Shocked 

Yes folks, IT'S CHARLIE'S WORLD!!!

And you're invited to be in on it as it happens

Today in Charlie's world, Charlie woke up to a straaange sound...  "b'buk, b'buk. b'buk"   What's that?   Shocked    *looks around quick*  Oh, it's nothing. It's just my cat puking on my 80 dollar comforter. "Get off there!!"   Ok, well I'm awake now. Guess it's time for coffee. Would you like to be my neighbor?  *doesn't put on a gay cardigan and child molester type slippers, to shuffle off towards kitchen*

*bang* *klang*  er, me toast, juice, sausages...marmalade (i like marmalade..)  Ah here it is!  100% republican approved, 2 dollars a jar, guaranteed to smell and taste like an old tire COFFEE *snorts a little*   Laughing   yay  

a good breakfast is so important  

 Cool

If you need to learn how to post a you tube, go here

You can also learn how to center things, make different sizes of text etc, there.

Also, if you just look up, when you're typing in the text box to make a post, and rest your cursor on each of the icons you see, you'll find a lot of easy things you can do to make your posts better.....post you tubes, post pictures, center text, create a link etc etc

All this stuff is explained in a thread called "How To Use BB/Code", which is located in the Welcome Section (in the "Info You Might Need" forum).  If you can't find something, you haven't looked enough. Please honor my hard efforts by looking sufficiently. Everything you need to know is there  - and hey, if it really isn't, just ask, and I'll write another tutorial for ya.

Peace on you!   Shocked 

Aw, I'm just kiddin'

K, I'm buying music equipment.

I'm getting it from zZounds.com

Here's the list:

A Shure SM58s mic with stand and cables
A Fishman loudbox practice amp, with channels for voice and acoustic guitar (this I'll use for vocals, just at home)
A 100w Marshall halfstack
A decent pickup for my acoustic
Harmonicas and neck holder
strings
cords and cables
electric guitar (still haven't settled on what kind yet..if money were no object, it'd be a gibson les paul signature t, and i'd want to see also the 5,000 les paul that actually has f holes in it...but probably the signature t which i'd buy without even trying it after listening to it being played...thing of beauty $2400. I wont be getting one. I'll be spending more like 700 or 800. sucks to be poor eh? Rich people buy their kids signature t's with 400 dollar auto tuners as starter guitars. Yes, they do. No, they do. You didn't know that? Oh yea.

so that's the list

if anyone wants to buy me a signature t, my birthday is in june

 Very Happy (ok, I'm just kiddin..its in may!!!! LOL

wtf, yea yea

so this is all gonna cost me for a poor man's rig...2200

(yes, it's true, the marshall is solid state *ducks*)

(it's still a marshall though and has nice modern touches you dont get on the tube amp..there are those who'd argue the solid state is better..... Shocked  oh ok, i'm not one of them

anyone who'd like to BUY me a tube marshall out of pity, can send it to

Charlie Fiftywatts
main south
usa

(please dont forget to bring the signature t at the same time) 

cheers

Had a great experience buying from zZounds.com I payed the best price, and no tax, no shipping & handling (even though what I ordered weighed 140 pounds and was shipped overnight) (yes, overnight!  It was cool. I tracked its journey from new jersey to new york, then connecticut, then northboro, then onto a final delivery truck...I ordered this stuff at noon one day, they loaded it by 6 pm, and drove all night and got it here by noon the next day. I couldn't be happier. It all arrived in great shape. Nothing is a chinese copy or damaged. I'll definitely shop at zZounds again

*puts endorsement fee away*  




When I've got this order payed off, come August 1, I can order an electric guitar (I'm playing a loaner right now), a pickup for my acoustic (that fishman loudbox amp is just made for that, and don't let its small size fool you, it cranks and sounds beautiful), some harps and a neck holder, some better cables (mogami, perhaps?) and then I'm all set to go.

total investment for a rig: about 2,000.00

for a guitar, i'm assembling a list of suspects (models to try out)
all the ones that are the most wantable cost the most i notice
but i think i could get happy with even just a 500 dollar epiphone les paul plus top pro from zounds

this:



for the price, i think it sounds great both clean and dirty and would be a good match for the marshall amp. it'd make a good starter guitar anyway, i could trade up later.

i've been drooling over much more expensive models.

look at what this guy is playing (NOT THE FIRST GUY, SEE AT  2:20):



will i ever play like that?

no, not my style.

makes me feel like that amp is a bit wasted on me though, but..hey i play a different kind of thing than that.   Ain't that kid a hot guitar player though?  I bet he has a hard time getting chicks (NOT!)


