Mr. Woodcock, i had forgotten about that single, which was pretty good. as sidemen i guests they were well liked, but on their own i thought they were lacking. it'll give "what is hip" another listen-thought it was a very catchy single.

Mr. Woodcock, yes we did. i thought it was a hilarious thing to say. i know that tower of power was in great demand as a horn section- little feat used them to screw up several tracks on "waiting for columbus" that were much better without the intrusion of the horns on some great previously recorded songs, like the incredible version of "the rock and roll doctor" that was originally recorded at WILR in 1971 that featured masterful slide work and vocals by lowell george and friends. as sidemen they obviously were well thought of; they just couldn't do much on their own. methinks they had one hit single-"what is hip".

Mr. Woodcock, tower of power was on the bill the last night of the fillmore closing, the night of santana's brilliant performance which included that incredible rendition of "in a silent way". i agree with my good friend andy who stood up in the middle of their set-between songs- and yelled at them "pit of sh*t"- in 100% accord. then groups with good horn sections were blood sweat and tears (for 2 albums) and the electric flag, of michael bloomfield, buddy miles, nick gravitates and harvey brooks. their album "a long time comin" is one of the really great records ever-all sorts of american music played by virtuosos.

Big Baby, pretty lousy game between RM and man city. granted ronaldo was not 100% and benzene was out, but RM was one man city goal from being ousted. except man city had no firepower, and neither did RM.

Big Baby, quite an effort by the lightning last night. went back and forth between the hockey match, the heat and the marlins. gave the remote quite a workout.

gents, saw the who in oakland's coliseum after the dead opened for them. couldn't tell you what a rush i got when the band started their show with the chords that open "can't explain". the dead opened up the bill and were somewhat listenable still, but nothing like the palladium in hollywood when biggie was still with us. maybe the best single show was the last night of the fillmore west closing when santana was unreal and they closed with the incredible 'in a silent way" that was featured in the movie.

Big Baby, had a friend from toronto over to watch the heat and raptors-what a bizarre game. switched back and forth between the NHL and the NBA-almost saw more goals than the youngsters from TO scored points. watched a whole NBA game-that's news!!

Big Baby, also have seen many top bands in/near their prime. saw bruce springsteen at a show for columbia records before he played long, oldies filled shows when he opened the show for kingfish and dr. hook; couldn't handle his little dylan act and told my friends if he put some oldies into his shows he might go somewhere. he went on a tour at the time "born to run" came out which was radio cast and lo and behold out came other people's stuff. "pretty flamingo" was a highlight and is on youtube from that KROQ show.it was a sad statement when 50% of america said his was their favorite band.

Mr. Woodcock, generally asian girls have few curves; however cambodian girls have cabooses and many japanese girls also have on what to sit. vietnamese, thais, koreans (YUCH), filipinos don't.

Big Baby, ATLETICO!!!! possibly a madrid derby if RM ousts man city mañana. bayern was severely depleted- no qarjen robbed really hurt them and kept holland out of the euro 2016 party. the CL final is played on the Holy Sabbath, so i'll get the results after 3 stars are out that night.

Mr. Woodcock, "gas mask" is an appropriate name for tonsil. he was picked by both of SI's draft guru to be the #1 pick and fell to the dolphinsby strapping on that gas mask. we had one of those attached to a corncob pipe, but that was in the days of seeds and stems. today's 25-30% THC in seedless hydroponic weed would be an instant TKO!!!

OC Dolphin, a truly unreal effort by the foxes of leicester. had tottenham won today, i would have been locked out of a home clincher on saturday. as stated to Big Baby, i got to see the 35minutes of the tilt and the +6. were the rams 300-1 to win the SB? they had a 13-3 season capped off by holding that titan feller out of the end zone on the game's last play. they really blew it against NE the next year by not running faulk enough.

Big Baby, LEICESTER CITY!!!!!! got home to a 2-0 spurs lead, and got tom see the chelsea comeback that made a 5,000 to 1 shot champions of the EPL. it's a snowy day in miami when i root for chelsea, but this was an exception. the announcers at the 60' mark were ready to bury chelsea, then a cahill goal resuscitated chelsea and then a really beautiful ball high into the right corner of the goal the leicester what they wanted. spurs is a kinda jewish team, and they have the youngest squad in the premiership and a solidly great gut for a manager. what a season!!!

