    Top 5 beers in the summer?

    Great question! Always love to chat about beer. I'm not a wine person by any stretch of the imagination. In fact, I think I've become sick from drinking beer more than I've had actual glasses of wine.

    In any event,

    #1, Guinness - simply the best beer in the world
    #2, Ten Penny Ale - local brew here in Central Connecticut; similar to a dark Sam Adams
    #3, Newcastle - tastes similar to Ten Penny
    #4, Corona or Corona Derivatives - not great beer, but so nice during a hot day
    #5, Blue Moon/Shocktop - wheat beers are nice in the summer

    Top 5 beers in the winter?

    #1, Guinness - simply the best beer in the world
    #2, Yuengling Black and Tan - nice brew I picked up a taste for during my days in Penn
    #3, Sam Adams Winter
    #4, Ten Penny Ale
    #5, Grolsch

    Is your new Les paul sitting in your lap as you reply to these inquiries?
    Not on my lap, but I did bring it into the office today and it is sitting on the floor (in it's case) as I type! I have a few friends here in the office who are also guitar players, so I've been putting on a demo every 45 minutes or so... good times!!

    Wherever there's crime they're sure to be found.
    Yeah, they're right in the middle runnin' the show,
    How else would they learn the things they know?

    They're usually the least ones you'd ever suspect,
    'Cause they've been to the joint & shoot dope in their neck.
    They probably supply half the town with drugs,
    As they record every deal with their wireless bugs.

    They're shadier than anyone that you'll ever meet,
    And more scandalist than the best crook on the street.
    Yeah, rats and snitches are a dime a dozen,
    Who knows, one could even be your own cousin.
    Rats and snitches are cheese eatin' *****es,
    They should have their eyes taped shut
    and their mouths in *titches.
    They should all be completely *iped out of existence,

    But now a days they've gained a social accptance.
    It's so hard to believe how things are today,
    And it is so much indeed to my own dismay;
    For what once was considered a disgusting disgrace,
    Has become its own breed in the human race.

    They program our kids from their first day in school,
    No matter how much we teach 'em that tellin' aint cool.
    So, by the time that they're five yrs. old and on,
    They're told to rat on their dad & snitch on their mom.
    Yeah, this country promotes it and gives it protection,
    Then puts it back on the streets to spread it's infection.

    Oh, and the Feds really love the rats that do drugs,
    With a real smooth quickness they'll hook 'em right up.
    'Cause the cops always have the best **** in town,
    So, they'll just give 'em their fix then follow them around.
    Hell, in this day and time it's the new way to be,

    'Cause you can still do crime...
    'Give up three and go free'.
    Well, I say: "*ill 'em all and send them to *ELL"
    And if anyone asks...
    I'LL NEVER TELL!!

    If you could have one each of any guitar/amp/pedal and these three would be all you'd have for the rest of your life, which three?

    Hmmm... I'd have to say that if I could only have one guitar it would have to be a Fender Deluxe SSH Stratocaster upgraded with CS 69s and a Pearly Gates in the bridge. This would give me the most flexibility (single coils, humbucker, tremolo). Probably go with Sienna Burst and maple neck.

    As for the amp... I don't have too much experience with amps, but I'd probably go with a Marshall Super Lead 100.

    As for the pedal, given that I can only have one, I'll probably go with a Line6 XT Live to cover all the bases.

    Kind of a boring answer - sorry - I'll try better with the next question.

    Donuts or Bagels?
    I like them both, thank you very much. I guess overall I prefer bagels because they are like a SSH stratocaster - very flexibile. You can eat them straight, put cream cheese on them, create a PB&J sandwhich, eat them with eggs and bacon, etc... My favorite bagel/donut shop is Dunkin' Donuts.

    Some history:
    Captain Hanson Crockett Gregory was the inventor of the donut with a hole in the middle.

    William Rosenberg, the food-franchising pioneer founded the Dunkin' Donuts chain. Rosenberg opened his first coffee and doughnut shop, called the Open Kettle, in Quincy, Massachusetts in 1948. The name was changed to Dunkin' Donuts in 1950.

    You can spell "donut" in two ways: Generally, the "donut" is the Americanized version of the British "doughnut".

    Have you ever been to Star's Hollow?
    Interesting... I have never heard of it so I just Googled it and it is the fictional town in Connecticut used as the setting of Gilmour Girls. Since I have never watched the show I cannot comment on that town. I can, however, tell you a story about the place THAT town is supposed to be based on: Washington, CT. Yes, there is a town in Connecticut called Washington.

    I visited said town about 8 years ago on a DJ gig. I used to DJ weddings on the weekends with my buddy Jack. In the summer we'd DJ 5 - 6 weddings a month. Nice money ($900 - 1500 per wedding).

