Keith Richards

“Whatcha reading?” says Spence.

“Life,” says Admin. “The new Keith Richards autobiography.”

“How is it?”

“Way better than I expected. And the parts where he talks – and the whole thing does have a conversational tone – about music are really terrific. The story of him, Brian Jones and Mick Jagger living in a squalid apartment in Chelsea and listening to records of Jimmy Reed, Muddy Waters, Howlin’ Wolf and all those guys 24/7, taking it all apart and putting it back together, living on practically nothing but a love for music, is mesmerizing.”

“And the not so good parts?”

“That would be all the stuff about drugs. It’s tedious. And the beginning – this not very credible or creditable scene of a drug bust in Arkansas in the ’70’s – is really misconceived. Where was the editor? If you’re going to read it, skip right to chapter two, Keith’s boyhood in a crummy town near London.”

“I always liked that song You Got The Silver – Keith sings that?”

“Yeah. It’s amazing how … soul, no other word for it, can overcome the lack of a great voice when it comes to singing.”

“Don’t ¬†you try.”

Admin laughs. Spence laughs, too. Hey! They’re getting along.

    I was wondering how that bio was.

    Good morning Chet, Spence, Admin and everyone.

    Okay – so Soul can overcome the lack of a great voice in singing.

    Okay again – great pitching trumps over great hitting in baseball.

    What words of wisdom will be next?

    We heard that Keith Richards does not have anything good to say about Mick.

    When is the next game?

  7. Staff
    5:33 am on October 28th, 2010

    Barb and Maggie,

    The next game is tonight. I will be at quilt camp. I wonder if they have a radio there? Maybe I can bring one.

    Most of those quilters are NOT interested in sports. They just laugh at me during the Tour de France.

    Rio: Were you describing what you were doing in the grass at that moment?

  9. Sam
    5:46 am on October 28th, 2010

    Staff, do your quilters chow down like Wookie's group does? I'm wondering how strenuous this quilting sport is. Do you take special sports drinks?

  10. Wölfie Wigglebu
    5:53 am on October 28th, 2010

    Bee – I think that Rio is referring to a character from the A. A. Milne series. (Which Mom absolutely loves, by the way.)

    Wasn't Keith Richards the guy with all the conquests? Or am I thinking about Mick?

    Staff, you may be surprised by how many Giants fans will be at the retreat!

  11. Wölfie Wigglebu
    5:55 am on October 28th, 2010

    The next game is tonight, in the beautiful city by the bay.

    Macy – when is the party? Are you going to have this catered or will it be a potluck?

  12. Sam
    6:01 am on October 28th, 2010

    Staff, what about your quilt testers, A-Kat and Ms. Johnson? Are you just galloping off into the sunset without them?

  13. Staff
    6:02 am on October 28th, 2010

    Wookie,

    Well the quilter's here do tend to eat a lot. We have a snack table set up at the camp (even though they make us all the meals).

    The snack table is so full that things fall off it fairly often. Really we need two tables, or a hungry dog, to keep it neat and clean.

    For some reason I have never seen a dog there although kitties do hang around the kitchen's outside door.

    I am sure you did a superb job herding the quilters. Abbie really wants to come so she can test the quilts, but she has to stay with Mr Staff. She has a lap job to complete during the ballgames and she can not shirk it.

    I hope the Rangers do better tonight. I really hope it is a good series and not a walk over like all those boring Super Bowls.

    Keith Richards…The most elegantly wasted human being in the world. I don't know who said that first, but it wasn't me. Mom said she always preferred Keith Richards to the rooster.

    No more black beards for sale, all sold out for the game or Halloween.

    I can hear a "who cares" coming from Macy…

  25. Siber-H
    7:08 am on October 28th, 2010

    Mom says that Black Beard is a pretty good looking guy minus the beard. Whatever

  26. Mollie (a black pood
    7:09 am on October 28th, 2010

    Yes, he is, they showed a picture on TV of him without the beard.

  27. Siber-H
    7:13 am on October 28th, 2010

    We saw that and my mom saw a few on the Giants website. She looked, can you believe that. I mean, it is a ballgame. I don't care what he looks like, but I respect his pitching.

  28. Riö - The Evil
    7:32 am on October 28th, 2010

    Now!… Now miss Molly pipes up about her team…snort!….Where were you last night missy?…. grump!

  29. B.Stover
    7:41 am on October 28th, 2010

    Why doesn't anyone discuss last night's game? For example, why were there 12 pitchers? Why were there 6 errors?

