Just found 'em, colin! Awesome!
Have you uploaded images here? I would love to see it.
well put, turtlehead.
I don't do this for the exclusivity but the "outsider-ness" of the CBG is something that I find in many other aspects in my life.
I like that.
As Jerry Garcia once said of the Grateful Dead:
"We're like licorice. Not everybody likes licorice, but the people who like licorice really like licorice."
That's how I feel about CBGs. They're not for everyone and that's fine with me. In fact, I prefer it that way. I like living out here in the Land of the Misfit Toys. If everyone is doing it, I might have to find another hobby.
I appreciate not only your feedback and kind words but your thoughtful response as well. I enjoy the sense of community we all build upon in our own way and taking the time to join a conversation in the manner that you do is positive community building.
Regardless of how some people view the instrument, I, like you, love it anyways. It may be something different for everyone but there is no denying the commonality of fulfillment in the building and/or playing the darn things. I feel fortunate to have CBGs in my life.
Thank you for jumping in here, Wayfinder. It's good to see from you.
Hey colin! Thank you for giving the stuff a look. I don't know how I fudged up the vid thing. Hopefully I get to see some pics of your diesel box in all of its finished glory.
Uncle John, thank you for the kind words. It's good to get feedback, whether it is positive or negative, from an honest and constructive perspective.
I have not been around the Nation long and am not currently around as much as I'd like to be but it seems that Silent Jim and the mystery that surrounds him is quite a thing. The post he left here was under a different name but signed off by SJ.
Thank you again and I look forward to staying up with more of your work.
"what is real" Is it tangible? It is hologram?
I loved your video rant. And I agree with you on all points.
Interestingly though, this comes up as a thread of all your videos. I have watched the quick chugger video twice now. I am going to do that with a diesel box I have, thanks.
Silent Jim! The DUDE ABIDES.
He seems to be gone most of the summer. It's always good to have him back.
He's had some other names too, one was TopHat Commode.
