Bits and bobs...

Work on the V-Bass

I have got the new pickups and found that the existing holes for 2 of the pickups are not quite big enough and the 2 new holes that I painstakingly chiselled out are not quite right. I couldn't face yet more chiselling so I have invested in a ROUTER! This is a wonderful power tool that is designed for hollowing out bits of wood and it will make my life MUCH easier. It also means that there are likely to be more modified guitars in the future...

My Blog

Thanks to Jen, I have discovered the Follow feature. This allows me to have a list of my favourite blogs at the bottom of my own blog, showing which have got new posts. It has also allowed me to create a new section showing who is following MY blog, which I have rather naughtily called my "Groupies". I currently have two Groupies...

Guest Blogging

If you are checking blogs over the weekend, I have done a guest post for The Princess of the Universe which will appear on Saturday. Check it out - it will be an experience for you, shall I say?

Update: This has been published early, so you can go to the Princess's blog and scroll down to find it, if you really want to!

That's about it, really. If you haven't yet listened to my recording of myself on the guitar, please go back to the previous post "Rock and Roll" and follow the link.

More soon!

Routers rock! I just thought you had chiseled b/c you didn't want to hurt the V-Bass . . .?

Thanks for the shout out & I am definitely a "groupie". The Follow Feature doesn't make me seem too much the "stalkerella" that I may or may not come off as when I click on all ya'lls links 500 times per day.

I couldn't download your guitar music the other day. Sad! I'll wait for the video. . .

Jen - send me an email and I will send you the sound file as an attachment if you like.

I used a chisel because I thought it would be fun and cheaper than getting a router, but it wasn't fun for long and the router was very cheap!

I just got done reading Logzie's sexually explicit post, so when I came here, I thought the title of this post was "Bits and Boobs." Oops!

I'm one of your groupies! Yay! I've never been a groupie before!

Chief Rock Chef said...

Terri - Did you just write "boobs" on my blog? And you complain when I get a bit naughty :-)

Thanks for being one of my Groupies!

terri said...

'scuse me, Chief? I don't believe I've ever complained about you being a bit naughty! :-)

I may have pointed out the fact that things were heading in a naughtier direction, but you shouldn't mistake that for a complaint ;-)

Teresa said...

Sexually explicit??? Really...oops! I think I lack that "thing" that most people have that says "maybe you shouldn't share that with the world"...LOL!

Yay! I'm a groupie too! I hadn't seen that feature but I knew about the other one that puts the blogs in order of who posted last...I'd been using that for a while and I LOVE it! One thing though...you can't count on it. I've had it where I didn't check certain blogs for a while b/c I didn't think there was a new post and then I was really behind and I felt terrible for missing so much! Now, I make sure I check all of them no matter what that thing says...for the most part it's accurate though.

Chris said...

I'm a groupie now too, just don't expect me to flash my boobs. ;)

tz said...

oh my gosh you looked just like a princess...love the crown!

Kiki said...

Heyyyyy, I want to be a groupie!! I couldn't listen to the sample either...waiting for the video!!!

Sitting in Silence said...

I'm in as a groupie...I'v just come from Teresa's blog...I must have missed her explicit post....Just my luck ! LMAO..

Chief Rock Chef said...

Terri - OK - Sorry, I automatically gave your comments a disapproving tone when I read them. I will know better in the future.

Teresa - It was no worse that we have seen in the past. We are all adults here, and if any of us aren't getting the odd bit of morning squishiness - WHAT IS WRONG WITH THEM?! ;-)

Chris - That is OK, I don't even expect the girls to flash theirs.

tz - Thanks - Princess published it early!

Kiki - do you want me to email it to you?

Sitting in Silence - Scroll down to the one about Squishing... And welcome!

Ali said...

First off - Rock Chef, you totally are a groupie kind of guy!

Second - If anyone is a groupie, it's me :)

Third - Oooh, router, talk dirty to me!

Chief Rock Chef said...

Ali -

Yeah, yeah.

So true!

You're going to hell...

terri said...

Just had to let you know that the comments alone on this post made me laugh out loud. Sitting here in my kitchen. All by myself. Laughing. Out loud.

Thanks for a great start to my day!

terri said...

I have just returned from The Princess of the Universe's blog and am putting in my bid for more videos like that! EXCELLENT! Absolutely, madly EXCELLENT!

Chief Rock Chef said...

Terri - it has been a rather good exchange hasn't it - especially considering that the original post was rather dull!

Princess of the Universe said...

As far as I'm concerned, you're welcome to do a regular feature of vblogs at my place any time!
xo

I discovered the blog roll thing a little while ago and have it on the side bar of my blog. I almost started the follower thing, but thought it might be a bit over confident that I have "followers":) I'm getting to add it right now because you and Logzie both have it on yours.

kenady said...

Love the comments here!

oh, and I'm a groupie too!

kenady said...

Just saw your v-blog on Princess and it was hilarious!! Love your song! Well done!

Chief Rock Chef said...

Princess - A regular feature? Not sure I could cope with that, but thanks for the thought!

Kenady - I thought they were fun features. I don't spend much time on things like that so added them just so my poor blog doesn't feel too taken for granted. Glad you liked the Princess vblog! Did you find the download of me and my guitars?

Kiki said...

Thanks for emailing it to me, of course I tried to open it on my iPhone which gave me some trouble, so I am about to watch it from the comfort of my own couch.

Loved the Princess video blog....you are a genius!!!

Ali said...

LOL!!! Why am I going to hell exactly? For being excited about your router?!?

Chief Rock Chef said...

Ali - Well for some reason I don't think you are "floating around the clouds playing the harp" material...
