    #1: I’d rather titty-fuck Al Sharpton than watch the debate.

    Loving the transition out of Dick’s Sand. Red keeps his loops carrying on while the band lands the Ghost groove. sweet delay usage

    the changes coming out of the jams in Sand>Ghost are so subtle and nasty. Crazy harmonic shifting in the chords. Sets the bar so far ahead compared to so many other improvising outfits.. They way Mike can change the root on the band and shift everything, Any jams that aren’t limited to a single chord or set of changes… fucking blows my mind.. Fishman catching some tonal change and shifting the rhythm to meet it.
    Space funk but Ornette Coleman style.

    Come on children. Hate the mormon robot all you want. total weirdo.

    But our accounts job is to pay the lowest tax legally possible

    Hate the tax code not the player. Never get hating a dude that gives millions to charity and pays his legal taxes.

    Yall are fucked for watching the debate though.

  12. Tom Says:

    Just saw the Binders full of women tumblr. Some great stuff in there. Not a huge fan of the moderators in the debates so far. Might just be me though

  13. poop goblin Says:

    Accountants. Sorry.

  14. poop goblin Says:

    No doubt umbrella

    The modulations within the one key vamp jams is all over dicks. Can tell the boys listening at a top level again

    No more auto pilot trey just wailing over everyone and hope Peeps follow like early 3.0

  15. xpun Says:

    I agree poop. Plenty of reasons to hate on Romney. Taking advantage of fucked tax code isn’t one of them.

    If he hadn’t been so uptight about releasing the damn returns maybe it wouldn’t look so fishy.

  16. MiA Says:

    Nice Coleman reference.

  17. poop goblin Says:

    I’m watching segundo debate presidencial

    Just waiting for someone to yell Gooooaaaaalll!!

  18. xpun Says:

    No holds for me yet.

    Went with 1 tic best available. Should have a decent shot at getting thrown in a random row somewhere right?

  19. xpun Says:

    Overdubbed or subtitled poop?

  20. BingosBrother Says:

    Good enough reason for me. Not legal either.

    An excerpt.

    On his 2010 tax return, Romney disclosed that his wife Ann’s trust held $3 million in a Swiss bank account at UBS, which had just been busted by the IRS for abetting criminal tax evasion by U.S. citizens. As part of a $780 million settlement, UBS was forced to turn over the names of thousands of its long-secret clients, who were then offered a partial amnesty: disclose their hidden assets, pay penalties and avoid prosecution. Romney – who had omitted the Swiss account on previous financial disclosures – suddenly came clean. Did he reveal his secret account to avoid prosecution for tax evasion?

    It should be noted that Kossack, Christopher Tucker has a similar theory. In his diary Tucker, hypotheses that:

    Mitt Romney is hiding the fact that- according to US law- he should be in a federal prison, but is only free and running for to be the next US president because of the special “amnesty” program offered to 5000 American financial elite, who violated US law in order to hoard their riches in in an illegal tax-evasion scheme, which was cooked up by Swiss banks & exposed by a heroic whistleblower, who- in accord with the new 1% US morality- was the only one to be imprisoned, while Romney & his elite 1% cronies plotted his White House takeover.

  21. MiA Says:

    Carried interest is bullshit. 15% capital gains help those with unique preferred stocks in companies where theyvare executives get dividends instead of salary.

    Poop, I don’t like 1% dudes lobbying congress to have specialized “carried interest” bullshit. Lobbyists writing tax law is bullshit.

    You manage a hedge and get paid a $5,000,000 commission for meeting goals for tge year or a sales guy who gets a $5,000,000 commission. First pays 15%, the sales guy pays 32%

  22. poop goblin Says:

    A lot of rich Peeps hold off shore cash. Perfectly legally.

    Imo its a witch hunt like lookin for obamas birth certificate.

    funny article though. Believe what you want.

  23. poop goblin Says:

    Legal bullshit MIA

    I don’t hate my boss for doin it until its illegal

    I get carried interest

  24. MiA Says:

    I’m anti Banker. Those guys are clowns.

  25. MiA Says:

    What? I don’t believe you.
