Remember folks, the boat has sunk.
President Obama is our raft.
Don't complain about the lack of amenities.
Start paddling.

Ralph friggin Nadir

Shut up Ralph Nadir, shut up shut up shutupshutup.
The whole Bush era is your fault.
Even 9-11, as far as I'm concerned.
You know nothing about how the world works,
even less than how cars work
You are a complete idiot.
Seriously, get some psychiatric help.
Go hide in a cave.
Go back to Mars.
And SHUT the f*** UP!

Images of the music

Images for the recent music

Play it here.

"Guitar Quintet"

Martin 00018 I've had since 1966,
Japanese 12 string I got in LA in 1965
Gigantic acoustic bass guitar I built in '08 of thereabouts
A mandora I made a couple years ago six strings and tuned like a guitar
A cheap plywood guitar, the one I use the most because I don't mind leaving it laying around where I can grab it whenever I want. This is the one I got the material for the guitar quintet.

Play it here

"String Quintet"

String quintet;
I made all of these things.
The 'cello the small viola and one of the violins are made out of plywood and are of an experimental rectangular design.
The big viola and the other violin are of conventional design and made of better woods.
Had a quartet performed at Soundbridge with these instruments back in '02 or '03 or sometime or other

Hemo Hero

Off to the blood bank today.
Why don't you all join me?
We can all give a pint then head to the Whistlestop and I'll buy us all a pint.
Then we can stand up, get dizzy, and fall down.
It'll be just like the 60's again.

Worked into this version for string quartet.

2 violas
1 cello

Been too busy with my music to play with words.

More bike stuff

Short ride this morn.
Coasted down to Seward park, did a lap around the park, rode up and over the center of the isthmus and back home.
A measly 10 miles.
But, I rode all the way up Waters to Redwing.
Thought I was gonna die.
But I didn't


10.81 miles
11.1 average speed
32.0 maximum speed
58.01 minutes
2371.4 odometer

Thanks to Googgle, I find I do know what it means.
It means Oh the times - Oh the customs.
Or perhaps Oh the times - Oh the manners.

By the way, I deliberately misspelled The G-word as a sign of disrespect.

Did the lower half of Lake Washington, felt awful chased my breath all the way, only now did I catch it.
Renton, otherwise known as "Alzheimer's Junction" has changed it's speed limit on it's puny little
river trail from 15 mph to 10 mph and posted a $101 fine. I'm tempted to go ahead and blast through just to help them out of their financial difficulties, but it is probably futile.
Renton continues to rot away,motorcycle shop's gone, car dealers leaving, even dear old Saint Vincent is abandoning this sinking tugboat of a town.
Ah, well, it's inevitable, the average age there is "deceased".
Look for the ramps for some cheap real estate deals.

Anyway, you are not interested in centuries past.

You're not interested in the following either


24.82 miles
10.7 average speed
30.7 maximum speed
2360.6 on the odometer
2:18:38 road time.

BTW, I found the password for FFTL, so now I've got 2 blog sites.
The pisser is, it was the same as my e-mail password but that is gone forever because of my stupid attempts to try to sign in there.

O tempores!, O mores! (I have no idea what that means)
