THE OLD FOLKS' HOME _________________________________________________________ Hate today's music and everything related to it? Are smart phones just a bunch of useless features that get in the way of your ability to use one? Do modeling amps have too many knobs and buttons for you to play through without severe distraction? Does ANY amp made after 1965 have absolutely no reason to exist? Is anybody, EXCEPT Tommy Emmanuel, who plays quickly, fluently, and uses scales more complex than the pentatonic minor, lacking in soul and simply wheedlie-deedling? Does the thought of an amplifier with more than fifteen watts power output put you into involuntary spasms, and create in you an irresistible urge to point out just how wrong everybody who uses one of these "monsters" is? Does the thought of plugging an effects pedal into your computer in order to fine-tune and save the parameters to your personal preference seem like way too much work? Does the thought of an effects pedal with more than two knobs on it send you into a rage? Does the thought of using ANY pedal send you into a rage? When you hear the words "Mesa/Boogie", is the first thought in your head "I'd rather spend my time playing instead of turning knobs"? Do you get instantly defensive whenever anybody posts a rant about people who do exactly the speed limit in the fast lane? ________________________________________________________ If you can honestly answer "yes" to any five (or more) of these questions, then it is indeed possible that a new sub-forum might be just what the doctor ordered. The mods will be happy to keep the temperature set to eighty degrees in that area for your personal comfort, and the "no politics" rule will not apply, because nobody has had a serious argument about Harry Truman's policies in over fifty years. ________________________________________________________ If anybody gets all worked up over this post (and feels the need to throw a tantrum) because they think that it is in any way serious, then I propose another potential new sub-forum: The STICK-UP-THE-BUTT HIGH-HORSE-RIDING SOAPBOX PREACHERS Area. ________________________________________________________ That is all. Have a wonderful evening, kids.
