    Okay, always understood the "stylin" part...


    What does it mean to be profilin?


    Or for that matter, what does it mean for one to be so bad they are, in fact, nationwide?

    great edition of the well, ginormous

    thanks

    Is it not the glory of the people of America that, whilst they have paid a decent regard to the opinions of former times and other nations, they have not suffered a blind veneration for antiquity, for custom, or for names, to overrule the suggestions of their own good sense, the knowledge of their own situation, and the lessons of their own experience?" - James Madison - Federalist #14

    OK, here are some examples of the gear-grinding culture shock between New York (Bronx/Westchester County) & Kentucky:

    My wife came to be with me in Yonkers (Getty Square, the west side down by the Hudson... Mary J. Blige/DMX territory), before the move to Paducah. She'd never tasted a real, coal-fired, brick-oven pizza. She hadn't even heard of calzones. "How do you say that... 'cal-zonn-ess'?"
    --------
    In NYC, there were several newspapers, TV and radio stations, and retail stores relating to different world cultures and languages. At any given time, I could go to restaurants run or owned by expats from Carribean, European or Asian nations, and get a taste of the true cuisine. Here -- .
    --------
    I've never seen so much NASCAR in my life! Hats, t-shirts, coffee mugs, sleepwear, bedsheets & pillowcases, underwear (men's and women's)... I know Earnhardt Sr. was appreciated by many, but his #3 is etched into the rear window glass of almost every pickup truck.
    --------
    Thou Shalt Not Diss Elvis. Ever. Even "large Elvis" is respected here.
    --------
    Some may remember the scene in the movie Ruthless People, where Bette Midler shouts, "I've been kidnapped by K-Mart!" Well, she should have said Wal-Mart. Almost everything I eat, drink and wear... Shoestring budget? Great prices.

    "Never mind the social impact. I'm naked, hungry and my car needs new tires!"
    --------
    Whatever time, day or night, I could pick up and go where I wanted, either by taxi, city bus, commuter train, or subway. Here, the buses stop running at 6 PM. The taxi service is owned by the bus company, and it stops picking up sometime after 1 AM. If you're not home from work, and you can't get a ride from a friend, you're SOL.

    The first is to be an icon of style, that your profile is the one to watch for trends and new ideas... the second is a play on the "Most Wanted List", that everyone all over the country is so fascinated, nay, transfixed by your mere presence, that they are all looking to see where you might turn up next.

    Much the same as the world is with you, kind sir.

    I'll need some serious woodshedding; never done any gigs with an acoustic. A guitarron is the closest I've come so far.

    I have a fretless '74 Precision 5. That was my main bass for years before I had it done over (filed frets, Wilkinson 5-string bridge and graphite nut by Giuliano Balestra, Giuliano's Custom Guitars, White Plains NY).
    What gauge bass strings do you prefer?
    I've tried a lot of different ones; flats, rounds and half-rounds, but I keep going back to D'addario XL. Mediums are the lightest I'll go. Consistent tone and feel from pack to pack. I've broken some G's and swapped out, and they all sound clean.
    Why is one side of a flying V duck formation longer than the other?
    Maybe they got picked off for "Chinese turkey".
    Ever get into those old Gibson Bases-Ripper, Grabber, EBO,Les Paul?
    I've played a friend's Ripper, and, um, like, check my public profile (click my screen name)... scope my avatar... Hi, I'm ginormous, nice ta meetcha.
    Do you mind those basses they make nowadays Like Flying V basses and weird shaped bases?
    Hey, whatever floats your boat... sound and feel are what I go by. How it feels in my hands, and how it makes me feel inside.

    Many thanks to all who have participated, and I've enjoyed it. Your next Well host is on as I'm typing this, and I'll see you around.
