Homeskoolin’ Holiday Bonus “I’ve Just Seen A Face”

Chapters
00:00 - Happy Birthday wishes thanks!


Notes
Larry wanted to emote a VERY SINCERE thank you to all that have sent birthday wishes to him on this day…his 55th birthday…the memo that came in from corporate this morning said that he truly appreciates it.

He also wanted to give you a little Rorschach test and show you the annual Christmas train that is always a giant hit with the young lads….although the cars and tracks are fairly recent, the engine and transformer of the Christmas train is supposedly from 1958…and so is that sweet old 350 with the intoxicating sunburst shading...and the narrow spaced PAF's... and the old brown Lifton case that is lined with the second best pink on earth....

00:00 - Producing a band interview


Notes
Uncle Larry is In Bloomington Indiana making a record with an amazing rock band called CLIFFS….

tonite we are going to do a live YouTube stream at 6pm eastern where you can check out the session.

Apparently there is a team of people here qualified to pull off this live video stream.
Lord knows I am waaaay to technologically challenged to pull this off myself, so let us pray it all goes as planned.

I am thrilled to be a part of this project….these guys are REALLY fucking talented musicians and great people.
It’s an absolute joy to work with a band that is so unbelievably well rehearsed and together.


Good stuff people…

Check it out later if you can

Chapters

Notes
If you live in Nashville and you don’t already know about Brentwood Auto Wash…you need to get hip.

My 65 impala was just FILTHY, covered in sticky tree sap…so I went for it, even though I knew the leaky convertible top had zero chance against the power of the automatic car wash.

oh...and Larry told me to tell you that this guy frightens him...for real...

mommy, make the man stop...

(whatever it takes, you absolutely MUST endure all the way to the end...)
