Anyone get the new My Bloody Valentine record yet? I need to. Priming myself with Loveless today.
So my bass amp is down. It's a 1991 Trace Elliot 1210v that I bought used from bass Emporium (RIP) about 6 years ago. It was a custom rig for a local bassist who endorsed them back in the 90s. He played with Eric Johnson among others. ANYWAY, because of its custom nature they're having problems digging up the original…
So proud of myself. After spending several weekends fruitlessly trying to get the gauges in my GTV6 to come back to life, I fixed them in about 15 minutes Sunday afternoon.
If you're a fan of guitar rock and have never heard and studied Television's Marquee Moon (looking at you, millennial kiddies), then you're not a Jedi yet.

Bass players... anyone every set up a 4-string as BEAD using a set of strings for a fiver? We're working on some new material that's tuned way down, but I don't have a 5-string and my Fender sounds like turds when I drop the E to B, etc. I have a "spare" '81 Gibson Ripper that I think would sound pretty gnarly set up…
So I was playing GT5 last night, for the first time in weeks. Too busy with Batman...
The more I think about it, the more I'm more and more leaning toward selling the wife's Camry in a couple of years and going ahead with getting her something that'll work for as long as we can foresee, even if we have to finance some of it. That means an Outback or even a *gasp* minivan. Then in 7-10 years replace my…
One of the worst hit and run stories I've seen. Surveillance video in the story. Can we help?
Sooo... 2 medium earthquakes (5.0 and 4.2) in northeast Texas in a week. An area where fracking is extremely prevalent. This follows a year's worth of small quakes in Arkansas, Oklahoma and Louisiana. Hmmm.
Fuck this day. I'm going home.
Saw a Tesla Roadster and a Model S within a few minutes of one another. Orange Roadster parked in front of Sweetish Hill Bakery (posh 6th Street deli and bakery), white Model S at Container Store up at 360 and 183, of all places.
Fan of the crushingly loud British dreampop sounds? My Bloody Valentine, Ride, Lush, etc? Just miss music with wicked guitar riffs and memorable melodies?
