yeah i see what you mean, playing at a variety of gigs would probably make a difference. up here theres only 2 clubs and in my opinion i play at the better one but i dont think id be able to do that 4 nights a week still.
the 5 full days a week for music would be rather nice too. Have you got any release out jonny?

Cabinet grade Plywood, with real wood edge trimming or 80/20 Aluminum

I'm planing a couple custom keyboard stands out of 80/20 's stuff myself.


I do process controls for a living.

Yes, sometimes it can be intense. Most of the time people are expecting it. When I have to serve an eviction notice or a defendant that may be hostile, I bring along some hardware:

Except mine is a 9mm with Trijicon night sights.

<sigh> Its a sad state of affairs were guns are so widespread and easily available. In this country you'd be arrested on the spot for even the slight wiff of posessing a firearm.

Sorry, not preaching, but talking so casually about a piece of hardware that can take someones life and destroy a family around them just seems so very wrong.

Yeah, there's no question that America is a gun-crazy country. But hey, when in Rome...

to flat earth: respectfully btw,

i respect your opinion. But, it's a sad state of affairs such as the one that the citizens in your country cannot lawfully defend themselves from the criminals that CAN and DO take lives and destroy families by obtaining firearms illegally. While the sheep-people are led to the slaughter by they're so-called representatives. Don't get me wrong, I feel your pain...the laws here have ALMOST emasculated our public as well. I am not preaching either, but when you grow up with freedom and it is being taken away by inches and miles everyday around you it makes you very sad for the people around the world that have never even known it.

In our country the only thing that stands between the fascist/socialist proletarians and our first amendment(free speech) is the second amendment(the right to keep and bear arms). Not that THEY listen to us anyway if you have been watching the news.

Pray for the US, because our people(good people, not criminals) may be the last chance any of us have from out and out total orwellian control over everyones lives by the bilderberger's. Total global control over everything by the NWO. But hey, if you're down with the program(ming) lotsaluck.

Ok, way OT here.

JMHO, back to audio or whatev.

No doubt gun crime is a problem that every country has in varying degrees, more so in countries where firearms can be brought more easily over the counter, a problem of their own making possibly.

I am glad that we don't have the freedom to be able to buy guns where I live..
