"Most of the time I play electric. At this time I have my eye on a Gibson Les Paul Custom Zakk Wylde signature model. I have been staying away from the heavy Les Paul's but played a Zakk model and wow that is the one. It sports EMG active 81,85…"
"When my father passed away recently he left me his MSA 10 string double-neck steel guitar. I plan on learning to play it, although with all the projects I have going on it may be a while. I always thought it was cool that his name was…"
"hmm.. this is tough...
As far as electric goes probably a tele, pretty plain, but they sound great and I never really had the need for a third pickup and I think they handle gain better in the bridge than a strat for some reason... I seem to have a…"
"Gibson Pete Townshend Les Paul Deluxe
Mini humbuckers in the bridge and neck position, a DiMarzio super distortion in the middle
Has a Phaser switch and a soil splitter for the DiMarzio
A nice Wine Red finish would do me good too"
"Precisely. Anil is *just* as welcome as any of us...no more, no less. And, if *any* of us behaved like that, I would expect eventual sanctioning and the possibility of removal.
To stick with the theme of this group, my attitude…"
"Chuck - the problem I have with Anil's posts is not their content per se, but that they are copied and pasted verbatim from several other websites. AOM is not meant to be a mouthpiece, it is meant for discussion and conversation. You cannot…"
"Remember, Ken, Anil is just as welcome here, as you or I. We have people come, and people go, and only *some* of them stay for the long term.
Anil's posts are...troubling? Yeah, that's a good word. But,…"
"I don't dislike Shane. But what was uncalled for here? ...was it the BAD word?
You attackers, and defenders of the faith should train your guns on Anil...he's the guy who's infiltrated your Camp...and diluting what was at one time a…"
"After all, everything hinges on the meaning of the word *is.*
Seriously, Ken, that little outburst was uncalled for. Shane can be exasperating, but he's generally a good guy, and he knows his stuff.
As for the topic at…"
Initially he answered you & the OP by saying you were technically correct that there are no bad words, but he went on to explain that words have meaning.
And therein lies the problem, as I see it... If they aren't bad words, then why…"

"In many cases, the words are only "bad" by arbitrary designation. Words aren't, themselves, moral or immoral.
I'm not sure what difference it makes which word one chooses to use for their feces. There are situations…"
I do not hate the christian faith. I just get annoyed when someone brings it into a argument it does not belong. Arguing religion over the internet solves nothing... I did
before, but have learned. No ones opinion is going to change.
stay away from the logo's that look like corporate logo's. It makes the church seem colder to outsiders (I am trying to give you an outsiders perspective from the church because I assume you want to get more followers).
From what I have seen "Where Jesus Meet's real life" is the best slogan, but i am torn on the imagery. You want warm colours to make the place seem inviting. Blue and white tends to come off cold. The Jesus fish with the cross' makes me thin cemetery, so I may have to go with one of the lighter coloured hills with a cross on top, or the golden bridge. I am not saying they are the best Symbols, but they are the most inviting in my opinion.
The one you guys ranked the best is clever, for it looks like a cross and a cross road (hopefully not the one Robert Johnson sold his soul to the devil at), but as I said, the colours are cold.
Keep in mind this is just my opinion and just what I think if you are trying to bring new blood into the church.
"In my trunk I have an 18th century tent, a Boy Scout cot, two wool blankets, a sleeping bag, a mallet for tent spikes, rope, a flat of bottled water and a first aid kit. I suppose there's a spare tire and tire iron in there somewhere, too."
"I'm sympathetic to his message, but he's replying to one piece of overly broad advice with another. There may be value to this insofar as it grabs attention and gets people thinking, insofar as the sort of refinements I would propose…"
