Well, how did I get here?

Yeah I'll definitely be going to one of the shows for sure. Kinda bummed Steve Kimock didn't get an invite but it will be good. Not sure which show I'm gonna shoot for. I think the old school snail mail order is going on right now.

I'll post them if I find them

Oh yeah I remember Derek. Interesting fella. I think I still have clips from the show we did at that yoga shelter. Derek fucking killed it on bass. The rest of us sucked ass.

Yeah the opener was Ghost of a Saber tooth Tiger (Sean Lennon's band) who are actually really good from what Ive heard of them. Apparently they got held up at the Canadian border. I didn't know what to expect from Beck live, but wow. It was absolutely amazing. Best show i've seen in a long time. The sound at the Fox is also stellar.

Wow! Kleinbl00, I'm not sure what your day job is but you should probably quit it. Unless, of course, it has to do with sound engineering. I particularly like the double guitar at the end. I'm reminded of a Gossard/McCready guitar outtro. I think we actually tinkered around with that idea but scrapped it. Thanks for resurrecting it!

Hip Hop DEFINITELY influenced a ton outside of music. I watch a channel on youtube that shows thousands of hours of commercials from different years. If you watch say, commercials from 1986, and then watch commercials from 1991, the advertising message is totally Hip-hoppified. It's hilarious. Every company from every industry wanted to rap to you with cool, carefree 'tude.

That would have been great if you guys polled the restaurant to see what the most influential American music band was. I can't seem to get these 3 bands out of my head when I think of that question: Velvet Underground - The Pixies - Nirvana. And Talking Heads. And The Band. I guess if it's agreed that The Beatles are the most influential band ever, you'd have to go with a Motown band seeing how Motown was a massive influence on them. Paul even said so. As far as American Psycho goes, I'd have to watch it again and read the book, but I always subscribed to the theory that everything actually happened. Think about when and where it takes place: Wall Street, late 80's, booming economy, electronics boom, rise of the superficial yuppie etc. All of Patrick's friends are all the same. Calling each other by the wrong name because it doesn't matter. Human connection is lost. The Real Estate agent just wants to sell the apartment, so she disposes of the bodies. The lawyer probably didn't have dinner with the same 'Paul Allen.' His killings go unnoticed because everybody is wrapped up in themselves. The movie's open for interpretation so obviously anything is possible. I just don't want to think that he's just crazy and it's all in his mind. It cheapens the movie in a way.

Dude's great. Seems like he plays out in Ann Arbor every night. A couple weeks ago I had dinner at the Black Pearl and sure enough there's Laith set up playing Garcia songs.

This sounds great! I never really liked the abrasiveness of the synth...but now I do! I also never really liked my guitar at the end...now I do! Knowing a dude with mixing chops is priceless. Kleinbl00, you're my hero. (Like how Cameron Frye says it in the pool scene).

Yep. Gonna catch them for New Years at MSG. Should be crazy. Also seeing Antibalas the night before at a club in the West Village. Should make for a decent way to bid farewell to 2013.

I really miss the 90's a lot. I definitely under appreciated it when it was in real time.

bgood79  ·  3843 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: Collaboration Part 3

Yeah mine was one of those 'the spinning wheel seems to be spinning a long time. I think I'll restart it.' Then when it restarted, it was the OS Lion install screen. It couldn't locate the hard drive. Good thing I backed my shit up.....on April 17th 2012. The lesson here is use Time Machine for constant back ups. Now I have to go RE-download terabytes upon terabytes of porn. I'm in a bad way right now.

And still going strong. This is exactly like the time you asked me if I'd picked up the new 98 Degrees CD. Much to your chagrin, I told you 'nah, I'm trying to ride out this whole boy band thing without listening to any of it.'

Infectious grooves from Fela. I just bought the Fela Kuti box set curated by Ginger Baker and after listening to it, Ginger may have slipped into my Top 3 drummers of all time spot. I'm sure he's elated by that acknowledgment.

Whatever you do, do not name him Seven or Soda. I reserved those for my future kids. Off limits

Youtube wormholes are easy and dangerous to fall into. Someone has a channel of hours and hours of commercials from the 80's and 90's. Click the playlist and boom, you suddenly want a Nerf Turbo, pogo ball, and bubble tape.

bgood79  ·  3910 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: A Playboy Interview With Miles Davis

found it It's from 1988 in Germany.

bgood79  ·  3910 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: A Playboy Interview With Miles Davis

Oh man. He didn't do a ton of interviews but they were all great. I recently saw one where he was drawing a sketch in the middle of being interviewed. The guy just did whatever he wanted. Maybe that's the definition of 'cool.'

bgood79  ·  3915 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: Sports Fandom and why we bask in others’ achievements

Yep. That was actually at the World Series game 4 last year at Comerica where we were about to get swept. VERY bold move to taunt hometown fans in the men's bathroom line. Drunk San Francisco fans turned to me and said 'We're kicking your ass!' then I said 'WE have nothing to do with anything that is happening on the field.' And their response was a snarky 'Hell of a city you got here.' Apparently they didn't get what I was driving at. So then they were fed to the drunker, madder, tougher Tiger fans and they probably didn't make it back to San Francisco.

I'll be there. I propose that we all explore the abandoned train station late night, scooby doo style. insomniasexx you're obviously Daphne...or Thelma.

Oh man that looks insane. But I get the feeling that if we left right now, we may get there in time to score the last of the Chuck Magione records.

Robin Thicke has been with the same woman since he was 16. He's just trying to sell sex and people are buying it. Heck Salt N' Pepa did it. The easiest thing to do is ignore it and just listen to Alan Thicke instead.

Yeah I actually mentioned that to our friends from Iowa across the table. I don't think they knew what I was talking about. Or I had a booger hanging. Or both.
