    I wish you had gone through with the deal. You could have asked her why nearly all Slavic women's first names end with the letter "a."

    This^. This^. This a thousand times. The locals are part of a community. The onlines, for the most part, are faceless corporate...

    So Arnold and Morgan is gone; a shame. When I was there, summer of 1970, there was no bass room and no bench, but everything was on the...

  9. GretschWretch replied to the thread I shimmed my neck (and the sound changed).

    No, it isn't; and it won't be because it can't be. So far nobody has addressed the fact than a DB just moves the air differently than...
