For the last couple of years, I’ve been attempting to create and maintain a multiple-website presence for my Scarebear brand/identity/handle. There was a website for the parent brand—the domain you’re currently on—as well as dedicated websites for my hobbies which include the following …… End of a decade, end of the multi-site approach
I once started a series of articles on the guitars I have in my own collection. I started that series when all the images on this website were in black and white. I’ve since decided it was time to start the series again. What better place to start this updated series with one of the guitars I
updated bastardised a few years ago.
This is the story of my C Giant acoustic guitar. The acoustic guitar I bought from Aldi. It seemed like a sensible idea at the time.… The C Giant acoustic guitar I bastardised
The problem with trying to write weekly blog posts about different guitars I’d love to own is that I spend so much time looking at the guitars, I leave myself little time to do the actual writing. This week—which should have been about two weeks ago—I’ve found myself looking at all the beautiful guitars that LT Custom Guitars has created.
Now it’s time to write about one of their models that I’d love to see more of—the ‘JM’.… Another 52 Guitars, week 5—LT Custom Guitars ‘JM’
This week’s entry continues several trends that I’ve started this year’s article series with. Those trends include; features I don’t currently own in any guitars myself, brands possibly not at the forefront of your mind when you think of mainstream guitar manufacturers and tardiness.
I hope to improve on my tardiness issue in these weekly articles. Everything else I hope to stick with for the majority of the year.… Another 52 Guitars, week 4—Harmony Guitars Silhouette
One of the main things I like about this week’s guitar is that if I created a custom design with Schwung Guitars—which is something they allow anybody to do—this is insanely close to what I’d choose. The Schwung Crossover ivory Shark is basically the perfect Schwung guitar for me.… Another 52 Guitars, week 3—Schwung Crossover ivory Shark
Week two of the new series—cleverly called Another 52 Guitars because I’ve already done a series called 52 Guitars—and I’m almost working in real time. It’s technically the beginning of the third week of the year, but I don’t follow the rules of the standard calendar.
That’s a good thing though. It allows me to do things like include a 2019 guitar in my 2020 series simply because this guitar looks awesome and I’d be as proud as a Manson Guitar Works artist to own one. The model I’ve decided I admire the most is the MA EVO 2019.… Another 52 Guitars, week 2—Manson Guitar Works MA EVO 2019
At the end of last year, I wrote about the Lightning Guitar Picks by PLB World. The lightning guitar pick is a cool novelty item. The main product that PLB World is trying to get people to notice however is their Perfect Lock Bolt guitar strap locks. It’s not a novelty. It’s seriously trying to make your guitar safer while you’re playing it.
I’m lucky enough to have received one of the Perfect Lock Bolt guitar strap locks and I like them. I have a feeling I won’t be dropping my Ibanez RX-20 anytime soon. Let’s delve deeper.… Perfect Lock Bolt guitar strap locks
Back in 2013, I did a weekly series about 52 different guitars I’d love to own. At the end of that year, I ended up buying one of the guitars in the list. Well, it’s been way too long since I blogged regularly and it’s also been too long since I found the motivation to find another guitar to buy. That changes now and my inspiration starts strong with the Palm Bay Guitars Avalanche AXX1.… Another 52 Guitars, week 1—Palm Bay Guitars Avalanche AXX1
Back in the beginning of 2017, I wrote a short article on songs that say “Go!”. I wrote that article after doing nothing on my site for months. This year I’m starting much earlier with my blog content creation and I’m generally more motivated. That’s what makes a revamped “Go!” playlist that much more appealing to me. I’m excited!
Let’s “Go!”… More songs that say “Go!”
Quite often I’ll be scrolling through my Twitter feed—the same could be said for Instagram or Facebook—and I’ll come across some new piece of guitar gear/technology that makes me say “Oh, that’s new!”
When I do this, it’s out loud and my wife either says “What’s new?” or “If it’s guitar-related, you don’t need it”. When I try to explain what’s new, she rarely cares. When I showed her the video that PLB World had posted of their lightning guitar picks—impact activated LED plectrums—she agreed that this was indeed something she’d not seen before.
Yay! I could continue perusing 🙂… Lightning Guitar Picks—LED impact plectrums
This year, I’ve been writing fortnightly posts about bands that are grouped by their band name’s starting letter. It started with the A list and logically ended with the Z list—that’s generally how the alphabet starts and ends. The entire series is conveniently grouped under this 26 playlists tag group.… The Heavy Alphabet
