tiger297–Admittedly lazy, but the round trip walk at a brisk pace is about 45 minutes. Not the same as a gym workout, but it cannot be dismissed. I just got the usual. My everyday, nothing is happening is Johnnie Walker Red Label. (I own shares of Diageo.) On special occasions, I begin to explore the single malts. I have before lived just around the corner from places for booze. While convenient, one never got to walk off the guilt calories.

I can’t understand why the Duane Allman Anthologis weren’t remastered long ago; they’ve always had a “muddy” sound. Tom Dowd’s remastering of “Live At The Filmore” maded all the difference. My personal favorite on DA I is “BB King Blues Medley”
question: is there a way to copy music that is playing on You tube?
yeah I know I’m a villain
January 4th, 201112:23 am
“do you know <b<Hooker & Heat Moe?"
Do you mean John Lee Hooker with Canned Heat? Yep, I am familiar with that. Quite nice.
well hag, they say that Muddy did invent electricity so maybe it’s in honor of him
January 4th, 201112:24 am
ahhh I’m pretty much a single malt snob…not that I’m a snob but a guy I work with got me started on them so about every 4th trip to the liquor store I buy a bottle of something i don’t have…I’m feeling some Laphroig tonight me thinks.
yeah Moe that was the album title i believe. quite tasty
January 4th, 201112:26 am
hi tiger, I like single malt scotch too, just caint afford it much anymore
January 4th, 201112:27 am
nolie, I am listening to it now. Very nice.
What happens, when facebook makes one want to cry. I have only been on for a month-and-a-half. An old friend just changed her profile picture. I just want to cry. Supriya is Mahatma Gandhi’s great-granddaughter but far more lovely than he. Just posted a new profile photo that makes one want to gasp.
“well hag, they say that Muddy did invent electricity so maybe it’s in honor of him”
Nolie, I always thought it was you.
January 4th, 201112:31 am
tiger297–Laphroig is very nice. I am a huge fan of single malt. Just relegated it to special occasions. On the everyday, I take Johnnie Walker. On any occasion, I explore something else.
January 4th, 201112:32 am
nah Trey that is in reference to electric blues.
I caint pick worth a damn anymore because of nerve damage. Not that i ever was great at it anyway
I’ve just sampled a new,(for me) barbeque joint called Blind Pig not too far out of Jackson, Ga off highway 36. Conyers Ga 20 to 212 to 162 to 36–left at the four way stop will get you there, about 28 miles from I-20 ad 138..
They were featured in ‘Atlanta Magazine’s’ top 50 in the Atlanta vicinity a little over a year ago, finishing #5, with photos. Great pulled pork with extremely tasty slaw and baked beans made special by the presence of sausage in the mix. The brunswick stew has a nice bite, but not too much. The smoked turkey is moist and the ribs have a light, vinegar touch. I haven’t been as impressed with a new place since my first visit to Fox Bros. just before Christmas. Can’t beat the ride on a nice day on the bike as Blind Pig is close to Jackson Lake.
“Hurt Locker” is on pause a couple of rooms away, my first viewing.
January 4th, 201112:33 am
Well damn, Noles. I completely missed the whole topic. Kinda like a baseball sailing over Melky’s head.
January 4th, 201112:34 am
haggard, I am lusting for this pulled pork. I am so envious of your access. I can get some quite good brisket nearby. But BBQ is pulled pork in my book. Brisket is BBQ substitute.
January 4th, 201112:35 am
There may be a better way, but you can download “Audacity”, play the cut, and shape it however you want. I learned about “Audacity” from Mixxo last spring.
January 4th, 201112:44 am
Knowing of your love of Community Barbeque, I can say with all certainty Blind Pig would suit your palate. The funny thing was, I was traveling down to Macon to look in on Tommy Joe Tucker down at Tucker’s Barbeque when I saw Blind Pig’s sign and decided to try it on a whim, (after passing the sign for the past two years).
I tried a pulled pork sandwich with stew, continued on to Tucker’s where I had the same–plus homemade fries, then returned to Blind Pig the following day to sample the ribs with a couple of friends. “The Pig” has only been around for two years, but the following is large and loyal already.
Tucker’s was a staple when I was a student in Macon and, twenty-five years later, it’s still just as good.
haggard, after you go check out the Thai Restaurant of Norcross, go check out Sabri on Singleton, just a little east of Jimmy Carter. Their kebabs are good and the biryani is among the best in Atlanta. It does not compare to that available in Delhi or Calcutta, but then again, how many people have access to those places. It is good for the metro area.
