That breaks my heart. I'm so so sorry. No consolation or advice ever helps. Just try to remember all that you loved about her. It'll help in its own distorted way. All the best to you and your family from mine here in Ireland.My mom died yesterday at 2:14 PM...
I thought Americans were all about 'free speech'? Every damn day we have someone in the Forum of the Banned complaining about their free speech being denied. We just say, "Dude, you called someone a cunt and posted goat porn." The Internet is not like real life. You can't just say or do whatever you feel like and get away with it because of 'free speech'. This website has its own set of rules, just like certain States have their own taxes and laws.My problem with TGP closing their controversial threads (and a lot of the times deleting them entirely) is that when people come along looking for info about a certain pedal, or stumble across a "praise" thread about one, their view is distorted because they're only seeing the good comments left behind.
Using the Alpha Drive as an example, how many people might have inadvertently bought one at full price before realizing it was a ripoff of a $40 pedal, then down the road when they find out, they're out their hard-earned money. Alpha Drive might be a bad example, since it was smeared all across the internet, so chances are people found out pretty quick, but what about costly pedals that don't get as much attention on a wider scale, like this dumbloid pedal that is probably more than likely a clone?
This is true. But how can you truly make an informed decision without first dipping your toes into the water? But you have a point.^ +1 (though even they're biased too, and you could make the argument that they're being hypocrites- they've had their fun and now want to stop others )
EDIT: just to clarify i'm not in favour of banning guns either.
what would really sicken TGP is if all the people who got duped by an overpriced clone, whose hyping was enabled by TGP's ridiculous rules, got together and sued it.
It's amazing how so few people understand this basic concept—the concept of self-preservation vs. a total lack of care or tested input. They rely on the argument of selflessness and a caring attitude (think of the children!), but really they couldn't give a shit. People who want to ban video games have nothing to lose, while on the flip side banning guns, something that would arguably save a hell of a lot of lives (I'm not necessarily in favour of banning guns in the States; I'm just using it as an example), is not in their favour so they'll fight it.+1
I don't have much time for adults who grew up before computers acting like computer games are somehow "different". Those adults, by and large, don't want to play computer games and hence (since they're dicks) have no problem with trying to ban something which won't affect them. I don't see those adults saying that 18 cert films/movies should be banned (since they want to watch movies), or books. heck books have no age ratings at all.
Yeah, I meant semi-hollow. I was just giving it an easier to type name.maybe that was in response to someone else, but I think the midtown customs are semi-hollow? I think they're made from solid wood which has been hollowed out. I could be wrong, though.
Ooh, that's nice too. Hollow-bodies are in a whole different world altogether. There are quite a few out there to choose from, but not many in the smaller form factor.^ thomann did a special run of the midtown custom there recently and are selling it for ~£800 (955 euros). they're out of stock for about a month, but might be worth considering.
Never tried one, just to point out. But might be worth considering, the price sounds pretty good.
Ahhh, man, I'm really sorry to hear that. Cancer consumes the lives of so many. Mojo sent, mate.At the beginning of summer my mom was told she had cancer by her general practitioner. We changed our road trip to include seeing her and meeting the oncologist for an official diagnosis. This was about 3 weeks ago.
We met the Dr and he basically told her (and us) that the kind of cancer she had was horrible and she'd be lucky to live a month -- dick. We stayed as long as we could and she had another oncologist to see the day after we got back home. He told her she had at least 6 months to live, maybe longer.
Got a call this Sunday from her saying she didn't think she'd be around for more than a couple days longer. This blew me away as she was doing alright when we left! We arrived on Monday and left on Thursday.
She's in a bad bad way. And even though she had a big resurgence when we arrived, I could tell us being there was taking its toll on her. As I gave her a kiss/hug goodbye she short of held my hand from pulling away and said she felt it was the end. I pretty much disregarded that and said I'd make arrangements to see her in 2-3 weeks. But I know I'm just lying to myself.
I cringe every time my phone makes a noise. I know the call is coming and I'm heart broken...
EL84's. I honestly dig that 'falling apart' sound. It's awesome. The amp won't be cranked all the time anyway. It'll be mostly about the preamp because it's designed for small pub shows and house parties, as well as a quieter practise rig for home.EL84 based? Or 6V6? A low wattage 6V6 based doom amp would be tons of fun. 84s fall apart too quickly when pushed, IMO.
Oh, I see! No, it's my fault. I've had a really weird (tough) few days and I've done and said some silly things.Oh no, we haven't. I was just making the observation that just because a bunch of people in one location place a certain value on something, it doesn't necessarily make that valuation correct. That's all I meant. Sorry for the ambiguity.
Houses?^ to be fair, your perception of the value of houses wasn't exactly spot-on
LOL at the "18 minutes more than i'd need" thing
Pretty much this. Although we have to pay a lot more money than others doesn't mean it's not worth it. Our perception of value is a lot different than countries with little to no tax.All US made stuff is expensive outside the US. You just gotta deal with it and when I played it I knew it was great, I could afford it and it's a definite upgrade.
If I were to have imported it I'd have saved £250 after taxes, £300 max. And here I don't have to send it to another country and **** about if something ****s up with it.
It doesn't seem stupid to me at all. In fact it could be somewhat negligible.
My kingdom for a desk like that.
Best set up ever.