And then there's THIS GUITAR (I'd buy this in an instant if i just had the cash...mm...the Gibson Les Paul Signature T with the $400 "MIN-E TUNE" upgrade (SEE THAT!!! ..the fucking thing tunes itself!  I WANT THAT!   *drools a little and has to be given some more medication by his nurse* "there, there Charlie"

http://www2.gibson.com/Products/Electric-Guitars/Les-Paul/Gibson-USA/Les-Paul-Signature-T.aspx

yea, yea, so I'll get a used guitar for a max of 700 dollars in the end, cause that's what poor guys do, right?  right  ..hey, maybe i'll find something really cool, craigslist is full of folks trying to unload valuable stuff because they have to...

Listen to that Epi Plus Top Pro youtube again. Really listen to it.

He gets it to sound just like Bachman Turner Overdrive.
 Cool 

You're like  a SLEDGEHAMMER, BABE!!!

You been hittin' on my mind. *unintelligible rock n roll screaming*...

always hittin' from behind...


K, THIS IS WHAT IT IS: I AM NOT A LEAD GUITAR PLAYER.

I HAVE A MARSHALL BAD BOY AMP, YEA, I DO.

BUT I AM NOT YNGWIE MALMSTEEN OR EDDIE VAN HALEN.

I JUST PLAY RHYTHM, ENOUGH TO WRITE SONGS.

IF THE AMP TAKES OVER AND MAKES THINGS BETTER, HEY THAT'S COOL.

* gets marker and writes "11" on the volume knob now*

Okay, for those who don't get it and the place seems complicated,
I'll say this one more time. All you gotta' do is when you
get here, that first page you're on, that's the "home page". Scroll
down it slowly, clicking on each and every thing you see till you
get all the way to the bottom. NOW you'll know what everything
is, and you'll see it's simple.

So now you can just come here, post your inanities, and comment
on the blithering renderings of others. Make yourself a blog (this is
mine. make one for you. right in this section, yes.)* And you can post
in it about what's going on in your life,  or about things that seem
profound to you, or tell us stories. or just rant and provide
photographic evidence even. Entertain us. We want to know you!

So that's your blog. You post there regularly.

Then you go to the music section (if you're so inclined)
and join in the conversation there.

Or if you see a news item that bugs you today, and you want
to talk about it, post it! (there's a news discussion section).

There's a section called "Just For Fun", you could even start a game there.

If you don't know where to put something, hey, why not put it in the
section called "I didn't know where to put this".

Point is: this is a forum - a place where people post things to talk about. So join in!

Unleash that bipolar within, give us your brilliant insights,
let out that psychotic rant you've been saving up,
hoping eventually they'd name a day after you -
 and we will all be duly edified.










* To start a blog, click "Yer Blogs" at the home
page, then click "new topic" (as seen here):

Okay, I had an issue with the Fishman Loudbox amp.
Traded it for this though. Sweet. Problem solved.

Again, zZounds.com financed it free, charged no tax, no
shipping and handling, they delivered it in ONE DAY (drove all
night from new jersey), charged me the cheapest price possible
for it (they "price guarantee"; if I see this elsewhere cheaper,
even if it's a sale price, even if it's after I already bought from
zounds, they will match that cheaper price). And if you buy from
them and need to return something, you have 45 days to do
so..shipping is free if returning it because of defect or shipping
damage...replacement gets sent right away. Great site to do
business with. Couldn't be happier. Who needs stores anymore?

