Jeez, all these people with one post asking questions. Don't they know that they can go to the Electrical Audio Forums and ask these questions? They must not. Back to the poker questions!

Thanks for answering my previous questions. I'm pleased to hear that you think Russ is the best LHE player in your regular game, but am surprised that you didn't mention him in the NLHE category especially considering his outstanding NLHE tournament record.

Three more quick questions, if you'd be so kind:

1. Have you ever smooth-called on the river with the nuts when heads-up?

2. Have you ever shot an angle? Even a little one?

3. What are your favorite poker phrases?

Grazie

A couple of questions for you:

1. The new Shellac record is great! I've always wondered, though, how do you keep your objectivity when it comes to your own performances (and bandmates, whom you are close with)? Is it more difficult to do? Or are you capable, or used to, being able to judge properly whether you are happy or not happy with a performance, recording work, mix, with Shellac of North America?

2. I love your work with Low. My band recently recorded with Alan Sparhawk and Eric Swanson in Duluth (at their church/studio) and it was a great experience. One thing that always struck me on those records you did with Low was the string quartet (or more?) sounds -- just beautiful. How in particular did you get those sounds and was it any different then just miking up, sans amp, an acoustic guitar or something like that?

Hi Steve. I'm a big fan. I hope this is really you.

Where did the name Rape Man come from? Was it named after someone specific?

I hear you like baseball. Do you play? Have you ever thought about owning a team? If so, I would like to be the manager, ha ha.

What is your philosophy for playing NLHE against bad, unpredictable players?

Who is the best Swingo player you know? Does he make a lot of money playing it?

Sorry for all the questions. I think I am just nervous or something.

This is a fun diversion from discussing the softness of Florida O8 tables...and oh they are newly-minted-baby-bottom soft...

I saw Rapeman at CBGBs way back in 199X. Jeez is Rey an amazing drummer; he and George Hurley freak me out. At any rate, I saw that you used Dunlop copper picks. I love the things for their durability and the bright kind of sound they help deliver. However, on yours I noticed there was a little snip taken from the tip of the pick so that there were in effect two little points at the tip. Was that something deliberate? If so, why and how did you do it?

And for those who asked getting in to the recording biz, or for folks who are just curious about amateur recording, there's about a bajillion options for noodling around as an amateur. Any Sam Ash will be happy to overcharge you for a casette (or digital) 4 track. Any Mac will have "Garage Band" for free, though the time I've spent with it has been frustration. The Tascam 428 is a nice, cheap option that will allow multitracking. Where you'll realy end up spening $$$ is on mics. Steve, feel free to debunk this free advice...

Steve,

1. Janet Weiss yes or no? and why.
2. Any stories you can share on your working with Polly Jean Harvey? When Rid of Me came out, she went on record as saying she was pleased with the work you had done. Would you like to work with PJ again?

1. Have you ever smooth-called on the river with the nuts when heads-up?



Not heads-up. I misread my hand once and smooth called a three-way pot with a straight flush. I thought I had backdoored a one-card flush the 8 when I had actually made a straight flush.

Quote:

2. Have you ever shot an angle? Even a little one?



Can't think of one. But this might be an angle right here. Wait, here's one. I was out of position against Devin with some mediocre hand like second pair, and another overcard comes on the river. I said "I check and call." Hoping to get him to reveal the strength of his hand. He obliged by betting about twice the pot, so I folded.

Quote:

3. What are your favorite poker phrases?



Well, I love hearing "I fold." Just love it. Like pretty music. I like the French term for pushing all-in, "Tapis," meaning "carpet," as though you were emptying your house out down to the carpets in order to bet everything.

There are some poker expressions that are unique to the Tuesday game that I quite like, and deserve to see wider use:

"Shitapes" unskilled players of the type found in low-limit online games and at the casino boats near Chicago. Inspired by a chat-box insult, but appropriate because they jabber and throw their chips in the pot the way monkeys fling their poo.

"Bot" an opening raise to 5x the BB, after a player in the game who would pretend to be a robot calculating the perfect bet. Also, a min-raise following a Bot is a re-Bot.

"Crapass" complaining about the way the cards fell. After another player who would occasionally violently muck his "crapass cards!" Also, complaining about anything is now "crapassing."

"Wizard mode" when a player is passively calling bets on the river, being a pay-off wizard, he is said to be stuck in "Wizard mode." It is also a subtle jab at role-playing gamers, the only class with a higher dork quotient than poker players.
