After the crash, Allen Collins' drinking became worse and worse. I think he had been in NUMEROUS drunk driving accidents before the one in '86 that paralyzed him and killed his girlfriend.

They weren't the kind of band that improvised anything. They rehearsed songs over and over with the intention of playing them the exact same way every time. And with 3 guitarists, they could easily play their parts and have everything sound just like the albums.

And then you had the Allman Brothers who everyone termed "southern rock" who thrived on improvisation and often changed the tempos of different songs from night to night on a whim. A great band for sure, but much like with the Grateful Dead, you never knew what you were gonna hear. A lot of Deadheads claim that the Dead's best stuff was their live recordings. I don't really agree with that sentiment. While the Allman Brothers certainly sounded FUCKING INCREDIBLE on their Fillmore East recordings (my favorite album of theirs), most of the Dead's live recordings including stuff from the Fillmore West was just... lackluster... in my opinion, anyway.

Kaperdick... Anything to stay relevant. ::)

If you can't throw for touchdowns, GTFO, it's the fucking NFL, shit's competitive. Who cares about his political views or his social views or whatever. He (and any other player) can do that shit in his spare time.

Most of all, who gives a fuck what ANY football player thinks about jack shit!?! The idea that football players and pro athletes are "role models" is a fuckin' myth that was NEVER true. Babe Ruth was a shithead. Ty Cobb hated the blacks. Roger Maris was a nazi (probably not, but who gives a shit about facts anymore) Walter Payton was a great dude, yeah. Several others are, sure. But there's sites on the internet, something like "NFLblotter" or whatever that list all of the players each year who get into any kind of trouble with the law. The list gets longer every year. These people are no one in particular to look up to. They should be viewed as... entertainers, basically. They can do superhuman shit on a football field and are talented at sports, but they aren't the best and brightest among us, FAR from it.

Stand, take a knee, pull out your dick in protest, I don't give a fuck. Just PLAY THE FUCKING GAME WELL. THAT... is what matters to people most of all. And if it doesn't, then it fucking SHOULD.

Actually, I guess I got that wrong. Upon some internets browsing, it appears as though Wildwood doesn't MAKE guitars, they're just a big fancy guitar shop somewheres in Colorado. And apparently Fender makes them a few extra-special custom shop guitars every year. And apparently that particular strat body is made from a extra-super-primo-choice cut of ash, which I dunno how they grade that exactly, but I do remember how remarkably and usually lightweight it was even for an ash body. But the "10" in the name I guess refers to the fact that the guitar would be rated a solid "10" on a scale of 1 to 10... which I totally concur with, that fucking thing sounded and played like a dream.

Anyway, I was browsing around the Music-Go-Round national website and spotted this insane thing.



It's a Paul Reed Smith Custom 22 10-top. So... I'm not really a big fan of PRS guitars. They sound good, sure. They look pretty, sure. But they tend to look a little too fancy for my taste. If I was rich as shit and could afford to collect them and hang them on the wall and never play them, maybe I'd buy one or two. But I wanna PLAY the shit I buy, not win a beauty contest with it. And most regular PRS's have really nice flame and quilt maple figuring on the tops. But then they have several graduated ranges of their guitars, one of them being the "Private Reserve" label ones I've shit-talked on here before. But somewhere just below those, they have the "10 Top" models, which are kinda like the Gibson Les Paul premium plus top models, which I think have AAA or AAAA grade flamed maple tops to them. But some of these fuckin' PRS 10 Top models... are just ri-goddamned-diculous with how highly figured the maple tops are. Like... THIS ONE for example.

That odd curvature to the figuring around the tailpiece... I kind like how unusual it looks, but if I were shopping for a PRS guitar from the 10 Top collection, I'd probably prefer the figuring to be uniformly straight over the whole top. Nevertheless, they're asking $1,200 for this guitar, which is REALLY damn good for what it is. Not sure why the fretboard has dot inlays rather than the typical PRS birds. But they have other pics detailing the AWFUL refretting job someone did on it at some point. Look at THIS bullshit. Whoever did this... SHOULDN'T have... and shouldn't ever try such a thing again. They chewed the ends of the frets off with a file without polishing anything smooth, and it looks like the file probably bit into parts of the fretboard edge as they worked. If you're gonna level, file, and polish frets, they make these semi-flexible metal guards that expose the fret and cover the fretboard to PREVENT you from fucking up like that.  ::)



So yeah, totally worth EVEN LESS than 1200 bucks after that. :D

Georgia Tech shut out Alcorn. Pretty sad when a school like Alcorn gets a GIFT FROM GOD like a major game vs a school like Georgia Tech with their minor conference run option playbook and then they can't even score ONE SINGLE POINT in the game. Didn't see that coming. Good for GT doing some dominating for once.

Georgia shut out Austin Peay. I was not worried that they'd lose this one. I was not worried that it would be close at all. What I was worried about was that Georgia would play kinda lazy towards the end and not shut them out like they SHOULD. My argument is that Alabama doesn't show any mercy to these freebie win schools, they run up the score as high as possible and hold them to ZERO, and that's why they get such favorable consideration in rankings and playoff seedings.

This Appalachian State vs Penn State game has me befuddled though. GO APP STATE! ;D

edit: NNYAUGH! So close, App State, so close.  :raincloud:

Found an old video of Darrell doing a guitar clinic at some small-ish guitar shop in Texas. Dunno exactly when this was. Probably sometime around 1994-ish.

Some of them are plain old dumbass ding-a-lings just like their congregation members and they actually believe the shit they're spewing. But then you have these mega-church guys. They are unremarkable money loving shitheads, period. And then you have these SUPER mega-church guys like Joel Osteen. And one hand, I think Osteen is a chickenshit fraud because he chooses to ignore and whitewash the more negative aspects of Christian teachings like the anti-women verse I quoted earlier. He refuses to take a stand against homosexuality even when you corner him and ask him about it point blank. But on the other hand... maybe you could view him as LESS of a piece of shit than other pastors. Is he taking that stance because it's good for business, or is he just trying to dump off all the ridiculous negative bullshit that people hate Christianity for simply because he knows it's such a prehistoric and stupid way to regard things?

He's just NEVER gonna win with me. Doesn't matter what he does. Even if he quits tomorrow, I'll still think he's a chickenshit for quitting. Either he's a mask-wearing money-grubbing fraud who's selling sunshine and butterflies instead of the fire and brimstone that the bible is known for... or he's genuine but he's a new age revisionist Christian too chickenshit to mention negative things like Hell, sin, and death.

Yeah, from the New Testament of the holy bible.

Religions kinda fucked up sometimes, huh? But people keep right on wasting their sundays going to church, giving these assholes 10% of their paycheck because of superstition. People wanna call drug dealers deplorable human beings. What about pastors? They have no conscience either, AND they don't pay taxes, just like drug dealers. The reason why more drug dealers don't become pastors is because they have MORE of a conscience.