  30. Mollie (a black pood
    7:45 am on October 28th, 2010

    Rio:If you check the posts you will find out I was there. My voice is very whispery though, you may have missed it.

  31. BARB & MAGGIE
    7:47 am on October 28th, 2010

    Black beard must die his beard, because it looks several shades darker than his hair. What's up with that?

  32. Siber-H
    7:50 am on October 28th, 2010

    There were 12 pitchers because the batters kept getting hits off of all the pitchers. When that happens, the manager will take out the pitcher and put a new relief pitcher in. For example, the starting pitchers didn't do as well as expected, so the managers took them out.

    I suppose there were 6 errors because of nerves. They can talk about how confident the players are and all that, but they have got to be nervous. I would be nervous being in a World Series.

  33. Mollie (a black pood
    7:58 am on October 28th, 2010

    Black Beard says he does not dye it, but we all know he does. Probably he does it to hopefully scare the batters a little.

  34. Siber-H
    7:59 am on October 28th, 2010

    Barb&Maggie, Black beard does die his beard. He does it to intimidate the batters. On some level, it probably helps. He is really good at giving the batters "the look".

  35. Mollie (a black pood
    8:00 am on October 28th, 2010

    Siber-H: I waited for you to ans. that, but not long enough.

  36. Siber-H
    8:01 am on October 28th, 2010

    I agree, Molllie (APB) He has to dye his beard, or have it professionally done, hee hee

    8:13 am on October 28th, 2010

    Hey!…Min Pin and I were talking about the game as it was happening, but all the Giants fans were missing for the most part…snort!…You can talk about his stupid beard all you want thats not going to matter at all when the Giants get squashed tonight…heh!

    Rio – I was on for most of last night's game. Mom turned the game on late and we always go to bed early, but you liked my O'Day song.

    I'm not really a Giants fan, I just want to root against the Rangers.

  41. Riö - The Evil
    8:30 am on October 28th, 2010

    Nancy!…Talking crap is part of the fun for me Nan!…heh! …Get with it girlie! …grunt!…Did you have something to say AbbietheKat??…wheeze!

  42. B.Stover
    8:45 am on October 28th, 2010

    I know the technical reasons for having 12 pitchers. My question is what are the reasons for not pitching well?

  43. BARB & MAGGIE
    8:56 am on October 28th, 2010

    Oh, and we meant dye, not die. hee hee

  44. Riö - The Evil
    9:00 am on October 28th, 2010

    Reasons!…If you are talking about a pitcher like Cliff Lee who suddenly isn’t doing as well as he has before. That probably comes down to a mental problem….snort!…Physically he has the ability, but something is messing with his head… grunt!….Nerves, pressure all sorts of things affect pitchers. They are human after all…sniff!

  45. Siber-H
    9:00 am on October 28th, 2010

    I will take a stab at this and someone else can help me out. To pitch well is a very difficult thing to do. They have "off" days, they get nervous, and they have injuries. There are days when everything is going right for the pitcher and they are throwing the ball where they want it to go. There are days when that doesn't happen no matter how good the pitcher is. I would not want to be a pitcher. The stress would be too great. The outcome of the ballgame is basically on their shoulders. Watch their faces when they are pitching…they are tense. A batter is tense when he comes to the plate to hit, but the poor pitcher is there on the mound throwing ball after ball. No matter how great a player is, they can't be great all the time. That is just the nature of baseball.

  46. Mollypop
    9:13 am on October 28th, 2010

    Mom's granddaughter is a softball pitcher – fast pitch. We go to games, take pictures, and leave. Mom says if she stays, she will have to start sniffing glue. (from the Airplane movie)

  47. Riö - The Evil
    9:17 am on October 28th, 2010

    SiberH!…Good answer!…snort!… There was no mention of Cliff Lee not feeling tip-top or having an injury so my guess it was the intense pressure to live up to all the hype and of course World Series first game nerves…grunt!… I’m really hoping he will get another chance to pitch in this series….sneeze!… He has to prove Spencer's hypothesis…heh!

  48. Gus and BooBear
    9:18 am on October 28th, 2010

    Which SF pitcher is considered Black Beard? At least 2 of the SF relief guys had black beards.

    Rio, we should be home for all the game tonight instead of the last three innings so we will try to help post the Rangers on!

    Did anyone else think that SF starting pitcher looked NOTHING like a professional baseball player? He looked like he should have spent his youth playing video games and never seeing the light of day.

