    I am now the proud owner of an ESP Horizon FRII-D.

    It's a purple/blue quilt top with neck through. It feels absolutely amazing to play and has a high output sound second to none thanks to the Seymour Duncans - JB bridge and ‘59 neck. I actually went in to the shop to buy a prestige ibanez but they all felt or sounded... wrong for various reasons. The 2550 just didn't have the tone I wanted, the 1570 had the tone but the neck didn't feel good. I really wanted something with the ZR trem system in it but nothing I played felt right. The boys at LORD are spot on to play these ESPs, it's the only thing I've played that comes close to my les paul in tone, but this has a real floyd in it. While the paul had more mid and bottom in it, the ESP definitely has plenty of that, but it leans a little more towards the higher frequencies, giving it a snap and sizzle on certain positions I just can't get from my bareknuckle loaded paul.

    Yes, it cost more than the Ibanez I was looking at, but IMHO worth every cent. It has a push-push coil split on the volume knob

    This looks exactly like mine:

    So I've taken the plunge. Well not really plunge - more like dipping toe in water - of tentatively booking a cabin for the wife and I on 70000 Tons of Metal 2014.

    Was not initially planning to go but several factors have motivated us.
    - last 70k on Majesty of the Seas as it is being retired from the fleet, and the wife and I had our honeymoon on there so we want to say goodbye to the old girl
    - 10% discount for booking early
    - special gift as it will be my 4th 70000 tons

    Initial lineup is not blowing me away. But it will be great to finally see Symphony X live. Plus I look forward to seeing Dark Tranquillity and Finntroll again!

    Anyone else going? Thinking about it?? If you are and you've not been on the previous ones, please use this referrer code OIUXMFLIYX as I will get $50 free onboard credit. I promise to buy you a beer if you do ;)

    I somehow get the impression they don't sound that good.

    It looks like some of them would have earthing issues.

    There are several clips of them on youtube- in particular the guy from that haunted house restaurant on the gold coast plays some pretty good lead on his- didn't sound like any earthing issues to me :)

    So little whoring going on. Surely not everyone is doing their whoring on Facebook these days?

    You'd expect a little more forum activity now that everyone is avoiding facebook so they don't see any Breaking Bad spoilers.

    People would be brave putting BB spoilers up. Does it actually happen? People refer to it but I haven't seen anyone give anything away.

    I have a good idea of the ending of BB due to one idiot and I hear some lunatic posted on my friend's wall the endings to both BB and Dexter. My friend went off his nut and put up a status naming and shaming the guy, lol.

    Bloody hell. I think that person deserves to have some really unpleasant things come his way! I don't know what on earth would possess someone to spoil it for others like that.

    I only just finished watching Dexter season 3... hadn't been pursuing it when they stopped showing it on free to air TV here. Also my sister gave me BB season 1 on DVD but I haven't watched it yet. If I do ever make it to the ends, any spoilers I accidentally read will be safely forgotten. :p
