Uncle Larry in a brand new green Homeskoolin’ t….damn this thing is soooo comfy…it’s like wearing a cloud.

A brief dissertation on the power of blowing up the input of an old Fender amp with the right stuff.

Totally unrelated, one of my biggest pet peeves in this world is this… when you see a thumbnail for a youtube video that has some kind of amazing photo….but then when you actually watch that video there is not a single thing in the video that even shows the photo they used in the thumbnail.

I fucking HATE that false advertising bullshit….there should be laws against this.

Notes
A rare gear review from Larry….filled to the brim with brutal honesty, laughter and tears.

Special thank you to dearest James Hatem and the fine people at Roland for letting me try this cool new pedal…the RE-202.

Please note, this device has far more to offer than i glanced upon in this precursory perfunctory analysis, including a “warp” freak out mode that happens when you hold down the pedal, but i wasn’t emotionally ready to delve into all that in this video.

totally unrelated, these rug cleaning vids have at least temporarily taken the place of old NFL films in Larry's current youtube watch list

Homeskoolin’ Bonus 4th of July Feedback

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


Notes
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
