    I’ve heard the ‘really good ones’ AND I’m hopelessly closed-minded!

    It’s the perfect combination of personal experience and snobbery.

    Also, I like to kid around. ;)

    “Hey, this new software version 99.43681 for my AxeFX MCLXVI sounds exactly like a tube amp!”

    “You said that when you had the Axe FX 1. How come they keep revising it if it was perfect to begin with?”

    The same person who looks at a cow, pig, shrimp, lobster, fish or chicken and thinks, “yum?”

    I'm pretty sure we have an ordinance against that here...and if we don't, we should. I'm going to call Jean Stothert immediately...

    I get that he's not for everyone, but I think Neil's a great example of showing you don't need 5 gratuitous key changes, or 30 bars of sweep arpeggios/2 handed tapping or a 3 octave vocal range to have fun making and playing music. That D solo in Cinnamon Girl is a great example of less saying more, and a reminder that sometimes more says nothing at all.

    Also kidding around. :p

    And you're right, the upgrade hype cycle is totally a thing. "It's the best evar!!!" until the next one comes around. The folks who are honest about it don't think it's perfect, but that it's continually improving.

    S) Why being caught up in trivial matters is comparable to the results of hacking up a lung while enjoying some wine and cheese appetizers?

    Why is it called hamburger when its not made with ham.

    Why is it called eggplant

    Why has this country accepted mediocrity as the norm.

    ........why people post huge long rambling thoughts that take up more than four inches of forum space without the courtesy of a space or paragraph break.

    Edit, edit edit and your posts will be more concise and likely to be read

    Why is 2¢ not worth as much in foreign markets? (In other words, what can you get for 2¢ nowadays?)

    Why do people who wear labs coats seem to be always looking to solve first-world problems?

    Why can't my roomba find its own date?

    Why do girls who wear trendy sports clothes automatically think you're a nerd if you wear a business suit?

    Why doesn't jock itch occur in women?

    Why does the news format always seem to encourage learning, but no one really learns anything except how to cut out paper dolls?

    Nothing in Canada. We gave them up some time ago. A nickel is our smallest value currency and even an empty beer can is worth more than that.

    Why do women seem to look better after a beer?

    Why can't you tell people to go home if they're just looking to get a rise and you are just there for groceries?

    (Was wearing my business suit to meeting today, and mentioned to the grocery clerk I had vacuumed out my car because it needed it. Girl in workout clothes next checkout lane over says something about "He's gay." Really? Good luck finding work, miss. Oldest trick in the book.)

    That looks like the cover of Jefferson Airplane's "Crown Of Creation"

    He’s a GREAT song writer. I just wish he’d leave the recording to others.

    That's why we let the French try it out first.

    Assuming you may have offered "love" as your contribution as (O)? maybe? The definition of love is Hope, Faith, and Charity. :)

    How can a guitar play like butter? And "butta" makes it even less likely I'm going to touch it ...

    Yes, and Morton Lemon Meringue frozen pies used to have no eggs, butter, or lemons.
