That is hauntingly beautiful. Just watching how he flicks his index finger as a back rhythm for what the rest of his hand is doing is amazing.

And speaking of music, rock took another kick to the shins when some nameless corporate schmoe set up the account for a Wal-Mart commercial to feature AC/DC's Back in Black.

I just got back from a pretty awesome 13 day sports trip to the Mid-West.

Here's what I saw live on the trip:

Games I saw live on my trip:

Pens vs Sens
Bengals vs Browns
Jackets vs Blues (same day as Bengals/Browns )
Ohio State vs Duke (men's basketball)
Red Wings vs Lightning
Blackhawks vs Isles
Bears vs Chiefs (worst football game ever played by two offences on the same field)

The longest I went without watching a live event over 13 days was 2 days, which was at the start of the trip.

Awesome! What were the best venues and best crowds?

My old bass teacher was incredible on the instrument. Just, insanely good. So good that during one lesson, I asked him to help me figure out "You Can't Hold No Groove." My teacher got to a point where he wasn't sure what Wooten was doing, so he took out his cell phone...and ****ing called him and asked. This was just a bit mindblowing..but he was indeed good enough to be on speaking terms with victor wooten. A real bargain at 20 bucks a lesson. (understatement.)

My point here is that my teacher was incredibly accomplished. His left hand skills and slap skills were excellent, and that's why I was going to him...my left hand skills were and still are lacking. However, after a couple months...my teacher was looking at me and trying to learn from me when it came to right-hand fingerstyle technique. It led to an interesting collaboration. Anyways, my point here is that when it comes to right handed bass playing, I'm no slouch at all. Primus? No problem. Tool? Whatever, most of it is done with a pick, fancy thumbwork is more efficient anyways. However...this Steve Bailey song...holy ****. It's so far above and beyond my skill level I have no words for it. Not only does he have his index finger playing a constant drone, he's also throwing in an insane amount of false harmonics, which are all in tune.

Steve Bailey is easily the most under-appreciated musician alive. (That statement might be a bit dramatic, but whatever)

That (cell call to Victor Wooten) is an incredible story, Beef. I'd be catching flies standing next to him.

This video is the kind that makes non-players say, "I want to play to be like that," and players of lesser talent say, "I don't ever want to play again." I'm in the latter category (guitar, not bass), just mediocre enough to lead simple songs at church.

I have the twitter app. If you have an account thats always useful. Scorecenter, and NHL gamecenter are good as well. Other than that I have all my weather apps and local news accounts also haha. The app "around me" is useful when you need to know where local establishments or anything of that sorts is around you. Thats about all I have hope any little bit helps. There also is a website that can help with the best apps but I dont't know what it is sorry

Not much of a phone gamer. I downloaded solitaire and snake but that's about as far as I go when it comes to games and phones.

Holy **** haha. That's awesome. I don't think I'd be able to comprehend what was going on when he did that.

Terrible isn't the word for that. The girl with brown hair at the end looks familiar but I don't know where I know her from
