I have a Marshall Valvestate 80v Model 8080 that I bought back in the dark ages, before the Internet, Candy Crush, and cell phones. It’s a great amp although it needs to be played a bit louder than I’m comfortable with to really get it to shine. I, in fact, do not like playing loud. I value my hearing, but beyond that, it’s just never something I feel right doing in my house since my neighbors do not wish to hear a rousing rendition of whatever song I’m trying to write at the time, so I like to...

When you’ve been immortalized in a Lego figure! Dennis from Dragon Leatherworks has made, well, I’ll let him tell you You all by now probably know that I worked on the Jurassic Park movie coming out this summer, called Jurassic World. We were asked to create a knife sheath and multitool holster for the character that Chris Pratt portrayed. Well...the LEGO figurine of the Chris Pratt character is coming out, and if you look REAL close, the multitool holster on the belt of the LEGO figure is...

On Tuesday, we were at the Magic Kingdom. It was pretty hot at times as the sun here in Florida can be brutal, so it was shorts & t-shirt weather. Except for the lady in the full burqa. The black burqa. Her husband of course was in less modest attire and thankfully so – had he been forced to lug around the backpack full of camera gear as well as another backpack full of snacks & drinks, his shorts would have helped disperse some of the extra heat, but that’s what he had his little slave...

Went to Disney for a few days for spring break with the kids. One of those things you try not to announce beforehand because advertising you aren’t at home isn’t the best idea, even though we had a house sitter. The bag check is a joke with no punch line. You could smuggle 8 bricks of C4 through there in metal containers labeled ‘C4 for blowing up Space Mountain’ and the bag people wouldn’t see it. However, that’s not their only line of security. I happened to have my Ken Onion Blur clipped to...

I was driving somewhere on Saturday that required the use of the highway. Traffic was a bit heavy as people were trying to get onto I4 to go to the Strawberry Festival, but the left lanes were clear. Until this jackass pulled out of the slow lanes to try to get 2 cars ahead and comes to a dead stop. He got the horn, I got the finger – and then he went full road rage. This guy pulled out of line, missed his turn intentionally, and started chasing me. In my rearview I could see him signaling for...

Just check out this paragraph The city of 188,000 had only one bank robbery, no murders involving a gun, and just six homicides overall, a rate of 3.2 per 100,000 residents. They mention the 6 homicides, but have to qualify the statement that they weren’t done with a gun, thus everything is hunky dory. Oh, people still got shot, of course Some attributed the drop in fatalities to bad aim by the bad guys. The number of aggravated assaults rose in 2014, so people were still getting shot, said...
