    Oh what a tangled web we weave . . . But hey. It's been one hell of a *****ing ride so ***** it. It's 4am and I haven't slept since I got here. I have no idea how I'm still alive. Thank God I rowed those 60 miles on the row machine last week and got in great shape . . . Edit: btw I got here Friday . . .

    Already got my electric percolator pot set. Just have to plug it in tomorrow morning. Best coffee you ever had in a percolator. My sister still has her 60 year old glass percolator pot she uses every day on her stove.

    Thanks! I'm really looking forward to it. Packing my amp and guitars right now actually. Going to leave really early in the morning.

    As tempting as it has been at times I can't say I ever have. I got married very young. Haven't been around much at all actually. I tend to be loyal to a fault.

    Officially 20 years today with Mrs B. Or should I say Mrs S. She refused to take my last name. Women these days. 24 all totaled. It was my 51st birthday a few days ago, her 45th yesterday, and our 20th anny today. Time flies when you're having fun. And on that note, I'm packing my bags for the misty mountain. (AKA New Jersey) and she's staying here. I leave at 5am tomorrow morning. I'll be there almost a month. I had two bands I was sitting in with and an open mic night scheduled but things changed. I was also going to take my PC and record with friends at the place I'm staying but unfortunately they rented out the other side of the cabin that was vacant so now I can't make any noise. The reason I paid them a enormous amount of money was because of the complete and total privacy. Didn't know until after I booked this time that it wasn't private anymore like it was the last time I stayed there. I'm also building a porch for my sister and doing a lot of work on her house for her while I'm out there. Her husband and son both passed away and she's all alone and needs help. So I guess some good will come from my trip home. Some . I have no friends or family here (other than you guys virtually) and this is only the 3rd time I've been home in 25 years so I'm looking forward to it. Well, a 4th when my other sister died, but that was a quick in and out trip. Really disappointed about the change of plans with the music. I was really looking forward to it. Maybe it will change again. Wishing I would have gotten that Fender Acoustisonic modelling guitar moths ago so I wouldn't have to take my Strat, Martin, and an amp .... grrr.
  6. @SteveStrummerUK speaks proper English. Let me translate that in to American for you ... "There's Something Wrong With Bapu.". Then again in to Appalachian American ... "That Bapu guy is *****ed up!".
  7. Of course you're not. It was my ex and it was only married to me. Yes Jersey. A tiny little town up north right on the Delaware. Beautiful old Victorian town. All my family is from that NJ/PA area.
  8. I was thinking more along the lines of ... "Hold my Alembic"
  9. There is some really good stuff that has come out in the last 4 ~ 5 years. AI is going to change everything. I couldn't live without Ozone 9 Advanced now. Although, my interest in recording is really waning especially as my audience grows smaller with each passing day while also trying to protect the damaged hearing I have left. I can't imagine ever buying another new plugin. If I do it will probably be to upgrade to an even more advanced version of O9A to rehash past bad mixes and masters. The events of the last couple of years have sucked whatever spark I had left right out of me. And besides, how many compressors, EQ's, chorus, delay, reverb, can you have? To this day Sonitus is still one of my favorite suite of plugins. And some of the really old DX stuff that used to come with Cakewalk. I'd like to see the GUI's updated to be modern and work well, but that would come at the cost of revamping them all and losing what makes them sound good to begin with probably. The Sonitus Reverb and Comp are excellent IMO. The only thing that worked better than the Sonitus EQ in my opinion didn't come along until Melda's Auto Dynamic EQ. I could do anything I ever needed with S-EQ. S-Reverb is still to this day my favorite, but it's very unstable now and can't be used outside of CbB. At least not stably IME.
  10. My upcoming trip back home will make me temporarily happy ... until I have to come back here.
  11. It doesn't say what strings you put on it?
  12. A friend of mine was in a punk rock band in NYC called The Vomiteers back in the 90's. He said he doesn't remember a thing about it. And I believe him. He was and still is certifiably nuts.
  13. I'm afraid I may have been the problem now that I think about it. We were talking about blueberry pie and I mentioned the song Polk Salad Annie and how the plant they are actually referring to in that song is not good for you to the extent you won't be around anymore. It is edible but not prepared properly will render you irreparably non-functional. I may have mentioned, without thinking it through, the exact amount of berries to use to create that situation and that's more than likely why it got *****ing censored. LOL Sorry I burned your pie thread Sheens. Or I could be totally wrong and some admin at an IT Help Desk Farm in India just doesn't like pie.
