She's lucky he didn't do anything earlier.  He could have clocked her a good one but never bothered.  Lucky those other guys were there.

I just saw an article about this, stalk or no stalk.  My answer:  Don't buy them.

Off-Topic / Epiphone Les Paul Standard Pro Top Plus
« on: December 20, 2017, 12:40:52 pm »
I mentioned some time ago I got this guitar.  I can't afford a Gibson $1500+ version so I settled for this.  I did watch a video where the guys were kind of split on the sound in a blind fold competition between the Gibson and Epiphone.  The Gibson was a little bit clearer, not so muddy.  But it was really close to my ears.  So I got it.

I play it through my Marshall Code 50 amp and it sounds pretty good.  The only problem I have seen is there seems to be a mismatch in the pickups.  The bridge pickup does not seem as hot as the neck pickup.  This is pretty minor.  It drives the amp pretty good, the signal is quite a bit hotter than my son's Tele knockoff. 

It looks like this:


I ordered it used on GuitarCenter website.  It looked like a sunburst which is what I wanted.  When it came it was Honeyburst and I was disappointed.  I was about to send it back but that would have been a large cost.  So I took it, figuring the electronics are the same.  Afterwards I saw a few sunburst Epiphone Les Pauls and they are pretty substandard paint jobs.  This honeyburst is really nice looking and I actually like it better.  I paid less than new price for a guitar that was about 6 months old and had not been played much.  It was in pristine condition.

Bottom line - I really like it.  It sounds nice, plays nice, stays in tune forever, and is fun to play.  The Code 50 is a bit much in the house.  No way can I turn it to 11!!!   I have the Master volume at about 7-8 oclock, very low.  But that is plenty loud in the house for sure. 

Just thought I'd share my experience with it.  Overall, I couldn't be happier with my setup.  I might get a foot pedal for the amp so I can  change sounds on the fly.  The amp is a modelling amp so it can sound like 14 different preamps, 7 different power amps, with all different kinds of chorus's, flangers, and other effects.  I can program them so that my pedal can get to them pretty quickly.   

Merry Christmas everybody!

Off-Topic / Top 20 albums of all time
« on: November 28, 2017, 05:09:41 pm »
So the radio station was playing the top 102 classic rock albums of all time (dating back to the stone ages I guess).  Number 15 was Elton John's Goodbye Yellow Brick Road.  I really like the album and the bass lines that Dee Murray played in many of the songs got me very jazzed on playing the bass.  Top 20 albums were:

20 — DREAMBOAT ANNIE – HEART – 1976
19 — AXIS: BOLD AS LOVE – JIMI HENDRIX – 1967
18 — STICKY FINGERS – ROLLING STONES – 1971
17 — THE JOSHUA TREE – U2
16 — THE DOORS – THE DOORS – 1967
15 — GOODBYE YELLOW BRICK ROAD – ELTON JOHN – 1973
14 — II – LED ZEPPELIN – 1969
13 — I – LED ZEPPELIN – 1969
12 — THE WALL – PINK FLOYD – 1979
11 — LET IT BLEED – ROLLING STONES – 1969
10 — ABBEY ROAD – THE BEATLES – 1969
9 — ARE YOU EXPERIENCED – JIMI HENDRIX – 1967
8 — HOTEL CALIFORNIA – THE EAGLES – 1976 
7 — WHO’S NEXT – THE WHO – 1971
6 — RUMOURS – FLEETWOOD MAC – 1977
5 — IV – LED ZEPPELIN – 1971
3 — THE WHITE ALBUM – THE BEATLES – 1968
2 — SGT. PEPPER’S LONELY HEARTS CLUB BAND – THE BEATLES – 1967

Off-Topic / Daylight Saving time
« on: November 11, 2017, 07:36:21 pm »
My son had a pretty good idea.  Instead of falling back to Standard time, he thinks we just adjust the clock further ahead 2 hours so we have some daylight to get things done at home after work.  I thought that was not a bad idea.

I was thinking this was about Hope Solo but no, it is about the other person whose name begins with H.

Other Sports / Leach doing well at WSU
« on: October 10, 2017, 06:25:31 pm »
Leach got the shaft in TX and I was really hopeful that he could do well at WSU.  It looks like a few years of waiting is paying off.  WSU is in the top 10 for the first time in a long time.

Off-Topic / RIP Tom Petty
« on: October 02, 2017, 04:28:43 pm »
Tom Petty died today.   I remember when his song "Break Down" was a big hit.  I worked in a restaurant and break down meant the cooks broke down all their stuff at the end of the night and the dishwasher had a huge surge to deal with.  When that song came on during that time, it was kind of nice really.

Other Sports / Sloane Stephens
« on: September 13, 2017, 11:32:10 am »
At the press conference after winning the US Open for Women's Tennis over Madison Keyes 6-0, 6-3, she was asked the following questions.  Her responses are great.

Reporter:  Does your first Grand Slam title (with $3.7 million winnings) give you a “hunger” to do it again.

Stephens:  “Of course, girl! Did you see that check that that lady handed me?  Like, yes! Man, if that doesn’t make you want to play tennis, I don’t know what will. Man. So, yes, definitely."


Other Reporter:  Do you feel bad for Madison Keys?

Stephens:  “Feel bad for her?  She was in the finals, too. What do you mean? Did you see the check she’s about to get?   I’m sure she’ll be just fine.”


Clueless reporters.

Off-Topic / My summer vacation
« on: August 29, 2017, 06:58:59 pm »
Well, we went to visit my brother in Meridian, ID.  We went whitewater rafting on the Payette river and that was a lot of fun.  I really enjoyed it.  Next, my brother and I jammed on guitar and bass, and that was fun.  It would have been more fun if it lasted a lot longer. 

Then we went to Payette, ID to see the eclipse and it was just plain awesome.  Not much more to say about that. 

We finished up the trip going to a water park and jamming with my nephew and brother. 

We made it home in time to install a new front door to the house.  Big job.   Not looking forward to anything similar in the near future.
