Damnit. Guess we have to call a do-over and find another theme for the residency.

From Texas Parks and Wildlife game warden field notes:

A Rockwall County game warden responded to a call from a local law enforcement officer about a traffic stop involving three subjects that had been driving the neighborhoods shooting rabbits from a public roadway. When the warden arrived on scene, he found three young men standing around a truck with a bed full of dead rabbits. One young man was only wearing a trucker hat, boots, and some brightly colored underwear. The subjects said they had shot a skunk earlier in the evening and when the individual approached it, the skunk sprayed him. The others wouldn’t let him back in the truck with his clothes on. Citations pending.

Re: Boyd Tinsley-DMB

The dude always seemed strange, but whoa...

First he takes a "leave" from band to focus on family and health. Then this comes out the other day

-Accused of sexual misconduct allegations
https://consequenceofsound.net/2018/05/boyd-tinsley-misconduct-allegations/

And Now he has been officially given the Axe right before tour kicks off

https://consequenceofsound.net/2018/05/boyd-tinsely-dave-matthews-band-split/

It will be interesting how this goes being as he helped give DMB that distinctive sound, yet probably the most replaceable member.IMO. What he did in Tripping Billies was his mark and I felt like he just kind of repeated himself in a way after that. Too be fair DMB's music has shifted a bit since BTCS with less emphasis on the Violin. Along with Tim joining full time it kind of pushed him to the background.

Also to see how this effects DMB in the future. I know Dave has made changes throughout the yrs in the band and kept chugging along but I feel like they have just been floating by for yrs and have lost their step.
And now this.
They also have a new album dropping soon.

Also if anyone knew or remembered their was a big law suit thing with one his managers a few yrs back who basically accused Boyd of threatening him, giving him gifts, etc in efforts to keep his sexual encounters with other men that he lured with money, gifts, throughout the yrs quiet.
His manager was found guilty of "over charging" Boyd, but charges were reduced based on the facts of the threats he was under.



**so this has all gone by rather fast since the accusations came out. "Fired" almost immediate, name already gone from the official site, tour starts and they have brought on a keyboard player. No word on if Boyd will be replaced.

I think DMB would be fine without a violin on material from Busted stuff and up, but they would have to drop everything from their greatest yrs, otherwise they become the Best Dave Matthews Cover Band

As being a big fan esp from 1993-2002 0r so. I find this so Interesting, shocking and sad
...Dip a ladle for a taste of her creation...& she knew that what she made...
would be the Finest in the Nation....

I have a feeling that Boyd leaving the band was a sign that maybe they knew this was coming down the line...it happened right after they announced this latest tour so the timing was just weird.

I'd kind of agree. The violin was obviously key to a lot of tunes but it's not like Tinsley was doing anything that someone else couldn't pull off. Though, I certainly hope he's replaced since I'd hate to lose that aspect of their sound. Either way, I'll find out since I'm seeing them in a couple weeks.

Put in what you have left after getting all your 2018 Phish tickets. We can buy the Oh Kee Pa vacation house.

Purple driveway. People are too much.

^"Regulations being phased in six months after the state broadly legalized marijuana require that pot sold after Saturday meet strict quality standards"

Why do I get the feeling it's a bunch of potheads smoking shit and giving a thumb's up or thumb's down?

Apparently when DLR left Van Halen it was to make the most 80s movie ever conceived.

^ Without a subscription you can read three free articles a month from Wired. They have another good article about the worldwide consumption of sand for construction. So many things. Who can know it all?

I'm going to pick up the the $2995 cashmere stealie blanket to use at shows instead of an old tarp.

Federal Donuts makes the list, and so does my hometown's donut shop. Way to go Harvard...even though they initially credit Chicago.
Well, here we are, Mr. Pilgrim, trapped in the amber of this moment. There is no why.

^ Not so much messing with the environment as being a part of the environment and having an effect on it...which is probably what you were saying anyway.

How large a part of the environment?

Basically, yes. On a grander scale, what happens now isn't much different from the Earth's history. There's been like five or six "mass extinction" periods where environmental changes resulted in massive creature death, sometimes close to 80% of everything alive dying. I read one was caused by too many fish resulting in too much oxygen getting into the atmosphere which changed the chemical makeup of the air and basically everything that breathed the nitrogen-rich air died out. Others have occurred from mass volcano explosions having weird effects on things as well. And yet, after each extinction, new life sprung up that adapted to the new environment and life went on. It's happened every time.

So, what's happening now isn't unique. Folks believe we're in an extinction period now but these happen over thousands of years which is impossible for our short-term lives to grasp or fathom...we're always just worried about the next 20 years. But, it does have a sense of inevitability. We can complain about animal extinctions and climate change and all that but it's all the way of the Earth and there's nothing we'll be able to do about it. Humanity is just yet another silly era on this planet and we'll come and go like any other era.
