"The richest 1% cause double the CO2 emissions of the poorest half of the worlds population." - shocking stat from @Oxfam & @SEIclimate.

We need our leaders to do the right thing. Put people before profit. #ActOnClimate

Wow! Today's global strike is supported by scientists in both the Arctic (left: 📸L. Nixon) and the Antarctic (right: 📸W. Almeida) where the ice is melting dramatically. Let's start listen to the science and . In which part of the world do you strike today?

"When did civilisation start?" he asked the angel.
"When someone said 'what if' and told a story about a better tomorrow," the angel said.
"Oh? Not farming, trade, or literacy?"
"Those all came later."
"Huh. And when will civilization end?"
"When you stop telling those stories."

Found a bargain bluetooth keyboard today. The only advantage is that it is small. If all goes according to plan it will be the new unit to travel with me.

Can we please, please – PLEASE! not make the nonsensical US date format month/day/year the default in applications? 🤦‍♂️


And to all users of that format: it makes no sense, it's counter-intuitive, it makes collaboration frustrating, it introduces inconsistencies and errors... Just stop. Please. Use international standards.
(And don't get me started on your other units of weights, volumes and distances. Bloody hell.)

Boost if I'm right.

Still curious about what real musicians would say about my design.

Forgot to mention that the bass will have a quiet alumitone pickup. So it will probably have a unique tone. The hardware combinations makes predictions a bit hard to do.

A chubby telecaster-(guitar)-type headstock with angled tuning machines (like on my rockbass).

The small headstock makes the bass as long as a mustang even though is has a two inches longer scale.

Show thread

More sketches of what could possibly be my own bass. This time the headstock.

Any musicians out there? I'm designing a bass for myself and would like some feedback.

The body is shaped almost like a mustang but with slightly modified cutaways, a pickup mounted like a stingray and an esquire lookalike pickguard. Volume and tone are stacked. The bridge is a Gotoh WB2P.

The neck is fretless and is made with a 12" radius for a medium scale. The headstock is as close to the guitar version of a telecaster as I could make it. Angled Gotoh GB707 tuners.

@ideasmithy - The context is very different now because of global warming. Things are already changing for the better and that will only accelerate in the coming years.

The only sane soul here at home is the puppy. She's the only one sleeping...

@carbontwelve - Life is what happens while you're making other plans...

Almost there...

Paranormal medium scale Esquire bass guitar?
