    Where's the beef, Wendy's!?

    Last week I stopped at my nearest Wendy's drive thru (almost 10 miles from home!), and ordered some chicken nuggets meals and a Dave's Single meal. The order seemed right: nugget meals, fries, and a wrapped burger in the bags. When I got home, I unwrapped the burger to find that there was no...

    Bought my first Fender!

    Meet my MIM HSS Plus Top: Ever since I bought my first electric guitar (a Harmony Strat copy), I thought, "Maybe someday I'll buy a real Fender Strat.". Well, thanks to a real nice gigging musician, I was able to bring this beauty home with me two weeks ago. It sounds as great as it...

    Well, my son is on Christmas break from school, and he's been enjoying himself playing with these: I got these for him as Christmas presents because he has been showing interest in playing guitar as of late. I always hoped he would be interested in guitar, and I bought a Squier Strat for him...

    Went to the fiestas today!

    I took my son to the Fiestas de Santa Fe today. We had an awesome time! This was his first time at the event and he loved it! I had taken him to see the Fiesta parade many years ago when he was a lot younger, but he had never been to the actual Fiestas. It was a great day for it also. The...

    Big-store music catalog question...

    I've been getting music store catalogs from Musician's Friend, American Music Supply, and Sweetwater for years now, and I've always wondered about this: Why don't they ever post the prices of Rickenbacker guitars? They always have the 'call for price' where the price is usually displayed.

    R.I.P., Victoria

    I didn't know this little girl, but the way she died is horrific. I have a son just two years older than her, and I work around kids her age constantly, so this really affects me. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cZmWrvbzAXw
