    Well, the left fit is amazing - the right one I need to decide if I do a refit (which is free from both my audiologist and westone). I am going to my best to test them out on Sunday at the range.



    Any updates?

  2. Heh.

     Sucks about downsizing, because stuff is great, but I’m pretty happy with my Bonnie Pink PRS and Daphne Blue Jazz Bass. But I also want a crazy relic’d masterbuilt and/or Murphy shop something.


  3. Just buy it a seat :)

    Alternatively, check the dimensions of your case and check that against the airline's policy and the plane's above-head holding dimensions to see if it will technically fit. I've flown with a trombone that didn't fit up top before (Xavier's when we moved out,) but the FA was able to put it with some of their vertical storage up front and it was fine.

    Nice!!!  Get a Fender Rumble.  The practice 50 is on sale for Black Friday. 

    I'll keep it in Mind; Fender is doing 12 Days of Deals right now, so I'm keeping an eye out for that too. I was seeing something about this Boss Katana 110 that has a bunch of effects and whatnot that seems interesting. I have a Line 6 for the guitar that's a modeling amp, and it's definitely cool to play with.

    Have a link to “slimmer fingers”?

    I googled it but I forgot to cut on safe search so…

    I think I should probably get a bass now, no?

    We all knew this would be a "yes", didn't we?

    Squier Classic Vibe '60s Jazz Bass Daphne Blue - Pix of actual guitar sent from Sweetwater. Never found those smaller fingers, so didn't make much progress with the pink guitar yet, but my son got it a few months ago and was noodling around. Well... turns out Fender is doing a promo where you get a "free" Squier starter kit + a year of Fender Play (lessons/app.)




    Should be here in a few days, but going to hold off until Satanmas, as this may be "my gift" from the fam. We shall see.

    Probably need a bass amp (that cost more than this much-more-budget-friendly-than-a-PRS-guitar bass).

    This thing is going to hold SOOOO many clothes.

  6. Finally got to break out the smoker for the first time since I bought it a couple months ago.

    @cetoole found pork shoulder for 99 cents/lb, so I got an 8-and-change pounder and broke it in.

    I had a cayenne and garlic infused garlic honey that I've liked before spread over it and rubbed in, along with some brown sugar. Let it rest overnight uncovered in the fridge, ground some salt over it today while the smoker was going through its initial burn in/up process.

    Have a learning curve (smaller-than-13-hour-hopper, so I ran out once), but... it doesn't suck.

  7. Recently got to go see Arturo Sandoval at Dimitriou's Jazz Alley in Seattle.

    I posted a pic online and, well, a good bit of the band decided they'd post that picture as well, including the man himself!





    Then we got to have a performance of Autumn Leaves by Deeds/Deedles/Diane Schuur (if anyone knows/of her).



    First time at that jazz club, and won't be my last.

  8. Gorillaz 20th Anniversary Tour

    Also spotted: a @909 in the wild!


    Love this album so stoked it was represented 


    Damon seems to truly care and is passionate in his performance 


    Thought an Mmmm-Hale-Bopp mashup was coming, but no such luck


    Uber drivers wouldnt let him drive, so we tried the monorail. They wouldn’t let him drive either. Idk why.


    We were posted up in front of the sound booth. I think the sound guy noticed David has JH Audio custom earplugs so he got the set list!!! It’s now residing with me; love it!



    This is the instrument I should have played growing up instead of saxophone. Alas. Perhaps in my next life/simulation.


    Dig the venue

    And the photographer was literally right behind us. Hoping to find some of those images soon.

    Had a good time; this was a bucket list band for me to see live

    Got a picture of Peter with a few of his Class of 2026 friends.


    He’s in the middle bottom of the C.

    Heh, so if he's in the mood for some decent-ish cooking, my daughter and her boyfriend just moved to Ft. Collins last week. The BF is going to CSU (both left ERAU, which seems to be in fashion these days) and Zoe's going to a CC out there as she tries to figure things out (major change, life,etc.)

    Class of 25 for them, in theory, but who knows...
