Because the upgrade to linernotes went so smoothly the upgrade to the toot-lab is in a hell loop of failed database migrations and corruption. The balance is maintained.

I was just listening to a bunch of ZZ Top last night.

"ZZ Top Bassist Dusty Hill Dead At Age 72"

jesus christ can you *imagine* what Zappa would be doing with today's digital music tools :blobsad: youtube.com/watch?v=8GAWk5fxZq

We're back up and running v3.4.1 club - also, I think the issue with images is now resolved so you should see the media rich content you deserve.

Give me a holler if anything seems overly funky!

Hello would you buy a high quality 4” sticker of the new #dadsFM logo for $5 mailed? it’s worth it for me if like ten people say yes.

Hey club! Maintenance window is still on, I just got done with work a bit later than I anticipated.

A backup snapshot is being taken now, after which I will take the instance down to do the needful things.

Two hours until I find out if our rock band band is ranking into elite diamond class at the end of this rivals season. At this point we're scoring in the top 100ish bands still playing the game. That's wild to me!

For when it’s invariably a question at your local trivia night at the pub...

I think this was the first music video played on mt.v

@dustin I've not seen it but I am more likely to now lol

Mick Avory's drums are almost completely buried in the mix all the way through yet it totally works out.

1970's "Lola Versus Powerman and the Moneygoround, Pt. One" by The Kinks is one of the least rock sounding rock albums ever but I really dig it.

...speaking of spray-gun muscle memory, if you have €18,000.00 (lol) you can own some of my handiwork (maybe) from 1997 in the form of this officially licensed, meticulously researched, limited edition life-sized Darth Vader.

I painted and clear-coated a lot of of Darth Vader helmets and chestplates that year, although by no means all 500 of them.

IIRC they sold these at The Sharper Image for like six grand each.

It's hard to believe it now, but that was pre-prequel and back then George Lucas still had more nerd good will than anyone on earth (perhaps a raised eyebrow at the "Special Editions", but mostly happy to be able to see them on the big screen again), and everybody in the shop was fucking jazzed when we found out one of them was going to Skywalker Ranch. We all signed the inside of the helmet of that one.

I will say that the specimen in this photo needs a proper buffing; they were super-glossy when we shipped them.

Finally made an actual start on things: 2 coats of shellac on the body as a sanding sealer - I'm glad I've spent as much time as I have poking around the TDPRI web site because the 'cantilevered spray stand' approach is great, even my half-assed jerry-rigged version. Way better than trying to hold the thing in one hand and paint it with the other, or hang it from something, etc.

Also an absolute game-changer: the $3 rustoleum spray can attachment that gives you a handle and squeeze trigger; it is *so* much more natural/comfortable/controllable. I surprised myself with how much spray gun muscle memory I seem to have. I'll never spray any thing without one again.

I also roughed out the headstock, probably rushed it a little bit but I don't think there's anything I can't salvage with sandpaper + time.
