motherwell for the day.

Re: Complex question about everythig

1. Online independent shops are usually good value, but I use GoOutdoors, Tiso, Cotswolds etc as well. Depends on who has what I want at the time at a price I'm willing to pay. Mind you, I very rarely buy anything other than gas for the stove. Hats, gloves, fleeces, baselayers, trousers, socks can a...
