Well, Esquire and GQ and Playboy and Maxim and such are all considered "Men's lifestyle" magazines.

Cosmo is weird and very warped. It's like it's catering to a certain population of women who seek to appeal to patriarchal ideals, but their interpretation of those ideals is through this lens that makes the result come out like a print version of a funhouse mirror, warped and distorted and barely recognizable.

I have an Epi LP, a Schecter Hellraiser C1FR, and I'm in the process of hotrodding my favorite- an old Peavey tracer that I've spent the year hotrodding.

I got the body and neck for free from an old Native American bluesman I know, and the first set of hardware for $45. Two nameless pickups and a Spyder tremolo that was missing several parts.

Filled in the cavity to put a Wilkinson Tremolo in, I've got some Lace Alumitones, and I'm painting it snow white with a geometric/abstract design of my own on the horns in black.

I play through a Peavey Vypyr 15 and a Fender Superchamp XD. Hopefully I'll get something nicer- but you'd be surprised how good those little practice amps can sound if you mic them well.

I'm jealous of that Superchamp. I really want a tube amp. Played through a couple in the local music store and the difference is really noticeable.

I'm currently taking a hiatus from guitar, but I play an LTD Deluxe EC-1000 w/ EMG active pickups, playing through a Marshall MG-30FX with either a Voodoo Labs SuperFuzz pedal or a GarageTones tremolo pedal.

Hopefully soon I'll be switching out the EMGs for humbuckers. I learned to play jazz so high gain active picks aren't that great. Or maybe I'll just try to learn to play metal again.
