Very cool. There’s an interview with MK on YouTube somewhere where he talks about the unlikelihood of any more Vai piano reductions from him but mentions the possibility of a Japanese woman picking up the mantle.


From Vai newsletter:

Piano Reductions Vol II
I'm just wrapping up works on a "Piano Reductions: Vol. II" that will probably be the next thing I release. I love these records and this time we found the amazingly talented Miho Arai to perform these songs on solo piano. Miho and I have been working on this record on and off for the past 2 years. She is quite extraordinary and the record came out so beautifully. Not sure of the release date yet but we will keep you posted and will be giving more details in the future.

You imagine wrong. In fact, I was almost laughing during the song, since Waters' criticisms of Trump are, of course, almost entirely incorrect. Hillary is far more applicable in Pigs than Trump...

Almost incorrect? Which small parts of it were correct in your view?

Did you get a chance to tell Roger how he was interpreting his own song incorrectly?

Roger Waters is a damn communist, stay away.

Saw Lambchop yesterday in Hasselt, Belgium. Last show of the world tour.

Next will be Alice Cooper on November, 18th. In february 2018 Steven Wilson, Essen (home match) and Randy Newman in march, Antwerp. Belgium again. They got damn good food and beers :D

In the meantime I'll find something else.

Gonna be in LA next month & planning to go to the Baked Potato for the Monday Night Jam w/ Jamie Kime. I went to one of those last year and had a great time.

Monday Night Pro Jammz”…yeah baby!
Chris Roy-Bass
Jamie Kime-Guitar
Special Guest on Drums & Guitar
Anything Goes
Jamm Night Bring Your Axe

While on the Baked Potato website I noticed that the following are playing there on Nov 10:

Mike Miller Super All Stars
Chad Wackerman…Awesome Drums
Jimmy Johnson…Mega Bassss…
Walt Fowler…Blowing Trumpet
Mike Miller…Burnin’ Guitar


I thought Walt Fowler didn't play much anymore. I'd love to go to that if I was in LA that night!

Hillary is the Pig, not Trump. Hillary is the corrupt one, not Trump. And there were plenty of MISQUOTES and OUT OF CONTEXT quotes on the video/projection screens.

Did you get a chance to view the 8 clips I recently posted regarding how global warming is a scam?

Would they help me interpret Roger Waters' lyrics better?

As an explanation for why climate change is a "scam", I find them utterly unconvincing, particularly from clip 3 onwards, as they merely repeat themselves with an increasingly unqualified cast. I've already talked about #1 and #2 - here's the rest...

Video #3 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RrQxidb4xSQ) is by the retired weatherman John Coleman, who begins his clip by employing the reassuringly scientific language: 'The name of this presentation is "There is no significant global warming" and I'm the guy that is just doggone sure of that'. Unfortunately, asking a weather man about long-term climate change is like asking a modern-day plumber about the aquaduct system of ancient Rome. Plus, he makes the claim that the arctic ice shelf is increasing, a claim that is manifestly untrue.

Video #4 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4cxdzm2fnA4) is David Wilcock "debunking" Al Gore. Wilcock's scientific credentials also include the belief in ancient aliens, reincarnation and ancient prophecies that predicted quantam physics: I didn't find him terribly convincing.

Video # 5 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TCy_UOjEir0) is at least a Nobel prize winner! Unfortunately, he got the prize for 'experimental discoveries regarding tunnelling phenomena in superconductors'. Ivar Giavever got interested in the topic of climate change by googling it in 2008. He has done no real research on this topic, is not an expert in this field and confines himself to manipulating statistics whilst reciting boring anecdotes about some trip he made to Berlin.

Video #6 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C35pasCr6KI) is an interview with Garth Paltridge, Peter Reid and Bob Carter, all Australians. The first, actually has some qualification to opine on climate change. Paltridge believes that climate change is happening, was caused by man but that its effects are not significant. Here is a link explaining why he is probably wrong in his final conclusion...https://royalsociety.org/topics-policy/ ... estion-17/. Peter Reid's conclusions are of a limited value as he is a marine biologist. Bob Carter, a marine geologist, has been effectively debunked here...https://www.skepticalscience.com/Bob_Carter_arg.htm

Video #7 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vFK-UTGH1Zw) is a hearing in which the "well-known scientists", Democrat Al Gore and Republican Steve Scalise, get into an argument. Scalise offers the equivalent of Trump's estimate of crowd sizes by denying that there is a scientific consensus. Neither he nor Gore are really scientists, but I suppose that in the land of the blind the one-eyed man is king.

Video #8 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G7VUg7nG3lw) is that other "well-known scientist" Newt Gingrich. How can I trust anybody whose Christian name is that of an amphibian?

Also some of them videos are a tad, er, old.

You appear to be of the opinion that the more youtube videos you post, the more convincing your argument is. Unfortunately, repetition of conclusions gleaned through transparently skewing statistics by a bunch of non-experts does not make those conclusions more convincing - at least not for me.

Despite your desire that one should be convinced without consulting any other outside sources, I found the following site to be rather useful in proving that all 8 clips contained no conclusions of value whatsoever.
The basic claims made in your clips about the climate ("Climate's changed before", "It's the sun", "It's not bad", "There is no consensus", "It's cooling", "Models are unreliable", "Temp record is unreliable" "Animals and plants can adapt", "It hasn't warmed since 1998", "Antarctica is gaining ice") are all debunked here...
https://www.skepticalscience.com/

BTW, did you hear about the draft report, published Monday, by scientists from 13 federal agencies that '[t]he average temperature in the United States has risen rapidly and drastically since 1980, and recent decades have been the warmest of the past 1,500 years...“Many lines of evidence demonstrate that human activities, especially emissions of greenhouse (heat-trapping) gases, are primarily responsible for recent observed climate change,” they wrote.'
https://www.nytimes.com/2017/08/07/clim ... v=top-news

Yes, this was off-topic.
