Re: “Banana Schlitz, Sports & Milk

I bought this album and think it is quite good. I'm no music expert and am not familiar with Cooley's other work, but I don't think the songs are particularly retro. This review doesn't mention All Bad News or Silver Dollars, which I think are the best songs.

Great history and future Tsunamibots! Glad my TRS-80 model 1 level 1 managed to keep up. I'm happy to be part of it.

Re: “Grace Potter and Guster's Ryan Miller Talk Vermont

Grace is a remarkable artist, performer and person. Her band has an incredible energy and personality. I am so grateful I had the opportunity to watch her perform live.

Exactly, Egmatic. Not to mention that picture of her tells me what she is selling - and it's not music.

Re: “Grace Potter and Guster's Ryan Miller Talk Vermont

Driving up from Tennessee to Burlington as we speak specifically for this festival. I was born and raised in Miami and still live there. My mom bought an old farmhouse on 21 acres in TN and is renovating it. She is uniquely going back to her Roots while I'm venturing into and up through this beautiful counrty and VT is an ideal destination for this journey together.

Re: “Grace Potter and Guster's Ryan Miller Talk Vermont

Great festival, but for that headliner. This article shows her lack of depth and the complete sell-out her career is. But good for her, if what she wants is money and Hollywood and all that superficial crap.

Re: “Willy Lindner, Life, Still, With Mandolin

Shannon's "Starlight" always moistens my eyes, and I don't know why. Willie''s intro to the song is the definition of tasteful imaginative composition. But I thought the same thing! Where has this album been since I first heard Willie sing "Donna on Horseback" around three decades ago.

Re: “Four More Local Albums You (Probably) Haven't Heard

Maybe my access is blocked because of my browser, but I couldn't connect to the Queen Louisa track.

Wow, "Pretty Lousy" is actually pretty great! He's got a nice mixture of uptempo and downtempo songs, too. I quite enjoyed it.

The UnKommon album, to be honest, isn't the style to which I typically listen, but those rappers clearly have a lot of style and skill. I hear a couple of different approaches to rapping switching things up.

Re: “Binger, Skeptics

Skeptics is an album that shows the maturity of a musical band in the same mode as the Police. Shakir's bass is reminiscent of Sting's, except with more musical range. Brady's guitar is electric and Muzzy's drumming is cool and does not overshadow Shak's bass or Brady's guitar.
Abstraction is what it implies and showcases the group's musical range and dexterity while the quick fire rapping from Shak fits it well. Strings, Look at the Lilacs and If I Knew are the other stand out songs. Guest vocalist Steph challenges both Shak and Brady to up their lyrical game. Overall Skeptics is a better album than it seems at first and will grow on you. It is musically and lyrically complex and not the run of the mill noisy, throw away albums that you will soon forget. Binger should be complimented for their courage for staying true to their music.

Re: “Bernie Songs From VT and Beyond

This website is really well keep going like this having different songs on this page keeps us fresh and very cool.
Music is a really good thing for human being. Music is something that every person has his or her own specific opinion about. Different people have different taste, and various types of music have many ways of leaving an impact on someone. It can be relaxing, angering, soothing, energizing, and many more. There are so many types of music out there today. songs Rap, pop, rock, country, indie, alternative, hardcore are some of the abundant types in the world.Music sends out either good or bad messages that have big impacts on how people act. People usually become friends with others who have a same taste in music as the rest of the people they hangout with, or it can be vice versa. People may not want to
associate with people who have different tastes in music because they’ll argue about what they think is better but its just their own opinions.I can personally relate to the effects that music has on its listeners and users because it’s a big part of my life. Every day I listen to the words and sounds of different singers/bands with contrasting ideas and opinions. The music I listen makes me who I am?

Re: “A Paean to the Pants

Great piece! Dave from The Zambonis here. We played many shows at Toast w the amazing Pants. Slept on Tom's floor after gigs. Their music has always been with me. Side note: played a gig tonight in Brooklyn and used my fave crappy amp, my friend asked, is that the amp that was used on The Pants song 2000? Yup. Eat Crow was recorded here in CT with Zamboni / Philistine jr super producer/friend/UVM grad Peter Katis. PANTS FOREVER!

Re: “Soundbites: Scarface in … Barre?

"As usual, there's probably a bunch of bands playing at a bunch of bars in celebration of getting grotesquely drunk and in cartoonish appropriation of cultural traditions. What fun!

Look, I'm not going to write about that shit."

Haha!! Amazing! I feel the same way...That exact scene was happening at Gusto's after the show. I now know why people refer to it as "Dis-Gusto's".

I now see: as pointed out by an amigo: that the above statement was quoting Chris Rock, and not the authors statement. My apologies to Dan Bolles! peace.

Re: “Kyle Kinane on Comedy, Bernie and Mountain Biking

Bicycles should not be allowed in any natural area. They are inanimate objects and have no rights. There is also no right to mountain bike. That was settled in federal court in 1996: . It's dishonest of mountain bikers to say that they don't have access to trails closed to bikes. They have EXACTLY the same access as everyone else -- ON FOOT! Why isn't that good enough for mountain bikers? They are all capable of walking....

A favorite myth of mountain bikers is that mountain biking is no more harmful to wildlife, people, and the environment than hiking, and that science supports that view. Of course, it's not true. To settle the matter once and for all, I read all of the research they cited, and wrote a review of the research on mountain biking impacts (see ). I found that of the seven studies they cited, (1) all were written by mountain bikers, and (2) in every case, the authors misinterpreted their own data, in order to come to the conclusion that they favored. They also studiously avoided mentioning another scientific study (Wisdom et al) which did not favor mountain biking, and came to the opposite conclusions.

Mountain biking accelerates erosion, creates V-shaped ruts, kills small animals and plants on and next to the trail, drives wildlife and other trail users out of the area, and, worst of all, teaches kids that the rough treatment of nature is okay (it's NOT!). What's good about THAT?

To see exactly what harm mountain biking does to the land, watch this 5-minute video:

In addition to all of this, it is extremely dangerous: .

Re: “Soundbites: Scarface in … Barre?

Scarface was not 'the first guy to do his rhymes in the first person about robbing people and drug dealing.'
Take a look at Ice-T's "6 'N the Morning" or "9mm" by BDP KRS-One & Scott LaRock. These were in '86 & '87 respectively.
