Another F'n Podcast with Izzy Presley: Episode #73

Another F'n Podcast With Izzy Presley (Graphic)

Each and every week at about this time (give or take a day) and whether you want us to or not, TATSOL is proud to bring you...not so live, direct from someplace in Hollywood, California...the latest episode of Another F'n Podcast with Izzy Presley! Episode #73 is now available for your listening pleasure!

This week!

Jeff "The Great Bobboo" Bauer joins in via el telephono this week to talk Jordy Nelson and the fantasy implications along with the crying in Green Bay. It is coming up on Fall rather quickly now, the signs are all around us, so...Yay football! Go team!

Then! Unfortunately, this weeks scheduled guest, guitarist Alex Kane, had to reschedule at the last minute. Izzy takes the opportunity to talk about some topics that will be of interest to some of your rock and roll people out there, including the developments within the Guns N Roses circle that you may have heard or read about recently - Slash and Axl are once again on speaking terms it seems - and why we need to STOP the speculation and just let it play out. Along these lines, Izzy digs into his audio archive to play a clip from his Rockin 101 days. Duff McKagan was the interviewee back in 2011(?). He discusses the R&R Hall Of Fame and if he himself ever wanted to play with Guns N Roses maybe even just one more time.

So push that play button and let's get to it!

Scene On The Street: 08/15/15 Cheapo Records - On The Move! - Minneapolis, MN

Following recent reports of something we first mentioned (as a highly likely possibility) all the way back in July 2013, the Uptown Minneapolis Cheapo Records store is indeed about to move. Actually, they are already in the process of doing so. Currently located at 1300 West Lake Street, the store is one of the last of its kind pretty much anyplace, a warehouse sized Mecca for music lovers where you can get all the CD, vinyl, cassette, DVD, VHS, laser discs...pretty much whatever you need. They even sell some 8-tracks. And with this kind of place, as you'd expect after reading that description, it's not limited to just current release stuff - Cheapo is the place for deep, deep catalog. You never know what you might stumble across in one of the "Recent Arrivals" bins.

But time marches on. And real estate values increase. So the parcel of land the current one-story (with basement) building sits on has become prime property where multi-level use would be much more profitable. One would assume in a year or two there will be a five or seven story mixed-use shopping/residential building sitting on the site of this hallowed musical ground.

I really hate change. But at least they're not closing up shop and disappearing into the abyss, never to be heard from again. This store is one of my very favorite places and has been for a long, long time. I love Cheapo and I'm going to miss going to this particular store. Knowing time at the current location is short, we made a trip there this past weekend.  I guess this might have been one of, if not the last trip I make there. Anyone got a tissue? {sniff!} Of course I couldn't leave empty handed. The Gorgeous One and I browsed for almost an hour before choosing a few things to add to our  home audio and video libraries. The guy I spoke to as I paid for a few vinyl purchases said that in a few weeks they would likely have both locations open for a short time as they continued to empty out the current store move into the new one, once enough inventory has been moved there to do so.

As noted in the front windows currently, they are already packing up the store and moving the contents, beginning with vinyl, to their new location at 2600 Nicollet Avenue South.

So I guess I can look forward to checking out their new pad when they open up shop there soon. I'm sure it will be very nice. And I'm sure they will still have a great selection and stock of all kinds of music.

But, I fear, somehow it just won't be the same.

Scene On The Street: 08/08/15 U.S. Bank Stadium Construction, Downtown Minneapolis, MN

Back on Saturday 08/08, we had a reason to find ourselves driving downtown in Minneapolis, right next to the still-under construction waste of publicly financed money and pitifully named U.S. Bank Stadium, which, upon completion at some future time (I don't know when, maybe next year? I really don't pay attention to these things.) will be the new home to the Minnesota Vikings Football losers team. Yay! Whatever.

Personally, I still wish the Vikings had held good on their promise "to leave the state," issued some years back when they were fighting to get some additional public funding for this abysmal looking P.O.S. It's kind of too bad I wasn't actually able to get some shots from the south looking north, you can see what an ugly effect the construction is having on the Minneapolis skyline. Sad.

But anyway, for those of you who do care who throws a ball and how far and how often...here's some exclusive, up-close under construction shots of where they will be doing it here in the Twin Cities in the not so distant future.

Above, the scene inside the doors to legendary Minneapolis music room First Avenue on what would usually have most likely been a been a very busy Saturday night. Closed up tight. That, due to this crazy incident, occurring earlier in the week:

The folks at First Avenue hope to be up and running again a.s.a.p.
