    It's Saturday night (tomorrow) and you'll be on stage during the Rapture. You better have your favorite bass in hand. Which will it be? :rolleyes:

    Got a wedding. I'll either float up to heaven with my 62 Jazz, or burn in hell with it. Either way, it's not leaving my side :)

    2008 Am Std P Bass. I sure hope the T-I flats have lived good lives so they are taken, too.

    By the way, is this a single event or does it roll with the time zones like the celebration of New Years? I have heard it is at 6 pm, but is that 6 pm everywhere (rolling with the time zones) or is it at 6 pm in one particular time zone and at different corresponding times elsewhere in the world? If so, which time zone gets the 6 pm rapture?

    Here are a few tips to help you get through this with as little grief as possible:

    1) Make an effort to avoid operating heavy machinery, flying planes, or be part of a human pyramid for being raptured during these activities would harm those who were left behind.

    2) Pack a lunch. The journey to the heavens may be long and involve steep hills. It would be in poor taste to be cranky upon arriving at the pearly gates and snap at Saint Peter.

    3) Wear clean underwear. Keep in mind, your clothes will be left behind and you want to leave a positive impression of those who were raptured.

    4) Water your lawns on the 20th. Just because you have been raptured doesn’t mean you can be wasteful and leave your water running for all of eternity!

    5) Feel free to make all of your dentist appointments on the 22nd; the best excuse in the world is being raptured.

    6) Get naked to improve your 'lift'. If you haven't been VERY good you might not have enough lift to rise into the air.

    7) Stay outside, preferably on a hilltop. That way you won't bump into the ceiling or buildings when you start to rise into the air.

    8) Grease up. It's possible that a non-Christian might try to grab you to hitch a ride to heaven. You need to be very slippery to stop that.

    9) Prayer-power can speed your way to heaven. Remember to close your eyes and pray like mad when you start to rise.

    10) Remember to use the bathroom before you rise. It isn't decent to get caught short while rising into the air.

    11) Write CHRISTIAN on your forehead in black felt-tip pen. The holy ghost will be very busy. Do what you can to help him avoid mistakes.

    I will be in the studio recording a demo, Playing "Black" (Dirnt P bass) or "Yeller" (Franken-fender). If the world falls into chaos, I hope to start looting and working on My "Madmax" car immediatly upon completion of the recording.

    Constant state of flux
    Gonna be rockin' either a Stingray or a Pedulla. Really depends on what song and set during which the Lord decides to take me. Unfortunately, I don't have a Pedulla Rapture, seems like the ultimate bass for the day...

    I just got word that my shorty Squire Jag came in. I will be picking it up tomorrow AM and the playing the stuffing out of it the rest of the day. That will probably be the one.

    Tomorrow night is the public debut of my "new" modded MIM Jazz(Allparts maple P neck)!!! While it's a little on the heavy side, it has plenty of mojo to make up for it. My main stage bass has been my trusty MIM 'burst P, but the Jazz is now my new "go to" bass. I have barely played any of the others since I got it home. If the Good Lord wants me, it'll be the one in my hands!!! :bassist:
  16. I'll be at a Whitlow's On Wilson playing my SSD Czech 4-string through my Mesa Basis M-2000 and Genz Benz UB 212. I sure hope my rig and pedal board make the trip along with my bass- wherever I end up going!
