  1. ... well, the only thing better than laughing at someone else's pain is laughing at your own pain. Hopefully Esca is amused. :s
  2. Fine, here's some useful advice: The original question has no valid answer in the scope given.
  3. ... it will return some day in the future. Hopefully before I move. Why I couldn't exchange it at Gamestop I'll never know, Activision is dumb. In the mean time, I guess I'll play songs from Guitar Hero 3 on my guitar, and drool over GH Aerothingy and GH4 coming out this year. Is anyone getting just the GH Aerosmith disc? I want the guitar too so I'll probably get the whole pack....
  4. blahblahblah Today's games suck. They push graphics above all else. Someone said their kid wanted guitar hero and wanted it on xbox because xbox has better graphics than Wii; I told him Wii has more fun games than Xbox, since even the shitty games are fun and they're not all Call of Duty or Halo (FPSBox 360). Today's music sucks too. All these kids have iPods full of classic rock. Anyone who has good music from today is listening to either a cover band (like video game bands) or some band you've never heard of. If they're listening to Brittney or Spice Girls (okay that's yesterday, but still in my life time) they're NOT listening to anything good. I remember growing up the major topic in music was always some band sucks... Movies suck today but I love Marvell Studios. Thank God for someone not releasing constant crackhead garbage.
  5. At 50% volume I can massively overdrive my amp on 10 on my Les Paul with one pickup active. Hell, at 30% I have some sweet overdrive. At 100% volume, my amp is deep into some soft overdrive in any configuration on my S. The output from those Infinity 1/2 humbuckers is nothing. The DiMarzio pickups Ibanez ships on some models are freaking awesome, but the Infinity pickups are trash. Also I am learning to play... I started following along with the first minute or so of TTFAF and Black Magic Woman recently :3 I still need improvement but this stuff isn't really that hard to play.
  6. These are all four conductor, I can short the bottom coil out if I want. I plan on replacing the pots with push-pulls (500k) for that reason; I'm even considering having single by default and pull to humbuck for the reasons you stated ... it focuses it in a smaller area, but okay, same end result.
  7. I'm having hella trouble with this. Someone said they put a DiMarzio Chopper in the single coil slot for an Ibanez S470 and needed to do some wood work to fit it; I can't figure out why. The Infinity INFS1 single coil looks like a Strat-style single coil, and so does the Chopper but it's a bit thicker. I'm looking at an Area 58 stacked humbucker instead, wondering if it'll have the same problem; massive googling doesn't bring up anything and I've called a few guitar stores and techs and nobody knows! Does anyone know much about the form factor of stacked humbuckers versus single coils like the INFS1? Should I go with an ISCV2 instead (used in Steve Vai's signature Ibanez model, so it'll probably fit my Ibanez fine)? This complements two Evolutions (was going to be Evo in the bridge and Steve's Special in the neck, if I change my mind I have two Steve's Specials on hand), I'd rather mix the Area 58 or Chopper into it than go Evo-Evo-Evo.
  8. Honestly, I can understand being social for a couple hours, but two days is a little taxing on me. I don't think I can swing that in one go; Satan has already sent me a C&D for the last ice storm they had down there. Seriously? If there's enough people there I'll go. I'm no good with small crowds; I'd rather a bigger group.
  9. I've only got 1 passenger capacity. You can either talk to me or listen to loud heavy metal.
  10. Hearos are extremely good. I use them for testing the higher gain settings on my amps, and in general for playing freaking loud on anything with a crunchy overdrive. They sound great, and they work really well, enough that you can blast whatever without much trouble. Edit: I've tested these with ~5W on max output (5.7W), they do fine; every doubling of power adds 3dB, so 80 watts amps should give 12dB louder, 160W 15dB, and 320W 18dB. Since they have about 18dB attenuation, you can expect a 300W amp to sound akin to my bedroom amp without earplugs.
  11. You laugh, but I actually hear their food is really good. I've never been there. Every time I go out with people it seems to fall to Japanese, Mongolian, or Chinese. Unless I'm hanging at Denny's (my social life consists of Denny's, it's complicated). Let's get a Rick Astley CD and a portable boom box and spend 3 minutes at the Inner Harbor, then act like absolutely nothing happened and disperse.
  12. There's a minimal view but I don't like it. Besides, you don't really get to see the playlist. ... can be made narrower (as wide as the menu), but it's that tall. Useless. Edit: Oh yeah, I can add a toy that docks a play/pause button to my panel and that's it, but bleh. It's got a remote control icon up there anyway. Oh yeah, let's see you shop/download/listen to new music through stores in XMMS huh >
