  1. Dude who works on my guitars has this amp he posted a picture of. Made me giggle when I saw it. Early 80's 800 cab with the original 65 watt Celestion's. He does great repair work. Facebook:. Dojo Guitar Repair. Check out this work on a 2004 LP with a broken headstock. If you watch Beato's YT stuff, this is Dave Onarato.
  2. Stopped in to check on the thread and it was bumped to page 2. Was at a meeting on Sunday. It is an outdoor meeting right by the Chattahoochee River in Atlanta. Was reminded of something I heard the head of the spiritual leader at my treatment center say a couple of times, then later read in Douglas Hime's book, "Higher Power." Mr. Hime was actually in a small group early in my rehab stay. Former patients come back to the treatment center for different types of meetings. There are about 10 different breakout groups and I just happened to be in his. I didn't know who he was at the time but I got his name and later, in the book store, I recognized his name on the cover of the book. He wasn't at the rehab meeting in any official capacity. Just a former patient coming back to attend a meeting. Anyway, he was talking about the difference between religion and spirituality. Religion is a guy in church, thinking about fishing. Spirituality is a guy fishing, thinking about God. Hope everyone has a great week.
  3. I think that color really helps. That is about the coolest looking amp I've ever seen. Anytime I see anyone playing a Matchless, I think "Damn, that would really be cool if it were only the color of Celery's amp."
  4. My favorite part of these is where they are working through the song, before they do it. Diane Birch is a great one (vocal horn part). This is probably my favorite.
  5. Oh... @Celery Man I must have missed it. OUTSTANDING news! Where is the new gig? Had something happen that I found interesting. While in rehab, I've become much more versed in the opioid situation for a lot of reasons. But a little over a month ago we had a good friend who lost a 21 yr old son. Everyone knew what happened but I was giving them room before I even tried to talk with them. And I never really saw anything to verify what everyone already knew. Ran in to a common friend to check on their status. I learned that the parents had jumped in completely to learn all they never knew and didn't know about opioid addiction. Once I found out that they weren't putting their head in the sand or trying to deny the cause, I contacted her. Then, a week later she posted this brilliant writing about the situation. I mainly wanted them to listen to Stephanie Wittles Wachs' BRILLIANT podcast, "The Last Day". She later told me she had already read her book and just about every other book I knew about. Then we were able to have a really long conversation. One thing she said was, "I posted that because people are going to think what they want about us but I didn't want them to be dragging his name through the mud....but assholes who don't understand are going to do that anyway." She also mentioned several time about what a failure she and her husband felt like. All typical stuff. I just listened and didn't say, "Don't say that. Don't feel that way. You are wrong...you are GREAT parents". I just let her talk. At the end she said, "Thank you so much. You are the first of hundreds of people who hasn't told me not to feel this way." One thing I'm learning through my little trail this past year and 4 months is, "You feel how you feel. Don't try to change it. Just sit with it, realize what it is and move on." The moving on part is the variable.....some things take longer to move on from than others. Moving on from a son dying from an OD will obviously just take a lifetime. I told her that being a Texan, I had to rely on my spiritual roots. The Tao of Willie. I told her the story of Buddy Cannon overhearing Willie Nelson talking to a friend who had just lost her husband. She told Willie, "I don't think I'll ever get over this." Willie told her, "It's not something you get over. It's something you get through."
  6. She is a she. It is apparently what keeps them alive.
  7. Cory is a great dude. I was at a tiny show one night when Richard Goodsell brought Cory a new amp to try out. He put his acoustics away, pulled out a hopped up Strat and fucked around with the amp all night. Really cool show. LOVE No-Hit Wonder. Survivor Blues from Mutt is one of the best written songs I've ever heard. So many lyrical bits of genius throughout that song. I go back and forth on which version I like better. This is the 'Thin Lizzy' version. <quote>She struggled to read his knuckle tattoos Beneath the ring and the scar But the left said love and the right read true She said please say you got a car It's parked out back It's pointed out of state It's a recent acquisition we should probably ditch the plates</quote> <quote> Yellow duffel in the seat back yonder Bunch of pretty junk I bought her It's yours if you want either to you or the flame But to me it's the same</quote> <quote> She said no thanks man my baggage is packed This name on my ankle with this knife in my back I know a place on the way out of town It's as good as burned down It's as good as burned down</quote>
  8. Just looking for a better way to setup mixer/drum machine/vocal processor, etc.
  9. @tbone_ Can you snap of pick of the setup on those stands on the right?
  10. Im going to add another one to spread these out and to have some hooks for cables and headphones.
  11. I finally decided on this and love it. (stock photo...not mine) https://diamondlifegear.com/guitar_hanger_mx.html?gclid=Cj0KCQjwv7L6BRDxARIsAGj-34qR_L8DEZaJqcfhSb2_PxjMbomdrYdQ0ZCtbwhdhsvWSpnX9Idxv5gaAjvBEALw_wcB
  12. Life it too short. Buy new/better cables. I've had good luck with these GLS cables. Not too much money but seemingly good quality. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00XQF90PC/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  13. I've only walked out of one concert in my life. It was Justin's tour in 2014 or 2015. (Single Mothers tour, I think) He was in a shit mood, insulting the audience, acting like he was doing the crowd a favor for being there. He just seemed generally bored and irritated. Probably 800 people in a 1,000 seat venue so it wasn't about the lack of a crowd.
