  1. I need to hear more about how you hate it.
  2. Xbox One X - Available November 7th 2017 - $499.99

    PDO? Hell and yes. Re-bought Fusion Frenzy from the MIcrosoft Store because apparently I now have an aversion to physical media. Ninja Gaiden Black, too. Orta will make 3 OG titles installed on my system and the one I have been longing for since day one and that was before "Enhanced for Xbox One X" was even a thing (fingers crossed). This news is yuge.

    Fortnite needs to go on sale already. Itching for some legendaries.
  4. The Retro Gaming bug

    User name checks out.
  5. Have you checked out OrbusVR? Man, what must it be like to be a kid today...
  6. The credits are in.

    It's an unfortunate commonality with many gifted creatives such as yourself. It has to be difficult to reconcile so many artistic motivations with the social response side of creation. I mean, just because you have a lot of yourself to offer doesn't mean you're equipped to deal with others. I imagine it's this imbalance that leads to so many great artists going bonkers. I bet it's a pressure many never fully develop the tools to deal with in a healthy way, and I'd bet further that if you're not lucky enough to become numb to the social aspect of putting yourself "out there" you're instead destined to become a tragedy in one way or another. It's no secret that you, Ed, have a beautiful soul and the means to express it in many different ways. I hope you find a way to enjoy sharing your gifts at least as much as we enjoy what you do share. Wait, are you just talking about general self-doubt as to self-perceived quality of your work product unrelated to what others think? In that case, what's that over there?! /fadebackintobushes

    Haha, totally.

    Love it. Relatedly, I was out in Los Angeles last week, went up to Thousand Oaks and dropped by the mothership. This is the only thing in front of the building that notifies you who the occupant is. When you walk in you're greeted by a dude who pops up from the nearest cubicle, obviously not expecting anybody to come in. I asked him if they had a gift shop, they didn't. I then asked if I could play with a prototype, I couldn't. But Pete Celi was walking around in the background so that was cool.

    I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. Still need many more sound panels on the walls, but the room is pretty much done.

    Saw a video of a guy playing this wicked version Careless Whisper on an acoustic guitar and was struck at how such a gifted person could spend so much time, blood, tears, and talent and come away with Careless Whisper on acoustic guitar. This is that. Humans are amazing things. EDIT: Found it. It's the best thing Rick Astley has done in 30 years.

    Congrats, Ed. Looking forward to hearing what you do with it! So I've decided what to put on top of the 1960 cab and it arrived today. Sweetwater made me a deal and pretty much strong-armed me into it. I'm the victim here. Marshall JTM 45

    Yeah, it's a Marshall Astoria Dual head and cab. When you can't decide which Astoria to get, you get the Dual and call it a day. The white pedal is an Xotic Wah, which absolutely rocks. I've always had a tried and true classic Dunlop Crybaby, but when this thing came along it fixed most of the issues I had with it - namely footprint and customizabilty of sound. The guitar cases are going into a storage room next door, but all of the guitars now live on the wall. I installed a Frigidaire dehumidifier and a Venta Airwasher humidifier to keep the room perfect, so up on the wall they go. I need to post an updated pic with the improved layout, V-Drums and guitar wall. The Fender collection isn't quite done - I'd like to pick up a Super Reverb (despite the DeVille 4x10 I currently have, which I love and with a volume potentiometer in the effects loop I can get wonderfully articulated bedroom volumes out of the beast), Deluxe Reverb, and a Tweed or two (Blues Deluxe? Custom Twin?). Next on the to-do list is a proper classic Marshall head for that 1960 cab (which used to do duty as an emulation cab). My list is down to a JTM45 (most likely) or some blow torch like a JCM 800 (with an attenuator). This is the absolute last thing I needed to see.
