From what I saw from the video I can it looks like a explosive device.

BBC is reporting two explosions, timed closely together in a nearby hotel.

To be fair though, more devices have now been found.

The authorities just confirmed it was done with controlled devices and there are unconfirmed reports of two other undetonated devices.

Agreed. The first one evidently detonated inside of a hotel lobby, and the video shows none of the trademarks of a gas explosion. It looks like much of the blast was contained inside the building. Someone at the scene said the second one detonated outside, in what looked like a trash can. And MSNBC just said that there was a third explosion. I haven't seen any videos of the other explosion(s).

So do we think it was an organized group, or just some nutcase looking to kill people?

I'm gonna say an organized group. Just sheer logistics would make it damn hard for a single bomber.....

All pretty ****ed up though

Police said the third explosion was apparently fire-related (JFK Presidential Library), and not a bomb. There were the two that exploded, and apparently two more that were found and dismantled.

I'll be going to the Bloomsday run in Spokane in 3 weeks, I wonder if security will be over the top now.

If you are in the Boston / New England area, Red Cross is putting out the word for blood donors.

My brother goes to school in Worcester, I'll send him a text on that. Provided he can donate blood, he kind of hit that "new freshman freedom" phase with gusto.

The rumor mill at TB is tossing around the idea that Modulus might be going out of business. At the very least they're restructuring.

If they go under I might cry.

It's been going on for the last two + years.

Anyways the BTB I've put on order is now being held by the prefectural police.

Any idea how long it'll be held for?

These new rumors were prompted by their phones being down for a while, a lack of communication (more than usual) and bass central posting (and then taking down) that they were halting production for an unspecified amount of time. No one has heard from Anderson or Joe in regards to the company.

Unfortunately I have no idea since the police has a to do a investigation on a claim that this bass was stolen. Which could take a month or it could last 18 months it depends on how the quick police work.

Modulus have been a company that seems to go out of business whenever the economy is bad. Then again both Anderson and Joe don't seem to like dealing with people to begin with. Anyways the last I've heard Anderson and Joe have been busy with other work concerning CF and other composites.

Fear not. If Modulus bites the bullet, you can always get a synthetic-materials bass from Status.
