    Fear is a disease. Get rid of it or you're doomed for failure. Though I did hear Leronlimab cures it. This is NOT an investment. It is a Grand Slam Home Run or a Strike Out gamble in the stock market. Odds higher today for the GS than back in December to boot, but the strike out is still within the realm of possibilities. The chance to be in a position that goes from $.30 - $5.00 is EXTREMELY rare. Going from $.30-$20+...that's something you might not ever see again. BP spoke like 10 days ago and it seemed after that people were creaming like a 9th grader invited to the SR Prom. Was that all BS? To me the main thing going is why would this guy risk his reputation on an OTC company that no one knows about if the science isn't there - especially when he has seen it in action. The future of these results are unknown to us right now. There is no cipher to magically uncover the clues. Home Run or Strike out. It's not for everyone.

    Do you ever stop talking in generalizations and platitudes? Good lord. Yes, there were some good questions asked (and a lot of nonsense too). What Barr did with Stone was an assault on the administration of justice. Full stop.

    This room is too small for all of us, we're going stir crazy. Was much better when we had the run of the stock thread and were able to make life miserable for the non CDiddy citizens there and a few other posts about Gold or fast food chains were allowed and broke things up. Thinking we should move over to the COVID thread...they won't know what hit them.

    AS some may or may not know we built our forever home this year. We closed June 29th and moved in July 9th. Settling in slowly but surely. My previous home which I built and owned for 11 years......put it on the market last Monday at $564,999 (4 bedroom 3 bathroom one story on the water with a pool). I went to contract and got full asking price 6 hours after it went on MLS. 6 hours.

    I've been in denial for at least a dozen or so rounds. There is one particular cover from 2018 I badly want for my jukebox, but over this? Round 28 Aretha Franklin - RESPECT (1967) I can't. I just can't. Otis may have nailed the original, but Aretha's cover has spanned generations and he just can't compete with that. He admitted as much at Monterrey. And that's why I had to move my 50 year window to 67-16.

    19.04 -- Predator, Action. Legacy Predator was ranked 4th in a 2015 Rolling Stone reader poll of the all-time best action films [see link above]. .... The success of Predator led 20th Century Fox to finance three direct sequels over the next thirty-one years, each by different directors, starting with Predator 2 released in 1990. Arnold Schwarzenegger has not reprised his role as Dutch Schaefer in the subsequent sequels; he had been made offers to return, but declined on all of these occasions. The success of Predator resulted in numerous novels, comic books, video games, toys, and other media and merchandise. A number of these began appearing under the Alien vs. Predator title, which brought the Predator creatures together with the creatures of the Alien films, and a film series followed with Alien vs. Predator in 2004 and Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem in 2007.

    19.13. Field of Dreams- fantasy Not just a baseball movie but it’s more in line with it’s a wonderful life. It’s a baseball equals life masterpiece. It’s a movie that speaks to us all about unresolved issues, lost opportunities, missed connections and chances of redemption. one of my all time favorites. My father passed when I was in high school and was my biggest fan when it came to sports and who wouldn’t want to have “a catch” with their dad one more time. About 5 or 6 years ago I took my son to the field of dreams site and we stepped on that field and had our own catch and it is as an important memory to me as anything.

    I just find it funny you tend to be Coronas best spokesman but want to clutch your pearls when we don’t wail and gnash our teeth when karma reaches out and touches some of those folks. Hell I thought that was the conservative way. Welfare recipients, incarcerated folks, single moms, drug addicts, people with no health care, uneducated? Screw em it’s their own fault. I’ve heard it over and over and over. But nooo some donkey who couldn’t care for himself or his countrymen by taking basic precautions? Who in fact might have encouraged others to not take basic precautions? I’m not having a party or celebrating but I’ve got plenty of other outlets for my compassion right now.

    I don't know about this fancy Vo2 velociraptor threshold and whatnot...but I do know I had my physical today- and I'm at 184lbs. I haven't weighed myself in ages, but even in my IM days, I was usually a few pounds heavier. Since then, I plateaued at 200+/- without exercising (other than bike commute and walking) and was content to sit in the mid to high 190s. Either the runnings helping, or I have the sweat challenge wrapped up.

    People not taking this virus even remotely seriously, for whatever the reason, is why the U.S. is handling this so poorly. Doubt that it’s because of headlines, but what’s embarrassing is our outcomes and where we are at the end of July compared with other countries. It’s the cavalier attitudes on display that have me concerned, not the “headlines”.

