    The Lighthouse

    A film from 2019. Anyone see it? I just watched it. My God! What an amazing film. Low budget. Shot in 35mm black and white with an aspect ratio of 1.19-1. Right from the grainy, blurry opening shot your skin starts to crawl. The angry sea looks a hell of a lot angrier in 35mm B&W! It's about...

    Pickup shielding problem

    OK, I give up.....rather than beat my brains out trying to figure this out I'm hoping some of the pickup gurus here can help me out. I've got a Tom Holmes H455 in the bridge position. Everything wired correctly, but there is no extra shielding effect when I touch the strings. The neck p/up does...

    Mrs G and I are gutted. We came home last night and I found Wally under my bench wailing and crying. His hind quarters completely limp. Bundled him up and rushed him to the emergency vet a half hour away.....listening to Wally cry all the way was heartwrenching. The vet diagnosed it...

    Went out to the garage this morning and noticed that a jar of lacquer retarder I had placed on the workbench yesterday was lying on it's side. I thought "that's odd....why would wifey do that?"
