I will be in NYC in a few weeks with one night free to see a show. choices are:

Patti Smith at the Beacon
The Black Lips at the Bowery

Once my answering machine message was a clip from "I Got the Message" by Men Without Hats. This should probably be in the confessions thread. It's not anything like that now. And hasn't been since I've been using a cell phone.

How damned stupid is this:


Provocative clothing nearly got Southwest passenger booted
azcentral.com
Sept. 7, 2007 12:19 PM

A woman flying from San Diego to Tucson was told by Southwest Airlines that she was dressed too provocatively and needed to change her clothes to remain on the flight, she said on the Today show.

On the televised broadcast that can also be found on MSNBC.com Web site, Kyla Ebbert said she was seated with her legs crossed and a magazine on her lap when a flight attendant summoned her to the front of the plane.

"He tells me I'm sorry you're going to have to catch a later flight," Ebbert said. "You are dressed inappropriately. I'm sorry, this is a family airline."

She said that he also told her, "You are dressed too provocatively to fly on this flight."

The attendant suggested that she change her clothes, Ebbert said. When she told him she was making the trip to see a doctor in Arizona, he suggested that she buy some clothes at the gift shop. At that point, Ebbert said, she offered to hold her sweater closed, and she was allowed to go back to her seat.

When she asked what was wrong with her clothes, "he said, everything."

In a response, Southwest responded there were concerns about her clothing, according to the video clip.

"As a compromise, we asked her to adjust her clothing, she complied."

"I was really embarrassed," Ebbert said. She arrived in Tucson crying and phoned her mother.

They are seeking an apology from the airport or may sue.

Ebbert said that, ironically, on her return flight, a female flight attendant complimented her about the same outfit.


OK let me get this straight.. the flight attendant's comments made her cry, and she's so damaged that she's thinking about suing.. and yet she wore the exact same outfit on the flight home? Something here does not compute.

ZVEX is a great company. There are only about 6 people that work there. Two of them just sit there and hand paint their pedals.
Fuzz factory is also a pedal used quite a bit by Muse and is all over the latest White Stripes record. It's a crazy bastard of a pedal, but you can get some nasty leads out of it.

They also make the :
Wah Probe

Demo Video

This effect is a natural continuation of the probe series... the fuzz factory probe, the volume control/manual tremolo probe, and now a wah. It's probably exactly what you think it is: a theremin-style antenna controlling a wah, getting brighter as your foot approaches. It has one extra feature, however. There's a Super Hard-On boost circuit in front of the wah, with a knob to set the exact level of boost for driving your wah sound. It can be turned up high enough to make the wah crack up a little for that "something's gonna blow" sound. It gets pretty darn loud!

Power supply. It blew out I guess, and then I blew another one out. So I need a new one that isn't going to fuck up after one use.


And I really want that other pedal now. Can it do psychedelic fuzz or is it more heavy than that? Because my Big Muff is already good for heaviness.

its a fairly versatile pedal, but all my experience with it has been that its strength is in its super thick single note leads. The chordal stuff thru it get really muddy. They also have a really sick gate on them, so theyre virtually noiseless when youre not playing...but once you tweak a knob a little, the pedal will start squealing feedback like a motherfucker. You can channel a lot of different settings for it. Their site lists settings that emulate tons of famous guitar sounds (frusciante has been using it too.)

They don't really sell them in too many stores because they make so few of em...theyre handmade for the most part.

they make another really dope pedal called the Seek Wah. It takes your signal and then breaks it into the frequencies of a wah pedal, but in 8 steps...so it ll play it in a pattern of hitting different frequencies in a wah's scoop and you can really fuck with the frequencies. For an example, check out the intro to Rival School's intro to "High Acetate" i think.

Mr.Nipples
09-11-2007, 06:46 PM
it can do both but i like it more for the psychedelic stuff. im going to get a prescription experience or a big muff for the lower smoother stuff to avoid bending over to switch on the fly. like thinner said, its a really really weird machine...can sound like a fuzz face to a nintendo...

bballarl
09-11-2007, 06:53 PM
Okay. Cause I'm still looking for an in-between distortion. I use the Big Muff Pi for the big crushing parts, and currently I use some Jim Dunlop pedal my drummer owns for more of a traditional, yet fuzzy distortion, but it isn't ideal. I'm looking for a pedal that will be good for anything from a Ramones or 1960s garage type sound to a Blue Cheer type thing. Maybe this will do it.

Okay. Cause I'm still looking for an in-between distortion. I use the Big Muff Pi for the big crushing parts, and currently I use some Jim Dunlop pedal my drummer owns for more of a traditional, yet fuzzy distortion, but it isn't ideal. I'm looking for a pedal that will be good for anything from a Ramones or 1960s garage type sound to a Blue Cheer type thing. Maybe this will do it.

Check out some Fulltone pedals.
Our Soul-Bender is based on the legendary Colorsound and Vox Series III ToneBenders made by Sola-Sound/England in the late '60's that was used by Beck and Page on much of their circa 1968-70 recordings. Equipped with 3 gain-matched germanium transistor for a FAT, searing lead tone, I've improved on the original by adding an internal trimmer allowing you to reshape the distortion from Rich legato sustain to bombastic all-out square fuzz...

