    wow.

    Back to mere mortal questions:

    You're in the audience at the best music show you've ever seen, with some of your favorite artists on stage. All of a sudden, the spotlight's on you, and they're all waving you up to join them. "Let's all give him a big hand!"


    On stage, there's a truckload of A-list gear, tuned and ready.
    Which guitar are you playing, through what rig?

    ok heres another story I posted in another thread back in August

    just in case you havent read it

    when I was 11 years old
    I flew round my back yard
    as I remember it

    heres what happened
    as I remember it

    my brother and I were watching a Saturday afternoon horror movie
    in one scene they had one of those Circle/Star things with symbols inside
    we decided to copy it, when it next showed he copied in a CW direction as i did CCW, we each missed one, but the one was the same one
    took our drawing into the back yard where Grandma burned leaves, nice sandy spot with no grass growing
    drew our circle, I stood in the center and did the chant.
    the wind started blowing, a deep sound like a howling wind asked " why hast thou summoned me? " kinda hard to describe, I was 11
    so I said I wanted to fly and up I went fairly quickly, childish pleasure consumed me and my fear of heights
    " About 3 foot will be fine "
    back down I went and then I hovered over the neighbors field with my brother running along side asking if I could feel anything under my feet or holding me under my arms - feet were dangling and could feel no hands or anything upon me, just suspended in mid air.

    after a few mins my brother started the " its my turn thing " so I returned to the circle but it wouldn't let me down till it got "payment"
    it didn't want my soul it asked for and I quote
    " Three pence and a pint of ale "
    serious I was as puzzled too
    We had seen enough pirate movies to know what English pence and ale were
    so my brother ran inside grabbed the mason jar full of change ( Grandma's piggy bank ) you old-timers will recognize this tradition
    grabbed a kitchen chair dragged it to the bedroom closet and got the other mason jar Grandpa had stashed and went running thru the house to the back door.
    Grandma, who had been watching the spectacle, followed only to find me dangling in the back yard by unseen hands. She started "Rebuking in the name of Jesus" while my brother threw a handful of change and the open jar of shine into the woods behind me.

    It set me down, my brother didn't get his turn and my brother and I got a whipping for scaring Grandma. when Grandpa got home he blamed it on the Ouija board my aunts had been playing with and had it burned in the back yard in the same spot where we drew the circle. my brother and I weren't allowed to participate in the burning

    this is what I remember
    for the longest time my brother wouldn't admit to being involved, we now discuss it sometimes

    the mind is a tricky thing
    real or not it is what I remember

    there should be a support group


    hmm most cans come with the straws
    go into the auto parts store there should be some taped to the sides of some in there, they shouldn't mind, but try not to get caught


    Aw man the LP's are just so heavy
    I like to bounce when I play
    and I love the whammy
    maybe a Floyded one like this

    or the Bigsby one

    For all of those who have ever held a bottle up to their eye like a telescope
    and said " Lets Scope out them Chicks over there "


    This Old Mirror

    I've been watching
    .. Her thru the bottom
    Of this empty
    .. Beer bottle
    and it seems like
    .. Its gonna make me
    cry

    She said that maybe
    ..Maybe tomorrow
    But that somehow
    .. sounds like
    goodbye

    I'm on the wrong side
    .. of the mirror
    and she never
    .. gets nearer
    than a glance
    .. before she walks on
    by

    The Glass was
    .. Never clearer
    In this wavy
    .. Old mirror
    But I'm still here
    .. on the other
    side

    Another empty
    .. Beer bottle
    Keeps me wishing
    .. For tomorrow
    But Ill keep
    .. My Wishing
    inside

    One day I'll
    .. Get near her
    and break this
    .. Damn mirror
    But I guess
    .. it won't be
    tonite

    all works of fiction and supposed fiction in this thread are from a single mind
    mine

    Boston ( the first one with More Than a Feeling )
    Journey ( 18 right- that one with Dont Stop Believin )
    Loverboy

    VH Fair Warning

    just the standard early eighties Pre-Hair bands

    Liked New wave music too
    that was where the Punk rockers finally learned how to play

    so I was thinking

    "Hey Ehd,
    whats your favorite movie"
    Well tiny voice in my own head, that would have to be
    "V For Vendetta"
    because in High School in the late 70's my Nickname was "EV" pronounced Ebb
    when the comic came out in '82 I was already entrenched in the local culture
    never-mind that Guy Fawkes Day ( Kam, you know this one ) is my birthday

    look over some of the stuff here on the Gunpowder Treason

    "Were you ever in a band" my own little voice asks.
    first band named Ev-n-Ace
    me and the Guitar players nicknames
    no one else in the band liked it, I think we told them it was something else
    played drunken keyboards back then

    the members of the band, I have long since lost touch with
    except the guitar player who still hangs out from time to time
    he went on to play professionally for 20+ years
    I decided to make a living
    most musicians cannot make a decent living


    "Married, Divorced, Kids" the tiny voice with a hint of disdain
    ummm
    yeas all three,
    well, two of the first two and one of the last one
    wouldn't change a thing, just wish they were happier
    so may unhappy people around

    Catholics trying to blow up Brits and protestants? Why, I've never heard of such a thing in my life.

    Guy Fawkes day is fascinating, really. It's such a grim and macabre celebration. It's also interesting that he's been dressed as a hero by most folk tales of him...when really he was intending to install a much stricter and much less pleasant regime. Anyone who thinks that media spin is a recent invention needs to learn a few things.

    So, do you build a bonfire on your birthday? Burnt any effigies recently?
    I remember calloused hands and paint-stained jeans, and I remember safe-as-houses self-belief.

    Long since gave up the bonfires
    but Yes built several on occassion
    no longer stay in trailer parks
    these uppity neighbors would have none of it

    oddly enough during the last bonfire
    I had a guest at the house, who claimed to be a distant relative of a friend of mine
    I, well, introduced him to the man he had stolen his identity from
    it was a very eventful evening
