    The Ringle Factor: Are your neighbors always outside when you are?

    Not yet but if your 3,333rd post is about the ringle factor you will then be nuts. And it will be a thing.

    String buzz even with high neck relief and action

    Oh right several frets can be high, but you can't have 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13 and 14 ALL be high! I'm still uncertain that it's not some other thing like an oddly shaped saddle that's buzzing, if the low E buzzes on the whole damn neck? I find though that almost every new neck has a few...

    String buzz even with high neck relief and action

    Very very odd for all frets from 1st to 14th to buzz with big relief and high action. Not odd on the upper frets but odd on say 1-8. If the 8th fret is the bottom of the relief then pulling the string down into the bottom of that hollow it makes sense for the string to get too close to the frets...

    Damn. I just spent a couple of hours google searching Vietnam war photographs and it’s all a blur of the horrors of war, plus that particular time when I was waiting my turn to go but then it ended. None of the many names stuck out as one in particular so who knows what I was thinking. That work...

    Longboarding

    SHE was delightful to watch, oh yes. Never saw anyone dancing on a board like that, but had it been a dude I don’t think I would have stuck with it to the end.

    Longboarding

    You’re funny! I’m not gonna argue with you though... Not sure what year but my first was a 2x4 with trucks & wheels off a rink skate. Never wore any protective gear besides gloves from hardware store or ski shops. I made a long board in maybe 79 but found it boring just because long enough...

    There was a Vietnam war photographer I loved the work of and can't remember now, I think he would have been in say Life Magazine but not gallery shows, at least during his lifetime. Some photogs imbue tangible soul along with compelling visuals. Of course there were many in that line of work but...

    Pets? Unable to speak?? Since when???? Notably we don’t even have a cat but this Sam fellow brings us a vole on days we open a can of fancy feast. We don’t associate with his humans but he is a regular houseguest and speaks quite clearly!

    String buzz even with high neck relief and action

    In fairness to the tech though, after the tech did the setup the customer increased relief to .018 and raised the action further so the techs setup was arguably ruined by the customer. Then bringing it back and telling the tech "you screwed it up again" is like finishing dinner then telling the...

    String buzz even with high neck relief and action

    Fretted at what fret? You say the low E buzzes when fretted; where though, everywhere? Too much relief adds buzz on upper frets but not on the first few frets. Adding relief is not moving toward a solution BTW.

    It's 32 degrees and you're driving on the highway...

    I'd have to check if my Volvo lights have an off option but it is a valuable feature to have a switch that allows you to turn off the damn lights! Kind of strange really to make it illegal to turn off your lights when parked warming up the car or after a jump start trying to charge up the battery?

    It's 32 degrees and you're driving on the highway...

    I drove all the way across NY State on I-90 and about half way we got a nice blizzard (or several). Three of us in my '67 Buick Riviera, hard to see far, deep rutted snow and plows not often coming along. Hit a drift in the middle of the highway and it just sent us right off into the wide grassy...

    It's 32 degrees and you're driving on the highway...

    Right, areas that aren't geared up for the freeze or snow are no go. In NYC when it snowed more than IDK 6-8", everything shut down because they really can't plow with no shoulder. One storm in maybe 1991 my street was not cleared for a week and there were footprints on top of car humps, we just...

    It's 32 degrees and you're driving on the highway...

    Seriously though the listed specs, 32f, clear but damp pavement, and salt? That's just not an icy condition, not at all. Unless the municipality isn't used to winter and the "salt" isn't really there. First freeze of the season I don't assume the roads are well salted. Or if there was flooding...

    10% over the speed limit. Maine winters the roads North of Augusta and East of 95 are (or were when i lived up there) white hard pack all winter. I've driven 200 miles on sheet ice. I've driven 50 miles in a blizzard that mostly allowed me to see most of the length of the hood, drove by the feel...

    Are You A Tourist In Your Own Town?

    Kinda like when i lived in Brooklyn, but did everything in Manhattan and knew most of Manhattan pretty well to like the back of my hand, but really only knew my corner of Brooklyn plus 10%. Actually I think a lot of Manhattan while being thought of as worldly sophisticated, has locals who really...

    Where’s Your Happy Place?

    I can relate, it's a bit different from those whose happy place is about taking a trip to a vacation or local favorite destination. One thing I have is unpredictable windows of time where I'm in less that usual pain, or at least some parts of me are in less or little pain. I've been icing my RH...

    PUBLIC ART. I LOVE IT!

    I took this pic in the early ‘90s but it was in the pile of rolls I never processed until maybe 2010. X-Rays or whatever turn old rolls gray over time, then I scanned the B&W neg on a $100 printer scanner and this is a crop digital print that’s also not aged well. I suck at managing my stuff and...

    PUBLIC ART. I LOVE IT!

    Here’s a couple of pics I shot from the hip of the then still standing public art gallery known as the Berlin Wall. The top one is I guess riffing on Guernica, comparing that Spanish history vs East West stuff. The bottom pic is two young Russian girls flaunting the Western luxuries in the form...

    Favourite photographers?

    The whole no cropping ideal is a strange one for the medium and I recall many in the ‘70s seemed to value that. My reaction was opposite and I kind of think using a tripod for 35mm is nutty, I almost had the codfish eggs/ digital ethic when shooting film as if the results didn’t even matter as...

    Favourite photographers?

    I’m guessing that’s Tony Alva based on hair and hat but the deck looks just like my Hobie Mike Weed model and mine has the same mid tracks but different wheels. Nobody took no pics of me getting air (in the ‘70s) though!
