The Outpost Cafe / A sad situation
« on: May 28, 2016, 11:43:16 AM »
P-47 crashes into the Hudson River killing the pilot. The plane appears to have survived.

Apparently the kids who work at MSN think jet and plane are synonyms.

Tool or toy?

And not documented on Gibson's web site, but it looks like all the 2014 models at Sweetwater have serial numbers starting 14000.

The Outpost Cafe / The truth is stranger than fiction
« on: November 23, 2013, 08:31:12 PM »
So a Hispanic man who doesn't speak good English buys a scratch-off lottery ticket and wins 1 million dollars, but the clerk pays him $1000 cash. He gets suspicious and comes back later and is offered $10,000 and the clerk's father tells him that is what he won. He went to the police anyway. The strange part is that the clerk's name is Karin Jaghab, his father is Nabil Jaghab, and the victim's law firm is Jaghab, Jaghab, and Jaghab in Mineola NY.

The Outpost Cafe / There killing our language
« on: October 14, 2013, 08:36:28 AM »
Every day I read something that shows me that the internet media either doesn't know the language or doesn't care to state things correctly but this takes the cake:

(The misuse of There in the topic title is intentional)

I'm guessing the Completest Kollektor will have to have one.

The Bass Zone / She used to be mine
« on: December 15, 2012, 07:44:43 AM »
Sold on ebay a couple of months ago to make room for the new Gibson non-reverse the new owner seems to have tired of it already. I really liked this bass, but would have liked it better with standard volume and tone controls. (I do have an LB-20 that looks similar but blue). The neck on this particular bass is awesome though being a 16th of an inch thinner than the standard Carvin neck.

No regrets, no desire to buy back.

The Carvins together:

Gibson Basses / Bridge and pickup covers
« on: August 06, 2012, 09:50:49 AM »
Bridge and pickup covers have a certian aesthetic appeal that just doesn't work when the covers are mounted backwards or in the wrong place. Both on ebay at this moment.

The Outpost Cafe / Powerful and Shiney
« on: July 31, 2012, 05:50:22 PM »
Last weekend we took my grandson to the Illinois Railway Museum. It just happened to be their Diesel Days event where they run the deisel locomotives. One of them is the only surviving EMD E5 which is pulling the Nebraska Zephyr. This set was donated to the museum in 1968. I remember these going through town so fast you couldn't read their names. We did get to ride.

The Outpost Cafe / One phrase that really burns my sss
« on: June 22, 2010, 01:46:18 PM »
Seen a lot in the news lately:

"according to officials who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly"

So now that they have demonstrated that they lack integrity, why print what they say? How can you believe what they say?
