@DoubleUp4Life

The band was the Light Crust Doughboys which featured Bob Wills and Milton Brown, both of whom would eventually start their own bands.  Milton Brown grabbed the finer musicians and made some hotter, jazzier recordings.  Bob Wills recorded more mid-tempo dance tunes.  Wills was more famous, possibly because Brown died in a car crash at the age of 32 in 1936.

DU4L, if you would like some more western swing recommendations, just PM me.

Agreed DoubleUp, Richard Dreyfuss is great in Let it Ride. I also recommend another underrated but fantastic gambling movie "Owning Mahowny." based on a real life incident in 1982, Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce clerk Brian Molony embezzled over $10 million from his employers in just 18 months to support his gambling habit. The late Philip Seymour Hoffman is great in it as well as John Hurt. Highly recommend it!

Nick the Greek: King of the Gamblers by Cy Rice is a fascinating biography of a legendary gambler who made a fortune at the track as a laddie in Montreal, Canada by betting on every horse and staggering the amounts...it took the track linemakers a year before they caught onto him but it cost them a cool million dollars in the meantime. 

Nick 'the Greek' Dandolos (not Jimmy the Greek) hung out with with mob guys like Al Capone and Arnold Rothstein, Dutch Shultz etc....and other movers and shakers across the world. One of his favorite fictional works, 'The Gambler' by Dostoevsky is one of mine also. He was a student of philosophy, great literature, poetry, and art...much to the wonderment of the tough guys he hung out with. 

I visited his grave-site when I lived in Vegas...he is buried at Woodlawn Cemetery (1500 N. Las Vegas Blvd.) at first he only had a plain marker but a Dandolos admirer from Chicago visited his grave and said 'gee, is that all he has' and he paid for a big tombstone to mark his resting place...this story I got from an onsite cemetery worker.

On his gravestone is his name and dates with the words 'gambler and sage' and two die with an eleven showing. Wondering why a died in the wool don't bettor like Dandolos wouldn't show a 7 as once the point is established the 7 is the money maker for dark side bettors. 

Here is the link to his biography: https://www.amazon.com/Nick-Greek-Gamblers-Cy-Rice/dp/B0006DXFD0

The NFL can ask all they want...getting it is another thing when viewer ratings are tanking. ESPN already turned the NFL down when they broached the subject. Unless the NFL gets bribe money from Red China, the team caps are coming down...simply a matter of fact as the networks are losing their big money sponsors. 

Your critical race theory agenda is going to tank also...Black males only makeup 6.5% of the population so when the SHTF YOU better lay low my dusky and low IQ cousin.

A New Orleans' video of a mostly Japanese jazz band...they are playing the music of Charles 'Buddy' Bolden (some say he was the Father of jazz). Typically I am not a fan of jazz fan, though God help me, I have tried but I do love this sound. 

It was said that there were many fine bands but Buddy's band always shut them down. There is a fascinating and well written biography (fictionalized meditation) on Bolden's life that I read 40 years ago titled 'Coming Through Slaughter' by Michael Ondaatje. The author pieces together what he could find and IMO he wrote a masterpiece.

The team NFL cap has been reduced down to 182.5 million per year (15.7 million down from 2020)...more good news for the continuing defunding of this corrupted and bribed league.

They're already talking about 100% at BILLS stadium next season ..

CAP will go back up in 2022 

Like it or not the NFL is America's #1 sport ( and it's not even close ) ..

You could always switch over to futbol ..Difficult to beat 45 minutes straight if action

The coming worldwide economic meltdown will take care of the NFL attendance numbers and the mass exodus of network sponsors is sure to hit home:

When the government can print as many dollars as it likes, it has the ability to impose an “inflation tax.”

In what way is inflation a tax?

When the government prints money, prices rise. When prices rise, money loses value. For example, if a tank of gas costs $20, then the $20 bill in your pocket is worth a tank of gas. If the price of gas rises so now a tank costs $30, then the $20 bill in your pocket is only worth two-thirds of a tank of gas. The increase in the price of gas caused the money in your pocket to lose value.

This is not only true for the money in your pocket; it is also true for the money in your bank account. If the government can print money to buy stuff and in so doing cause prices to rise, the resulting increase in prices causes money you own to lose value. The government has effectively taxed you to pay for the stuff it bought.

Aside from the paltry $1400, what it bought is not going to help the American people who are suffering financially. 

As Malcolm rightly said after JFK got a bullet in his head for trying to save the soul of America: "The chickens have come home to roost"...as an old country boy myself I know that if you sit under the place where chickens roost, something will fall from the heavens and it won't be bread.

We don't get along because you lobby to censor all threads that you disagree with. You mention politics all of the time in your threads and Trump bash whenever you can which is your right. When I respond, you wish to silence me. 

A possible solution for you is to not click on any of my threads...why even go there if I upset you so much? 

You are the one who called Dr. Ben Carson an Uncle Tom...I just quoted Malcolm X because I find that more times than not, he spoke the truth, unlike you.

As far as your charge of race baiting goes, this is classical projection...you are projecting off on me that racial hatred that is deeply rooted in your soul.

Ben Carson is scum ..

I liked Malcolm X much better after he came back from Mecca and dropped the Hate Whitey BS ...He probably would have made for a good leader then , but too many people wanted him dead then ...Nation of Islam for exposing Elijah Muhammad impregnating young girls,  FBI , Local law enforcement etc ...

The California premiere of Spike Lee's film 'Malcolm X' was in Orange, California in 1992 and I saw it with my Mother (wheel chair and all)...it is an epic movie and a masterpiece IMO. In many ways it is easily Denzel's finest role.

The 'Autobiography of Malcolm X' is one of the best I have ever read...it is a collaborative work involving Alex Haley. I have never known a person go through so many dramatic changes in life as he did...

I think if that movie and Malcolm X's life taught us anything at all, it is that there are as many differing views and opinions in the Black community as there are in any group. I am disappointed that you and your pal don't understand that...

Trump is a racist??? 'you know them by their works and not their words'...Just because Bernie 'the talking socialist' Sanders says Trump is a sexist, racist, and xenophobe doesn't make it so. 

Jim Brown who has been considered the ultimate Black alpha male in my lifetime doesn't share your view that Trump is a racist...nor does Mike Tyson. Are they scum too? How about King's niece who supported Trump? How about Kimberly Klacik ??? I would vote for her for president...of course I am in lubba with her. cool

In my life, I have held many different views...I no longer view the world as I did as a child or young adult or middle aged adult.
This current pack of psychopaths who seized power are currently destroying Amerika and some of you guys put your heads in the sand and call it peace...So be it...
