It was pretty foul in the stairwell because I think most people just never made it all the way to the actual toilet before they began involuntarily expelling bodily substances all over the place.
 
In a nod toward equality of some sort, a lot of San Francisco nightclub/bar bathrooms were unisex. Which led to a strange pickup line, "I promise I didn't piss on the seat."

Will do {#Cheers}  If it does play here, it's likely to be shown at a theater in a part of town where every other person is in a rock band (so it seems). That would be the right audience!

Dave Grohl seems like the most down-to-earth, well-adjusted rock star around. I saw a documentary of the band a year or so ago, which included footage of the recording of "Wasted Light."  He lives in an ordinary suburban house (with pool), not one of those huge mansions favored by movie and rock stars. The recording sessions seemed a bit surreal for a rock band. Very family-friendly - at one point his daughter walked into the middle of a session and tugged on Grohl's arm, asking him to go swimming. He treats his bandmates well, too. When the bass player decided to leave the Foo Fighters to join another band, Grohl told him "OK, then you call the rest of the band and tell them." {#Lol} Then Grohl let him back in the band when he changed his mind. Cool guy.

Way to go, Mr. Grohl. Like I needed another reason to love and admire you.

  
I'll have to check that out. I wasn't a fan of Foo Fighters at first, but I've grown to appreciate their music more and more over the years. Their most recent album ("Wasted Light") was very good.

Dave Grohl has certainly been coming into his own (as evidenced by the heavy hitters who come out to play with him these days) and making some marks in the rock world, and has created quite a little masterpiece that was just supposed to be a movie about the rare and awesome Neve Soundboard used to create hundreds of notorious rock albums since the early 70s.

 
"Sound City" (see trailer below) spiraled into a full-on rock documentary about the history that happened in the dumpy little recording studio in Van Nuys, California where the likes of Tom Petty, Fleetwood Mac (where the Buckingham/Nicks fusion pretty much happened), the Grateful Dead, Neil Young and countless others recorded chart-breaking albums.
 
The movie focuses on not only the integrity of old-school reel-to-reel sound recording before digital took over, but also the human interaction and expertise necessary for such recordings....the sounds that can only be made when people are actually playing together, looking at one another, and feeding off the energy of the jam.
 
You get to be a fly on the wall of so many great moments where artists are creating.....and you don't want to even whisper to your friend or look away for ONE SECOND throughout the film because Grohl did SUCH a great job with subtle nuances of facial expressions, mutterings, comical subtitles, and camera angles.
 
When digital took over, this era of rock history almost went extinct - but then Nirvana saved Sound City's ass, quite unwittingly (another great sub-story of small-town boys dropping their world and going for it with all they have).
 
To say anymore would ruin your experience, so let me just say..........
 
 
SEE THIS!

'Blood Into Wine' is a documentary on Maynard James Keenan's (Tool, Puscifer, APC) wine growing venture here in Arizona. In addition to being humorous, informative and entertaining, look for me featured in the Harvest Blessings segment.  
The following is just the trailer.

Tickets have been purchased. I've been seeing trailers and songs from this on my Dave Grohl/Foo Fighters mailing list since before the holidays. Way to build it up.
 

Rod said it was about 3-4 miles from his childhood home, but he never knew about it until this film.
