    @auntie em
    yeah, until you realize C3PO is MELTIN’ FUCKIN’ FACES OFF!!! That dude rips, even if he’s more of a composed, prog-style player. not much improvisational ability, but he never misses a note. and he’s fluent in over 6 million forms of communication. which is nice.

  11. [Not Tom] Marshall Says:

  12. Mr.Palmer Says:

    NTM- ACL- Vegas, Indio i’ve heard

  13. Mr.Palmer Says:

    ACL is confirmed, duh

  14. SillyWilly Says:

    @Mr. P


    i survived last saturday with AW.

    the trick is not worrying about keeping up with him.

  15. Leo Weaver Says:

    Evening guys…

    @auntie em…timer said today he heard the west coast will get some love in the fall

  16. Gavinsdad Says:

    Thirding the PDX fall rumor. I have an ok source. Posterkid read the Timers posts.

    Was eyeing up that green gold bond in walgreens earlier with a little fear.

    Mr C – the missions clear. Wish I could take in the Greeks with y’all.

    @fee4zy: I’m a huge Zappa plays Zappa fan. Glad to see the love. He is totally doing his father proud.

    Anyone here of the Carolina Chocolate Drops? They are pretty good.

    Mr C they are playing in your neck of the woods: Jul 7 Oregon Zoo Amphitheater in Portland, OR

    Here is a snippet from their site:
    The Carolina Chocolate Drops are the newest and youngest players in a long lineage of Black String Bands. The tradition traces its roots to musicians from Africa who came to the Americas in the holds of slave ships. The anchor instruments were made of gourds with a neck and a variety of string combinations. The same basic gourd banjo, called the ekontone, is played today in Gambia. Alongside the banjo gourd, musicians devised a number of fiddles, American-born relatives of the African ritti or one-stringed fiddle. Eventually, perhaps under the influence or orders of masters who wanted Irish jigs played in their parlors, black fiddle-players picked up the European violin, taking that instrument back to their cabins, adding classical-style fiddle to banjo and percussion; so the blurring of boundaries began.

    Add Portland’s Rose Garden to the rumor mill

  19. Gavinsdad Says:

    @silly: that’s a solid approach. If I run into the CA boys or AW at hershey I’m very happy to hang with em. Keep up with em is another story. 🙂

  20. Leo Weaver Says:

    @gdad…I picked up a green bottle a few days ago. As a longtime gold bottle user, I have to say the green bottle def has a little more ice to it…borderline scary at first, but quickly gets all ahhhh. Green bottle is already packed!

  21. sumodie Says:

    Bonnaroo webcast schedule here:

    Carolina Chocolate Drops on tomorrow afternoon

  22. Mr.Palmer Says:

    I’ll do the RG if they play there. At least i’ll try my hardest to make it happen.

  23. [Not Tom] Marshall Says:

    Let’s get this Gold Bond thing totally out in the open. I’ve used the yellow bottle before but never the green. What’s the difference? Also, other than preventing chaffing, what are the true benefits/uses?

    I tend to use it front, under, and back. Am I doing it right? There aren’t really instructions on the bottle that I’ve ever seen.

  24. halcyon Says:

    Sweet Sumodie

    They are playing in your neck of the woods in the beginning of September. They are also playing at the World Cafe GDad.


    Sounds like you got it down. The Green Bottle is stronger.

  25. butter Says:
