    Personally I’m drinking a nice glass of cold brewed ice tea. (Twinings now makes cold brew, they sent me some samples and it’s the best I’ve ever had, tastes just like I brewed it traditionally.)

    Here is a Beatles song that is largely unknown by others than those who know. It was like the B side of Zeppelin’s Immigrant Song that no one knew about at the time.

    Beatles B side. It’s silly and hardly worth a listen unless you are diehard.

    SADM made me listen to some Beatles tunes and I found myself enjoying them after years of scoffing at their music. For instance, who would have thought this was a Beatles tune and not a Disney movie tune?

    I have only two ‘favorite’ bands…both eclectic, daring, pushing the gig forward, creative and above all, great musicians…
    the Stones and Little Feat…if you have seen neither you simply have not lived the life…after those guys it gets really muddled, but the Stones and the Feat are proven, long term acts that deliver…a Feat show is a real mind buster, you just cannot believe what you are hearing live…Jagger was very impressed with the Feat when he saw them in England via that famed Warner Bros tour in the 70′s

    Yep. I caught one concert. I had tickets for the nosebleed section. But I’m tiny. So I literally got down to the main floor and crawled the last bit to the stage on my tummy.

    Popped up like a cork right in front of Page. He was amused.

    “What do you want sweetheart?”

    “Whole Lotta Love”

    Plant yelled from center stage “What does she want?”

    “Whole Lotta Love”

    And so they did. And Page stayed right in front of me, that cigarette dangling out of his mouth and played. To me.

    One of the best moments of my life.

    the Stones brought the delta blues to white America and supported the old artists, they had lyrics censored, they got into reggae, smooth ballads and love songs, horns, extended jams, they have supported young growing artists…the Stones have done it all and usually way before anybody else figured it out…just listen to Beggars Banquet, released in 1968, light years ahead of their time….the Stones lead, other great bands follow

    Isn’t that cool when you make a moment happen? No one would believe it, but you were there, in part of the action.

    Summer 75, YES is at the Hollywood Bowl. this kid uses a trick to get down to the boxes. Buy two beverages and convincing a him gets past the ushers. I find a space between box seats and crouch and enjoy the concert. Chris Squire, the bassist, sees me and I see him laugh as he looks at me more than once. This is the kind of thing that can’t be shared by any other.

    Unless, like you, it was shared.

    how did you get ripped for $250k?

    I toured with them, the little prick who played guitar for them didn’t like me showing him up so he leaned on my record company to fire me. Do not pass go, do not collect the rest of your contract.

    what was the name of your band…maybe I recall them

    @ Calo:

    Some of the best shows I’ve ever seen were held there. John Williams conducting movie scores. The Overture to Wizard of Oz, the film showing while the orchestra played. Jaws, Raiders, 2001.

    And Warner Bros. cartoons with an ensemble of sounds techs working along with another orchestra, with the gadgets to get every sound right while the vids played overhead.

    And this is where I saw my first 3G concert with Satch, Vai and johnson. The first of very many.

    Also had a famous soul singer the same week. Can’t remember who the hell she was anymore though. What a bitch. Voice like she was gargling rusty nails. Demanded a smoking room then smoked about 30 packs of unfiltered in it. Had an assistant just for her dogs. Treated the poor girl like a slave. Made ridiculous demands of everyone. Brought in dozens of huge suitcases and demanded people haul them. Then didn’t tip anyone a single cent. Also appeared to have stolen the towels.

    Humpf. Best concert I ever went to was to hear the Denver symphony in 1986. In the realtively new (then) concert hall in the Denver Civic Center complex. I was in town for a one week Carbonate Sedimentology class taught be the late, great Gerald Friedman (look him up – remarkable man.) Nobody else from the class of maybe 25 people wanted to go, so I went myself. After a couple of shorter intro pieces I don’t recall, they did “The Planets” by Holst. The place had excellent acoustics and I had never seen four concert harps on stage at one time.

