Re: Longest threads

Who, after all, wants to go review a 50-page thread to see if someone already covered a point before one tries to make that point. You can add me to the column of people who do not understand how lots of little threads vs. one big one affects this problem. Now instead of checking in one place, you ...

Re: Harvey Weinstein

I've never understood what makes a guy think touching himself and groping a woman will lead to a yes. A few subjects for further research: Money; Power; Cocaine; Millennia of Patriarchy; The Complete History of Punishments Given to Men Who Think Touching Themselves and Groping Women Will Lead to a ...

Re: The Giant Wagstaff CD Listening Project Thread

2. Yes, they ripped off a lot of old blues songs. So fucking what? I'm limited to a cell phone for the next week, so can't go in depth with this post, but the issue in my mind is not that they repeatedly ripped off songs (blues and otherwise) but that they tried to claim the compositions as their o...

Re: The Giant Wagstaff CD Listening Project Thread

Charlie Watts, motherfucker. I assume that's what it says on his business card. Honestly though, apples and oranges. It's a good example of why the whole "who is the best _____?" question is so silly (not to mention "best band".) Watts is in a completely different kind of band, ...

Re: MadisonWaterWays

While I agree dumping your dog's dumps in someone else's dumpster is a shitty thing to do (OK, I'll stop) I'm surprised by the idea that garbage cans shouldn't stink or that anyone would be surprised to open one and discover that it does. Mine surely does. That's why I keep it closed. And in the gar...

Re: The Giant Wagstaff CD Listening Project Thread

That is awesome, Bobby. Thanks! I was pretty impressed when a buddy stopped by on Saturday and while we stood chatting in the doorway he heard music from my office and said, "Betty LaVette... Nice." I was pretty impressed he recognized her. "You don't forget a voice like that." T...

Re: The Giant Wagstaff CD Listening Project Thread

BETTY(E) LAVETT(E) -- Betty (sometimes Bettye) LaVette (originally Lavett) knocked around the periphery of actually breaking out as an R&B star for decades and despite several excellent recordings over the years which should have made that happen, she remains obscure for reasons completely inex...

Re: bdog is an idiot

There's a much bigger idiot at work here right now. bdog's heart is in the right place, I think, even if I agree his method sucks. I would say, despite initially thinking I had failed, I seem to have contained the ongoing idiocy of two others in a single thread, so at least they're easy to ignore no...

Re: Random thoughts

Obviously, I'm not winning that battle Seems to me like you already have won that battle, pal. As for all the advice about older appliances being built to last longer, I'm not sure a machine from the mid-'90s qualifies for it. I think the washer/dryer I grew up with lasted 35-40 years but they were...

Re: Low Sodium Recommendations

And you're a Hawkwind snob! Sure, but every time someone mentions a band they like that's not Hawkwind, I don't tell them they're doing it wrong or that what they like isn't even really music so why even bother. It's not that your opinion is bad or wrong or even uninteresting, we've just already ha...
