Certainly you've heard of The Byrds? They did lots of Dylan songs.
The Byrds - Mr. Tambourine Man (Audio) - YouTube

Yup, that's the sole Byrds song I have. Don't get me wrong, I have a lot of 60s era singles that I love - Jefferson Airplane, Buffalo Springfield. Cowsills, Barry McGuire, etc. But they're all singles, no interest in their albums. As well, much of the stuff guys share around here, or that my wife knows, I never heard of. But I've got a bunch of stuff she's never heard of either. It's all a matter of what world you grew up in.

The first album I ever bought at a record store was Electric Ladyland. Hard to find any of Jimi's music on line.

That one is interesting because of its artistic qualities.

Subjective, again. I find it to be a fairly mediocre example of typical mid-century marketing graphic design.

Well whaddya know, I'm in the home stretch approaching 30k. :eek:

Yes. I listened to mostly rock of the era (Jimi Hendrix, Cream, Traffic, etc) but a guy I met in high school taught me about jazz. So much of it to love and I still want to thank him for that.

Parallel! Grew up to/came of age with rock, especially British, but childhood/schooldays friend's old man was a big-time jazz fan -- all kinds/eras. Had a very comprehensive record collection. Hence the early Brubeck purchase on my part. And you are right -- there is so much of it to love. I have a particular love for BeBop and derivatives (Parker; Gordon; Pepper etc.) but can appreciate almost anything as long as there's a core melody/theme somewhere in the composition. The 'experimental' stuff not so much.

Yup, the Trane can play this or Sentimental Mood any day for me.

Definitely.

BTW...Did you know that the show was made for adults?

Yes. Do you recall the episode "Coward??" I use the line "nice and slow" whenever people on my rides are pushing the pace.

That's topography.

My question, if itís disrupting speed can be disrupting distance?

Not a huge deal, but It was all I could think about while I was pedaling this morning.

GPS can be subject to all sorts of disruptions. Get a sensor if you want accurate.

Gauntlet thrown.



Just got done with the trial. 150 billable hours in two weeks is kicking my ass. At least now I can twist off for a bit.

When is shedding season for Ms Benson? Do you have to hire someone to help keep up with it?

Agree. From 3' you can't tell ours is plastic. Except for the lack of pine/fir sent.

Sheepdogs don't shed.

She has regular sessions with a professional groomer.

Meanwhile, I don't understand why my GSD and Beagle-boy aren't bald, considering how much dog hair collects in the corners of my house.

Today was our annual Holiday Lunch. We held it onsite, rather than going out as we did pre-COVID. We got Indian food. And somebody brought 3 different cakes. I swear, they're trying to kill me.

Cool. You are definitely welcome to your opinion. :thumb:
