DJ Hairy Larry presents The Shugga Shane Band playing “I Don’t Want To Be”.

01. DJ Hairy Larry Presents The Shugga Shane Band
02. Something Blue – Waiting – 29 second spot

Thanks Marty, today we’re going to hear some blues rock recorded at Blues Fest.

Shugga Shane, Jay Shepherd, and Charles Jones played many times at the Craighead Forest Bandshell, first as The Shugga Shane Band and then as Three Minute Genius. They were always crowd pleasers playing songs the audience knew and loved. On September 20, 2009, they also featured a guest vocalist, Maja.

These fine musicians not only play great they also know how to entertain an audience. And they’re so photogenic. You can find the link to the whole concert and photos of the show at the Something Blue website, sbblues.com.

On Something Blue this week we’ll feature some more songs from this show including one sung by Maja.

Ok now, here’s The Shugga Shane Band recorded at Blues Fest on September 20, 2009, doing “I Don’t Want to Be”.

Give The Gift Of Used Books - 2022-05-20 05:46 PM


Give the gift of used books

Hi,

I've been under the weather and my mother-in-law has been faring worse. I return not with a music diary but with a gift giving diary. Although it is Christmas Eve this advice is not just for Christmas gifts. Gifts are wonderful things appropriate for other holidays, birthdays, and unbirthdays.

I have a large family and I was a math major as my family grew. It didn't take much calculation to figure out that even ten dollar gifts were unaffordable. Say we had seven of us around the tree opening presents. And say each person gave everyone only one present (which never happens at our house) We are talking seven people giving six presents each. 42 presents at $10 each is $420. Now that may not touch your Christmas budget but at the time I was a part-time student part-time employed with full-time financial responsibilities. $420 was not only impossible it never even made an appearance.

So we found Santa Claus everywhere. We went to flea markets and junk stores and best of all, library sales. This is when I learned to give the gift of used books.

Here are some of the advantages to giving used books.

1. Inexpensive. I buy used books for a quarter, fifty cents or a dollar all year long. When I buy a really nice book for a gift I sometimes go as high as three dollars. Yep, thats my upper limit. Really nice gifts for $3 or less. Affordable. And if I'm really broke or can't get out I already have shelves of books. I can shop at home.

2. No reciprocal obligation. I realize that most of my family will be giving me a present at Christmas. But sometimes when I'm out shopping a book screams a friend's name at me. I'll pick it up and wrap it for them knowing that I am not placing a reciprocal obligation on them. I even tell them how cheap I bought it when I give it to them. I am not concerned that they may feel an obligation to return a gift that they cannot afford.

3. Personal. If I know someone well enough to give them a gift I probably know their interests. I may even know their preference in reading. A well chosen used book says I know you and I love you. I think about you even when I'm shopping.

4. Regiftable. Whether read, glanced through, or unopened a used book is perfect for regifting. I mean that's what used books are for. Read them (or not) and pass them on.

5. Life changing. A correctly chosen book given at the right moment may change a person's life. Just try to think of some fifty dollar piece of plastic from Walmart that has that power. You can't.

6. Entertaining. Even if you don't give a gift that changes a life you might still give someone a few hours of entertainment. It's hard to beat that for a wonderful present.

I'm sure there are many more reasons to give used books. Please add them in the comments. Also post used books you have given or received that have changed a life or provided a few hours of entertainment.

Thanks,

Hairy Larry

From The Archives Of Something Blue May 15 2022 - 2022-05-15 09:00 AM

From The Archives Of Something Blue May 15, 2022

http://sbblues.com/2022/05/15/from-the-archives-of-something-blue-may-15-2022/

Thanks Marty, today we're hearing a song I wrote, recorded right here in Northeast Arkansas.

On April 6, 2013, NJHB played their fourth performance at TheArts@311 in downtown Jonesboro. NJHB performances are more like an event then a rehearsed band with a different set of musicians at every show playing all original songs often with new charts put up on the music stands for their first performance.

At the show we had guest star, Chris "Stinger" Stevens, on guitar. Also playing were Mike "Zif" Lovell - guitar, Carl Abraham - drums, and Hairy Larry - piano, all from the Jonesboro area except for Chris who travelled in for the show.

On that night we had no bass and no horns but we soldiered on and played our show with half a band.

