You can make PayPal donations to this address:
You can make Venmo donations to this address:

AND...you can purchase a myriad of Homeskoolin' related merchandise..including several different T-shirts and some beautifully constructed coffee mugs for those afflicted with thin lips...

AND....believe it or not....i have a new website people....an actual proper website.

You can see all kinds of weird old photos there, you can also purchase a download of the live concert i did last December if you like.

There are still a few more of the hand signed limited edition Uncle Larry prints that Ziggy O'Leary did left....if you wanna check one out go here:

A lot of these very same new viewers don't seem to know that Uncle Larry made a couple records that they could potentially listen to...
one is an instrumental solo record called "Plexi Soul" that is available here:

another is an instrumental collaboration with his dear friend Dean Deleo (originally from the Stone Temple Pilots organization) that is available here:

Homeskoolin' Bonus, "Mondo Bandage"

00:00 - Acoustic playing into / Surgery announcement
03:25 - Good news - Plexi Soul vinyl album
04:30 - Guthrie Trapp record

Hello friends...don't be frightened. Your old buddy is fine. I just went in for some surgery yesterday to remove an area of basal cell carcinoma (inflitrative type) thats been there for years actually.

Supposedly the operation was a success...the people at Vanderbilt were soooooo cool and soooo sweet.
I highly recommend plastic surgeon Dr. Galen Perdikis....he's a real bad ass and it's nice to know there is a real live professional around when it's time to get some big holes cut in your head.

The good news is my facial recognition on my phone still works.

Also, the whole time this is going on, I have been thinking how surprised the world would be if it was skin cancer that took me out....and not some liver or kidney issue haha

Special thanks to my dear old friend Nicky G....ain't a better man in this world in my book.

A little advice to you young cats out there...putting the necessary time in to develop some REAL friendships with a few VERY carefully selected people in this lifetime is a lot more important than nailing the solo to "Kid Charlemagne" or getting a pedal with a convincing Dumble tone.

That shit ain't gonna pick you up on a work day at 9am to take you to the hospital when you need it.

If you ever need a roofer that is NOT a criminal trying to completely rip you off, then call this guy... Boone Whitaker at Whitaker Roofing in Murfreesboro TN 615-424-1622.... Tell him you are a Homeskooler…after that, everything is gonna be smoother than Telly Savales’s head...he's a good guy and they do excellent work.

Anyway, here’s a 17 minute ramble from a guy who hasn’t been around many people any older than 9 years old in several days.

If anyone out there knows what issue of guitar player mag i got “writ up” in recently please tell me, cuz i can’t find the fucking thing....like who is on the cover?

totally unrelated, dig this crazy video....my son watched this and all he said afterwards was "knuckleheads..." kinda under his breath......hahaaaaa, wonder where he got that?

I will lay out the Plexi Soul “down under” shipping situation soon….special thanks to Jedd’s dad.

Thanks for watching the show and sorry for the gratuitous “over posting” and shameless flogging of all things Homeskoolin’….no sessions for a while…a man gets “bored” sometimes….so then that man sells a few of his tools of war…so that he can then purchase some other tools of war.

1) absolutely primo 1946 gibson j-45 neck only….AMAZING condition and original finish ….1500 firm…this could be a life changer for the right person/repairman out there

2) 1964 fender vibroverb 1x15 combo amp. As you know this model is BY FAR the most coveted of the entire blackface line by collectors…basically just a pro reverb with a 15” speaker, for twice the money. 4500 firm and i WILL NOT SHIP…you gotta come to larry’s house to get this if you want it. 7/10 cosmetic condition…has definitely been played and gigged. All original trannies and speaker…serviced by Ebo…sounds absolutely lovely

3) 1959 watkins westminster…small and EXTREMELY stylish little british tube combo amp….sounds good but could sound GREAT with a bit of tweaking and TLC….Sold as is for 1300 firm and I WILL NOT SHIP. Nice sounding tremolo circuit
