    Gibson issuing cease and desist orders story prohibited by MLP?

    I blame Paruwi who is the biggest Gibson apologist and shill for spiking these stories. I’ve heard he even has a secret 3D holographic tattoo of Henry waving.

    You don't own that Tesla

    One reason is Tesla needs money and as many software and tech companies have learned subscribers are a great source of revenue. If there’s not much they can do with the physical car for various reasons, then that leaves software and feature toggles. Toyota can sell me different versions of a RAV...

    Gibson issuing cease and desist orders story prohibited by MLP?

    And yet, here we are. Again. I think it’s time for Mr Agnesi’s daily firing.

    Lithium! The new "Gold Rush"?

    So we don't have nearly enough of a raw material to achieve a goal that some governments are running to like lemmings in a Disney nature movie. Lovely. Europe is the WeWork of the world.

    I let her manscape me

    Most of my sex prep is taking my wife out for a nice dinner and drinks. This seems like a lot more effort than its worth.

    Is this a floating bridge like on a violin?

    My Gretsch has a beautiful ebony floating bridge, which is finally why I retired it from gigging and switched to a Les Paul. I learned a few tricks to Mark where the bridge should be.

    Yeah not suspicious at all!!

    Back in the 70s I went with a friend to his pot dealer. I didn’t smoke pot (still don’t) so I didn’t know what to expect but it was as if it was from a movie. Beads across the door, seeds everywhere, plenty of smoke and a fat hippy dealer. So while my friend is negotiating with fat hippy I’m...

    You don't own that Tesla

    Really more about bad PR caused by a bad rebuild. Which to me is a reasonable concern.

    You don't own that Tesla

    If it’s like software then the company essentially leases the software to you. I’ve had to explain that several times to c-suite several times. Tesla is trying a different business model where the car is almost(?) a platform for the features rather than just a vehicle. I would guess at some...

    It took my whole life but The Beatles finally grew on me

    I always wondered if that was just their different environments. The Beach Boys we’re still a touring band with one guy doing most of the writing and recording, with the rest of the guys dropping in to do their parts. Very much like modern country music. But Brian was operating on a different...

    You don't own that Tesla

    It’s how Elon works, you do something and if you get into trouble oh well, he doesn’t need to make a profit (really, he doesn’t at this point). It’s how he gets to move so fast. Is it a good way? Time will tell. But Elon also knows he can’t operate if there is anybody that can influence how he...

    It took my whole life but The Beatles finally grew on me

    When their machine was cooking they could whip up a good sounding record that means nothing.

    It took my whole life but The Beatles finally grew on me

    And there’s the almost a Beatles album by Ringo with John, George, Paul, Billy Preston, Klaus and Mal all lending a hand.

    It took my whole life but The Beatles finally grew on me

    It’s funny how overrated The Beatles tend to be until I listen to something of theirs and find something else that I’ve overlooked for decades. Went to bed last night to this.

    The Rock Star, Artist and Madman: Music doesn’t move in a vac

    While talking about The Beatles being influenced and in turn being influencers I started thinking about Bowie, Reed and Pop, and their feedback loop.

    Good afternoon to The Backstage!

    I think you’re looking for that other thread from Friday.
