i think this is one of the cheapest prices i've for these. there's a few other pedals on this site that aren't a bad price. i'm thinking of ordering one of these

i've done a 14 hour shift, but I'm in that state where your knackered but can't sleep, yet you also can't do much without getting it wrong.

i made a cup of tea earlier with out realizing that i hadn't boiled the kettle.

You can't ban anybody with a Mellotron or access to a Mellotron, even if it's broken. It's in the forum bylaws under Section 308-C.

best one is when i was showing off, using a cocktail shaker. i put mixed all this grenadine, vodka and decide that lemonade would be a bright idea. fizzy+cocktail shaker= pink explosion of cocktail all over new grouted kitchen. we now have slightly pink grout.

I think if you have a mellotron and aren't playing ProgRock than you automatically lose the lifetime pass. It gets revoked and instead you are afforded several heated warnings and have to display behavior worse than AUG's to get banned. It's not a lifetime pass but it's the next best thing.

I should point out to all you European Blue Box fans that there's one for sale in the classifieds, in case you hadn't noticed.

I've done this many a time. My crowning breakfast disaster achievement though was pouring orange juice into my cornflakes.

Cool. I see hotrox will price match. All I need to do is get them to join the forum and post 50 times...

Hotrox'x price match policy is piss. When I was buying my Reel Echo from them, I pointed them in Thomann's direction, and they refused to honour it. Fuck 'em, I bought it from Thomann instead. Hotrox gave me some jive about the adapter not being a three-pin UK one, but wouldn't have included it anyhow. Twats.
