    If you had the space/opportunity to have a 6-foot pile-0-guitars, would you? Or do you have just 1-2 you would stick with? (Amps OR guitars) Or would you have one axe and 15 amps or vice-versa?

    Do you have a "music room" type area to play in, or do you just play wherever in your place you happen to be? (My stuff is just in a corner of my unfinished basement)
    Weather is usually pretty stable here in the winter. 40's and lower up through Feb, when it starts to climb back up. This year, it's been pretty screwy. It got super cold, then yesterday it was 80*, and now it's 50* and raining cats and dogs. I heard it was going to be an unusually wet winter, and so far, that's proven to be true.

    I typically don't listen to radio. Here in Houston, we used to have Rock 101 KLOL, but Clear Channel came in and now it's a top 40. Thankfully, my work truck (the only vehicle I drive) has a bluetooth system and a Spotify subscription. It makes life easier.

    When my wife and I were early in our marriage and had only one kid, yeah, I had my own space. We had a three bedroom apartment and one was *my* room. But, these days, with four kids and two guitars, my music equipment has been regulated to a little corner of my bedroom, to come out only when being played.

    What is it that you want to say?

    Next most important question...
    Metallica or Megadeth?
    Three minutes? What I would like to say isn't within the accepted frame of the Forum, but it would consist of several quotes from Saint John Paul II, hopefully for the betterment of the world.

    Second question: Metallica. I'm a big fan of catchy, hook songs. I want something that I can listen to over and over again without getting tired of it, and often times, I'm listening to music while simultaneously performing another task, so I really have no desire to focus on nuances. Plus, I like Hetfield's voice better.

    Nurse! Fetch the defibrillator.

    The Well appears to have dried up again.

    That's cool. You have it more figured out than most other people, it seems.

    Re: The Well CXXV: Beandip 2.0

    That's an incredibly difficult question to answer. These days, I have no rig. There is nothing to modify to achieve a certain goal, so I'm literally starting from nothing. However, I've learned some good lessons from my years tone chasing (I started when I was 12-13), and then this hiatus from playing: There's no reason that I need to have it all.

    For years, I was chasing the guitar and rig that could do absolutely everything and do it well. I wanted dirty blues to the brown sound to metal to punk to everything in between, and I wanted it to be high caliber. Don't need it anymore.

    These days, I'd be perfectly content with a solid body electric of varying styles, with a thick neck and good frets, and an amp that doesn't sound half bad (I remember being quite smitten with the little mini Vox amps several years ago).

    Re: The Well CXXV: Beandip 2.0

    Hands down the best thing that Texas has that Florida doesn't is the food. My wife and I used to reminisce about the food all the time. When we got back, we went on a two week binge of tacos, brisket, kolaches, klobasnek, and everything else. Now, to give credit where credit is due, Florida has some bangin' Latin American food. I married a Puerto Rican, so at least I've got that. But the real Cuban, Colombian, and Dominican food was of the chart. I would also add that Texas seems to have a kind demeanor, while where we were at in Florida, was very much a "Little New York". No one held doors for each other, everyone avoided eye contact and making small talk in the grocery line. Hell, I had a lady call corporate and complain saying that I might as well have called her a raging *****. Turns out, it's because I kept saying "ma'am".

    Some of the things that Florida has that Texas doesn't, obviously are the beaches. We were only a few miles from Siesta Key Beach, which was constantly rated as the best beach in the US. Sure, Texas has Galveston and South Padre Island, but they simply can't compare. Also (ironically enough), where we were at, there was a very healthy competition between service providers, which worked in favor of the consumer. Here, it seems to be a localized monopoly (We have to have ATT for internet and cable, we have to have WCA for trash, we have to have Monarch for water. There are no options). I would also like to mention the inhibition to wear bathing suits everywhere. This often brightens one's day.
