Re: CBA beginners or experienced players

Makes no difference...its up to you to chose wether you peek or not.... I have both....but absurdly the one with the cross hatch feel keys on is also the one with black and white keys...

Re: The Shape of Water

Nice soundtrack....some one described the movie as a cross between Amelie and the Creature from the Black Lagoon. Personally I was disappointed but only perhaps because Gulliermo del Toro's last film Pans Labyrinth was such a surreal and terrifying experience ...think Tarantino gets hold of a fairyt...
