    I asked all my musician friends to suggest music---someone with a range of talents like Joni Mitchell or Steely Dan (not my only favorites, but two individuals (Donald Fagan being the essential Steel in Steely, IMO) with an unworldly amount of music talent, knowledge, and ability .... all my musician friends were horrified to find that for years I had been listening to the same music, almost all at least ten years and much several decades old. None of them have yet managed to suggest anything better, though there have been a few decent bits.

    In these times of decaying morals and bad energy, i can understand that it might be hard for musicians to really reach the heights and depths and breadth that were achieved in the past .... but I ain't listening out of charity or pity. If you can't play it better than the old guys, I will listen to the old guys.

    When you've lost it all, that's when you finally realize life is beautiful.

    To many junkies don't get that opportunity. I have a friend who played baseball with my son in high school who lost his way and found heroin.

    He's lucky, he's back on the right track and I'm proud to call him a friend. It's a nightmare to watch what that garbage does to people first hand. He's a good kid.

    Sorry, moma left with friends to the OBX so I'm home unsupervised for the next few days :D

    I'm sure I've posted this cover before but I like this version of this song and it's the first song I learned to play on the guitar a hundred years ago :D


    The best era of rock n roll has passed us now.

    Drum corp is a niche event. There’s a certain kind of bravura athleticism in these performances that I find compelling, and similar to sport.

    The music is pretty good---I wish I had a quality recording---but the dancing completely turns me off.

    Thank you for sharing.

    ^ The show is their interpretation of Edward Hopper’s Nighthawks. They resolve the painting perfectly at the end.

    I make no bones about the fact that I think AC/DC is by far the best rock and roll band ever :D
    These guys are still producing amazing music.


    This is pure rock-n-roll

    Angus and his over frets especially in Jail Break just kill me.

    Joanna Newsome is an acquired taste for many. I liked her from the get go. As a lyricist she’s not Joni Mitchell but she’s close.

    I didn't know "acquired taste" translated as "hideous piercing screeching making your ear drums bleed." :D Good thing, after the damage is permanent, she sounds okay.

    Just kidding. She is one of those with a style which must be accepted as unique---folk-Bjork, sort of. Some other influence I cannot place right now .... some other plaintive, sort of squeaky singer/songwriter. I will probably check out other of her stuff.