January 4th, 201112:45 am
All this talk about BBQ; I am ’bout to get some BBQ.
January 4th, 201112:48 am
haggard, you are making me crave BBQ so much. I like BBQ beef fine, but it is not pulled pork. In Chicago, I used to make my own. Should probably resume doing so. Have been having too much beef as a substitute, since I moved here.
January 4th, 201112:49 am
You have my undivided attention. No kidding; Thai Restaurant of Norcross is within sight tomorrow
January 4th, 201112:50 am
Where in the world are you going to get barbeque this time of the morning? Do you have your own pit out back?
January 4th, 201112:53 am
haggard, I bought a thing of BBQ pulled chicken from a Farm Fresh right down the road. I didn’t see the pork, so I settled with the chicken. Really good stuff.
haggard, go on my behalf. I really hope you enjoy it. I love the Thai Restaurant of Norcross. If you like Korean BBQ, there is a Korean BBQ buffet near the corner of Pleasant Hill and Satellite. You go and select the raw meat, and they cook it at the table for you. I have gone there with my Korean sister-in-law, definitely signs off on it. They also have a good bit of sushi. Add it to your list, as well.
January 4th, 201112:54 am
In you new locale I would think brisket would be king. But–as you say–it’s no substitute for pulled pork.
The great thing about Tucker’s was they were open until 2AM, six days a week, and many a study session was ended–or interrupted–by a late night visit.
January 4th, 201112:56 am
Moe, I think I went to that Korean buffet. I was about to ask if it had sushi and I saw you say they did have sushi. They have a lot of desert too, don’t they? I may be thinking of a different one, but; I could have sworn that is the one.
January 4th, 201112:58 am
haggard, brisket is definitely king here. It is fine. There are several options run by former OU football players, including several former NFL players, including Billy Sims. I like brisket. But when I want BBQ, I want pulled pork. No matter how good the brisket is, I still crave pork.
Barbeque chicken. That’s good anytime and is the one item I’ve yet to try on the menu at Blind Pig. Evidently it’s outstanding as well because they were sold out early in the day this past Sunday.
Do you have your own sauce?
January 4th, 201112:59 am
does audacity download the cut hag or only work on stuff you already have?
January 4th, 20111:00 am
Haggard, it came with its own sauce. It was pre-made. It just needs to be heated up and it’s good to go. As for BBQ places I have never heard of The Blind Pig, but; I have heard of the GA Pig.
January 4th, 20111:01 am
Goodness, it sounds as if you’re in serious need of a fix and you have me wondering if I shouldn’t invest in a supply of dry ice and a shipping cooler tomorrow and prepare to send some yopur way.
BBQ doesn’t do much for me, don’t really dislike it just pretty indifferent to it
January 4th, 20111:05 am
haggard, I will be okay. There is a place in town–Van’s Pig Stand–that is okay. Not quite what I can get at home, but it can head off convulsions. I am needing a fix and will be to Van’s this week to take the edge off the craving. If I need the dry ice investment, I will let you know.
January 4th, 20111:06 am
When you’re using it for something like YouTube, you set up “Audacity”, hit “Record”, capture your cut real time, then got back and adjust EQ, bass boost, normalize, etc. Of course, then you hope your YouTube source is good. Then you can export form Audacitty as MP3 or wav.
January 4th, 20111:09 am
Moe – what is the name of the Que joint that is basically in a gas station. I ate there when I was in town.
January 4th, 20111:11 am
With your pedigree, you strike me more as a lover of fine Italian cuisine. Am I right?
tiger297–Van’s is in an old gas station. Is that what you mean? Ray’s smokehouse is in an old Pizza Hut location. Billy Sim’s is in a strip mall. Probably Van’s–on the east side of downtown?
January 4th, 20111:13 am
haggard, you go and mention fine Italian cuisine, and I want to hear fine Italian music. Listening to Maria Callas after a couple of hours of blues. I adore her.
Italian and Greek, but my “pedigree” is mostly Celtic
January 4th, 20111:14 am
Okay, the Hall Of Fame ballots were due from all five-hundred and some odd voters by December 31st. Are Blyleven and Alomar going in?
the office was off of chautauqua south of the university, no clue as to the name of it. It wasn’t anything special but it was BBQ and it was close to the office.
January 4th, 20111:15 am
Here ya go. Some BBQ restaurants.
“Italian and Greek, but my “pedigree” is mostly Celtic’
Yes, but how often can one want corned beef and cabbage?
