    Elon is an interesting fellow. I enjoy his droll sense of humor and intelligence.

    A portion of the talk focuses of twitter in the first half. The rest is about Tesla and Elon himself.

    Ahh, the smell of napalm in the morning of an apocalypse now.

    Congresscritters getting mouthy about war. Yeah, shocking.

    Will keep this post brief because humor works best in short bursts.

    On Easter Sunday, bellicosity has arisen.

    Rep. Adam Kinzinger, an ultra-hawk who has been one of the biggest proponents for a no-fly zone, signaled he favored sending troops in a tweet on Sunday...

    “It’s time to understand that Ukraine must win… and negotiation is not in the cards at the moment,” Kinzinger wrote. “Our generations are getting a lesson that our grandparents understood: the only way to defeat evil is to destroy it.”


    I love the use of "we" from the critter below. Love it for the irony.

    Sen. Chris Coons (D-DE) signaled that he wants the US to send troops into Ukraine to fight Russia in an interview on Sunday. When pressed about the issue, Coons said Russian President Vladimir Putin “will only stop when we stop him.”
    When it comes to warmaking (D) and (R) are interchangable, IMO

    Here is the link for the article. My advice is, save your time and skip it.

    What does an ampaholic post into a thread like this????

    Since I participate in Aragorn's Music Gear thread I might have found a link-type video.

    It is a really good amp tech giving his opinion and fixes for modern design amps. The kinds of amps we see in Anderton's videos.

    This is part one.

    From my observers seat, half of Scandanavia is entertaining a very perilous idea.

    But, what does an American know?

    Interview with Jimmy Thomas

    and Musician)


    "Jimmy Thomas (January 20, 1939 – April 25, 2022) was an American soul singer and songwriter.

    He was best known as a vocalist for Ike Turner. Thomas joined Turner's Kings of Rhythm in 1958, and remained with the band when the Ike & Tina Turner Revue was formed in 1960. He released solo singles on Turner's labels Sue, Sputnik, and Sonja Records. After his departure from Turner, Thomas continued recording as a solo artist, eventually relocating to London.

    And for our members and visitors who aren't aware, Jimmy was also the husband of our member and former moderator Kathy. She used to share several samples of Jimmy's newest songs with me. Jimmy had a very recognizable style and sound, in which he mixed 1960s/1970s-style influences with more modern instrumentation and production techniques.

    We wish Kathy and her family a lot of strength in these hard times.

    I will do my best to share a meaningful goal reached in my in my nascent amp build/design aspirations.

    I built a Class A (1 power tube) bass amp. I auditioned it this past Tuesday at our weekly jam session and it sounded better than hoped. It uses a 'no tone control' approach, like a fender 5F1 Champ circuit. However, I voiced it for bass by increasing the values of certain capacitors. I wanted only enough bass frequency for a four string bass. That frequency floor is 40 hertz. I would have used larger capacitors for a 5 string bass or piano. This online tool shows how the frequency bottom can be calculated. https://www.ampbooks.com/mobile/ampl...or/calculator/

    Anyway, the bottom end was full and tight with a naturally punchy midrange and treble balanced with the other frequencies because of no tone control. I liked that ALOT. My Ibanez bass has three way active equalization on board that I did not need, or want, to use.

    My build was a a build experiment that worked. I have ordered a new bigger chassis and a power supply for a dedicated build and return my Champ back to being a vintage style hand wired, point to point tone machine.

    More to this tale but...........not this day.
