I was driving home from work and it was raining pretty bad. Visibility was effected but not horrible. Then all of a sudden this car drifts into my lane and is headed straight for me. We are both going about 35 mph so I am thinking how do I not die here. I decide to slam on the breaks and in a split second think "at least I probably won't die." Then, the car swerves at the last second nearly missing my car.

I think it's staying with me a bit to attempt to live a better life. I've been listening to a shit ton of Knocked Loose - A Tear In the Fabric of Life which is coincidental that the start of the album is a car crash that kills someone and the grief that follows. Knocked Loose comes to Blossom Music Center and I might go. It's kind of a weird venue for them but they are getting pretty big and outgrowing Unitarian Churches it seems. There is seating up front and then everyone else has picnics and drinks red wine on the lawn. Very, very weird for a punk show. Obviously, the vibe will be different versus an orchestral symphony. I don't think I'd mind just lying down on a blanket on the lawn bobbing my head.

I've been coming across a lot of Nietzsche via Byung-Chul Han. I'm tempted to re-read it all again from Human All Too Human but not sure if I want to commit to that. There is so much in the world to read...

I don't know. I am just happy I am alive and not super injured. I am happy I get a day off from being super performance zombie. But, the day off makes me a better super performance zombie. There is no real way of getting out of that cycle unless I quit all employment but that is not advisable. It's actually fine if there is enough cash lying around for some time but when do you end it and what type of employment can one find at that point. NEET life is not a great life.

That venue does not look close to where you live? I also can't imagine it would be like that. A KL without a mosh pit is impossible.

They have a couple tours in Canada but none in Montreal =(

That car encounter sounds like a nightmare. Glad you're ok buddy.

I'm going to buy a EVH 5150 III today most likely, same amp used by KL's guitarist!

I would travel and see family in Ohio and see the show. I've been to that venue many times but mostly for orchestral symphonies. I am unsure where the mosh pit would be.

re: amp

Nice!

I'm still using a cheap knock off Fender Stratocaster and amp. It's not ideal but it works. I've actually accumulated some money but unfortunately have some car expenses coming up. Otherwise I might start looking at a nicer Gibson Les Paul knock off or potentially an original. I don't even really have opinion on amps yet besides the tones they can produce. The biggest thing is it would be amazing to have a larger neck. I don't have huge hands but they are larger than average but the bigger problem being my fingers are not narrow.

That was divine intervention. G*d came down from heaven and moved the car out of your way. neet life is indeed fucking boring. I'm thinking about becoming a security guard. Not sure if I can though. They may have some kinda psych tests and I got a fined for battery couple years ago.

That's great Curb that you are thinking about being gainfully employed. I was a security guard whose biggest concern was Heinz Ketchup R&D and checking on the pipes. I didn't have to take any tests.

But, God Damn it! You gotta resize or delete that picture.

I picture Loco with an Ibanez. Although, not all the way with a 7 stringer and tuned weirdly.


RiKD    United States. Jul 03 2022 21:30. Posts 7656

Nah, 1 of the guitars is probably Ibanez 7 stringer down tuned

Not quite ready to invest in one but maybe at some point if I can't manage to scratch that heavy itch with my other heavy guitars (Schecter Hellraiser C-1 and ESP LTD EC-401). Yeah they play on two 7s from Ibanez. I'd definitely get an Ibanez as well, I played my brother's and the thin necks are awesome. Makes even more sense with a 7.

Didn't end up buying the EVH, I found a microphonics issue on it (specifically went there to test for that, since my previous amp power tubes had that issue). Luckily I found it. Ended up having a chat with the guy who might know a guy who could repair my Peavey 6505 mini-head so I may just opt for that instead to save a few bucks. That EVH sounded so nice aside from the dead tube though.

When playing a sub-$100 guitar on a sub-$50 10-watt amp there is no such thing as scratching any sort of heavy itch. Even messing around with my Boss OS-2 Over Drive / Distortion it is just distortion and/or overdrive and not all that heavy.


RiKD    United States. Jul 04 2022 02:01. Posts 7656

Why do you like the thin necks? Because it is good for solo'ing and power chords and the like?

I find scales and power chords to be great on my thin neck but if I am asked to play rhythm and chord progressions sometimes my fingers are dulling other strings. Part of this is surely my chord shapes could be better but part of this is that the strings are closer together on a thin neck.


Loco   Canada. Jul 04 2022 02:26. Posts 20900

The smaller your hands are, the more uncomfortable you'll feel playing a 7 string guitar that has a taller neck by default because you have to wrap your hand around it. So it helps if it's thinner to counterbalance this a bit. Most guitars have a curved neck that is quite beefy and can be uncomfortable to play with after an hour or so of playing lots of barre chords or power chords, including both of my guitars. I don't know who else other than Ibanez has thinner necks but it just feels like you don't need to use as much strength to apply pressure on the strings and you have a bit more leeway in how to comfortably place your hand while doing barre/power chords.

35 mph is about twice faster than the school-zone limits of 30 km/h in my area.

Hopefully this does push him to get one. I'm worried about him.

The thing is he thinks getting a guitar amp is something that will make up for his not having a car...but I don't think thats how it works...I'm more worried than ever.

The thing is loco has a giant ego i think everyone knows that.

He probably goes through alot of mental gymnastics to explain to women why he doesn't even have a car.

The thing is he can only afford like a 1996 Toyota corolla but his ego can't handle it and he won't be able to explain to women why he drives that.

So likely he will realize the best option for him is to use that few k to buy a used motorcycle instead and create a weird Antifa biker gang like sons of anarchy but with crotch rockets and Vespas lol and try to convince women he is cool.
