  1. Thanx for asking! Yes, wifey is home and doing well. She had a bile duct blockage called cholangitis. They did an endoscopy but she had stones too big, so she will have to go back and have her gallbladder removed soon. Her fever topped 105 and O2 went down to 86 during her stay, and she was in the ICU for almost a week. I was scared, and spent extra time researching movies to pass the time. Judges - please read this and award me bonus points.

  2. 27.05 - The Big Lebowski - 90's Movie It's so very 90's to be released to little fanfare, then explode in popularity later (see Shawshank). But the Dude and company did it, and even spawned a religion! Like many Coen Brothers films, it's hard to pin down exactly what it is and why we like it so much, but we do. To me, this is their second best movie after Fargo, but I enjoy watching this one more, if that makes any sense. @Doug B

  3. If you're gonna mainline '80s fluff, it might as well be the good stuff. Round 36: Bananarama -- Cruel Summer Year: 1984 Album: Bananarama I don't care for the B-side. This was released as a single in the UK in 1983, but the single in the US and the album everywhere didn't come out until 1984. It took off in the US after it was included on the Karate Kid soundtrack. And with that, I am done with the '80s.

  4. 34.03: Bitter Sweet Symphony - The Verve (1997) WILD CARD!!!! I have gone through 33 consecutive year picks ...no more. The 90s are such a #### show, I have now shed these burdensome, and overly restrictive, self-inflicted rules and give myself permission to roam free and unencumbered throughout the remaining years of this song journey. enjoy this soaring one-hit wonder.

  5. 35.03: You Get What You Give - New Radicals (1998) One of the musical highlights of the decade. Really expected more of them. But man, this song is infectious in a great way. The album was released on October 20, 1998, and was well received by music critics, who praised the record for its wide range of atypical influences for a modern pop rock album, such as Todd Rundgren, World Party and Hall & Oates, and compared its funk and soul-influenced upbeat pop rock to the early work of Prince and Mick Jagger. Much of the media attention "You Get What You Give" received

  6. Once again, someone posts a link or video about some "protestor" acting horribly and you'll get responses from "the other side" saying, yep, that's inappropriate, shouldn't happen, wish that wasn't there. But a link gets posted showing actual overt racism and.......:crickets: No one from "the other side" can chime in and say "yep, that's pretty ugly". The ONLY response is "well yeah, but it's such a small minority". Do you think pointing out how ugly that is will make you sympathetic to BLM or something? Is that the reason for essentially never acknowledging that kind of awful be

  7. 27.04 — The Untouchables, Gangster. The Untouchables is a 1987 American crime film directed by Brian De Palma, produced by Art Linson, written by David Mamet, and based on the book of the same name (1957). The film stars Kevin Costner, Charles Martin Smith, Andy García, Robert De Niro, and Sean Connery, and follows Eliot Ness (Costner) as he forms the Untouchables team to bring Al Capone (De Niro) to justice during Prohibition. The Grammy Award–nominated score was composed by Ennio Morricone and features period music by Duke Ellington. The Untouchables premiered on June 2, 1987 in Ne

  14. This is the kind of thing many of us were trying to warn people about back in 2016 - Trump is incapable of performing the role of President, he's both incompetent and corrupt. Our only hope was that nothing major happened during his term. It was a huge error in judgement to vote for him then, it'll be an even greater error in judgement to vote for him now.

  15. Don't worry, you're not missing anything by not reading that article. I read that one and a few more on right wing or religious websites and not a single one of them even explained what AOC's point was or why she was randomly attacking some Catholic Saint. It wasn't until I looked at her Twitter that I was able to piece the story together. Every state gets to have two statues in the Capitol building. AOC posted on twitter about how they were almost all white men, even in a place like Hawaii. That has been twisted by @Sand into her saying that St. Damien was "despicable." It's total nonse

  16. Filling out my 80s with a song that was big time ballsy at the time. Yo Mama selects: 37.ym - The Ramones - Bonzo Goes to Bitburg (1985) b-side is Daytime Dilemma (Dangers of Love) This song was written to criticize Reagan’s controversial official state visit to the Bitburg cemetery for German WWII soldiers. The controversy was due to the fact that also buried there were a number of Waffen-SS soldiers. The incredible troll job came from calling the president Bonzo after the chimp he starred with in Bedtime for Bonzo back in the 50s. You've got t

  17. My big take away from last night was Dr Patterson saying that the m/m patients issue was more immunological than virological. That’s why we see such a big reduction SAEs, because LL prevents the body from raising IL-6/8 and then rantes iirc this would also explain the many different ways LL can help other diseases, because it’s not disease specific, but cell specific.

  18. This should have been a much bigger hit than it was, but in 1978, if you weren't disco, you had an uphill battle on the charts. The B-side is one of Oates' best (and the whole album is excellent). Round 37: Daryl Hall and John Oates -- It's a Laugh Year: 1978 Album: Along the Red Ledge B-Side: Serious Music

  24. One of the byproducts of "rugged individualism" is a separation from the community as a whole. When individuals spend more time building up and protecting their own interests they deprioritize everyone around them and forget that it's the community that got us here, both as a country and as a species. There's a guy named Dan Buettner who worked for National Geographic and went on a quest to find the longest living populations in the world (Blue Zones as they call them). A lot of his work is based around health, but they also looked into "happiness" and they found that these areas overlap

  26. NEVER use cheap ink. It has to be the perfectly correct formula to work with the printer. You will ruin your printer by using cheap ink. HP came up with the patent for laser jet printing where they would eat the cost of the printer just to corner the market on ink cartridges. Its been a successful model. They even gave away the patent to other companies just so they could get the ink market. Hard copy market is getting smaller, people can get away with not having a printer. If you don't use your printer much you can get hard copies from the cloud from EFI's PrintMe service.

  30. This song was culled from the master tapes of a military project created by servicemen while stationed in Germany. Largely not credited and forgotten, the servicemen were covering funk and soul standards of the time. If that sounds like a [redacted] story except for the operation of [redacted] within garage rock parameters, then you're probably on the right track. Originally, this was by The Fuzz. But this is all soul -- not rock and roll. Round 36.xx Artist: East Of Underground Song: I Love You (For All Seasons) Year: 1971

  39. On other CCR5 competitors: most are small molecule with toxicity. There's others on the way, especially once you show proof of concept. Just have to be prepared on the your strengths and weaknesses. On upcoming review of CD12: S/C better metric "deaths". Explained NP stating there's a lot of deaths as "unfortunately a good thing for statistical analysis." On Primary vs Secondary on Phase 2: Following precedence set with Remdisivr which changed primary endpoint. Either one (1st or 2nd) can get you an EUA." BP hasn't even seen the new shirts. Haha.

  42. 35.ee - Never Be Enough Time - Joe Grushecky & The Houserockers (1995) The Pittsburgh-based Brick Alley Band was one of the blue collar bar bands who got record deals in the late 70s when Springsteen was the next big thing. Their label rechristened them as The Iron City Houserockers which was shortened to just The Houserockers for their fourth album. Frontman Joe Grushecky went solo in the mid-80s as Joey G. but by the time this album came out in 1995, the Houserockers had been brought back together with Grushecky given top billing. None of the names really worked but the band has

  46. BP about his article. Going under the peer review process. The board had questions about: - Lack of control data. Got other critical samples to analyze for "control". - Addressed CD14 data from other articles. - Questions about outcomes - patient population. - 3 month publication is fast in normal circumstances. 6-12 months usually. So basically it's going through the typical peer review process.
