Joe Satriani? I agree, he's an outsanding guitarist. I also like Joe Petrucci and Yngwie Malmsteen. Chris, have you seen G3 performing?

you're right. i am forcing myself to try to talk with kind of British accent, but you cannot learn it without few months spent in UK.
and when i'm at work, i mostly use this sort of Slavic english with hard "rrr", "t", "a" and so on. why? because my cooperators often don't know enough english to understand somebody talking it fluently. when i'm talking to French, then i intentionaly make grammar mistakes just to make them understand me

Only on DVD. But I've been to a Joe Satriani concert twice

Tomorrow, if my dad doesn't need to use his car for anything, I'll be able to borrow it. If I can get the camera set up properly, I'll make a video of one of Sydney's motorways - otherwise, I'll just take some pictures.

I told them about types of crash barriers including 'egg cutters'

Well, I speak mixed Polish accent with Barnsley dialect what must make a dodgy combination... It wouldn't suprised me if I have difficulties in communication outside this area

I talk most foreignish when I do speeches or presentations, but when I chat with friends I talk much more in Barnsley. I spent here about 2,5 year and I don't see much of BBC-style English

I used to watch the Eredivisie in English but right now it's only on a spanish-language channel in the US.

Do they broadcast the Eredivisie in the US? That surprises me.

I never watch sports on TV. Boring, and I can't find the discipline to watch a whole game.

Well, I don't watch much TV anyway. Mostly DVD's like movies or Friends.

I don't watch many live matches either. I do often watch the Eredivisie on Sunday evening, where you see the goals of 9 matches in an hour. I also watch ice-skating (not that much today; monday I have a chemistry exam )

Yeah, never say "I thought you didn't...", or worse "I thought you hadn't..."

I like to watch ski jumping though. I don't care that Adam Małysz is not in a great form, you can't sustain it forever.

Others are good. Austrians are ruling currently...

Dutch football is not as popular as the bigger leagues- but I think it translates well on TV because they have good crowds and the grounds keep them close to the pitch- I hate watching a lot of the Italian games, even though it's a quality league- because of all those running tracks that keep the fans a mile away from the action.

You can clearly see the motorways there aren't connected with the general motorway network, like the A31, the A270 and the A261
