  1. Vaya Con Dios, Manny! The plight of the 2018 Orioles

    I'd like to see those guys in Baltimore soon. Specifically Mullins and Harvey. If some of the kids don't come up and get some seasoning this year, it's truly a waste of a season.

    Any chance Rockets win tomorrow night? Probably not from what I can tell but I can hope.

    "They were beaten by a great player..." Announcers don't even try to hide it.

    That's game. Maybe LeBron's most impressive feat yet. I dunno, I can't hate on that guy. Like I know I should because I pull for the Wizards (not like I used to when I watched a ton of NBA) but LeBron is incredible. Gotta give credit when it's due. Class act, has a social conscious, amazing basketball player.

    Rozier doesn't look to pass that trip down the floor? Terrible.

    Tatum isn't backing down at all.

    It's garbage, but good tasting garbage. That said, homemade tacos done right are where it's at.
  12. Favorite Artist/Band in Favorite Genre???

    I got my first Hendrix album when I was 13, and it was Band of Gypsys which is an odd place to start if you're getting into his music. I'm not sure why I picked it but I loved it and wanted to hear more. So I snatched up every Hendrix CD I could and became obsessed. I think the part that grabbed me the most was that there was always something new I heard in the songs, a guitar part, bass line (that's him playing on All Along The Watchtower). You know how it is, some days depending on on your mood certain songs strike you in certain ways. This first one is one that sounds amazing to me no matter what day it is. I remember getting this album in high school right before a family vacation to the beach. I distinctly remember having fallen asleep with my headphones on and waking up to the 2nd half of this song and having no earthly idea what the **** was going on and being completely blown away. If you go to the link, the first comment is "2:47 onwards and upwards, with ear goggles!", which is where the best part starts....and how it should be listened to, with headphones. How the sound moves around, forwards, backwards, it just didn't make any sense to me. I played it over and over and over again. Sometimes I still do. But through Hendrix, I learned about the blues because that's what he was at his core, a true blues master. All that psychedelic, freak out, feedback and backwards guitars is awesome but at the core there's a lot of blues. In researching him I learned a lot about his influences and started listening to them, too...BB King, Buddy Guy, Muddy Waters, all that stuff. Hendrix definitely had his own sound and was doing his own thing but learning about what influenced him certainly opened me up to a whole new genre of music that I'd never really listened to before.
