    Quincy guitars from the UK

    I did a forum search, and came up empty-handed. Does anyone out there have any actual experience with Quincy guitars from UK? They have a sweet-looking SG Jr. model which is pretty low budget, and I was wondering what impressions are out there from people who have played one. I kinda want one...

    Commercials that could be parodies of MLP

    When I saw these cute ads, I immediately thought of the Backstage here at MLP, and it made me smile. Sounds distinctly like some of the belly-aching that goes on around here :) Are there any other ads you've seen that have reminded you, for one reason or another, of some of our friendly...

    Topless Driver Crashes Through PG&E Security...

    Marshall Stanmore help!!

    I've got this nifty little Marshall Stanmore bluetooth speaker for my computer, and I've been really pleased with it.

    twitter feed on TV

    I don't know about you guys, but I find the now ubiquitous twitter-feed across the bottom of the screen at live-broadcast TV to be pointless and narcissistic. I mean, really. I couldn't care less that John Q Public and Jane Doe like this float, or that touchdown. It's like having a...
