    I bought another guitar!!!!

    Years ago I briefly strummed a Takamine and really loved the sound and feel. Good for you. I figure maybe at some future point I'll buy another guitar but I've got plenty between my Fender Strat, my Ibanez (used from a music store in LA) and Briarwood acoustics and a relatively cheap but fun electric I picked up with a mini-amp mainly for when I'd jam with friends at a bar and didn't want to risk worrying about people spilling beer on the Strat. cheers

    Beatles Play List

    There's a series of books under that title that cover a group's albums. Some are well written and some while well witten become more about the author's perspective and commentary and less on the record or music itself. They're small paperbacks, fit in the palm of your hand, well, a bit larger than that but the only one I could recommend is Pixies: Doolittle. cheers

    The Double LP That Tom Never Had

    Nice. Works for me. Wildflowers works as a title of a double album since presumably they grow all over, perhaps a metaphor for Tom's songwriting and the contents within. I guess we'll know when All The Rest eventually arrives.

    But didn't Tom have his directly connected to water pipes? Now what could be the difference between pouring water in from the top or having it connected directly but maybe it alters something? Maybe he had higher water quality, filtered and such, I don't know. I have had good coffee in diners but never asked what they used...

    I've had Bunn coffee makers for more years than I can count. When one goes bad, I buy another one. There is nothing a Bunn "Drip Coffee Maker" can do that any other drip coffee maker can do, they just last longer til they start leaking through the bottom because of a cheap plastic disk in the body. I have taken these apart and cut a piece of plastic out of a coffee can cover and replaced the original and they have worked for years! It's up to you, if you want to give it a shot. I would!

    Now I'm intrigued by the coffee machine that Tom had. Do we know exactly what model it was? I see these from Bunn that are $250. It's $240 if you don't want the warmer on top. I'm actually tempted to buy one. I'd also be curious of the exact measurements he used. Anybody know Dana?

    The Brown Album...no. The Honey Brown Album...nope. Maybe the Tan Album. Or....better yet... Wait for it.... . . . . . . THE WHEAT ALBUM. get it?

    Maxwell House

    Again, it might not have been just the taste of Maxwell coffee that Tom liked, but all the memories and experiences back in Gainesville that were connected to it. That diner he stumbled upon brought him back to a simpler time, a special moment. A season of life & youthfulness that only happens once. And he wanted to 'savor' that again. And the professional Bunn installation at home probably helped recreate the cheap diner coffee experience perfectly. And it probably didn't taste too bad (maybe the rest of us don't know how to make Maxwell taste good, ha). But how could Warren Zanes even agree that TP's coffee tasted better than Starbucks, every time, to the last drop (pun intended). My wife and I love coffee...even classic hole-in-the-wall diner coffee in the small mugs. When the server comes by every 3 minutes and asks if you need a refill. Ahhh the simple pleasures of life. Since reading that article, we've even looked into getting a Bunn Automatic Coffee Maker as joint Christmas present. Maybe it's the nostalgia experience. Maybe we're just overboard and weird.

    Isn't that just the Kinks' "Lola"?

    Fooled Again With s Sausage (I Quite Like It) ? Makes me think... if this was a fan forum dedicated to the late great Barbeque Bob....

    I bought another guitar!!!!

    Yes I have tested the pickups and they both work and sound great! I was surprised, I didn't think they would work from the reviews I read, which was fine with me, because I was going to get the L.R. Baggs pickup if they didn't work.

    "...with a sausage"

    On my local radio station, the morning host is having quite a giggle about adding "with a sausage" to the end of song titles. So, let's take this in the logical direction. "Don't Come Around Here No More With a Sausage" (must've gone vegetarian) "Runnin' Down a Dream With a Sausage" (driving the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile?) "It's Good To Be King With a Sausage" (I guess having one might be a requirement) "The Man Who Loves Women With a Sausage" (this...could be taken several ways) "Don't Do Me Like That With a Sausage" (errr) "You Got Lucky With a Sausage" (umm) This is probably a good place to stop.

    I bought another guitar!!!!

    Two years ago, I bought a guitar I hope will end my guitar buying days. At least as far as acoustics go. It's a Takamine P6N and the most thrilling thing about it - apart from sound and playability - is its preamp system and that it allowed me to use the built-in pickup in combination with my LR Baggs active soundhole pickup. It really gets the sound I want. But seeing this Epiphone really makes me itchy... what a beauty! And not expensive! Have you tested the pickups, nurktwin?

    The episodes I thought were awful but the opening credits scene I did like. 🤪

    sure, you're right, fractions look weird... but inmy defense, what about the album / LP by George Harrison - called Thirty Three and A Third ????

    My scanner mucked this up when I scanned it back when and attempts to fix it just made it worse. Does anyone have a copy without the rainbow lines?

    Beatles Play List

    For some reason, I think the 217 song list is a bit short. I think it's more like 314 songs!!!!!

    Coffee! Made this a few years ago. Just thought it was fitting.

    I tried Trader Joe's instant coffee, I thought it would be good considering it is a pricier grocery store but I think the Taster's Choice instant is better. Non Bunn machine. Hot water in a pot boiled on the stove. Crafting a good quality instant coffee is not an easy feat.

    The Double LP That Tom Never Had

    It's a good thing this subject isn't the Dimple LP that Tom never had, I think focusing on his hair in other pictures is more than enough. Too much even.

    Beatles Play List

    I try not to listen to anymore than 15/33 of any Beatles album in a year though, unless it's a leap year in which case I use an album as a frisbee. You should see how far Let It Be will soar!