    We have a preliminary map done but want to tweek it before we try to post it. Hopefully, Kirby will beat us to it because we're sure his will be better.

  49. Siber-H
    9:29 am on October 28th, 2010

    I agree about Cliff Lee, Rio. The pressure would have been intense. I would have croaked from it.

    Gus and Boo Bear, yes, SF has two pitchers with black beards but the one Mollie and I were talking about is Brian Wilson. The starting pitcher for SF you mentioned…his nickname is "The Freak". You can see why. I don't think he looks like a baseball pitcher either, but he has grown on me.

  50. Gus and BooBear
    9:32 am on October 28th, 2010

    Whew! Just checked last night late posts and see that KirbyT is on the map project. Can't wait to see how fantastic his looks when he's done.

    Go Rangers!

  51. Siber-H
    9:36 am on October 28th, 2010

    My mom is shutting me down now. She has to go take a friend for a medical test. She hopes she will make it back for the start of the game, but she has made my dad promise to turn on the tv for me for the game, but no computer till she gets home. blah, blah, blah

    GO RANGERS!!!

  52. B.Stover
    9:39 am on October 28th, 2010

    I think Linecum (don't know how to spell his name–SF starting pitcher) is cool–as a pitcher and the way he looks–literally and metaphorically.

    As an "outsider" it seemed to me that the Giants pitcher started out up-tight but calmed down as the game went on before he was replaced. The Rangers pitcher (starting pitcher in both cases) was calm at the beginning (possibly even arrogant?) and then became more and more uptight as the game went on.

    It seems to me that Spence's hypothesis was proven last night. They weren't pitching well so they were hitting a lot–the reason for the high score.

    Thanks everyone for the answers.

    10:52 am on October 28th, 2010

    Good Morning all!

    I see that Riö is in a post-game frumpy mood. Still games to go, your Pugginess!

    If Black Beard wants to intimidate the opposing team, he should do what the Real Pirate Blackbeard did and light his parts of his beard on fire.

    Wonder how he did that anyway? Wax part of his beard and hope that would keep the fire happy. I mean it wouldn't do to have a Pirate King go, "Oh, Crap!" right when he's brandishing his sword.

  55. Melanie
    10:58 am on October 28th, 2010

    Grace is fine! Still a little infection, so more antibiotics. There was a cock-a-poo who took a dislike to Grace as we walked in. Grace looked at me and said, "What is that thing's problem?" She then sat with me on the seat. The cock-a-poo went nuts because Grace wouldn't fight. The owner did nothing except say, "Isn't that cute?"

    My thought was, "Don't let him loose, because Grace will put her paw on his head." Oh, wait that was Pepper who did that to someone we know, right?

    Anyhoo, while we were in the consulting room, someone brought a parrot into the waiting room. He was talking up a storm. His name was Peter. Grace looked at the door, and got on the floor to see if she could see or smell what was making that weird noise. When it was time to leave, Grace wouldn't leave the room. She made me go first.

    No talking birds for that girl! Turns out Peter was over 47 years old. Looked very healthy and happy.

    11:45 am on October 28th, 2010

    Stover — Regarding Lincecum, there has been a lot written about his physique, which is not necessarily that typical for a pitcher with his speed and overall pitching ability. It largely started with an article in the July 8, 2008 issue of Sports Illustrated (Lincecum was actually on the cover of Sports Illustrated that issue, and notwithstanding the persistent urban myth about the curse of appearing on the cover of Sports Illustrated, it didn't seem to do him any harm.) I don't remember all the details, but it got into the physics of how a pitch is thrown, the effects of throwing various types of pitches on the arm of the pitcher (and how that would affect his career, in terms of likely duration), with the article concluding that Lincecum had such a unique physique that he could fundamentally re-define how pitchers should be for the future. If you do Google Lincecum you can probably find other similar articles that deal with the physics of pitching (your Isotope friend may find that of interest as well), but the bottom line is that there is much more to being an effective pitcher than just throwing the ball hard, and there is a considerable amount of "science" that has now been applied to understanding pitching techniques. This may be way more than your ever wanted to know, but then again you may find it quite fascinating. Wookie

    Wookie: That is interesting. Thank you. I'll look into him more. During one of the baseball games I watched, the announcer said that his team mates say he is unshockable…I think that's the word that was used.

  59. Riö - The Evil
    12:33 pm on October 28th, 2010

    Lincecum!… I heard during one of the games that his dad taught him his pitching style starting at 4 years old….snort! … Interesting guy, but I don’t want to see him again this series…heh!