I think it very likely, especially Bly
January 4th, 20111:16 am
not very often Moe
January 4th, 20111:18 am
An instructor in college first exposed me to her music, as well as this quote, which makes me wish I knew more about opera than I presently do:
“An opera begins long before the curtain goes up and ends long after it has come down. It starts in my imagination, it becomes my life, and it stays part of my life long after I’ve left the opera house.”
tiger297–hmm. No, it’s not Van’s then. It is north of the university. South off Chatauqua. That can’t be far from me, trying to think of which place. Will go poke around town and try to figure out which one. I live just a couple of blocks west of Chatauaqua. Want to explore all of the bbq options available.
January 4th, 20111:21 am
haggard, that is a beautiful quote. She has a wonderful voice. I credit my mother with my love for opera. When I was a child, she would drop me to preschool, go to the public library, check out an opera, go home to listen to it before having to come pick me up. The first opera I ever went to see was with her (Rigoletto). I don’t claim to know a huge amount about it, but really love it.
January 4th, 20111:24 am
guess I’m having a stupid night hag. I clicked record and started playing the youtube selection but nothing was recorded as far as I can tell
January 4th, 20111:25 am
nolie- yes the single malts do get expensive. I try and buy 2 bottles a year and don’t drink nearly that much so I end up with a rotation of 5-6 bottles at any given time.
Moe – got curious and looked it up it is called Rudy’s and it is just south of highway 9.
I guess I’d lump opera in with BBQ
January 4th, 20111:27 am
You can tell immediately as the level meters will react.. Did you adjust the “input” volume, as well as the “output”?
January 4th, 20111:28 am
tiger297–Yes, Rudy’s. I have had it. Quite good. Regarding single malts, do you have a favorite?
January 4th, 20111:30 am
“I guess I’d lump opera in with BBQ”
How about kebabs? I have had the most sublime kebabs in the world in Delh,quite near the Jama Masjid. Karim’s is a dive but the best meat my palate has ever encountered.
January 4th, 20111:33 am
From previous conversations a few months ago, I realize Jennifer Larmore does not perform the kind of opera you most enjoy. However, I did want to mention I was fortunate enough to sit in on one of her Masters Workshops, taught before a group of students at Kennesaw State. She has a reputation as the “anti-diva” and she certainly lived up to it that afternoon as she instructed in a very down-to-earth manner and had the students “eating out of her hand”.
after I hit stop do I just hit play to hear it? Input and output are near the top. curser is moving across two gray bands.
January 4th, 20111:36 am
Kebabs are great, but I’ll still pass on the opera. just not sophisticated enough I guess
January 4th, 20111:38 am
yes. Just tap the “Play” arrow. Up in the top right-hand corner, did you choose an input? “Stereo mix” or “line in”? “Stereo Mix” usually works.
January 4th, 20111:39 am
nolie, I think you could like it. Does not require great sophistication. The first opera I ever owned was the multiple lp set of Don Giovanni. It is about a 17th c. philanderer and the father of a targeted woman trying to protect her. Not a huge fan of Mozart, but there are some great arias. Anyone who likes blues can like opera–the same pathos and passion.
January 4th, 20111:41 am
nolie, okay, skip the opera. Come visit me at my flat in Calcutta. We’ll get kebabs there and listen to Indian music–Rabindrasangeet–as we eat. Very good to pass the time, while having great food.
January 4th, 20111:44 am
honestly it depends on my mood. On a cold evening like tonight I like a heavy/peaty one so I picked Laphroig. But most people have to work up to that. Glenmorangie is a good solid highlands scotch that is very good introduction. If I’m drinking on a night out I’ll usually do Glenlivet or maybe Balvine.
January 4th, 20111:51 am
I don’t see any input option in the upper right corner had ;(
January 4th, 20111:52 am
chippers last stand
January 4th, 201111:00 am
if chipper bats 3rd , will mccann have to carry his walker for him ?
January 4th, 20111:19 pm
nolie, January 3rd, 2011, 6:58 pm … “most liberal poster (the one who takes stuff way too seriously) T’
how in the world does “liberal” equal taking things too seriously?”
nolie, January 3rd, 2011, 6:59 pm … “do you mean “literal” ?”
We have a winnah!
October 4th, 20121:59 pm
I can not participate now in discussion – there is no free time. I will return – I will necessarily express the opinion on this question.

Home gym workouts need not be any less effective than workouts done in a gym, provided certain basic principles are observed. A home gym is unlikely to have the same professional equipment as a commercial gym, so some adjustments will be necessary. Here is how to get the best results from a home gym workout.*-
