Look, Ma! I have a Tumblr

And they said I wouldn't last. . . or maybe they wished it.

I do not see a woman playing guitar.
I see a killer with a weapon, mastering their deadly craft.

I do not hear a woman singing.
I hear the cry of an animal about to attack.

I do not perceive the person Annie Clark is.
I feel the raw power St. Vincent exudes, and I am overcome with emotion.

Well said.

This is FUN! (Picture #2 confirms it).  

12th Fret, Toronto:

  1. Where do I even start?!?
  2. See?  Told you this was fun.
  3. 1952 LES PAUL!   You can’t get any better than this…with the possible exception of a 1954 Stratocaster…or a 1950 Broadcaster…or a 1959 Flying V…or a 1959 ES-335 (with the too-big pickguard…that’s how you know it’s an early one!)…or (for me anyway…) a white 1961 Les Paul (SG) Custom (without the sideways vibrato, if possible).  Some people might also suggest a 1959 ‘burst Les Paul.  I don’t have any fundamental argument with your choice - there’s no question about the importance of this particular instrument….it’s just too heavy (in weight I mean) for me!  ;)
  4. Maybe not as cool as a ‘52 Les Paul…but still very pretty.  And a LOT less expensive.
  5. 1995 Rickenbacker 360V64.
  6. An ancient Epiphone arch top.  I don’t know my pre-Gibson Epis very well…so not sure what it is.  Trivia question:  do you know why the company is called Epiphone?
  7. Looks like a house.  A house where they boil things.  Apparently.
  8. Greco.  Pretty.  Heavy.  
  9. Trussart Tele.  Expensive, but lovely.
  10. 1995 Rickenbacker 360V64.
