About big jonny

The man, the legend. The guy who started it all back in the Year of Our Lord Beer, 2000, with a couple of pages worth of idiotic ranting hardcoded on some random porn site that would host anything you uploaded, a book called HTML for Dummies (which was completely appropriate), a bad attitude (which hasn’t much changed), and a Dell desktop running Win95 with 64 mgs of ram and a six gig hard drive. Those were the days. Then he went to law school. Go figure. Flagstaff, Arizona, USA

  1. Yeah Big-J! I’ve always argued that jazz and punk share similar cultural and political roots. It’s amazing what happens when creative disenfranchised peoples let loose. Miles is a perfect example… nice post! Now where’d I put that beer.

  2. …beautiful…

    …my playlist ranges far & near & covers so many genres but i definitely have a couple a’ miles tunes on it…


  3. I read a Miles biography(might of been auto bio).When he went through his Bitches Brew period he toured with some rockers.He called Steve Miller “a no-playing motherfucker” which I always found appropriate after being force fed whatever that I’m a smoker I’m a toker tune is by FM radio back then. Anyway,check out my man Rahsaan http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jqXYAcVPDD4

  4. thanks made my day, Miles has been my favorite for always. My favorite scene is at the end when
    mile finished the the theme then walked of camera while Paul finshed the piece, the coolest

  5. Heyman, he’s just Miles, ..got it?
    Best Miles story I know…a (white) interviewer asked him what he’d do if he knew he he was about to die.

    ‘Go kill white people.’

    Speaking only for my little piece o dirt, …I liked Train better most of the time.

    All children should learn to read music in grade school, and have music history that teaches them Kind of Blue to Bach.
