    snagged a predator splatter 7 string. Now I just need to make a predator themed cavity cover for it.

    Just completed my first gig playing bass with Kyrbgrinder on Sat. Part of the HRH festival at the O2 Birmingham. To say I've stepped up in terms of venues is an understatement!! To say I still have some improving to do is also a large truth.

    Super chuffed at the moment!

    Nightwish released a new song, and I hadn't listened to anything they've done with Floor (since everything with Anette was a snore, I figured it'd be the same thing), but uh, holy shit. I'm going back and listening to Endless Forms Most Beautiful, and it honestly seems like they picked up where they were musically when Tarja departed.

    I was flipped off by a lad in a car with a "Coexist" bumper sticker and will now be enjoying the irony for the rest of the evening.

    I love these kinds of situations from the deepest bottom of my heart. :lol:

    I’m a UPS driver and I can’t tell you how many times I’ll get flipped off, yelled at through and/or out the window, given the death stare, ect... for getting cut off or going through an intersection when it’s in fact my turn, or I guess just existing... and I can’t help but burst out laughing :lol:

    Just got back from a trip to Austin TX last night. The gf and I had an awesome time and we really loved the city. Would consider moving there and becoming part of the problem of too many outsiders coming to Austin and driving up housing prices. :lol:

    I knew I was "up there", but it's good to get some recognition.

    Watching guitar set ups with Dave from Dave's world of fun stuff... Can't explain it, I just find it very zen. Like a hoser Bob Ross.

    I love Dave's videos'. The jokes he made about the B.C. Rich guitars/basses he had to work in the past are hilarious. He called a customer's B.C. Rich bass an "alien gardening tool". LOL. He also had to work on 8 string guitars, which were relatively new at the time, and he was like, "what do people play on this thing???". LOL.

    really geeked today bc i think my band finally found our vocalist. dude came out last night and destroyed. he was previously in a band that my old band used to play shows with and i always dug his stuff. we should be out playing shows soon... he was the last piece of the puzzle. feels great!!

    finally got CODMW working again on my pc and I've been having a ton of fun with the amt vt2. I hated the actual pittbull UL when I had it but something about this pedal just clicks with me right now.

    First clean-up (I know right? I got the thing in November, fuck! :lol:) and fresh setup in Drop C on the Dinky. Lowered the 81 because it was ridiculously too close to the strings, what a FUCKING TONE MONSTER now! :hbang:

    Got my Seymour Duncan Powerstage 170 last Friday. Put it up against 2 rectifiers that weekend and it held its own with zero issues. Goodbye carrying heavy tube heads to shows!
