  1. Pretty terrible after about mid-March since my job relies on sports being a thing, but better over the last month or so. ljr reached out a couple weeks back so I figured I'd check in on the crew again; I missed you guys. What's new with you and the JN crew these days?
  2. Man, I haven't posted on here in forever. How's it going, fellow disgruntled Jets fans?
  3. Somehow, this makes me want to play the game even more:
  4. I used to be in a band with a guy who played harp. He was also our guitarist/singer (and very good at both) so he only filled in with it on certain songs. Which was nice because it helped cover up my sh*tty bass playing. Here's an example of one song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LsaVmynnQ20 In any case, he just ran the harp through his vocal mic, and it sounded fine. But I could imagine filling out the sound through a separate rig if you're a regular player. That makes me wonder: what is the advantage to a "specialized" harp pedal? Couldn't you get pretty much every tone possible out of a guitar pedal?
  5. I actually like the idea of a JetNation mascot. Maybe like a little anthropomorphic cartoony character that appeals to the kids--and the immature adults like myself.
  6. No way. I didn't know about all that Google stuff. That sucks. If you want, I can start up a posse with some of the other people from the site, then we can go down to Google headquarters and rough up some nerds until we get answers.
  7. So what kind of yacht are you going to buy with all the ad revenue?
  8. Prove it. I wanna see a receipt and security camera documentation. Those amps are the sh*t. If you really did buy one, I want to come dry-hump it.
  9. Hey hey hey this is most certainly NOT the place for good fun humor. We'll have none of that here! Being a tight-assed crazy person seems to be a requirement, though.
  10. Crap, wait. I see it now. Does that thing have frog legs? Or am I six beers too far gone?* You could get a twelve-week History Channel special out of that one shot. *"Probably" and "Probably" are the correct answers to these questions.
  11. Can I be in charge while you're gone? I want to impress chicks with that sweet, sweet Admin tag. I promise not to get drunk on power or anything.
  12. That sounds like a really nice idea. I personally am going to snort enough chloroform to knock myself out until Monday morning. I can't handle any more snide texts and comments from my asshoIe friends.
  13. I don't see a reason to change it; you've lived there for a very long time and will always have ties to the area. IMO RaleighJetsFan would be a little too close to Rutgers' name. People might confuse the two of you. (Which actually might be fun now that I think about it, but I digress.) A bunch of my in-laws live in NC and they love it. (They're right on the coast by where the worst of the hurricane hit; they all made it through okay thank God.) From what I've seen NC seems like a good place for live music, so you should have a blast in Raleigh.
  14. Is there any chance you could get the pics and post them in here? I need something to divert my attention from the fact that we might lose to the Browns on Thursday.
  15. Don't tease me like that. It's like saying your friend has pictures of what looks like Jennifer Garner making out with Betty Ford. Is it believable? No. Is it possible? Yes. Do I want to see pictures of it, even if they're fake? You bet your ass I do.
  16. Is this Pez dispenser real? It's awesome; I want one.
  17. For a year or two I've been kicking around the idea of going to a pescatarian diet, ever since @slats and a couple of other people were talking about it in another thread a while back. It sounds like something I could do if I put a little effort into it. Veganism seems like quite a stretch to me personally, but hey, if it works for you and you feel good on it more power to you. I've had a few very tasty vegan dishes in my day, so it's not hard to imagine making a lifestyle out of it.
  18. Todd Bowles will be wearing one of the Jets' new uniforms on Kimmel this evening. Here's a sneak peek: In all seriousness, that actually sounds like a great show to see if you're lucky enough to get in. I'm not super familiar with McCartney's more recent solo stuff but Memory Almost Full comes to mind as being a good album.
  19. You guys have got me thinking that I need to go back and watch Dredd again. I know I've caught it on TV before, but for the life of me I can't remember what I thought of it. I've never read the books or anything so I'm not familiar with the canon, but I do like Urban as an actor (he was the only casting choice from the Trek reboots that I was genuinely happy with).
  20. I'm with you for about five miles or so, but only if I can bring a few Sherpas to carry all my oxygen tanks.
  21. Oh hell yeah the 1995 Dredd movie with Stallone sucked complete ass. I actually watched it again a few months ago and it's still pretty cringeworthy. Almost to the point where it's so bad it's good, kind of like Battlefield Earth. I didn't mean the 2012 Dredd movie was a worse film (it would be pretty hard to be worse than the '95 version), but that it was a recent remake which became a financial failure. Come to think of it, the 2012 film probably tanked commercially simply because the '95 film was so bad. People still had that negative opinion of the first movie and stayed away from the second.
  22. I've played a few Ovations over the years and they seem to be hit and miss depending on the situation. An acoustic/electric running through a decent sound system in a mid-sized venue does pretty well from my experience. (But don't pay any attention to that statement @The Crimson King; you should remain frustrated with yours and give it to me.) The thing that I have trouble with on Ovations (and I'm sure there are some other brands which are like this as well) is with the slippery clamshell back. If you're not careful those suckers will slide right down your thigh when you're sitting down playing and make you look like a complete @sshole. My musical abilities make me look like enough of an @sshole; I don't need any additional assistance in that particular area.
