  1. COVID-19 2.0: No Politics edition

    Don't give the loonies out there any ideas. Next thing you know, we'll be reading about someone dying from inhaling Hydrox.
  2. COVID-19 2.0: No Politics edition

    My mother's place is also virus-free but it is less than a half mile from the Holyoke Soldiers' Home, where there is a massive outbreak that's been making the national newswires. I am very worried that it might jump to my mom's place due to the similarities in workforce. All it takes is one nurse or cook and it'll spread rapidly.

    At this time, I don't know if it's a good thing that my mother went into a retirement facility late last year, but one good thing did come out of it - we got her finances all set. That's such a tough thing to have to do.
  4. Onaje Allan Gumbs R.I.P.

    I was just thinking about Gumbs last week, wondering if I would get to see him again. It had been so long since I last saw him perform that I had forgotten where I saw him. I know he's been having severe health problems for many years. In fact, I have not heard that his death was virus-related, so I was thinking maybe he had another stroke.
  5. Now playing: Louis Hayes - Breath Of Life (Muse). This is an interesting date. It moves outside of where I thought Louis would go. It's not free but it's not your typical hard bop date either.
  6. COVID-19 2.0: No Politics edition

    My biggest concern when I have to go in 100% of my time is that I'll really miss being able to eat a large midday meal as opposed to eating "dinner" 5-6 at night after i get home. I sleep much better when I eat my big meal midday. I know my dog is going to miss getting 3-4 walks a day.
  7. Just finished: 80th Anniversary version of Art Blakey - Indestructible. Now playing: David Schnitter - Goliath (Muse) Two things... First, WTF is up with this cover? Am I missing something here? Is he supposed to be praying to his saxophone to help save him from those sheep? Second, why does bass sound so terrible from this short period of time in Jazz? McBee's bass sound is so whiny. It's like a big mosquito buzzing around my head.
  8. Amazing to realize that she was 39 when this was filmed. She doesn't look it to me.

    Holy cow... the idiocy of some people. If they only asked, someone could explain to them that 5G uses the same signals as 2G, 3G & 4G. 5G just uses them differently. Killing cell phone towers will not stop those signals from being broadcast. In fact, killing towers forces the remaining towers to broadcast at higher power levels to maintain coverage in the area. Dolts. My old hometown, Holyoke, MA, has made the national news for all the wrong reasons. The Holyoke Soldiers' Home had a massive outbreak of COVID-19 and their handling of it is almost criminal. I can't imagine if this was a story about my dad:
  10. Black Saint/Soul Note Box Sets

    I finally started cracking open my Black Saint/Soul Note boxes today and the first one I got open was Gianluigi Trovesi's box. I got to "Baghet" and discovered that it won't play the last track. Is anyone else finding this to be true?

  13. COVID-19 2.0: No Politics edition

    After 2 straight days of pouring rain, I was finally able to take a walk with my wife and golden retriever, something which some of my more asshole-y neighbors think is an evil thing, when my neighbor working out in his yard (horrors!! outside!! He should be shot!! He should be staying in his house!!) told me that one of our elderly neighbors, who lives about 500 feet from me, died from COVID-19. She was in her 80s and not in good health. The scary part? She caught it at the local cardiac rehab center, which happens to share the same lobby as my PCP's office, which has been mysteriously closed for several weeks. Now we know why. Apparently, someone there caught the virus and spread it around before they figured it out. It came awfully close to me this time. I only missed it by a few days as I had an appointment just as they shuttered the place.

  15. How to Add Photos to Posts With Windows 10

    Does copy and paste work for you? I've tried it in Firefox and Chrome on my Windows 10 machine and several Linux machines and it's worked on all of them.
