Pub Talk / Trump wins

One thing I will say, he sure brought up a lot of freshness that needs to be address in modern day politics. I do wish him well.

Guitar Talk In General / New guitar and amp day
« on: June 16, 2016, 07:23:53 PM »
Well, my birthday is this month and I decided to treat myself with something I've always wanted to buy. Here are the links to what I should be picking up today, that is if it doesn't rain.


I didn't have the opportunity to try it out since it wasn't in stock so it had to be ordered.  The amp I did try out and found it to right up there with the pignose amp, maybe a bit better since it has like a gain switch on it.

I'll post something soon after I put in a few hours on it.

Pub Talk / Keeping Dolphin Street forum alive
« on: May 29, 2016, 06:48:25 PM »
We have a very nice forum here and our members are great.  I know now that we are heading into the summer months with them bbq's and usually the internet forums slow down a lot. But if all of us here can post a bit more (including me) I think we can keep this forum alive during the summer.  Let's all pitch in now.  :)

Pub Talk / My pictures of Japan last summer
« on: February 15, 2016, 10:09:36 PM »
Wanted to post earlier, but... I'm really an adventurous type of person and I finally got the opportunity to hit the road for a month (well, had too many typhoons) and do some sightseeing and camping.  I basically just hopped off my new scooter and took some pictures. A few are the campsites I stayed at.  Also some nice sunsets and sunrises.  Enjoy.  Hope to hit the road again this summer and really travel all around Japan.  :)

Pub Talk / Time to call in the National Guard, Chicago stuff
« on: February 03, 2016, 03:36:46 AM »
When I was 18, I worked and lived downtown Chicago. Can't say it was all bad back then, but I really never felt much fear. But look what is happening these days in Chicago.

don't worry about the link, not sure why they call it that.

Pub Talk / Big earthquake in Alaska
« on: January 24, 2016, 04:44:06 PM »
News is just coming in.  Anyone here live or close to Alaska.  Here where I live ( s.japan) we just had about 3 to 5 tremors a few minutes ago.  Dang another one just hit as I'm writing this. 

The weather here in my neck of the woods has been very different, today we got the worst snow storm in record (100 years).  Also I notice that the pavement on the streets are much warmer and that the snow is melting and turning into slush and then into icey conditions.

Amplifiers / got a new amp
« on: January 24, 2016, 03:48:39 AM »
I bought a Line 6 Spider 30 watt amp.  It's an OK amp, nothing to write home about though. Paid about 200 USD for it. Did get the foot box (option) free though.  The reason why I say its an OK amp is that I wish it had 2 guitar inputs, only has one. Anyway I'm stuck with it till I win the next big Lottery here in Japan.

Here is a take on how its sounds.  A bit too much reverb on this, but... gives you an idea how me and the amp sounds.

Electric Guitars / Bought myself a Gibson 335 style copy guitar
« on: December 02, 2015, 08:47:25 PM »
It is a fairly nice guitar. I put it right up there with the same price range with Epiphones made in China. I like the fast action neck also.  Here is the link, I bought the one on  the left side.
