On a side note...just wondering where in the country John and Audio reside? Audio said "down here in the South"?

Georgia, if I recall correctly.

Atlanta, Ga.

One of the only really livable big cities in the south. grin

If you venture too far out of the safe zone you find yourself in the middle of...

(not the Twilight Zone)

Georgia

Growing up, all I ever knew about Georgia was that it was where they filmed those Macon County Line movies.

And Deliverance!


eek


So I cut a wide berth away from this "cracker" land until I found out about the oasis that is Atl.

I was born in Florida, lived in Los Angeles, New Orleans and Alaska for a bit.

I now make my home in this strategic location with easy access to the worlds busiest and largest airport.

So my tentacles stretch out internationally...


laugh

Below is a photo of me working on a (my first!) major motion picture in the late 80's.

Directed by a once great director, Peter Bogdanovich (The Last Picture Show).

It was a horrible little movie starring Rob Lowe (ironically, right before he got busted in Atlanta for having a sex party with two girls which was shot on video tape. One of the girls was underage I believe...).

I think I can safely expose now that, pretty much the entire crew and cast was coked up for the duration of that turkey.

An extra 5 points for anyone that can name the movie!!!

I had to use Google. Answer is here.

BTW, Athens is the best place to live in Georgia.

You know medic8r, I tend to agree with you. smile

I spend a lot of time there.

I kinda consider it a suburb of Atlanta though.

As you know, Athens is a legendary town for music.

I wonder if they will get the soon to be built Georgia music hall of fame. Macon and Atlanta are also in the running.

I sometimes wish I could buy some farm land in Athens, start a commune and raise me up a crop... grin

You used to live in Augusta, right?

Actually, I have three brothers, one who lives in the same town as I, one in Athens Georgia, and on in Hawaii. No sisters.

We're all very different from each other. The one who lives in Athens loves music, but would never get into a discussion about amplifier reviews. He even has a vinyl collection.
