A Picture's Worth A Thousand Words

As the title says, sometimes only a picture can tell the true story of what's going on. Here are some that are pretty interesting.

Blown speakers from Bobby Owsinski's Big Picture blog

If you take notice, all of the cones on the speakers, including the driver on the horn, are blown out. Not from high volume or a blown amp, but because a roadie placed a concussion pod too close to the speaker.

I always felt that someone who drives a monster truck on the street was compensating for some small reproductive equipment (if you know what I mean). Could this be the same? After all, no human could possible get to these during a song.

This one was discovered by Nashville engineer Lynn Fuston and goes to show that a little education goes a long way. The "awesome mixer" has over 4 months experience and will finish his first class in May. Plus, he can bring his laptop and his headphones to do your mix for only $20. But wait, it looks like he'll pay you to mix your songs. If that's the case, I have about a hundred here he can work on.

These are great, Bobby.

Especially the 'can I jam...' solution as long as they brought their own guitar.

Nothing screams Rock n' Roll as loud as someone literally lighting up their own Les Paul.

By the way, where can obtain such a classy fridge?

lol, a marshall fridge... must be a 007 strategy from the crew's food and drink guzzler.
