Rumor is Wednesday the 14th but check with Larry B.
- We ended the jam 10 minutes early which got me
home by 12:00, just in time for the Knick replay
of game 1 of the Miami Heat playoffs series. It
will be fun watching the game as I write this
posting. Its currently tied approaching the end
of the first quarter but the Knicks look okay so
- The only guest in the room was Johnny's freaky
Canadian compadre, Barbara Campbell, from
Mitsubishi. Johnny and Barbara left by the end of
the first set to catch
the second half of the Knick game in real time.
They returned after the game just in time for the
second set. It was pretty funny because after the
Passenger, to start the second set, I said
good-bye to Barbara because I heard her mumble
that she was going to hang out for just one more
song. Little did she know that we would not stop
until the end of Sugar Magnolia. She didn't get
the opportunity to scadattle out of the room
until she interrupted the Sugar Mag prior to the
Sunshine Daydream by saying good-bye.
- There was no Rich Brotman once again, is there
any confirmation that he is alive?
to significant traffic, forty minutes at the
Holland Tunnel, I walked in on the Aiko-Aiko
already under progress with Dennis at the helm.
- The Jack Straw was a bit sluggish
- The Direwolf was properly played but was also
sluggish. Menaker described it as thrashing
- Mexicali also had its problems establishing a
groove, but I though it was an improvement over
the previous songs.
- Larry B. transitioned well into the Mama Tries
and we were pretty solid.
- The West LA was the first song we had with a sly
slinky groove. I had a wacky slide thing going in
concert with the phaser I was using. I actually
listened to it on the way home, which I never do,
because I was scared about hearing a Knick score
on the radio. The West LA was good. I had very
low left channel on the tape, I wonder if it was
the D5 or on everyone's tape.
- All Over Now was fair
- The Devil was weak.
- We were all tuned and raring to go with the
Passenger but the Pizza Bill came and we had to
honor them. Instead we reserved, and shuffled,
the passenger into the second set.
- Knicks up by two with in the second but should be
doing better with Hardaway and Alonzo on the
bench with 3 fouls a piece.
paying the Bill, dinner was okay.
- The Memphis Trio was a modest order in Deadstein
terms. We had one pie and two stombolis. That's
it. Assorted Dr. Peppers and Snapples.
- For dessert Larry M. and Scott went to the new,
up -and-coming Krispy Kreme Doughnuts, on 23rd
Street. Everyone loved these things but me. We
got a wide assortment of an undisclosed quantity
of doughnuts. The glazed
came right off of the dripping conveyor mechanism
and were hot. They were like doughnuts I have
never had before and I'm not sure I liked them.
To me, these hot ones were like biting into a
warm, sugar coated glop of Crisco shortening. The
powdered dunking type of doughnut was the best I
had. I thought the jelly was a bite too greasy. I
hear there we great things about the blueberry
varieties we had. The chocolate covered creams,
sprinkled ones and chocolate glazed capped off
the feast fit for a Simpson. I'm sure we will be
hearing more a bout Krispy Kreme in the future.
- We had some phone stuff going on during half
time. To start, Kevin's burping conversation with
Allison was classic. What else can he say? Kevin
also took a message from Debbie M. and spilled
the beans on Larry M's escapades at a doughnut
store. Enough to make a loving wife jealous. In
addition, it took Kevin a good four minutes to
tell Larry that Debbie called after he got back
from the bakery of ill-repute.
- Knicks down by 2 half way through the third and
it's ugly basketball on both sides of the court.
My prediction is that they will win.
- For me te Passenger was the highlight of the
night. I felt good, the song was powerful,
consistent and we all clicked.
- This is probably the first Estimated we played
since I have been using Kevin's phaser and as
soon as I played the first chord, it sounded
great. Probably the best implementation of
Kevin's phaser. The Passenger is also correct
with this effect.
- The transition into the Fingers was quite
beautiful until we actually attempted to start
the song. Overall the Crazy Fingers was pretty
- The Days Between was tough to see. We all had to
read it and it was small. With the E flats and B
flats and what seemed like many verses, made for
- The Sugar Mag rocked. Kevin and Larry wanted to
blow off the Sunshine Daydream, the rest of us
didn't so we played it but we should not have.
- Knicks up by 5 with 2:35 left in the third and on
- The Room felt perfect and weather was
not an issue. The weather outside is very cold
and blustery for a May 7th.
- Alan Houston on Fire in the second half and Knick
up by 11 with 10:00 left in the fourth. Knicks
win in dominating fashion.
