    @g711
    those “Roll Your Own” sets (and the Head Sets on the Dead channel) are usually horrible. I heard one during a long car ride last week where the guy choose all Dead ballads. unreal. you get the chance to blow heads open and you have them spin an acoustic FotD and some shitty vince tune.

  5. Guyute711 Says:

    I only heard a couple songs. The end of a UM song and then Antelope. The problem was in between he spoke. He was hettier than thou brah. Told the wooks to take a shower this summer, he may have given big ups to his peeps, said some other corny line and I’m pretty sure he did it all from the driver’s seat of his dad’s Range Rover.

    By the way, anyone catch that Marley documentary? Caught it over the weekend On Demand. (Thanks @Dr. P for the head’s up!)

    Really well done. Very cool stuff about the Smile Jamaica concert and 56 Hope Rd. I thought the stuff about the political war in Jamaica and the rudeboy enforcers was great, too. Interesting to hear how cool Rita was with the whole groupies thing, too.

    I wish there was little bit more about the Scratch era but seeing as how Scratch refuses to relate to a shared reality these days, I can see why it was only briefly covered. Plus, there’s the fact that Bunny Wailer was an assistant producer and he and Scratch haven’t played nice in decades.

    Only other point of contention was that it’s the second major reggae documentary released in the last two years to show the outside of the Channel One studio while referring to Coxsone Dodd and his Studio One. (The Upsetter being the other one.) wtf?

    @MiA You know it! Back to the grind…

    Still pissed at the ps network for dropping the ball on the movie for me. Couldn’t get the movie fully loaded so I only saw part of it for 7.99. The images were totally amazing. I was shocked to see such a poor area that was as beautiful as that was. The landscape was incredible.

  8. tela'smuff Says:

    Silly, you spend a LOT of time thinking, which i guess is what makes you a good kid, but you need to shut that brain down a bit man. the only thing i can offer besides that is sometimes you got to dig some ditches before you can live the dream. the harder you work now, the more it pays off in the long run. wish i would have followed that advice, but instead i allowed myself to be consumed with the 8-5 Babylon BS when i was your age. the quicker you join the race, the quicker you can reach the finish line. kinda like ripping the band-aid off right? 😉

    that is of course assuming you don’t have someone to kick you down a small fortune via a trust fund. if so, go by some land and grow something. a hops farm seems like a good start.

  9. MiA Says:

    Says the guy with a hops garden. 😉

  10. MiA Says:

    I actually agree 100% Tela’s. Responsibility is often given a bad rap. It shouldn’t.

    I’ve always liked hanging around the kids who partied responsibly, and loathed to party with those that didn’t.

    Facing up to being responsible, is not bending over to Babylon.

  11. sumodie Says:

    My love for Hawkwind is being rekindled. thnx to discovering new bands like White Hills & Sleepy Sun

    srsly dug hawkwind’s space ritual today

    meanwhile I’m loving what i hear of white hills. grabbed their 2010 self titled album off the ‘noid, plus i keep spinning their recent live show freely available at nyctaper.com

    sleepy sun has a live show at nyctaper too. not quite sure what i think of them yet

    would love to see white hills latenite at a festi like the Roo. someday…

  12. poop goblin Says:

    I see both sides and SW is smart to see himself at the crossroads.

    At 19 no way I was going to follow any kind of path. I had a real us against them attitude towards the college kids and the party/hippy/rasta set I liked to roll with. Didn’t hang out with college kids and kinda considered them the enemy.

    Never paid taxes in my twenties. Never had jobs. Just hustled, travelled, played music, and partied. These years almost killed me but safe to say no era of my life will be filled with so much chaos, excitement, and volatility. Growing up in upple middle class suburbia this is time I needed to trip up and find all that life really had to offer positively and negatively.

    At 30 I got a great job at the very bottom in a very competitive industry. I’d be lying if I said it isn’t an uphill battle. The kids that have been in the game since 22 don’t want to let you in. doesn’t matter what your job skills or how intelligent no way you just jump into Babylon and achieve the respect and pay you would have if you played the game since college. Just doesn’t work that way.

    5 years in I’ve gotten a bunch of raises and more responsibility and am finally getting paid a respectful salary but it has been a battle. A lot of extra work and stress to get up to where I wanted to be. If I’m going to work for 11 hours a day I want to get paid for it.

