  1. Tim & How The Replacements Ruined Everything. Plenty to disagree with, but I think worth a watch.
  2. Hope it's a great long patio day.
  3. Thanks. If you want to venture over to a third medium, Dawoud Bey: Night Coming Tenderly, Black, is another modern look at the Underground Railroad.
  4. More Tiny Desks: Natalia Lafourcade... ... and then Monsieur Periné
  5. I just learned I only have months to live. This is what I want to say I’ve been a journalist for more than 60 years. So after doctors delivered the news, I sat down to do what came naturally, if painfully: Write this story. https://www.bostonglobe.com/2021/07/21/magazine/i-just-learned-i-only-have-months-live-this-is-what-i-want-say/
  6. Playing Courtney Marie Andrews' Old Flowers, a breakup album reflecting on what once was, which was on constant play as we settled in for the pandemic, and Maple Glider's To Enjoy Is the Only Thing, heard pretty much non-stop over the last week (and mentioned here several times), a celebratory look towards connections and the future. Love songs can be goofy, but I wonder if these will end up being my COVID bookends (well, if we're approaching an end, probably too optimistic as both my and Mel's return to work just got pushed out even further and rates are increasing nearly everywhere).

    Timbuk2 sale ending today if anyone needs even more bags. https://www.timbuk2.com/collections/sale
  8. The Olympic Mascots are forgotten https://www.nytimes.com/2021/07/27/world/asia/tokyo-olympics-mascots.html?referringSource=articleShare
  9. ^ I've requested that at several cover band shows and wedding receptions! _____ Someone in '76 thought the world needed a Happy Days-Welcome Back, Kotter cross over song (though they took place in different decades). The Fonzerelli Slide...
  10. Also Lasso last night. Today, and I know this won't be everyone's cup of tea but keep in mind the main characters are designed to be split between loving and hating musicals, Schmigadoon!
  11. Anyone have good links to the opening ceremonies this morning? Also at least 100 US athletes unvaccinated. https://www.theguardian.com/sport/2021/jul/23/number-of-vaccinated-us-athletes-tokyo-olympics-2020
  12. ^ This. Thanks Mikey. Christmas in July.
  13. Yeah, White’s name is all that got me past the first episode, but I did think it laid the ground work in the second and I enjoyed its growing cringy-ness. It’s a limited series so we’ll see, but very hopeful. On the other end of hope, watched the pilot of Sexy Beasts, a dating show where the put sexy people with the worst personalities together to prove it’s “all about personalities”.
  14. I think you have the Sieveking Omega stand. One of mine is also. The other is a newer, cheaper made, random brand X Omega stand (lots of options) that’s 1/7th the price and probably why no one stocks the Sieveking any longer (if they even make them). The amp stand, aka monitor/laptop stand, is made by Navaris, and dimensions work well with the GS-X Mini.
  15. Maple Glider - To Enjoy Is the Only Thing Example...
  16. Following Mikey's lead... Captain & Tennille - Love Will Keep Us Together
  17. Anyone else watching Mike White’s The White Lotus [HBO]? Two episodes out so far and building its awkward fun.

  19. Continuing the all-day DakhaBrakha love fest with Alambari
