  1. What Are You Watching

    No thanks on the eating! I prefer watching cooking with a wok, these chefs of masters, their woks have to be scorching hot!
  2. What Are You Watching

    Lately I've become addicted to watching Asian cooking videos on YouTube, cabin fever causes strange things...
  3. MLB Season 2020

    I read somewhere the thinking is each big league team has its full forty man roster active and there will be games with the scrubs to keep them in shape. though, again, what to do with injuries is a big problem. IMHO, just cancel the season -- of course, I can say that, but for the players, they do need to make money for themselves and their families. This whole thing has to be tough on athletes (I know, it's not like death), but a player has only so many years to make money, and this season is gone. PS: MLB might do the hockey thing and name the players eligible for that day's game.
  4. Surf guitar

    I had forgotten this one, and it's great! ReckBeat is a very good label, and this is a quality set.
  5. MLB Season 2020

    It's the year after the Bud Harrelson / Pete Rose dust-up in the playoffs. So, I'm in the left field bleachers in San Diego and the crowd is on Rose, who is playing left field, for the entire game, I mean non-stop, full-bore, unrelenting, calling him everything under the sun. Bottom of the ninth, and, of course the Padres are losing, the final out is a fly ball to left, Rose catches it, turns around to the bleachers, and flips everyone off. Of course, now he would have probably been suspended with a fine. Then, everyone laughed.
  6. "Gammon" as slang. Is this only a UK thing?
  7. What Are You Watching

    A bunch of music from my long lost youth on YouTube, the most recent song:
  8. Surf guitar

    Half because I love the song, the other half for the memories it conjures of growing up in San Diego where Endless Summer was a mainstay in the theaters. Dig this one because it's a badass song

    The very same, and Bobby Fuller is in one of my all time favorite rock video:
