'Pogoing' was the kind of dance, according to Wikipedia.

Sounds like the beef was probably that pogoing was seen as a precursor to moshing.

They should just do the Punk Polka!
(always a favorite.)

JUMP JUMP JUMP JUMP UP AND DOWN IN PLACE!
JAB A SAFETY PIN INTO YOUR FACE!
EXCUSE ME WHILE I LEAVE THE HUMAN RANCE
TO DO THE PUNK POLKA!
(NYC is the biggest radio market in the world, and not a single f***ing station carried Dr. Demento. I really missed out.)

Hmm... jab or drive... burning questions require burning answers...

Punk polka sounds like it must have been Weird Al's inspiration

I'd like to thank Mr. Foobar for the fact that "Everybody wants to rule the world..." is going through my head right now.
[#] Mon Jul 16 2018 10:57:36 EDT from IGnatius T Foobar
You're welcome ... but I'm not sure exactly how I did that.

Tomaso Giovanni Albinoni... Super genius...
so I'm taking my youngest to the ACL Music Festival for her birthday. We've been adding artists to the interactive lineup for a while now, and they recently posted the interactive schedule. To add people to the schedule you have to go back to the artist page and click "add to schedule" for each one... and then there is an app for the phone, which has no way to logon, so if you want to use the app you have to enter everyone AGAIN. What a pain!

Poor user interface design... probably by someone who doesn't have to use it.

Pomplamoose combines the talents of Jack Conte and Nataly Dawn, both
of whom perform interesting works of popular styles of music.
Unfortunately, Jack Conte has been handling Patreon (I think he's the
CEO), so he hasn't been doing as much music, and this has slowed down
some of Pomplamoose's progress, but they still do some relatively quick
They just posted a video telling the story of what they've been up to. They moved to a new home, Conte is spending most of his time on Patreon, and they switched to a new style of doing one-off music videos (mostly covers and mashups) with some decent session musicians. They're done with Bust Your Kneecaps style pieces where the videos took a month to make, but they're making more videos and more music now.
It's not what it used to be, but it's decent. And compared to mainstream crud, very listenable.

Jury says that Zeppelin did not steal Stairway to Heaven.
Here is the song in the lawsuit.

Come on, everyone knows that Zeppelin was just a ripoff of Deep Purple.

Speaking of which, I'm in the market for guitar effects again ... my Line6 "Pocket Pod" has developed a noise problem that's making it unusable, and my old analog pedals sound like crap. I need something that is simple, versatile, and that won't break the bank.
Any recommendations? I haven't even started looking. I need a couple of basic effects ... some reverb, some chorus, a bit of compression, and enough distortion to be crunchy but not face-melting. The ability to switch between a couple of different presets using a pedal would be a big plus.
Standard disclaimer: I love playing my guitar but I'm not very good at it, so I'm not above using anything that would be a "crutch".

Don't know what your budget is, but you can look at the Line 6 big brother to the Pocket Pod, like the M5 Stompbox.... But if you want to step up your pedal game, look at the Boos GT-100.
[#] Mon Oct 01 2018 18:10:32 EDT from IGnatius T Foobar
The GT-100 looks sweet but I don't exactly have $600 burning a hole in my pocket right now.
