Roger Waters
Us + Them Tour
Barclays Center
September 11th

Not sure of Roger Waters’ stance on Jews, but I know he doesn’t like walls.  In fact, he wants them torn down.  Like the ones in Israel.  I can see his point.  Other Jews cannot.  So some Jews don’t like Roger Waters whatsoever

does this make me a Roger Waters lover Jew? #TearDownAllWalls (except @walmart) #JewsForWaters

I am not one of those Jews.  I hope that’s OK with the rest of you Jews.  If not, it’s your loss, cause dude, Roger Waters is the fcuking BEST!!

This was my 5th time seeing the rotten ole bastard.  First two times he did Dark Side in full, then the next two me saw him Wall build and destroy!  Where did he go from there, as in two nights ago?  The best of both + a new album (which is totally NOT awful!)  

Who knows if this will be his last tour or not.  You have to assume it’s the last time, and so you juss go and see him, again and again, and I will continue to do so.  So should JEW!

And dude, LOVE the bobbed hair babes!

but seriously Roger… look, I love your faux David Gilmour – David Gilmwitz, but can’t you and David bury the BS and juss reunite???  You don’t need the money, but there would be plenty.  Do it for us, or do it cause you hate Trump more than all of us (Jews and non-Jews and Jews who hate you) combined

Wish I Was There

one of the greatest album covers of balls thyme is Pink Floyd’s Wish You Were Here

wish you were2

wish you were

there were TWO versions of the Storm Thorgerson designed album cover.  the one above, with the man on fire leaning forward (which is the current one in use since the 2011 reissue), and the one below, where the man on fire is leaning back (used for releases from 1975 to 2011)

wish you were onfire

two stuntmen were used for the shoot – Ronnie Rondell and Danny Rogers.  Rondell is the one on fire.  He was dressed in a fire-retardant suit covered by a business suit. His head was protected by a hood, underneath a wig.  Rondell’s suit was painted with rubber cement and ignited three times before it ripped and his flame-retardant long-Johns peeked through the holes  

Initially the wind was blowing in the wrong direction, and the flames were forced into Rondell’s face, burning his moustache, eyebrows and eyelashes.  ‘It’ll happen in a heartbeat‘, says Rondell.  ‘The fire wraps around your face real quick, like a barbecue thing. The wig was fried, it melted up into a ball.‘  The two stuntmen changed positions, and the image was later reversed  

Rondell got $500 and only worked an hour.  Rogers was paid $250 for the easier job

the photograph was taken at the Warner Bros Studios in Los Angeles, between stages 16 and 21

wish you were guys

Gilmour Guys

David Gilmour
Madison Square Garden
April 11th

gilmour msg

I love me some Floyd man, but I never saw them in concert as ‘Pink Floyd’… and I never will (doesn’t help that most of the band are dead and the ones that are alive basically hate each other).  I was always on team Roger Waters, and was blessed to have seen him 4 times in the past decade – twice for his Dark Side of The Moon tour and twice for his The Wall rebuilding.  Somehow I didn’t give David Gilmour the Gilmour guy love that I should have given him – I mean, this is THE fcuking guitarist for Pink Floyd!!!

The last time Gilmy was in the states was briefly in 2006, and before that even more breiflyerer in 1988, so I didn’t have many chances to jump at something I wasn’t exactly jumping for.  But ever since I saw Waters, I was like man, I really should see Gilmour, before he or I die, and boom – Gilmour came to the states to support a (decent) new album, stopping by 4 cities only in North America, and boom – here we are

And so?  Dude, David Gilmour is THE fcuking guitarist for Pink Floyd – perhaps the most guitaristishy band the world has ever known.  And dude, David Gilmour can SHRED that fcuking guitar, man – creating soundscapes that CANNOT be escaped from.  I mean, dude, why weren’t you there?  I WISH YOU WERE THERE!!!! with me!!!!

you know where it goes from here, and I truly #WishYouWereHere

A video posted by Thigh Master (@thighmaster) on


Gilmy played new songs, he played Floyd songs, he played BS Floyd songs from the time where Pink Floyd was basically juss him, but whatever he played, it blew my ears, and my penis, and my mind, and your mind, even though you weren’t there.  Man, I truly wish you were there

If you weren’t there, I bet you wish you were there, and I wish I could say that there’ll be many more times he’ll come back and be here, but I think that’s juss well wishing, for wishes that may never come true again.  Oh well
