Spectacular Sememes


          Feeling enervated by the dearth of opulent prose in your prosaic routine, ensnared by the treadmill of drab vernacular?

          Me too.  Thus begins our quest to find the most swank words in the English language, entirely without foresight, substantiated background sources, a five year plan, any observation of any other lists that may exist, or caffeine (commitment to one of these stipulations is dubious).

Rogue RA-100D Acoustic Guitar Review


          At under $100, the Rogue RA-100D is a step up from the lowest tier offerings of this very affordable brand, and one of the cheapest playable entries into the acoustic guitar market.

          Initially I was put off by it's plastic smell and feel, but after giving it a setup, some care, and a few months, it's grown on me.  It would be too generous to compare it to ageing like a fine wine , but could be likened to a cheap wine which, after a few months, matured into something you wouldn't mind having around the campfire with some friends (to stretch the analogy a bit).


Pics, mods, and full review after the break:

'92 Squier Korean P-Bass Review and Mods


A few months ago after messing around with an 8-string guitar, I decided that I might as well stop muddling about in-between guitars and basses and go all the way into bass territory.  A trade yielded this old Korean Squier P-bass, and after a little work it's been a fun, very usable bass to play around on.

Constitutional Amendments Study Guide List

U.S. Constitution Amendments list study guide

A little study guide I put together for a Civil Rights and Liberties course I'm taking.  I didn't find any online already that I was happy with, so I put together a concise, printable version myself - hopefully this might help a few fellow students a bit :)

Balalaika Sheet Music archive



Once in a while, you find a resource so useful it'd be a disservice to humanity to not share it.  This 497-page-long archive of balalaika ensemble sheet music might not have a large audience, but it's a huge resource for those who are interested.

Gibson Overrated Photoshop


A little Photoshop job I did for fun, figured I'd share here since a lot of people got a kick out of this in a few different guitar groups.

Vox Pathfinder 10 Instruction Manual


In case you lost yours and don't know how the thing works.  Of course, it's simple enough that that shouldn't be a problem, but it's one of the more entertaining instruction manuals for guitar gear so why not?
