All this means is that one can clean their walls with a food-grade salt.  Sodium and Chloride are extremely poisonous, but no one can live without them.  Trisodium Phosphate is an anti-oxidant. 

It seems that everyday, there is something that disappoints me.  Has no one taken chemistry?  It’s a beautiful science. It’s explains what everything around you is made from.

Remember when I got drunk on my birthday and fell off some stairs in New Orleans and just about broke my ankle and the had to drive myself all the way back to Austin with that broken ankle alone, because my boyfriend with whom I should have broken up with by then had decided not to come with me? And I couldn’t listen to my own music or podcasts or anything because my phone had gotten lost while I was drunk and falling off of things? And I was so, so sad and so hungover and then somewhere between Baton Rouge and Port Charles I heard this on the radio, and it was the only thing that made me happy?

Honestly the Most Important Song

this story really heightened the listening experience for me, I feel salty and empowered

It was honestly a perfect weekend until I messed up my ankle. I can’t wait to go back to New Orleans in November. I don’t think I’d like living there but it is my #1 favorite city to visit. I feel like “salty and empowered” is how I feel when I’m there actually

edit: also I just realized I meant Port Arthur and not Port Charles, my B

Port Arthur is an almost an hour detour off of I-10, drunky. I hope you mean Lake Charles. Hiccup. Anyway, laissez les bons temps rouler!

1976 Phone style


I have a phone just like this in my emergency “Hurricane Kit.”  We don’t have to deal with hurricanes any more!  When the electricity goes out, most phone lines still have power and are active, but cordless phones and their bases require electricity to operate. Phones like this are powered by the phone lines. We use “free” Ooma internet phone for our land-line phone service, now. If the power were to go out, I would use the UPS, battery backup, that is in my studio to power my Internet modem/router, the Ooma device, and this old phone to make emergency calls.

Here’s a #Fender #John #Mayer #Stratocaster from last week’s #guitar shopping.
Did anyone out there see John’s tweet earlier today - the one about him no longer being a Fender #artist and how this model is no longer being made? I’m not a fan of gossip, hearsay and conjecture but…aw hell…I LOVE gossip hearsay and conjecture! Any one know what’s going on with John??

I just want that gorgeous strat. 😬.

I’ve never played one, but from googling this, it sounds like the decision was a business decision.

A shame, really, because IIRC, there were two models. I think one had faux-bakelite knobs? Either way, one was “fantastic,” and the other was “really fucking fantastic.” 
Mayer leaving Fender (from an artistic standpoint) is a really stupid decision.

It’s certainly possible that Fender left that table too. But based on his tweet … I’d guess Mayer left.

There was a Special Edition model of 500, with pearloid tuners and a few other upgrades. It’s pretty fantastic. I have one.  I’m not aware of a model with Bakelite knobs.If I would have bought 2 of them, I could have sold 1 of them, which would pay for both and have money left over.  I don’t think like that though.  I would never sell it, but I do wonder how much it’s worth, because I’ve played the absolute crap out of it -not in mint condition by any means.  Those “Big Dipper” pickups are incredible. It’s on almost every song on my last album, and I plan on it being the focus of my next album -which will be more guitar and groove oriented. I love it. It’s one of the best things that I’ve bought.
