Season Cinco


04-17 Santa Barbara, CA - Santa Barbara Bowl...

... is he time/place when Thom brings it home with his new band. Guess whose in that band other than Thom? Flea and Nigel Godrich. It will probably be a good show.

Security Tool, indeed

Don't you guys just love those malware programs that cause windows to pop up every 1 to 3 minutes which advertise a product that doesn't really do shit?

Kobe Bryant gots mad tough skills.
Yeah, 24 brings home the sauce.
His epic wins decrease my ills.
Like a fresh ski blast from some hemp-made floss.

Too all the dirt farmers who be hatin’.
And all the gheys who once escaped.
Prepare yourselves for some penetratin’.
Your bikes will be stolen and you gonna get raped.

Thom likes these guys.

Kind of an experimental, but soulful vibe. I like how his voice gets chorused in certain segments..

Answer: Jump. see what I did there? No? Really? O.k., back to my hole.

What happened to the Rush Limbaugh post?

Perhaps a hyper intelligent right-wing AI construct is trolling the web and eradicating all anti-Limbaugh content.

On a lighter note...

LITCHFIELD, Conn. — Rip Torn was so intoxicated when he broke into a Connecticut bank carrying a loaded gun that he thought he was home, taking off his hat and boots and leaving them by the door, according to court records.

The 78-year-old actor was arraigned yesterday on several charges after spending the weekend in a police holding cell near his hometown of Salisbury, in northwestern Connecticut.

The "Men in Black" actor is accused of breaking into the Litchfield Bancorp branch through a window Friday night in Salisbury, where officers responding to an alarm found him wandering in the lobby and nearly incoherent.

He is expected to enter an alcohol rehabilitation center in New York, his attorney said.

Long Comment in Reply To Kevin's Post

I've made the realization that "success" in music (financial success) isn't always about the music itself. It frequently has to do with the packaging and presentation of the product, which includes many things:

-sex appeal and/or "coolness" of the musician(s), fashionability
-public preconceptions, peer pressure, advertising
-availability, presence, marketing

All these things effect peoples' perceptions of music and their ability or inability to appreciate it.

A metaphor I liken this phenomenon to is Japanese food products.

If you've ever eaten at a Japanese restaurant or bought a Castella cake or even a roll of sushi you know how much attention they pay to the presentation of the food: putting things in neat wrappers and nice containers, usually symmetrical, often colorful and always clean.

The thinking is that your enjoyment of the presentation of the food will add to the overall pleasure of your eating experience, even if the food isn't all that good in the first place... And you know, it works! Presentation can turn simply passable food into a gourmet dining experience.

Capitalism and basically the ability to trick people out of their money rule what society considers to be "art" in today's music market. But its also the want to be a part of something bigger that makes people shell out money for shitty music. People like to pretend that Lady Gaga is their friend and that they are part of some super cool club because they have her CD. Basically they just like her music because they are easily manipulated and haven't really developed tastes of their own.

Its a shame, but that's how the world works, and we have to remember that most people are stupider than us. To any non-member reading this blog, its true. Just accept it.
