nothing yet, just doing laundry and thinking about watching police squad. i did get a new turntable for my rec room so might shoot some pool but then i have to find somewhere else to put my gigantic mixer.

i want to listen to roky and devo and some old soul, smokey robinson, 5 stairsteps, friends of distinction, etc.

Posted: Jan 1, 2008 7:59 am | Edited by: Jack Stands
Fuck that.

Paid on Friday
Pockets a jinglin'
Then you see the lights
You get all tinglin'
'Cause you're cruisin' with a six...
Posted: Jan 1, 2008 8:02 am
Fuck that.

no way baby....

my new years was:

may the good lord
shine a light on you
make every song you sing
your favorite tune

its my fave stones song. i'm old, ok? when i hear "shine a light," i am transported back to a time when life was easy (i was 15...)
Posted: Jan 1, 2008 8:13 am
I'm going upstairs to throw on some flatt & scruggs.
I don't care what you say. Some of that shit can get faster than speed metal. And Mandolin is harder than you think. Sure, it's an upside-down guitar, but try it sometime. I dare you.
Posted: Jan 1, 2008 8:16 am
I am listening to my vacation being over in like 25 1/2 hours.

Not as much fun if you count it down.

Anyone in Austin wanna go sightseeing tommorwow?> call me 512-abc-defg!

Fuck that though!
Posted: Jan 1, 2008 8:21 am
I don't care what you say. Some of that shit can get faster than speed metal.

Me and my dad went and saw Bill Monroe in the mid 80's. Some of my punk rocker friends ragged on me at the time but I was like "Fuck dude. Those guys played faster than any thrash band I've ever seen".
Posted: Jan 1, 2008 8:24 am
Dude, have you heard some of the reeeeally fast versions of the "Orange Blossom Special"? Fucking insane.
Posted: Jan 1, 2008 8:25 am
Duff Mckagan of GnR just "called" me but I don't think it was him!

Maybe putting my phone # in an anonymous internet website was a mistake?!? Maybe holding my phone near my reproductive organs is stupid?!?

I'm like panicking!
Posted: Jan 1, 2008 8:25 am
I got one somewhere. Hang on.
Posted: Jan 1, 2008 8:40 am
Couldn't find it. Not as fast and insane, but still great, the osborne brothers. Good shit.

Posted: Jan 1, 2008 8:42 am
Me and my dad went and saw Bill Monroe in the mid 80's

i was walking around new orleans one night w/ a bunch of people and we saw a poster for bill monroe at the house of blues. it was spontaneous and even though we hate the venue, for bill monroe, no problem! it was pricey, but for bill monroe, no problem!

amazing pickers those bluegrass guys.

i'm really glad i got to see bill monroe
Posted: Jan 1, 2008 8:45 am
Y'all ever hear the crazy story about the dude breaking into his place and smashing his mandolins in the fireplace? Gibsondudes rebuilt them from splinters.
Bill was great, even if he was kind of a dick.
Got mad at Ricky Scaggs (when he was 8) for showing him up at the Opry.
Posted: Jan 1, 2008 8:51 am
Dammit, I love Doc Watson.

brian lee

Bryan had struggled for more than 2 decades to make a living in music. Now 64, Lee came from Two Rivers, a blues collar factory town in northeast Wisconsin.

"As a blind person I put my faith in the Lord everyday. You have to believe in something to carry forward. A lot of people have let me down over the years because it is easy to take advantage of a blind person. In the end, it is faith in God that gets you along the way and practically, I put my faith on the line every time I cross the street." " As you get older; blues is something that you get better at simply because of your age. You understand the music more and you learn to appreciate the old cats a whole lot more"

This is beautiful. No matter how old you are... or aren't... this song should kill you every time.

I'm gonna go listen to it right now. And maybe cry my eyes out. Or maybe not.

Hell yeah. Even a mid tempo tune like 'Heavy Traffic Ahead' has got a ton a blazing stuff on it. Learning to play the mandolin ain't all that hard but learning to play it right is.

A thing I found interesting at the Bill Monroe thing as that it was an outdoor concert and the weed smoke smell was thicker in the air at any rock concert I've ever been at. I told pops I was gonna go wander around and check out the scene and he said "If someone offers-don't take any crooked, hand rolled cigarettes. They are illegal drugs." I guess dad didn't know I had more than an idea of what marijuana was.

I'm damn glad I got to see him too. It was summertime. The band was in suits and it didn't even look like they were breaking a sweat. That's class!
Posted: Jan 1, 2008 7:14 pm
...oh, and right now I am listening to the two "winter" songs off the Lookers single to psych myself up snow shoveling (nope, ain't gone out and started it yet)
Posted: Jan 1, 2008 7:43 pm
I don't know what happened. I threw myself deep into a bluegrass k-hole after last night. Between playing with the kid in the back yard and losing the dog, I've been listening to some deeper cuts and alternating between guitar and mandolin today.
Posted: Jan 1, 2008 7:43 pm
I need new strings, too. Hadn't pulled either out in a while.
Posted: Jan 1, 2008 7:57 pm
Dammit, I love Doc Watson. I threw myself deep into a bluegrass k-hole after last night.

Yep. Been known to go on a bluegrass bender every couple years myself. Sandy Bull and Vassar Clements and Brother Oswald and Bill Monroe...love it, I do.

also found Carolyn Hester's lp on Tradition for $3, I guess because of water damage to the back cover liner notes, wax is near NM. So I checked that out as well.
