Speaking of silly little things, Bob Anderson is pissed at me because I mentioned his name here. Like he is the only guy in the world with that name! Ha! I can think of two or three others in this area alone! It is such a shame that the little SOB doesn't have a computer. I'd really like him to know just how much I can't stand him. He thinks that computers are a waste of time and money. I feel sorry for his poor kids when they've gotta do an assignment for school. What an asshole! I think I'll mention his name again, just out of spite...Bob Anderson. What's he gonna do? Sue me? You can't get blood from a stone, you know!
One more time just for clarification purposes...
Bob Anderson in no way resembles Klaus Meine.
He does NOT look like him. He does NOT sound like him, and I am also quite certain that he shares NO personality traits with him!
There...I feel much better now!

Oooo...Look what I found! I just had to post a new picture today, in honor of Matthias' birthday. He's 47. I don't have the courage to go to the official site and wish him a happy birthday. I'd probably say something that would make me look stupid. I do things like that. So, I shall do so here...
Happy Birthday, Matthias!
Although we have never met, and probably never will, I would like to thank you for somehow making me remember the dreams I once had and who I am. The dreams may never be realized, but they are something that I now know are an important part of who I am. I shall cherish them forever in the hopes that someday they really do come true.
All of my love,

Klaus Meine does NOT look like Bob Anderson!
Why make this statement? It seems that a certain person with whom I work thinks that he does. What an insult!!! Bob Anderson is the most DISGUSTING creature ever to walk on planet earth! Her statement started one of those very childish arguments in the parking lot...
Me: "Does not!"
Me: "Does NOT!!"
Get the picture? This is why I have decided to list the reasons why Klaus does NOT look like Bob.
1. Klaus - Blue eyes; Bob - brown eyes
2. Bob - frequently sports a beard. Klaus - Clean shaven.
3. Bob - Hairy beast! Klaus - NOT!
4. Klaus - Dark curly hair: Bob - Light brown and straight (what's left of it)
5. Klaus looks sweet and lovable. Bob looks like the obnoxious bastard that he is!!!

The answer: G-i-b-s-o-n!
Yes, the catalogs are here. It is such torture. I get to see them all and drool. The price of the Explorer has gone down to $750. It's still a good bit out of my price range, and it is not even the model that I so long to own. It's a brown wood grain finish one. Lord only knows how much I would have to pay for my beloved plain white one...
A lady on my route was telling me about how her brother (no kids, decent job, lives with mom & dad) plunked out $3000 to buy her sons a couple of Gibson guitars for Christmas last year. Damn, I wish he were MY uncle! Wait a minute...I am his mail lady. Perhaps if I give him extra special service...
Oh, God! I can see the headlines now. "Mail Carrier Fired for Exchanging Sexual Favors for Gibson Guitar."

Steve Clark of Def Leppard
April 23, 1960-January 8, 1991
My, but I am feeling a bit morbid, aren't I?! Why? A friend of mine saw my Scorpion themed shop on NeoPets and mentioned that she would like to do something similar in her shop using Def Leppard. Since I would have to say that they are my second favorite band of all time (What?! The Scorpions are #1, of course!), it got me to thinking. The thinking got me to scanning. I now have a nice little folder, full of pictures of Steve Clark. This one is one of my favorites. Such a shame that he is gone. He was so beautiful, and one hell of a guitarist, too. (Sorry, Viv!)

But it was well worth the wait. He is gorgeous, a bit ostentatious, but gorgeous. The position marker inlays and even the trademark logo are all mother of pearl, the strings bronze wound, light gauge (Thank Heaven!), and (Heheheh!) the pick guard has "Fender" printed all over it. That's the ostentatious part, but hey, I wouldn't want it to be mistaken for some cheap thing. It sounds absolutely fantastic. I had nearly forgotten how much I loved playing those 12 string models. Ah, yes, it's all coming back to me now.
Yes, I am a bit ridiculous about the whole thing, but it's a damned good guitar, and I wanted it so bad (Bad enough to forgo lunch and smoke generic cigarettes until next payday)! I wore the tag from it on my belt today. The girls at work are wondering how long it will be before I bring it in to play during my lunch break since I already take my laptop with me every day. No, that's not gonna happen. I would not subject my baby to the horrors of the back of the mail truck!

Update on the Missing Guitars
Upon hearing of my recent purchase, my culprit informed me that someone was selling a 12-string in the classified section of our local paper for $25. He's such an idiot! If it's being sold for that cheap, the neck is probably warped. I should know. The first 12-sting that I owned, I bought at a flea mart for $20. The neck was warped pretty bad, but I got a few months of play out of it before it got so bad that it couldn't play it. *sniff* By then I had bought my now missing Yamaha 12-string, so I just threw it away. People just don't realize how much tension those 12 strings put on the necks of those things. If you're gonna store 'em, you've gotta loosen the strings!!!
DO YOU HEAR ME, ALL OF YOU RANK AMATEURS?!

Klaus Meine with Phil Collen of Def Leppard
Ain't they so cute!
This picture is so bad you gotta love it! Either someone was incredibly drunk when it was snapped (and I'm not talking about Phil), or that flash really took him by surprise.

I still have about ten minutes to kill. I deliver to a business that shuts down for lunch every day from noon to one. It's not a problem on most days, I just drop the mail in the box, but today they have an item requiring a signature. If my creative juices were flowing, I would be using this time to start Part V of the Scorp-Fic, but I've got a rather bad case of writer's block right now. I wouldn't want to subject you to anything that wasn't up to my exacting standards there, so I am instead typing this whiny blog entry. Maybe someone will get back from lunch early, I'm getting sick of sitting here!

This poses a new problem. "Blackie" has already been re-strung. In order to replace the newly found missing part, I must very carefully remove his "e" string and all of that nifty aluminum foil I used in place of said part. Once the wayward part is returned to its proper position, I must then get the "e' strong back on! This is where the REAL problem lies. I cannot stand having "little stringy monsters" protruding from my guitars, so I clip the ends off new strings as soon as they are tuned. It's a bitch and a half to put a string that has been clipped back on a guitar. Still, I've gotta do this soon, or that part will end up going missing again. This is the price I've gotta pay for being so persnickety!
Random Words for Today:
Thought I forgot about them, did you?!
James Kottak, Flying V, Fender...
What?! Who are these guys?!
Oooo...It's Justin Hayward & John Lodge of the Moody Blues, and just guess who is going to be seeing them a mere eleven rows from the stage...
Yeah, I wish it were the Scorpions, but these guys are pretty cool in their own way. I must confess to being a bit excited over this. I must be to give them this place of honor here with the Scorpions. Actually, this picture was still lurking around on my hard drive from when I edited it for my sister, the music whore (Heheheh!). She is the reason I am going to this show. Gotta have some company on that long drive to Youngstown, Ohio. Of course, since I am the older, more mature one in this pair *laughs hysterically* I must keep her from doing anything foolish. I wonder who is going to prevent ME from doing anything foolish...

Good news for those of you who are reading my Scorp-Fic. Part IV was posted yesterday. Yeah, it is getting kinda creepy, but I promise it's gonna be good.
