Aaron Rodgers Is One Of The Best Sound Engineers Anywhere To Be Found

Aaron Rodgers Is One Of The Best Sound Engineers Anywhere To Be Found
A few years back we were able to put out an amazing album, that is still being discovered by many far and wide. This album is filled with adventure, motorcycles, good times and all penned by one of the most standup folks I know, none other than Billy Don Burns. Another part of the tale that most folks rarely hear about is one of the players and engineers, that is a quiet man behind the scenes. This impresario is none other than Aaron Rodgers. His guitar work is above and beyond, along with his mastery behind the knobs of the recording console. If you really want to get to work and have a great recording that will stand the test of time and reach the upper echelons of recognition, here is all the proof that you need. Congrats to both of yall for being hombres and true professionals.

What Is More Valuable, Two Starbucks Drinks Or A New Album?

What Is More Valuable, Two Starbucks Drinks Or A New Album?,  Ask Noel Gallagher
"People are more than willing to sit in a coffee shop and spend a tenner on two coffees and talk about the weather to their friends, and that coffee will last 45 minutes. Yet they will physically get angry at you for asking you to buy an album for a tenner which will last a lifetime and might even tell you something about yourself and might even change your life."  -- Noel Gallagher

Custom Leather Camera Straps From Rusty Knuckles

Custom Leather Camera Straps From Rusty Knuckles
Every time a piece of leather is cut, new ideas come together. The resilience of the material, lends itself to a myriad of uses and ways it can be stamped, cut, stitched or lashed together. For a good while we have been plotting on some Camera Straps, as a few customers have been asking on them, along with other key items that will slowly emerge this year from us. In the back of our minds, we always try to think through what new products to offer, and ones that will also directly link back to the bands on the label. Great photos and great bands, go hand in hand. Now we can also support the photographers far and wide with the same quality leather found on our guitar straps, just reconfigured to work with most DSLR cameras. Go out and make life happen!

Custom Leather Guitar Strap For A Martin Guitar, From Rusty Knuckles

Custom Leather Guitar Strap For A Martin Guitar, From Rusty Knuckles
When a custom order for a guitar strap comes in, we generally never know the full details of what type of instrument it is intended for. But when we receive photos such as this one from an elated customer, about our craftsmanship and gracing a beautiful Martin Guitar, we can't help but smile with a huge grin from ear to ear. Martin Guitars were established in 1833 and it is our goal with every custom product made to have that piece outlast it's owner and to be passed on to the next generation. We strive to keep Rusty Knuckles surging forward for decades to come.

A Big Giant Sword And One Man's Craftsmanship Spark New TV Series On Discovery

A Big Giant Sword And One Man's Craftsmanship Spark New TV Series On Discovery
Science fiction and the realm of fantasy within pop culture and more specifically video games are designed to break down boundaries into a new form of reality. One element that we earth bound mortals work with daily and that we still don't have a solid explanation for is the force known as gravity. The reason that gravity comes into play when speaking of sci fi is that we have a new craftsman about to launch on Discovery with his colossal swords. Their design and build is well put together but the size and weight create some very interesting visual tension about how a weapon should perform. Do yourself a favor and watch some of the youtube clips as Michael Cthulthu has built his reputation around fire and steel.