    Anyhow, we had a gig in Washington, CT and I'd never heard of the place. We eventually found the place, which is in the middle of nowhere, just north of ain't got a clue. The place is literally 100 years behind the rest of the world. It's like Colonial Williamsburg was teleported to northern Connecticut except all the people don't know they are actors. Anyway, the hall didn't have very many electrical outlets available and we had to run two very long extension cords to get the power to the DJ equipment. Well, as you can guess, people kept tripping on the cords and knocking out the music. Man, you don't want to be there when a bunch of middle-aged white people are dancing to "Do You Love Me" or "Sweet Caroline" and the power goes out. It gets ugly. Especially when the power goes on and the first CD starts spinning out "Gettin' Giggy With It"...

    De Niro or Pacino?
    Tough call... I like more of De Niro's movies, and I think he's the better actor, but I think he's had more bad movies that Pacino. On the other hand, I don't really like Pacino in general, but some of his movies are simply epic. I guess if I had to make a call for one of them in their prime for a movie I'd go with Pacino.


    Alice in Chains or Corrosion of Conformity?
    Dude, I'll go with Alice in Chains, but only because I can't really stand singers with growly voices. The problem is, while I SHOULD like AIC, I don't. I don't know why - everything is there, but I just never got down with them.

    Girlfriend story for each band...

    Saw Alice In Chains open for VH during the F.U.C.K tour. Took my girlfriend Hannah. She was crazy hot. Much too hot for me... She looked like Rachel Hunter. Unreal. But she was 3 years younger (19 and 16) which is probably why I got her. That is why I also never "closed the deal" with her (which is a crying shame). Anyway, The show was awesome, and AIC was really good. They had just come out with "Man in the Box" so that was the only song I knew, but we both listened to them on the way home. Nice memory.

    The other... so I'm sorta listening to COC back in the day (college). The album was "Blind" and this guy I'm friends with is a DJ at the college radio station. He introduces me to COC and other harder stuff (Mr. Bungle, etc). Most of the stuff doesn't jive with my musical sensibilities, but whatever. So one day I'm supposed to go to the studio with him and he calls me and tells me to forget it. No explanation. I find out later the next day that he's banging my girlfriend and the two of them are moving to Texas after the semester is over. (She was another knockout. Don't ask me how I got her - I think it was pure persistence on my part). I get hammered that night, walk back to my apartment and wake up on the side of the street as apparently I passed out about 300 feet from my apartment door.


    Coke or Pepsi?
    Neither. If I drink soda it is 7up. The uncola.

    Honestly, I was running out of options for winter. I like the classic Grolsch pilsner, and I drink it in the winter (and the fall, and the summer, and the spring for that matter) so I threw it down. Other than Corona-esque beers I don't really change it up during the seasons.

    Let's be honest. I drink Guinness 90% of the time.

    If you ever come out west you have to try a different Donuts shop then Dunkin' Donuts.
    I used to live where all there were for donuts is Dunkin's and they are not good, azt that point bagels were better. But west of the Missippi there are better dounuts francises and mom and pop dounut shops.

    I tend to go there for the coffee more than the bagels and donuts... but I'll definitely check out some shops next time I'm out west.

    This is really the kind of stuff you guys want to know about? Wow!

    I must be with the right group of people!

    No, to answer your question, I've never been caught. I must admit that my parents were probably skeptical during my "56 minute shower" phase. Funny story (I have a story for everything, if you haven't guessed)...

    In high school a guy I was friends with could grow a beard and looked 18 or 19 so he would buy us girly/porn mags... but we didn't settle for Playboy or Penthouse, we wanted to crazy stuff... (this was 1987). So, he buys me this mag called "Oralama," which is a mag about.... well, oral stuff. So anyway, like the moron I am, I brought the magazine into school to show a few friends. During one of the my classes a guy reached into my bag and pulled out the magazine and started to pass it around the room. It went through 3 or 4 people's hands before the teacher (a cool guy who wasn't 100% "there" all the time) noticed something was up. He stopped class and asked "whatever that is, bring it to me". So the guy brings it up and the teacher looks at it, like, WTF?! He asked who's it was, and I raised my hand. Hey! That cost $7.00 - I wanted it back! The girls in class all thought I was a total sleazeball... man, I wonder if any of them remember that... anyway, the teacher just handed it back to me and asked that I keep that material at home. Can you believe it!?

    Well, I like to think that if any of us really looked deep into our souls and were truthful to ourselves, we would likely find that if we found ourselves in the situation to do it, we would, although we would likely not feel very proud about it.

    On the other hand, there are those who have been in that very same predicament and declined to do it. They chose not to do it, even though they realize that they probably should have done it.

    Then there are those who did it, and wished that hadn't done it, because they knew it was probably the wrong thing to do at the time.

    Conversely, I've always held that if you are in a position to do it, and you don't, you will regret not doing it even though you know that doing it would have not been the right thing to do.

    If you could fight any historical figure, who would it be?

    What dining set defines you as a person?

    What's New England like to live in? The only two things I know about it are rain and Robert Frost.

    tell us a bit about your musical background.

    how interested are you in art?

    you've been a pretty solid contributor since first joining the forums, what brought you here?
