    I like both. Apples and oranges.

    Is this the Wills piece?: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eQ4oXhpgVEs

    TNP prefers apples to oranges.

    My mobile connection is so poor at home I can't easily see if that's the one. Just the classic Bob Wills fiddling, and probably Tommy Duncan singing.

    NEGATIVE Unless the orange is rotten or one of those weird soft fancy tiny oranges, I enjoy oranges. Apples....meh....yeah, if I were starving or dehydrated, they are a food, that's for sure.

    TNP spoke curtly to work people today at least a few times. OR, I guess it's Saturday, so substitute sometime last week, for all you fancy people who don't work Saturdays.

    Ond, yes, that is the Bob Wills record, now that I heard that track -- I just love that old fiddling.

    Good god! It's a raid! Cut out the lights!

    Hunh!

    Yeah that's the original record I was thinking of.

    Lawd! Unh. Bring on the juice! Make me sweat! Hunh!

    No, can't think of anyone I've been curt to in awhile now.

    TNP knows one Curt and one Kurt.

    NO, actually IRL I don't know anyone by those names. ETA And actually, I don't think I ever have IRL. I have also never been a communist nor can I name names!

    TNP is disappointed more people don't use (i) my woman (ii) my old lady to talk about their SOs.

    I think it's weird and should be punished by waterboarding.

    TNP has eaten pizza in the last 41.8 hours.

    No, because I stopped being a perpetually-hungover fratboy over the .... wait a minute ... well, the answer is still no, but only because I forgot to get a frozen pizza at the grocery!

    TNP is overjoyed that Trojan Man finally stopped menstruating and started coming 'round here more often.

    TNP is looking forward to easter.

    Ehhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. No, I can't think that far ahead.

    TNP has used the term "mutha" IRL (you remember, with real people and out loud and shit) recently.

    Nah, that would totally not work for me.

    TNP commonly dresses in such a way as to be easily mistaken for an off-duty cop.

    Oh HELL no. Maybe I could be mistaken for a fancy lad or a generic office drone, but not a cop.

    TNP can explain exactly what an off-duty cop looks like! I figure just a regular working class Joe Sixpack, except with the donut gut and the porn moustache. But I could be wrong. Maybe just strutting around like the King of Siam attitude?

    Some cops I know have some or all of those attributes - others none!

    TNP has talked to a friendly cop in the past month.

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!! No, my cousin was a cop for a stint in the roughest part of town, and there are some regular people. But, no, I just don't get involved if I can help it.

    TNP thinks something about that job just makes customs agents really disagreeable.

    I have met more than a few curt and/or surly customs officers over the years, it's true.

    TNP will try this the next time he or she crosses an international border: when the customs officer asks you if you have any firearms, ammunition, explosives, drugs or other contraband, look over one shoulder, then the other, and then lean in and whisper with a sly smile, "What do you need?"

    Yeah, that's guaranteed to end up with laughs all-around and knee-slapping hilarity. In a dark room with a single bright lamp. Naked.

    TNP laments humanity when you hold your hand out for a low-five hand slap and the other person tries to shake your hand instead.

    Probably would if I ever tried it.

    TNP has developed a sudden obsession recently.

    Hmmm. No, my obsession with Keira Knightley is over a decade old now.

    TNP has seen at least three Keira Knightley movies: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Keira_...ey#Filmography

    Hell yeah. Even at least one of those Pirate Caribbean movies. I think she's fantastic, and from what little I know of her relationship to the press, she's on the good side of trying to stick up for women who don't want to be just another piece of ass.

    TNP is not ever going to watch all those Pirate/Carib movies -- they may be entertaining (if you have a head injury, or a BAC of 4.5%), but still, a little much.

    True. I've missed the last two.

    TNP would like to visit the Caribbean this year.

    I'd be OK with that, but my travel plans probably aren't going that way.

    TNP has been to Barbados.

    Yes, just once, as a kid on a family trip. A beautiful place, and I had a good time.

    TNP knew that George Washington's only trip outside what is now the U.S. was to Barbados: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George...use_(Barbados)

    No.

    TNP knows a classic jazz tune called "Barbados," however.

    I didn't before now, but I found this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k0FJ1SdS-ts

    TNP wonders, if the Bird had been clean and sober, he'd've been as talented.

    Well, that's the standard meme, but I don't think so at all. HOWEVER, if one is unhappy or feels like he or she is missing something in his or her personal life, I've no doubt expression is hindered. So. "As talented"? YES "As emboldened to create prolific records and compositions?"" Perhaps not

    TNP doesn't think anyone from Bird's time/place/social milieu could have ever really been described as "clean" by straight America's standards. Sober? Sure, lots of great musicians were. "Clean"? Damn few. Maybe John Lewis or some of the more art-house high-class artists.

    Sounds about right.

    TNP thinks jazz clubs would be OK if you didn't have to put up with jazz snobs when you went to one.