Re: Charlie's World

Post by Charlie FiftyWatts on Tue Apr 15, 2014 5:01 pm



I really should take a decent picture of it, but i shot these when i was unboxing it...

still in the box...




not out of the case yet the first time...



ain't she sweet....






Well, I peeled all the stickers off, inspected it, tuned it up and played it
- and I must say I couldn't be happier. I struggled with what guitar to
buy for weeks, and as it turns out I got the right one. This sucker has
pull pots that split the coils, so in clean mode (on the amp) it can sound
really really good "acoustically". I had looked and looked for a guitar
that could do that. Almost bought the Epiphone Ultra III because it
comes with a 3rd pickup, an acoustic pickup, you can switch to and
oh boy that sucker can sound great clean too. I swear I could hear
bronze strings listening to it. But that model has a design flaw (a bad
fret buzz problem) - so i took a chance on this les paul 'plus top pro'
guitar with the split coil feature and oh yea!!  I did good  Very Happy 

Basically, what I got was a Les Paul guitar,
to go with my Marshall amp. This thing is
hot, and sounds very much the same as the
more expensive GIBSON Les Paul.
(Epiphones are a line of less expensive
guitars that Gibson sells, so that guys
who DON'T have 3 grand to spend
on a decent axe can still get one. And
I think they do a great job providing
instruments you can be happy and
proud to have. My first guitar was an
Epiphone (an acoustic with an electric
pickup. I played it through a fuzz box,
so I could switch from clean to fuzz,
and I just loved that thing. I always felt
good about saying "it's an epiphone".
To me that name means it's a damn
nice guitar, so I'm staying brand loyal.

Don't get me wrong, I did look at the GIBSON
Les Pauls first - and may I just say.."wow".
If I had the $2,500.00 to spend on just a guitar,
I would. The 2014 Gibson Les Pauls actually tune
themselves even (you push a button, strum twice,
its tuned. It turns the pegs itself!! Damn.)
But I'm happy with this. It looks like my guitar.
It feels like my guitar. It's...my guitar!

Hmm..haven't posted since April of 2014. Well. Perhaps I'll post more pics of the gear I've been amassing. There's a hollow body electric with Gibson P90's and a whammy I just got, a full pedal board and Wah,  real Gibson bass, electronic drum kit, 16-track recorder, and a full set of harmonicas. That oughta' be enough stuff to write songs and record all the parts myself for a while. (hey, why not, people suck, I don't need any people. I got a toilet. What do I need you for?).

Though I suppose if some assholes started signing up and posting here, I might come and tell jokes and post shit too, but ..no one comes.  I started this site just for some close music friends to post facebook like updates, and start threads for discussion and to express themselves any creative way they saw fit (there's really no rules here)(you can even spout Republicrapola and I don't care

*starts singin' Jimmy Crack Corn*..

"Republicrapola, and I don't care!  
Pitch corrected hip hop, and I don't care!!  
No more democracy or money, and  
- like an idiot X'er  or the niggerfied tone-deaf millenials - I DON'T CARE!!!!!!!!!" ....
 Shocked  oops.
Anyway...

Re: Charlie's World

Post by Charlie FiftyWatts on Sun Mar 06, 2016 3:54 pm


It's taking me three full years...of going nowhere, having nothing and eating like a slum-dweller, just to SAVE EVERY POSSIBLE NICKEL so I can get this music equipment.

I wanted to do music again (I guess). Though I have ill health, no family, few friends -and none with any ability to do anything, or even get what I'm about.  And I'm getting old.

The goal was to write and record music, and maybe go play a solo gig to get payed, or even start a band of some kind, but
it's hard to be in a hurry to be getting on with anything when you have to wait three years to complete getting the stuff you need,  SO THAT YOU CAN get on with anything.  

Not to be easily defeated though, I've been waiting it out and studying modern equipment end to end all this time. Shit, I actually know my stuff now. A lot of what I've learned just makes me heart sick though...