When listening to the recordings I loved the sound, especially the guitar work by Stevens and Lovell. So I mixed the songs to what is called a stub and then I wrote overdub scripts for bass and sax. Two of my friends agreed to come to my studio to play the overdubs and so I got Corey Emerson on bass and Cody Ballard on tenor sax.

So this song was recorded at TheArts@311 and at HairyLarryLand. Corey and Cody are such excellent musicians that they nailed everything first take. If you listen carefully sometimes it sounds like the guitars are answering the sax when, of course, the sax was recorded after the guitars.

So now, from the NJHB "Stinger" album here's a song I wrote called "Mosaic".

https://archive.org/details/hl2013-04-06

music

And that's NJHB playing "Mosaic" recorded at New Jazz In Jonesboro on April 6, 2013, with the bass and sax overdubbed later. Don't miss Something Blue, Saturday night at 10:00, to hear Mark Turner and Sun Ra.

Gamer+ News May 13, 2022

https://gamerplus.org/blogs/post/915

Ok, the big weekend has arrived. It's the Grand Opening at Eclectic Geekery with games and events every day. It's like a gaming convention in a book store. If you like books and games you should go.

More info including a video and a poster here.

https://www.facebook.com/eclecticgeekerystore

There will be RPG games; D&D 5e, Chronicles of Ember, Dungeon Crawl Classics, and All Outta Bubblegum; and a Miniature Paint and Take. Special thanks to Alan Wortman, Kier Heyl, Will Hose, and Liz Brown for running events!

Meanwhile, back at the ranch, Inspired Unreality open game chat will continue as usual. This week is bring your own topic so if you can't make it to Eclectic Geekery on Saturday at least you can join us chatting about games online.

Inspired Unreality is held every Saturday at 11:00 AM Central in the gamerplus chatrooms at Tenkar's Tavern on Discord. More info and a link here.

https://gamerplus.org/index

Next week on Inspired Unreality we will have Actual Play live from Eclectic Geekery. I will be running my game, Just Quest, a rules light system with an OSR feel and we will be adventuring in Tobbins Shire. Everyone is welcome and if you can't sit around a table with us you can play online.

Thanks to ZDL for sending an error report. By the time I checked on it Gamer+ was running fine again. I am still committed to upgrading Gamer+ to better software and running it on my own server. That's just the kind of project I love and I'm looking forward to working on it this summer. The old Gamer+ will remain with all the content we love so much. It will become a static history of the first years on Gamer+ without accepting new posts or gamers.

https://gamerplus.org/user/ZDL

On a personal note I am planning on recording with my band, Bebop Beatniks, Monday night. I can't tell you how much I'm looking forward to that.

Please forward this email to your gaming friends and share this link.

DJ Hairy Larry presents Big Red and The Soul Benders playing "They Call Me Big Mama".

01. DJ Hairy Larry Presents Big Red and The Soul Benders
02. Something Blue - Aspect - 29 second spot

Thanks Marty, today we'll hear Big Red sing a Big Mama Thorton song at KASU Bluesday Tuesday in Newport.

I met Kelly and Mike jamming at Blues Fest and at the King Biscuit Blues Festival. They put together a fantastic blues act called Big Red and The Soul Benders so I was happy to hear I would get to record them at Bluesday Tuesday in Newport, Arkansas. When I was setting up my microphones I got another surprise. They had brought Jawbone from Jawbone and Jolene to play harmonica. Jawbone and Jolene had also played at Blues Fest several times so it was great to hear him again. It's a small blues world in Arkansas.

Step forward a few years and I was down at The Biscuit and my friend Black Oak Slim invited me to take a walk. We went down to Cherry Street and he took me into a club on the corner. And there was Kelly and Mike, it was their club and they had a piano picker playing music. When he took a break they invited me to play. I borrowed a guitar and did the best I could.

I was sad to hear several years later that their club had burned down.

Kelly, aka Big Red, knows what the job of a blueswoman is. Sure, you have to sing. But more importantly you have to reach your audience and entertain. Here's Big Red and The Soul Benders recorded live at KASU Bluesday Tuesday on May 11, 2010, singing the Big Mama Thornton song, "They Call Me Big Mama".

Now that's the blues, Big Red and The Soul Benders doing "They Call Me Big Mama" at Bluesday Tuesday in Newport, Arkansas, on May 11, 2010. Don't miss Something Blue, Saturday night at 10:00, to hear Ominous Seapods, John Popper, and Umphrey's McGee.

From The Archives Of Something Blue May 1 2022 - 2022-05-02 10:31 AM

DJ Hairy Larry presents Jazz Alliance playing "Blues In A Hurry".

