Do you have eyebrow piercings, sleeves of tattoos and wear ironic tshirts?


Too old for that, but we've met so you know that. Music snob. Razz I know it's not your style (i.e. has vocals), but I like it.


Spoon are ace, too.

Wayne Toups & zydecajun, blast from the bayou


Great choice! Have thrown back a few cold ones with Wayne and he's one of the nicest guys you'd ever meet. Amazing on the squeeze box...

Nice anecdote...this is the album that got me hooked on zydeco...back in the mid 80's.

Did not see one minute of debate ( recorded) but just walked into hotel and see where CNN poll said Ryan won.

Most post debate polls are showing a decisive win for Biden, which he did. (Although Ryan didn't take two Ambien before the debate, so it wasn't the same type of evisceration that Romney bestowed upon Obama last week.) The biggest issue, though, will be that Biden stopped the Democratic bleeding. Romney's momentum will have ended and it will shift a little back to Obama -- especially because Biden will have lit up the Democratic base which was disheartened by Obama's performance.

At the end of the day, VP debates don't do too much for outcomes. Biden won, but Ryan didn't totally embarrass himself too much with too many undecideds.

Just picked up the vinyl version last week. Haven't listened all the way through yet, though.


I picked it up on vinyl also. How do you like the format of the 12" and 7"? They want the listener to sit down and pay attention.

Right now

The Band

My favourite album of his is Heart of Saturday Night


I can't get past Closing Time.


Not sure what that means? You think his first album is the best and only good one he did? Or you don't like him, period?

Alabama Shakes...


You like? I have to admit although I have tried, I do not really care for them and I am from Alabama


LOVE them. Hoping to get tickets to the gig in London in a couple weeks at HMV Forum. So bleeding catchy...and the live reviews have been mega, even for non-fans.

I meant I really like it, and due to all the other stuff I listen to, haven't had much time to study subsequent albums (although I have) as much as I'd want to...


Rain Dogs is a desert island album imho.

I'll make note. That would be a good thread. Five albums for the island (and a record player with electricity source, of course).

Oops, I forgot, it is an All French Saturday.

La Damnation de Faust


Nice. When I get home I'm going to start Massenet November. Going to see Werther in the middle of the month.


Nice!

Would work very well for our all French Saturday.

Saw them (2 sets) at the old Cellar Door in Georgetown on my first date with the mother of my kids. Bought my first blues harp the next day. Fond memories.

PH

How did you come along with the harp? We'll be featuring as the entertainment at our first offline together.
