Feb 3 Any guitar players out there... What's your favorite axe? I'm not exactly sure if this is the best (or appropriate forum) to post this in, but I'm tired of trying to find a perfect one somewhere, so I figure why not. If anyone gets unhappy with this being posted here, obviously mods can move or delete... Anyway, as for myself, it's hard to say if I have a favorite really. I've owned and played a mexican-made Fender Strat ever since either '03 or '04, and I used to have an Epiphone Les Paul Studio, but I sold it in favor of some cymbals for a Tama Rockstar drum set I bought from my uncle a couple years back. I love my Fender Strat, but obviously with other guitars, there are different sounds and tones to be heard. I love Les Paul style guitars, but my biggest issue was with it staying in tune. My Fender Strat stays in tune nearly any time I either bend strings, or even use the tremolo bar, at least if I don't overuse it. I have 5 springs in it, so the bridge stays flat with the body all the time. Now with the Les Paul, it went out of tune ANY time I bent a string. I saw a video recently displaying which guitar(s) stay in tune best, and the Epiphone ones are ok, but not perfect. I'm looking to buy a PRS SE 245 sometime in the future. I got a Jackson DK2M earlier last year, used since any newer models don't have the aesthetics that I wanted. The one I got has a Jackson-made Floyd Rose tremolo on it, as well as locking nuts. It plays pretty good, but yeah, changing strings on it is quite a pain... But in the long-run, I'd REALLY love to get my hands on a Mosrite. I'm just upset and sad they're no longer in production, or so it appears. I understand the founder passed away back in the 90's, but I feel like why stop because he's gone... Leo Fender is gone, that didn't stop Fender from making guitars. Same with Orville Gibson. I've read in places that reissue models were being made, and one person said "only in Japan", so, I'd love to find a reissue model, but I'm wondering where I'll find one and for how much. So, if I ever get roughly $3-6k, I'll see what I can find. Just sad that nobody can find them for less than that. Although it's like with my younger cousin, he wants to get a Travis Bean with an aluminum neck, but those are no longer made new, and go for similar prices that I'm finding with old Mosrites.Oldskool2 Feb 3

Feb 2 Covers you like better than the original Today I was listening to some early motown and got thinking about covers. Usually we like the version we first heard, but sometimes the cover is the big thing. Like All Along the Watchtower, it's a Bob Dylan song but people usually identify with the Jimi Hendrix version. Anyway, here's some of my favorites: Back In My Arms Again - Genya Ravan It probably wouldn't make my top ten albums of all time, but Urban Desire is certainly in the top 100. Genya is so unknown but she is a rocker grrl who was there since the beginning. Original Supremes Version Heard It Through the Grapevine - Gladys Knight & the Pips Ok, so this isn't an original so much as another version that was released before Marvin Gaye's iconic release. I find it more fun to sing along. Here's Marvin's (get those raisins dancing!): Wish you were here - Wyclef Jean This is best with the intro "Bus Stop" Ecleftic is another one of my top 100 albums of all time, along with Preacher's Son also by Wyclef. From humor to serious subjects I just love this album. I know a lot of you will hate this, but "Whether you listenin' to hip hip-hop/Or you tuning to rock" music is always evolving :) Original Pink Floyd: Feb 2

Jan 21 Songs that make you cry... Sometimes it's a good thing. I always went by the adage that you sang the blues to rise above them. Today I put up a collection of Fleetwood Mac songs and then a collection of Paul Simon came up. I surprised myself by bursting into tears during SImon & Garfunkel's Bridge Over Troubled Waters. Man, Art had a voice of such aching purity, it's like the early Joan Baez -- the notes alone are enough to hit you in the feels. So since I was already in the cry mode, I pulled out one of my favorite albums of all time -- Somewhere Between Heaven and Earth by Cindy Bullens. I don't know why Cindy isn't better known, she sang the songs in the movie Grease when it wasn't by the main characters. She sang backup/toured for Elton John. But she took some time off dealing with the her daughter's fight/death of cancer. I would hate to think it's simply because she isn't conventionally attractive. I can't speak highly enough of the album as a whole, it's a journey through the stages of death of a loved one, powerful songs about love and loss. The whole album is worth listening to in order, but here's the title track: For something a little happier by Cindy, try this one -- Sensible Shoes, for me it has an almost Rolling Stones when they are doing blues feel (maybe it's just the hook that's like "start me up"): Tears in Heaven by Eric Clapton is another one that makes me sniffle... For other suggestions -- check out this link! Jan 21

