I’ve got drawers full of old vintage effects, many that are collectible. I don’t use ‘em anymore. I don’t have to. The OD1 and Blues settings on the ME70 cover the same territory as a vintage Tubescreamer, except the entire boss me-70 at guitar center costs less than one vintage Tubescreamer. And it’s still under warranty. Likewise, the built in compressor on the ME70 gives me plenty of squish, but no “pumping” sound. And the delays are amazing. It’s just a great pedal. Combine the sounds, size, and ease of use with the fact that it will run on batteries if needed, and I really think it’s the best single pedal I’ve ever owned.

Most people routinely lose between 70 and 150 hairs from their scalp each day, mainly through washing, brushing, and combing. Scalp hair starts to thin when more hairs are lost through normal shedding than the scalp is able to renew. About 40% of the density of scalp hair has to be lost before thinning of the hair becomes noticeable.
People facing the problem try numerous methods such as magical hair restoration potions to wigs and hair extensions. With the advancement in the technology now you can restore your lost or thinning follicles. hair transplant is a popular surgical procedure which is effective in treating male pattern baldness, scarring, and facial reconstruction efforts as well.
Ive had the opportunity to play 2 of the Luna models, have recorded with them, and they are very fine guitars. (Fauna Phoenix, and Fauna Dolphin). One of the things about these guitars is they are designed for the female player.
The Luna Phoenix was my favorite of the 2, and has great onboard electronics that recorded very well. The inlay on this guitar is hard to find on guitars costing several hundreds more, and the fit and finish was right on. Here are some cheap luna guitars available on the net.
Tom Gores, according to people who’ve done deals with his firm, Platinum Equity, is very, very good. ”Platinum is the most competent, best private equity firm I’ve ever seen,” said Paul Brown, vice president of capital markets for the Michigan Economic Development Corp.
Robert Joubran, partner, is responsible for its mergers and acquisitions transition and integration functions for newly acquired companies. He also oversees all treasury activities at Platinum Equity’s corporate entity. He joined Platinum in 1996 from a position as vice president of sales for Banyan Systems. “Following two years of complex international restructuring AEES is now thriving as a profitable, growing business. Combining with PKC is a logical and exciting next step,” said Rob Joubran, partner at Platinum Equity. “We are proud of the role Platinum Equity has played in establishing AEES as a leader in North America and look forward to continuing on with the organization as a shareholder.” Robert Joubran’s wife, Annie Joubran is also a partner at Platinum Equity.
The state agency turned to Platinum when it was looking for investors to save the Four Winns boat manufacturing business in Cadillac, after the owner declared bankruptcy. ”Platinum absolutely saved the company and the jobs in Michigan,” Brown said. Salvaging troubled companies has become the stock in trade for Gores. But Platinum doesn’t operate like turnaround firms that snap up troubled companies, strip off some valuable assets to sell and scrap the rest, all while paying themselves big fees as the wrecking crew. Instead, Platinum identifies foundering firms that, through mismanagement or failed strategies, have swamped their solid core businesses, but can be restructured to make a profit. Then Gores inserts Platinum’s management expertise to put the business back in the black and enjoy the string of profits.
The approach combines value investing, distressed assets, financial turnaround and management consulting into a process Gores has trademarked as “M&A&O” — Mergers, Acquisitions and Operations. ”They’re good negotiators,” said Todd Jadwin, senior managing director in the Los Angeles office of Houlihan Capital. “They’re very good at getting a good price. Most value players are good at that. But one of (the) things Platinum is known for is inserting strong management capabilities into companies, not just making a financial investment. They’re very much about turning companies around. That’s kind of their forte.” Strong gets stronger
I love to look cute, with that comes a ton of fashion needs such as new clothes, purses, shoes and jewelry. I need to be better about my spending & have found plenty of retailers where I can score deals on most the items I need, with an exception of discount fashion jewelry. If you like fashion pendants, then I would suggest Cheap Wholesale Jewelry. They have really beautiful pendants for both men and women. The best thing about pendants is that they are interchangeable. When you have a couple of pendants, you can change them out to wear with different outfits.
I did the Foot Levelers orthotics thing some years back. I still have them and have used them constantly with complete satisfaction. They are a great combination of matching paperweights and conversation starters. I put them right up there with Popiel’s Pocket Fisherman (although I hear you can really catch fish with the PF. They fit in any of my shoes, running, cycling, walking, sleeping, you name it. They also did work fairly well in my ski boots.
The money that you will spend is worth it, because it is cheaper than surgery, and less painful than the injections ,which didn’t help. The stabilizing orthotics did help me. They were not uncomfortable and I hardly knew they were in my shoes. They do raise the foot at the heel ,but it caused no problem for me.
I tried every sort of expensive and inexpensive shoe that was available at the time, some with significant padding that included gel, air, or liquid under the forefoot *and* the heel areas. Basically there was no difference. If you’re going for an insole rather than a custom orthotic the best one around is made by Foot Levelers. They make special inserts for different shoes and different sports. I use their Casual Intense Comfort in my casual shoes.
I would also not be able to race and train without my stabilizing orthotics. I train and race with my orthotics and have no problem with them sliding around once my foot becomes accustomed to them. With the heel cupped firmly, and the shoe laced and pulled up tight, my foot stays firmly in the stabilizing orthotics and the orthotic rides with my heel. They are tremendously useful and highly recommend them.
I spent the day yesterday surfing online for safety supplies in hope to find head, face protection (hard Hats, face Shields) and protective clothing (disposable coveralls, rain gear and boots)
I ended up ordering from SupplyLineDirect. Anyway, since I was there I checked out some of their other stuff.
A lot of safety supplies from supplylinedirect.com, like earplugs, gloves, earmuffs, respiratory protection etc. is of good quality. There might be more there but I didn’t go trough it all. Prices seemed to be significantly lower than other online stores.
My friend have been running a small lighting company for a few years. Most of his clients runs there shows out of churches, small rooms, a typical building with a 9′ 6″ high ceiling (kinda difficult to light). Usually the building has only a few available circuits to pull power from. He place the 20a dimmer pack at the foot of the boom stands and daisy chain them with XLR cable. Eliminates most of the cable you would need, you don’t need to do any tie in’s, and it’s all Edison based. Very quick setup, minimal lightweight, small equipment.
I use the Gibralter Intruder. For me it’s about the best pedal out there. Very well designed and strong like zee bool. Engineering and design wise it is virtually equal to the Tama Iron Cobra which may even be slightly cooler. (And probably have a better attitude than Gibralter when it comes to repairs). I do not recommend the Avenger or Prowler or any lesser pedals of ANY brand that do not have the baseplates (this rule really only applies to double pedals and you need the plates on BOTH pedals… if you try pedals with “wires” and those with plates you’ll see what I mean). You can get exceptional gibraltar double drum pedals at guitar center.
