    If anyone has an hour to kill, here’s a pretty fun documentary about the rise and fall of the Italian Western. Sergio Leone’s trilogy with Clint Eastwood is required viewing for any film fan, but this genre has so much more to offer.
    Also, the music is pretty much always great!

    I was a huge Johnny Rivers fan after I heard "Secret Agent Man". One of the reasons I always wanted a 335.

    Yes sir! When I made the transition from cassettes to cd’s, this was the first disc I bought. It’s one of my all time favorite movies too.

    One of my all time fave movies too.

    Hombre Secreto might have been my first conscious exposure to surf music as anything other than music I had just heard somewhere in the background as a kid.

    My first exposure to surf music was probably the video to Dick Dale’s “Nitro” on an episode of Beavis and Butthead. Then Miserlou in Pulp Fiction.

    Yep. I don't need or want a 335 since I got something better: my Panther!

    A far superior axe.

    It’s important to share. :)

    I'm betting that the "no turn speed broil" caught fire a lot...
