Kris Holmes's avatar View Kris Holmes's profile Options

Twenty years of dusty fingers, frayed cuticles, & upper respiratory infections — from record digging and DJing around the globe — coalesces into a 2-hour journey through Rhythm & Blues, Soul, Funk, Jazz, Blues, Latin, Rock & Roll, and all points in between. Your speakers will be head-nodding, toe-tapping & even two-stepping to this vintage 45rpm party in no time. Hear favorite songs you didn't know were your favorites, aural treats & record-world problems from the vinyl side of life.

Hi Chresti and C. Just finished up some work and now I’m free until I pass out.

Is Scott a fan of Jack Kirby?
Avatar Tue. 8/20/19 10:20pm Kris Holmes:

I have no idea what that means?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/20/19 10:22pm coelacanth∅:

chresti regarding what you said before yeah i've apparently met several famous people! i supposed some of them are thankful and some are insulted.
whatever.

Hey folks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/20/19 10:25pm Matt from New Orleans:

I figured you wouldn’t. Scott Free is the alias of a character named Mister Miracle that Jack Kirby created for DC in the early 70s. He’s the world’s greatest escape artist as well as a deity from the planet New Genesis but was raised on the evil planet Apokolips.
Avatar Tue. 8/20/19 10:26pm Kris Holmes:

Ah, comics, completely lost on me.
Avatar Tue. 8/20/19 10:26pm Franco Twinkie:

Kris, It's funny you're talking about school...I was asleep when Chresti turned up The Count Five. I dreamed of one of those signs that show a big thermometer to indicate how well the fund raiser is doing. It said Psychotic Reaction in big goofy letters and it was staked on the lawn in front of a high school!
Avatar Tue. 8/20/19 10:27pm Kris Holmes:

hahahaha, best fundraiser theme ever
  Tue. 8/20/19 10:29pm Dean:

New Yorker recently published a cartoon featuring one of those thermometers. The ask was something like, "Contribute to our big thermometer."

Good Evening Mr Holmes, hello everyone.

wow did not know that. weren't they still the high numbers when they did zoot suit?
Avatar Tue. 8/20/19 10:37pm Kris Holmes:

yes High Numbers
Avatar Tue. 8/20/19 10:43pm Franco Twinkie:

Matt, when I was fifteen I went to my first and last comic book convention, at the Disney Land Hotel no less. There was a crowd standing around this grey haired guy taking emphatically to a group of young fans. I asked my friend Michael, who was tripping on PCP, who he was. He squinted thru his hallucination and said "That's Jack Kirby!" then returned to the personal hell he was going through and never said another word the rest of the afternoon.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/20/19 10:46pm doctorjazz:

I Remember Jack Kirby as the Marvel guru, along with Stam Lee. Was not paying attention later when he did DC comics, hadn't realized he did.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/20/19 10:47pm doctorjazz:

Ok,loving the sounds,but gotta crash. Night all!

'night doc
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/20/19 11:01pm Matt from New Orleans:

I met Stan Lee back in the 80s because a good friend’s family owned a newstand distribution business at that time and they distributed Marvel. I discovered that the first house Stan owned was two blocks from where I grew up. He still lived in the neighborhood at that time but in a much larger house and he moved to the west coast not long after.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/20/19 11:02pm Matt from New Orleans:

I used to get all of my comics for free from about 8-13
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/20/19 11:04pm Matt from New Orleans:

I’m a big fan of this Brother Jack and him in general
Avatar Tue. 8/20/19 11:05pm Kris Holmes:

yeah this is just a monster of a cut from him
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/20/19 11:07pm coelacanth∅:

i've never read a comic book. the first comic book i ever even glanced at was when my friend George gave me 2 of them as a birthday present when we were around 11 because they were destined to be valuable one day. (the first superman when it came back (?) and ....something else.)
but a couple a years ago another friend lent/gave me "the smithsonian book of comic-book comics" (hardcover) and it's so fascinating, and entertaining that i've read most of it twice.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/20/19 11:07pm coelacanth∅:

funny -i was just thinking 2 songs ago reminded me of Nina's "revolution"
Avatar Tue. 8/20/19 11:08pm Franco Twinkie:

Yes, comics. I have a sidelong and non-linear relation with them that defines my work to this day.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/20/19 11:09pm chresti:

Thanks Kris, goodnight everyone!
Avatar Tue. 8/20/19 11:10pm Kris Holmes:

Franco (@10.43) my 2 experiences with pcp were fantasic and fun. too bad your friend's wasn't.
...mine was probably a very low dose though. laced joints.
Avatar Tue. 8/20/19 11:13pm still b/p:

