A new song from FXhummel1:

Awesome stuff.  Multiple vocal tracks, piano separate, actual microphone… Is FX getting ready to record an album to put up on iTunes? I hope so.

With 15 minutes left of father’s day, i’ll squeeze this in:

I didn’t get to spend today with my dad, but my sister did so it’s all good.  I’ll see him in a few weeks.

Hope all the dad’s that read the blog had a great day.


Back on July 1st, 2009 a 30-year-old man distraught over a divorce was booked on suspicion of murder after he walked into a Simi Valley, CA dental office and allegedly shot and killed his wife and wounded three others.

Jamie Peredes allegedly walked into the office and began firing an SKS semiautomatic assault rifle.

SKS ASSAULT rifle?  Wow I didn’t know they made those with select fire :roll:

Full Story at the L.A. Times – HERE

One of the other ladies that was working there (Lydia Carranza) managed to survive a gunshot to the chest.  According to the recent story on NBC L.A. the bullet entered her breast and deflated the implant.  The bullet fragments were millimeters away from her heart and her vital organs.

According to Wikipedia, Breast implants are either filled with saline or silicon gel.  Although it sounds unbelievable that a sack full of a liquid similar to water could stop a 7.62x39mm round, if you have ever shot at bottles of water you know how it can slow down a bullet, and destroy the integrity of it.

I believe this a lot more than the bullet proof fat story from a few days ago.  If the gunman indeed carried out the shooting with an SKS, Due to the high energy of the round, I would imagine that Lydia Carranza was either quite a distance away from the shooter, or even got hit due to a ricochet or another indirect method.  It seems improbable that she would have lived if it was a direct hit at close range.  Who knows though… stranger things have happened.


Hoplophobia (pronounced /ˌhɒplɵˈfoʊbiə/), from the Greek hoplon, or weapon, is defined as the “fear of firearms”

A Manchester-by-the-Sea man who allegedly had a cache of weapons in his home told police he was preparing for Armageddon, authorities said.

Armageddon? SHTF?  OMG OMG and he had a stockpile of dried and canned goods as well? and medicine!  Last time I checked it was called “Being Prepared”

Gregory D. Girard, 45, was arrested Tuesday night for allegedly storing several tear gas grenades and explosive pepper ball projectiles. He was also charged with the illegal possession of four police batons.

Police batons are illegal devices?  Considering you can buy them off the internet and get them shipped straight to your home I highly doubt it.

In addition to the grenade-type devices, police found approximately 20 weapons, including high-powered rifles, shotguns, and handguns. All of the firearms were purchased and registered legally within the past 10 months, McKiel said.

So… why was he arrested???

Police also found a large collection of camouflage clothing, knives, bulletproof vests, helmets, and eight pairs of handcuffs in Girard’s home. They also discovered stockpiles of medicine and non-perishable foods. An illegal indoor shooting range was also found in the attic, police said.

To be fair, an indoor attic shooting range is pretty stupid (not that I wouldn’t like one with the proper ventilation and safety measures to make sure no shots go where they shouldn’t).  Sounds like it was just a makeshift one where he shot at a ballistic plate (see video below)


The video is laughable.

Looks like the cause of the arrest is “Spousal Hoplophobia” :P.  He is better off without her.

He has an impressive collection.  Hope this all blows over for him and he gets his guns and freedom back.

“Yes, I was told that the gun had to match the mixer.”

valheru21 off AR15.com built the above AR-15 for his wife.  Apparently the color is “lavender” not purple. :D

If that’s what it takes for some girls to enjoy shooting, it’s a small price to pay!
