Trailer Trad Tunes: Surf's Up! More Alt-Surf

I love high-energy, surf-inspired alternative rock because it reminds me of Summer days ahead. The genre borrows liberally from classic surfer music but adds fun, innovative twists that make most of it very contemporary. -Best of new and old. How trailer trad is that!

I'm showcasing a few new bands but perhaps the most interesting is Zack Mexico. Straight from the Outer Banks, the band is real deal garage and surf. They developed their own, unique sound at the beach where they incorporated their aquatic experiences into the mood of their music. DIIV and Taco Cat are just more fun rythms and lyrics. Enjoy!

Pick all of the hamburgers and pizzas.....These CAPTCHAs are making me hungry!

Paul, I liked your letter to the Galatians better.

You'd be surprised at how effective CAPTCHAS are as barriers to entry.

Heck, I thought I had solved the Fermat–Catalan conjecture here the other day, but I misidentified a chili dog as a hamburger and lost all of my work!

You mean to say, Mr. Whiplash, that you have found an 11th solution?!?!

1+2^3 = 3^2 (Catalan)
2^5+7^2 = 3^4
7^3+13^2 = 2^9
2^7+17^3 = 71^2
3^5+11^4 = 122^2
17^7+76271^3 = 21063928^2
1414^3+2213459^2 = 65^7
9262^3+15312283^2 = 113^7
43^8+96222^3 = 30042907^2
33^8+1549034^2 = 15613^3

P.S. I have previously confused the pizza CAPTCHA as well. It can be difficult to sometimes separate the pizza from the bowl of spaghetti!

Frankly, I resent the anti-robot sentiment of your comment policy. You will be hearing from my lawyer XMR-374898 - LWR Enabled (who, yes, happens to be a robot)! And I will be suing for reimbursement for the human that I have had to hire to resolve the CAPTCHAs on your blog!

Snidely and Stan,
Nerd humor never gets old. Ring. Ring. That was Methusela chiming in. He feels that it can get old.

Can't I send you a case of WD-40 to make this all go away?

Trailer Trad said...

Snidely and Stan,

Just kidding. Very clever!

I don't think it's nice of you laughin....

Rather than the Fermat Conjecture, I think that the comments on this blog relate more to the Fermi Paradox -- e.g. where are the sings of intelligent life?
