His name was clearly unmasked and leaked which is illegal, and proves that we have felons in our CI divisions.

Kushner hasn't really done anything anyway.

I'd bet my house on the odds that if someone on Obama's team did the same, you'd have gone ballistic

Below 40% approval for 11 days, the longest stretch so far.

And of course, it is all Obama's fault  Yeah, RIGHT.
5  Practice Break / Chit-Chat / Re: Make me laugh. on: May 23, 2017, 03:13PM

A group of women were at a seminar on how to live in a loving relationship with their husbands.
The women were asked, "How many of you love your husband?" All the women raised their hands.
Then they were asked, "When was the last time you told your husband you loved him?"
Some women answered today, a few yesterday, and some couldn't remember.
The women were then told to take out their cell phones and text their husband - "I love you, Sweetheart"
Next the women were instructed to exchange phones with one another and read aloud the text message they received in response to their message.
Below are 12 hilarious replies. If you have been married for quite a while, you understand that these replies are a sign of true love. Who else would reply in such a succinct and honest way?
1. Who the hell is this?             
2. Eh, mother of my children, are you sick or what?
3. Yeah, and I love you too. What's wrong?
4. What now? Did you wreck the car again?
5. I don't understand what you mean..
6. What the hell did you do now?
7. Don't beat about the bush, just tell me how much you need.
8) Am I dreaming?
9. If you don't tell me who this message is actually for, someone will                  die.
10. I thought we agreed you wouldn't drink during the day..
11. Your mother is coming to stay with us, isn't she?

That's a big sound for a sackbut isn't it? It sounds a lot like a regular trombone.

I agree. I love his tone.

How about getting the tube rotated 180 deg so the worn part is not the on the load bearing side?

That is a good idea and I've been considering it!

Another concern when weighing the option of replacing inners is the ability to remove the leadpipe without damaging it. Competent brass techs can do so 99% of the time, but there is always a chance that they can't. And if the leadpipe is damaged or destroyed and it has to be replaced, it would be a crap shoot that the horn will play as it did with the original one.

At this point, I am unwilling to take a chance.

Trombotine has been my slide lube of choice for years. And when my slide is cleaned and freshly lubed, it is fine.

I was told that good old superslick is the best for Conn slides. I have several tubs lying around so I may give that a try.
15  Horns, Gear, and Equipment / Repairs, Modifications and Maintenance / 6H inner slide tubes: replace or retain on: May 19, 2017, 09:06PM
I have been wrestling with the decision of whether or not to replace the inner slide tubes on my late 50's 6H. Visually they actually don't look too bad. But there is a small are of scratchy plating loss on one spot where the stocking begins. If I stay on top of things (cleaning, etc) it moves perfectly fine. But it isn't as low maintenance as it used to be, and nowhere as easy to deal with as other horns I've owned over the years.

I'd come to the conclusion that I would budget the slide replacement. But after consulting with an older veteran trombone player/repairmen friend of mine, I changed my mind.

He pointed out the specs are different now than when my horn was produced. "improvements" have been made in manufacturing slide tubes, etc. And this means that tolerances won't necessarily be the same. And as a result, the sound and playing characteristics will change too. It doesn't mean that it will be worse, but it will be different.

With that in mind, I am staying the course. I can do just fine with my slide as is. I absolutely love the depth of tone and response - it is like no other horn (and no other 6H) that I have owned. So, as they say, if it ain't broke, don't fix it.

When I was playing in Germany I was blessed to spend a lot of time with Bobby (Butter) Burgess (on bands and hanging out). He was a font of great advice. He gave me the same advice regarding changing slide tubes.

RIP Bobby; you were right all along.

I don't agree with definitive statements as to who is "the greatest" (in any of the arts). This isn't the Olympics; medals are not awarded.

It is subjective. I love Teagarden, Jimmy Harrison, Quentin Jackson, J.J., Rosolino, Slide Hampton, Curtis Fuller, Ray Anderson, Fontana, Roswell Rudd and countless others.

As a jazz trombonist, I count all of them as influences.

Here are the Clinton articles of impeachment

Article I accuses him of lying under oath in grand jury testimony.

Article II accuses him of encouraging others to lie under oath, allowing others to lie and tricking others to give inaccurate testimony.

However, in the preambles to the specific charges they assert that these acts are significant because they amounted to "impeding the administration of justice" in violation of his duty to enforce the law.

I think it is a slam dunk to assert that Trump impeded the administration of justice himself by sacking Comey while he is conducting an investigation.

did you have to send your slide to him or does he have a 6H template?

He based the design on the 6H he played.

I have known Dave since we were in lab bands at then-NTSU in the late 70's.

Great player and a great guy!
