Us Against The World

Nita Strauss: talks RGT320Z prestige and pickups and consumes the fire

Nita Strauss It's an RGT320Z prestige.. I have a DiMarzio D Activator in the bridge and an Evolution in the neck as well as a couple other cool customizations :) ... I love the D- Activator. It's kind of similar in tone to an EMG 81 but without the internal preamp so it's very expressive. Great harmonics too. I have a D-Activator in the bridge of almost all my guitars. Nice and quiet when muting too.. most pickups with super high output like this will get a ton of feedback

Fred Brum: The Art Of Suffering is Suffering for your Art!

Fred Brum  In spite of the delays caused by the whole process regarding copyrighting my material and ensuring all paperwork was in check, the cover work for the album is now complete and the CD is getting ready right after a final adjustment and printing colour check. I expect to receive the CD’s, ready for my autograph / dedication marathon sometime next week, and off to your mailboxes it goes (along with the tee, for those who ordered one)!

I can’t thank you enough for your patience regarding this matter and for your understanding of the shortcomings of facing the paper jungle that is protecting one’s work when you’re a one man operation.

In case you have somehow missed it due to some pesky email filter, everyone who has purchased the CD has access to the MP3 at no extra cost. please don’t hesitate to email me should you have not received the link to download the MP3 content from.

Chris Brooks: Must have album review and give away

Full review and give away:
There is a lot of “Morse” moments because of the band working together so well with Chris, but moreover he kept his mind on making music and knew when to shred and when to harmonize, build, changeup, let loose, and come back down. It’s hard to lose interest in this album for me. It’s like my playlist. I’ve always been happy with a few tracks to add to my playlist. I even started buying two or three tracks from albums. It’s been the norm. But this…this album is a must have. The samples just can’t do it justice. You have to take the ride! …and HOLY LEGATO!!!!!!!!

Adam Nolly Getgood, Misha Mansoor: Periphery album finished

Do not watch this in HD.

The plot of the video:
"Okay, how does this look on me, guys?" Aerith said as she stood in front of a mirror with a yellow sun dress on. "It looks really cute!" Yuffie said through a wide smile. "Yea, yellow really matches you. It looks as cute as a button on you." Tifa said nicely as she nodded her head. "Cute?" Aerith repeated.

Aerith wasn't shopping for cute clothes. She wanted something sexy and mature. "Okay, I'll just get something else" she said to herself. She quickly walked to the clothes rack and skimmed through until she saw something that was sexy and mature. After putting the dress on, Aerith was once again in front of the mirror waiting for what her friends thought of the dress.

Yuffie, Tifa, and Aerith all examined the dress carefully. It was a soft red lace, embroidered by small flowers. Its bosom was heart shaped causing her breast to be lifted. The dress was held up by a strap that was tied around her neck creating a bow. Her back was completely exposed. The dress was very form fitting around the waist but was loose around her hips and legs. It went about 4 inches above her knees with a slit to the side.

"So?" Aerith said nervously. "It's a pretty dress, Aerith." Tifa began, "But isn't it, well..." Tifa stuttered. "What? Is it what?" Aerith asked worriedly. Yuffie jumped in and spoke, "It's kinda sexy." Aerith's face lit up with happiness. "It is!" Aerith proclaimed as she clasped her hands together. "Why are you happy about that?" both the girls asked. "What do you mean? I want to look sexy." Aerith's voice was happy but trailed off, " I wanna look sexy don't I?"

We Finished The Album!
