Uncle Larry gets his chunk on after a fun day of sessioneering with some sweet old friends.

This one goes out to our boy Deercreek Audio, also known as "The Poolside Stalker".
Deercreek is a long time Homeskooler who likes to sit in his studio late at night in his tight bike shorts and put drums on my little jams using his trusty Alesis HR-16 drum machine....and he also loves to substitute all of my original bass notes with his Yamaha DX-7 set on the "Night Court Bass" (patch number 78).

Deercreek and Sting Locker (V.P. of Homeskoolin' Industries) have a bit of what some might call a "strained relationship".....kind of a love hate thing you might say.