Vocoders.  Disney-Barbie Nigger Noise being produced by digital effects programs switched on by people who can neither hear what music sounds like nor sing on pitch. Fuck. I hate everyone younger than me. And I hate everyone else too. 99% of people are utterly stupid, and the other 1% are valueless shitheads taking advantage. (If you doubt that, check out what condition YOUR country is in and try to find anyone doing anything about it (other than getting tattoos and pygmy rings and listening to the nigger noise too "because everyone else does"). And look at Yahoo news. SEE the hideous garbagy reality show which is our "democratic process", with the masses of 85 IQ IDIOTS voting for Republicans because they think it's team sports. 

DUMMIES!  SIGHTLESS DUMMIES, PARROTING FOR CONFORMITY!!

You know, an asteroid obliterating all human life would be doing the rest of the universe a favor.

But.. yes, I suffered to get an inexpensive though usable set of music equipment, so I can go back to songwriting, record all the parts myself, and maybe do open mics and then possibly solo gigs, or even a band.  

And I've built websites for years, and published six different magazines I produced myself.  So I do know how to do stuff. (Though I found, unless I'm posting "I'm a nigger, they're a nigger, wouldn't you like to be a nigger too?", I'll get received as if I must be nuts, because I'd prefer music to noise, and I won't parrot unquestioned garbage like everyone else is doing.  Rolling Eyes    

And if I do say people are IDIOTS who take no responsibility for their own stuff - BECAUSE IT'S TRUE - well, why even point it out? They're ALL STUPID. Can you tell a retard a thought that takes someone intelligent to understand?  

There are 6.4 million retards in America, and only 170,000 of them are institutionalized, the rest are going about freely - driving, voting, causing things to be considered 'popular'. (Does that explain a few things?) And most of the rest of the 330 million lame assholes in America are "average IQ", which is abysmally stupid too. And you can't help dumb dumbs. You can't explain what's awful to them. They're incapable of getting it. They're incapable of anything more than basic monkey behavior. (Oh come on, they even GRUNT like monkeys while they obediently consume the TV shows they've been instructed to "like".) And then they go off and parrot whatever they heard, much to the delight of those who need their propaganda believed. And they even follow that by congratulating themselves for being smart and having their own mind. Jesus Christ! *pukes a little*

Now..99% of everyone is some degree of tone deaf, and while we knew this all along and accepted the sad reality that if you're a music artist, the people you play the music FOR can't even hear what it sounds like (which is why "Hip Hop" and vocoded Disney CRAP is "liked" *FROWN*  by millions, because they can't hear if it's good or not, they just take their cue from everyone else, and "like" it because they don't want to be excluded from being part of the rest of THE LEMMINGS. And I knew this long ago, and had to accept it. But did you know that 98% of people can't tell if something LOOKS good or not either?  AND they can't tell if an IDEA is okay?

     
PEOPLE ARE IMBECILES! ALL OF THEM!  THEY'RE PERCEPTIONLESS, AND THEY JUST PARROT TO GET BY.
 

So what CAN I do with this music I play?  What?

Gather some brainless white niggers, with their underwear hanging out, and play actual music for them, so they can go "DUUUH...THAT doesn't sound like black guys JUNGLE CHANTING and trying to seem intimidating to me! D'UUUUUUUUUH. And where's the side-effect tone from the vocoder? *dazed look* Is that supposed to be singing? *confused* Geez, its musical even. Don't you play anything awful  like we "like"???  *drool* *pull pants down below ass cheeks, while making nigger gestures* And if that's music, where's the slutty lesbian frigging herself for the audience and sniffing people's asses and giving a blow up doll a blow job, huh? THAT'S MUSIC. Geez. yo yo nig nog. You old people don't know anything. You're not wise at all. Not like us 14 year-olds. Sheesh! I mean LOOK at the old fogey, he's playing a real guitar!!! BWAAAA HA HA HA!!!  Get with it, POPS THE CRACKER!! You're supposed to use one of THESE to make "music" now!...




Shocked

Thanks Pete. She's hot!