    The first two years that we lived here, we had 9 trick or treaters. Then it was reduced to 5, then 3, then 1. For the last 3 years, I have waited in vain for any T or T's to come to my door. Or anyone else on the block! Nada, no one.

    I don't even dress up like a bed bug to scare children. I used to have a weird hat that had an owl's head on it that I wore, but no more. The Pack has always been sound asleep. I guess our neighborhood (all 8 houses) has gotten old. Bummer.

    Guess Lincecum is alot like michael phelps and swimming. They did studies on his body and determined he had the perfect proportions and arm length for the sport. We just meant that if he approached a girl at a bar and told her he was a pitcher for the Giants, she would go "Right……….."

    A certain Mop is kind of spunky tonight.

    I think the Iditarod necklaces are a good idea. Racers need all the help they can get. I want me some of those cute booties they wear.

    Yep, he is pitching a good game. He seems more relaxed than Cliff Lee last night. Not that I am blaming Lee because I would have run howling in the opposite direction with the pressure Lee was under.

  99. B.Stover
    4:49 pm on October 28th, 2010

    Water water everywhere nor any drop to drink.

  100. B.Stover
    4:49 pm on October 28th, 2010

    That was a very good catch by Giants 12.

    Macy – who cares.

  102. Riö - The Evil
    4:57 pm on October 28th, 2010

    Heh!…Who would’ve thought that Stover would be the one true Giants fan of the evening…snort!… Maybe you should call it a night Stover. Ever since you started rooting for the Giants they have been winning…grunt!…You even disabled the mighty Cliff Lee’s power last night… sniff!… Go to bed Stover! Please!…sneeze!.. I’m Begging You!

  103. B.Stover

    Rio: No.

    No!….The dreaded blister!…crap!… Now the wonderful CJ Wilson has fallen…snort!…Min Pin what is the next pitcher like?… Good grief the Rangers are going through pitchers like shit through a goose….dammit!…I hate geese and gooses…sniff!

  106. Siber-H
    5:05 pm on October 28th, 2010

    I think Stover is getting sleepy.

  107. B.Stover
    5:07 pm on October 28th, 2010

    SH: No she isn't. (Remember, Rio wanted me to watch baseball.)

  108. B.Stover
    5:08 pm on October 28th, 2010

    HEH!

  109. Wolfie Wigglebutt
    5:08 pm on October 28th, 2010

    Woo woo, Wolfie is finally here. Mom had to go to the doctor tonight so she got home late again. Drat!

    Macy – I don't understand the hand pictures. Am I missing something?

    2-0 Giants!!! Yea!!!!

    Where is everybody?

  110. Riö - The Evil
    5:09 pm on October 28th, 2010

    Hmmm… I think I got my answer regarding the pitcher….grunt!

  111. Wolfie Wigglebutt
    5:10 pm on October 28th, 2010

    Good for you, Bee. We need you!!!!

  112. Riö - The Evil
    5:11 pm on October 28th, 2010

    Wolfie!…Your Giant peers consist of Stover…grunt!

  113. Mollypop
    5:14 pm on October 28th, 2010

    I'm surprised that the pitcher got a blister. I thought they had protection against that.

  114. Riö - The Evil
    5:14 pm on October 28th, 2010

    Rangers!….Lets Go Rangers!… snort! snort!… We need some Runs!….Wooooo!…It’s the World Series for Pete’s Sake!…dammit!

    YES!…Andrus steals second base!….nice! …Young at bat – good chance the Rangers can tie the game ….gruff!

    NOPE!

    We had a power outage here. Lights just came back on. Hooray the Giants are ahead!!! B.Stover is a charm. No Macy, of course I do not dye my hair. It is naturally sun steaked blonde. Go Giants!

  117. Macy the Min-Pin
    5:34 pm on October 28th, 2010

    APB, I thought you were a black poodle? Did you get your hair did? I am thinking about going red for Christmas.

    I did not even get a chance to sing to O'Day. Rats. Still not drinking the Kool-Aid, but getting out the sugar. We will surely do better at home.

    Polly–who cares.

    The hand pictures are our specialty, the claw and the antlers. It started with the players giving each other these signs for good play. The antlers are for speed the claw for power. The shirt mom is wearing has the championship logo plus the claw and antlers.

  119. Riö - The Evil
    5:39 pm on October 28th, 2010

    Huh!….Sun streaked blonde??…grunt!

  120. Macy the Min-Pin
    5:40 pm on October 28th, 2010

    Time to break open a new box of pitchers.