Jan 10, 2017 SPOILERS! Vikings SPOILERS! I'm a warrior in my heart, this is one of the main reasons I play a warrior. Norse mythology is amazing! Vikings is one of my favorite TV shows currently. While I was saddened by what happened to ragnar in these last two episodes, his words were truly bone chilling and brought tears to my eyes. I can't imagine where they are taking the show without Travis fimmel but I'll be there to watch every moment. "It gladdens me to know that Odin prepares for a feast. Soon I shall be drinking ale from curved horns. This hero that comes into Valhalla does not lament his death! I shall not enter Odin's hall with fear. There I shall wait for my sons to join me. And when they do, I will bask in their tales of triumph. The Aesir will welcome me! My death comes without apology! And I welcome the valkyries to summon me home!" Jan 10, 2017

Dec 29, 2016 My Favorite Metal Bands Disturbed Seraphim (The American guys, not the Taiwanese ones.) Killswitch Engage Born of Osiris Famous Last Words We Came as Romans Trivium Ice Nine Kills Emmure Bullet for my Valentine The Amity Affliction Why these bands? Well, Disturbed was what I listened to through High School, and they got me through tough times. My favorite song by Disturbed is Perfect Insanity, with Another Way to Die at 2nd. Seraphim is a really good band, unsigned and not big, but still great. My favorite song by them is Belial, with their covers of Can't Feel My Face and Hotline Bling tied for 2nd. Killswitch Engage, to me, gives off the "honorable/sorrowful/romantic" sound without being viking metal or epic power metal. My favorite song by Killswitch Engage is My Curse, hands down, with A Tribute to the Fallen as a some far-off second. Born of Osiris' sound is just unique for deathcore, they have more intricacy in their guitars and drums than you'll find in most death metal/deathcore. My favorite song by Born of Osiris is Machine, with Illuminate as a close second. Famous Last Words' first major album, Two-Faced Charade, really spoke to me as it dealt with mental illness to a degree, which I have. Their two concept albums really speak to the soul, and they're not just songs there being songs. My favorite song by Famous Last Words is... well, it's a tie between The Show Must Go On parts 1 and 2 combined, and One in the Chamber. We Came as Romans' focus on brotherhood in their lyrics, at least in To Plant a Seed, speaks to me because of how I feel towards friends that are more like family to me. My favorite We Came as Romans song is To Plant a Seed, with Roads That Don't End and Views That Never Cease at 2nd. Trivium's sound is what makes me like them. Their sound vibe is like a mix of classic metal and modern heavy metal. My favorite Trivium song is In Waves, with Until The World Goes Cold as 2nd place. Ice Nine Kills' songs are horror-based, which is interesting. Another interesting part about them, to me, is that they started as a pop punk band. My favorite song by Ice Nine Kills is Bloodbath & Beyond with Communion of the Cursed as a close second. Emmure is another sort of unique deathcore band. Their lyrics speak to me, most particularly the repressed anger and hatred I have inside me (That yes, I'm aware of.) My favorite song by Emmure is A Gift a Curse, with Solar Flare Homicide in close second. Bullet for my Valentine deals with a lot of really sorrowful themes in their songs, and their songs tell a story that you feel through the sad/angry guitar bits and lyrics. My favorite song by Bullet for my Valentine is Waking the Demon, with Hearts Burst into Fire at 2nd. The Amity Affliction is a special band to me, because their songs deal largely with suicide, regret, guilt, and how to overcome them. I identify with all of these things, so listening to them inspires me. My favorite song by The Amity Affliction is actually a really weird five-way tie between Never Alone, Give It All, The Weigh Down, Chasing Ghosts, and Don't Lean on Me. Music is special, and metal has been my inspiration and escape. What's yours?Mathanar34 Dec 29, 2016

