Countdown. 9 posts to 6,000 on my 6 year anniversary. Ask me anything!
As long as it doesn't involve Olive Garden, Fried Chicken, Pitbulls, or Breastfeeding. I'm easy.

1. From the title to a very old Bill Cosby album - why is there air?

11. GREAT question!
Yes I did. My previous avatar was the late, great Blues bassist, writer, and producer Willie Dixon. My current one is Tommy Shannon, bassist for Stevie Ray Vaughn and Johnny Winter among others.

Nice catch!

12. Any particular reason for the change, or was it just time for a change?

14. Just paying homage to my inspirations.
I had Willie's up for a long time, and just thought I'd start paying respect to the other great bassists who've been influential to my playing.

16. Hey, I resemble that comment.

And BTW, Marty Feldman was a comedic genius IMHO. RIP Marty.

21. Well, Feldman had a good heart. Goobernator may have been the result of a one-night stand.
With a lizard. Amazing how alcohol affects the vision.

20. Well, seeing as how Moondog and CaliforniaPeggy tied for the last question...
I will post for number 6,000 a song that inpires my general outlook on life. Cosmik Debris, by Frank Zappa. Enjoy. :)

http://youtu.be/KeQ_S8G16Rw

The Mystery Man came over
An' he said: "I'm outa-site!"
He said, for a nominal service charge,
I could reach Nirvana t'nite
If I was ready, willing 'n able
To pay him his regular fee
He would drop all the rest of his pressing affairs
And devote His Attention to me
But I said . . .
Look here brother,
Who you jivin' with that Cosmik Debris?
(Now who you jivin' with that Cosmik Debris?)
Look here brother,
Don't you waste your time on me

The Mystery Man got nervous
An' he fidget around a bit
He reached in the pocket of his Mystery Robe
An' he whipped out a shaving kit
Now, I thought it was a razor
An' a can of foamin' goo
But he told me right then when the top popped open
There was nothin' his box won't do
With the oil of Afro-dytee
An' the dust of the Grand Wazoo
He said:
"You might not believe this, little fella, but it'll cure your Asthma too!"
An' I said . . .
Look here brother,
Who you jivin' with that Cosmik Debris?
(Now what kind of a gooroo are you anyway?)
Look here brother,
Don't you waste your time on me
Don't waste yer time . . .

I've got troubles of my own, I said
An' you can't help me out
So take your meditations an' your preparations
An' ram it up yer snout
"BUT I GOT A CRYSTAL BALL!," he said
An' held it to the light
So I snatched it
All away from him
An' I showed him how to do it right
I wrapped a newspaper 'round my head
So I'd look like I was Deep
I said some Mumbo Jumbos then
An' told him he was goin' to sleep
I robbed his rings
An' pocket watch
An' everything else I found
I had that sucker hypnotized
He couldn't even make a sound
I proceeded to tell him his future then
As long as he was hanging around,
I said
"The price of meat has just gone up
An' yer ol' lady has just gone down . . . "
Look here brother,
Who you jivin' with that Cosmik Debris?
(Now is that a real poncho or is that a Sears poncho?)
Don't you know,
You could make more money as a butcher,
So don't you waste your time on me
(Don't waste it, don't waste your time on me . . . )
Ohm shonty, ohm shonty, ohm shonty-ohm
SSHONTAY
