Bye Bye Blackboard 07-10-2014 17:43 Forum: General Discussion


Dear Fellow Blackboarders,

I come to you with a heavy heart. Sadly, we can no longer afford to keep the Blackboard running and will have to shut it down probably next week sometime.

Of course, if someone likes it enough to help support it, I’m all ears. The total cost to renew the 77s website with this hosting company is around $175 so if anyone is interested in making a donation to cover the board cost (maybe half of that amount? The exorbitant cost is due to the massive size of our board), please contact me ASAP at mike@77s.com ….

I really don’t wish to see the Blackboard go, but we simply can no longer afford to keep it alive by ourselves. Of course, you can always join me for the usual madness on my Facebook page --

Thanks for the memories, everybody!

Never heard of ‘em. Maybe they did, maybe they didn’t open for us. Doesn’t matter now.

The only thing that matters is that Marzuki opened for The Lost Dogs in Grand Rapids once and now Sufjan Stevens is my musical hero and I ignored him. Silly me.

That was the record company’s art director’s choice.

It was reportedly Franklin Delano Roosevelt as a child, but this has been disputed (compare photos below) Evidently, back in the day it was quite the thing to dress up little boys in drag and photograph them that way.

And we think we live in a screwed up society today ...

We are about to launch the promised Kickstarter campaign for this album, hopefully sometime this week. The album (along with all the attending tiers of goodies and gumdrops) will be available in most of today’s desired formats.

Very nice Marti, thanks for running that. I may have read that one before but I’m not sure. It’s very kind for an album that’s all over the place technically and musically, but it’s a fun listen.

It’s For You is the one thing I could hand a stranger that wanted to get to know me personally. After you’ve heard it, you can say you pretty much know me …. well, me at my best anyways ….

Those were the wild days of touring without a set list. What a mess, but we had fun. I can’t imagine doing that sort of thing again, mostly because it’s now been a few decades since I’ve even heard a lot of those tunes. In 1997, the oldest songs were 15 years old. Now they’re 30 years old. Lotsa brain cells gone missing since then.

I only recently became aware that “It’s For You” was a hit song for 60s British pop star Cilla Black written by John Lennon & Paul McCartney. Mine is waaayyy better:

We have actually done this many years ago, much to mine and the band’s chagrin.

However, we might consider doing it again if there were enough decent recordings out there. At least it could possibly raise some dough for some new studio recordings or other cool projects ~~

Though our numbers be small, we are mighty in His grace.

I’m off to continue the now month-long celebration with a piece of Sicilian-styled ‘Hershey Chocolate Town’ cake with seafoam frosting and pineapple pudding filling for breakfast.

The cake is unimaginable until you’ve tasted it, and has becomes a perennial birthday favorite. Even my daughter now requests that I make it for her every year. My grandmother made it for all the kids’ birthdays most of her life and I have been making it for myself for over 30 years of birthdays.

This year I came home from tour to a perfect version of it courtesy of my loving wife ~~ : *

Old Angel DVD 08-28-2012 01:02 Forum: General Discussion


No, we’re still in the planning stage for it.

It’s hard to understand how a film or video project can stall for years and years until you actually work on one and find out how expensive and time-consuming it is. We went into this blind with no budget, no script and an amateur camera and cameraman. We’re lucky we got anything on film at all.

At this point, we’re looking to make something like a ‘long form’ video of all the tunes on the album, interspersed with interviews, comedy bits, running gags and narration over still photos. Quite an undertaking, and we’d love to raise some money from the fans to help make this happen, but evidently we have already tapped the fans for this project once before. Turns out we bit off more than we could chew financially, as we had no real clue as to the realities of what making a feature length film actually costs.

Let’s just say that our goals for this project are far more modest and realistic now that we realize just exactly what we ended up steppin’ in ~~

Our Wild Cherry 07-31-2012 21:55 Forum: General Discussion


It’s a horrible piece of crap not worth the celluloid it was printed on.

Old engineer pal John Flanagan (Safe As Milk/Tom Tom Blues/The Language of Fools) and his wife had some film music deal going and offered to help get some of our tunes in a movie.

They did. Sadly, it was this film. ’Snake’ got used for the ‘masturbation scene’ -- nice. Also, neither they nor us got paid one penny for any of this. We didn’t care, but they sure did -- they worked and slaved tirelessly on the music for this film for well over a year and the filmmakers never paid them.

So much for the big time ~~
