Thanks for supporting the Althouse blog!

What kind of pussy bass player uses fluorescent pink strings?


I forgot. We're being tolerant and inclusive here.

I'm friends with a very pretty, very young, very female bass player in Woodstock. She's the daughter of one of the most sought after guitar player session guys in town.

Unfortunately, Dad's a political crank and daughter has inherited same. I'm friends with both on FB. At least 15 graphic propaganda blasts a day from dad and daughter on GMOs, vile Republicans, global warming, gay marriage... you name it.

Nonapod said...

I wasn't even aware you could get strings at Amazon. I buy all my music stuff from either Musicians Friend or my local shop.

Maybe they also bought the Tantus Black Penis Ring.

Meade said...

Yes, the Althouse blog is tolerant and inclusive of political cranks of every persuasion. We also do what we can to accommodate the needs of even the most zealous religious sects in order to facilitate broad participation in our democratic republican blog. For example: we never schedule a blog meetup on the birthday of Robert "Fighting Bob" La Follette, father of the religious sect known as Progressives.

Too many people buy too much crap.


Unknown said...

It's all crap until you need it.
Try thinking of it this way...If people can still afford to buy crap the economy isn't completely ruined yet.
I call it the Book Fair rule. If parents still send kids with money to buy "book related items" also known as crap, we're not living in a doomed economy yet.

Shouting Thomas said...

Bass strings aren't crap. They're a necessity.

But, pink? Fluorescent?

I'm an Old Dawg! I like to listen to old farts stand there, without movement of any kind that might approximate dancing, playing the bass God intended bass players to pluck, a Fender P-bass with good old nickel wound strings.

Flat wound strings are OK if you want some Diversity!

Freeman Hunt said...

ST, maybe those strings are for some wild traditionalist woman just waiting to meet the likes of you!

Shouting Thomas said...

Always look on the bright side of life, eh, Freeman?

The Tantus Advance Penis Ring earns a four star rating on Amazon.

The reviews are great.

Best penis ring I have used!

bagoh20 said...

Pink Bass strings, but a black penis ring? The election must have really screwed with the heads of Althousians. Up is down.

Shanna said...

Wow there are some ugly pink guitars on amazon.

Eric the Fruit Bat said...

Who needs a penis ring when you've got old bass strings laying around?

Meade said...

Plus, once you go pink, you'll never rethink.

"What kind of pussy bass player uses fluorescent pink strings?"

What's the matter, don't you like pussy?

And what's with posting a non-Althouse-portal link to the penis ring? That was a dick move.

My apologies.

I have not reoriented my thinking in this regard, and will attempt to do so in the future.

What can I say? I'm a dick!

Bob R said...

I'm a flatwound guy myself, so I guess I'm adding diversity. 'Course I use Thomastics instead of LaBellas, so it's not the real he-man flats. More diversity, I guess.

TMink said...

I got some of the yellow strings for my daughter's guitar. They were on sale, and I thought she would like them.

Man are they flat sounding! The coating takes away any chime and the highest overtones to my ears. They sound like really, really OLD strings.



Mike (MJB Wolf) said...

Really? Hi-def pink strings for the old bass guitar. Interesting...
