Everything posted by took me long enough

  1. I loved this series and watched it twice. You will hate (at least I did) the last episode. The third season was much less enjoyable than the first two, imo.
  2. I met him at Max's Jukebox in Nashville. He's very nice, very humble.
  3. Off the top of my head and in no particular order: Bill Bruford Mike Portnoy Neil Peart Terry Bozzio Mick Fleetwood
  4. Billy Strings - Home A friend has been trying to get me turned on to him for a while so I finally gave this a listen. Sorry I waited so long. EDIT: Meant to post this earlier...love this song. If you want to skip to the jam, it starts about 4:30 but the whole song is worth listening to.
  5. Can't believe this is 30 years old. Love how Chris comes in from the intro here:
  6. Never saw the first one, and now I know no need to. By the numbers
  7. I just listened to Blame the Vain a couple days ago. He's put out so much, I've only touched on it. I liked his covers album a lot too. This is a favorite.
  8. If you're a Dolly fan or enjoyed the Ken Burns' CM series, you might be interested in this. First three episodes of a 9 part series out now. Focuses on her early years and songwriting. The only sour note is the strange dance-mix overdubs interspersed periodically. "She just had a knack for imagining lives that weren't being seen." "What you get from her is a relentless optimism, a relentless hope." Can Dolly Parton heal America? That's the question posed by a new podcast from WNYC, Dolly Parton's America, hosted by Radiolab's Jad Abumrad. It's not as far-fetched as you might think. The public radio host saw something in the iconic country singer — the way she's composed of contradictions — that seemed somehow revelatory of the country as a whole. Dolly's concert-attending fan base is composed of people we don't think of having a lot in common these days. "You've got evangelical church ladies standing next to men in drag — Dolly is massive in the LGBTQ community — standing next to guys in trucker hats," Abumrad says. "All of these different communities, on either side of the 'culture wars,' all standing together, shoulder-to-shoulder, singing the same song." NPR's Ari Shapiro spoke to Abumrad about reexamining Dolly's cultural legacy, including her overlooked musical genius, her ability to exist as a container for so many ideas about America and her unexpected rejection of the label "feminist." full link: https://www.npr.org/2019/10/29/774339834/can-dolly-parton-heal-america?fbclid=IwAR1kNPbi1TsBW5Jp8uqL34A3cwKghoTygV5WKHJ-1NnwPz6A39pDPD1aw6k https://open.spotify.com/show/0dfJjJyNxF9iW7zmBtLnBf https://open.spotify.com/show/0dfJjJyNxF9iW7zmBtLnBf?si=AfR474M2Qj60cqL4LfbYCg
  9. My sentiment exactly. The whole WS project culminating in this beautiful, moving film is absolutely the jewel of the crown of his career. He is a visionary. WS is his legacy. I also didn't cry much during the first watch but cried through much of the second viewing. Glad you were able to see it a theater.
