500 series rack

I’m not using the 500 series rack yet, but I’m seriously considering. I was thinking to start with the Elysia XPressor or NVelope & building in a 6 space Lindell 506 Power from there. I was thinking not only for recording but also using on top of my amp live. It allows you to mix and match any pieces depending on what you need, and it gives you a broad selection in just a small number of rack spaces.

Presonus Firebox

Worked straight out of the box and never missed a beat. Solidly built little fella. I can only compare it to a few other audio interfaces I’ve used in the past (an old USB Tascam USsomething, m-audio mobile pre, a tapco Link.USB and a cheap behringer mixer) and it sounds much better to those rightly so, cheaper, interfaces. No problems with reliability, though I have only used it for getting my sounds into my computer and haven’t exactly stretched it. 2 channels of backing music and 1 channel for click track, should be great for my application. Get your presonus firebox at guitar center.

Best Fiberfill

I’m building my first pond (approx. 600 gallons) and I want to build my own filter as well. The cheapest and best fiberfill that I saw is the polyester fiberfill that I will use as a mechanical filter media.  This stuff is very similar to what is used in our power filter for our indoor aquarium, and I thought that since this stuff was relatively inexpensive, that it would be good for this purpose.  I would use the polyester fiberfill on top of a layer of lava rock (as the biomass part of the filter) and then a coarser material (screen or mesh) on top of that to catch the big stuff.



Paris Luxury Apartment

I’ve used parisluxeapt.com for Paris apartment rentals. It seemed to work pretty good for me. The Paris Luxe people just match you up and host the listings. They do more than that, but that’s it in a nutshell.

The apartments are high end, beautifully decorated and have great amenities. I have used them almost every time that I go to Paris. You will not be disappointed for sure.

I plugged in Paris during mid-April for 4 nights and quite a few availability came up. Give it a look and see.


JBL SpeakerI usually work with quite few systems ( not all at the same time but depending on the venues we go to) – we use JBL SRX , Mackie systems, Turbosound aspect (100.000 watts RMS) and few other systems like Dynacord and so on. On any of these speakers i have never had a problem in 25+ years. JBL is well known for making solid and dependable speaker systems and it is uncommon to hear about any of their components failing.


Swimsuit for Size 6 D Cup


You should check out Profile by Gottex if you are looking for a swimsuit the will fit your generous bust size.

The tops and bottoms are sold separately. Bottoms come from bikini to more modest swim skirts. You can mix and match.  It is not easy to find such a supportive and attractive suit like the profile by gottex line.

The top actually has a real, true, actual cup size underwire bra built in. Not just a shelf bra (bigger chested gals know how useless those are) and not just a “S-M-L-XL type of bra. The bra actually hooks in the back, but that’s covered by the swimsuit. Hard to describe, but once you see it you’ll agree that it’s absolutely ingenious. It’s like wearing a real, true, proper fitting underwire bra under your swimsuit for great support.

The cups are lightly padded–just enough to prevent NP but not so much as to add any size.

They come up to Cup Size E. They aren’t cheap, but you will never feel so comfortable and so confident in a bathing suit. And absolutely no worries about “wardrobe malfunctions” even on the widest water slide.

I can’t endorse these enough. I’ve worn all the others–Carol Wior for example–and

Affordable Pignose Amps

Pignose AmpI recently went to buy a Pignose for my Tele Deluxe for home/portable use. I ended up with the Pignose Hog 30 Amp instead. It has an 8″ speaker and a 30W amp. Funk Bass switch for extra punch and depth. Also features volume and master volume controls as well as a 3-band EQ. I like it a lot (for what it is), but it depends on the sound your after. They are also very affordable pignose amps. It doesn’t do Fender clean, but then neither do the ‘Noses that I’ve heard. If the Fender sound is your thing, try the Fender Pro Jr.


Discount Cigars

Famous Smoke CigarsI know there must be more than a few of you who, like Fidel Castro, enjoy a fine cigar.  The famous-smoke.com is a great source for premium cigars. They offer discount cigars and/or low prices because at the Famous Smoke Shop you are not paying for the fancy woodwork and leather chairs that adorn so many cigar shops and lounges.  They ship everywhere in the U.S. directly via UPS from their climate-controlled humidor.



Oboz Luna Hiking Shoes

You might think that buying shoes is not a big deal… and you can buy them instantly without thinking the good and the bad’s about the shoes you are about to buy. Often people buy designer shoes irrespective of the fact that they fit properly. A good shoe is one which is a perfect fit, is comfortable and is comfortable all the times and there is no exception when they are not comfortable.

Oboz Luna is a reliable and durable brand name of hiking shoes as well as the kind of durability the shoes are having.  The cushions of the shoes are soft, comfortable and is worth spending so much amount on. The shoes are tolerant enough to make high jumps and have breathability.
