Baseball Toaster was unplugged on February 4, 2009.
With Jon Lester looming in Game 3 as the ALCS is set to move up to Fenway, tonight's Game 2 at the Trop is a must-win for the Rays. Unfortunately, Scott Kazmir hasn't been sharp since May. My preview of tonight's game is up over on SI.com.
longoria w/ a 2-run game tying homer off Fuckett!
i'm sorry you have Sut. but, at least, you don't have to suffer w/ chip caray!
It couldn't be because the Rays really are pretty good?
19 ooh, really?! fully nude?! might be the best movie ever! ; )
reese is pretty perfect... : ~
she's with a long-haired guy in that scene. shit, i'm a long-haired guy and i actually do love her! ah, shoulda been an actor instead of a musician... : ~
25 yeah man, claudia schiffer, to me, is the most beautiful woman ever ever ever ever...
29 i saw most of that movie on a plane overseas when i was headed out on tour. missed the very end, but yeah, it was a good flick and reese was excellent in it...
wow, is that 5 xbh for Fuckett in a postseason game? in 3+ innings? beautiful!
um, forget that. oopsie!
i fuggin' HATE the shit sox
nope, no gig tonight. i was keeping it open to go to the allmans brothers concert as a guest. then i got a potential gig for tonight, but it ended up happening last nite. you'd like who it was with, but it didn't go well. at some point, when i email you offline, maybe i'll tell you about it.
anyway, i'm glad for the night off. i had bronchitis last week, went back to work this week and Mon-Fri really wiped me out. plus, i've got an awful new neighbor downstairs who's been keeping me up. so, it's good i get the night off. go back to gigging tomorrow...
enjoy the day w/ the lady! hopefully Just Fair and JL will come back 'round these parts...
yeah, email anytime man. and play some Mariah Carey real loud, make the neighbor move out!
mariah carey, had some great studio musicians on her first 2 albums. this girl plays weird trance rock music. it's god awful. she's only loud late at night when she comes home drunk w/ this asshole guy. it's been a horrible coupla months for me in that regard. i'm still in the works to get the situation resolved. i can't live like this much longer. i've been in the same pad for about a decade and never had to deal with bollocks like this... : /
you still at the same sorekara### email addy? if so, i have it written down here...
be right back...!
And even as an F-you - four sides of it?
Listen to a bit of the samples at allmusic or Amazon or somewhere. I don't think it would be possible to listen for more than about a minute.
i've never been a lou reed fan. warrior soul (nyc band) did a 'fuck you to the record company' album and it indeed sucked. yes, i like, but yeah, Tales...was a bit rough...
58 yes, you're right - studio musicians don't always make the album. my favorite drummer played on a track or two on mariah's Emotions sophomore release. i collect everything he plays on but have never brought myself to actually own that cd! i just saw her mug on the cover of some dumb magazine on the checkout line at the supermarket. she's pregnant or something...
in fact, most of those classic Blue Note sessions were studio guys and sometimes they were just burnt out and laid down a stinker of a record. it happens...
oh, Mr. Jazz Tokyo - i got that Hank Mobley Jap cardboard Best Of. it's a series called 'the blue note years.' they released 10 or 20 of these for their star artists. it's a cool release and i'm glad to have it for my collection, but half of the song choice make for a curious compilation.
i have another Jap Mobley best of blue note on its way to me. it's the Blue Note 'Essential Blue Classics' series...
Miles Davis's 4-sides resulted in the amazing Workin', Cookin', Steamin', Relaxin' quartet of jazz essentials...
i'm not familiar w/ the lou reed one and sounds like that's a good thing! ; )
well, i kinda see the irony. i'm not really your typical long-haired rock drummer. in fact, i don't really play much rock right now, at all. jazz, blues & country gigs mostly. but anyway, my drums are at a different location and i'm super quiet in my pad, esp. in the middle of the night. i do play marimba sometimes, but that's Classical music and it's during the day.
it's just a girl who lives by herself and when it's just her, it's pretty tolerable. it's just when her idiot b/f is over - they're loud n drunk and it's always well past midnight.
since i teach, play and record drums for a living, i cherish my quietude when i get home...
yeah man, it would be beautiful for ol' purced lips to blow the game!
one of the reasons i teach (and teach some in schools), is b/c i hate hearing when kids or older folks quit music 'coz their parents forced them to take piano lessons and it was boring or they hated the band teacher.
it's never ever ever to late to pick up an instrument or even take 1 lesson. for about a year now, i've been teaching an airplane pilot. he's in his 40's and never played a single note of music in his life, but both of his daughters take piano lessons and it gave him the bug. was there an instrument that you were drawn to as a kid?
time for longoria to channel some more rookie magic
judging by the tag name, i was thinkin' it was that old troll Ric...
i would love for one day to be more of a part of the drumming community and get to do more professional clinics/masterclasses and release instructional books/dvd's...
that's hysterical - my pop had a little casio i used a bit as a kid. i, too, learned Axel F! my other tune was Karma Chameleon. of course, i was more drawn to the horrible drumbeats and "fill-in" button! : )
i imagine bagpipes are an exceedingly difficult instrument to learn. yeah, and practicing it could be a problem! ; )
but mainly, i wanna learn how to play the cello. i did have to learn basics in college as part of my Music Education degree, but when i'm older (i'm already old, damnit!), i'd like to buy a cello, get a middle school (or so) methods book, take some lessons and learn how to play a bit. it's my very favorite non-percussion instrument in the world. sooooo incredibly beautiful!
great start to the 11th and with the bottom of the order, no less...
