I don't see it as satire. I see it more like LARPing as a hair metal band. I don't even like the band. I just think getting bent out of shape about the little things makes the bigger issues seem less important. If people are constantly outraged when something comes along to really be outraged about people dismiss it easier. That's the last I'll say.

Yeah, I was pretty happy with that one. Someone needs to sig that. I think it would be tacky if I put it in my own sig.

Yeah, I was going to say that the stuff I said was so absurd even for a liberal to say, that I didn't think anyone would take it seriously. But I think you make a great point. There are actually people out there who would say stuff like that. :whoa:

It is because people actually listened to each other and discussed it. And people on both sides of the issue made concessions and found common ground. This is why it is important to let people have and freely express different opinions, even if they are uncomfortable for us to hear or go against our values. Silencing the opposition is in my opinion the most dangerous thing we can do as a society, and it is going to come back around to bite us all in the ass. Seriously, did no one else read 1984 in high school?

Absolutely fascinating how reactionaries these days are incapable of not broadcasting their belief via memes/buzzwords.

I second this. Cheers to healthy disagreement and the mutual desire to have fruitful discussions.

Uberlols at the tgp thread.

Now dont' get me wrong, I think some women might want theirs melted by Steel Panther. It reminds me of when Ice T was on Oprah defending the lyrics to Iceberg:

[youtube]http://youtube.com/5fO-KzW1YXw?t=7m40s[/youtube]

"Maybe some girls like to do it with a flashlight!" :lol:

I have no problem with Steel Panther for being as raunchy as they are or even living the vacuous hair metal douchebag dream, as long as everything's consensual. I think it's great for people to live openly sexual lives, and in no way should prudishness infringe on that.

I DO think that TC having that name for a pedal preset could be insulting and it was right for people to reach out and ask them to kindly cut that shit out.

And that's sort of a risk that's come up as a result of decades-long tradition of "artistic" naming of guitar pedals. In the last year or so, I've become increasingly disenchanted with the whole concept of pedal graphics at all and pedal names that sound like they're out of a comic book or whatever. Invisible Man's steez is very appealing to me at the moment.

I like to think of pedals as tools or art supplies. But when I go into Home Depot to buy an angle grinder, my choices are informed by how much power does it take and what size is the disc. "Oh, it's a 7.5 Amp 4-1/2 in. Paddle Switch Angle Grinder? Thanks, Makita!" Similarly if I go into Michael's to buy paintbrushes and canvas - what size is the brush, what is it made of, etc.. But then I walk into a guitar store and suddenly my choice of tools is limited by "well, does this have a picture of a pickle jerking off on the front of it?" etc.

Anyway, this may be a bit of an old man yells at cloud rant. Creative pedal names are a tradition that goes back to the first guitar pedals and are certainly an entrenched part of the industry. But what I'm trying to say is that the risk of offensive pedal names may come with the territory to a certain extant, but that territory itself is stupid.

Is that pickle really jerkin' off though or is that only what you're perceivin'? :D

Also, the tools you mention are utilitarian. Guitar pedals really aren't. :idk:

I kinda wish they'd start marketing paddle switch angle grinders that way. :poke:

There's also not as much competition in the power tool market. They can stick to specs in their ads and leave it at that. :whateva:

Look, something's happening to that pickle and I don't relish having to think about it any harder.

FWIW, I watched a T.Rex documentary awhile back, and they were interviewing some guy who was their manager or part of the road crew or somebody like that. He stated that their audience was largely made up of teenage girls and at the shows there was the smell of urine, due to the girls wetting themselves.

I don't agree. The only time I have ever cared about what a pedal looked like is when I was having a custom one built and the builder asked what I wanted on it... To me they are tools to do stuff I want to do...
