1. The Gear Page is run by musicians for musicians. We listen, we learn and if we misstep we are not afraid to do the right thing. We proposed some changes to the Emporiums. Based on feedback from members, we have decided to not go ahead with those changes. However, it has also highlighted that we need some community input into what is working and what is not working for members here. Primarily focused on the Emporiums, we'd like input on your thoughts about TGP and how things work in the Emporiums for you and how you'd improve them. The discussion thread on the is here!

    This kind of stuff pisses me off. This guy gets access to these musicians and basically wastes their time trying to make funny.

    This. Completely unfunny and disrespectful of someone's time (unless they were in on it, which did not seem likely)

    You’re serious? :)

    She’s a 23 yo woman... in show business.

    The attention is how she earns a living.

    The first “Thank You” in her acceptance speech last night, was to her fans.

    I bought her album and her EP. And watched her vids numerous times.

    You’re just silly! :D

    And she was nominated for two Grammys...

    And left with two of them.

    Which kinda says everything you need to know about the Grammys right? Kind of the theme a lot of guys are talking about in this thread (and the Grammy thread). Tell me I'm wrong about her voice.
    Buddy Guy earns a living seeking attention too. But you don't get Blues guys posting pictures of his root in Blues forums -- not even gay guys.

    I guess you were too naive to notice her name and picture in the OP.

    They call that “click bait”.

    This one got 1.6 billion “clicks”.

    Speaking of other words that end with something that sounds like "bait" it would appear that you are less interested in her music and more interested in mastering your domain?

    Case in point --- I thought Brandi Carlile's Grammy performance was amazing - she's almost 40 years old, didn't show a lick of skin, and performed about as live and raw as it gets. In a more guns less butter world I'd take Brandi any day of the week.

    I heard Dua Lipa before I even knew what she looked like.

    She didn’t sound like anybody else.

    So I checked for her.

    And what is it you called them? Boobies?

    They’re actually kinda small.

    I like her voice, and her attitude.

    Yep. TGP is the punchline of this video.

    Ya -- but that's not actually true. We could go back through your post history and the board is replete with you posting pictures and basically saying "hubba hubba" every time you mention her name - her attractiveness to you is no small measure of why you are interested in her. IIRC it was also you that posted in a thread a whole bunch of other nubiles (apologies if I'm not remembering correctly) that basically similarly focused on the more titillating aspects of the performers in question... Let's not make the issue about relative morality though - instead of just about fact -- you know who you are and what makes you tick --- this stuff makes you tick -- it's your jam -- it twitches your fiddle stick so to speak. And yes - you have been so conspicuous in the prolific nature in which you post about her at TGP that people have actually legitimately wondered if you were repping her in some way.... those are facts yes.

    I find her musically lacking -- Objectively - vocally she's got nothing on a Gaga or a Morissette or a Jennifer Hudson --- She doesn't touch on a Winehouse or an Adele.... She sits somewhere in the J-Lo territory - maybe slightly above - and at best she could aspire to Nelly Furtado but that's about it.

    I think your obsessed with me.

    I don’t ever recall your handle or icon.
    But yes... Dua is a beautiful woman, legs to die for I’m sure a lot of women would say.


    Amy Winehouse, Adele, Christina Aguilera, Carrie Underwood and Alicia Keys have something in common.

    They were all Grammy Award winners of Best New Artist.

    Dua Lipa has just joined a very fine group of female vocalists.

    Just be intellectually honest when you post instead of hiding behind fallacy....

    You have an ignore feature.

    Use it.

    I made it to 1:45

    TC Electronics did a really terrible video of Reeves Gabrels live rig for The Cure. They asked about the 3 TC pedals on his board & pretty much ignored the rest of his setup.

    I don't ignore people I disagree with -- and I rather enjoy some of your posits -- I just hope you'd be more consistently honest when people call you out on the Dua worship. Like come on -- I've got buddies who were obsessed with Pamela Anderson -- tried to argue that she was a great actress and that's why they liked her.... You are just like (and might actually be) one of my buddies. In my world we call people on their bullsh*t - especially our friends. You got a thing for the girl --- be consistently honest about it and you'd get less flack and less side-eye. We good?

    I don’t remember Pam winning any Oscars or Emmys.

    You’re entitled to not like whoever.

    But I’m not miss Lipa’s only fan.

    She bested 7 other artists for the Best New award.

    And I couldn’t have argued any one of them didn’t deserve it as well.

    She’s a worldwide force... even had #1’s in Saudi Arabia and Taiwan.

    Man, no-one’s arguing her voice or her artistry.

    They’re trying to tell you that posting these kind of pictures on a guitar player’s rig rundown because he plays for a hot singer is distasteful and inappropriate.

    I leave it at that. You can drag a horse to water, but you can’t teach ‘em taste.

    Oh and also, the Grammys are not the worlds arbiter of taste.

    Good show if you can get it but as in any award there’s at least 50% politics that go into the decision.

    Ignore my posts.

    You hit the button... you don’t see them.

    Without the “hot” singer...

    Those guys are you and me.

    Right here.
