  1. Oh my, cooking with heartbreakers - this could get tasty. My first thought was "straight into darkness cake" - a deep, dark chocolate cake like this or this. Accompanied by coffee, a bottle of coke, and cigarettes. I kinda wanna try to create a Dirty Knobs Dark Chocolate Caramel Sea Salt Bar Cookie with whiskey and chopped walnuts...sigh. There wouldn't be a lot of these bar cookies to go around, but those who get a taste will want more and more. You might even need to fly to California for a bite of these! πŸ˜‰ And then I googled and found: A heartbreak cake? A melting heart bundt cake? I'd also suggest you do not search for "Tom Petty Cake" on Pinterest, either. 😁
  2. I definitely like Mike's instagram account - #mywifethevideographer - lol. If you don't have the instagram app, you can also see it here: https://www.instagram.com/mikecampbellofficial
  3. Where is the string of jeans posts? I went searching to see if I could find 'em and didn't find much. This was back in 2009 or so...when I rekindled my love of TPATH and started hanging out at the farm. Was it a string of posts? Just a comment in a post, and then there were other comments? Or was it just me? 'Coz I do like a nice pair of jeans. Here are two threads that showed up in my search for jeans: 1) Deep in this thread about super fan Margo are some comments about nice fitting jeans. Lots of the links are no longer working. 2) And this from Photo of the Day II -- and that amazing picture from Europe of the band. And, in particular, Mike's *very* nicely fitting jeans. SLQueen posted the pic originally; it's from Sweden in 1977 -- )
  4. We had a string of posts some time ago regarding the front of jeans, so there definitely should be a string of posts regarding the (ahem) rear of jeans. 😁 Sigh, loving this thread.
  5. No clue about the signatures, but the marathon was real. 3rd place overall was Christopher Cheboibich.
  6. I definitely got them from the farm...8-9 years ago, I think. There were four pictures, plus the one you posted.
  7. Pretty sure other pix from this photoshoot are hiding somewhere deep in Farm history... but I couldn't find them...I distinctly remember the outtakes because I loved this photo
  8. I had heard of the Finn brothers and Crowded House back in the day, but watching 7 World Collide made me a fan! Fabulous DVD.
  9. These are a little tricky to post, so here are the steps. I'm using giphy.com: 1) I'm going to giphy.com. 2) Find a gif and click on it. 3) You should see "copy link" on the right. Click it. 4) There are options. Copy the "GIF Link" one. 5) Come on back to this thread and reply. 6) Type some words - but also click "Insert Other Media" 7) Insert Image from URL 8) Insert Into Post If the link area turns red, it's not working. Try another link. It definitely didn't work with all Gifs. Also, dance a little:
  10. "If it's not threatening, it's not rock and roll."
  11. Wow! Those are something - never seen them before, either.
  12. One of my hobbies is genealogy. It's interesting to see what's showing up on various genealogy websites. Here are two I've seen so far. Find A Grave (with family links) We Relate (TP was one of the October challenges - the other was Glen Campbell.)
  13. Wow! I don't think I saw this back in the day.
  14. From my blog today (with a Mudcrutch Farm shoutout!) http://wordstormcasserole.com/grief-and-tom-petty/
  15. The Wikipedia Discography helps with this task... I ignored the bit hits and picked others I've loved over the years: Luna Casa Dega Gator On The Lawn, Heartbreakers Beach Party, Spike - that sense of humor! Magnolia No Second Thoughts Louisiana Rain Something Big Letting You Go Straight Into Darkness (of course) Change of Heart The Best of Everything It'll All Work Out Two Gunslingers Lonesome Sundown Something Good Coming A Face In The Crowd Crawling Back To You A Higher Place Down South
  16. Oh, "Straight Into Darkness" is one of my favorites. It just nails that feeling of "I don't know if this will work out, but I'm gonna do it anyway," then mashes it with a tinge of regret/sadness for what has happened. They played the song during the opening set of the 2008 (?) tour in Grand Rapids and I about screamed my lungs out!
  17. From Benmont's wife, Alice: http://www.alicecarbone.com/thank-you-tom/
  18. Also, a nice tribute from World Cafe: http://www.npr.org/sections/world-cafe/2017/10/03/555173542/remembering-tom-petty-on-the-world-cafe
  19. Tom Petty tribute from Coverville: http://coverville.com/episodes/tom-petty-tribute/
  20. So sad, no words. Some "rarely seen photos" here: https://www.smithsonianmag.com/arts-culture/tom-petty-standard-bearer-classic-rock-dies-age-66-180965092/?no-cache
  21. I stop by The Farm every day, mostly lurking, occasionally contributing. I loved TomFest's description of TF as "the corner pub where I can pull up a stool, open an adult beverage, and have a look around." This site is definitely that - a friendly place with interesting discussion and authentic interaction between people who love TPATH. That said, I use Facebook a lot. The biggest advantage is that it *seems* like everyone is there; obviously, that's not true. But it is the big player on the scene now and should be taken into consideration. So here's my take on how it might work.... FB pages -business pages- are OK. Posts and comments are public so they are seen by everyone (unless you figure out how to tweak your personal settings.) And posts aren't always seen by all people who have 'liked' the page; this leads to the 'pay to play' philosophy that so many businesses use - they 'boost' a particular post so it is seen by more of the people who 'like' the page. It's nonsense. However, if Mudcrutch Farm was to move to Facebook, I'd recommend leaving this site as an archive (?) Keep the FB page and encourage people to Join the Mudcrutch Farm group. Facebook groups are fabulous. If the group is private/secret, an administrator (or administrative team) approves members; some even have a simple questionnaire to prove your "worthiness." For example, the Mudcrutch Farm Group questionnaire might include questions like: what's your favorite TPATH song/album? do you prefer Ron Blair or Howie Epstein on bass? how many times have you seen TPATH in concert? Here's a not TPATH-related example. I love shopping and finding cute clothes, so I joined a bunch of Facebook groups. In those groups you can: Buy clothes from retailers. Many small, local boutiques have their own groups and offer special things for group members. Buy/Trade clothes with group members. For example, if a member bought a shirt from the retailer and the shirt didn't fit, the member could sell the shirt to a different member - and the transaction is handled as friends/family via PayPal. Talk about the great deals you got at X store or online retailer Share pictures of your outfit of the day List the cute clothes you're looking for. You can add photos, files, events, and videos. And it's all private. I can't tell you how many cute clothes I've bought, and online 'friends' I've made as a result of participation in these groups and others. FB Groups are definitely places for authentic connection - just like Mudcrutch Farm.
