  1. Wow, I wonder if that’s the same guy from Castro’s gay authors forum.
  2. Back in 2016, a buddy and I went to see Mr. Lahey and Randy from Trailer Park Boys do a comedy show at a VFW in Bristol, Tennessee (the No Pants Unpissed tour). I knew that the TPB cast were friends with the Hip, since they appeared in the video for “The Darkest One.” Well, they were doing a bit on the differences between Canadians and Americans or whatever and during the briefest of pauses, I yelled out “Gord Downie!” John Dunsworth stopped the bit cold and said he wanted to tell the crowd about a great Canadian that many of them had probably never heard of. He talked a little about the Hip for context, but mostly about the work Gordie had done for the First Nations community in documenting the tragedy of their forced cultural assimilation via the residential schools. He then went on to tell them about Gordie‘s illness and how he will always be remembered as a fine musician and a humanitarian. Very cool moment. Postscript: I spent the 10 bucks for the meet and greet after the show and when I went up to them, Randy saw my Tragically Hip T-shirt (quite possibly the only one in all of East Tennessee), grinned, and said, “That was you, wasn’t it?”
  3. Love the Hip. I got into them when I was at Penn State. It was crazy that I could see them in Philly or DC playing at an SRO club in front of 200-300 people. If you got there early enough, you could find yourself standing directly in front of Gordie. Then, when I would catch them in Canada, they would be selling out an NHL arena. I actually got to see them in Ottawa on the Man Machine Poem tour in what would be their second to last show. They were just a fantastic band, and I always smile when I see somebody mentioned them around here. ETA: I just found out a month or two ago that the Hip have a dedicated station on SiriusXM, fwiw.
  4. When you get suspended, do all of your previous posts go away? And do PMs appear to come from ‘Guest’?
  5. Hang in there for just a bit. It seems like Mr. Ham hasn’t been around for quite awhile and may not be part of the forum anymore. If that’s true, I hope he knows that I wish him well and appreciate his friendship and support. I will see if I can figure out how to do another Google docs tracker and invite the others to use that one instead.
  6. Sheesh. 9-36 (1-31 in conference play) during his one chance at head coaching. Sadly, that sounds about right.
  7. Fantastic list. Thanks for all the hard work - I really enjoyed reading it.
  8. I’m a big New Wave fan but I can’t stand Depeche Mode.
  9. The spreadsheet has been really helpful for me - even if that’s not necessarily reflected in my line. Like @Mr. Ham said above, it’s about accountability. I’ve been lying to myself for many years now, and God knows I’ve lied to those around me. But I do not lie to the spreadsheet. I can now see quantitatively the extent of my situation, which will inevitably make it easier to chip away at a little bit at a time.
  10. I just signed up for Discovery Plus and watched the first Bounty Hunters tournament. There are two online at present with more to come.
  11. I had never heard this song until I saw the movie, but I was born in 1977 so I’m kind of a late bloomer in this crowd. ETA: This is also, without question, my favorite bass line to play.