    So basically SW I wouldn’t change a thing if I had to do but those 8 years off created a bunch of chaos and volatility in my life progression. I tend to like a little chaos though. It worked for me. Hate doing shit by the book. In a weird me those rough and crazy years made me who I am today. If I would have taken that 32 on my ACT and hit U of M and gone straight to wallstreet may even be a bigger asshole than my wook ass now.

  13. sumodie Says:

    Donald Byrd’s 1975 album, places & spaces, is something else too. equal parts heavy funk, serious jazz, & love boat cheese (as in the kinda music played in the Love Boat’s secret swingers club)

    I love it!

    srsly, this album evokes odd imagery in my head. Would make for a wacky short story. Secret swingers club on the love boat, who knew?!?

  14. poop goblin Says:

    space ritual is awesome

    one of the hippest 6 way fold out album covers ever

    Just made the executive decision to take off Friday, this will allow for:

    1) Enjoying Thursday’s DJ Shadow show to the fullest;

    2) Watching the Marley doc on the home system via On Demand, on Friday, with the Mrs. at work so I can keep it at the proper volume level (see: loud) with intermittent pauses to step outside for safety breaks.

  16. IrieWalton Says:

    Are you hitting that Shadow show @ Garrett?
    If not, you should definitely consider it.

    The guy is a master of the ones and twos, plus the Wonder Ballroom is probably my favorite venue in this town.

  17. lumpyhead Says:

    saw DJ Shadow at Coachella. It was great.

  18. garretc Says:

    Nah IW, I didn’t even know about it ’til just now…

    This is going to sound like a really lame reason to not be able to go, and, admittedly, it kinda is, but still: I have yoga Thursday nights, and I’ve already missed two classes, won’t get PE credit for it if I miss another one… And I’d prefer not to have to take anymore pe classes again next year…

    But that sucks, I woulda been down for that

  19. IrieWalton Says:

    I hear ya, G.

    But Shadow spins late into the night (probably won’t start till 10), plus now that you’re of age you wouldn’t even need to crawl in through the window.

  20. MiA Says:

    I never figured out how to live the life of a trust fund kid without having a true parent with a trust fund. My family is middle class. Successful, but middle class. I don’t think I was creative enough.

    My parents made me pay for 100% of my college. Figured it would make me care. And it did. I got Pell grants, Academic Scholarships and Work Study, but in the end the $40K of loans between me and Mrs. MiA were mine.

    If I would have ended up in jail or some minor distribution charge, I don’t think my Dad was gonna bail me out. That lack of “safety net” made me pretty anxious to get a job quickly.

  21. tela'smuff Says:

    yeah, what AW said! good perspective.

    but, in my early to mid 20’s, had i not travelled with a carnival, gone into debt hitting shows, worked for a sewer district in Big Sky, MT, backpacked across the west, attempted becoming a PGA instructor, and ingested a multitude of foreign substances (well, some things u can’t change 8O), i’d maybe be able to retire when i turn 50. in hindsight, i would have preferred retirement at 50 with some land, playing with my kids and grandkids, and traveling with the wife.

    but again, sometimes you can’t over think it. after spending my 20’s f’in things up and having fun doing it, as i approach 40 i’m doing as well as those who played life by the book. you just got to roll with what presents itself and hang on, with some minor planning/preparation in between.

    Both the teacher and the taught together, create the teaching.

    I am soooo still learning.

  23. garretc Says:

    That’s a good point then, IW! I’ll look into making it, see if I can get that done

  24. sumodie Says:

    I’m over emphasizing the love boat cheese on byrd’s album. Often it evokes imagery of being in the swankiest opium funk palaces of the 70s.

    Album is distinctly different from herbie hancock, funkadelic, & jazz/rock fusion music from the 70s that I’m acquainted with

  25. poop goblin Says:

    All my friends had gardens MIA and I was a loud wook that new tons of kids. Besides the stress of manageing 20 lbs fronted to my wook ass friends once every 3 months was pretty easy to get by.

    I wish I was mature enough at 19 to have worried about getting caught.

    Young and invincible. Never crossed my mind. Driving to shows with 1,000 pressies in the ride wouldn’t even sweat it at all.

    These days get nervous puffin a spliff in a car on the way to a movie. Oh to be young and dumb again.

    knock on wood though. other than probably a half dozen under 8 gram possession charge never got fucked with any weight.
