Earl Scruggs

So Yes I like Metal, but that isn't all I like as anyone who reads my blog can tell.... So today on the news I saw that Earl Scruggs died... Now from what I read on line he is credited for how Blue Grass sound.... What I mean is something that I don't get about how he plays with 3 fingers and how his sound got adopted..... That being said I thought that the least I could do is post some youtube videos of what I find......

I admit I don't know if there where be singing or if it will just be Banjo but at least it makes good music to listen to as one reads facebook updates....HA.... But true?













Beverly Hillbillys.....




That is plenty maybe I'll look for more when I have more time...

Food truck Update

So there is something I need to explain for people who have read stuff on here and facebook..... I am pro food trucks and think they are a great Idea... I'm not one of those people who only see my side all the time... I can see how someone from a certain point wouldn't agree with something or even how they might be trying to do something a certain way.... Well with some thing not all and one can't really know a different perspective unless they have been in that spot....



lloyds Kickstarter Page currently they have like 17 hours to go.... Yes I should have written about this last night....Yes I donated some money but won't say how much... How much you give determines how much you get.... You only get charged the money you give if they make the goal.... They are trying to get a 2nd truck....

So this got a lot of bad press I guess some people got really upset about this.... There was an article in the artvoice about it....



Now on Facebook a few people posted about this and thanks cause that reminded me I wanted to help them out and give some money..... Now the point was brought up about out rage like this is why Buffalo will never be anything.... I'm sorry I don't remember the exact debate. But my point was kinda that I get why people think that a Business shouldn't ask for money.... If you that is taco truck or a theatre company your prices and what you spend need to be that you make enough money on your own..... The other point I was making was that in this town.... The government is so corrupt and they do so little and the people do most things really.... So that makes everything from Panos to saving the trico Building political..... That drives people to be so over involved.... Also Buffalo has a history of doing stupid things like putting a high way in the middle of the park....

Hope these guys get there money and get a 2nd truck.....

Smash

So I tried to watch like 5 minutes of the voice and I'm sorry I can't I like Christina to much with her huge rack and you can sometimes see what looked like not her nipples but however you spell the thing that pasties cover..... It is to much for me to take... Plus it is on when Wrestling is on... But after that is a great show I think called SMASH.... It is kinda like Glee in a way that it is a singing show.... Or maybe kinda like Fame was.... But it isn't a school it is adults going through a musical so yes there is drama and sex as well not that they can show any thing really on NBC nudity wise.... So I DVR it and I think it is great..... So I figured I would find a few youtube videos to post.... Now what I don't know is how they do season 2.... Will it be the same actors and the story continues about the musical going on and maybe a new cast or do they do a different musical I have no idea.... Story wise the musical isn't even all written..... So here are a few videos I assume......





a scene from a club



Great Voice Yes there are some odd pop up things on the video.... She currently plays the back up.......


This is Monroe well the person playing her.....


Now I like many different bands and styles..... But one thing I like about the musical style... Or at least one reason why I think I like it... Is that when it is good when a note is held.... the sound of the word or letter is kept... How many songs does someone say a a word and hold it and you have no idea what it is they just sang.......

I admit This is the first time hearing this.... Of course unless you are a punk band covering this is such a touch song... No one can do it as good as Judy Garland........



Ok that is plenty..... The vocals are great but they are so better with the visuals so you know whom is singing.....

Bandits Won...Wow!

So on Saturday I found out that the Bandits Won the night before in Toronto I was shocked....... Then on Saturday night at the home game vs. The Swarm the won again..... Good game and a great time.... I loved and wished I could well ok maybe I still could have bought the new jersey I just went with the shirt.... But on second look the shirt doesn't make sense why does it say Buffalo? Well maybe to do the Irish Colors? Also wish they had something like a hoodie with a bigger symbol.... But maybe they had plans for both based on the weather?



The Bandettes.......



Then I also made an album cause someone I know jumped up and put his hand over the glass and the players jumped up a slapped his hand kinda like a high five.......



So a Few pix from the game and win.........

2012 St. Patrick's Day Parade

So I wish I had My Pictures on Webshots but haven't had the time cause there you can view a slide show ..... Maybe revisiting the youtube slide show is an idea.... About 200 photos on the book of face....



Now on my Way home I tried to capture the culture and I don't know if that is possible really.... Didn't go into any bars with the Walking dead and animation domination line up and having to work the next day.... Wish I would have gone to see Henry Rollins Spoken word...... But oh well.....



Hoping that the pictures I post show the spirit of the parade if that is possible.....?