It must be tough to be a girl musician. Look at her, having to hold all that feminine nonsense together, while already having to be fully focused on keeping the music juggling. She gets it done though.

If you look her up on you tube, she's quite the guitarist! ..and blues musician. She even plays a gasoline can guitar sometimes, and sings like an old black man from Mississippi. Very Happy  It's pretty hip.

________________________________________

Now for those of you who may be stopping by to peek...no, I am not "a racist". Blacks invented every great music form of the twentieth century (jazz, blues, rock n roll, funk, motown, soul, R & B, all that). But when music moved from radio to video TV, instead of these guys starting their own channel because they felt they weren't being represented on "MTV".. (Well of course they weren't. Rap was TOTAL SHIT. Oh you disagree? What's it like being deaf then?). So there was one station and instead of peoples with other tastes and musical interests starting competing Music Video Channels, they whined like babies "Wah! MTV won't play our stupid noise!! We're gonna hire lawyers!!!!" WAH!!!

And what did the music "industry" do?  They let them have the whole thing. No more white culture at all. A generation of tone deaf wigger kids was spawned, and then another...
Now, this is just history, and nothing more.
But when someone at a forum recently asked a question which this was the answer to, and I provided it, I was told "we have rules against anyone not liking what everyone else (think facebook:) likes.

*FROWN*  

So I left the perceptionless morons to their conformity and parroting.


Brainless wastes of oxygen.


It's "racist" to cite history?  Is it?

You know what, for decades I never ever said "the n word" (even though THEY DO) (oh hell, they GREET each other with it! .."Hey nigger. How you niggers doing?"). But then they commandeered the entire music industry and entirely got rid of any signs of white music, white culture. Suddenly I'm FORCED to listen to white kids saying "yo" and wearing their pants half way down LIKE BRAINLESS JACKASSES. Well you know what? ENOUGH!! This stupid NOISE they refer to as rap or hip hop or nigger (why don't they call it what it is? Stupid noise for tone deaf kiddies to obediently "like", because everyone else is? *FROWN*), this IDIOT NOISE has been abusing ears for 26 years now! ENOUGH!!!!!!!!!!

                ENOUGH OF THE ASININE NIGGER NOISE!!!!!!!!!!

And again, I'm not "racist", though your tiny mind has been conditioned to gasp if you hear truth being spoken OUT LOUD. I was part of the 70's when we noticed there was a segment (or several actually) of society which wasn't getting a fair shake, getting in on life, so we started quotas and busing and everything we could think of to even out the playing field and let 'em in. Hell WE even elected one of them president! So don't call me a fucking racist, for citing history! --> The blacks were unhappy MTV wouldn't play their shitty stupid rap, so they threatened legal action against MTV instead of starting a competing Music Video Channel (->Think about it: How many stations did radio have? ONE??? Of course not!! SO WHY DIDN'T MTV JUST TELL THEM "LOOK, GET YOUR OWN YOU CRY BABY ASSHOLES!!"  and slam the door in their whiny idiot faces?
Why?

Well, the music industry has been an asshole endeavor for asshole reasons ever since it was born (it came out of an asshole), so don't question why what they do is shit.

(clever ain't I?)

But yea I got told off at some asinine music forum for stating that they threatened legal action instead of starting their own channel and the result was they took our cultural outlet and existence away and replaced it with theirs. ASSHOLES.


So there ya go.
I vented. And no one will ever know.

Really. Iit doesn't matter what I write here. NO ONE ever comes.

I make beautiful websites (lots of them), and I've self produced six magazines, all funny and full of interesting bits for easy digestion, and all perfectly collated...and in all that, I really don't know how to get people to come - because unless you have a few million for advertising, and a business model to pay for it, it's actually close to impossible (with rare exceptions where someone gets notoriety from press attention somehow, or "makes a buzz" online. But I never pulled it off. There's a graveyard of my work out there, somewhere, unseen in cyber space...

Want to see what kind of a site i could make for a band?

