Total Watts

  1. Man, the 77 is still here and I am back, yet again, starring at it. Ok, I definitely have to ask my wife to hide my credit card asap 😎
  2. I know, I know, this one may not be everyone's cup of tea, but I am still tempted to get one next year.
  3. Looks who is on the cover of BP magazine πŸ™‚
  4. Q: Baseball bat neck on a P? A: Roger Waters Signature model!
  5. maybe it is subjectively better for you (more power to you) or maybe it is even objectively better (assuming you could somehow objectively define and measure what you mean by "better") but it will never be subjectively better for me. Won't be able to convince the voice in my head.
  6. Somehow this reminded me of this Danish bloke who got money from a museum to create a piece of art with that money and then just he delivered an empty frame, saying that "he had no intention of complying with his contract. β€œThe work is that I have taken their money,” he told Danish radio. β€œIt’s not theft. It is breach of contract, and breach of contract is part of the work.” Genius. That's proper (post)punk art! https://www.theguardian.com/artanddesign/2021/sep/28/danish-artist-delivers-empty-frames-for-84k-fee-as-low-pay-protest
  7. I am sure an ACG will get you close to the Wal sound. As a massive Tool fan, I always wanted one badly. However, I cannot afford a new or even a used Wal and I recently got a G&L L2K that someone described as the poor man's Wal. It's a great bass but the problem is that ACG/G&L etc will get you close, maybe even very close, but, and that's the sad truth, they will never be a Wal and if you really, really want a Wal (and not just something that sounds like one), then a little voice in your head will always be there and tell you from time to time: yes, it sounds almost like a Wal but you know and I know and I know that you know that it isn't a Wal. You will try not to listen to this little annoying voice in your head but like all the unborn chicken voices in my head, you will never be able to completely ignore it, not until you have finally bought the Wal. Trust me, I have several of these voices in my head! Anytime I listen, voices in my head, everybody listen, does yours say what mine says?
  8. Congratulation but you should know the rules by now: no picture, no brass fireside companion set πŸ˜‰
  9. Well, I am a fan but I don't have deep pockets. Guess, in best Dragon's Den manner, this ultimately means "I am out".
  10. Man, I remember that one. Very surreal. Almost performance art territory. From the RS magazine: "I had no idea he was doing that," Lee later told Rolling Stone. "Let me go on the record to say he didn't tell us he was doing that. In fact, I know he had a whole other speech planned. Neil [Peart, drums] and I thought he had lost his marbles when he was talking. You can see the look on our faces behind him going, 'What the flip is he doing?' And of course, we couldn't see him act it all out. We just kept hearing, 'blah blah blah blah blah.'" He continued: "I don't know what his pure intent was, but I think it was more a knock on speeches, the whole process of the Hall Of Fame induction thing. Lee added: "He's a mental case. And he's genuinely one of the funniest people you would ever meet in your life. But I wanted to kill him at the three-minute mark. Neil and I were threatening to knock him on the head and drag him offstage."
  11. Don't think we should promote the use of drugs πŸ˜‰
  12. I don't think we are allowed to discuss drugs on this forum. Your comment will probably be removed by one of the moderators soon! πŸ˜‰
