I can crank my amp louder than you can  :laughing7: I found corn I can burn in my stove, not cheap though!!  Maybe I can figure out how to burn manure in my stove  :icon_scratch: I think shit is still free.

Up here in Canada we have this thing called Natural Gas.  It's a Naturally occurring Gas  :icon_biggrin: that is a by product from oil well drilling.  Burns very cleanly.  It's even piped into our houses.

Welcome to the 21's century  :toothy12:

Unlimited free steam heat. I keep opening my windows because it gets too warm. Thank God - going from LA to NY weather is a major bummer.

Like most americans this winter I plan on burning all my past due/delinquet letters from assorted creditors and debt collectors to keep warm.

My parents live in the "woods" (estern Norway) in a relatively old house and they still use the old wood stoves. My father helps the cross country skiing club making/clearing their tracks and get all the wood he cuts for free.
only cost of heating is the work + a bit of electricity.
A lot of the newer houses use pellet stoves to run their central heating systems, and you can get pellets everywhere. Those new systems are cheap, efficient and clean compared to old stoves/electricity.

I mean... cant ya just crank up an SVT head when it gets cool out?  Maybe add a Twin Reverb to the mix when it gets really nippy?

Nothin like a couple of hot slob tube amps to keep ya toasty.  Guaranteed, you throw a nice Twin Reverb under the blankets a half hour before bed time... and you'll be toasty all nite.

I used to love Sheryl Crow's music, especially playing along with it, her songs were written for guitar players to have fun with.

And then, I heard she'd bumped uglies with Kid Rock (and, for the record, he is neither...).

I can no longer listen to her.

The only "effect" Randy California ever used was the few times he turned his fuzzbox off.

The Rolling Stone list of 100 greatest singers did not include Grace Slick. It did, however, include Sinatra. I used to volunteer at the local VFW, and every single WW2 veteran I have ever spoken to (European Theater) has a hatred of Sinatra.

Eric Clapton used to own a Ferrari 250TDF that was orignally owned the son of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

Off topic? Don't even try. I am the king.

Heh, cool.  Similar fun facts:

The guy who invented daylight savings time is the great-great-grandfather of the guy from Coldplay.
When Andre the Giant was in high school, he couldn't fit in the bus, so his neighbor Samuel Beckett drove him to school.

You'd be surprised how true that is.  When I'd go deer hunting in California, cattle grazed the area in the off season, there were plenty of cow patties to use as fuel for starting a camp fire.  Same thing with a bag of Frito's.  A few sparks from the flint stone and they light up also.

Modern living means never having to light poop on fire in your house to avoid freezing to death.  This isn't the stone age (he said on the Internet), so why are you burning shit?  :doh:

Pete Townshend helped start things like MTV Unplugged. The Secret Policeman's Ball was a benefit concert, and Pete was asked to play an acoustic guitar, but keep the Who songs.
