    The Live Music Thread

    Cowboy Junkies last night, at a nice theater near the town in which I grew up. In all the years I liked them (and used to lust and love after Margo Timmins in their early days), had never seen them before and it was a great experience. And while they (we all) have aged....they were still so beautiful and so cool. The only negative was some folks in front of me, a bit down the row, that were talking loudly and one was on her phone a lot. I actually took a moment to chew them out quietly but ultra-firmly, getting a pat on the back from the guy immediately behind them.

    What are you listening to Part the Third

    I just downloaded the Fela Kuti live album with Ginger Baker, hope to listen soon.....too many social things planned by the wife, it's tough trying to be a reclusive social hermit! 😃

    What are you listening to Part the Third

    Actually enjoyed this a bit! Thought it would be way over-the-top a la William Shatner, but it was kind of regular music. The difference was I really liked the song selection, some great New Wave from the 80's - Echo & The Bunnymen, Lords Of The New Church, Jesus & Mary Chain - as well as other hits from 70's onward. Nothing really special, but just enjoyed hearing the songs.....

    RIP Joseph Wilson. Also admired his desire to do the right thing. Showed (once again) a very nasty side of politics, with everything he and his wife had to endure....

  12. That's actually quite cool..... Until My Favorite Game came along I guess they were pretty unknown. Must have been great to see them earlier.....

    My rare post to this thread..... Bean-less Chilli, made with "alterna-meat" of Ground Camel. Really quite yummy, even as leftovers....

    I think I've been to that store! Looks quite familiar behind the "cage." Could be wrong, though.....especially since it was so long ago. I was there in the very earliest days of DAP's, and they were having the debut of the Diamond MP3 player (can't remember if the first model was called RIO or not). The oddest part was that the unit was available in the US before Japan. And, for less money.....one of the lovely ladies showing it was surprised when I converted the US price to Yen and showed her....
