  1. This Blackface is pretty interesting- Cheap Thrills Blackface
  2. Saw vids from the tour, DLR was waaaaay better than the Vegas debacle. Still not 1980 good, but what I saw was enjoyable.

  4. Sully is a master. Congrats!
  5. Secret to covers for me? Screw wax- carpet tape is the way to go. Crazy strong adhesive, all it takes is a thin strip down the middle, clap 'em fo a minute or two and the seal is fantastic with no gap to promote microphonic nonsense. A little dab of solder on each side per usual and Bob's yer uncle. Oh, and nickel is the only way to fly...
  6. Surprised Billie claimed to have never heard of VH. Born in southern Cali, both parents in the entertainment industry (music and acting) and of proper VH fan age, and older brother (and musical partner) Finneas a multi-instrumentalist and actor who would definitely know who VH is (he was on Glee, and they played some VH on that show). I think it was a purposeful "amnesia", perhaps aimed at generating some pub... duh.
  7. Love it, G! Dibs (my first ever dib call)!
  8. Deltronics in Woodridge has worked well for me. http://www.deltronics.com/our-locations
  9. And that he had a condo made of stone-ah...
  10. That is one of the tastiest burst finishes I have ever seen. Congrats!!!
  11. Get the Callaham upgrades for the Bigs, it'll change your world. Or even better, replace that Bigs with a Duesenberg. Like going from a Pinto to a Lamborghini.
