Celebrating an endorsement between G-Man Music andrepparttar fiery axe-makers known as Minarik Guitars, Scott G (The G-Man) reviewsrepparttar 110065 Minarik Inferno X-treme.

Fromrepparttar 110066 Telecaster torepparttar 110067 Flying V torepparttar 110068 Iceman torepparttar 110069 Warlock, some guitar designs are forever branded on our consciousness, and now there's a new one:repparttar 110070 Minarik Inferno X-treme. The body shape erupts in furious fingers of flame. If ever there was a guitar design destined to igniterepparttar 110071 imagination of young players, especially boys and girls who want to rawk, this is it.

Not thatrepparttar 110072 Inferno X-treme lacks subtlety. With scientifically placed tone chambers, this instrument can sing sweetly if that's what you desire. Or, it can live up to its appearance and enable you to carve sonic craters inrepparttar 110073 parking lot.

Although this guitar has a look that will inspire thousands of preteen statements alongrepparttar 110074 lines of "Mom, that'srepparttar 110075 one I want," I suspect that tons of established players will find it useful inrepparttar 110076 studio or onrepparttar 110077 road because of its delicate balance, sleek feel, and stunning versatility. (And besides,repparttar 110078 cunningly crafted guitar is also available in a more traditional body shape.)

"So, what'srepparttar 110079 story on Minarik Guitars?" I can hear you ask. Asrepparttar 110080 designer ofrepparttar 110081 B.C. Rich Goddess Warlock and several other noteworthy models, Marc Minarik already has a legacy inrepparttar 110082 business. Now heading up his own company, Minarik hasrepparttar 110083 goal of fusing quality workmanship with visually exciting design concepts.

The Bingo Renaissance

Written by Online Bingo


Little old ladies in slippers, playing for pennies and cents in a converted community hall is no longerrepparttar reality of bingo. The game has in recent years and now more than ever undergone a rebirth in its popularity and status and now looks set to boom inrepparttar 110064 coming years. Inrepparttar 110065 UK alone, bingo comprises a total annual stake of around £1.1 billion. Itís now big business and not just forrepparttar 110066 bingo halls. Customs and Excise collect around £115 million in duty incurred by bingo each year. However,repparttar 110067 sun has not always shone onrepparttar 110068 bingo industry. In 1974,repparttar 110069 game seemed to hit its peak in popularity. It was widely seen as a cheap and cheerful way to provide mass entertainment. However,repparttar 110070 advent of television seemed to cripplerepparttar 110071 game and its popularity fell dramatically untilrepparttar 110072 end ofrepparttar 110073 90s. Yet for allrepparttar 110074 doom and gloom,repparttar 110075 trend seems to be rising again. Numbers are holding and profits are increasing. This new surge of popularity has been partly due torepparttar 110076 vigorous marketing campaigns as executed byrepparttar 110077 bingo companies. Television and literature campaigns for bingo are now being promoted in Europe and companies are attempting to reinvigoraterepparttar 110078 game buy adapting and modernising some ofrepparttar 110079 antiquated lingo that seemed to keep it stuck to its past - 21,repparttar 110080 Key torepparttar 110081 door, lucky legs 11, etc. Bill Clinton, Elle MacPherson, Damon Hill and Jade Jagger are all regular players ofrepparttar 110082 game and no doubt have contributed to its popularity and rebirth. Many however disagree. To avid players, it is notrepparttar 110083 glitz and glamour ofrepparttar 110084 game that is so appealing; it is ratherrepparttar 110085 warm, social aspect that seems to firerepparttar 110086 hearts of bingo players aroundrepparttar 110087 world. For regular players, it is a safe opportunity to socialise, have fun and experiencerepparttar 110088 thrill of gambling whilst being surrounded and protected by a friendly atmosphere and a hopefully humorous bingo caller prevailing over all. The UKís Chancellor Gordon Brownís recent proposition to cutrepparttar 110089 duty on bingo and replace it with a tax onrepparttar 110090 operatorís income has proved popular with players and investors alike. The investment bank Lehman Brothers claim that this duty removal would increase bingo profits by 30%. However, for allrepparttar 110091 celebrity icons and national edicts proclaimed onrepparttar 110092 game, what is undeniable is that worldwiderepparttar 110093 appeal of bingo does seem to be most prevalent amongst working class, single females. What is also interesting to note is thatrepparttar 110094 bingo promoters themselves are not too interested in marketingrepparttar 110095 game to those who fall out of this category. Quality and not quantity seems to berepparttar 110096 name ofrepparttar 110097 game as far as they are concerned. They see it as more likely and realistic to entice existing players into spending a little more on their visits. The fact that so many bingo players are single females is certainly advantageous torepparttar 110098 industry, seeing as this social group is becoming more and more populous as well as wealthier and liberated.
