Blanketing opinions that I'll probably regret soon.

Shit god damn, I just bought a Dobro.

Have you ever been around a boy who's just bought a new guitar? If you haven't, I feel sorry for you.

After an awkward business meeting, I wandered over to the Mission District here in San Fran. As soon as I entered the pawn shop, my eyes landed on it---a beautiful, dark-stained wooden Dobro. I didn't even notice the city's poor lined up to pawn off their meager possessions, the shotgun hanging over the back office door, or the various and sundry chainsaws and cheap jewelry scattered about. I just saw IT, and only it.

I played it hard for an hour before I plunked down the $250 of hard-earned cash. Now I'm in rare form. I haven't been in this good a mood in a while, and it's all because of an impulse buy.

The Dobro guitar was designed with a metal resonator so it would be loud enough to compete with the noise produced by drums. (Mind you, this was before the electric guitar.) And it's loud as fuck! My brother set up his drums and we played together. The guitar totally held its own, giving the percussion a run for its money.

I often feel sorry for people who don't play a musical instrument. What do they do after reading or masturbating get old? For me, I'll be playing my Dobro.

That is one beautiful guitar. Beautiful. I'm jealous.
 
Is it louder than H Street amplified yellers? Put that dobro to the real test, Bro.
 
How much would you pay to watch your brother's gf play this guitar naked? ANSWER ME!!
 
I think I just spooged in my pants. A little.
 
Klav: Yes. Yes it is.

Random Libertarian: This guitar is nothing unless played well, so the answer is nothing.
 
I for one will never get tired of masturbating.
 
You'll never get tired of masturbating to my blog??

Wow. Uh, thanks?
