    Tiger Woods in car accident

    Do I think it was a domestic dispute and there is much more to the story?.......yes Do I care about it? Not really, apart from seeing the mighty take a fall there is nothing of interest

    Your Favorite Page Guitar Solo

    If I had to pick just one it'd have to be no quarter from TSRTS, although the one in stairway from the movie is great too. Most of his solos are brilliant(when he was on his game,but I've also heard some bootlegs that I really wish I hadn't listened to)

    Cinematic Blunders: The Song Remains The Same

    Re:teeth You have to remember that those guys grew up in post war England, alot of things we take for granted now just were not available. The US exported boatloads of jam(lol and spam) to England after the war, long shelf life, high in calories and full of sugar(exactly what a population rebuilding a country needs) I've always loved the TSRTS, it was a ritual at the midnight movies when I was a teenager

    Someone explain to me (guitar related)...

    One thing you may want to try is find the notes in those "safe blues boxes" ascending on single strings(try to think of the scales in a linear fashion as well as horizontal), if nothing else it might get you out of the rut that playing nothing but pos.1 minor pentatonics will put you in. Of course I really advocate throwing all the scale patterns away and learn the circle of fifths, scale construction and where the notes are, if you know which notes to play and where they are you can play any scale anywhere on the neck, whereas if I ask one of my students(former students I should say, got too busy to teach a while back and haven't had the desire to do any of it lately either) who thinks he knows an e minor scale by learning a pattern to add a sharp and play in E dorian instead, he'll look at me and go "huh?", when it only involves replacing the "C" notes with "C#". It can be tedious to learn (I spent months saying out loud the notes I would play while practicing, and trust me, my students hated me for it ). THAT is how you get that fluidity up and down the neck you are looking for(of course you can do it by stringing patterns in different positions together, but then you are limited to only playing the patterns you know). As far as learning/improving your technique goes..you can't do better than learning from this guy: Pebber Brown's youtube channel

    Tiny Terror Combo

    no experience with that particular model, but based on my experience with other amps they make it's probably a beast

    Fire Safety Cigarettes

    oh that's clever, I suggest that the exhaust from your motorcycle is more harmful to people and the environment than the smoke from the 9 or 10 cigarettes I smoke a day...but I really don't care(look at what one volcanic eruption belches into the atmosphere..or drive by a refinery some time) pretty much everything contributes to pollution, and isn't good for your health...so fucking what?

    Random Thoughts v.3

    That holds true for opinions in general, best to take EVERYTHING posted on a forum with a grain of salt. That's why I have such a problem with people who use post counts to feel important, or judge the merits of what others have to say, or even those who try to be the voice of reason in the midst of chaos(hard to do without getting caught up in it)

    Jimmy Page to Perform In Brazil

    well that makes absolutely no sense whatsoever, might be amusing to a 6 year old is about all I can say about it. All I know for certain is that she had info on a Page appearance well in advance of you, I think everyone can agree on that. trying to insinuate that that exchange was anything more than yet another attempt to flirt with that girl is really, really pathetic
