As a Panama native, in your youth you would hunt the wildlife with soft stones you would find in the nearby river. By the age of nine you constructed your own flying device and traveled to the mountainous regions of Europe to apprentice under a blacksmith. After seventy-three months you moved to the US to fullfill you're true dream; modeling. You're a dog person, the bulldog-lab-poodle blend is your preference. You're a part time musician and also a part time pastry chef.

Oh heck. I'll play!

Your 1970 VW Beetle (which you say is still 'more than enough car') has a rear-bumper sticker, which you made yourself, stating, "Leo Got It Right in '54." You keep your vintage G.I. Joes, the original 64's, in their original boxes and bristle loudly when your wife says to "get rid of those dolls"...she just doesn't get their value, does she, nor the fact that they are "action figures...ACTION FIGURES!!!

You often want to post on effects threads, looking at your board and knowing that Boss makes a fine product, but you never quite make those posts and spend a lot of time on the Internet looking either at boutique pedalmakers or the "Gaspedal Honeys" website, the home pages only, nervous on entering any of them.

You have a bottle of Pappy Van Winkle's 25 yr-old bourbon in your liquor cabinet and look at it frequently but have not opened it, waiting for "that special occasion". You know this is it-you share your pedalboard, and hours earlier you put a GI Joe up on ebay starting at $200 with a BIN price of $1000, and you've decided to rent a new Klon KTR..if anyone does indeed rent one. Yes, open that bottle, take a sip, and then put it back until that action figure sells...

On a serious note, those Boss chorus and delay pedals are pretty terrific; I loaned mine out many years ago to a friend, who not long after moved away, taking them with him...I miss the pedals...

...and what's that blue one with the two knobs?

That is hilarious! Well done.:bow
Yes, I bought those pedals new and stomped on them night after night for many years. I recently had to replace the line voltage plug on the DM-2 but otherwise they have never failed me.
The blue box is a fuzz that a buddy of mine who is an EE built for me based off a Fuzz Face type of circuit.
Thanks for an awesome review!:drink

Upon hearing Kennedy's "space speech" as a young boy in 1964 you determined in your heart that it would be you who would one day walk on the moon. Worried about crushing your dreams, your mom encouraged you. She bought you toy space shuttles. She bought you coloring books filled with images of planets. She sewed you space suit footie pajamas.

Alas, that fateful day finally arrived and it was Armstrong not you. You were crushed. You carry these scars with you even today. You don't tell anyone, but when no one is looking you pretend your pedal board are the controls of your space shuttle cockpit. You turn the dials and knobs imagining you are talking to mission control on your way to the dark side of the moon.

Do me! Do me! ;)




Expose chest hair on the weekends. Have done porn, once. Still consider yourself a "star". Would do again if asked. But last time you were single and it was the days of VHS not LTE. It was fast times and you were under the influence. (hint: it was the title to a Clapton song). You used to regret it during your back-to-jesus phase when the kids were 8 and 11. But now your sense of morality and boundaries have, let's say "ripened" a bit." But now you're more in the "pay to play" stage of such things. (crew, girls...) But you still think about it. But this time someone below you at work is waiting for you to slip up and has enough virtual tendrils into you so that he would catch this and send it up to Allentown and you'd be on the curb. Because now you're the local face of the company. The competition wouldn't go public, but all your big contracts would see it in their email. And about 80 percent would never get back to you again. The other 20 would reply with a link of their own. The kids are out of school and the wife is still 3 times better a person than you deserve, even though you're drifting apart... sheesh, these things write themselves... Does nobody else see this?!?!
