Ugly or not?

Most people won't notice or care about the things we think about-like selling a home I've discovered my concerns and issues with my house were never the buyers-they'd see other stuff that needed attention. People mostly just hear the drummer-but we can delight in our own taste though. Most of the posters on DW are butt ugly but seems we've all managed relationships so I wouldn't be casting stones at ugly drums ROFL-flame suit on.

I like solid black and I like sparkle wraps, but I'm not a fan of mixing the two. However, I think that particular finish would really pop under stage lights. Regarding your question about nostalgia, one classic finish that many rave about that I think is hideous is Top Hat and Cane.

It's better than plain black, that's just me. But, the "flecks" look like actual paper confetti. I don't think I really dig that. Just a regular black sparkle? I guess would look better. I don't really find it ugly and in need of being turned into firewood though :rolleyes:

Wasn't this an old Rogers finish? The Rogers version was much more colorful.

Check this out, 1962 Rogers Swing Time:

Pooping on anything Mardi Gras-seems a bunch of party poopers. I hate to do this but I evoke GruntersDad's hammer power to establish the Mardi Gras finish as "fantastic" in DW lore (let it be written let it be done-lightening bolts and sparks fly-lots of smoke now settling) -so now a fact with impunity and any opinions to the contrary are forbidden and just silly-cause it's fantastic now. Seems a good compromise-I didn't pick "beautiful" just "fantastic" which you can be ugly and be fantastic. Simple solution problem solved-I should be a politician LOL.

The Top Hat and Cane wrap IS hideous though, lol. 2 right hands? C'mon Ludwig!

The only saving grace is that the graphics are over WMP.

It reminds me of dark, awful smelling, beer and cigarette stained linoleum floor tile, after a wild NYE party.

The confetti is stuck to the stale, dried beer.

But other than that, you quite like it ;)

It’s basically a plain black with a few coloured flecks, it’s nice, and it must shine on stage. I prefer the twilight sparkle black Gretsch that Bo Eder had at a time though.
If some of you judge the Mardi Gras plain ugly, I wonder which adjective must be used for something like that! >

Hm, dislike the red one, kinda like the blue one. The red one kinda looks like a murder scene, blood on white walls. :oops:
