    About the only decent shot; myself, YaYa, Stim and SynthOrange after eating Lord Of The Fries

    Synth looks so SMUG.
    Also YaYa looks a lot younger than I expected.

    I don't think anyone else mentioned it, but Ten has pretty big hands. I've never seen anyone else with hands that big.

    I'm not saying you're a freak of nature, Ten, but... you know.

    You know what they say about big hands... :winky:

    Also my big hands and thus big fat fingers are my excuse for not being able to play guitar

    I do hope to learn to play piano with them though

    piano is both fun and super easy to start with Ten

    I heartily endorse you learning it

    if you can read music you're halfway to being not-shitty too

    I think my current singing teacher also teaches piano, so once I'm done with the album I'll probably hit her up for piano lessons

    Might buy a piano too

    We can probably do one early next year

    I'll have to run it past the wife and make sure she's happy to have internet people in the house

    I don't forsee that being an issue though

    "Internet people". Finally, I belong somewhere!

    In regards to piano, so long as your fingers aren't too fat (they didn't look fat), you'll be fine. Long fingers are good for piano. If you play piano enough when you're young, your fingers lengthen by themselves. That's what happened to me and my brother.

    Absolutely is. Just take a look at any long-term pianists' fingers. You also get it with violin players (Paganini's a great example of this). I've been playing piano since I was five, so my fingers are a bit longer than average. There was one time when I was in the local string orchestra on second violin that one of the ladies from the local orchestra told me that I had good, long fingers and I should try playing the viola.

    you realize this doesn't actually prove anything, right? since long fingers are important to the ability to play the piano really well, really good piano players are likely to have long fingers. not because their fingers grow longer than normal as they play, but because those with naturally short fingers didn't stick with the piano as long, on average, as those with long fingers.

    so I also have a hard time believing playing piano will actually lengthen your fingers. I'm sure it increases your hands' reach, but that's also gonna happen when you improve your fingers' ability to spread apart, not just when they get longer. has there actually been a good study done on this? googling didn't help me any.

    Yeah. It would make sense - violas are usually a good couple of inches longer than violins, and the strings would have to be longer.

    Yes, I do realise that. Perhaps I should be more detailed: the lengthening of fingers tends to happen with those who play piano when they're younger. Of course, their fingers will grow naturally, but I read some study years back about how playing the piano consistently (and with proper technique) when younger will result in the fingers lengthening (and, of course, strengthening) more than they would if piano weren't played.

    Dammit, I can't find the article anymore. And yeah, googling isn't helping. :(

    ACMI'd probably be a safe bet. Might be wise to check out That's Melbourne to see if there are any other decent events going on. I think there's some kind of street art thing on all around the CBD for three days (can't remember which three days). I'm quite annoyed that I can't remember what it's called now.

    The Aquarium sounds great

    But is this a date

    or a "I will go but I don't do boyfriend and girlfriend"

    Because if it is the second one that means you are free to keep looking and by all means should on principal, it's what she deserves
