    Freedom Convoy came to my gig!

    I have as much "right" to be here as the next guy, including yourself. The fact you feel differently than me does not change that nor make you more entitled to the space. Out of respect for Dave, as per his statement, I'll leave it at that.

    Witnessed an accident today and I'd like to talk about it

    I drive a 10 year old Hyundai hatchback. When I follow a big rig I'm trying not to make my own oil slick in my Wranglers.

    Witnessed an accident today and I'd like to talk about it

    Ah ha! I'll keep that in mind. Thank you. I've heard some were unable to drive 55.

    Freedom Convoy came to my gig!

    I could say the same of you. That's how these matters work. Are you assuming your worldview is the correct one? As stated, I was there, in the flesh. I saw it with my own eyes, my own camera, heard it with my own ears. Believe whatever media you choose to filter your world information. I'll...

    Freedom Convoy came to my gig!

    I understand the smarmy glibness is the point, but guy, you literally just told a story about how a guy with a nazi flag was simply using it to play make-believe as a 'warning'. And I'm the one telling stories?

    Likewise. If it walks like a duck with a nazi flag, it's a nazi duck.

    Freedom Convoy came to my gig!

    So he was playing Nazi dress up to warn us all? I play my SG just to let people know we don't want SGs, that Les Pauls are better and that if we aren't careful, we'll all end up playing SGs.

    Freedom Convoy came to my gig!

    Of course it occurred to me. I'm a very skeptical person. That's why I went down to see it all for myself, to ask questions, to know the truth. After speaking with many people there for weeks, including group leaders, I got to know their true colours. They weren't all terrible or anything, but...

    Of course it's complex man. There were people from all over the country there for many different reasons. It was not a single issue group, hence the nazi flags. Like it or not there were white supremacists there. That doesn't mean they were all white supremacists. Life is more nuanced than...

    Freedom Convoy came to my gig!

    Lol. I wrote a lot out, which part do you disagree with? The fact it cost us about 30 million? The fact the organizers have been/are being charged? That can be easily substantiated. As per the grifting and con artistry - there are stories coming out about people who went there in support of...

    Should Gibson Offer Evertune Equipped Guitars?

    Lost me at LCD screen. I have no problem with the idea of modern tools that help and advance the modern breed of guitarist, but I don't need a little TV screen in my guitar, thanks. And no, I'm not a boomer.

    Any of you guys watching Lizzo's Watch Out for the Big Grrrls?"

    You have gangster pen pals?

    Freedom Convoy came to my gig!

    It's complex. It was a bunch of people forming a convoy that occupied our capital for almost a month (left us with a bill of 30 million dollars too - policing was something like $800,000/day). Many were unhappy about the mandates and pretended it was only about that. If you really dig into it...

    That's true. What they don't respond well to is trench coat flashing.

    Thinking about getting a LP classic; what color is the best?

    I think there may be a dealer exclusive. Wish I could trade my 2020 ebony Classic for a Goldie. I need a Goldtop in my life. I almost bought one of the 2018 Goldtop Classics with P90s, but I didn't want the 60s neck. I like em beefy.

    I'm not much of a traditionalist, but the "new" lyrics are fuckin stupid. They don't even sound good, they're awkward. It's like hearing a guitarist hit a bad note in the middle of a kickass solo.

    No. The problem begins when some start using patriotism as a trojan horse for racism, and likewise when others irrationally associate all patriotism with racism. Both of those things are common these days.
