    except that it's totally possible to be wildly toxic and condescending without profanity. which this forum frequently is. and the "no politics" rule is a joke. nothing reactionary or jingoistic ever gets cut.

    what kind of self delusion? like, oh, this isn't green, something has gone terribly wrong with the rods and cones in my eyes?

    why do you think "cotton candy" colors look "out of place and stupid"? should we only play wood colored guitars? is there dye in any of your clothing? do you season your food? do you use reverb when you play?

    Some come and post "off-topic conversation threads" just to commiserate with one another. It's the next best thing to being at the bar with your buds, and you don't have to buy a drink.
    I try to get involved in only guitar related threads (obvioiusly this is an exception, albeit a brief one). It's a guitar/music forum, not Dr. Phil or Oprah.

    Since you haven't figured it out yet, that is what his particular sub-forum is for.

    I used to build partscasters and homebrew amps. This is what first drew me to TDPRI in 2006.
    I no longer own a tele, having gone back to short scale guitars like my 2010 PRS se single cut korina. I don't build amps any longer and really, no longer feel the urge.
    So, in the meantime, I've gotten old and grumpy with nothing to keep my hands busy.
    I guess I could play guitar, but that's a lot of work.
    I'll think of something.

    Woof-a-doodle
