    Green Hornet = BIG NO!

    Saw this last evening and it was terrible! So much hype but it was just a lame attempt at another comic book hero movie. I though Seth Rogen was bad........wait for the DVD if you must see this.

    Vancouver or Boston? Who wins Lord Stanley's cup?

    I'm saying Vancouver even though I wouldn't be unhappy with Boston getting it since they are an original team.

    NED - El Capistan

    Just got this yesterday. Traded away my Strymon Timeline (great delay but took up too much real estate) and got the Strymon El Capistan. Really really great tape delay tones and reverb tones. Very tweakable and you do have to play around a bit to get what you want. They guy I got it from...

    Anybody watching the Dream Theatre auditions?

    Not a big fan myself (even though anyone has to be impressed by the technical abilities of these guys!) but this series of them looking for a new drummer is really cool to watch. Shows you that even the pros get nervous. All of these guys are just monster drummers........... YouTube -...
