    Lou Reed, the Music Snob

    Yeah - that's where I am. Having some songs that are popular does not make you an instant expert on all facets of music.

    Where’s Your Happy Place?

    Back when a trip to McD’s was a special treat - before they started supersizing everything (including their customers’ waistlines & BP!)

    I don't want to sharpen my knives

    When you are sharpening, you are removing metal and dealing with things like chips and other imperfections in the edge. Honing simply realigns the cutting edge without removing steel. It is useful to bringing an edge back to good condition between sharpening sessions. I hone my kitchen knives...

    What brand of boots do you wear?

    I have a pair of 30-something year old Justin Ropers in shrunken shoulder leather that have been resoled numerous times, a pair of Florsheim "no drip no slip" lace up black ankle boots, and a pair of Clark's desert boots in beeswax leather. We're moving to Wisconsin (after 35 years in...

    Cheap (under $300 CDN) SS amp recommendation for rehearsal space?

    Frankly, I'd stay away from the Peavey Bandit. New, they're about $500. They have been out in so many different guises (e.g. teal, red, black, etc.) and with so many different speaker configurations that I think it's intellectually dishonest to recommend them without specificity, because (in...

    Cheap (under $300 CDN) SS amp recommendation for rehearsal space?

    I'd say in that price range a Boss Katana 50 may be a good choice. I've not played one, but they get pretty good press and at $250 (at least in the US) give you the ability to get loud enough (50 watts) to hang in with whatever everybody else is using.

    Which Speaker for Monoprice 5 watt Upgrade

    This - I have one in a champ-ish (i.e. 6v6) amp and it plays nice until it gets mad. Then it starts to growl - in a good way!

    Just Bought a Player Telecaster! (aka Please Help a Newbie)

    Yup - the Standards stopped including a gig bag at some point in the mid-2010s and the Player Series have never included a bag.

    Liquid Drain Cleaner

    We've used the "volcano" method (the aforementioned baking soda/vinegar) on several occasions where it has worked. When it hasn't the plunger or snake has always done the trick. Flushing harsh, corrosive chemicals down the pipes is bad, m'kay!
