    I was reading comments yesterday about the first rapper, Ali could be considered the first rapper but the first rap song IMO was “Dylan’s Subterranean Homesick Blues”.

      Lou Reed Walk on the Wild Side



    • runningunnin.454
      10:09 am August 28, 2019 Permalink

      Lot of artists that really couldn’t sing very well could be considered rappers, like Dylan, Cash, Tom T Hall, etc.
      Dylan had a terrible voice; but wrote beautiful songs; there’s some commercial on TV now (don’t even know what they’re selling) and a woman is singing “The Times They Are A Changin”. Love that song, and she certainly has a better voice than ole Bob.

      Lou Reed was not before Dylan.

      Check out Subterranean Homesick Blues. Is this not rap…kinda?

      “She certainly has a better voice than ole Bob.” Lol, that’s a pretty low bar. 😉



    • 4everUKblue
      10:19 am August 28, 2019 Permalink

      Lol, I would bet all of us have a better voice than Bob.



    • runningunnin.454
      10:20 am August 28, 2019 Permalink

      Speaking of weak vocals, there’s the artist that wrote “Me and Bobby McGee”, “Why Me Lord”, and “Help Me Make It Through the Night”. I’ve tried to tell this story before, but when I include his name, it triggers the mod bot.
      When I was in Birmingham, I went to his concert, and students could get in free if they arrive early and set up chairs.
      He was there and drinking a certain Tennessee beverage; he said, “Hey kid, you want a snort?” So we talked and drank from the bottle…boy he was inebriated, ha ha.

      rg, I was listening to Bob & Tom in the car the other morning and they did a skit where Bob Dylan was using one of those breathe rite strips to open up his nose. So when he put it on, he actually sung with a normal, deep baritone. 🙂 I thought it was pretty funny, because I have always said that the dude sings through his nose.



    • RealCatsFan
      10:25 am August 28, 2019 Permalink

      Ahhh, the mysteries of the machinations that make up our beloved ModBot. I have no idea why it would have a problem with KK’s name. Anyway, rg’s post made me crank up the google machine, and I came across this interesting story…

      I have read/heard stories from The Travelling Willburys where Tom Petty said he, George Harrison, and Bob Dylan would write songs and they’d get together and inevitably say, “This is a pretty good song….. Let’s let Roy sing it!” Lol. Roy did have quite the voice.



    • runningunnin.454
      10:31 am August 28, 2019 Permalink

      Speaking of Dylan and that K’s concert, someone yelled out a request, “Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door”.
      He said, ” I don’t think that’s my song”, and he turned to the band, and asked, “Is it”?. Blotto.

      I need to find a football avatar before Saturday.

      Thank you Real, I’m a huge Bowden fan.

      Realme, how about KD?



    • Realme

      Definitely an option. Gonna pay attention on Twitter today and see what looks good.



    • J-Dub421

      A #4 Josh Paschal would be a good option as well.

      UK by 14, yep.



    • RealCatsFan

      I think we will win, but wouldn’t be surprised for it to be uncomfortably close or for us to even trail for a little while. First game jitters and all that…

      Jerry Palm is looking for clicks, that’s the only rational explanation.



  4. Realme
    10:25 am August 28, 2019 Permalink

    Just googled it. Can confirm that Jerry Palm has worse hair than Matt.



    • RealCatsFan
      10:40 am August 28, 2019 Permalink

      I kind of have “bad hair” too – 27 cowlicks all going in different directions. But at 54, I have learned not to fret about it – it’s still all there, and most of it is not grey – at least not yet. But my daughters may change that soon!



    • Realme
      10:44 am August 28, 2019 Permalink

      Matt’s problem is that it’s not all still there, but he’s trying to hide that. IDK what the heck JP is doing. I bet yours is fine. I turned my husband mostly grey right when we got married, lol, but he has lots too.



    • RealCatsFan
      10:51 am August 28, 2019 Permalink

      True story – good friend of mine (who’s daughter is on my older daughter’s VB team) actually lost all of his hair after she was born. She had a lot of health problems as a baby and it was a difficult birth, and the stress triggered him to develop alopecia. He looks like Mr Clean now.



    • RealCatsFan
      10:57 am August 28, 2019 Permalink

      Looks like JP is trying for this look to me:

      I could see Matt with the swirl/comb over hairstyle later in life.

