    looking for specific live performance video

    someone posted a video somewhere on this forum (I want to say in the vintage section) a long time ago and I've been trying to find it again to no avail. it's an old black and white video from around the very late 50's or early 60's. If I recall correctly it was a a rock/blues performance, guitar...

    I'm feeling it right now. I went to buy a new door for my car off of craigslist. guy had a low milage parts car and the door was mint. went to pull the door off and all the weight of the door is at the front so it immediately tilted and the bottom front corner hit the ground now I have two...

    haven't cringed that hard in a while

    earlier today I was stopped at a red light about five or six cars behind a fairly new bmw coupe. I noticed a cloud of smoke. long story short, bmw driver was a kid probably no older than 20 and he was trying to do a burn out while stopped and instead was roasting his clutch the entire time. he...

    stolen identity

    someone filed for unemployment with my information. they hacked my works system and quite a few people got hit. now I am left with the task of getting this sorted because they didn't secure their system well enough. worst of all is they aren't even accepting responsibility for it. I asked for a...

    new car woes

    Bought a new/used car for a great price. long story short, the car is clean but the timing chain needs to be done. it runs great but there is a bit of timing chain noise. that said, the car isn't the problem. I knew it needed to be replaced when I bought it. it's finding a shop that will do the...

    cops are so bored now....

    they're handing out bogus tickets. I got a $40 ticket today for being parked facing against traffic in front of my house. aside from the fact the I live in a residential neighborhood and not a main or even secondary thoroughfare, I live outside of city limits. right on the border but out of...

    100 push ups a day

    since the gyms are all closed and i've been working out at home I decided to start doing 100 pushups everyday before my workout. not as part of my workout but to supplement it. I do 25 pushups, then 25 squats, take a short break then another 25 and so on. yes, it does suck but I have already...

    dodged a bullet...

    went to the dealership, cash in hand ready to buy a car. VW R32 with only 43K miles, one owner, clean car fax. priced a little high but I'm good at negotiating and the car looks super clean in the pictures. seems like a no brainer, right? I did the initial walk around and seconds in I knew...

    what an annoying feature

    I got a new smart tv for a really good deal but every time I turn it on it starts playing music videos. currently its Christmas music. to make it worse its justin bieber and some prepubescent little blonde douche probably from disney channel or something. I cannot figure out how to turn it off...

    unsettling

    I stopped by my girlfriends place after work to pick up her cat (cat sitting tomorrow). we talked outside for about 10 minutes before she went inside and I left. I texted her to ask if she made it inside because usually I watch her but where I was parked I couldn't see her go in. she told me...

I haven't bought strings in about a year so I went to buy some new strings yesterday and a pack of ernie ball regulars were $5.49. am I...

    car or truck?

    I'm in the market for a new or used car but I cant decide between a car or truck. the two top contenders are the subaru brz and an access cab toyota tacoma. used both are around the $10k-$15k range but there are some caveats to both. a tacoma with around 130k miles is priced about the same as...

    don't go to work sick!

    some asshole at my work came in with strep throat and now I'm pretty sure I have it too. I spent the last two days in bed dying, throwing up, waking up drenched in sweat but also freezing. luckily the fever is gone for the most part but now I have a really sore throat and cant eat anything...

    gonna start locking up my guitar....

    my sister brought her kids over while I wasn't home and when I got home from work my guitar was laying out, face up with all the weight on the headstock. I don't blame my niece for wanting to play it because she's young and doesnt know better but you'd think someone would have stopped her or at...

    is it just me?

    or does burning of the midnight lamp sound like it was recorded really poorly? it's one of my favorite jimi hendrix songs but to me it sounds bad. like it when when it was being recorded the audio was just on the verge of clipping or something. it sounds pretty flat to also. thoughts?

    red light cameras

    I just got a red light camera ticket about 20 minutes ago. not the actual ticket but while I was driving the camera flashed twice so I know it's being processed. what had happened was, I merged into the right lane (right turn only). as I approached the turn, the light went from yellow to red so...

    hear me out...

    everyone loves a video of a good fight or other types of tom foolery but what is the number one complaint when watching these videos? the camera man almost always films vertically. given that a lot of new phones are coming out with multiple cameras, why not make a mode that when you record a...