    Even those who don’t know classical might easily recognize this part as the music playing during the launch of John Glenn’s Mercury mission in the film “The Right Stuff.”

    I have, but it’s been a WHILE.

    I did watch ‘K-19: The Widowmaker’ again last week, though. A pretty good dramatization, even though it’s factually inaccurate in many places.

    Here’s my favorite Zep tune:

    httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZXbLlxJO5Uc

    I need to be up by 5:30 AM, but I absolutely hate it when I wake up between 4:00 and then.

    I just can’t go back to sleep anymore.

    That’s not insomnia is it?

    I passed out around 11.

    115 | December 28, 2012 5:05 am

    Well, it looks like I have the floor.

    Is anyone else not really that concerned about John Kerry being SecState?

    Given the company Soetoro & Co. keep, it’s kind of a “devil you know” situation for me. As terrible as it sounds, it could be worse.

    In fact, given his itinerary for the past year and a half or so, I’d say he already has the job for all intents and purposes.

    Choose your battles, I say.

    I still say conservative groups should make ad buys publicizing this looming longeshoremen strike highlighting what they’re making and what they want. Holding consumers and the “recovery”(heh) hostage.

    It’s an easy layup against Big Labor, if we want to take it.

    Of course, funds are probably pretty low since November…

    Okay, let’s hear some practical expertise. I have a new leather holster, but it’s stiff as the proverbial board, and certain parts need to be softened up a bit. Neatsfoot oil? Saddle soap? It’s a shoulder holster, so getting it all greassy to stain clothes is not a good option. Advice gratefully accepted…


  119. Bumr50
    119 | December 28, 2012 5:51 am

    I’ve always used straight neatsfoot, but if I were you I’d check around baseball gloves at sporting goods stores, or even online.

    Guns pour in at L.A. buyback events

    Thousands of people line up to exchange guns for supermarket gift cards at the Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena and the Van Nuys Masonic Temple.

    The money quote is:

    “That young guy shot up all the kids and they blamed the mama because the mama had the weapons in the house,” Valerie Butler said, in explaining why she was waiting in line two hours in South Los Angeles to get rid of an old handgun.

    Yet Butler, 50, said she was not getting rid of both of her guns.

    “Just one,” she said, and laughed. “There’s a bunch of nuts out here, and they’re coming in when you’re sleeping. You got to protect yourself.”


  121. 121 | December 28, 2012 5:59 am

    @ Bumr50:

    I’m just afraid the neatsfoot will make it all oily and stain clothes, since it’s going to be both under and over clothing. What’s suitable for an application like a baseball glove may not be suitable for this application. Time and use will solve it eventually, but that’s not much comfort if you actually needed to draw the weapon quickly before that happened.

    So far, the only jacket I have that REALLY conceals it is my old leather jacket. A sports coat isn’t quite enough on a person my size with that full-sized pistol. It’s that full-length grip that tends to protrude. Doesn’t look right to me.

    Over time saddlesoap will also waterproof. neatsfoot oil is for flexibility. If you rub it in well, it will not stain.

    For colder weather – and I think you and I are in the same geographical area – check out Cabela’s Drover Coat. You can conceal anything in that puppy. The photo doesn’t do it justice – it looks short but it’s not.

    For warmer weather, see if you can find a photographer’s vest. Loads of pockets and no sleeves.


  123. 123 | December 28, 2012 8:33 am

    @ Guggi:

    Yeah, the gun buyback programs are such scams. Do they really think gangbangers are going to tunr in their weapons for a few bucks? No, what they are doing is collecting broken guns and weapons that are sitting in people’s closets not hurting anybody. It is typical of Liberal “solutions” to problems: there is little substance, and it doesn’t address the problem, but it makes the Liberals feel better.

    124 | December 28, 2012 8:49 am

    @ Iron Fist:
    Guys in my local gun forum have joked about setting up a competing table right next to the buy-back on the lookout for the few nice firearms the idiots are throwing away, and outbid the buy-back loons.
