  1. More dumbass worship of MJ

    Mnytime, Ed Swinnich & Jazzmoose on the same thread. That was long ago... I miss them all.
  2. Happy Birthday Chuck Nessa!

    Happy Birthday!
  3. Now reading...

    This Side of Paradise by F. Scott Fitzgerald. For some reason, I find myself returning more and more to Fitzgerald, who I tended to ignore in my callous youth.
  4. MLB Season 2020

    Interesting article, thanks for posting. I always tend to be on the side of the players when it comes to money. Professional careers tend to be short, and especially in the NFL, brutal, so get the money while you can, because for 90% of the players, there won't be that much left after a career is over.
  5. MLB Season 2020

    Honestly, the protocols being proposed are unworkable for a baseball game; for one thing, who is going to watch over and certify that the protocols are being followed? The home team? MLB? Union rep? Someone from the outside? I don't see how any sport is going to be played.

    Sad to hear this, Pretty Things are one of my go to bands to listen to. RIP
  9. Farrago. A messy, confused mixture or conglomeration. Well, I never heard this one before.
  10. Listening to this and it's great. Thanks for the rec!

  12. MLB Season 2020

    I don't get if the general public still needs to be six feet apart for safety reasons in the next couple of months, at the minimum, how players in the NBA, NFL, and MLB are going to be safe, along with their families. I know these players are in great shape, but still, young people do die from the virus. Maybe I'm missing something in all the different scenarios I'm hearing...
  13. MLB Season 2020

    I love watching sports also, but given the uncertainty about even basic matters concerning the virus, I think it sports should shut down the rest of the year, that might mean even the SEC!

  15. May COVID 19 Poll

    Yeah, businesses here aren't too happy with how things are going, especially since the Napa area depends on tourism for a lot of its finances. Most businesses, from what I've read, only do about 20% of their normal business curbside. The wineries are supposed to be opening up their tasting rooms, but who is going to go to those?
  16. Rest Easy Mom & Dad

    Deepest prayers and sympathy, a sad loss for you and the family.
  17. What Are You Watching

    Brooklyn 99. Season 2. First time watching the series, and I'm enjoying it a lot. Here's a video mash-up of the dancing in the series.
  18. what are you drinking right now?

    not enough....
  19. An amazing day to remember, and is some ways, a very melancholy day. I'm at the age now (61) where people in their twenties and younger ask about "how it was when I was growing up", (which makes me feel so old), and one of the most striking changes is this: When I grew up, Word War II was a major part of the ambiance of the culture. I knew many people who fought in the war, there were still Army surplus stores with items from WWII, and politics was run by people who were veterans of WWII, in fact, wasn't President Carter the first US President who was not a WWII veteran? Now WWII seems like the distant past, and all those veterans are long gone.
  20. May COVID 19 Poll

    I live in a county that has been lightly touched by the virus (70 cases 2 deaths) and we're officially entering stage 2 today. We'll see what happens.
  21. Wrong On So Many Levels

    Don't know why it's funny because that "shit" is real enough.
  22. El Michels Affair: Enter the 37th Chamber
  23. Self Discovery For Social Survival. Surf movie, mostly shots of surfers riding the waves, interspersed with cosmic narration. A group of musicians improvised over the film and created a wonderful sound track of surfer style instrumental songs. Enjoyed it very much, only fifty minutes but worth the watch. Highly recommend watching with headphones.
  24. COVID-19 III: No Politics For Thee

    What a great phrase! Never heard "duffery" before, but I like it.