Dec 22, 2016 New Metallica album is their BEST YET, agree? I honestly feel that "Hardwired.... To Self Destruct" is literally the best Metallica album to date Every song on it feels BIG and MEMORABLE, the riffs are all as good as anything they have ever come up with, the songs are all catchy and stick in my head as well as anything else they have ever made. The drumming in "Now that we're dead" is the sickest !@#$ Lars has ever come up with. Am I the only one who is liking the new album this much?Jahbulon4 Dec 22, 2016
Dec 21, 2016 Lifters and Gamers Unite! Hey guys! Just like Murlocks in Westfall, there are too many myths in the fitness industry. I created this website to combat these lies and to also help lifters become more efficient in the gym. Combining my knowledge of fitness and my passion for writing, I wrote articles, workout plans, and guides for friends and family that are beginning their fitness journey. I thought I would also share it with the WoW community! Everything on the site is free, this is not a commercial venture, just a fun writing experiment for me. Please check out the site and let me know what you think! Thanks, DerodneDerodne1 Dec 21, 2016

Dec 18, 2016 Arrival movie Watched it with my wife last night, it was an interesting movie- during a particularly tense scene someone comes into the theater and yells "he's got something in his hands". My wife screamed- along with every other person in the theater. The person (who I think was just a teenager messing around) ran out. Needless to say, my wife wanted to leave right away......... anyone know how it ends? Just the last 10 minutes.Fireshock3 Dec 18, 2016

Dec 14, 2016 I Miss Dark Matter/Killjoys Night TV is pretty cruddy. Liking Sci-Fi type stuff, there is just not much on TV. If I LOVE a show, it is the kiss of death. I thought Firefly was a great show. I think this is because I just turned 50. So I have an appreciation for shows they could not have made while I was growing up. I mean, TRY to watch the old Battlestar Galactica or something like Space 1999. The only amazing Sci-Fi I can think of from when I was young was the original Star Trek (in syndication by the time I saw it, of course) I think TNG came out when I was 19 or something? I remember watching the first episode and how boring it was and not giving the series a chance, until years later when it was in syndication and I binged it. But now, they can make shows with pretty amazing effects. They are still expensive, however, which means they often don't last very long (SCI-FI shows don't usually get the best ratings.) So I was surprised when Dark Matter and Killjoys came out, both on the same night! There became kind of a Dark Matter VS Killjoys thing, on the net, of people who liked one or the other. I really grew to love them both! So working all week until 1 am, one of my highlights was coming home on Friday night and downloading both of those to watch with some beers. Now they are out of season! So I can find anything else to really watch on Friday. The highlight of my weekend is not until Sunday night now, with my Walking Dead and Westworld double feature (the later one is INSANE, I can't really believe how good that show is.) They can make insanely good Sci-Fi now, with the tech they have today. Tv shows can rival the Cinema. Ratings are king, though. Lawyer and Cop shows cost about 20 bucks to make, so they churn those out instead. They probably think "Law and Order, Omaha NEBRASKA!", would do better in the ratings than a great SCI-FI show (they are probably right.) So it gets a bit ridiculous. I'm hoping that stuff like Walking Dead and Westworld have more of a crossover audience. Any time I like a space opera, I get nervous; I'm so glad Dark Matter and Killjoys are still not canceled.Kybeorie7 Dec 14, 2016

Dec 12, 2016 Christmas is Coming It's great that despite all the divisive issues going on, that we can all come together as humans every year to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. It might not be the exact date, but it's the thought and intention that counts. It's a time for prayer, community, giving, sharing, kindness, compassion, and most importantly it's a time for spending that hard earned money on things we don't need. What do you want for Christmas? Merry Christmas EveryoneGnomobama30 Dec 12, 2016
Dec 12, 2016 The Polyrhythms Won't Leave My Head Now. It may of been suggested before... I must share this with people who believe there's no soul and talent in metal music as a generality. TesseracT - Altered State I'm sure most of the prog guys already know of this, but as a musician myself, I believe this changed my entire aspect on not just progressive metal by itself, but my entire way of seeing music has drastically changed. The polyrythms and melodies have been stuck in my head for over a week since I first listened to this album. When I picked up my guitar, now all I can do is make a melodic tune with a progressive bassline. It feels like my understanding of music has been honed and rejuvenated. I feel inspired now, I now have the hope I need to believe some day I can bring back the soul of the metal genre whenever I compose my own band some day. It's a long shot, but i'll give it my best... In due time. I hope this reaches out to other musicians.Gashadokuro0 Dec 12, 2016
