Well now, Last week was interesting wasn't it? Jacko moonwalked out of the building and because of that we heard just about every hit he had over the weekend on the radio. The only record I had was Thriller. But was reminded how much good music he made. Personally my favorite stuff was with The Jacksons, but I suppose that would be because I love Motown bass. I remember watching Mtv (when there were videos) hoping they would play the thriller video. I was already knee deep in shlock like "The Blob" and "The Wax Museum" but that video was partially responsible for my love of zombies. Seriously...Vincent F'ing Price!
What else... I should be practicing for the Bass Blast. http://cincybassblast.blogspot.com/ I have my set list down...methinks. It'll have a few slower tunes, which I hope go over well. Those are some of my favorite ones. I struggle with set lists. I want them to flow nicely and because I have some pretty mellow stuff don't want to bore people. Usually I'll have a set list together and abandon it halfway through depending on how I think it's being received. We'll see how it goes. This is the first year for The Bass Blast and hopefully it'll be a yearly celebration of all things bass. Jauqo III-X and his band from Chicago: http://www.jauqoiii-x.com/ and Ohio bassist Doug Johns: http://www.dougjohns.com/ are performing.
Here be the flier:
I suppose that is all for today. So on that note I leave you with something that has nothing to do with anything with the above:
