I like the pick. Kind of like a stripper gone C.I.A. And, from the pic, avatar, looks like you have some "Bigg' uns" sorry, I meant "Big Guns". Make 'em count - agreed. One pops, two kills.

I think these guys are from a bit south of Oklahoma, but some pretty impressive steel guitar. I think they have a big Family, "O'hana", too

You are somewhat correct, Autie, "there is more to life than that buttrock". But not too much. Man, you have a huge family! Here are some crazy radicals from the day...

Later this morning, just after 4:30 a.m. LDCFM and LPD were called to the 300 block of Elm Street on a reported structure fire. The caller was unable to answer the questions that emergency dispatchers were asking. She was only able to tell dispatchers that "her chair is on fire." Fire crews arrived and at first did not find anything, after locating the caller and removing her from the apartment, crews did find a chair that was smoking. The resident of that apartment was checked out by a medic unit on the scene, it did not sound as though anyone was transported away from the scene. 1. Did she say her chair, or her hair? 2. Do not allow your chairs to smoke. Smoking is hazardous to the heart, lungs, and upholstery.

Ronaldo, if we ever meet in person, the first thing I would like you to do is give me a demonstration of how to play the Swiss Alpine Horn.

In the next, video iteration of Dear Lawrence Project, there'll be footage of Hollis stealing back his pic of a pic of himself. It'll be a video of a video of his retrieval of his pic of a pic. Eventually, we'll all be holographic, subsysting on Mandelbeer&brots.

Red Sovine, like the majority of country music singers, was a pervert. Take this song at face value. He should have been locked up, along with the skeeve who did the artwork. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=06MfMa...

I was in that project. In 1978 I passed out in front of Harbour Lights with no shoes or shirt on at 4 pm. Well, Tues. afternoon I did the exact same thing, except now the Harbour is a frat boy bar. Some dilrod took a pic of me. And now it's a pic of a pic of me. So I went down to that gallery and stole it. I will not be associated with a frat boy bar.

The Dear Lawrence Project is based on Alan Parsons Project, a project that should have been aborted before it started. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nvwrSdMY7dQ

Dig the bass line on "What's Going On?" Organic, but pretty complicated. No effect pedals or thumb slapping, not for James Jamerson, one of the most sought after Motown session players in history. He got really bitter when all the flashy stuff started in the '80's and he couldn't get work. He more or less drank himself to death. 1936-1983.

Tried to see the exhibit last night, but the line wasn't moving, there seemed to be confusion about where the line started, which direction it was going and some people inside couldn't get to the door to leave. After observing all that for a few minutes, I left. Hope to see it somewhere else in town.

Why not make copies of the presentation and sell them to raise money for a local charity? I would have bought a copy. It was a great exhibit, if not a little crowded.

Denisty must run in your family as well. The LJW has been talking about this even before Lindsay left.

Eighteenth. First.

It was almost cooler to have this project as a way to see the inside of that building finally.

My favorite picture in the show was of the bird flying away from the barbed wire fence. Also notable was the one of Nick Krug and his dad on the sidewalk.

But really you guys, for all the buildup this project has received here, only one night run for three hours? Come on. It was packed. Give everyone a chance to see them. Why not put them up somewhere for a while?

Is where I was coming from, Roe. Ergo,WTF? But am still asking...Project ?? Hmm

Is an old song : Written by one, sang by many. May not be the best version but I wanted to give it shot. I think Tex Ritter may have done it better as an old ode...hard to find though....

I did write a letter to 'Dear Abbey' one time. She accused me of being a group from Harvard making up stuff to see if 'we' could get a response in the paper. I swore this kinda stuff you can't make up, and I didn't even know Hollis then. Or spacehog. Hell, I didn't even have a computer back then!

Apologize. What in the heck, exactly, is, "The Dear Lawrence Project?" Hell, I built Babcock, with Wayne Jimboy, just to help the elders. And then we only got paid our first and second draw. And Wayne was the one holding the bag of nothing... Fair??

"HollisBrown (anonymous) says…

Marlon Perkins had a lot of fun. More importantly, this is right up Autie's alley. Kind biographical, from back in the day when Aut was doing the realtoress gig. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fqLh3O..."

Loved the tune, Hollis. Question, though. As Marlin got older do you thing he started to make Jim do all the rough stuff? ergo:

Jim may have been thrown "under the bus" a few times...ya think?

In other music news, Pat Metheny is playing Liberty Hall next month. I've always wanted to see him, but not for $55 + tax. I can get an eighth of really good weed for the same price.
