Homeskoolin’ “Life Is Surreal Pt 2”

00:00 - Video shoot and thank you

Just when you think life can’t get any weirder…Dave Stewart decides that Uncle Larry’s new old bachelor pad is the ONLY place suitable to film Joss Stone’s new music video….despite the fact that the director, Brian Tortoro (featured in this video) tried to talk some sense into him and suggested several other locations.

Thank you for supporting the channel and thank you guys for buying my record.

Homeskoolin’ Bonus 4th of July Feedback

00:00 - Beautiful slow jam
05:53 - Duesenberg Blackbird
06:36 - Echoplex
07:07 - Gretsch 6161 Amp

Well guys….I have always said, music is the great healer….especially tape echo imploding through some red hot 7591s…

I am layin’ low today friends. Drove myself to the ER at 2:30am last night after waking up in EXCRUCIATING kidney stone level pain in my right side…

My right side has been hurting right below the rib cage for about the past week, but last night it went into full on "attack mode" and i thought it was a kidney stone or the old appendix was about to burst.

Anyhoo, they put me on a morphine IV and that certainly helped. It turns out whatever is going on with me has been perplexing to the two different docs i have been to. Two different abdmonial CTI scans show absolutely nothing abnormal…blood work is fine, liver is fine….gallbladder looks normal, no kidney stones, no appendicitis or pancreatitis….so what IS IT?

No one knows….ulcer is the most reasonable conclusion at this point…which kinda fits "the lifestyle" in the often stressful world of the Uncle Larry. Do NOT worry friends, Larry is just gonna take it easy, play some guitar, watch some movies and chill the fuck out. Hope you all have a great holiday…and please do NOT blow your fingers off tomorrow lads ferchrissakes
