    That's how Porcupine Tree became a band.

    I've never listened to them. Probably should. I like prog but I tend towards the super wankery type stuff.

    Yep. Basically how tons of gear is. Either people are too stupid to read a manual or inconvenienced by the fact that the knobs are set differently than the pedal beside it. Try explaining to 95% of guitarist that a mesa's tone stack doesn't work like a fender.

    They're one of those bands that have various phases. I find myself jumping back and forth between the the more ambient psych-kinda early stuff and the harder rock stuff and Steven's solo work post-PT. I enjoy them. Not obsessive about them. I'm more of an Opeth fan.

    So, you're saying those Band guys were pretty authentic.

    There's a reason most chainsaws have little stickers on them saying "don't operate near genitals."

    You beat me to it. Was just going to post this. Similar to yourself I'm not real big on post-hiatus Phish. However I thought this stunt was pretty funny.

    Makes it hard to use my Stihl for scale while I'm posting pics to craigslist.

    Happy, but not surprised to report that the DBT show on Sunday was awesome. They played most of my favorite songs. The sound was fantastic, especially all the guitars. I forgot how much all three of those guys can rip on guitar. And Cooley is still one of the coolest dudes on earth. Here are a couple of pics.

    Had no idea they made saws that small. Are they for bonsai arborists?

    It’s weird seeing people want to come to the Shoals and tour the studio. They just in the last decade starting pushing that part of the history here. Before that it was (and still is to a degree) all about Helen Keller.

    Agree that it shouldn't be an issue, but he could have labeled them differently to make it obvious. "HI CUT" and "LO CUT" or similar. Problem solved.

    I think people would get better results from pedals if the knobs weren't labled at all and they just had to listen to see what they did.

    I never thought about it until I watched the Netflix documentary.