(the real) david, art tatum, oscar peterson and bill evans- all the keyboarders i need. the comments on some of the youtube go mohini is that she plays so fast that the music disappears., kinda like alvin lee of ten years after. meanwhile, even a musical amateur like me can tell that a she has already mastered her instrument.

(the real) dave, you hip to the 19 year-old hindu bassist mahini dey? incredible mastery of her 5 string electric bass, reaching down the neck to get guitar like sounds out of her instrument. triple wow!!! no offense to john entwhistle or jorma kaukonen or james fielder, but she is to the bass what art tatum was to the piano to these ears. hope you had a good pesach! what is your opinion of then dolphins' first pick? the guy is shaky beyond belief.

OC Dolphin, yeah, i posted about the leicester squad. 5,000 to 1- any loyal supporter on a fancy putting down 100 pounds or euros or dollars would wind up with half a million. would make villanova 85 or buster douglas chump change for a winning wager.

freefall!!!! the dolphins' pick was gonna be the #1 pick in the draft, yet 12 teams or bio passed on him until he was grabbed by the locals. likes the ganja, took money from his college, and looks like trouble i9n the making. saw clips of him, and like most linemen of today he can'r block; all he does is push his man away from the play. if that has become the norm in the NFL, what a sad statement. the guy is gonna probably be a big-time bust. we'll see

Big Baby, ben bishop had a really bad game, and the islanders- my new favorite team left- took advantage. the lightning are far from dead, and will win the series providing their goalkeepers don't have a meltdown. the isles coach is a new yawker, and he has them playing over their heads, which won't last for seven games. tampa has a great coach in cooper and they play a very elevated style. if stamkos comes back, they might sweep the series. now gonna watch liverpool, and will check back in saturdey night after the holiday and Holy Sabbath.

Fzb, no problem with then term chink. of course the politically correct mafia would rather you call him hebes, mau mau, black, "mallate", homo, lesbo/dyke, spic and the rest are fine. Fzb, if laremy tonsil is the best OLman in this years draft, OY VEY!!! no orlando pace types, no jonathan ogden types=noy even a jake long type!!!! in the old days, rookie linemen starting were few and far between-unless the guy is a tom mack type guard, or an anthony munoz type tackle. anthony munoz is one of the all-timers, ranked as then first linemen in any poll of NFL's greatest players. as i've said here many times-pity his opponent who had to deal with anthony munoz-bigger, stronger, quicker, smarter, and faster than any guy who faced him. i went to a USC game against washington state and only watched munoz- on one play from the two he obliterated the DE and pushed him through the back of the end zone!!! lombardi stated that the greatest player he had was the OT forrest gregg; well, i'll chime in with munoz and have ronnie lott and kenny easley right behind, with ed reed. sean taylor and dion sanders in the next tier. whomever the dolphins draft tonight will not vault them over the patriots, even w/o tom brady (i have a completely different order for offensive players). NE can defeat miami w/o tom brady- jimmy g. will have a season just like matt cassell did when brady was hurt.sorry, mi amigo, but that's the way the ole shadow sees it.

(the real) david, first, wishing you a good yontiff! just how good do you think the heat are? seems to me that they are rather mediocre, especially without chris bosh. seems like they can't guard kebab walker, who has been lighting them up in most every game. a team that has to give minutes to josh mcroberts doesn't seem like a powerhouse to me.

Big Baby, ATLETICO!!! jeez, they were in a bad way then second half, but held on to that early goal to defeat bayern. pep underestimated the spaniards- didn't start mueller and left riberry sitting too long. i'll be teaching next week so i won't see the games, but i believe that with c ronaldo RM goes through and same for bayern if they use their talent properly. BM really had the game in the second half but no goals. how did ben bishop give up 3 goals in the first period?

Big Baby, an interesting first 45+ minutes between RM and MC; methinks the very under appreciated midrib will figure in real's, should they put the ball in the goal. losing david silva didn't help the home team, and the ole shadow sees modric and bale figuring in the scoring if RM get a goal. tomorrow bayern will take atletico apart with their star power, figuring robbed will be soon the field for bayern.

Mr. Woodcock, members of the tribe are not DB material; used to be an occasional QB and OLman, no cornerback that i can think of.