St. Pats 2012



Interesting article About the Parade

Bandits won but only a few pictures after the parade do to Battery life and time of down loading need to wait till after the parade.... They had this great jerseys that I would love kinda wish I didn't buy the all star one now and got this one but I didn't know...

Sure many people went out last night or went to the other parade......

I'm sure many will go out after the parade as well...... Wish I was going to see Henry Rollins spoken Word .... That is all ways a great time...Oops....

Walking dead tonight.....

Here is the article... In box form....

Updated: March 18, 2012, 9:37 AM

Buffalo's St. Patrick's Day Parade is serious business for Thomas Patrick Young. As a member of the United Irish American Association, Young has helped plan the milelong march for 22 years.

Today marks the 71st marching of the parade, which sports six divisions and 3,000 marchers. It is expected to draw from 100,000 to 150,000 spectators along Delaware Avenue from Niagara Square to North Street.

Young will be in charge of the 40 vendors who sell food and novelty items. You'll find him on a golf cart patrolling the route -- helping with crowd control and basking in Irish pride.

People Talk: You must have your hands full with vendors.

Thomas Patrick Young: Buffalo is not a mecca for vendors. While most of the food served curbside and at different corners is local, the novelty vendors are from other cities -- Cleveland, Pittsburgh, Binghamton -- throughout the Northeast. They start approaching me in January.

PT: What won't you allow them to sell?

TPY: Silly String, because of the cost of the dresses the dancers are wearing. They're $800 to $900 a piece. And we don't want Silly String on our black long coats and top hats.

PT: How many dancing groups do you have?

TPY: At least six. We have units spread out so it's not band after band, and not dancing group after dancing group.

PT: What about union after union?

TPY: We dedicate our third division to the unions. This year that division has 29 entries. It could be a record-setting year for floats this year. We have 20.

PT: Do marchers still throw out candy?

TPY: There's nothing to be thrown from any vehicle. We don't allow that. It's too dangerous. People still do it, but we try to stop it as fast as we can -- just like drinking [alcohol] by marchers in the parade. We tell them that we'll buy them a drink after the parade. We're looking for a parade that moves swiftly and smoothly. We don't like gaps. People may think the parade is over.

PT: What kind of floats do you frown upon?

TPY: Anything that is not a tribute to St. Patrick. Sunday starts with a Mass at St. Joseph's Cathedral that is dedicated to this year's grand marshal, Patrick Plunkett, and to my Aunt Catherine.

PT: How many judges are there?

TPY: Six. We have judges for floats and judges for groups. We actually hire a local judging company. We also have a trophy day for the winners, which is usually two weeks after the parade at the Irish Center.

PT: What float turns your head?

TPY: The Steelworkers. For years they had an 18-foot I-beam, and we were never sure whether it would make it under some of the wires on Delaware Avenue. It's much lower now -- probably 7 or 8 feet -- so there is no fear of ripping the street lights out.

PT: Tell me a parade fact.

TPY: What a lot of people don't realize is that we -- the [United] Irish American Association -- pay the bands to come in and play.

PT: How about a historical fact?

TPY: They didn't have a parade in 1941 because of the war.

PT: What role does weather play?

TPY: When the weather's bad, the parade is small. Less marching bands show up because of all their stuff. If you're coming out with your $2,000 trumpet, you don't want to have that out in the rain. We mark them down as no-shows.

PT: Does a no-show one year affect the group's placement the next year?

TPY: It depends on the nature of their group. If they're Irish dancers and have their little short outfits on and it's 6 below zero, we understand.

PT: Tell me about the grand marshal selection process.

TPY: A lot of it involves how long you've been with the parade committee. We also look at what you've done as far as donations. We are very selective about this because this person is going to wear the face of the parade this year.

PT: You wore the face of the parade in 2010, right?

TPY: I made it a once-in-a-lifetime day, my day in the sun. I had family in from all over the world. It was my dream.

PT: Do you have Irish setters?

TPY: I have a black Lab who is fully set up with a green collar and scarf for St. Patrick's Day. His name is Mister Murphy.

PT: Tell me about the parade cleanup brigade.

TPY: First, everybody who comes with horses is always equipped to clean up after them -- mandatory. You must have your own scoop. General clean up is usually done by volunteer eighth-grade groups. We have 20 Port-a-Johns.

PT: What do you do for fun?

TPY: I'm an avid golfer and bowler. As a young man, I had my heart set on being a pro bowler. I still bowl on a league every Monday night. I dedicate a lot of my time to work. My job is in the commercial collection industry in this volatile economy. We've actually replaced the steel industry with the collection industry in Buffalo. There are thousands and thousands of employees.
