Bought one of these overpriced little whores today. Cost me about $185. EHX makes another octave above and below pedal called the MicroPOG, but it only does 1 octave above and one octave below your dry signal note. And the MicroPOG costs $205, which is really weird to me, because it seems like the Pitch Fork does more but somehow costs less. :-\

This one, you can select the interval of the pitch from 4th's to perfect 5ths to 1 octave up and down, 2 full octaves up and down, or 3 full octaves up and down. And as you see from the toggle switch you can select only the up or down pitch or BOTH, and with the LATCH button, it turns the switch into a momentary switch which makes the pedal swiftly bend the note up or down for whammy-like effects. One really cool thing about it is if you turn the octave selector all the way down to 0, it gives a detune effect. I dunno if you've ever heard one before, but it's kinda like a chorus effect... but different. I had a detune effect module on my Digitech rack processor that I used quite a bit to get a wide spacious kinda Zakk Wylde chorus sound.

About the "greek salad bitch": I have to assume that was an online order and something reprinted from what the customer requested in a text field. Nobody who ever worked at a pizza joint was industrious enough to give a shit to type all that out themselves no matter how funny they might've thought it to be.

I'm still kinda wanting an original mid-90's green Russian bubble font Sovtek Big Muff fuzz. And Guitar Center finally has one in their inventory they're asking 250 for, but it's pretty rough looking so I'm gonna pass.

And the Russian years for Sovtek/Electro-Harmonix was a pretty odd period. They had problems with all sorts of things. During the short "tall font" period of the Big Muff pedal, they had issues with shitty paint, which is why most of the tall font Big Muffs you see now have bubbles under the paint and big spots where the paint has chipped off. They had troubles attaining parts with the same values, so some potentiometers had different values than others, certain batches had different values to apparently identical resistors and such, etc.

But this is the first one I've seen with a mid-word fuck up on the output jack. :D

Was it "targeting"? Looked like the crown of his helmet hit the underside of the QB's face grid.

Modern Edukayshun



I DVR'd that Serengeti show that Discovery premiered Sunday night, and I was watching it last night thinking... at what point do the lefty windbags start infiltrating nature shows and cherry picking things and only showing things that support their philosophies. For example, when a female lion and her 4 cubs got pushed out of a pack... I wonder how many emails they'll get from these loony fuckers complaining that their "nature show" about fucking "WILD animals" doesn't support the modern progressive concepts of inclusiveness and universal acceptance.

And then I wake up this morning and see this. And I am now assured that, yes, such people do exist and they are completely serious about these ridiculous ideas.

The future of humanity looks bleaker by the day.

Unfortunately, many of these polls from the major pollsters are self-admittedly biased in favor of Democrats. Some are worse than others, and it's kinda unclear if it's intentional or unintentional due to the specific demographics they may target for opinions. But just from looking at that... I'd assume a good 55% or more of the people they asked were 18-25.

And HOW - THE - FUCK do Nixon and Johnson get more favorites than Truman, and AS MANY as Roosevelt? That's Fishy as fuck right there.

A little more info about the major pollsters:

If you scroll down to the graph, it would appear that "plus-minus" and "avg error" might be the most important stats, but look at the last column. ALL of them show bias towards the Democrat candidate.

This guy REALLY likes to say the word butthole a lot.

Still haven't touched the tubes in my Rockerverb head. Took the amp to a different Guitar Center a few weeks ago (the main one in Atlanta), and they assured me it was working properly. *shrugs*

The more I've played it, the quieter it's become. Perhaps these shitty chinese tubes require a break-in period. It still produces a little bit of microphonic hum past the 1:30 to 3oclock mark on the gain dial, but it's nothing I can't deal with.

But the main reason for this post... Do old strings sound better than new ones? Indeed they do. See for yourself. :dohdohdoh:
