    Fender Jag headstock decal source

    ‘Reproduce’ is a generous word. Loads of ebay/etsy waterslides look computer printed, with jaggy, blocky lines. A good decal looks precision ‘cut.’ Most fakes look fake.

    Brass Against- greatest publicity stunt ever

    Gimmick or not, they tackle some formidable covers, and seem like rather excellent musicians. That makes this all the stranger.

    Brass Against- greatest publicity stunt ever

    That was my point. I’d never heard of them. I checked them out on Spotify and they are top notch- especially considering what they cover. This whole incident just doesn’t fit— makes no sense at all. But it prompted me to discover them.

    Brass Against- greatest publicity stunt ever

    Just discovered Brass Against- the cover band I never knew I needed, thanks to the craziest publicity stunt this side og GG Allin. A SFW video—

    Bought a custom shop 59 reissue , do you think the 3,700 bucks extra is worth it ?

    I grabbed a 2014 R8 with a nice top for about $3000 used. That is so worth the money. It is in every way better than a Standard. In face, my lowly Tribute has the same playability and tone as my Standard. That all said, I would never pay new prices for a Reissue. Gibson had several rounds...

    What movie has the best soundtrack?

    I found the movie itself to be pure garbage. But that is just my opinion.

    What movie has the best soundtrack?

    You mean, like some striking union worker- angry that scabs were working the set?

    They're after Dave Chappelle again.

    Likewise, where is this ‘woke crowd?’ Normally I notice crowds, but who are these people? OK- I had a meeting on Teams with some Americans- a work thing. A few people were like ‘John (he/him)’. I was confused, until it hit me. But how in your face is this stuff?

    Raiders Coach Jon Gruden Resigns Over Racist, Homophobic, Misogynistic Emails

    I don’t recall Colin Kaepernick getting much free speech love around here. Did you believe that he got a raw deal when he was ‘canceled?’ Free speech? Free expression? In my mind, all these public personas are ‘brands.’ Some become toxic— a distraction from the sport. But I wouldn’t compare...

    Raiders Coach Jon Gruden Resigns Over Racist, Homophobic, Misogynistic Emails

    Cancel culture?! I am all for letting the market dictate one’s value if you are a coach, entertainer, content creator, influencer, whatever. In that position, you are your own brand. If you choose to make yourself toxic, you should be able to take personal responsibility for the consequences—...

    Brown Sugar is Cancelled.

    When Ce Lo changed the lyrics to ‘Imagine,’ it sparked a whole other type of outrage. Weird Al is the only one who can change lyrics and remain unscathed.

    Brown Sugar is Cancelled.

    David Allen Coe’s classic version of ‘If That Aint Country’ just ‘disappeared’ off my Spotify list— they have some tepid live version that has been sanitized.