The Soul-Bender cleans up when you back-off on the guitar's volume control. This pedal has tons of tonal character and even harmonics and of course, true bypass w/ LED is included with every one.

Fulltone Distortion Pro: Not a FUZZ! Designed to make a Tele, Strat, or other single coil-equipped guitar compete with a Les Paul, although many humbucker-users love it too. The DP-1 has great hi-gain sounds that are FAT and juicy. The "Saturation" knob allows you to soften or sharpen the attack of the notes and to firm the bottom-end. ...

You'd also be surprised at what you can do with a reissue Tube Screamer in conjunction with another distortion...using the Tube Screamer as a booster pedal....for leads or just that little extra hop in volume/gain.

I obviously need to play with some stuff. Thanks Nando.

yeah man. just mess around with stuff until you get it.
it also sometimes has to do with your pickups and how they react to your pedals/amp combination.
I play a Tele Deluxe thru a JCM900 but I had noiseless pickups in it. I replaced my bridge pickup with a stacked humbucker Hot Rail and now my guitar fucking screams, but I lost alot of the soft clean prettiness that is typical of Teles....so I switch to my neck position. I havent found a solid neck pickup that I'd want to drop in there, so I deal with the significant volume reduction in the switch from bridge(humbucker) to neck pickup(vintage noiseless single coil).

I have a russian Muff, but haven't used it in a while. I was however using the Boss OC2 for a bit when I didnt want really heavy distortion.

My next purchase is a good non-memory man delay pedal that can stand long delay lengths but isn't as sterile as your typical digital delays.
I ve been using this Ibanez DE7 delay for a while and its great, but it is starting to crap out on me after about 8 years and I refuse to send it to get fixed. I think I bought it for like $50. Its awesome though.

I have like 2 or 3 expensive pedals and then the rest are all shitty Boss pedals. I actually like their chorus and delay though. The flanger is mediocre, the tremelo is about mediocre, and the phase shifter is not that wonderful. But they get the job done.

My big thing is a dreamy, clear clean tone and then a really heavy distortion. So I run my Fender Twin (not Twin Reverb) through two cabs (a Peavy 4X10 and Avatar 4X12) and then I use my drummer's Roland Jazz Chorus with the chorus cranked up on it. That makes a nice tone. Then when I want to rock out I just hit the Big Muff. I'm pretty happy with the way things sound right now, I just need that in-between, more versatile distortion because the amps don't get it done and the Big Muff is for destruction.

I sorta like the Boss Tremolo. The flanger is just weird, but its one of the most basic flangers you can pick up. I bought the Electro Harmonix Flanger (Flanger Hoax) and that thing is a beast. You can hardly come up with sounds that are usable. There are tons of knobs and you really have to mess with it. Its a specialty pedal that really has no place on a pedal board, unless you just want to show off (and carry around an additional few pounds)
I never liked Boss Delay pedals, except for this old discontinued pedal. It was a pitchshifter/delay pedal. You could plug an expression pedal into it to create 'Whammy" type sounds, and it doubled as a delay pedal. The delay on that is cool because it's not 100% accurate on the repeats. It's a great delay pedal for Andy Summers/dubbed out type guitar stuff....short bursts of delay.

I like some of their distortion pedals. They have that Blues Driver pedal, which is their blue pedal, that is pretty neat.

Sounds like you just need an overdrive pedal that is going to raise your signal slightly and boost your level. There are pedals that, in conjunction with your big muff, wont get so noisy and harsh. Try out those Tube Screamer re-issues (the nicer ones... not the cheap soundtank ones...get the TS9 or TS808 ones. the heavy looking sickly green ones.) Those should give you a nice boost and still have enough balls to play on their own. Also check out the RATT pedals. When dialed in correctly, they can give you a fat distortion and they're easy as fuck to operate (2 knobs? 3 knobs?)

The abandoned monkey who has found love with a pigeon

They're an odd couple in every sense but a monkey and a pigeon have become inseparable at an animal sanctuary in China.

The 12-week-old macaque - who was abandoned by his mother - was close to death when it was rescued on Neilingding Island, in Goangdong Province.

After being taken to an animal hospital his health began to improve but he seemed spiritless - until he developed a friendship with a white pigeon.

The blossoming relationship helped to revive the macaque who has developed a new lease of life, say staff at the sanctuary.

Now the unlikely duo are never far from each other's side, but they aren't the only ones to strike up an unusual friendship.

Earlier this year a pig adopted a tiger cub and raised him along with her piglets because his mother couldn't feed him.

And in 2005 a baby dear named Mi-Lu befriended lurcher Geoffrey at the Knowsley Animal Park in Merseyside after she was rejected by her mother.

So that baggy pants article reminds me of a funny story.

