Just riffing...

Bobbi's post about the famous sticker on Woody Guthrie's guitar gave me the idea to put a sticker on Woody Harrelson's banjo...




Somebody who's a more dab hand with the software should be able to take that ball and run with it. ;)

Or Ted Nugent holding his big Birdland with the machine gun neck: This Machine Kills Bambis.

Not sure if you have heard about it yet, but there is a new show premiering on Showtime tomorrow night that you might be interested in: http://www.sho.com/site/locknload/home.do

Nice! I'm ashamed to admit that the Mrs and I have yet to see Zombieland.

Robert Langham said...

Is it just the name "Woody" than condems an otherwise normal kid to nut-dom?

Tam said...

This is the first role I've liked Woody Harrelson in since... hell, since Cheers.

Lorimor said...

Ditto! I did like him in "No Country For Old Men" though.

His character had the grace to die shortly after he made his appearance.

Joseph said...

I just realized that Ted Nugent should have been in Zombieland. Guest appearance of course. But he'd make a great recurring Zombieland character, just like Neal Patrick Harris is in the Harold & Kumar films.

Tam;

My sympathies - it just ruins a joke when you have to explain it. Takes all the fun out of telling it, and hearing it - even if you get it the first time around.

I didn't get it either, until you showed the guitar picture.

"This machine kills fascists"? What? It's a freakin' guitar! Unless it's got lead weights in there, it's not killing anything bigger than a ferret, and that's only if you stuff the ferret in the soundbox and run the whole thing over with a car.

I don't care WHO y'are, that-there's FUNNY.

Joanna - It's all about the internal dialectics, it kills fascists when Woody denounces them to the local Comintern.
And then he and Pete steal their music and make a bunch of money.

Joanna said...

Ah yes, the "not actually making a concrete difference but the posturing sure is fun, isn't it?" technique. But if we're going to kill fascists I prefer to actually, you know, kill them. And if I have to use a musical instrument, I don't want anything lighter than a tenor sax.

Don't mess with the marching band.

The knowledgeable assaultist will always prefer the Norlin-era Gibson Les Paul Custom. Mahogany body with two-piece maple top, typically running 10-12 pounds, with the ultra-stable three-piece maple neck suitable for the overhead swing. Endorsed by axe-murderers world-wide for over thirty years now.

The recent financial unpleasantness has priced these instruments to move, so get yours today.

"Endorsed by axe-murderers world-wide..."

I LOL'ed. :D

No photo attempt, but having drilled and tapped two banjos for electric conversions (yes, seriously) if you swing one you've got a damned deadly weapon... except for the 'bottom' you've got a metal ring in there that equates weight-wise to a cast iron frying pan, on the end of a sturdy long wooden 'axe handle'.

"No photo attempt, but having drilled and tapped two banjos for electric conversions (yes, seriously)"

Direct quote from Bobbi: "I... somehow, I am not surprised."

DirtCrashr said...

I believe my Ukulele would be inadequate.

Dr. StrangeGun said...

Yup, two, different type on each. Both got a chamfered and relieved hole in the side of the... wooden back cover (reverberator?) for a 1/4" mono jack, a tapped hole in the ring for a grounding screw, and a small relief notch in the ring itself carefully ground out and relieved of edges, to clear the barrel of the connector. I was very careful not to change the tuning or cause weakness in the bands, or leave anything sticking out where it could be hit or snagged.

That was all to accomodate a membrane pickup... worked great.

I don't play... my buddy does. http://www.reverbnation.com/centraliamassacre

And still no "Mariachi" jokes?
