So on my birthday, I really really had wanted a Highway-1 Jazz Bass. But all the stores were out of stock. So I went to this one store and like a week and a half before my birthday and the guy said he would order it for me but it wouldnt arrive until like 2 or 3 weeks later.

I get a call that it shipped early and they got it in....on my birthday...on top of that, he gave me somewhere around $100.00 discounted from the bass and hard case I bought

How awesome is that?....very awesome

Moe, those two people that got shot, the guy who did was soo crazy. I saw a video on him, he said he was trying to reach a time machine called the ruby satellite because the U.S. Government was misusing it and it would bring about the end of the world. He also said he had protected the machine for millions of years, that the machine would revive him if he was killed, and that the ripening of corn caused time to reverse.
