    After probably close to 15 years, my trusty MOTU 828 finally stopped working. :( What should I replace it with? I don't need a ton of I/O, all I use these days is my Axe-Fx and the occasional DI box when I want to reamp shit. My only requirement is that it's Thunderbolt. Right now I'm between...

  8. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    This is the first amp that I've had die. Typically I flip amps quite a bit but my JTM45 has been with me the longest. I was playing it tonight and all of a sudden I hear a pop and then the amp sounded really noisey. I stopped to see if a cord had come loose. When I settled back to try...

    My ancient Sharp 32" Cathode TV Finally kicked the bucket. Now I finally had an excuse to get one of those fancy flatscreen tvs. I didn't want to spend a ton of cash so I picked up a Vizio M series 49" from Best Buy. My living room isn't super big so I didn't want to go over 50". Plus no way...

    My stupid amp seems to have blown again. It's a '79 Acoustic G100-112, basically a 2 channel Mark II clone that got Acoustic sued HARD in 1980 and run out of business. This is the original Acoustic amp company, not the current one. It's been repaired half a diozen times over the last 20 years...

    Something weird happened this evening. I put the guitar down for a brief while, picked it up again, and the volume knob was really tight to turn. It felt like it was about to start grinding against the finis, so I loosened it and took it off. The pot was very difficult to turn, so I used a...

    Got word back from my computer tech yesterday that my laptop isn't worth the fix, and that the money would be better put towards a new computer. This is pretty devastating to me, as 100% of my income comes from me working on my laptop. I'll be borrowing a friends pc for now while I finish up all...

    Ray Bradbury, Author Of 'Fahrenheit 451' And Other Classics, Dies : The Two-Way : NPR This is very sad news for me as he was one of my absolute favorite authors. I had actually planned on rereading some of my favorites of his, so I suppose this settles it.
