    The Replacements

    From 1981: Going by the date, this was done before their first album was released. So the songs aren't really there, but they had the performance aspects nailed early. I love it in the last song of the first set, when Westerberg's guitar is completely out of tune, and he barely seems to care.

    Question about Fender amp layouts:

    Regarding the official factory Fender layouts - are the eyelet boards to scale? i.e. if I printed one the proper size, could it be used as a drill guide? Or are they just illustrations?

    What's wrong with this picture?

    I already had this socket mounted in a chassis, and had soldered connections to pins 8, 7, 6, "3", "2", and "1" before I discovered something didn't add up.

    What the heck are these guitars?

    Bass and 12 string players in "The Daily Flash" have some odd looking instruments. Anyone know what they are? I believe they were a real band, from Seattle or somewhere in the Pacific Northwest.

    Milk - Is this possible?

    I bought a pint of milk last month because I needed a cup for a recipe. I looked in the fridge today and saw the milk, thought I should throw it out, so I checked the expiration date: DEC 23 21. It was purchased in July. How is that possible?

    I Am A Passive Victim

    Today I went for some Chinese take-out. I ordered "L17 Szechuan Beef, steamed rice, egg roll, hot & sour soup, to go". I got a check for $15.99, almost twice what it should be. And paid. She vanished too quickly for me to work up to asking how the $6.99 luncheon special could be $15.99 with...

    Chassis punch?

    What size Greenlee punch are you guys using for Belton octal sockets? A standard octal used to be 1 1/8", but the Beltons are a little bit bigger than that aren't they?

    I had to buy a new box of sandwich bags today, and noticed they've made a change: The old one is on the left, new one on the right. Just another example of how "they" remove value from the things we buy. Feel free to post your own examples of decontenting.

    Repro Blackface Knobs?

    On original Fender blackface amps from the '60s, some amps had knobs with the setscrew by #10, and some had it at #1. Looking online at the various amp parts dealers, it seems that all the new knobs have the screw at #1. My '63 Deluxe-Amp has #10 knobs, do you know of a source for those? I...
