Except that it was previously legal to make recording off the radio for your own use. Since then major changes have been made to copyright law which means even thinking the word copy has now been made illegal.

Sailing a large boat on a small lake is very tacky.

Re: Is flying a pirate flag lame?

My Mom would walk in my room and say "What are you doing ?"

And then shake her head, turn around walk out and shut the door, sobbing quietly....

Re: Is flying a pirate flag lame?

many a mother has been left in dispair as her son is spending time in the pokey.


and everyone knows you don't want to be hiding your booty, in the pokey

======

How is it everyone of a certain age recorded songs on the radio ( and didn't seem to care about the quality) and had someone talk while they did so..

Re: Is flying a pirate flag lame?

Pokey n booty.... well that might be okay with some... but the day... the day that Gumby came home early...

It didn't end well.. and when I say 'end well' I've said too much.. Let's just say the cross bones were not at half-mast

Yeah, and me and my wife lived together for a couple years before we got married, and that was OK...

Now my daughter wants to move in with her boyfriend... And that's Not OK...

What's your point..?

I hope your mother walked in the room and had a conversation similar to:

Like my mom did

It always made the recording more entertaining for my friends.
Wait, you recorded music from the radio with a microphone?!? I used to just grease up the tape deck, plug it into the stereo's output, and let her rip. The biggest challenge was to get to the pause button before any commercials started playing. That and hope that the DJ would shut the hell up and not talk over the music.

Good times.

Oh, and Pirate flags are only a little bit lame. If anything, having a fat, rich, white guy on his yacht fly a pirate flag should be seen as at least comically (if not tragically) ironic.

Lastly, I cannot believe this thread is still alive. Hey OP, are you still there? See what you did?!? Let this be a lesson to you. Next time, ask about gun rights, religion or politics; you know, something less inflammatory than pirate flags.

I don't think the original poster has logged on in almost six years He joined in July 2010, and last post was Oct. 2010

I had high quality Radio Shack microphones that cost $2.47 each (I'm guessing)

And you are right.. there has been some serious bickering on this thread

Re: Is flying a pirate flag lame?

Not sailing, but rafting once in our personal rig we got a serious talking-to by local law enforcement on the San Juan River. They nearly confiscated our numerous pirate flags we had flying from the grab line around the raft. Take from that what you will; personally I won't be flying them again.
