    RIP Dick Dale, the King of Surf Guitar. He was an absolute legend.

    by Puget Ute
    2019-03-18 11:01:17

    Dick Dale (born Richard Mansour) was a highly influential and innovative guitar player who wove the Arabic melodies, scales, and rhythms from his Lebanese father's heritage into the mainstream of rock and roll in the early 60s. His songs were melodic and percussive, and did not follow the traditional 'Western-style' scales and chord patterns. This led to

    He brought the use of reverb and smooth vibrato into the guitar sounds of the day. And he drove Leo Fender to develop the first 100 watt amplifier (Showman), that led to the legendary Blackface series of amps (Fender Deluxe Reverb/Twin Reverb, Princeton, Champ, etc). This is a This amp was famous for its 'chimey' clean sound, and it has been a key component to the sound of perhaps half of the guitar music produced in the last 55+ years.

    He fought cancer off and on for 40+ years, as well as other illnesses. Three years ago at age 78 he said he had to keep touring despite the constant pain, because his medical supplies cost him $3k per month above and beyond the cost of his insurance.

    (Interesting side note for guitar geeks: Dick Dale was a lefty, but played the left-handed guitar strung righty. Jimi Hendrix also did this.)

    This song, Misirlou, is his signature song. It was a reworking of an Arabic song of the same name.

    1) I absolutely love football, especially college football. 2) And it is apparent that the incidence rate of chronic brain injury in football players is far higher than we thought.

    by Puget Ute
    2018-06-26 22:24:24

    #2 is profoundly concerning to me, because of #1. I am extremely conflicted because of it. I can see a day when the sport goes away for the future safety of the players. That will be a bittersweet day to be sure.

    Today (WSU Cougars' starting QB ) Tyler Hilinski's parents stated that he had CTE at the time of his suicide this past spring. A 21 year old kid had the brain damage level of a 65 year old. He can't be an outlier, and the damage may be more of a normal than we ever imagined, at least by the college level.

    Here are a couple of thought-provoking podcasts discussing football, head trauma, CTE, and their link to suicide.

    The first podcast interviews retired NFL player Donté Stallworth and discusses the brain injury problem at the NFL level.

    https://theintercept.com/2018/02/01/the-n fls-violent-ballet-concussion/

    The second podcast is from Malcolm Gladwell, and compares the CTE epidemic to the black lung disease epidemic a century ago.

    http://revisionisthistory.com/episodes/22 -burden-of-proof

    Listen with an open mind, and enjoy the thought-provoking discussions.

    icymi, Robert Plant's favorite young band tore it up at Coachella and is bringing back good, classic 70s-style rock and roll music.

    by Puget Ute
    2018-04-19 11:49:49

    Greta Van Fleet have a great sound and are immensely talented. They sound derivative of Led Zep of course, with some Triumph, Rush, and The Who thrown in for good measure. But these guys write their own music and are certainly more unique than most of those other bands were at this age and experience (they were playing high school talent shows just a few years ago). The band is 21 yr old twins Josh (vocals) and Jake (guitar) Kiszka, their 19 yr old younger brother Sam (19 yrs old), and 19 yr old Danny Wagner (drums).

    Anyhow, give them a listen. Fans of late 60s/70s/early 80s Gibson/Fender through Marshall amps and falsetto vocals-style rock will love them.

    How much of a factor is reffing in determining PAC-12 bowl and OOC success?

    by Puget Ute
    2017-12-31 11:39:05

    The reffing by PAC crews has been quite a stark contrast to other ref crews. Does the PAC-12 emphasis cause teams to play a more touchy-feely game than other conferences? There were so many plays in various games where a PI, Holding, Targetting, Illegal Pick, etc, would have been called by PAC crews but the refs calling the games just let them slide.

    OSU got away with a PI in the end zone on a 3rd and long play that forced USC to punt. In conference play, Darnold (or any qb, really) would get that call 90% of the time. USC was marching, and likely would have converted the RD on the drive. 7 points gone.

    Wisconsin got away with multiple, PIs and egregious holds on the O line, that surely would have been called. Those were the missed calls that Richt was so upset about at the end of the first half, and they both led to Wisconsin scores. 14 Badger points came from allowing those holds and the PI (where the Wiscy player nearly pulled off the Miami WR's pants).

    We become conditioned to playing a certain style of game over the course of 12 games, then seem to play to a different set of rules in the bowl games. I am all for allowing players to play, and aggressive play will often benefit the Utes. But do the PAC refs force a more nuanced finesse game?

    **note: I recognize that individual PAC refs also crew games for multiple other conferences. It just seems that the PAC (and ACC) wants games to be called a certain way, while the Big 10, Big 12, SEC, etc, seem to be more live-and-let-live in calling games.

    by Puget Ute
    2017-12-22 21:53:45

    Everything is better in every way than life prior to PACmas. So what if we have not yet won a PAC-12 championship, and gone to the Rose Bowl or CFP? Sure I want to do those things, but being close multiple times is also exciting (though also frustrating).

    Why can't zoobs like DR recognize how much more enjoyable everything is now? Life is good. Up until this rebuilding year we were in every CFP poll, had multiple top 25 seasons, beat some giants, and lost close heartbreakers to teams that would have obliterated us in the past (except that 2004 team, they would have rolled all but maybe 5 teams that year and still held their own against them).

    Onward and upward. Go Utes!

    Yes. That free college plan in Germany in the late 1800s/early 1900s helped some serious cream to rise to the top.

    That is why Devin Nunes was running interference. It will be interesting to see whether/when he is indicted for obstruction of justice.

    The next 4 games will be very painful. I love where they are now at 5-2, but after the Oregons and the SoCals I think we will be 6-5 at best.

    Pelosi has passed 10 different spending bills. This is entirely on Mitch McConnell for not allowing bills to come to the floor, unless he is certain Trump will sign them.

    Not only that, but he appears to have been deeply involved with the Alfa Bank money laundering, and is named in the Panama Papers and Paradise Papers. The guy is a dirty as they come.

    It truly is a shame Kamala Harris stopped the investigation into Steve Mnuchin's predatory lending practices and mortgage fraud. He should be rotting away in a prison in California. (or at very least, have had his day in court)

    Enough Senate Republicans would cross over to vote for the house bills to make it happen. one of the bills was passed 98-0 just before Christmas.People like Mitt Romney need to bang hard on McConnell to force him to allow debate and to vote.

    The problem now is an investigation into Russian money crimes led into the election influence, and not the other way around (i.e. NOT political in nature, but criminal). It will all likely be highly correlated, and extending back decades.

    You are correct. Also, isn't this somehow linked to the fact that he is suing his neighbor? I wonder if he blames his hernia on the kerfuffle with his neighbor?

    That is actually a For-Profit hospital that was grandfathered in so many of the patients pay cash out of pocket. However, it will still accept Ontario's public insurance (and in fact it likely only survives based on those payments).

    You cannot give McConnell a pass. There are multiple bills passed by the house that McConnell refuses to being to the floor in the Senate for debate. One of the bills passed the Senate 98-0 three weeks ago.

    Trump is a dolt, but he is a short-term mess. For my money Mitch McConnell is one of the most dangerous politicians in the last century (in terms of future damage done to the nation).

    The way eminent domain works is the government condemns the property, then offers what they believe is a fair purchase price for the property. If agreeable, the gov purchases property and moves forward. If not, then it goes to the courts to decide.

    Perhaps conveniently, the only company to submit a bid for a steel barrier is owned by a Russian oligarch with close ties to Putin. Also conveniently, the steel bid was much more expensive than other options. This is going to be a slush fund payout.
