    So I mentioned Orange County Choppers recently and how fake that show was...

    Using cheap parts and a fancy paint job to make something that is more for looks than to be a quality product. Sounds like how I build guitars. Of course I don't have all that contrived (and annoying) family drama.

    G&L's Placentia, the worst name for a product line ever?

    "For this new line of gear, what do you think of calling it 'Placentia'?" "I think that's a terrible name." "Oh.... Wow. This is awkward. I already ordered the decals, store signage and t-shirts". "This might be a good time to discuss your impulse buying habits when you've been drinking."

    What crazy guitar would you like to own some day?

    Stump Preacher or Klein Weird, since I don't really go for headless guitars

    Need wall art for the home office

    I was thinking of a full size framed print of a guitar blueprint pdf.

    Is there a guitar you would like to buy, but doesn't exist?

    Not sure if it exists but a baritone XII jazzmaster. Maybe a Bass XII, a 12 string version of a Bass VI. Not sure if the neck would hold that much string tension for either of these. Veillette did offer a Bari 12 but I never heard if there was neck problems.

    What's your stupid, short joke today??

    I was in a restaurant that had a sign "Breakfast Any Time", so I ordered French toast during the Renaissance. (Stephen Wright) "All day breakfast "? I don't have time for that. (ibid)

    McCartney's 1960 LH LP Burst, or his legendary Hofner Violin Bass?

    I'd say the Hofner. Many who don't know about guitars, basses recognize it. I would even say most cartoonists and caricature artists who don't know gear draw Paul with it.

    Stupid person Crashes Ford GT

    My thought process: Idiot? That sounds a bit harsh- (reads headline) Oh, the OP is quoting the article. Still, that's a bit... (reads article). Yeah, what an idiot.

    Extremely Long Songs or Songs Meant to be Played in Order as One Piece of music That You Love?

    Excellent choices. I would add "Crises". Not as good as the others but still worth a listen. For a bit I listened to a classic rock station and on Sundays they would play more "deep cuts". When they would play "Long Distance " they would go into "The Fish" but use it as background for the...

    Subway rant - as if you need me to tell you

    Is my brain remembering wrong or was the food better years back? I remember first discovered Subway, the sandwiches had a different consistency, were cut differently, tasted better and the steak and cheese was a better quality. Then it seems sometime during the 90s they switched things around...

    Extremely Long Songs or Songs Meant to be Played in Order as One Piece of music That You Love?

    Genesis "Supper's Ready" I had 3 versions on my phone and lived almost exactly the right distance from work to hear it on my morning commute. Rush 2112.

    Well worth a listen

    I am another that likes his singing in the right song. If it's not in the right song, he is annoying. Good: I Keep Forgetting, Taking It To The Streets, his vocals on Steely Dan songs Annoying: Ya Mo Be There, It Keeps You Running, and pretty much everything he's done since 1984 or so. Plus...

    Weapon Recoil and Noise

    I suggest you go to youtube and wikipedia to look up shotgun types. When you say "automatic shotgun ", do you mean a shotgun that fires many rounds per second? Also, I think a search for "shotgun dB level " and a list of various dB levels would be useful. Give you a comparison noise to give...
