You may have personalized my response. Wasn't questioning your personal beliefs, believe what you want to believe and that's ok by me.
You did quote me and write a reply though so I read it and re-read your first response. You did say object, but you also state it wasn't made by humans and resembled something from fictional games and movies about aliens. What struck me about the rest is that confronted by something new and unfamiliar the conclusion is it must be alien because nothing else appears to make sense. For myself, I read some of these descriptions and think VTOL has been available for aircraft for decades, I bet they've advanced it some in that time. Drones still bug the fuck out of me, the way they move is very foreign, or is it alien? They can perform some odd movements. I also think, was this before drones, or before we knew about drones? University courses provide a framework for how things work; experience tells you how those things work IRL. You used to trip balls and your own boys thought this was an extension of that. They must know you better than I so I'll have to trust their judgment. No one would answer their door for you to discuss this. I look at this and say this dude may have been tripping balls, maybe someone dosed him, he thinks he sees UFOs, maybe he thinks helicopters are following him too, he's dragging his fam out into the street to see this making a scene and his fam and the neighbors are staring at him in disbelief. Afterward no one is trying to open their door for dude because he's obviously going through some things in the moment.
I'm floating different perspectives here.
Word , you ok ?
I don’t have it all figured out so ill be sure to be careful when i press the quote button

UFO does not equal alien, it equals we don't know (or claim not to know) what that is/was. Shit like the SR71 Blackbird or the B-2 Stealth were identified as UFOs by unsuspecting citizens before we knew what they really were.
Word . You’re right , it’s why I used the term
“object” . If what we saw is in fact secret government technology/experimentation - our sciences are on some serious Star Wars level type ish . Ima stick to what I saw with my own eyes , it wasn’t a flash or a fleeting moment - the fucken thing hovered in place and zipped around like a sci-fi flick for a cool min . If it was manned by a human , the next world
war is going to be seriously fucked . Government or alien , I’d be surprised (to say the least) if I saw it again in my lifetime .
The way it moved simply does not make sense , just the movement itself was enough to bring goosebumps . Completely shitted on all the stuff I learned in hs/uni physics courses . If they are what I think (hope) they are , I really hope they’re peaceful lol . Mars Attacks was dope n all but I’d prefer to keep that story in movie form
I believe !!

@luhemsounds a lot like what we saw. We were also sober. Did the one you saw disappear over the horizon or in to the distance? Ours didn’t dip over the horizon it just shot out “away”. Heavy co-sign on the maneuvers being surreal. When we saw it, was also many years before drones and cell phones. Was at the beach at night over the sea.. far out over the sea.
I was half asleep when I posted that & used the phrase “dipped into the horizon” .
We’re 10 minutes from the beach at my grandma’s and this was happening over regular suburban neighborhoods during the daytime - everything was crystal clear . I wish I had today’s cell phone to capture it , people would lose their shit . Galaxystarhiphop moment . It definitely went “away” , like the thing went toward the horizon but it did not disappear like a passenger plane going across the sky & out of eyeshot - you can say it went “in” to the distance . There was a stark difference between the thing and the helicopters (attempting) to follow , having those choppers there really highlighted the contrast between the movements : we could see the helicopters slowly disappear like normal - while the other thing pretty much vanished .
More : read the above post - Helicopters were Sheriff choppers for my sighting as well & the object was hovering , but moving around and changing directions in a specific area boxed in by the choppers (until it fled) . Closest thing I can compare it to is a hummingbird

