    Anybody else do this?

    Whenever my kids get scared I tell them "Don't fret" and chuckle a little.

    I saw a guy in Walgreens last night with a huge head. My first thought was "He must deal with some serious neck dive."

    I was driving my wife's car yesterday (Trailblazer SS....pretty much a grocery getter with a Corvette engine and tuned suspension) and thought "Man, this engine has a lot of headroom."

    This ever happen to you guys?

    Absolutely! all day long I think about my next bass axe, foot pedal, amp, cab. I'm retired with more time and disposable funds than ever before so everything is done except G.A.S. :thumbsup:

    Not usually. When I first picked up the bass, however, it made me realize that you gotta do your homework, if you want to make progress.

    Not at that level, but thanks for the genuine lol.

    I do however notice Bongo colored cars, and point them out to my wife all the time.

    You see toilet seats wherever you go?
    :wacky:

    (I think they are awesome basses and was only latching onto the awful description used here often to make a joke.)

    That being said, a Tangerine Pearl car would be sweet. drool

    ha! i would say the same thing: they (especially my daughter) would respond "i can't help it" and i would say "well then, fret less." ;)
     
  12. Oh come on! You are just stringing this line along.
    It was flat from the start.
    You must think we are just a bunch of nuts. Or knobs.

    Gotta head out and get active.
    (And don't send me no passive aggressive, hollow rebuttals. If it ain't solid, it will drop on deaf ears)
    I truss this will b the last post, don't count on me comin round to check it. ;)

    (That's 12)

    Not so much bass terms, but audio in general.

    All the time when I'm cooking. Ex. "Hmm... I think this may need a pinch of something in the upper-mids."
    My gf thinks I'm nuts but is used to it by now.

    Some nights it's a struggle to go to sleep. I have songs in my head and I figure out bass lines to them. The fretboard is in my head and I play along, rewind and correct as needed.
    Oh $h**, I just realized I'm nuts officially.

    I just got back from the grocery store... the lines were long, but luckily I got stuck behind a nice b'ass... staying on topic, I was thinking about bass, right before getting in line...
