Dino Silone replied to Michael Lennox's discussion Career Help
"Forget about picking a career that you'll do for the rest of your life.  Expect to have to reinvent yourself several times over the course of your working life, maybe as often as once every five years. Helping people is a given - I…"

"This thread came back from the dead ... :) For virtual organs:  I just downloaded Ubuntu Studio linux and installed it, and it came with Aolus, which is a pretty impressive classical organ soft-synth, if you want to experiment..."

"I remember some of the "Rock School" stuff was pretty good for learning scales and licks back in the day.  Don't know if that stuff is still around."

Dino Silone replied to Teresa Capistrant's discussion Has anyone heard if Vice Magazine and Gavin Mcinnes?
"+1 Is it manly at all to whine about how society is so anti-manly?  It's really mind-boggling for me to read all the BS on the internet that tries to portray white males as victims in America.  I'm a white male, and I think…"

Dino Silone replied to James Head's discussion Manliness. Doe's it matter?
"I think it's wrong to generalize about women in the corporate world.  Sometimes, we tend to look at successful women, and view the traits that contributed their success through a magnifying lens.  It's not that the woman who gets…"

Dino Silone replied to Cody's discussion The Voice of Experience
"I was a wise-ass kid, hanging out with a crowd of wise ass kids.  There was a playground in the neighborhood, where my grandfather and a bunch of other old Italian men would sit around on the "old man bench", talk, read the paper,…"

Dino Silone replied to Jesse Dijkstra's discussion Of Rings and Watches
"Those do look fairly simple to me - basically bands, with some decoration.  I've seen lots of wedding rings like that.  But my "objection" was really more of a joke - If you like them, you should wear them. "

Dino Silone replied to Ben's discussion Is it possible to change your personality?
"You're not talking about changing your personality, you're talking about changing your behavior and some habits.  Sure it's possible. "

Dino Silone replied to James Head's discussion Manliness. Doe's it matter?
"I think that's the prevalent opinion.  Bottom line is that the most unmanly thing you could be is afraid of competent, successful women. "

Dino Silone replied to Jesse Dijkstra's discussion Of Rings and Watches
"Interesting comments on the watch.  About the only thing I look for in a watch nowadays is being able to see what time it is without having to put on my reading glasses.  Almost the only time I use a wristwatch is when I'm traveling -…"

Dino Silone replied to Jesse Dijkstra's discussion Of Rings and Watches
"I like the watch.  The rings look a little too much like wedding rings to me.  I'm terribly allergic to them."

Dino Silone replied to Bob Farvour's discussion Shaving Mug Question in the group Real Shaving
"I just use an oversized, wide coffee cup (or maybe it's a soup bowl with a cup handle?) that I got at a yard sale for a quarter or so.  The wide width relative to the height really helps build up lather. I don't worry about the…"

Dino Silone replied to Aaron Wilson's discussion How much cologne should one wear?
"I'd go out on a limb and say to never wear any at work.  One man's Garden of Earthly Delights is another man's Garbage Barge on a Hot Summer Day.  You really lose credibility if you're making people's eyes tear…"

New Jersey is the land of the Greek diner, so it should not be too hard to find some serving up gyros, spanikopita, moussaka, and baklava!

I don't know any other Greek musicians here, unfortunately. But it's almost better that you're more interested in modern Greek culture since most members are more familiar with ancient Greece. But we always need a healthy dose of modern Greek culture to talk about. Speaking of which... I'm hungry for a gyro now...

Good Day,

How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on:( johnyoofi12@yahoo.com.hk ) for the full details.

Have a nice day

Thanks God bless.

Mr.John.
