    Bombdirt!!   How you been man?

    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?

    Any of you guys play harp or have a band member that does? Do you/they use any FX? If so what boxes are working for them?

    From what I understand, these guys are the gold standard, but I can't justify the cost:


    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:



    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?

    Create and sell merch. I'm serious. There are, like, a dozen websites out there that let you create and sell customized items. You could do JetNation hats, shirts, tote bags, mugs, mouse pads (I need a new mouse pad. I would seriously buy a JetNation mouse pad.) You got key chains, phone cases... Hell, create a jet plane plush toy and call him "Jetty, the JetNation mascot".

    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.

    Notice how we haven't had ads up on the site much since the summer? We tried a few out and had redirects. So the site has been pretty much ad free.

    That sound you hear? That's the sound of $600 coming out of my checking account each month to pay the bills lol.

    I am serious about the ads, working on some things, trying to get it fixed. Testing something new out today. but the ad experience has been painful all around. Google ads won't show. We aren't banned, they won't show. Google won't tell us why, they don't answer. I have spent so much time trying to fix it. Because, to your point, with this traffic life should be good right now ad $ wise.

    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.

    RV trip, local place in North NJ about two hours away for me. After this Jets loss I can't think of a better way to forget about things. Trees. Camp fire. No Todd Bowles.

    I don't think he is going, but he never RSVPs. Whatever.

    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. 

  6. 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.

    Up here in Maine, a buddy of mine has trail cam pics of what looks like a baby bigfoot.

    I saw the pics myself, and I dont know what the F else it could be. We dont have anything up here that could be mistaken for that, everything up here has 4 legs, even most women.

    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.

    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.

  9. 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. 

  10. 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.

  11. 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).

    No. Battlefield Earth is a classic "so bad it's good", but 95 Dredd was "so bad it's almost preferable to gouge one's eyeballs out with a rusty spork, and then wash out the mess with caustic soda bad". Basically we're talking any movie involving Madonna-bad.

    This paragraph made me LOL.

    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.

    Whaaaaat? The 2012 Dredd film urinated all over the utter, UTTER abortion that was Stallone's abomination, from so on high, the piss had frozen by the time it rained down on it.

    Anyone who preferred the 1995 thing probably never read a page of 2000AD or the Megazine in their life.  Stallone should have been f**king shot for that thing.

    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.

    Ovation’s are the worst sounding accoustics, for accoustics 

    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.) :-D

    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. :-P