I’ve seen something in the sky at night that moved across the sky in a way I’d never seen before and have never seen since. A friend and I saw it together and were both stunned. Moved in a way that would turn a human pilot into jelly.
wasn’t a satellite, wasn’t a planet, wasn’t a meteor, wasn’t an airplane. No idea what is was.
One day I was driving into my grandmas neighborhood and noticed a gathering of people in the street . Probably 5 houses full of families were outside on their driveways / the street pointing and staring at the horizon . The houses on the other side of the street had their views blocked by the trees . I saw two helicopters , so I pulled & over hopped then asked a neighbor wtf was going on . I’ll never forget how the guy just looked at me and pointed to the sky . It was something hovering up there (this is like 13 years ago so pre-drone)
I immediately felt a rush of adrenaline so l mashed it over to our house and screeched to a halt halfway up the driveway , ran inside and as I was coming in - our family dog ran out to the front steps and started freaking the fuck out . She never did that before . . I’ve never seen her react like that to anything , ever . I called my brother , he was in disbelief & then we called my pops to come outside . we stood on the steps and watched this fucking thing maneuver with velocities / directional change in ways that no man made ship could go . . Shit was like real life galaga . My bro and pops are the biggest unbelievers to this type of shit and their jaws were just dropped .
It was triangular shaped , with a constant pulsating light going the tip down to the two sides - purple to blue repeatedly . When it moved , the helicopters would reposition to try and keep it in their line of vision . Two fucking choppers and a good chunk of my
neighbors all saw this shit , plus my fam . to this day whenever freaky shit happens , I remind my bro and pops about this incident and they cannot deny what we all witnessed . after about 30 seconds watching it with them , it dipped into the horizon and the helicopters slowly followed behind and eventually disappeared too
the one thing I will never forget , is when it moved it gave you the creeps - it was fucking incredible . I’ve noticed the common theme between seeing this type of shit is the way the objects move . They don’t maneuver like human made ships , and I don’t think a human could survive bing inside something moving in that way . Being able to compare it to the helicopters was a mindfuck .
Once again this was all a decade+ before drones man . I’ve always thought that we aren’t the only ones here - my family used to call me an alien as a youngster cuz I was so into em lol We were all sober and I swear I feel like a kook explaining this but I wish we could have recorded it with cell phone cameras like we have today . I legit went back to that street where everyone was outside watching it , and NO ONE answered the door . I wanted to talk to them and find out what happened before I got there , but seriously no one fucken answered . I’ve told a few homies but my psychedelic usage at the time did not help my case lmao
they’re fucking out there fam !!!!!!!
RIP McCoy Tyner , he passed away last month
whole album goes , ballads are the best
this morning I learned iPhones log your last 200 calls
Major shoutout 2 california EDD customer service . that hold song will forever haunt me , guitar and flute duos will always be associated with unemployment here on out . Only took ~250 calls to get through to a human bean
Dude was really helpful tho can’t lie , explained everything to me properly and even called back and left a voicemail when our call got disconnected . Said itll take 3/4 weeks for the audit process instead of the usual 2 , and to keep certifying for benefits even if it shows $0.00 .
hopefully this the first and last time I gotta file for unemployment smh . got some sneakers I can flip to hold me over til then . feeling a lot better now !
working on sight reading these drill sheets w/ some new voicings :
Reason for doing this is to be able to read & play music on the fly . When you enter a session and the band leader/musical director hands you a chart you’ve never seen/played before - you’re able to sight read the music and play it with others on the spot . I filled each page with completely random chords , so technically an actual song would be easier since you can find the key the tune is in & then identify chord progressions (ii-V-I’s etc)
It’s pretty grueling but I’m gonna get it in this week starting today .
Just started Seinfeld for the first time last night
Up til now I’ve only ever watched bits and pieces of episodes
I think I’m gonna dig it
no problem ! @Fist 666i knew we had a jazz thread here , luckily our music subforum is only 3 pages deep . After scrolling up now I remember asking mr raven to help me with it
never heard of mammal hands , definitely knew about Gogo penguin (blue note France) . diggin their avant-garde / experimental vibes . Video for the mammal hands track is sick ! check out stuff from Eric Dolphy & Ornette Coleman (specifically their work in the free jazz movement)