    Lost in all the bickering about how much violence is occurring or not occurring in Portland is the fact that as it pertains to the actions of the Federal Government, it is completely irrelevant how much violence is occurring. What occurs on the streets of Portland or any other city are the concerns of the local and state governments. The Federal Government can protect its own property (which should be done only by Federal Protection Services officers wearing clear uniforms and not by any other government office, and should be confined solely to Federal property) but otherwise they should not be intervening at all in a state matter without the consent of that state's government. Any other action by the Federal Government in this matter is fundamentally anti-American. The fascist actions of the Trump Administration are, of course, a major issue and should be strongly opposed. But we shouldn't allow ourselves to get bogged down in squabbling over details that don't affect the immoral nature of what the Trump Administration is doing. Nor should be so focused on those details that we become distracted from the fact that we are now at 150,000 COVID deaths and their is still no nationally coordinated effort to combat the pandemic (which is an issue which, unlike the actions in Portland, would be an appropriate role for the Federal Government).

    My niece in Wisconsin asked my daughter to put together a Pop playlist for her to listen to. She's approaching it like a true nerd with one song from each of the 14 years since her cousin was born plus one song from each decade since the 50s and seven wild card songs from any year. Not enough dice but that's my girl.

    And, how would that look? If Trump were to show up the model of dignity and grace, and the democrats "slapped that hand", who comes off as petty and childish?
  33. 7 points - Spirit of '76 - The Alarm (1985) Rock 'n Roll moves on quickly and the New Wave generally had little to do with the Boss. You could argue that Springsteen moved towards the trend with his sound and videos more than the opposite. There were some early 80s Power Pop covers of Springsteen songs by Greg Kihn and Any Trouble. There were a bunch of American bands that tried to follow his footsteps from the bars to arenas. But by and large, the artists getting played on MTV other than the Boss and Mellencamp didn't sound much like Springsteen. The Alarm was the closest I could find to 80s UK music that had any clear connections to Springsteen. Spirit of '76 has the harmonica/piano intro, nostalgic verse and anthemic chorus of classic Springsteen. Frontman Mike Peters is a Rock 'n Roll lifer who still toured a lot until the pandemic. Saw him a few times and he always put on a great show. The stunt he pulled in 2004 with The Poppy Fields is so good they made a movie out of it. I couldn't bring myself to draft Frankie Goes to Hollywood's cover of Born to Run.

    This is another album I love and thus decided to maximize the A-side/B-side situation. The A-side needs no explanation, y'all have heard it hundreds of times already. The B-side is one of my favorites for its relentlessness, which the live version that was used for the flip side turns up to 11. Round 29: Pearl Jam -- Daughter Year: 1993 Album: Vs. B-side: Blood (live) (language NSFW)

    Quite a few people seem to be wandering into the CYDY discussion thread that apparently don't want CYDY discussion. We're on a holding pattern until news, so discussion is what is going to fill this thing up. If that's not your jam and you just want news then put in a google news alert for CYDY and be done with it.

    It actually reminds me of a time when I was 5 years old. I have a summer birthday, but even 2/3 of the way through kindergarten I already knew that I got the raw end of the deal - never to have cake in class and have everyone sing happy birthday. So, one week in Sunday School, I announced that my birthday was the next weekend. I did so without shame or a second thought. It was my dad's birthday, and every good lie has an element of truth to it. Sure enough, the following Sunday I was feted with cake and being the center of attention. Sure, my parents were a little confused when they came to pick me up, and then embarrassed - but life was glorious. I got to celebrate my birthday in a class with other kids! Who knew that, even at just 5 years old, I had what it took to be President of the United States of America.

    These images are horrifying. I don’t know what the guy did, but I can’t imagine it justified this kind of response. That people seem to be celebrating the militarized response here is very disturbing.

    Alright, let's go to the more "popular" route here. One that NEVER gets old for me despite the weak daughter story line. 18.16: HEAT - 90s? 'cuz she's got a GREAT ###, and you've got your head ALL THE WAY UP IT!! Honestly, I think I am going to go with a definition of "gangsters" as a group of violent criminals, and this will probably end up in that category and I will move City of God to foreign, but let's put it in 90s for now. This one grabs me from jump with the kick ### heist of the cash truck and never let's go.

    To be fair, Trump didn't go to McCain or Cummings funerals either. I suppose vindictiveness, even in death, is part of Trumps brand.

  50. 6 points - Further On (Up the Road) - Johnny Cash (2006) Cash first covered Springsteen in 1983 but this one comes from the posthumously released American Recordings V. The Boss' original was a mid-tempo rocker on The Rising LP. He must like the song because it was one of the few originals performed with the Seeger Sessions Band. Cash slows the song down a lot and delivers the lyrics with the gravitas of the boatman on the Styx
