SXSW 2019!!!

Recommended Posts

Hoping I have more time to contribute, but unlike last year I’m slammed with work.

Tom is an interesting fellow and a Harvard Rhodes Scholar so he can discuss many topics intelligently. Had some good conversation and very accessible.

For all you guitar junkies.

Love it! I wish I could give you multiple rep for the same post, brother.

Heck yeah, he’s unique! Most of the stuff in that lesson is so far over my head it hurts to think about.

And in other news, I picked up two new clients this weekend who shall remain nameless. 

Let’s just say one was a featured speaker at the ACLU venue over the weekend and has a peach of an ex-whatever. 

The other has offered to mentor my eldest daughter if she pursues a field in entertainment

I used to do that with Hendrix. Watch a video over and over. Sometimes one little piece over and over like 10, 15 times. Watching his fingers. Or trying to get the exact notes to one little lick in your head. Then try to play it half speed, quarter speed, even slower, til you could start to play it. And then repetition til you learned it. You'd have to watch that video like that.

Back to work tomorrow. Twelve days straight before that and probably another Tuesday before I see an off day, but at least that’s only six on. 

Music starting up. Took my girls downtown last night to see the sights.

Ok, just heard this guy on my favorite station here. I don’t usually post stuff like this, but I couldn’t resist. Hilarious, but also a good arrangement.

 

This one is slightly more tame.

Last day. Last night I saw these ladies with my 17 year daughter. Kinda big deal for her considering the crowd there (she was definitely the youngest) and it was at the home of someone who flew them in, paid for their car service and put them up at what my daughter and I could only describe as a mini castle. Not small by any standard except measured against some the European castles I’ve seen. 

The room they played in was quite small and sound was not great. So, while weams was ready to assist me with the posting of my personal video, I felt it was better to post from YouTube to give an idea of what they sound like. Lot of energy and edgy, which of course, my daughter loves.

Bones UK

Rosie-lead vocalist 

Carmen -lead guitar

Aaron-drums

They were gracious with my daughter and really made an effort to include her.

Shame, I've watched footage of some of their live shows and they look good.  

Edit- I just checked, they are a regular at the event.  This will be at least the third time they have been.

Yeah, I saw a lot more last year. But this year I’m with a different company and they had much more business. Many more attendees this year as well.

    • Can you give us a reference about where the evidence is for how "very few left handed pitchers threw 91 back in the late 70s"?     Maybe my statistical search is not looking in the same place.     Yeah, the junk baller who won our last World Series game probably ever.    Just watch the video and honestly tell me you think this guy couldn't pitch today.     
    • So few left handed pitchers threw 91 back in the late 70's that I just find it unlikely from a statistical standpoint.  I'm not old enough to remember late 70's McGregor.  The guy I remember in the 80's was more of a junkballer.
    • At the same time, you cited 103 mph as the reason older generation hitters would not do well today.  Exaggeration goes both ways in making a point about which I too was trying to communicate...i.e.  I do believe that many 1980s era players could certainly play well and thrive in today's game.     And that some of the pitching skill sets today might even be more valuable in today's game than they were back then.   Even if the velocity is not the same.         I certainly accept that the game is played differently today, different after the steroid era, and that the athletes playing it perform those aspects of the game differently than their predecessors.   Still haven't found the speed gun ratings on Scott in high school, but I suspect they were pretty good....I might just ask him...   Scott McGregor, El Segundo (Calif.), 1972 Although a teammate of Hall of Famer George Brett (as a sophomore and junior), it was McGregor who garnered more headlines during his three-year career under El Segundo legendary coach John Stevenson. McGregor was a three-time All-CIF selection and was twice named Player of the Year. He was also a Rawlings All-American as a senior. He set section records (which still stand) for career wins (51), career shutouts (20), shutouts in a season (9), and consecutive no-hitters (2). He also set the section record for career strikeouts (which has since been broken) with 496. He was the No. 14 overall pick in 1972 draft by the Yankees, but he was eventually traded to Baltimore. 
    • He's the top, He's the Colosseum! He's the top, A cornerstone of the Te-am! -- Pole Courter, from the musical "Anything Counts"  
    • You asked about velocity right? I love how you keep mentioning inner circle HoF players.  No word on how Frank Torre would do.  By concentrating on the top .1% you are missing out on an important issue I tried to relay to you.  Your average hitter is a lot more dangerous.   
    • And I think that’s fair. I’m just saying that I think it’s quite possible he would get that bump in today’s game given the emphasis on K’s from a pitching standpoint and hitter’s aggression and willingness to strike out.  It’s definitely a different game though. 
    • Yeah, I am sure Frank Robinson and Hank Aaron would have been just terrified by Kevin Gausman and Tommy Hunter.....lol.