01. DJ Hairy Larry Presents Jazz Alliance
02. Something Blue - Walker - 29 second spot

Thanks Marty, today we're going to hear some original jazz recorded right here in Jonesboro.

It was Jazz Alliance that brought me back to ASU to complete my music education. I was attending their shows at The Edge Coffeehouse and one night I was talking to Janie Overall and she told me about the Silver Scholar program in Arkansas where the state pays the tuition of students over 60. I had taken percussion in the eighties including Marimba lessons and I just loved working with the mallets. So I talked to Mr. Collison and signed up for lessons. I also signed up for jazz improv lessons with Dr. Horton, Director of Jazz Studies at ASU. And from there I went on to composition, theory, performance, conducting, all of the great things you learn in music school.

While all of this was going on I recorded a Jazz Alliance album, "Partly Cloudy". Featuring Ron Horton, trumpet, Craig Collison, percussion; Dave Eckert and Derek Doyle, bass; and Mike Overall, drums; the album was recorded at live concerts over a period of months. It was worth the effort, the album is a gem featuring songs written by Ron Horton. It memorializes the band with a permanent record of the music they made.

I also want to give a shout out to my friend and teacher, Craig Collison who just retired from his position as Director of Percussion at ASU. He brought me back to ASU and then last December I graduated and this Spring he retired.

I have been playing with drummers that he taught for the last 12 years and I have to say they are all excellent musicians. The skill of the student is a tribute to the teacher.

So now, from their "Partly Cloudy" album here's Jazz Alliance playing the Ron Horton song, "Blues In A Hurry", recorded at Gracie's Place in Jonesboro, Arkansas on May 14, 2010.

And that's Jazz Alliance playing "Blues In A Hurry" from their "Partly Cloudy" album. Don't miss Something Blue, Saturday night at 10:00 to hear more Jazz Alliance, Dave Holland, Kevin Eubanks, and GoGo Penguin.

From The Archives Of Something Blue April 24, 2022

http://sbblues.com/2022/04/24/from-the-archives-of-something-blue-april-24-2022/

Thanks Marty, today we're going to hear a jazz standard played on a Steinway Baby Grand.

Suzanne and Fred have played for us regularly at Blues Fest, Bebopalooza, New Jazz In Jonesboro, they even came up from Little Rock to sing at my Senior Recital. Suzanne is a musician and an educator who gave private lessons from her studio in Little Rock. Besides teaching guitar and vocals Suzanne also plays and teaches piano.

When Fred had a chance to acquire a baby grand through an inheritance it was an opportunity they couldn't pass up. First the piano had to go to Steinway for a refurbish. And then it had to be moved to Little Rock. It's the kind of instrument that really sets off a studio both visually as well as with that great Steinway sound. There's a link on the Something Blue website at sbblues.com to some pictures Fred took of the piano.

I went to Little Rock for a weekend to record Suzanne playing her Steinway Baby Grand. She played originals, traditional songs, and jazz standards. Suzanne is the kind of musician that doesn't just play the notes. She plays the overtones, something Fred Hersch discusses on his Youtube videos. I did my best to get the sound of the piano in the room onto the recordings.

So now, recorded by Suzanne Michell in December of 2008, here's the jazz standard, "Tenderly".

https://archive.org/details/winter_interlude

And that's Suzanne Michell playing "Tenderly" on her Steinway Baby Grand. Don't miss Something Blue, Saturday night at 10:00, to hear DJ Logic and The Special Purpose.

Do Hobbits Drink Hot Chocolate - 2022-04-23 08:32 PM

Do Hobbits Drink Hot Chocolate?

This was the first topic of discussion on Inspired Unreality today and after several discouraging searches concluding that Middle Earth has no chocolate I finally found the result I was looking for.

"Chocolate is mentioned in an draft of Bilbo's Farewell Party. Hobbits produced chocolate themselves, or bought from other peoples:

He stepped down. One hundred and forty-four flabbergasted hobbits sat back speechless. Mr Proudfoot removed his feet from the table. Mrs Proudfoot swallowed a large chocolate and choked. Then there was complete silence for quite forty winks, until suddenly every Baggins, Took, Brandybuck, Chubb, Grubb, Burrowes, Bracegirdle, Boffin and Proudfoot began to talk at once."

- https://www.quora.com/search?q=Chocolate%20is%20mentioned%20in%20an%20draft%20of%20Bilbo%27s%20Farewell%20Party.%20Hobbits%20produced%20chocolate%20themselves%2C%20or%20bought%20from%20other%20peoples%3A

Click (more) and scroll down.

Although these words did not make it into the book we clearly see hot chocolate described. I mean after all how could the hobbit mommys get all their little hobbits home for elevenses without serving a nice mug of chocolate?

I found the full text.

"Lastly, to make an Announcement. He said this so loudly and suddenly that
everyone sat up who could. I regret to announce that - though, as I have said, 71 years is far too short a time among you - this is the END. I am going. I am leaving after dinner. Good-bye!

He stepped down. One hundred and forty-four flabbergasted hobbits sat
back speechless. Mr Proudfoot removed his feet from the table. Mrs Proudfoot
swallowed a large chocolate and choked. Then there was complete silence for
quite forty winks, until suddenly every Baggins, Took, Brandybuck, Chubb,
Grubb, Burrowes, Bracegirdle, Boffin and Proudfoot began to talk at once.

'The hobbit's mad. Always said so. Bad taste in jokes. Trying to pull the fur
off our toes (a hobbit idiom). Spoiling a good dinner. Where's my handkerchief. Won't drink his health now. Shall drink my own. Where's that bottle. Is he going to get married? Not to anyone here tonight. Who would take him? Why good¬bye? Where is there to go to? What is he leaving?' And so on. At last old Rory Brandybuck (8) (well-filled but still pretty bright) was heard to shout: 'Where is he now, anyway? Where's Bilbo?'

There was not a sign of their host anywhere.

As a matter of fact Bilbo Baggins had disappeared silently and unnoticed in
the midst of all the talk. While he was speaking he had already been fingering a small ring (9) in his trouser-pocket. As he stepped down he had slipped it on - and he was never seen in Hobbiton again."

from Bilbo's Last Song by J.R.R. Tolkien

AI Autocomplete

In the future everyone will have AI Autocomplete, first for writing, then for talking. The AI will be so good that it soon starts guessing right 100% of the time. People select the Just Say It For Me option since their AI Autocomplete always guesses right.

This is the future of humanity, packhorses for AI Autocompletes talking to each other.

Or is it already happening now?

DJ Hairy Larry presents NJHB playing "Neo Soul Jam #1".

01. DJ Hairy Larry Presents NJHB
02. Something Blue - Heart - 29 second spot

Thanks Marty, today we're hearing some Neo Soul recorded at the Jonesboro Public Library.

New Jazz In Jonesboro moved to the Round Room where we played three seasons in 2018 and 2019. Our first show at the library was on September 1, 2018. NJHB plays all original songs and Joseph Curtis brought in a great new chart called "Neo Soul Jam #1".

Playing on the song were Joseph Curtis - trumpet, Hunter Durham - trumpet, David Hall - woodwinds, Emily Lindsley - vibes, Tyler Worsham - piano, Alex Washam - drums, and Hairy Larry - bass. Every one of us took jazz at ASU and we're all from Northeast Arkansas.

There were no rehearsals. Joseph brought the chart in and we put it up on the music stands and played it. In true NJHB tradition we improvised the arrangement, not just the solos. Improvisation is the core of jazz musicianship and sometimes when something is new and exciting the musicians step up and deliver. And, as you will hear, that's exactly what happened.

Now, recorded on September 1, 2018, here's the Joseph Curtis song, "Neo Soul Jam #1".

And that's "Neo Soul Jam #1" by Joseph Curtis, recorded by NJHB on September 1, 2018. Don't miss Something Blue Saturday night at 10:00 to hear more NJHB, Fred Hersch, and Ahmad Jamal.

Last week Duca schooled me in the arts of EU4. He's into historical role playing too. A history buff playing down through the centuries.

Lately I've been posting some of my writing and session summaries so I thought I would feature another Gamer+ gamer today.

Call To March
Follow Me And Die

I had this idea for a short story. I started it about an hour before the Wednesday night game I play in. This is a first draft with minimal editing for the most grievous typos. I’m curious what you think of it.

The youth, slim of build and lean, not yet muscled from long marchings with pack and armor looked to the grizzled veteran. Young Jaran idolized the aged veteran, survivor of many battles, who bore a white scar over his sightless left eye.

Hurry lads, grab your packs and cinch them well before the call to march ends!

How far today, Goram? came the call in unison from the youthful members of the company.
