You know, craigslist hasn’t been that funny lately. Then I found a great guitar ad. It’s really a classic.
The make and model are pretty irrelevant. But the closing line is awesome (as usual, read aloud in your best tough guy voice): “This guitar rips.. you wanna shred like the big boys?- this is your new axe..”
Really, this thing rips. It absolutely shreds. And the elite group of shredders known only as “the big boys” plays this model. Some might even go so far as toÂ refer to it as a fierce medieval weapon, or a tool used to cut down towering redwoods. Just thinking about its monstrous toneÂ and enedless sustain might make you throw out all punctuation rules.Â If you’ve got the balls to take it to the next level, make this guy a reasonable offer. Trades are for fucking wimps.
On Doug Coombe’s suggestion, The Pop Project attempted to come up with a fake band name to use at tonight’s “secret” show opening for “Casey and the Moonshine Band” (aka Tally Hall) and The Kickstand Band at Savoy in Ypsi. The following are contributions from all four band members in an email chain that added up to 60 emails in one day. You’ll have toÂ guess who contributed which names.
Slinky Slam and the Smoothies
The Tough Titties
The Lady Paintings
Thee Elbow Room Managerial disputes

Before we could settle on a name, the event invite went out listing us as the Pop Project. For the best.
Yngwie Malmsteen is some cheese-metal shredder dude.
His website is amazing for two reasons.
1. It looks like a myspace page, but is not a myspace page
2. It features the artwork for his latest album (which apparently was designed by a 12 year old in 1986).
