When the guy dropped off the dumpster yesterday, he said the roofers would start at 7, maybe 6:40.  They were here at 5:40.   hihi  Can't blame them it's hot on those roofs.  A Mexican crew, of course, they get all the grunt work.  Four guys in a two seater van.  They're on it.  My cat has already checked out the van.

Proud of my honest and hard-working countrymen who do everything possible to achieve a better standard of living, even with hard jobs, I know that irregular migration is a very complex issue today from different perspectives, but many are committed to leaving their homes to achieve the famous "American dream", some succeed and others suffer the consequences. I'm glad they have completed the adjustments to your roof.

In this area of ​​the Gulf of Mexico (south of Veracruz) we are experiencing one of the worst heat waves, there is still time to fix the leaks in the roofs  hihi, the rainy season usually begins in mid-May but this year it seems there will not be even light drizzles  Embarrassed.



I'm not sure if it's politically correct to say but I always hope the Mexican guys come to do the labor jobs.  They work their asses off and the job is always good.  I text the company this morning to say besure to tell the crew the neighbor is very happy with their work.  I called them grumpy old men but my friend says bitchy white guys.  hihi

...and now generative AI with which you can create your own music tracks,
in the style you desire, possibly with the voice of your favorite singer.


You ever check out the Axl ones on YouTube?

Some, obviously horrendous.  I would put the vast majority as good, not great.

But the ones that are great are EXCELLENT.  I have a few of him doing Roxette tunes and Adele tunes.  Not artists that typically populate my iPod.  But they are fucking incredibly well done.

I am really ashamed of asking this bc I know Axl will hate these AI cover, but which one of Roxette did you hear? I can't seem to find it anywhere and I am curious which song it is. I listened to the Someone Like You version and I am amazed at how good it is, especially in the chorus. Sounds almost 99% like Axl in early 90's.

A quote from the article:
https://www.ultimate-guitar.com/news/general_music_news/slash_says_guns_n_roses_are_working_on_a_new_album.htm
Since Slash's return in 2016, the band has released a few songs, including "Hard Skool," "Absurd," "Precious," and "The General."

"Precious" is a really cool song rofl

Excellent album. Solid from start to finish and of course killer guitar playing by Slash. Buy it. You won’t be disappointed.

All plants are in ground.  I'm heading for the nail salon.   Cheesy  Took all the houseplants outside for the season too.

Beka and I are plotting a new bed.  We want to do a xeriscape.  It's a garden that doesn't need a lot of water.  I'm tried of walking at an angle between the building and the greenhouse plus it's hell to mow.  One of these days I'm going to fall into the side of the greenhouse.  I'm already collecting plants for it because I want a bigger plant when I put it in but it's a project for fall 2025 or 2026.  I like instant garden.  The plants can just hang out in pots at my place where it's easier for me to care for them.  The Agave and Rattlesnake Master should do well in there and they can get a decent size.  I'm thinking about doing those in mass.  More of a desert look.  I have a big black snake that lives in that area.  I'll have to be careful not to destroy his habitat.

Roofs are done.  The neighbor is happy with the work and complaining about the small pieces left behind.   hihi  I left early this morning and went and gardened all day.  It was all over by the time I got home.

I saw GnR, Metallica and FNM for $35 in 1992. God how things have changed!

Almost 10 and they are still here cleaning up and they have to come back tomorrow to finish.  The neighbor is pissed there is roofing material all over the place.  He made the owner come out who told him it was a construction site and would be all clean before they leave.  Then added $2000 to his bill to replace some decking Mike knew had to be done, would cost him out of pocket because it wasn't connected to the hail storm.  Mike tried to get me all upset by pointing out they put sheets of wood on my grass and it was killing it.  Er, that's shit grass and it's not going to kill it in this short of time.  You know he's still pissed they don't have his car done.   hihi  We do this again, he's picking the fucking contractor.

On a good note, playing 3 people who are better at me in pinball and I took 3 second places and one third.  Did not get my ass kick there.  Cheesy  Bitched at at little bit.   hihi

In regards to your last question, my guess is that if you look around at the crowd, you will see a mix that can be determined by age. Those my age might buy the hardcopies and the younger crowd might be more into streaming - or albums, since they're making a comeback (even the younger folks are jumping onboard). Oddly enough, I'm a spotify guy now but that's only because - when I got a new car about three or four years ago - it didn't come with a CD player. If it did, I'd still buy them. Of course, I'm pretty much stereotyping here and could be completely off.

Personally, I buy physical copies from artists I really like. But I buy less than I used to for sure. Thanks to streaming, I don't need to buy every single CD/LP that has a few good tracks.


There's all kinds of fans at shows. Some, as you pointed out, still like to buy CDs and/or LPs. But I'm sure there are people there who like to listen to the artist on streaming only, and they will still go see the artist every single time. And not just young people.

On top of that, how many of them listen to albums start to finish.



But I wanted to reply because your comment created an enjoyable sense of nostalgia that I'm glad I was able to partake in. I will admit, however, I did not enjoy camping out for concert tickets or trying to call in and buy them over the phone and getting a constant busy signal. However, because it was the musical hardcopies making the bands money, the tickets were cheaper. That I do miss!

The first show I saw was GN'R in 1991. I think my ticket was about $20.

I still buy CD's and vinyl, my 1980's  Hifi is the envy of my kids  hihi  Love getting oriignal pressings of vinyl too, loads of artist have been run through my stylus and the analogue sound and richness of those recordings still rock. Caught the postman the other day sat on my doorstep "taking a breather  rofl" whilst I played The Wall by Floyd. He did say he loves that album and is minded to get a copy himself.