The other day, Steve and I were driving down the main drag 'round these parts. Since it was a warm day a lot of the homeless were out pushing their carts for exercise or asking for donations to their various buy-a-guy-a-drink funds. So I was not entirely astonished to see that there was a homeless guy with a cart full o-junk waiting at the bus stop. What I was not expecting, however, was an eye-full of his ass. The seat of his pants was so worn through that you could clearly see both cheeks. At first, when I saw it from a distance, I thought it was just some sort of design, and so I kept staring at it trying to make out what it was. And then we drove by and it was ass crack.

I washed my eyes with bleach when we got home.

Massive difficulties. Beyond that, I have no idea. Frankly, I'm still a little fazed. "Moment of clarity" might be a little bit of an understatement--anyone else ever had the sensation that God just smacked you upside the fucking head with an epiphany? Like really smacked, whole body just started ringing, your vision went completely white for a couple seconds? And no, I'm not on any drugs at the moment.

Thats why I try to spend as little time at home as possible, I've seen it a million times, inside those walls nothing ever changes. I had my "moment" and it told me to get the fuck out.

Sometimes I like to blindside the OTHER side …. We had a staff meeting today and our guest speaker was the head attorney and three others from my work (there are 15 of them) … so she gets done with her talk, and asks if we have any questions …. As usual everyone stares at me so I just had to say something ….. So my question was: “In the last 20 years or so, has any case been brought to a jury trial stemming out of legal action involving an employee vs. the county government …. (Mind you, we have many many cases of employee’s suing the county for whatever reason) … answer “No not a single one ever went to trial” , I said my follow up question was, “Since there has not been even one which is very unusual, do you feel that our attorneys are that good, or do you just roll over at the slightest hint you might lose and settle out of court?” …. Ha, my director was just sitting there looking at me, I bet if she had a tazer, she would have used it on me lol … cr****

It didn't really have anything to do with being cooped up inside. Plus, it's worse out there. There's people out there. People and slow-moving drivers and LA people and even worse LA women and it costs money that I have none of.

Again, nothing. It's been nothing for a month now. I haven't had a dry spell like this since I was sixteen. Quite seriously, I felt the touch of God, or whatever you want to call the ethereal balance that I believe in. Every once in a while it'll just lay into me and I'll get a flood of realization. Like time stopped and I saw my life--or in this case specific things about my recent life--not even flash before my eyes but all just suddenly crystallize in my mind. All the emotion vanishes for a second and I'm seeing all of this objectively, and everything becomes truth and usually the truth is I've fucked up, am fucking up, and possibly am a fuck up. Not that I'm feeling sorry for myself or depressed--it's just reality. So now I gotta figure out what He/It/Goddude wants me to do about it.

Review/details:

mmm, cilantro. That is the dominant smell if not the dominant taste.

The beef isn't quite tender enough. Also I'mn't sure I entirely like what it did to the dish; there's an undesired heaviness. I needed smaller pieces and I needed to drain it better and cut out the fat better. And who knows, maybe I really do need to stew it to get it right.

I could've used more chiles. I used a couple in the corn and 3 or 4 with the beef while it was cooking (though some of that was lost during the draining) and then I added 2 more after I dumped in the beans. I used dried chiles de arbol, though just the seeds. I mean the shells cooked with the corn but then I discarded them.

I like the Queso Quesedilla.

I prob'ly should've used all the green onions. I didn't use any white (or yellow) onion. I also didn't use any garlic. These were firsts.

Also those tortillas are fiiiine.

TALKING HEADS: Rome, Italy, 1980
From the short-lived Adrian Belew (Frank Zappa, King Crimson) era – assisting on backing guitar and vocals – comes this rare Italian TV broadcast. Witness the Talking Heads from one of their most definitive tours – Remain in Light. This film was recently re-broadcast on Italian TV and is likely the best unofficial Talking Heads film anywhere. Professionally filmed.


This is the latenight movie all weekend at our local arthouse cinema. I'm going tomorrow night.

Also, I recieved a very friendly postcard from Amyzzz today.

Funnily enough, it was rescinding my misogyny temporarily that accounts for about 20 percent of the fucking up. Silly Randy, always right yet doesn't follow his own advice.

Oh, and God hates old people and retards. Seriously. Otherwise why the fuck would he make them miserable smelly drainers-of-life and retarded, respectively.

I went to a Tequila Bar last night and saw "The Worlds Most Bad Ass Mariachi Band." They were awesome it was a Mariachi band consisting of family members that looked like they were in a punk band. They even played some Sabbath. I think that one of the beer gardens should have a mariachi band this year. Goodtimes.

I need a camera.

I have to go to a job interview shortly and the content of my posts is making me worried that I might still be insane. I've had to erase several initial attempts when I gave them a quick once over before posting and realized I didn't have a fucking clue what any of it was supposed to do with anything.

Anybody know if you can check yourself into a mental hospital without, like, paying money and stuff?

if you have insurance, that'll cover it.

if you don't, then there are generally public funds available to pay for those patients who are involuntarily admitted to a psych hospital. so get one of your friends to have you committed.
