That's what I thought, Neil.  All about presentation.  ;)

I do wish they had some kind of protective screen or mesh over the speakers.  Can't wait to see how they sound...

Home again.  Didn't get the network/wi-fi finished at the school, have to go back again Thursday.

Sampson monitors are here, hopefully I can get them set up tomorrow and test them out on a mix I need to do.  They look good...

I can relate, Smurf.  Yesterday I made it 10-12 miles at 20mph before I turned around and came back.  Icy ruts pulling the car all over, and twice pulled me onto the center line with semi's coming the other way.  Scary...

Sampson monitors are supposed to be here UPS tomorrow sometime.  I have to go do a network job at a school, so I won't get to try them out till Wednesday.  But I have some mixing to do, so I'll let y'all know how they work...

Crazy snow storm today.  Going to have to plow, shovel, and scoop.  And probably again tomorrow...  >:(

I know, right?  I used to climb right in there.  Not anymore.

Two years ago I had to pull the exhaust manifold and some other things just to get to the back 3 plugs on one of the cars just to do a tuneup.

I hear ya Joom...our old 1/2 tons you could climb in beside the engine and almost close the hood,,, now you have to almost remove the motor to change a fan belt lol

I've got a pile of tools and testers that weren't even thought of 50 years ago.  Aside from basic drive train axle stuff, you have to start with an OBD tester just to know what might be going on.

I've always said I'd love to have a 1965 'anything' in good shape to fix up and drive...

Things have definitely changed a lot from back in the day of simple carburetors and distributors with points, Buster.  I could fix most things on the road with a few tools.  Not any more...

You guys are doing well. The 1st car I owned I took out the engine and gearbox, removed all the parts, had the engine o'hauled, put it all back in, re-timed it and drove it away. The new truck, I can't name a single thing under the hood.

And yeah, garage and pole barn, both full of motorcycles and dirt bikes, mowers, and a ton of other crap.  Been promising myself to clean them out for a long time and give myself a work area...

Same here, Red.  Back in the 70's before I got into computers I was a licensed mechanic, and I still refuse to pay somebody else to do what I can do.  Most of the time...

I'm with you Joom. I do all our car maintenance, have a 3 car garage and can't park a single car in it.  :/

Because Neil asked for it...
« on: October 03, 2017, 07:45:32 PM »
Well, Neil, turned out to be a busy day, but I finally grabbed a minute for this.  I have no idea where I should have gone from that shoutbox beginning, but this is what my fingers did.  I'm not claiming it's good or usable.  Use it, use parts of it, use it as a starting point, or just pretend you didn't see it...  :-*


Well it’s 2017 and I’m watching the screen
But the news blows me away
Arguing, fighting, talkin’ bout war
And it gets worse every day

I see people protesting
And the cops arresting
Everybody who doesn’t comply
Things have gone from good
To bad to worse
In the twinkling of an eye

Now they say there's no such thing as fake news
And no such thing as lies
That everything now is alternative facts
But it's time you realize

That watching the news
I can only conclude
The world we know
.........is screwed

Left or right it doesn’t really matter
Why can’t we just agree
We should do the right thing
Instead of always getting caught
Between the devil and the deep blue sea

It seems to me that it should be so easy
For us all to just get along
Because in the end, and this is just my opnion
For whatever that might be worth
You and me and everybody else
Are all just citizens
..........of the planet Earth
A computer once beat me at chess, but as it turns out it was no match for me at kickboxing...

Just came from a little thing I did in the shoutbox, Ag, and Neil said it should be a song.  So I spent a full 3-4 minutes on it.  And it shows.  (-!)

Basically, it's not for anything.  Just kicks and grins...  ;)

Nicely done Joom!
I can't decide between an AcDc, Motörhead, Metallica/Maiden/Priest/Hawkwind or Sabbath style toon.... lol
I'll mess around till something sticks like usual I guess lol
Unless you had a feeling in mind when you scribbled it  ;D

Ags,  get that Epi LP fired up.....you're doing kick ass solos on this.....
It's either that or drums  :P

If I had to pick, Neil, it would be either an AcDc or Sabbath style.  But I learned a long time ago that great things can come from different ideas...

Hmmm, Sabbath huh?
I kinda like that idea.....

If we're gonna go that route then we definitely need to rope in the @Smurf for the drums.....

And no...I DID NOT play left handed...no matter what it sounds like :P

I like that, Neil.  Just enough of a dirty/gritty/aggressive feel to it that a song like this needs.

Can't wait to hear the vocal match to the tune...