imagine dropping a record on blue note . .
I’ve listened to this plenty , but this morning was the first time this year . Cannonball’s intro makes sense now more than ever
this song cheers me up when I’m down , I have played it multiples times this year to start my day off right
dope live version of a classic - with Ron carter on bass (legendary jazz bassist who played in miles Davis’ second great quintet)
Fun? fact : i always thought this song was about a woman , but Bobby hebb wrote this tune in the 48 hours after his brother was stabbed to death (same day JFK was assassinated) . He was determined to write this because he felt it was better to have a positive outlook on his life rather than living life with his head down . The tune is about his brother and best friend . Story goes he waited three years before recording it , and then it became a mega hit . Brutal story - turned things around into a triumph
knew we had one here , totally forgot about this thread !
imma start posting stuff I’m listening to in between study breaks , been working at the piano like crazy man . Rough first quarter this year but I’m getting back into the swing of things . hopefully yall dig some of these and others share as well ! I love this shit so much .
been rewatching mad mobster movies , love the music in em
here’s frank and duke to start
This guy is a fucken underrated G
Became blind at age 2 and then became a virtuoso
mans did a 21 min solo without stopping to take a breath dog . . . people swear if he stuck to one sax he would have been ultra legendary , but he had a dream to play two at once - did it , then did three .
edit : do we have a jazz thread ?! I know there was a bossa one but I’d be down to contribute to one dedicated to all of its subgenres . I’m gonna look and make one if I/someone hasn’t already I can’t remember lol
@KILZ FILLZPsure no one in LA county gets eagles games , there could be some eagles bar or something I’m unaware of but shits changed now since they moved the rams n chargers here . lots of rams/chargers fans now (completely understandable/makes sense)
I think my cuz had some NFL game pass subscription - I’m a bball head so I’m assuming it’s the equivalent of the NBA league pass where they have diff tiers available (either one team/every game or every team/every game for more $ type ish)
hotdudes.org (this is a legit stream page - I feel like the name has kept them under the radar lmao) would stream the most popular sporting competition at any given time on their site (usually USA sports) . Caught almost every nba game I wanted to watch on there so I’m gonna try again when this NFL season starts . they would choose between the more hyped option if there were two games at the same time iirc
If all else fails I would literally search “reddit nba stream” on google , and I eventually followed the trail to what I was looking for . I’ll do my due diligence when the season starts and seek out who’s running the best no bs NFL live stream - will share it here when I find it cuz I’m sure it’s out there just gotta dig a bit
Jackie mittoo - Musical director at studio one during its heyday
what the fuck lol , need to ask the doctors in the fam if they got manning family thank you cards . I wonder if they flip
raiders skipped town and I only rooted for em due to my pops being a LA Raiders fan . Most my fam are raiders/rams ppl but I aint joining the rams legion . Never switched teams before but I watched the eagles lose to the Seahawks at my cuzzo’s bedside before he passed a week later , gonna root for his team since here on out since he’s a diehard philly eagles fan .
was always hyped on desean Jackson , LB poly brejren and LA bred !
Gma let my lady and I stay here after some trouble I was in / save $ for the wedding [which was amazing] + future move . She’s overseas for pretty much the whole year these days so it’s worked out well for everyone involved . Been 2.5 years back , ready to dip !
found some gems while going through her old albums
Still got that piano , lost the cap
Yee - Jazz OG are a great silhouette , top 5 all time for me . Tend to stick to Nike/Saucony - got a pair of GL3’s but the rest of my collection are strictly sneakers from various skate companies I grew up on
These are my favorite in the collection , the “Sea & Sand” collabo w/ Anteater from Russia
Bummed I missed out on these perforated leather joints , I haven’t found any reviews of the leather quality but they dropped in 2 colorways (black / white) - would dig one of each when I can afford to buy sneakers again
lights out - in bed w/ wifey / dog / cat getting a serious fucken itch from browsing brick slayers
gonna work on something new starting tomorrow

Mb on the late reply , gonna spend more time here on the forums instead of Instagram for the next few months

1) been digging 70s runners and loving those tailwinds . *The mesh ones - nylon paneling just reminds me of old lady bra’s lol
2) on the saucony tip I saw these released in collaboration w/ lapstone & hammer . two colorways - hand done whip stitch on the toe . . so sick !
