"I listened yesterday. It's no reflection on you but I could'nt see where you were going or what you were going for. This early seventies thing did'nt get noticed the first time and you talk about friends of like Dealney and Bonnie who had records out like we're supposed to remember who they are. Then you play this long winded free jazz stuff that really grates on my nerves. And that noise without a beat and sounds like someones being pinched. Then you play a reggae song, I think you called it Dub, to what, be cool? You seem to really fetishize the whole folk thing too which is obnoxious to us who don't even care. I liked it when you played that punk song though. I like Joe Belock a lot." (Visit homepage.)

Hey, Phillippe!

Not sure I'm going to make it over the bridge today. I don't think any snow has been cleared. I might knock off early though and stage a family walk. What's Friday without dog suffering?

Bluejays, juncos, and sparrows all in full array out back this morning, though.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:05am Yes:

hey everyone
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:07am Phillippe Bastille:

Yep, lots of sparrows and juncos here as well. The marsh wren and red bellied woodpecker showed up for a bite as well, other than that, just the usual suspects.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:11am steveo:

juncos!

we drove back from central PA yesterday and it was pretty horrible; saw a dude in a bronco do a full 360 right in front of us on an icy bridge on I-80; miraculously, no collision

Damn, steveo. Glad you made it back safely! Now I feel a lot better about canceling our plans to head to Sullivan County this week.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:19am eºIºk:

I listened tomorrow. It's no reflection on me but you couldn’t see where I was going or what I was for. This early 2030s thing didn't get noticed the first time and you talk about friends of like Robocop who had arrest records out like we're supposed to remember who they are.

Stepping out to shovel. Turning this way up, so I can still hear it.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:54am Handy Haversack:

Was Sparkle Division the Can channeler?

steveo, I have never seen a chickadee here! Greenpoint is such a wasteland. There's so little green space. This is the first year we have had titmice hanging around, and it's costing me upward of 10 pounds of seed a week! The juncos have stuck around all winter for it, and the titmice and jays are about, too. Mainly, though, we have Handy's Sparrow Air Force.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:55am eºIºk:

That Jan Hammer liquid bass sound is the solution to all of life’s problems. I’m surprised I only know of one song that has sampled/recreated that. Everybody should be ripping that off left and right.

I lived in Lubbock TX for 9 months in 2011. It was really rough for me. One aspect that really bothered me about Texan culture helping others seemed frowned upon. For me, living in Texas was a precursor to life under the 45th president. Public officials made decisions that weren't based in reality and real problems weren't addressed in concrete ways. Fuckin Rick Perry as governor called a "Pray For Rain" rally in Texas Stadium to deal with a drought.

@tim that's exactly the way I felt about my brief time in Denver. Maybe it's a regional thing, or there are a lot of Texans living in CO?
Sorry you went through that in the birth place of Buddy Holly.

That reminds me - it was exacly a year ago that I was planning to take a trip to Houston with my wife to visit the Menil museum - she's never been there. We were going to get away from the Chicago winter. Debating whether to fly or drive. Then - something happened - we didn't go.

@Chuk and Yeti - That attitude very well could be regional. I don't want to disparage the whole state and the people of Texas. I realized I was the outlier when I was there. The natural landscape is pretty awesome and Houston has some incredible art museums I'd like to visit some day.

Debated whether to bathe or shower - then something happened - i did neither.

@tim: That "don't help others" attitude you mentioned is very real, you're not wrong about that.

Curious ... What does Texas JAZZ sound like?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:45am Handy Haversack:

We have decided to start the weekend early with brunch and brunchtails, the latter of which I managed to pour in my sandal. They weren't all happy days, Marge.

Got to see Milford Graves with Peter Brotzmann and William Parker - talk about a power trio. No one like like him...

@D(iL): What do they call it in the UK? Or do they have them there?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:48am Mister Dobalina:

Slaughter house jazz!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:49am TomDash:

Yep David - and the trio of talent and power was just perfect.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:49am Mister Dobalina:

Jazz is stupid, why can't they just play the right notes!!!!

no one survived the marching band bus massacre, except milford, hugh glover, and arthur doyle who told everyone all about it
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:52am Mister Dobalina:

@Bob, thank you for that tidbit of wisdom, it makes total sense.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:52am David (in London):

Yeti Bob. In all my years I have never come across a bespoke expression for it in the UK, so I really don't know. I'd be tempted to call it a 'jemmy' (which is what you would refer to the crowbar a burglar uses as), but there may be a specialist term in the automotive trade. I'm going to investigate and report back.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:52am Handy Haversack:

Are we talking about the tool or the jerky? (As the parson said to the maid.)

Thanks, JA! This had all the right sounds in all the right places. It went too fast!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:52am karlward:

I got to share the stage with Nick Cooper from Sprawl / Free Radicals a couple times. Definitely the best drummer I have ever played with. The guy is incredible.

That's what got me confused! Made of cows lips???!!!

Whew!

YB, it was going to be $30 if he had to do it. That's when young Handy taught himself how to boost cars.

*American* cow lips could open any car door, David! Snap into a Ford Escort!
