An amusing video...
« on: October 14, 2010, 05:15:30 pm »

While the video singles out Guitar Center its only because they're the biggest... I remember the same shit from the Sam Ash chain in NY in the 70's... this crap is nothing new, only we have the ability to make videos today [and more importantly, distribute that video for free].

We are selling emotions, there are no emotions in a grid


"Recording engineers are an arrogant bunch.  
If you've spent most of your life with a few thousand dollars worth of musicians in the studio, making a decision every second and a half... and you and  they are going to have to live with it for the rest of your lives, you'll get pretty arrogant too.  It takes a certain amount of balls to do that... something around three"

Worst fears:
1. Being buried alive.
2. Going to Guitar Center.

As cliche as it is, there are always at least 3 kids shredding and one of them working on Stairway.  All at the same time, on 100 watt stacks.  It's a sound that should just be overdubbed onto truly scary horror pictures, surprised they haven't discovered that one yet.  And then I inevitably have to ask the kids at the counter, 'How can you take this?'.  

Proudly, it's been at least 3 years now but Bestbuy is trying to install their own little guitar centeresque sections.  

Is there a special school somewhere in the mountains that deprograms these poor kids?
