Kris Holmes's avatar View Kris Holmes's profile Options

Twenty years of dusty fingers, frayed cuticles, & upper respiratory infections — from record digging and DJing around the globe — coalesces into a 2-hour journey through Rhythm & Blues, Soul, Funk, Jazz, Blues, Latin, Rock & Roll, and all points in between. Your speakers will be head-nodding, toe-tapping & even two-stepping to this vintage 45rpm party in no time. Hear favorite songs you didn't know were your favorites, aural treats & record-world problems from the vinyl side of life.

It only took me 70 minutes to get my laptop working again, but here I am!
Avatar    Tue. 4/10/18 11:21pm geezerette:

Hear you soon, Danny!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 4/10/18 11:21pm northguineahills:

miffed I missed chingadera, title doesn't sound FCC safe...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 4/10/18 11:22pm Little Danny:

Thanks geez, I look forward to it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 4/10/18 11:22pm coelacanth∅:

the legendary cry baby...put to good use there Kris
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 4/10/18 11:27pm coelacanth∅:

i was looking for a first generation morley of some sort, when i could consider spending money on a wah pedal. it's kind of a shame - to waste a classic effects pedal on a guitar-fuckarounder; rather than leaving it for a real player to get.
...it wouldn't be the first such waste.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 4/10/18 11:30pm northguineahills:

(or does Mexican slang slide? I know the FCC doesn't allow official naughty words en espanol).
Avatar Tue. 4/10/18 11:31pm Kris Holmes:

It's just slang for a "thing you can't think of what it's called".
Avatar    Tue. 4/10/18 11:34pm geezerette:

Haha, just learned a new word. Thanks NGH, I'd better be careful where I use it.
WTF, yes?
Avatar Tue. 4/10/18 11:35pm Kris Holmes:

Like "hey pass me that chingadera from over there" & then someone passes you a garlic crusher or something
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 4/10/18 11:36pm northguineahills:

in Mty, DF, y Pachuca, it would connotate a feminine fucker (but closer to fuck, as in "fuck you", then whore). Slang does varies across Mexican cultures, and it baffles me. (based on my wife and her friends) (I still have fucks to give).
Avatar    Tue. 4/10/18 11:36pm geezerette:

Cant wait to deploy it.
Avatar Tue. 4/10/18 11:38pm Kris Holmes:

Dang, that's way worse than what we use it for here!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 4/10/18 11:39pm coelacanth∅:

hahaha...Yeah!
-i don't think i'll ever use that!
Avatar    Tue. 4/10/18 11:44pm geezerette:

Love that deep, echoy sound. So smooth.
Avatar    Tue. 4/10/18 11:49pm geezerette:

Really?! Wow, Kris! :)
Avatar    Tue. 4/10/18 11:50pm geezerette:

DJs here are so multi-faceted,
Avatar Tue. 4/10/18 11:52pm Kris Holmes:

Ha, you guys get to be guinea pig test audiences for what I did with my Sunday lol
Avatar    Tue. 4/10/18 11:54pm geezerette:

'Nother great show,Kris! Thanks for the tunes!
Pleasure assisting your market research.
Avatar Tue. 4/10/18 11:55pm Kris Holmes:

Thanks so much for tuning in
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 4/10/18 11:56pm northguineahills:

Sorry, laptop crashed again. Yeah, it's one of two words (well, chinga) when she's thoroughly pissed at me. (ie: chinga tu madre)A chingadera would be a feminine form of fucker.
Avatar    Tue. 4/10/18 11:58pm geezerette:

Oh! Makes sense. Thanks for the Spanish lesson!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 4/10/18 11:59pm northguineahills:

Thanks Kris, although I only caught maybe 6-7 minutes of your set live thanks to laptop problems..
Avatar Wed. 4/11/18 12:01am Kris Holmes:

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/11/18 12:02am coelacanth∅:
