Buffy Mouse Strings

I've been watching a lot of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. I'm up to season 5. That's 88 episodes so far.

I think it's funny how much they like a side light lighting the bottom of people's faces. After season 3 they seem less into that but it's still an interesting look.

They use a lot of wide takes where they've yanked out the dialog. That and over-the-shoulders where the dialog of the person who's face you don't see doesn't actually match what they were saying.

In big and important news about Strings: I wrote to Gibson and asked what my guitar was strung with. They wrote back:

Your Gibson guitar comes strung with Gibson Vintage Reissue "10s"- which means the high-E string is .010 inches in diameter. The low-E is .046 inches in diameter.

Which is interesting because my high strings feel... well... more buttery than 10's.

If you feel something -- something in the air -- about 9pm Eastern time tonight: that's the first rehearsal of Tyrannosaurus Mouse.

It's happening.
