More Nutty Japanese (English) T-shirts

Hmm... A young girl with a Despot shirt on. If you didn't know, a despot is:

des·pot n

1. a tyrant or ruler with absolute powers

2. somebody who acts in a tyrannical way towards people

3. a minor emperor or prince of the later Roman, Byzantine, or Ottoman empires

Makes you wonder....

New Column on GuitarTools

I've started writing a monthly column on focusing on guitar effects. I write about how they work, the history behind them, the ground-breakers and new ones that I like. It should be a lot of fun and it gives me an opportunity to showcase some of the manufacturers that deserve more recognition.

Hershey Park

I know this is a real T-shirt because there is a Hersheypark PA. But I can't help it. It's sort of funny. How can I say this without insulting anyone. Well, let's just say the word Hershey sort of gets used in a lot of gay jokes, so HERSHEYPARK IS FOR LOVERS with the hearts and that thing I'm pointing to that, well, um, sort of reminds me of a butt hole, gives me the crack-ups. Plus, his face is also making me laugh. This photo was taken backstage at a show we did, the Hersheypark lover guy is Kenichi Fujisawa, the bass player in my band.

Podcast Interview

I did another interview on the "One Minute How To" podcast. If you'll recall, the last one I did was on how to eat Sushi. This one is on how to avoid jet lag, obviously something I've learned to do considering I fly about 100,000 miles a year. The "One Minute How To" podcast is a fun way to get the word out about my music and books and I get to talk about something other than music (barf). Anyway, it is sort of goofy so have a listen if you have a chance but especially if you are going to be doing some traveling.