Ha! I'm not showing that. It's a steal-able idea, sorry. (But if you really needed help in that area, I might be forthcoming).

mm..alright I'm gonna go watch Gilligan's Island because if no one looks at Maryann's ass still occasionally, well, you know what happened to the tree that fell and no one heard it? mm.. See ya.

I see we got a new member. The way i figure it, it's either someone from the cat site who got curious, or it could just be a spammer.  Shocked  I do get notified of activity here. I turned your account on and gave you member status. Welcome. If you post, I may post back, and you could bring a friend or two if you thought music, or just a place that apparently has no rules to stifle you, might be interesting. I used to start up forums like this and then post games and such. Meaty discussions could be had too. About life. +/or certainly the music. All that could be done here. If there was interest. But welcome either way! Basketball

The Rock Hall of Fame isn't about Rock legends. It's about whatever makes money. Fuck that. I'll never pay attention to that thing again. "Rap is Rock too"??? NO, IT AIN'T. Get your own, POS.

Update on the Marshall amp, and Epiphone Les Paul I bought:

I had to replace them both. They sucked.

AMP REPLACEMENT: I now have another Fishman (the largest one this time. 180 watts, three speakers). It's a bit small physically, but it's Bose technology, so it kicks ass and projects beautifully and sounds crystal clear, reproducing the full spectrum of sound evenly. I love this amp as much as I hated the solid state Marshall I dumped.

GUITAR REPLACEMENT: The Epiphone Les Paul sounded like garbage. All muddly, like something was wrong. I'd have returned it except it turns out it's supposed to sound like garbage, and tone-deaf dummies imagine that they like it, obediently. Well, I can actually hear, so I was very unhappy with it (not to mention it weighs a jillion pounds for no good reason, and the case they sell you is TRASH!).

So I now have a Casino with real Gibson pickups (P90's) (SINGLE cores).
(Fuck humbuckers. I want to hear something other than a garbled noise, yeesh.)

The difference between Epiphone pickups and real Gibson pickups, is vast. No comparison.

And this Casino I got  is a hollow body that will feed back easily, which I think is sweet. It fits me.
I looked at many semi-hollows for a whole year, before I bought. I had to lose the idea that
the smaller body style looks cooler, while the bigger body style looks jazzy. Because, SO WHAT?
It's about sound, not looks!!! This thing sounds legendary! I hear each individual string, but in
concert with each other, just like you oughta' hear.  And you can get that on any acoustic, but it's
hard to find on an electric. Well, but I searched and researched and with a few painful lessons thrown
in, got my axe.

So...much happier with this rig. And now I'm trying to get a pedal board squared away (that's not cheap or simple)... but I've been getting things like an EVH Flanger, and Phaser, a C9 organ pedal, a cocked wah with an expression pedal, a decent tuner so I don't have to stop and play fuck fuck instead of playing music. I have 3 choices for distortion (fuzz, overdrive or distortion). Octave, swell, delay. It's all waiting on a power supply currently, that can feed it without crippling and/or destroying my pedals electronically (oh yea, I bought a Gator board and power supply initially, and they were happy to sell it to me, even though they must have known it wouldnt work AT ALL. Even a dumb dumb couldn't by fooled by their POS. DON'T BUY GATOR. You want a pedalboard? Get a wide M3 Holeyboard, with a Phoenix power supply (15 taps, all ground isolated, so no no problems with interference like that Gator piece of JUNK!  Jesus, you know, if you don't know what you're doing 100%, they WILL rob you!  I shouldn't be having to replace amps and guitars and pedalboards. Crap, it's like I'm having to buy everything twice!

And oh, forget about "trading" anything to recoup some of your investment. Guitar Center is the only "music store" left, you can physically go to, and they will treat you like a crack addict at the pawn shop because they think you have no where else you can go. Well I'd rather throw my $800 item in the trash and get nothing for it, than let Guitar Center STEAL it from me and laugh after I leave.  FUCK GUITAR CENTER!  You want to buy gear, go there to try things out physically if you need to before you buy, but then go home and order the item from Sweetwater.com. They'll treat you GREAT. Even better than zZounds.com.
