    I was a friends house the other day, we were relaxing and jamming out for a while. After getting bored of just us playing we decided to sit down and watch one of the funniest rock and roll movie ever! SPINAL TAP! With me being distracted by the overly small stone henge, and trying to find our way back stage, i wasnt really paying attention to waht bass the bassist was using.

    I unfortuneately dont have access to the movie, but if memory serves me right i believe he had alembic. Please correct me if i am wrong, this has been bugging me all week.

    Making a big thing out of it would have been a good idea.

    So you're telling me that you feel like a preserved moose when you play on stage?
     
  5. It's such a fine line between stupid, and clever.
     
  6. It's like, how much more black could this be? and the answer is none. None more black

    Simply a two word review. It just says, "S#*& sandwich."

    You can't print that! You can't print that!

    It (Stonehenge) was in danger of being trampled by a dwarf.
     
  14. Didn't they all play bass on Big Bottoms? Three basses all playing the same thing.

    Yes, but the question was what bass the bassist played.

    Brilliant movie!!!


    Well, this piece is called "Lick My Love Pump".


    Here lies David St. Hubbins... and why not?


    Well, I'm sure I'd feel much worse if I weren't under such heavy sedation.
