  1. For those in the Montreal area, the Habs are having their used equipment sale on Saturday, February 16 from 9:30 to 3:30 at the Bell Center.
  2. After being stuck on a plateau for the last 2 and a half months, I'm finally under 240, weighing in at 237 as of this morning. 90 pounds lost in just over 18 months. Hopefully I'm on a roll now and the race to get to 100 won't take as long!
  3. Habs memorabilia and game-used equipment sale is this coming Saturday as per Twitter and http://canadiens.nhl...ge.htm?id=78984 Edit: Just to get some of you goalies excited, Montreal Canadiens posted this on Twitter https://twitter.com/...3565568/photo/1 It says: You want to play like Price... or at least look like him (Montreal Canadiens Used Gear Sale)
  4. Yep aside from the quilted maple top, there sure is a lot of mahogany on it. The neck is made of pieces of mahogany. I suspect that they dyed two of the pieces a different color before joining them together to give it that look but not entirely sure.
  5. It's a set mahogany neck with rosewood fingerboard. Solid mahogany body with quilted maple top. Maple top on headstock. Cream and abalone binding, graphite nut, grover tuners and a coil tap. I'm not sure if I can say it has thick tone but it is "dark". The DV8 PU it is equipped with are pretty decent. I'd like maybe just a tad more bite but pretty decent for stock PU.
  6. Here's my new guitar. It's an Indie Sun Extreme. Was worth just over $900 and got it for $550, new. Very nice guitar, plays well and sounds pretty good too.
  7. After a couple of months struggling with losing weight, I've been doing a lot better for the past two weeks and have now lost a total of 50 pounds since last November. Only another 65 pounds or so to go...
  8. JR, if you haven't already done so, push for the sleep apnea testing. I was diagnozed with sleep apnea at the end of last summer and have been using a CPAP mask ever since. This alone may help lowering your blood pressure. Not saying it will go down to healthy levels with that alone but it does help and sleep apnea CAN be one of the many causes associated to high blood pressure. I'm sure you are aware by now that you need to limit your sodium intake as well as losing weight. If you can control your sleep apnea, it will be easier to lose weight too as you'll have more energy throughout the day and will potentially eat less too. My blood pressure was at 146 over 110 last November and I was a fat ass. The doctor wanted to prescribe high blood pressure medicine and I asked for an alternative, which was to lose weight. I lost 44 pounds since and my blood pressure, last I checked was down to 130 over 90 (I was weighing 327 by the way). A few changes to your lifestyle will go a long way and who knows, you may even be ready on time for Summer Jam. Try staying active too even if it means only light exercises like walking etc. This helps lowering blood pressure as well and will help you shed a few pounds over time.
  9. It would be a different thing if 100 other people wanted to intervene and stop the dumbasses wreaking havoc but when you're on your own to try and stop some dipshits, best to just leave the area and let the cops do their work. As it's been said, if all the bystanders had gone home, it would have made things a lot more easier for the police and that in itself may have twarted the riots almost by itself. If there are only a couple of dozen people left downtown doing dumb stuff with no one but cameras and cops watching, they'd probably just flee the area too.
  10. Yikes, hope that it's nothing serious regarding the medical emergency.
  11. 3 days in a row this week that my bus is stuck in traffic on days where it was very hot and humid with no AC and some people who "forgot" to use deodorant..
  12. Got my Hardwire TL-2 Metal Distortion last week. Used it a couple of times already and I must say that I'm quite happy with the result. I can have some very good distortion levels even at low volumes which is what I was looking for when I purchased it. Very happy with the purchase. However, it needs a bit of a boost for soloing but I don't solo much cause I just plain suck so it's not a problem for me. Either way, most people will use a clean boost or other types of boost for soloing no matter what amp or distortion pedal they use anyway.
  13. Weighed myself this morning as I do every Friday morning when I get up. Lost 3.5 pounds in the last week which brings me to 287 down from 327 when I started eating better back in early November 2010. 40 pounds down, 60 pounds to go if I want to meet my doctor's target or 87 pounds to go if I want to meet my target of weighing 200 pounds. Plus my blood pressure is under control down from 140 over 110 to 130 over 90 last I checked. Will take my blood pressure tomorrow to see where I'm at which I believe will be somewhere near 125 over 85 or so i think. The better eating habits and regular excercises are starting to pay off.
  14. The HT-5 has two tubes. A 12AX7 in the pre-amp and a 12HB7 in the Power Amp. The gain is alos achieved in part by the solid-state rectification. http://www.blackstaramps.co.uk/pdf/reviews/guitarist%20HT-5%20review.pdf
