RAIN LIKELY FOR TB ATLANTA!

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by Hambone, Sep 12, 2002.


  1. Absolutely unfriggin' believable as it sounds, the weatherman has put about an 80% chance of rain on Sunday! Seems a little tropical disturbance in the eastern Gulf of Mexico might meet up with a cool front and put some moisture where it's needed most - finally! We should probably take some credit for this.

    This could easily put the kibash on the outdoor festival but won't deter the indoor revelry. Saturday will be the telling day.

    ...hmm....Lord Only in an indoor venue...

    :eek:


    ...Hammy's Happy Hacienda may never recover!!!

    ;)
     
  4. Yeah, I seriously doubt that we could handle such a large amount if equipment anywhere inside.

    Like I said though, Saturday we'll know more.

    It figures. We haven't had any rain in at least two weeks.

    if it's looking like rain, we won't plan on playing. there's no room in there for all our stuff, and besides, the primary function for these things is to get together and talk about basses, not laugh at me attempting to play. :D

    you don't have to necessarily wait, true, but it really is funnier in person.

    I agree with this sentiment. And, I speak from experience. :p ;)

    We can do a duet--you on your uberthick7 string fretless and me on my doubled 8 string fretless.

    Working title: "Duet with Microtonaltiy." :eek:

    I think it would have more effect if JT used the doubleneck....



    Oh, and a subtitle for the composition (using the term loosely): "Intonation schmintonation". :p

    :D

    i'm not sure - my wife might have to work on saturday all day, so we might not even go. ironic, huh? since it was my idea and all. :rolleyes: it's a bit of a haul to go over to hammy's side of town for me. something downtown might be a better sell - central for everybody. who all wants to go?
