    Waiting during a job search/between interviews to hear back is the worst.

    Sounds like you got a good chance, Duder.

    BTFD is right. BAC’s movement of some amount of it’s ~$53 Trillion of it’s Derivatives from it’s holding company to the bank backed by the FDIC is a pretty smooth move also.

    Cincy Tweezer!

    awesome news on the book, Mr. Miner. Cover looks great.

  12. bob dylan Says:

    Work got you down you say?

    Spin some culture on your break. Singing out slavery and it’s uplifting. Reggae is cool like that.

    Dang, the Raiders just picked up Palmer for 2 first round picks.

    Looks like even from the grave, Al “Just Win, Baby” Davis is leading that team.

  15. Jtran Says:

    bobd is such a custy he listens to music other custies are currently listening to 😉

  16. Beantownboy Says:

    ^ Not the BB’s Palmer but Palmer as in Carson “I am retired” Palmer.

    Culture > 2Pac (segue symbol not greater than)

    My chill zone just got riled up. “I mean he’s taking about killing people, I had sex with your wife, and not in those words, but he’s talking about I wanna see you deceased”

  18. MrCompletely Says:

    twin albums: albums you can put in a single playlist, mix the tracks so they alternate back and forth, and have it work perfectly

    Kind of Blue and Coltrane’s My Favorite Things has been my go-to example

    Now I find that – and this is not surprising but it is a bunch of trancey goodness – the new Tinariwen album and the Bombino release are similarly matched. Different enough to make it dynamic, but similar enough to be smooth.

  19. EL Duderino Says:

    this looks very very promising.

    twin album: ok computer and in rainbows


    …pretty sure i first heard about this on this very message board… but its another good example of the “twin album” concept

  24. EL Duderino Says:

    it’s got Darol Angor that’s all i need to know and the cat who commented on this file set says it has sbd/matrix quality.

    about half done

  25. plord Says:

    @El Dude I was at that Grisman show and it was AWESOME. This looks like a cherry upgrade to my XLIIs, I’m all over that like white on rice.

    I remember Vassar slaying the Old and in the Way reunion material, and the Dawg’s bull encore is one big cutfest, everyone from all bands on stage taking a chorus or two.