I wasn't immersed deep, but had to smuggle 'em home a few times when mom cracked down and said I couldn't buy more until I read real books. Funny, I remember certain words being encountered for the first time in comics. One angle on comics days was that Superman/Batman I read in mid to late 60s were often older reprinted stories, so the older vibe and throwbacky aesthetic were familiar part of the exposure.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/20/19 11:17pm coelacanth∅:

some of the sunday comics were like that too
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/20/19 11:17pm coelacanth∅:

(ie nancy; and beetle baily...)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/20/19 11:19pm coelacanth∅:

- and charlie brown/peanuts.
...i say i didn't read comic books but charlie brown was a significant part of life when i was little and i did read whole books of peanuts comics.
i still love it.
Avatar Tue. 8/20/19 11:19pm still b/p:

Oh, yeah -- Mutt and Jeff, Bringing Up Father (aka Maggie and Jiggs)...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/20/19 11:20pm coelacanth∅:

yeah mutt and jeff. snuffy smith ...
Avatar Tue. 8/20/19 11:21pm still b/p:

And Henry!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/20/19 11:22pm coelacanth∅:

the child me wondered why charlie brown wore a hat when he was walking outside...and -where the hell was he going? just walking?? who does that?!
Avatar Tue. 8/20/19 11:22pm Franco Twinkie:

Coel, We were led to believe that the caps of dust we were doing were mescaline. I too loved it! It was only years later that a chance meeting with our high school friend who supplied us with these suspect capsules admitted to me the charade.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/20/19 11:23pm coelacanth∅:

henry! it's in there, but i might have to pull up an image!
Avatar Tue. 8/20/19 11:26pm still b/p:

You won't regret visiting Henry.

Barney Google and Snuffy Smith, by other passed-pen makers, is still active -- "third longest-running and uninterrupted comics series of all time."
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/20/19 11:27pm coelacanth∅:

Franco mine was also clandestine.
my older sister gave me 2 joints. she probably didn't even know.
i went with a friend to my father's house to eat lunch and we smoked one. never made it back to school.
we decided it was probably laced, and heard all the scare stories, but decided a few days later to smoke the 2nd one anyway.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/20/19 11:30pm coelacanth∅:

ohhh, i see. henry! i actually remember that one about the cakes!
Avatar Tue. 8/20/19 11:33pm still b/p:

The mescaline we all did on a ski trip(!) was revealed later to have been purple microdot. Academic distinction by then, I reckon.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/20/19 11:33pm JtotheK:

such a great Temptations 45!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/20/19 11:34pm coelacanth∅:

i didn't even know what mescaline was then. i just took anything. i was told it was "like lsd" but it paled in comparison.
Avatar Tue. 8/20/19 11:35pm Kris Holmes:

agree, such a great Eddie Kendricks lead on it
Avatar Tue. 8/20/19 11:36pm Franco Twinkie:

Before they were codified into a "thing" comics were mysterious and evocative to me. I have spent much time trying to analyze the effect they've had on my way of looking at life.
Avatar Tue. 8/20/19 11:38pm Franco Twinkie:

Comics and drugs, Ha!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/20/19 11:39pm coelacanth∅:

i suppose charlie brown affected me pretty profoundly.
i always related to charlie brown, liked linus, hated lucy, hated violet even more, had a crush on peppermint patty.....
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/20/19 11:40pm coelacanth∅:

wow is this the original?
Avatar Tue. 8/20/19 11:41pm Kris Holmes:

yes indeed, the gentry played with the avantis many times, covered the song with their blessing
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/20/19 11:42pm coelacanth∅:

they didn't change it much, just sped it up a bit
Avatar Tue. 8/20/19 11:45pm Franco Twinkie:

That is so funny! One of The Gentrys was in a drawing class my first year of college. He turned out to be a narc, and set up another guy in the class. We hated that motherfucker.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/20/19 11:47pm Matt from New Orleans:

Not sure if you have cable Kris or if you do have VICELAND but this show was really interesting look into some sleazy stories from wrestling www.viceland.com...
Avatar Tue. 8/20/19 11:48pm Kris Holmes:

Whoa Franco, that's crazy, wonder which member?
Avatar Tue. 8/20/19 11:49pm Kris Holmes:

i don't have cable or viceland but that sounds intriguing
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/20/19 11:53pm coelacanth∅:

Franco haha! motherfucker, i hate 'im too!
Avatar Tue. 8/20/19 11:53pm Franco Twinkie:

I will just say this: He was so obviously NOT an art student, that it didn't surprise any of us when his cover was blown.

Thanks Kris. I read about the first episode somewhere and then watched the rest as they got posted but haven’t watched any of the other wrestling shows on viceland.
