Guitar preamps at El Bunker. An ENGL 570 (as far as we know this the first and only ENGL 570 preamp available in Mexico) and a Marshall JMP-1 thru a Marshall EL34 100/100 power amp. Both feature four channels and are very versatile. From vintage classic to ultra modern tones to super hi gain this will get you there.
Top Ten Books That Would Be On Your Syllabus If You Taught X 101 (examples: YA fantasy 101, feminist literature 101, magic in YA 101, classic YA lit 101, world-building 101)
This is such a clever top ten! I love it. I had a hard time determining what the subject matter was going to be, but I think I’ve settled on Science Fiction. I think I’ve read more books in this genre than any other one so here it goes.
Top Ten Books that would be included in my Intro to Sci-Fi ‘course’
1. Frankenstein by Mary Shelley: For the classics and foundation era
4. & 5. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins & 1984 by George Orwell: For discussions on utopia v. dystopia and big brother.
6. Glow by Amy Kathleen Ryan: Space travel, survival of the human race, and essential questions over person hood and what’s right and what’s wrong
7. Legend by Marie Lu: with probably brief mentions or reading from the Divergent series (Veronica Roth) and Dualed/Divided duology (Elsie Chapman), we’ll discuss what is going on that makes the United States want to break up and fight each other
8. Rot & Ruin by Jonathan Maberry: It’s not sci fi without some zombies.
10. Research Project! Just kidding maybe a seminar of sorts. #10 will be dedicated to why the hell does the future look so bleak. Dystopian features abound, with references to Blood Red Road (Moira Young), Wither (Lauren DeStefano), and The Testing (Joelle Charbonneau), among others (literally all the books).
Well, this was fun! What did you think? Would you take this class? Do you have any suggested reading to add?