      Exactly RCF.

    Is Miller really telling the truth, or is he just stirring up more crap about the series to try to make UK look bad?



    • J-Dub421
      10:34 am August 28, 2019 Permalink

      Cal has told IU repeatedly that he will NOT come back to Bloomington. He even offered a three game series in Indianapolis and Louisville, with two games in Indianapolis, and they still wouldn’t take the deal. IU keeps insisting on home and home, and it’s not going to happen.



    • runningunnin.454
      10:35 am August 28, 2019 Permalink

      I think Miller is not long for the job. I bet Chris Mack ends up there…unless he’s smart.



    • RealCatsFan
      10:43 am August 28, 2019 Permalink

      I doubt if Mack would go there. His wife has roots in Louisville, he has a good recruiting class, and one dumpster fire in a lifetime is enough for most people.



    • RealCatsFan
      10:44 am August 28, 2019 Permalink

      The better question might be – which Miller goes first?



  6. runningunnin.454

    CCNY still has a basketball program, but they are no longer Division I. They remain the only school to win both the NCAA and NIT tournaments in the same year.



    • 4everUKblue
      11:17 am August 28, 2019 Permalink

      Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young has a basketball program? Is their recruiting pitch we will teach your children well?



    • runningunnin.454
      11:21 am August 28, 2019 Permalink

      They have a top notch cannabis research program!



    • 4everUKblue
      11:21 am August 28, 2019 Permalink

      Oh wait that would be CSNY, sorry, old age is taking it’s toll.



  7. RealCatsFan
    10:41 am August 28, 2019 Permalink

    O-Kay, Realme, here we go with the gross bug stories again! 🙂



    • RealCatsFan
      10:42 am August 28, 2019 Permalink

      So what is more gross – ticks or bedbugs?



    • Realme
      10:47 am August 28, 2019 Permalink

      Bed bugs because they come in groups and ticks are hopefully just one. I was thinking yesterday about how roaches aren’t even the worst, those things that are all legs (house centipedes) are my least fave house invaders. So of course my cat found me one last night. Shudder.



    • runningunnin.454
      10:49 am August 28, 2019 Permalink

      I saw a strange looking bug yesterday; it had long hind legs like a grasshopper, and long front legs. It’s head was on a long neck.
      I don’t think scientists have named it yet…wasn’t a praying mantis; I didn’t mess with it.



    • Realme
      10:51 am August 28, 2019 Permalink

      Um, you didn’t take photos for national geographic? I saw this massive wasp type creature once that was maroon and white. Couldn’t find anything like it online. It went into a bird house in my back yard, so I avoided it for like a year.



    • RealCatsFan
      10:52 am August 28, 2019 Permalink

      Sounds like Realme’s avatar, rg!



    • RealCatsFan
      10:53 am August 28, 2019 Permalink

      Sounds like a cicada killer, Realme. Did it start tossing out bones and feathers after it went into the birdhouse?



    • RealCatsFan
      10:56 am August 28, 2019 Permalink

      I had to go back in the woods behind my house a few years ago, and had literally dozens of ticks crawling up my legs. :O From now on I spray my shoes and pants with permethrin. Works like a charm. It also does a good job repelling spiders from around light posts and in your shed or garage. Just make sure your cat doesn’t get near it until it dries.



    • Realme
      10:58 am August 28, 2019 Permalink

      Well my skin is crawling from googling cicada killer. This was like off white head and middle segment, maroon butt. No stripes and so freaking big.



    • RealCatsFan
      11:02 am August 28, 2019 Permalink

      Fascinating facts about the CK:

      https://www.cicadamania.com/cicadas/10-facts-about-cicada-killer-wasps/

      FYI, most wasps attack spiders and carry them to their nests. I remember knocking down mud dauber nests one time and wondering what all those spiders were doing in there. Now I know – lunch for the kids!



    • J-Dub421
      11:08 am August 28, 2019 Permalink

      When I come home and there’s a dead mangled spider on the floor, all my cats get treats and get told what a good job they did.



    • runningunnin.454
      11:10 am August 28, 2019 Permalink

      I thought about taking pics and showing them to my wife; but, she would be “bugged” all night.



    • Realme

      No fair Jdub. Mine just like to stare at the bugs and wonder why I start screaming and grab a flip flop.
