That's kinda what our president does, right? :D

MAKE A WALL! Oh, we can't make a wall? Uh,... okay. Where's my twitter? "COVFEFE". Fuck yeah.

We're gonna make a video game, it's gonna be so great, it'll be phenomenal, you'll see. I got these guys, friends of mine, good friends, we're gonna make this game. Some people in the fake news say it's not gonna be a good game. But I assure you, make no mistake, it will be terrific.

Yeah, I dunno about that. This picture reminds me of the beginning of that movie Hostel. And that shit didn't end well. :D

Well shit the bed! Mister fuckin' Bean! Like the psychotic knife-weilding bloodlusting plastic animatronic Dutch toddlers that haunt my dreams always say, "It's a small world after all!"

There's at least 4 of that puking girls friends there. One rubbing her back, the one leaning against the wall so her drunk ass won't fall over, the one demolishing the sink, and the 4th drunk one operating the jittery camera like she has parkinsons.

WHY? WHY DO YOU WOMEN DO THIS SHIT!?! She's fucking puking her tits off. She probably doesn't want an audience. I'm almost POSITIVE that she doesn't want SOME FUCKING ASSHOLE FILMING IT FOR EVERYONE TO SEE either.

I don't understand you bitches sometimes.

Something interesting I came across this morning.

<span data-s9e-mediaembed="youtube" style="display:inline-block;width:100%;max-width:640px"><span style="display:block;overflow:hidden;position:relative;padding-bottom:56.25%"><iframe allowfullscreen="" scrolling="no" style="background:url( 50% 50% / cover;border:0;height:100%;left:0;position:absolute;width:100%" src=""></iframe></span></span><br /><a href="" target="_blank" class="new_win"></a>

A pretty unique flanger pedal. Knobs? FUCK 'EM! I thought the MXR Phase 90 pedals were kinda stupid and dated with just one knob for the speed, but I never thought I'd ever see a modulation pedal with NO knobs at all. And as far as this video makes it sound, it's actually pretty damned good. Kinda surprised by it. Then again, this guy has made LOTS of pedal demo videos and he's terrific at playing something that'll make any particular pedal sound it's best.

"Flange" got it's name from back in the old days when studios would run tape on reels. If you had 2 reels of tape playing the same thing at the same time, you could put a thumb on the end of the 2nd reels flange and slightly slow it down which would produce a wooshing sound. Since then, they've made units that use delay circuits to mimic that effect, and these units usually sweep the delay up and down at a constant rate via a rate/speed control. This pedal attempts to mimic the old-school method of reel-thumbing via a button that engages the delay to sweep up when its pressed and down when it's released.

It has a 2nd mode of what they call "through zero" flanging which is much more intense sounding. Again, the guy doing this video has a knack for playing things that make a pedal sound cool. But this mode sounds entirely useless to me. Theres no bass or drums he's playing against at that point in the video, so you maybe won't notice as much that the overall output volume is greatly effected to the point that in a live band setting, you probably wouldn't even hear the flanging effect, it would just sound like the guitars volume coming in and out of the mix.

Still cool and interesting. I'd like to see these people make an identical pedal with a rocker pedal output option to control the flange position either for more accurate control over the sweep or for using it as an EQ filter like a half-cocked wah pedal.

You should probably resize that image a bit. I'm on a monitor running 1280x1024 and your post is showing maybe the western 1/3rd of the pic. All you gotta do is resize the width, the length will go automatic. About a width of 600 is probably as large as you wanna go.

Like so...

I merely added a width=600 in the first IMG tag, like so...

So now I'm waiting on the longhaired hippies at Atlanta Guitar Center to give me a ring whenever the fuck they get in some more Fulltone Custom Shop Dejavibe units.

As I suspected I wouldn't, I never got a call from the dudes at the Atlanta Guitar Center. I noticed on the Guitar Center website, they don't even have a listing for the plain DejaVibe units anymore, just the higher priced ones with the foot treadle to control speed. So I checked the Fulltone site, and apparently they're phasing out the usual DejaVibe in favor of a smaller and more compact design.

However, I did notice that the Marietta store had an older used one that just came up for $140 (as opposed to about $220 for a new one). So I rode all the way out there and grabbed it.

As I suspected, it's MUCH better sounding than the MXR UniVibes. You simply CANNOT beat pedals that use that old school incandescent light bulb and photocell technology. I dunno what it is about them, but the harmonic content of any modulation effects using that old bulb and photocell stuff is so rich and lively. Unfortunately, they wouldn't throw in a free power adapter for it, which was an extra 20 bucks. :ohreally: So... turns out I could've saved myself the trip all the way out there and bought another used one that would COME WITH a power cord from a store in Connecticut for probably the same price after shipping and handling. :frustration:

Like the curious little child that I am, I cracked it open when I got it home just to check it's guts for any hidden issues. They ain't kidding, these things are hand-built. And the PC board that carries the components is like 1/2 the size of the entire enclosure, so with the newer smaller ones, apparently the only changes they've had to make to the units is simply a smaller box to put it in.

I used to think Boss pedals were the most bullet-proof and sturdy pedals out there. Lemme tell ya, these American-made Fulltone pedals ain't no fuckin' joke. This pedal weighs TWICE or THRICE as much as any Boss pedal. And 90% of the weight comes from the super thick folded steel housing. This thing is very obviously "used" judging from the removed rubber feet and velcro strips on the bottom to attach it to the previous owners pedalboard. But all the knobs still turn with a tightness like it's brand new. Fulltone doesn't use ANY cheap shitty parts on their pedals.

Sounds fake to me. A concentrator nozzle on an air hose isn't gonna blow air through the weave of jeans or slacks unless it's so highly pressurized that it rips the material. There's no legitimate use for an air hose that powerful, at least not one like a handheld concentrator with  a thumb operated valve. Nor do I see how air in ones ASS effects lung tissue. When you eat chili and fart up a storm, you don't sometimes cough up blood from bleeding lungs too. (unless your farts are THAT bad and the W.H.O. considers your taco nights a level 9 biohazard state of emergency) I'm not saying sticking an air hose up someones ass like they're a party balloon couldn't hurt them, sure it could. But I'd imagine injuries more along the lines of torn or herniated intestines leading to complications from ruptured abscesses and such... I almost said "and shit".

OH FUCK YES. It's those damned drinking straws that are destroying the planet! It's not absolutely EVERYONE driving around in cars that burn cancerous petroleum distillates and puke cancerous fumes into the atmosphere. Hell no, IT'S THE BENDY STRAWS ON YOUR KID'S HI-C BOX! Way to go, little Timmy, fucking the planet like the evil little useless shit that you are. (Get a fucking job, kid. I don't care if you're only 6, fuck you.)

Oh yeah, and you can't drink a large Coke in New York either, you fagg╬┐t. And you can't smoke... pretty much ANYWHERE any-fuckin-more, because nobody wants to breathe that second-hand shit and get cancer. BUT APPARENTLY WE'RE ALL FINE AND DANDY WITH THE INVISIBLE DEATH GASSES THAT OUR CARS POOP OUT THE BACK. God knows it the ONE CIGARETTE that some guy is smoking outside the McDonalds that's gonna kill us all, not the black clouds of death pouring out of the ass-end of a soccer moms shitty old late 90's Saab.
