    Well, this would the time of year for watching through old 'horror' films.

    I'll admit Brooks does have 2-3 noteworthy duds, and even some of his better ones are a bit sparse in the laughs department. Aside from the ones you've listed, I'd say Blazing Saddles is a must-see, the Producers is pretty solid (if you're not easily offended), while History of the World, Silent Movie, and Robin Hood: Men in Tights all tie for having a few good laughs. The others, I wouldn't bother unless you're really invested.

    Since we're on the topic of films (about time, I haven't seen a discussion this lively about films), has anyone watched a Brian Yuzna or Stuart Gordon film? I would love to check out Re-Animator, as that's one of their more well-acclaimed and better known flicks (it also is a pretty interesting take on a H.P. Lovecraft's book, which these 2 directors are a fan of).

    It looks pretty typical for an old school ev conversion. EV technology has progressed quite a bit since then though, namely the batteries. You can get lighter higher capacity batteries than a lead acid battery nowadays. Not to mention cleaner ways to install the system due to things getting smaller and lighter.

    So, I own one of these (pic off of Guitar Center becuase my phone camera does not like that finish at all), I really want to put a roasted maple neck on it. To me it seems like a neck swap is really simple, but one person I know who has experience with this sorta stuff told me it's way more difficult than it seems. Even though 4 screws seems very simple to me... Has anyone here done a guitar neck swap and have an opinion on this?

    (Yes I know the neck would cost as much as the guitar is worth... Just ignore that issue)

    Also, being me I mentally had to one up my ideas when someone else told it's too difficult for me, so now I want to build a kit guitar. Thoughts on that too?..

    Obligatory plug for guitar discussion.

    Never done a neck swap, but provided you’re good with your hands it shouldn’t be hard. Just make sure the scale length is correct (most aftermarket strat necks should work).

    Kits guitars don’t look to hard. I’m planning out a build on one this winter.

    I’ve heard www.solomusicgear.com ‘s necks are quite good, you might want to check out what they have. Warmoth is also a solid choice, so don’t feel obligated to stock fender necks. Sweet finish btw.

    Yeah, that's the website I was looking at, I am seriously considering a LP kit with P90's.

    Here is my guitar collection with 1 of my 2 pianos. Heavy instagram filtering is the only way I could get the strat's finish to come out.

    I’m considering either the HH Jazzmaster they make (or thefretwire’s HSH) or possibly one of the flame LPs. They look quite high quality.

    I’m not sure the neck swap is worth the money, but it’s ultimately your guitar.

    Oh it is defiently is not worth the money, one of those necks cost as much as a used HSS Mexican strat. But it's worth more than the money to me.

    I just wanted to play Uno, and I don't even have a deck of Uno in my house. What is this garbage?