  121. Mollie (a black pood
    5:42 pm on October 28th, 2010

    Sorry, I was thinking of Mom, I am still black.

  122. B.Stover
    5:45 pm on October 28th, 2010

    Eleven balls in a row….Is that a record? You have to feel sorry for the guy.

  123. Mollie (a black pood
    5:46 pm on October 28th, 2010

    Buster Posey was voted Outstandig Rookie in the NL., and I don't want to hear any "who cares" because everyone loves Buster Posey…

  124. Riö - The Evil
    5:47 pm on October 28th, 2010

    Slump!…. 12 walks in a row, really?….snuff!…That is very bad pitching, my gawd….grunt!…I don’t think I’ve EVER seen my Rockies pitchers do that!…grump!…Min Pin, do you guys have any pitchers left???…sigh.

  125. Macy the Min-Pin
    5:47 pm on October 28th, 2010

    Whew Mollie, I was concerned that you had gone and gotten all poodled up.

    I am about ready to throw in the towel. Why didn't Wash pull Holland before he completely wrecked the game? I am getting all Pinned up. Mom has to be at the Big Orange Box at 6 am, we are beginning to think that this game is not worth being tired tomorrow for. hmph.

  126. Siber-H
    5:48 pm on October 28th, 2010

    Poor Holland…he is young and and seems struck dumb with fear. I feel for those guys.

  127. Riö - The Evil
    5:49 pm on October 28th, 2010

    13 Balls!…In a row with some walks thrown in, excuse me…snort!

  128. Macy the Min-Pin
    5:50 pm on October 28th, 2010

    I vote we get Nolan out there. I don't think he would do much worse. Our favorite pitcher has not gotten to pitch. Dustin Nippert #57 which is mom's favorite number for some reason.

  129. Macy the Min-Pin
    5:52 pm on October 28th, 2010

    History in the making, not the kind we really want to be known for. Aw crap, we are going to bed, this just bites.

  130. Riö - The Evil
    5:52 pm on October 28th, 2010

    Yeeep!… The Giants are just begging to make it 7 or 8 to Nuthing…agh! …Is Stover still watching?…gulp!

  131. B.Stover
    5:57 pm on October 28th, 2010

    Yes I am Rio.

  132. Siber-H
    6:01 pm on October 28th, 2010

    I'm going outside to pee then I am burying my head in the sand, of which there is no shortage around here.

  133. Mollie (a black pood
    6:02 pm on October 28th, 2010

    Wow, I can't believe it, I thought maybe the Rangers would win today…Goooo giants. Woooooooo Wooooooo

    Bee, Keep watching…

  134. Wolfie Wigglebutt
    6:03 pm on October 28th, 2010

    Honestly, this is downright pathetic. I am cringing.

    I thought we were going to watch a baseball game, not a – hump – I don't know what to call this.

  135. Wolfie Wigglebutt
    6:05 pm on October 28th, 2010

    Bee – I know you have magical Giant Power, but maybe you should tone it down just a little. This is embarrassing the poor Rockettes.

    (Maybe you can allow them a token run. After all, this is the World Series.)

  136. Riö - The Evil
    6:10 pm on October 28th, 2010

    Wolfie!…The Rangers still have a whole inning to go!…snort!…Anything can happen in baseball, don't you know?…heh!..Well, almost anything.

  137. B.Stover
    6:16 pm on October 28th, 2010

    Go Giants. I'd say they went.

  138. Riö - The Evil
    6:16 pm on October 28th, 2010

    Nighttime come and me wan' go home

    Come mister tally man tally me bananas

    Texas is broken I wanna go home…sob!

  139. Riö - The Evil
    6:17 pm on October 28th, 2010

    Stover!…Goodnight!

  140. Mollie (a black pood
    6:28 pm on October 28th, 2010

    We will see what the next game will bring…

  141. Wolfie Wigglebutt
    6:28 pm on October 28th, 2010

    Bee, the next game isn't until Saturday. That will give you enough time to practice your Magical Giant Power. You really got carried away in the eight inning. Not that I'm complaining, but I can think of someone who will, I mean, might possibly, complain. (Awkward sentence structure is intentional. Just because.)

    I think that your Magical Power is a little like blurring. When I first started blurring I got carried away and blurred myself all the way to Venus. Now, that was wild! You are doing a great job, it needs to be toned down just a smidge.

    Hopefully, on Saturday, we'll only win by one or two points.

  142. Macy the Min-Pin
    8:21 pm on October 29th, 2010

    Or not.
