    "Over, Under... Under, Dunn."
  2. One of my all-time favorite films. "did you want 600 1foot tall soldiers or 100 6ft tall soldiers?" something like that.

    Jokes?

    It's funny sometimes when I tell that joke to people. Some that take a while to see it get mad at me and say it's a dumb joke. It probably is dumb but I always thought it amusing.

    Did you hear the one about the termite that crawled into a tavern and asked... Is the bartender here?
  5. Markus King was the biggest revelation to me and my son at the Crossroads Fest. Can't wait to see him in Feb in Seattle. He is a hard worker and leaves it all out there.
  6. Looks like a super huge old turret board from an organ, maybe?
  7. Dad was a Pearl Harbor Survivor. On the USS California, flagship for CINCPAC. He was 'volunteered' to be on the Admiral's staff because he was the only man in the room at the time who knew shorthand. He enlisted at 17 to get off of the farm in Indiana. So after they mended and limped out of the harbor, the California stayed clear of most of the fray. So Dad was somewhat lucky in that. He was also a survivor of, what was to that day and long after, the worst Naval Maritime disaster. The disaster at Point Honda off the Ca coast in 1923. He was 18 years old then. Dad was a career Navy Man. He never did learn to swim, however, in all of his life! Dad also didn't talk of the war. But the loved to tell stories about the mishaps, comraderie, girl in every port Navy stuff. And he was a masterful story teller. He died on his 95th birthday. I love you, Dad. Thank you. And thank you to all who have served.
  8. He is back there for 2 nights. The Paramount is still the belle of the ball in Seattle, imho. And really good food nearby, which is always a plus. I feel fortunate to be near the music here.
  9. He's incredible live. Seattle in March. Gotta wait. 4th row

    It's actually possible now that you mentioned it! There was a time I went commando. But I meant it was all stealth fishing. The club was private and closed in the evenings.

    Ever bass fished at the Lakewood Country Club? Had some real porkers in there but it was all nightime commando fishing.
  12. I am not a headphone guru. But I agree the Senn 650 is a great can. And comfortable. I use it straight out of a Denon 3312ci. So with some dacs and amps it should sound even better. Look into Drop (formerly Massdrop) for their version done in collaboration with Sehnheiser. The price is unbeatable for truly great and well regarded 'phones.

    Hijack here. I lived across Cherry Ave from Lakewood way back. We used to watch movies at the Lakewood drive-in from the railroad cars on tracks right next to it. Then the theatre sold and new owners turned it into a porn drive-in. (what could go wrong?) So we watched porn from the railroad cars. Then the city saw a bunch of kids watching porn from railroad cars and shut down the drive-in. It never recovered. I did though! Fun memories!
  14. It's a good thing they don't show old Heckle and Jeckle 'toons then, also. Ultra violent (IIRC) and blatantly racist. Very popular for a while, too.
  15. Good luck up there. Thanks for remaining our friends.
  16. Marcus King did indeed leave it all out there. His "Soul Insight" lp is fabulous. A must see if he comes my way.
  17. Maybe you all knew it (I knew of the 30 year lost guitar) but both that axe and the kit were used on Frampton Comes Alive. I think I remember Peter saying the drum kit was found for sale on e-bay!
  18. Buddy Guy! "Sheeyitt!" He made that proclamation several times during his story telling. And that guy has stories. It's now a part of my son's and my verbiage. Thanks for all the great shots, jimjimbo.
  19. I havta live frugally to afford a Crossroads show. Half of my t shirts are that old and then some!
  20. That's what my son and I were thinking. But everything's for sale in this America.
  21. Yes it goes back before the classic Austin City Limits show. Its hard to wear down a solid body guitar, wouldn't you think? The wear spots were as smooth as a 20 year old t shirt. The reverence surrounding this piece was palpable. It was like being in church for a solemn occasion.
  22. Alas, I was $99.99 short
  23. We saw one guitar that I wished followed me home!
  24. Bonnie Raitt spent a lot of her time backing away from the mike. She needed to kiss that thing more. The mixers in back weren't paying close enough attention to whose guitar needed a volume boost on time. Saturday was much better.
