    I just hate thieves...

    Playing golf a couple of weeks ago. It took the thieves 1:03 minutes from the time he got out of the van, cut off my catalytic converters (all four) and got back in the van and left. The cops watched the video and said they were pros. The cut man even had a female look out watching for traffic...

    Its the little things...

    I played golf yesterday. I play at least 9 holes of golf once a week usually and not for the exercise although I try to do a little of that while I am on the course. I have always been a hacker who was more concerned with the cart that brings you drink and food than actually playing good golf...

    Preacher Movie review - House of Gucci

    So Preacher had a business trip last week and since it was one of those long flights he took in a movie. Full disclaimer here, Preacher doesn't do R rated movies usually (personal choice) but Southwest airs a PG13 version of R rated movies so the little one next to you doesn't have to see all...

    NOGD and NAD

    To my detriment I can't seem to keep from looking on FB Marketplace for stuff I don't need. Guitars, amps, golf clubs, car parts, pots and pans, motorcycles, you name it FaceBook thinks I need it. But on occasion something will catch my eye. So here is the story. About four years ago I sold my...

    "Hello Friends" the Masters is starting!

    In the immortal words of Jim Nance, "hello friends, welcome to the Masters" I am not sure what compels me to anticipate and watch this event. I am a horrible golfer who doesn't have any money and hates pimento and cheese sandwiches. Btu I can not just not watch this Golf event. I would rather...

    Preacher movie review: The Lost City

    Well the Mrs. and I were at the movies again. My wife decided she wanted to go out to our favorite steakhouse last night, something about her skipping lunch and being ravenous. So we make the drive out to this tiny place along I45, in the middle of nowhere for these steaks that are just...

    Preacher movie review: The Batman

    So Mrs. Preacher and I took in a movie last week. It was my pick as the last two Mrs. Preacher got to pick the movie so I cashed all my chips in and said, "Let's go watch the new Batman movie." Mrs. Preacher said, "I thought he retired after the last Batman movie and married Anne Hatheway?" I...

    Spreading the Good News

    Of Guitar playing that is. I had a quick trip to the Land of the Mouse and Humidity this week for work. After a bumpy plane ride I hailed a taxi at the airport and settled in for the half hour drive to my destination. My driver was playing this on his radio... I have been working on a song...

    Preacher Movie Review: Uncharted

    Well Preacher and the Mrs. were at it again, we decided to go to the movies! This time it is the action movie, "Uncharted" starring Tom "Spiderman" Holland, Mark "Marky Mark" Wahlberg, and Antonio "roll your RRRRRs" Banderas! My wife is a Tom Holland fan as well as a Mark Wahlberg fan so...

    WM Open in Phoenix

    Loudest Hole in Golf. I just love this event because of how they have it set up. A stadium par three where it is party time and the players know they have to deal with the crowd noise, it is just part of it. This is not the Masters, it is the Waste Management Open, what do you expect from a...

    Death on the Nile

    So I have found myself fascinated with the movies lately. Maybe it is because our movie theatre, ahem, entertainment complex, as it is now called, was recently remodeled with the plush recliner seats and the newest sound systems that are so loud and clear but don't seem to handle dialogue all...

    It's cold down here in Tejas!

    Currently 23 and supposed to get down to 15 later today. Might get about freezing late tomorrow, if not maybe Saturday. That's about a 1/4" of ice with some freezing rain on top of it blended with a little snow. Supposed to get some more freezing rain today as well. A lot of Texans are having...

    Book of Boba Fett - Star Wars fans

    So I am a Star Wars nerd since I was a kid in 1977 and Mom took me and my brothers to "Star Wars, a New Hope" in the theatre in Bentonville Arkansas. I have lived through the highs (The Empire Strikes Back) and the lows (The Phantom Menace). My kids have become fans as well and we have eagerly...

    Fender Rumble 200 issues

    OK, I picked up a non working Fender Rumble 200 the other day with the hope that it would be a quick fix. Something like a blown fuse, a bad solder joint or a disconnected speaker. Here is where it stands. The fan and the LED come on when the power is engaged but I get nothing through the...

    Christmas Lists?

    Since my kids are all adults now for a few years we have just drawn names out of the hat and bought one gift for that person. Of course I have to get my wife a gift also, that is optional if I want to live a long and joyous life. So my kids made an Amazon wish list for each of us. We go to...

    Peavey Classic 30 dilemma...

    So a friend of mine was in town for the weekend and the girls decided to go shopping. The boys decided to spend the afternoon messing with DAW interfaces and then decided to leave the house to go to? Guitar Center!! He lives three hours from his nearest guitar center and when I told him there...

    What did I just buy?

    I was browsing FB Marketplace the other day and stumbled on something I had not seen before. Well, that is not exactly true, I had seen one similar to it that a friend had back in Springfield MO in the late 90's. The spralted Maple body design was very interesting. The inlay on the...

    Got a spare kidney..... bean?

    As someone who really started to get into guitar in the late 90's I remember when these came out. I had a kid in one of the worship bands I was in bring one with him to rehearsal one time. And for some reason we all, and when I say, "WE" I mean guitarist one and all hated these little units...

    I have lost the mojo...

    So last night I was making dinner for the wife and I. I had gone shopping at HEB and picked out a couple of really nice Sirloins that were at least a foot long and six inches wide. I also grabbed a bag of potatoes while I was there and figured it was a good night for steak and taters. So as I...

    PSA... Don't listen with your eyes

    It happened again. Had a guest worship leader at church last weekend sporting an acoustic guitar. He brings in his case with stickers all over it and pulls out an Alvarez Acoustic guitar. He places it on a guitar stand on stage, plugs into a direct box and goes to get a bottle of water. Two of...

    Rewire that bass board he thought...

    to get rid of the buzz that suddenly started. A little backstory, I typically make my own patch cables and when I first started out I did not do my due diligence so I had a few that would break the solders if handled roughly. So at rehearsal my bass has this buzz. Fretless JD Fiver with...

    End of an era...

    With the passing of some great musicians I started pondering what will the future hold musically? Bands of my youth, The Stones and ZZ Top to name a few have both lost members lately, both of them 70+ year of age. Do you think the younger people churning out music today will keep making music...

    NGD

    I need to really stay off the classifieds in my area. I just happened on this little beauty and saw it was offered way below what they show selling on Reverb. I am not sure it has even been played it is so mint. First Act Garage Master - I am Farfegnugen-ed!
