    Forum update

    FYI, I was unable to log in yesterday because I was told via error message that I had to accept cookies even though my Chrome settings indicated that I was allowing cookies. For what it's worth, that seems to have cleared up overnight.

    Where The Hell Would Chopin Be?

    You were certainly one of the two or three, ski. That's one chap I've long wanted but alas, will never own. I hope the scan went uneventfully. I can see that you didn't over-do it but it still reads right as rain. :cool:

    Where The Hell Would Chopin Be?

    That one was only published in Longshot Pomes for Broke Players and in Beatitude No. 16 (1960). I'd bet that no more than two or three members here have a copy of either (or perhaps both). I doubt that Longshot Pomes could be scanned without risking damage to the binding. But, maybe someone...

    What are you listening to? The world really needs to know. Volume 8

    I can only assume that you don't mean when Fripp comes in. :eek:

    If We Take

    Yeah, Krumhansl uses the word "red," so I went that way. Ski, that appears to be an uncalled for signed (green thread?), especially if signed in red (felt tip?) and not numbered. If the sig is in red felt tip, that likely puts it in the '69-'74 time frame, which is nice.

    If We Take

    I guess my short answer to your question is "No, I don't." Incapable of leaving it at that, I would note that there were only 100 signed and numbered copies (plus one file copy) per Krumhansl. I have one of the 350 (not 300, as clarified in Krumhansl) copies that was issued without a signature...

    What are you drinking?

    Why do I get the sense that this was just before PhillyDave started drinking?

    MY BOOK

    Good to see that Jordan was finally able to push the rock away and stop by for a quick beer. Or maybe I've just not seen his posts. Either way, we're still here manning the humping guns or something.

    Seen any good movies lately?

    The premise of Strangers on a Train was used in Throw Momma From the Train.

    Betting on the Muse: Legitimacy

    I believe that the general consensus is that this one more or less made it through OK.

    Guitars, basses and other noisemakers

    I know the feeling. After all these years, my favorite bass is the one I got used for $180 back in the late '90s. It's a fretless Crafted in Japan Fender Jazz and it just feels like a custom-tailored suit. Unfortunately, my favorite strings for it have been discontinued: Fender Nylon Filament...

    What are you listening to? The world really needs to know. Volume 8

    I probably posted this here years ago, but for those who might actually care and perhaps missed that, Pino Palladino is an absolute Mutha Fucka. The lick he plays from 1:02-1:04 is so simple that I can't possibly figure it out:

    Database updated

    It looks like Broadsides, Wormwood, NYQ and Chronological Magazine Appearances are the ones that aren't functioning. The rest appear to be.

    Database updated

    I thought that I'd run some checks and got over to the Wormwood site here (database/lists/Wormwood Review Appearances). The first poem listed there is Thank God for Alleys. If I click the link, I am brought to the page that lists books, magazines, manuscripts, etc. All of those headers are...

    Ethereum, Bitcoin and Quatloos (or: How will Ethereum revolutionize the music industry?)

    I'd like to think that I'm not an idiot, but how is all this crap nothing more than a pyramid scheme without a pyramid?

    Ole 4: O, We Are The Outcasts, O We Burn In Wondrous Flame!

    I have the following laid-in flyer in Ole 4. I'm not certain that it was originally intended for #4, but I thought I'd put the pages up here as there is Buk content. Ole #4 has a great cover:

    Guitars, basses and other noisemakers

    It almost looked sparkly root beer brown, but that lighting is pretty dim. It's possible it's Shoreline Gold or even Burgundy Mist Metallic (or, as you said, primer): Thanks to http://www.guitarhq.com/fenderc.html for this 1960 Fender color chart.

    Guitars, basses and other noisemakers

    A few notes on the Fender viddy for those who might be wondering: 0:51: this looks to be the initial body formation of what might have ended up as a slab Precision bass. These were originally made for the UK market in the '50s, but I don't know if they were still in production in '59. In about...

    What are you listening to? The world really needs to know. Volume 8

    Dylan's More Blood, More Tracks dropped today. Circumstances necessitated the purchase of the 1-CD format ($12) over the deluxe 6-CD format ($120), but that's fine with me, as I'm mainly a '62-'66 Dylan nut. Take 2 of You're a Big Girl Now is stunning.

    Black Sparrow Press

    I have a few by Tom Clark and Michael Lally that I consider to be good stuff, but certainly Buk and Fante were the big guns.

    "I’ve always felt readers will either love the book, or absolutely hate it. Might as well start everyone deciding on page one, right?" Excellent.

    Authentic Signature

    Anyone could bring a bookplate to a reading to have it signed. But I have never seen one, for the record. I think it's premature to assume it was done by a forger. The more I look at it, the more it looks like '73-'75 to me (per Ski's note and my copies of SoNN, Burning and Love is a Dog). This...

    Authentic Signature

    That's a tough one. On first glance it looks wrong, but there are enough elements to suggest that it's genuine. One of those "I probably wouldn't buy it" types.

    Manuscripts

    It's funny that A Member of the Tribe may well be about Norse, just as Dylan's Positively 4th Street may well be about critics. No matter how obvious it is or isn't, the message is what makes it. That said, I'm going to gingerly open my Penguin Modern Poets #13 to see what Norse has going on...
