    Bad way to start the day.

    So this was me at 6:30 this morning... All is good, I'm alive and well but sore as hell. Got a CT scan and some xrays, nothing appears to be broken, but my ribs are willing to argue that. Anyways, be safe, happens in the blink of an eye!

    Anybody here growing massive quantities of cannabis?

    Do you have issues with powdery mildew? If so, what are you using to treat it (other than pruning), and if not, what strains are you growing? Thanks.

    Don Cherry fired from Hockey Night In Canada

    I never thought I'd see the day. For decades he's been paid to be an offensive editorial commentator, it's his schtick, but I guess he went too far this time. The shame is that this will be what he's remembered for, rather than all the philanthropic work he's done with kids and hockey. It is...

    New phone day (yesterday actually). I finally broke away from Apple and got myself a Samsung S10, which I'm liking so far. It got me very aggravated yesterday because I couldn't get my main email to work on it, but I finally figured out that something went wrong during the information transfer...

    Happy Thanksgiving Canada!

    We just finished our turkey dinner with all the fixings, homemade pumpkin pie for dessert, but I can barely move right now so it’ll have to wait a while. Today, and everyday, I’m thankful for the health of my family and friends, as well as myself. I’m thankful that I have a roof over my head...

    I’m literally shocked by how awesome this guitar is.

    I bought this for my gf years ago when she decided she wanted to learn, but unfortunately, she never took to it. It’s been sitting in my storage locker for many moons, untouched and unplayed, until yesterday. I had to go dig some stuff out and saw it leaning in the corner in its gig bag...

    Hetfield back in rehab, shows postponed.

    From their fb page... A Note from Lars, Kirk, and Rob We are truly sorry to inform our fans and friends that we must postpone our upcoming tour of Australia and New Zealand. As most of you probably know, our brother James has been struggling with addiction on and off for many years. He has...

    The King returns

    I know there’s a lot of Myers and Voorhees fans around here, and I love them both, but to me there’s only one true King of the Slashers... Mr. Freddy Krueger. I heard that this was being made, but sort of forgot about it. The trailers are actually a little underwhelming, but I’m reserving...

    What’s the last thing you spent money on

    ...and would you rather have an unending lifetime supply of it, or have all the money back that you’ve ever spent on it previously? The only caveat for my little game is that you can’t profit on the lifetime supply by selling it to others, and it’s non transferable. It’s for you, and you alone...

    Oops, never mind.

    I was going to post a thread, but realized the subject matter had no hot topic triggers or cause for outrage, and, well, y’know, I just don’t feel like bucking the trend today. :rofl: Happy Friday, y’all.

    Taming a bright LP?

    I have a few LPs, love them all for different reasons. One of them is a Sig T that is much brighter than any of my others, and I’d like to darken it up a bit. It’s totally usable as is, and has sat stock since I got it in 2014, so it’s not like I need to darken it up, I’d just really like to...

    Which foot do you tap?

    Which foot do you tap when you’re playing your guitar? Fret or strumming hand? I noticed that if I’m standing while playing that I tap my left foot (fret hand foot), but if I’m sitting, I always tap my right foot (strumming hand). Is that weird?

    Brian Johnson to tour with AC/DC again?

    Rumour mill has it that Brian will be doing a 2019/2020 world tour with the band, and it’s apparently going to be announced this week. If true, I think it’s great that he can get back out with the band. I guess it probably took a bit...

    What’s on your Saturday morning playlist?

    I’m listening to my newly discovered favourite, Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats. Freaking love these guys! What’re you guys into this morning?

    Somebody (sorry, can’t remember who) posted a trailer for a movie called Upgrade sometime over the last week or two. I think it may have been in one of the Gibson lawsuit type threads, but I’m not 100% sure. At any rate, I watched the trailer and thought it might be entertaining. I got home from...

    iPhone storage almost full

    I keep getting these stupid notifications that my iPhone storage is nearly full, offering to sell me more cloud storage for an extra charge per month. The thing is, I have about 7 gigs free on a 32gb iPhone 6S, and have had far less at times without getting the annoying notification 2 or 3...

    Hollywood just might’ve gotten this one right.

    Paul Rudd is joining the cast of Ghostbusters 3. I, for one, am immediately on board with this casting decision, I think he’s a brilliant choice. I’m suddenly looking forward to Ghostbusters 3.

    Saw Uriah Heep and Judas F’ing Priest last night

    What a great show. High energy the entire time, Rob Halford can still kill it, even approaching 70! They sounded fantastic! Uriah Heep surprised me, I wasn’t expecting them to go nearly as hard as they did. The crowd was quite into them as well, so they ran with that and kept up the pace for...
