it’s great that Garry Shandling is still alive

You know I wasn’t a huge fan of Shandling ( I did like his few-episode bit on X Files) but it thought it worth mentioning the episode of comedians in cars getting coffee that must’ve only been d0ne a couple of months ago, <a href=”http://comediansincarsgettingcoffee.com/garry-shandling-its-great-that-garry-shandling-is-still-alive”>http://comediansincarsgettingcoffee.com/garry-shandling-its-great-that-garry-shandling-is-still-alive</a> because it’s really speaking from the other side.

Unfortunately the link aggregator site delicious.com might be starting to tank. I have used it for several years as a convenient way to collect/ bookmark interesting things that pop up on the net and then post the feed here on the side bar. All was well until a month ago when they said they needed to insert an ad into the feed to help pay the upkeep. This is the downside of third party bits on the website. I have put it further down the sidebar because I am not interested in a three week diet.

 

<a href=”http://www.openculture.com/2015/10/the-neuroscience-of-bass-new-study-explains-why-bass-instruments-are-fundamental-to-music.html”>Here</a> is an interesting article on how bass frequencies are an important part of music. I was reminded of this last week at Pakofest. The Chinese contingent came past with a guy fast-hammering a traditional sort of bass drum. Even 30 to 40 feet away I could still feel it resonating in my chest and triggering adrenaline.

While I fiddle-fuddle around with six string electric guitars, I am really not good at playing it. I <3 bass guitar.
