Phony Tubes

Remember that band I wrote about whose bass player fell asleep in the mix? This is the companion story.

That same band had a cocky guitar player who thought he was hot shit…. Wait a minute. Most guitar players think that. Anyway, this guy’s amp was awesome. It had more tubes than any other I have seen. It practically lit up the room.

When I looked closer I realized the tubes were not tubes at all. They were blue lights setup to look like tubes. This thing was solid state all the way.

I listen to my iPod when I mow the lawn. With this new feature I may never finish the lawn..

“Portable MP3 players and other handheld media toys are this year’s must-have geek gadgets. The latest thing is Apple’s new-generation iPod — the iPod Photo — which does for pictures what the original iPod did for music. Now you can view individual images or entire slide shows in the palm of your hand at the tap of a button to beautify your dull commute or just to pass the time in the lecture hall.

Playboy has harnessed this latest digital innovation so some of our sexiest girls next door can be added right to your portable player. Simply download this free image gallery to your desktop from and upload it to your iPod Photo handheld device. If iPod Photo is “a feast for the eyes” on its own, it’s a veritable ocular orgy now that has dialed up the heat a few notches.”

The helpful cabbie

The story you are about to read is fiction. 😉

Some fans of my band had a problem with a jerk of a club owner one night. The club was a dive and was about ready to go out of business. These fans were so mad they wanted to get back and the owner for being such an ahole.

So they decided that they were going to “acquire” the club’s PA. The PA had a pair of high speakers with 15″ cones and horns. The subs were 18″. These were of a brand to be unnamed at this time but I understand they were from Lansing. There were also a few wedge monitors, cables and more.

Ok their plan is in place except for one problem: They are too drunk to drive. So they call a cab. When the cab arrives they inform the cabbie that they’re stealing the PA from this club. The cabbie then volunteers to help them because he too has been wronged by the ahole club owner. The cabbie even helps them load the speakers out of the club.

Only about 1/2 of the PA fits into the cab. So they actually load the first half, take it home and return for the other half!
