What are your choices*?
A few of mine. Apologies in advance. I had been in an '80s mood when the thread idea came to me. Hopefully I'll branch out as the thread goes on (or maybe the '80s just had the most narrative music vids). :lol:

Looking at the date and the fact that this has been posted to Reddit, I'm sure this will be Germans. But I just saw this for the first time and had trouble breathing and keeping my face dry. :lol:

How does their single/sound stand up today?

| Music Board|| Bassists, Which Do You Prefer: P, J, P/J, Other, and SS or LS? - shutterspeed on 7/12/14 at 1:30 pm|
The choices seem daunting. I've always played a p-bass because I like those low-lows. I'm considering a j now, however, or a p/j at least.
Also intrigued by the short scales as opposed to the long scales I've played in the past. ...
| Music Board|| What's the Smallest Amp With Which a Bassist Could Get Away Gigging? - shutterspeed on 7/11/14 at 3:27 pm|
I'm looking to start playing again and would hate to buy a practice amp only to need to shortly upgrade again.
So what would be the most inexpensive middle ground solution between something just to practice with a band with but with the slight chance of gigging down the road?...
| Tech Board|| Best Cheapest Bluetooth Headphones to Use With an iPhone? - shutterspeed on 7/9/14 at 5:27 pm|
Thinking about getting my wife some just to improve her listening experience a bit. Since she couldn't care less about buying her own pair, I don't want to shell out a lot of money for something she may not care too much about. Just want to buy a pair a little better than the wired iPhone earbuds ...

| Music Board|| Trying to Remember the Name of a Band... Any Help? - shutterspeed on 6/20/14 at 8:42 pm|
Came out around the mid-90s. Alternative metal band. May have been lumped in with grunge. Name had "Fly" in it. Think it was the first part of the name. "Fly(something)." They may have been foreign (Swiss, maybe?). Seem to recall their biggest song being called "Gray" or "Grey."
And, no, n...

When I left the man, he was cradling his dog in his lap while another family's young pit bull, having to be actively restrained by the female owner, was snarling and lunging at the dog to kill it in the waiting room.
My basset tried to comfort the poor dog and owner momentarily, but we felt compe...

Couple months ago my iPhone 4 (phew! glad I didn't have to post this on the OT) started screwing up during calls--face dialing, switching to speakerphone, muting. Wife's started doing the same thing a few weeks before mine. Doing a Google search, read this happening to a lot of people who think i...

One-take comedy performance aired on Showtime in '89.
I remember watching in awe as he switched from one instrument/impression to another. Of course, I was easily impressed as a kid. :lol:

| Help Board|| Curious Qwerstion: Why Do Discussions About Death Videos Get the Quick Anchor? - shutterspeed on 5/1/14 at 10:48 pm|
None seem to last more than a few hours/a day without the anchor if without images or videos linked.
Are there types of discussions considered too disturbing even for this site? I remember the Chinese video of those dogs getting skinned alive hanging around a good while.
| O-T Lounge|| Washing Machine Won't Drain / Run on Spin Cycle (UPDATE) - shutterspeed on 4/20/14 at 7:50 pm|
Seems to work fine during all other cycles.
Unit is about 10-11 years old.
Just wanted to thank everyone who helped.
Went ahead and changed out both the lid switch and the drain pump since the washing machine was already going to be open. And SUCCESS!

I've sold a few things through Amazon and eBay that have gone pretty smoothly. I'm waiting for that one shithead out there, though, who tries to claim he never received a package. Do you typically buy insurance or send certified mail when shipping an order? Seems like it would kill any profit on ...
