Article of the Week - The Red Special

The Red Special is an electric guitar owned by Queen's lead guitarist Brian May and custom-built by him and his father, Harold. The Red Special is also sometimes named in reviews as the Fireplace or the Old Lady, both nicknames used by May when referring to the guitar.

A guitar that would define Brian's signature style, it was purposely designed to feedback after he saw Jeff Beck live playing his guitar in front of the amp and getting different sounds just by moving the guitar. He wanted an instrument that was going to be alive and interact with him and the air around him. He has used it on Queen albums and in live performances since the band's advent in the early 1970s. The name Red Special came from the reddish-brown colour the guitar attained after being stained and painted with numerous layers of Rustins' plastic coating. The name Fireplace is a reference to the fact that the wood used to make the neck came from an 18th-century fireplace mantel.

Unlike the primary instruments of most musicians, the original Red Special was built by May along with his father. They began to work on the guitar in August 1963. The neck was constructed from wood from an 18th-century fireplace mantel that a friend of the family was about to throw away. The neck was hand-shaped into the desired form; this was difficult because of the age and quality of the wood. According to May, there are two wormholes in the neck of the guitar.

The neck was finished with a 24-fret oak fingerboard. Each of the position inlays was hand shaped from a mother-of-pearl button. May decided to position them in a personal way: two dots at the 7th and 19th fret and three at the 12th and 24th.

 The body was made from oak from an old table, blockboard (strips of softwood sandwiched between two plywood skins) and mahogany veneer; the final result was technically a semi-acoustic guitar-the central block is glued to the sides and covered with two mahogany sheets to give it the appearance of a solid-body guitar.

Number one!

Fourteen teams piled into Camp Bar on Monday night to watch the Bears surprisingly win and to get in on a lil trivia action. Most if not all teams got in on all the jabs towards my reading skills, or lack there of and I fumbled over the third question of the night. Things got a little rowdy towards the end of the night when we had to move into a sudden death round as there was a three way tie for first place. Lets take a look to see how it panned out:

Season veterans guessing 3 shy of the correct answer, C, E, A, D, B - Musical Notes or the Answer to Q3 came out on top tonight and took home a first place $30 bar tab. Well done team!

Second place and a $20 bar tab went to Not a Fire Truck.

Finally, let's hear it for Jay Cutlers Little Ditka for best team name tonight.

Everyone in the crowd got a good laugh - even the Bears fans.

Till next time Camp Bar!

Until next time Milwaukee, drink while you think...

Article of the Week - Antilia

Antilia is the name of a twenty-seven floor personal home in South Mumbai belonging to businessman Mukesh Ambani, the billionaire Chairman of Reliance Industries. There will be 600 full-time staff to maintain the residence, which was reported in the Indian Media to be the most expensive home in the world. It has been described as the "Taj Mahal of 21st century India".
The home will house Ambani, wife Nita, their three children and Ambani's mother.

ndian media frequently reported that Antilia is the world's most expensive home costing between 1 and 2 billion US$. Thomas Johnson, director of marketing at architecture firm Will and Hirsch Bedner Associates that was consulted with by Reliance during building floor plan design, was cited by Forbes Magazine as estimating the cost of the residence at nearly $2 billion. In June 2008, a Reliance spokesman told the New York Times that it will cost $50–$70 million to build. Upon completion in 2010, media reports again speculated that, due to increasing land prices in the area, the tower may now be worth as much as US$1 billion.

Some Indians are proud of the "ostentatious house," while others see it as "shameful in a nation where many children go hungry." Dipankar Gupta, a sociologist at New Delhi's Jawaharlal Nehru University, opined that "such wealth can be inconceivable" not only in Mumbai, "home to some of Asia's worst slums," but also in a nation with 42 percent of the world's underweight children younger than five. Recently Ratan Tata said that "It's sad Mukesh Ambani lives in such opulence".

MNT > MNF (Unless The Pack Is Playing, Obvs)

Quizmistress Mal was back at Camp Bar after an 8 day too long trip to Vegas for work. Eleven teams competed for bar tabs on Monday night while simultaneously keeping up with their fantasy footballs scores and drinking some adult beverages.

First and second place came down to a sudden death round, but it was ultimately Rest In Peace G-Baby who took home the $30 bar tab, just guessing $5 shy of the answer from the Hilton Hotel themed question.

Second place tonight and a $20 bar tab went to I Didn't Know There Were Switch Hitters in Football. 

Not going home empty handed, great job team!

Last but not least, let's give it up for We Had a Filthy Team Name Picked Out, But Our Boss Showed Up at the Bar for Best Team Name.
