It's Just Like The Boardwalk!

Only different. 

Same halter tops, and baseball caps backwards, though.

Make. The Pie. Bigger

Schmuck. On. This.

Ohhhh to be able to do what Drifty does. 
A master of his craft.

Here's to more, and bigger pies, for all the FU's out there. 
And to ABC, for sure, only cuz they are the most recently deserving.

Please don't waste any good cobbler in your pursuit of our constitutional rights to dissent. 

Send THAT to ME. I'll hold it till yer ready for another serving. 
And I'll serve it with vanilla ice cream, too. 

Sorry bout the blogwhoring Tub, but this guy's good, and EVERYONE loves a clown with pie!! 

Who's A Kook?

The Kooks. UK Pop Band. Never heard of them. Heard them in this vid.

Ran the table of vids. I heartily suggest any readers of this post do the same. 

WOW!! I like the acoustic stuff, and the electric stuff ranges from The Mersey Sound to soft Clash like stuff. 

Go figger. Me likin pop music? 



"Wait, rule of thumb? In the early 1900s it was legal for men to beat their wives, as long as they used a stick no wider than their thumb."
"Well, can't do much damage with that then, can we? Perhaps it should have been a rule of wrist? "--Boondock Saints.

See it soon.

Abso-(brief profane interlude here)-lutely

That second period would have been a good time to be at the Seabright.

And go Sharks!

Greatest Band. Evah.

I like all kinds of music, always have in all my history. And yes, I'm VERY particular anymore, but I STILL like a lot of stuff. *G*

As I've aged, the acoustic has owned me, and the likes of my earlier heroes like Doc and Mike Auldridge, newgrass stuff and now trad stuff have gripped me. Americana, gypsy swing, klezmer, and a host of off shoots all make me smile. But this vid of Romantic Warrior captures the complete MASTERY of the craft of making music, the MASTERY of the instruments used and the definitive ensamble and solo play plateau's that only the gifted really reach.
Although not as masterful to me as EARLIER RTF, with Flora and Airto, such as Light As A Feather (one of the top 5 for the desert island, an absolute MUST), this RTF quartet is 4 guys at the height of their game, doing it better than anyone on the planet then, or now. 

And I'm ALWAYS blown away with Al Di Meola every time I hear him. Tony Rice, and Tone. Tween the two, only the masters like Segovia, Reinhardt and Watson hold a candle. 

From Light As A Feather, 500 Miles High. Flora. Wow. 

Damn I've forgotten how good all the vinyl jazz I got and how good it was 35+ years ago. Damn. 

Guess it's time to figger out how to play it, and digitize it. Guess I could sell the vinyl after that. Buy some pork shoulders and apple wood.

"District Judge Peter Ward told the defendant that, in his view, there was no need for a layer of tomatoes on a shepherd’s pie. "

And that's the way it was, April 20, 2008.

Pre-Season Refresher Course for Sailing

Boat Show?

So I just got back from the boat show, or at least the hotel near the boat show. Didn't spend a lot of time at the show. Took the ferry out to Angel Island on friday and did the round the island bike trip, hit the show for Michaels band friday night, had too many Red Bull and Smirnoff's, gawd those things taste rank! Rode up to Lake Merrit on saturday, and then took the BART over to pier 39, and rode out to the Golden Gate and across and back. You know..had to do the touristy thang. Hopped the ferry back to Oaktown, hit the boat show saturday night for the Latts and Atts party, Good Timuh. Ran into some old friends, and then went to Yoshi's for Billy Cobham and friends. Got up, headed down the coast, then rode around Ano today on the way home. Lotsa fun, nice crowd, good timuh, many miles...and cocktails. I'm tired.

Life is good.

Round The World Part 2

Yeah, pretty cool. Ten 68 foot long, nineteen foot wide round the world racers are hangin' out in the harbor before they take off for the next leg, Santa Cruz to Panama. Got some interesting work outta the deal. The skipper and navigator are pros, and the rest have paid there way to race around the world. Must be nice to be able to shell out 5 grand for one leg.

Oh and...Liverpool, European capitol of culture?
