  1. MLB Season 2020

    Ok, this stinks! I'm calling it utter bull**** that ESPN announcers are talking to Justin Turner, while he's on the field, playing the game! That is way beyond the pale for me, and if it distracts Turner from making a play, a way that ESPN can effect the out come of the game.
  2. How's the weather?

    Hot, high winds, with fires. Many places in St. Helena are being evacuated.
  3. MLB Season 2020

    Giants out, couldn't win a game against a very good Padres team, Tatis Jr. is unreal. All for the best, the Giants weren't that good of a team in the first place.
  4. Allison Krauss + Union Station: Live
  5. Thanks, the YouTube video was a good help for me to get a sense of price ranges and how things work. It also gave me two places to begin to look. I had a good idea before starting with the videos that I had to pay something, it's not good uploading a video on their YT channel, then having it shut down for copyright infringement -- not a good look for a non-profit! Now if only I can get this iMovie thing down.
  6. I've been asked to create on-line videos for a Non-Profit (a Catholic religious order), and I'm wondering about using music, mostly for background. Is there a service for Public Domain music, or is it one of these areas that for protection, I need to subscribe to a service for non-PD music. The videos are not for a large audience, target hits is in the 10,000 range. Anyone out there with experience on this topic?
  7. What happens to your collection?

    It got to a point, after moving and packing three times is three years, with more moves to come, I sold and gave away everything -- books, lps, cds, art, anything thing that I had is gone. It all feels very light. I morn the loss at times as I did have a good selection of materials, but everything now fits into one box. As I said, it has it's good and bad points, but paying $100.00 for an Apple Music subscription, I can keep up with the music I enjoy, and I'm not leaving anything behind.
  8. COVID-19 III: No Politics For Thee

    I've gone to local restaurants since they opened for indoor dining four of five times. The tables are kept well apart, and the only person around, outside of guests, in the server, so it seems to be working well. Of course, around here most jobs are tourist dependent to a great extent, and people from the bordering counties that are shut down, come here to enjoy free time, so dining is encouraged to help the local economy. As to coronavirus conditions, Napa County is actually going down in terms of cases, and everyone is expecting the go-ahead on 50% capacity in a week or two -- we're at 25% right now.
  9. what are you drinking right now?

    Laird Cabernet Sauvignon 2015.
  10. This is an outstanding album, if you like Poco or country rock, this is highly recommended.
  11. Poco: Live at Columbia Studios, Hollywood, 9/30/71
  12. RIP Stanley Crouch

    This is a very interesting article. Thanks for posting.
  13. Now reading...

    Roosevelt: The Lion and the Fox by James MacGregor Burns. First of a two volume biography of FDR. Kind of old style in its writing, but it is still a good book where a person gets a feel for the era portrayed.
  14. Serena Williams vs The World

    Serena's still looking for the one last Grand Slam. Of the four players from last night, Williams looked the weakest. The Osaka vs. Brady match was a very entertaining match, I can't believe how much Brady has improved her game. Osaka vs. Azarenka will be close, but I think Osaka has too much power for Vika.
  15. Dame Diana Rigg, R.I.P.

    The Hospital is one underrated movie, it's great and Riggs was very good.
  16. Please movie gods, let this Dune be done right!
  17. How's the weather?

    The fires are causing extremely smoky skies today in Napa and the Bay Area
  18. Neil Young: Massey Hall. It fully merits all the praise it receives, wonderful album
