    Speaking of Cars….

    The VW dealer left a voicemail this morning saying they’re interested in buying our car. We have 2 VW’s but assume they’re asking about my wife’s TDI Beetle. It’s a 2015 with just over 30k miles and we take it there for servicing. I wonder what the deal is? I’m not aware of anything like this...

    Look At This Guitar! Am I Crazy For Wanting This?

    I’ve been searching for a new guitar and really been drooling over Schecter USA Custom Shop stuff. This popped up on my search last night and I can’t stop thinking about it. The colors aren’t really my style but specs of this guitar are exactly what I want. It’s heavy, 9.2 lbs, and it has 6100...

    Your Feel Good Friday Thread

    I may have mentioned a time or two that my wife and I are involved in cat rescue. We see feral cats become tame, shy neglected cats find new homes, etc. This cat we took into our care yesterday is special though and I thought you guys/gals might enjoy the story. We got a call from a vet that...

    You Guys Starting to Play Out Again.....

    None of you have broken strings, yell at old people, get under paid, have to give loser friends a ride, or have touching 1on1’s with a drunk patron? Are gigs that boring post pandemic or what?

    Speaking of Remakes What About Lost in Space?

    Anyone else catch the Lost in Space remake on Netflix? At first I did not like the idea of changing the Dr. Smith character but after some episodes I realized it was an improvement. The original Dr Smith was weak and predictable. The new one has all kinds of surprises up her sleeve. One thing I...

    Pending NAD, Marshall 2266c

    One of my guitar gear regrets is selling my purple Marshall Vintage modern half-stack. I’m correcting that mistake by getting the combo version. Made an eBay purchase yesterday and picking it up tonight. Got it for a great price IMO. One thing I forgot about these amps is the tendency to blow...

    Unconventional Homes.

    Came across this property for sale and curious how many of you guys would live in something like this. Makes me think of sci-fi mad scientist end of the world zombie apocalypse stuff. Wonder how much $$$ it would take to turn it into a livable home...

    Finally Solved the Buzzing

    I have been chasing a buzz in my Gibson Les Paul for a long time. I’ve re-resoldered components, swapped pots 3-4 times, swapped output jacks, and checked for continuity with a meter to ensure all connections are good and everything is grounded. It dawned on me one day that every other guitar I...

    You Called Me?

    We all get missed phone calls right? How many of you just have to call back to see what you might have missed out on? Don’t do that anymore. They’ll leave a message if it’s important. I get these “return” calls all the time at work because all outgoing calls display our main number (which I...

    What's with this broom thing?

    Anyone else seen all the broom pictures people are floating around on social media? Seems as though they believe NASA made some report about the earth's tilt being different on one day of the year, making it possible for a broom to stand up on it's own. Truth is, the earth's tilt is always at...

    For you guys that can spot fakes:

    This is in my local craigslist. I don't know how to spot a fake that well but I'm guessing this is a MIC knock-off. What say you?
