  1. I love Little Richard, Tutti Frutti isn't my favorite of his, but I still like it and it is the obvious choice. I do think it's important to note that he may borrowed liberally from a lesser known artist named Esquerita. Very similar in looks and style. Of course the music world likely has hundreds of Esquerita (essentially pioneering artists that probably didn't get their due on a wider stage).

    I wish the Lions could find a coach like Jim Caldwell. Speaking of Sports Apparel, I don't have much at all. I have a Lions hat my son got me for Christmas. And I still have a Golden State Warriors Chris Webber Jersey that I got in third grade. It was actually my first jersey ever, and why that one is still around I have no idea.

    I don't really know much either, I'm picking things up more recently regarding "theory" I guess. Truth is you don't need to be a virtuoso, prodigy, or even talented to write a song. I mean everything I write is pretty basic. String together a few notes in a pattern and uh go from there?

    Guess what (what Puke since you're the only one here)? I got a recording apparatus again, and it's much easier (though lower quality) then the old recorder I had. So... Here's some new ones... First one is just me trying to figure out how to play lead guitar. Went with a simple three chord rhythm (weird right?) in the Key of A and attempted to do a bit of lead over it. What ended up happening is I settled on a pattern in the Key of A lead notes to make the song have a bit more of a cohesive sound (before hand I was free styling, some good and bad results). And what was supposed to be a regular ass song sort of turned into a neat little surfy sounding deal. I do bass on this as well, hope to add drums eventually but I am for more awful at drums than I am mediocre at stringed instruments. The title is a funny one, seems like every time I attempt to record the kids come down. I love them but ya know some songs weren't meant to begin with a high pitched "HEYY DAD! WHERE ARE YOU?". Anyway, this song sort of represents a breakthrough in my playing. So I've been playing over six years, for whatever reason it just now dawned on me to playing single notes while holding a chord shape on the neck to make my sound more interest/create a lead playing shortcut. Its actually a trick I picked up from banjo since I will do banjo rolls over chord shapes on the banjo. I kind of want to re-record the bass on this because I feel like I'm off a few times and want to sort of experiment on how I hit or play the notes.
  5. Elmore James is awesome, real pleasant surprise to see him here. Well deserved of course, he is the king of slide guitar after all.
  6. I fucking love Rocket 88, really catchy song
  7. Nice. They're a cool band, kind of daunting to get into because they have such a large discography. They're playing here in April actually, I may go.

    Absolutely. I remember when Barry retired I was like "what a dick". But now that I'm not 15 anymore I realize he did the right thing. He got paid, had 10 relatively seasons, and got the fuck out with some quality of life (and realistically fuck the Lions and their feelings). Knowing more now about what the game does to the body has me applauding anybody that retires. The petty part of me likes that it pisses off shithead fans.
  9. I love Hank, I like Lovesick Blues from Shawshank Redemption. Oh, I listened to that Rum and Coke song by Lord Invader and really like it. Think that will be the next musical rabbit hole I fall into.

    Houston is a well built team to be fair, I like their roster. Still...the potential for an AFC championship game being Houston vs. Tennessee is not at all what I would expect. If the Texans win does this sorta change some perception about Bill O'Brien.

    Dude THE AFC playoffs have been absurd. I love it.

    There is still part of me as a Lions fan hoping the Packerse lose. I'm hoping for Seattle to win it all, but it's going to be tough. But if the Packers win that's ok because it'll piss off our fanbase.
  13. I think I'm gonna try to listen to a few of these today. There were some really interesting ones on here based on the story/social commentary. The "Brother Can You Spare a Dime" in particular sounds good after the way you all talked about it.
  14. It is a bummer, but on the other hand, you can get reasonable prices on the used market. And I'm good with that because the games are these tiny card things so they really can't get scratched and shit. Also, Mario Odyssey is fucking awesome. It is the first Mario game since the first one NES that I have had in my household. I remember really liking Mario 64 a lot, that is the most recent one I had played and I barely played it. There was a fucking dragon breathing electricity. Here let me repeat that. There was a fucking dragon breathing electricity. Actually....is there a way to buy Mario 64 still? Is that a buy an old N64 and game cartridge or can it be downloaded (not emulator).

    A lot of times it comes down to execution, and we just didn't execute. Look, we're going to continue to review film and work hard. My guys fought for sixty minutes.
  16. I really like the stuff off of Dust Bowl Ballads with Tom Joad Pt 1 and 2 as my favorite. It's a great song (songs), obviously just a quick re-telling of Grapes of Wrath. But I love that one of my favorite folk artists is singing about one of my favorite authors stories. And Blowin' Down This Road, that's another great one.
  17. Yeah, for sure. I was thinking I could grab a few because prices would have come down, but not so much. I actually played Mario last night, took the switch off the console and sat on the couch. Game is super fun man.

    But on the other hand, one of those two options was Matt Patricia and he's absolutely awful.
  19. So my kids have been loving Mario. Actually really quick...Ultimate Alliance 3 is too fucking hard and I hate it. It's just absurd how tough they've made the Marvel equivalent of Galsia and Donovan. Fuck the Dr. Octopus boss fight. With that out of the way, Mario Odyssey is an absolute blast. I've been really out of the loop with Mario games but this is super fun. I've barely played but watched my boys play it and it's very cool. I love that they decided "hey, why not let Mario become lava or electricity?". Why not indeed. So I watched a video of Mario Maker 2 and that just looks fucking crazy in the best of ways. I think we have that, Smash Brothers, and Zelda as our next ones to get.

    Yeah, Brady hasn't sexually assaulted anybody. As for the playoffs, I'm hoping to see Seattle vs. Baltimore in the Super Bowl. Probably my two favorite teams besides my loveable losers due to how they built their teams. Plus Jackson vs. Wilson are the two best QBs in the league (or you can argue Rodgers) and I think that would be a fun showdown.
  21. The Carter Family and Robert Johnson, I'm familiar with both (more so Johnson). Believe it or not I've often seen The Carter Family as one of those cited as a very early influence on rock and roll. Obviously it's a few years away before we get to rock and roll as we know it, but have to start somewhere. And wow, listening to that Cross Road Blues. It sounds like so many great blues song that came after it. The most obvious to me is Elmore James "Dust My Broom". Elmore speeds his rhythm up a bit and utilizes some brilliant slide guitar work. Still, even in the 30s, Johnson is really a pioneer here. Hopefully we see more great delta blues appearing (which I imagine we will).
  22. I'm wondering if Bob Wills and his Texas Playboys or Woody Guthrie appear on this. I'm gonna check some of these out, this is a pretty interesting thing you're doing.

    Just because it's so Lions... The Packers never held a lead in regulation in both games against the Lions. The Lions lost both. Yay can't wait to see this fucked up crew botch the third overall pick. This would have been an optimal time to just cut bait on everything and fucking rebuild from the ground up.

    I got a synthesizer for Christmas. It is ridiculously fun, there are so many different ways to bend and alter sound. I'd post a recording but my recorder took a shit and wont boot up. So I'm probably going to get an audio interface here soon and use my computer as my new recording station.
