    Sup y'all, just had a kinda cool story id thought id share:

    I manage a radioshack on the north side of baltimore, just outside of Towson, and a customer came in today looking for some nine volt batteries. I asked whether hed like some longer lasting ones etc etc etc and we got to talking and he's using it for his wireless guitar system. I ask what kind of guitar he's playing and he says a "music man, ya know, sterling," and I was like "oh you're a bassist." After the affirmative reply I asked about whether hed played the bongo and he said no so I continued to espouse about its greatness at considerable length.

    The conversation continued and we talked about the new Metro line, he shocked me with a vast knowledge about great, lesser known (to nonbass folk) bassists, even naming the album of Manring's purple haze cover. So we kept talking and I asked him whether he ever visited talkbass, and, to my surprise, he said yes. So, a lurker among us and this lurker here had a random encounter in an out of the way store in maryland.

    thought it was cool.

    Funny thing, I though this was gonna be:

    "I was in a Radio Shack in Staten Island & I saw a guy that looks alot like Nino-Brown. Damn guy used to own a Sterling & he has a Metro."

    I was at my local Radio Shack today picking up wire & soldering iron tips.
