    787 Makes Maiden Flight

    I read your articles and actually found them to point towards the Boeing Dreamliner as the better plane for the future..... thanks for posting. The pics of the factories was a ridiculous comparison, BTW! The Boeing Plant is every bit as spic and span as the Airbus plant. You might note that the wings were on the Boeing plane, whereas the Airbus pic was taken in a "pre-wing" assembly area. I prefer Boeing's plant...in Everett, Washington, USA.

    Really? Can you explain why you think that? I'm fascinated by your comment. Please enlighten me!

    Adam Lambert American Idol

    Kris was the wrong choice for the final. Gokey would have faired much better on the last two picks (from Simon Fuller and Kara's song). Adam proved to be far superior at song interpretation and vocal skill. Too bad that it's just a popularity vote.

    Adam Lambert American Idol

    Danny is not hip.... but he smoked everybody vocally tonight! Kris was his usual hip self, but the least competent vocalist. Adam is getting old fast! I find that when he sings in the middle of his range that it sounds great, but the lows and "very" highs sound like poop! Yeah he can hit high "z", but if there is no emotion or quality...who really cares? I hope that Gokey and Kris stay. Adam will have a fabulous career as a Broadway Showgirl!

    Adam Lambert American Idol

    I would have been OK with Kris or Danny. Danny, because he did so poorly last night and Kris because he is not as good of a singer as the rest. I know, girls......he has a nice smile!

    Adam Lambert American Idol

    Well... I watched it again and Adam was OK, but even Slash told him to do the lower pitched ad-lib runs and they would sound better. He sticks out his tongue in a weird way, makes a god-awful Michael Jackson type noise when he inhales, phrases the passages like a robotic fairy and that Elvis lip thing....what's up with that? Soulless high notes with no concern for taste. Allison was really good...I missed it the first time, because I was occupied while I was hearing it. She had the best performance of the night for me. She had some great soulful runs and hit every note. 17 years old and she's that good? WOW! Gokey sang THE WRONG SONG.....period. What the heck was he thinking? The guy has the best voice in the competition and is trying to be Steven Tyler? Can't even remember the other guy's name, edited to add KRIS. If it wasn't for the 12 year-old girls voting for him, he would be long gone, just my opinion. The kid has an OK voice, but not near as good as the other three. His intonation is bad, no support, awkward stage presence with the guitar (with the exception of the time that he sat on a stool with the acoustic), absolutely NO ORIGINALITY....how is he still there? OK...my vote to go....the teenybopper boy! Kris... sayonara!

    anyone intrested in the occult

    I'm not an expert and I do not use Ouiji boards, but this is what I've gathered about using them. It is a device that opens up the spirit world to the user. The Ouiji board has no majick power, but is a token of invitation. Malicious spirits can use this connection to possess the user. It's use is kind of like an invitation for spirits to "connect" with the user, who might usually be protected by ignorance or disbelief. The theory is that using the Ouiji board is like inviting the spirit to inhabit the users soul. Pretty scary stuff.

    Getting Les Paul sound on Strat

    I would disagree with that study. A Maple Strat sounds a lot different than a Swamp Ash Strat and the shape is the same. A Korean "plywood Strat" has a different sound as well. I would agree that the figured maple top on a Les Paul contributes greatly to it's sound. Have you ever played different acoustic guitars made from different woods? Take Martin acoustics; they are all shaped the same, but the woods used give them different tonal characteristics. Why do players pay more for certain woods? How about paint? I can hear the differences.

    Getting Les Paul sound on Strat

    Because I forget more than I remember these days, I'll have to check my facts, but I seem to recall that he had two switches under his pick guard. I don't remember their functions, but I thought that they were coil taps. I could be wrong.... Edited to add: According to a reliable source it is #2 that has the two switches under the pick guard and they were installed AFTER Led Zeppelin in the early 80's. One is a series/parallel and one is a phase switch.

    What Kind Of Guitar Do You Have?

    I'm finding them for $450 US all day long, right around $500 US with a case. They don't seem to be giving you a break on your euros.
