Sorry, Brad. You are right. I think I left a cord plugged into my jokegitter over the weekend and the battery went dead. Yeah, that's what happened.

With all respect, but in my life my wife is and will always be unique and my very only one. Calling the Alembic my "other" wife wouldn't do justice to either one. Especially since I feel an Alembic instrument can never be the "other" one, it will always be THE main one (just not the "wife", that is). Funny, do female players call their instruments "husbands"?

In my opinion, Alembic doesn't require any tag line, just the name. Anything else would make it look like a supermarket product.

Just my opinion of course.

Just for clarification.

Here's the joke behind the "my other wife" thing:

In the US, many people have bumper stickers and license plate frames that are some variation of "my other car is a Rolls Royce".

There's a standing joke about "my wife" being a bass guitar.

It was meant as a joke. I never meant to imply that an inanimate object would somehow attain the level of the woman that I married.

I'm sorry if this caused anyone any distress; it was just an (apparently poor) attempt at humor.

Brad, sorry were making your humorous comments into so much work for you. Im more guilty than the rest here. I can't even blame it on a culture barrier. Does diminished cerebral function work as a good excuse?

I know this is rude, but all of you who've taken yours to a new gig will know where I'm coming from:

Black t-shirt, the logo on the back in gold, and on the front: "...yeah, dumbass, OLYMPIC!..."

Joey,

Reminds me of a funny t-shirt I saw recently:

I give up-- it's nucular.

Kinda off the subject, but bumper sticker-related nevertheless...I saw a good one today:
"Save a Horse...ride a Cowboy"

My wife and I saw one last weekend that read:

"Save a horse - Ride a Fat Guy"

You should have seen the guy driving the truck...

Hey--

I'm not fat; I'm just big boned*.

Brad

* this is actually true-- I had an orthopedic surgeon tell me that if I had a "normal" physiology, I'd have shattered my leg (after an accident; isn't being in the Army fun?!).

One of my all-time favorites:

I may be fat, but you're ugly...
...and I can diet!

That calls to mind a famous Winston Churchill quote, replying to a society matron who berated him for being tipsy: "Mr.Churchill you are drunk!"
To which he answered : "And you, madam, are ugly. But tomorrow, I shall be sober."

The way I heard it was that the society matron said, "If I were married to you, I would poison your food."

To which he replied, "If I were your husband, I would eat it."

Reverend - "Oh, ye sinners and fornicators! Repent! Repent! Lest come the day of judgement, there will be a great weeping and wailing and a gnashing of teeth!"

Old Woman - "Reverend, I have no teeth."

Reverend - "In your case, madam, teeth shall be provided!"

The imaginary bumper sticker says:

ALEMBIC: All others are mere baseball bats.

ALEMBIC: After playing one, everything else is anti-climactic.

ALEMBIC: All others seem like 2x4s.

ALEMBIC: You could play something else, but why?

I would like a bumper sticker with just a simple Alembic logo. Those who know would know, and those who wouldn't wouldn't...

Guys, Alembic has a cafepress store full of logo-branded gear. While there isn't a bumper sticker currently in the "alembicstuff" catalog, I'm sure Mica would be up for adding it, if there was enough interest.

I really want an embroidered ballcap. A really high quality one (as befits the logo).

I didn't see one on the cafepress site. My experience has been that cafepress isn't always the best in terms of quality.
