The Blasters

Tuesday, 17 October 2017

The Blasters. I saw them in the early 1980s at The Whiskey. They opened for The Fabulous Thunderbirds, who opened for some other band. Those two bands left little else to say, and I honestly can’t remember who the headliner was.

Saturday Matinee – Las Vegas

Saturday, 7 October 2017

I can’t bring myself to post anything remotely light-hearted or amusing, so we’ll leave it at this.

Please pray for the dead, their friends, their families, and especially pray for the witnesses who will remember and relive this horrific event for the rest of their lives.

 

Q: Name one new law that can be enacted that would have prevented the massacre in Las Vegas.

A: You can’t.

PreTeen Rock Band Camp Posters

Wednesday, 30 August 2017

So the little ProtoRockers are sent to “Band Camp” and the kids get bored with the necessary repetition. So what’s next? Teach Pentatonics? Arpeggios? Etudes? NO!

Let’s Make Posters!

I really want to hear what these kids can put out. Honest.

If it’s for fun, let it ride.

On the other hand, if someone is telling these children that they will be wealthy and famous someday by merely jamming C, F and G, then I’m against it.

R.I.P. Gregg Allman (1947 – 2017).

4 minutes and 15 seconds of a miniature goat on a hammock [via].

Here’s a small collection of Rodney Dangerfield tattoos.

Listen to the sweet song of a disturbed Dødningehoved natsværmer.

These are kinda fun bug sounds, too. The long-horned beetle is my favorite – little squeaky shoes. More here.

Started working Sudoku puzzles recently, and for a while I could only get up to a difficulty level of 2 using a basic brute force method. I began to recognize logic patterns and suspected others. This site describes them, from “naked singles” to “hidden quads.”

Schopenhauer’s 38 ways to win an argument exposed underhanded and dishonest tactics in The Art of Being Right (1831). Intended as acerbic snark, how many have you seen used in modern political discourse?

Artificial Intelligence program composes Irish folk songs. Check out this sample (performed by humans).

Rhinoceros was a funk/rock band in the late 60s-70s that should have received wider recognition.Check out “Apricot Brandy.” Don’t laugh – it made No. 46 on the Billboard charts in 1969. They never overcame the fact that they were manufactured by Electra Records.

I have a sign on the lawn that says “HOT LAVA.” Keeps the little kids on the sidewalk.
