How Will You Spend Your Stimulus Check?
« on: April 28, 2008, 12:32:19 AM »
Some are saving it, some are spending it.  I'm thinking of a new electric guitar pedal, made in the USA by Toadworks.  The inimitable PHANTASM Dynamic Phaser pedal:


I have a contact who works at a music store and can pass on a small employee discount instead of paying full retail.  So.  I guess that's it then.

That's how I am going to save our economy.

A guitar effects pedal.

I may have to buy two pedals to save the country.  Toadworks recently worked on a project with Howard Leese (guitar player of Heart so long ago) that resulted in the BARRACUDA pedal, an authentic, accurate reproduction of the custom-made analog flanger unit used in the 1977 monster hit Barracuda.  Not many are aware that a special one of a kind electronic flanger was used in that song.  Wasn't off the shelf.  That's why your 1978 Electro-Harmonix Electric Mistress Flanger/Filter Matrix pedal couldn't nail it.

(Here's an old joke:  What's the best Zeppelin song ever?  Answer: Barracuda by Heart. Har Har Har.)

Anyway.  Stimulus check. Guitar pedals all the way.  Any errant change:  chocolate milkshakes, from Steak & Shake.  Eternal teenager I be.  At least when I am on a journey to the center of my mind.

I am already a slave to the nation ... mine is only going to allow me to come to the surface to catch a breath of air before I go under again.

Well darn.  Guess you have to have filed to receive a check.  When I learned to spell "EXTENSION" I decided the word would become mine, and I would use it.  No check for me.  By the time we've filed, and payed for 2007, there won't be any money left to send me my fair share.  The economy will no longer need to be stimulated.  You just have to love the government.  Imagine giving me my money back.  pfffft

Here's what I'm going to do for you, Itty Bit.  (Kids, don't try this at home.  It's highly illegal.  Might even be a felony.  Admin helped Charles break the spine of the FCC, so we're living on the edge here anyway, but that doesn't mean we want all of you in the klinker.)

I'm going to go down to my local U.S. Post Office and fill in a CHANGE OF ADDRESS card for China.  I will put YOUR address as China's new address.

When admin's check arrives, you get your purty self on out there and have a good time - courtesy of admin.

(Warning:  you may receive some other stuff, like Top Secret missile defense plans from Bill Clinton, or a Return for Repair flute from David Carradine, etc.  Go ahead and sign for them.)

I told my wife to rip it up and trash it, or send it back and say "no thanks". It's got this whole "blood money" vibe, and when they ask for it back, I'll be proud to say I didn't take it.

Yeah, I should probably call them. Because I thought even if I owed them money it was not supposed to interfere with the stimulus check.
And I owe them money because I filed electronically, and I didn't claim my daughter because her father from another planet (I mean state) claims her. But the IRS actually altered my forms after I filed! They sent me extra money back for that last year and now they want it back ...or something, grr.

It's like getting a cheap ring from a bad boyfriend. Yeah honey, I know I have made your life miserable, and I keep going out and killing people, but here, take this and go shopping. Buy yourself some nice sunglasses to cover up that nasty black eye. Everything is OK.

Three hundred dollars what a joke. How bout they call off their war for a week, how much is 3.5 billion divided by the population of the US? Shit, I can't even count that high.
