  1. Covid vaccination: poll

    Update: Temperature went down to 98.7, and was able to fall asleep normally. Very little arm pain.
  2. National anthem at the CPAC convention

    All hell broke loose on "The Rockets red glare!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Hilarious!
  3. Covid vaccination: poll

    Last night, my temperature zipped up to 100, and I couldn't get to sleep, so I read Charles Williams till 7:30am , usually a good author to induce sleep, due to long involved sentences, and obscure religious /occult references. I woke up today feeling a bit out of it, but my temperature went back down to 98.4, though it usually rises at night. Sperm count remains the same, and am filling out the applications for the sex slavery ring in my area. I hope those women don't abuse my fertility...
  4. Covid vaccination: poll

    My arm hurts. That's it for now. According to reactions to it from other people, the 'fun' starts about twelve hours after the shot, which for me will be 2:30am. When I got the shot, I asked the young woman when I should start to expect experiencing side f/x, and she looked at me and said, "NOW". It was like something out of a horror movie! AAGHHH!
  5. Spiral - The Harry Roche Constellation

    British funk from 1973. The chick singer is the vocalist on Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon. I don't know where you find this stuff TTK, but keep it coming! Interesting arr. by Pete Moore, with top UK session men gettin' funky. Just another reason why drum machines should be banned.
  6. Covid vaccination: poll

    I just got my second Moderna shot today, 37 days after the first shot, instead of the recommended 28 days. The shot was painless (like the first), but the pain has started to kick in. Will be posting about my misery starting tomorrow. I feel okay now.
  7. What Classical Music Are You Listening To?

    This was the first Koechlin album I bought; some 28 years ago. He wrote that "the monkeys were just self-satisfied mimics whose only goal is to follow the fashion of the day...such things are said to take place in the world of artists, too". "Debussyism, Atonality and Twelve Tone composition follow each other in an awkward potpourri, the prophets of the Back to Bach movement apply their fugal skills to a popular tune..." It's pretty hilarious until Mowgli's rescue, and then the true polymodal music of Koechlin emerges, celebrating his rescue. Koechlin's music is always so good, I just buy his CDs whenever I find one.
  8. Honi Gordon

    No, just a long Mingus concert with Bill Cosby as MC. Gene Ammons, Bobby Jones and James Moody in a tenor battle.Teo Macero was conducting. I didn't know that Eddie Bert and Eddie Preston were on that band. I played with them about 20 years later.
  9. Honi Gordon

    I saw her live at the Mingus Philharmonic Hall concert in '72. All I remember is "Eclipse".
  10. I still remember seeing Roland Kirk destroy a folding chair on one episode!
  11. How's Your Sperm Count?

    ohmygodinthefuturewomenwillholdfertilemalesasbreedingsexslaves- Sound good to me.
  12. I just saw a good documentary on what was the first Black directed and produced show on US television that was made in NYC. I was amazed to find out that, IMHO. the greatest gospel singer of all time, Marion Williams, was a guest on the show in 1968. A young Stevie Wonder with Wonderlove was featured a few times on the show, including one episode where he just kept playing, even though he went way over his allotted time, and they had to keep getting new cans of tape at the time to capture his entire performance. Billy Taylor, Roland Kirk, and many other jazz musicians of the time were also feattured on the show, along with many Black poets. The clips on the show were pretty short, but here's an idea of who appeared during the show's five year run: Ellis Haizlip ... Self - Host / ... 12 episodes, 1968-1973 Jerry Butler ...

  13. LPs that have never made it into CD

    Where have you been TTK? I've missed your posts! Did you go on one of those month long cocktail party cruises? Just kidding.
  14. RIP Chick Corea

    I'd rather pay to watch you guys working on spreadsheets, than watch that pig slobbering down his spaghetti, slurping up all the sauce and getting it all over his face. He probably licks the plate clean right in front of you for an extra thousand bucks! I've thought of starting my own cult to help pay the bills. I got the idea from Lenny Lopate. You have to combine the popularity of Jesus in the West and the hare Krishna movement from the East. I'll call it, "The Hairy Christians".
