| O-T Lounge|| Do you enjoy writing? - TigerPanzer on 3/2/15 at 11:09 am|
I do, so not surprisingly, it's how I earn a living. And when it comes to commercial writing, I enjoy everything from advertising to public relations to editorial writing. I even like writing annual reports, so long as I'm spared the financials.
I even more enjoy–far more–writing songs and poems,...
| Off-Topic Board|| How well-adjusted are you? - TigerPanzer on 2/20/15 at 10:14 am|
Me? Not so:
• I'm a right-brained person in a left-brained world.
• I'm a left-handed person in a right-handed world.
• I'm a Type B person in a Type A world.
• I'm an introvert in an extroverted world.
• I'm a Luddite in a technology-obsessed world.
• I'm a twisted frick to boot.
How about ...

Along with Jim Gurely, Sam created the distinctive dual-guitar sounds of Big Brother. "I Need a Man" …"Summertime" … "Ball and Chain" … "Sweet Mary": if the searing guitars on these and other BB songs make your hair stand on edge … have a tall, cold one today in Sam's memory.

I deposited a large check this morning and suddenly there's a personal banker, his boss and someone else at my side to offer their "services." This before I even left the teller counter.
Is this s.o.p. at the average bank?...

Holy shit! I just watched Lt. Hanley wipe out an entire kraut convoy–a dozen trucks, maybe 1,500 soldiers–by detonating explosives that caused a mountain slide of huge boulders to fall on the German column. It starts at about 44:26 on this link:
| Music Board|| For us lefty guitarists - TigerPanzer on 1/23/15 at 8:35 am|
I see there's a number of us from the "guitar porn" thread. I think we all agree that playing lefty is extremely cool, being part of a weird minority of creatives who've stubbornly clung to our natural inclinations despite the significant advantages of playing right handed (beginning with the simple...

For you instrumentalists: was there one song in particular you were dying to learn and play when you first picked up your instrument? For, me it was "Hey Joe"--one of the coolest, most badass songs in my opinion. No one will ever mistake me for Hendrix when I play it, but I love strumming and singin...

I read these threads about giving advice on how to handle women. Seems to me there's a better way: watch movies. Like in the first 15 minutes of "The Big Sleep," Humphrey Bogart gives textbook lessons on how to handle:
• The spoiled brat
• The Princess
• (MOST IMPORTANT)--The intriguing woman hun...

2. [i]The 120 Days of Sodom[/i], Marquis DeSade
I couldn't finish the Gobbels Diaries. I felt like I needed a shower every time I opened the book. The DeSade novel, while almost unbearably sickening, did provide useful insights into certain forms of p...

Jerry's is a lefty-only guitar shop located in Sarasota. I've purchased there with satisfaction. Acoustics and electrics for sale; no beginner's guitars. Price range from about $1,000 to $5–$6K. Jerry, the guy who owns the place, is a good guy to talk to; I thought I'd pass this info along to other...

I bought a set of Hohner Blues Rocker harmonicas maybe six months ago. I've had no problem with them, but recently, I'm having trouble with the A harmonica: some notes are coming out doubled--the sound is similar to a trilling flute, that's the best way I can describe it.
I checked the note holes...
