My sincere hope is that we will all see that we have so much more in common than we have apart...

"Expensive carborundum unobtanium weapons grade plutonium pick made by European wizards. I use the dumb end of the pick for extra modern tone."

OK I splorted my coffee over that one.

Awesome, I splorted as well.

Does anyone know where I can get one of those European Wizard picks? How to they compare to Blue Chips or Wegens?

Brilliant. "You're high, but not lonesome."

The one thing all my favorite artists have is the ability to laugh at themselves. Thanks.

Ditto, in a good way, of course :cool:

Sadly, this applies in some way to every aspect of my life and to everyone I know. Genius!

I think there are still issues to be covered.

All the best,

Professor - What gets me is how both of them can be so right and so wrong at the same time. :)) Hard to tell them apart vocally, too, which feeds into this.

And I want one of those picks, too, though I'm afraid it will just tear through my strings. :disbelief: I would use the smart end, though. ;)

Man, after listening to both of those I feel tried and convicted. :)

What a hoot

OK, John, did you make these? I found a link to the site that allows anyone to make these videos. Ergo, someone here knows where they came from! :whistling:

John,

Thanks. My band was quoting this to each other at tonight's gig!

this thread is already hilarious... I hope someone is working on the next one... so much for getting my graduate studies done... :)

In an attempt to bring John's cinematic work and philosophical conundrum to new heights, I feel it necessary to direct you to this sound clip I found on Deke Dickerson's site, which is an incredible piece of work in itself.

This, a clip of "Muleskinner Blues" done by a Korean cover band sometime long ago, in a world far away from the one inhabited by us...

:disbelief:Is that the Korean equivalent of Lester "Roadhog" Moran and the Cadillac Cowboys?

John, That was great! Thank you for not mentioning capos or Gibson, or we'd never hear the end of it. :)
