I'm a USA homer but have largely enjoyed all of the games so far. Portugal vs. Ghana yesterday got a little crazy at the end. Shame I can't watch any of the games tomorrow, on the clock while the USA-England game is on.
I live in central Jersey now but lived up in North Jersey until about a year ago. Even up to the time that I left the livebearer scene was very active and I had my hands on some fairly uncommon fish. I'm not in any clubs or societies, just a couple old school forums like this one.
Guppies and endlers are particularly close relatives but not the same species (guppies are Poecilia reticulata, endlers are Poecilia wingei). The two can interbreed and endler-guppy hybrids are very common as well.
Of course I have a QT tank, I've been doing this for over half of my life now. I know what I'm doing, I'm not going to just shove some fish into an established tank. They get at least two weeks in there. Meds because the endler had a couple ich spots.
I just heard Smoke on the Water for the first time in full today at work. Don't get the hype behind it. It was okay at best, at least better then the rest of the holiday music they were playing all day. But that's a pretty low bar.
An update to my original post in this thread:
Eliminate the salary cap in MLS
Host future World Cups in countries that actually deserve it
Less college basketball and football on national TV, it's okay in small doses but it's way overdone
Completely eliminate hockey (sorry hockey fans, just...
My second biggest hobby to music is keeping freshwater aquariums. I've been keeping a small endler colony since March now and grabbed a new, bigger male to add some genetic diversity to the bloodline, a few more amano shrimp, and a gorgeous male honey gourami to rule the tank/eat excess fry. I...
Guitar music would be beyond boring if we judged everyone on technical skill and nothing else. I wouldn't want to participate in that kind of musical world, either. I want guitarists who can make me feel things. Technique is one of the last things I think about when deciding if I like a...
The only guitar I ever really freaked over was the Gibson SG... I mention Gibson because I didn't really grasp how amazing the SG was until I had my Epiphone SG. And when I knew that a Gibson was in the fold, it had to be black. I wanted one like the black Tony Iommi ones but without the cross...
I use Spotify/Youtube in concert. I have over 1000 artists liked on my Spotify profile but there's a lot of things that aren't on Spotify that I need to grab on YT. Most of Noothgrush's discography, a lot of Japanese doom/sludge/death metal, stuff like that.
I've mentioned it a couple times on this forum before, but here goes:
A younger me was finally about to purchase my first 'good' ($500+) guitar. They had this single cut PRS in silverburst with some EMGs in it, used for something like $750-800. Played great, sounded great, but I turned it down...
Woke up too early. Worked our closing shift. Ate some taco/tortilla soup that was kind of cold. Just another run of the mill, regular day really.
I do have Wed/Thurs off though, first time I've had back to back off days since I got this job.
I obviously prefer an SG but there's a reason why I have a strat and don't have a tele, you know? I don't outright hate the tele like I once did but they just do nothing for me. I respect it but I'll never touch one.
I know that my opinion on steak is controversial and probably wrong, but bear with me.
I don't love expensive cuts. I'd rather grab a strip or skirt then anything else. Marinated in something, cooked well done (burnt, please). I think that just a plain steak, seasoned with salt/pepper is a...
Eh, not necessarily glad that the Astros won but am glad to see the Phillies lose. Glad for Dusty too, he deserved this and isn't all wrapped up in the old Astros BS.
Another fun season in the bag. Already excited for April.
I flip between picks these days. For my two higher tuned guitars I stick with the black Jazz IIIs. For the SG in B and my seven string, I like the Ernie Ball Prodigy 2.0s, mini shape. Pretty much the same pick, just a thicker one for lower tunings.
