A Landmark

This week I got a pedal in a trade. It was a trade I did not want to make; because I needed the cash, and we all know what happens when I trade for something I plan to sell because I need the cash. Ya, not so much selling happens; or cash. Unless it sounds bad. But this week I heard an amazing pedal. And I now own it. It is the best I have ever heard of its kind. And you know what? I’m going to sell it. A momentous day indeed. So those of you who think I’ve totally jumped off of the cliff……nope. I’m hanging onto the edge for dear life…kind of like little boy Captain Kirk when he leaped out of the car as it was going over the cliff…you know…that one realistic part? (Honestly, the new Star Trek was much better than I expected. It had its ‘oh sweet mercy, please stop talking’ moments, but overall, it was a very decent action flick. Except for Eric Bana. Yikes, he is bad. The whole time I’m going, ‘That alien is a horrible actor.’ And then when I saw the end credits it was like, ‘Ah.’ Anyone else can’t help but laugh when the previews for ‘Time Traveler’s Wife’ come on, you see Eric Bana trying desperately to not suck, and Lifehouse sings, ‘I’m falling apart…’? I just can’t help it.)

So yes, there is hope for me. But that pedal is amazing. Seriously…when Coldplay calls…I’m buying it. And a lot of other stuff. Hey, don’t laugh. Johnny Buckland can’t live forever! Probably shouldn’t say stuff like that.

And feel free to guess the pedal of which this landmark has given homage. (Wow, that sentence didn’t work. Sorry, I’m in the middle of a move, amongst many other things, and due to those things cluttering my head, I fear my posts are making even less sense than usual…like Eric Bana’s acting choices…oh. That just happened.) Suffice to say, I’m not over the edge just yet. (Mmmmm…Edge.)

Eric Bana
(There is no argument that you can possibly make to convince me this isn’t the worst acting performance in history. Well, at least no argument that doesn’t include Orlando Bloom.)

Splendid.

  1. “There is no argument that you can possibly make to convince me this isn’t the worst acting performance in history. Well, at least no argument that doesn’t include Orlando Bloom.”

    So you haven’t seen “The Jazz Singer” (1980) then?

  2. I think this is a ploy to trick us into thinking that you’re actually sane. There’s no way you would have done that, and I find the lack of details around the pedal peculiar.

  3. Would it be the Eric Bana Vocal Resonator with the double-whammy-backstop post-reverb gated delay-over-in-miami?

    (reading too much karl gives rise to writing like karl.)

  4. Whoa, Jason Ratliff got it! That was an incredible guess bro, considering how many pedals are in existence! Props. :)

    Dan–possibly in the future, it will be that pedal. haha

    Ben–if only! :)

    Rhoy–strike. Strike, true. :)

    Scott–you’ve got an extremely valid argument there. lol

    Mark–that is a very good point! And I probably will, too. hehehe

    Colty–lol Actually, I didn’t want to reveal it until my e-bay auction for it had ended, as I never want this blog to become just another selling platform. And no, I’m probably still pretty un-sane when it comes to gear. hehehe

    Chris–lol Yes! That’s it! ;)

    Keith–haha Nope, but awesome guess!

    Rhoy–sorry bro!! I’m up playing at a church retreat right now, and I’ve got no internet. So I just drove down the mountain during some downtime so I can communicate with some church people, and figured I’d check the blog. :) This was a terrible post for me to do that! hehe
