It is raining so hard out. There is a retention pond that has gold fish in it, and whenever consecutive days of rain or a big storm comes through, it overflows into this small area with dirt and grass, and the gold fish spill over and get stuck.  Once the water recedes in a few days they are doomed. It is going to rain until Saturday. I know I shouldn't do it with all this weird health stuff going on, but I'm sure I'll be out there Saturday with a tank net and rain boots scooping them up to toss them back into the retention pond so they don't die. I need to put something in that section that has small holes where the water can get through, but not the fish. We'll see. I'd get my friend Steve to help, but he hasn't been practicing social distancing, so I don't want him near me. :lol:

Very kind of you.  Drink some hot chocolate afterward.  That should keep you warm and safe.  At least you don't live near those dams in Michigan.  Yuck.

It's not quite a match.  Hey Jude has some tracks omitted from original US albums that aren't on either volume of Past Masters.  The latter has all kinds of other cool junk too.

Yes, not exact match.

Ah, I was wrong, then.  I thought there was a rule against compilations, which Eephus was breaking with joy and impunity.  

He is bending the hell out of it though, which is why I compared him to Belichik about a week ago.

Except Eephus seems much more personable.

Wow. A little shuked by your Gish selections.  

I’ve been noticing that my favorite tracks on older albums have sometimes changed, as the world keeps turning, I get older, and maybe bored with some things

When I saw his gish selections it made me think of that

I like both songs quite a lot, it's just there are three other songs on that album that I think are super elite upper tier.

11.32 All Eyez On Me by 2Pac (1996)

There are 2 or 3 celebrity deaths I remember from my early teen years: Kurt Cobain and Tupac. Kids coming to school crying, the gossip of what "really happened", the total shock that ran through the students and the total bewilderment from the teachers who had probably never heard of either. I was a white Catholic school kid from the suburbs, but the themes of loyalty to friends, distrust of authority, anger and hopes for a better world despite being kind of a #### really made a lot of sense for us. Pac isn't the most gifted rapper, he doesn't have a big bag of tricks. His music works because of it's raw authenticity and his total commitment to every track.

11.34 Metallica - Master of Puppets (1986)

I get it - know your demo's. But the best thrash metal of all time in round 11. I spose I can cross-off consider getting cute with your Metallica selection from the list.

Battery

Master of Puppets

Should really beef up that long song shtick too :thumbup:

@RedmondLonghorn

Seminal album for me to discover when I was in middle school. So much range and angst to unleash.

I thought Bury Me was a good entry pick to the album, and Snail is a sentimental fave

11.35 I Do Not Want What I Haven’t Got – Sinead O’Connor (1990)
I just realized I don’t have a single female artist in my desert island stash so far. Time to rectify that.

So that Prince song that she did on this album that became a big hit, you know the one…it’s about my fourth or fifth favorite song on this disc.

Sinead’s voice is amazing and I have always dug her “F*** You” attitude. I am just a big fan, period.

Songs:
The Emperor’s New Clothes
Black Boys on Mopeds

I haven't updated playlist.  For me sniping you- I will let you pick the songs. 

Naw. You're good. They are both really good songs. I din't recognize the titles at first.

I am just a huge fan of Siva and I am One.

Round 11 Imagine - John Lennon (1971)

I got shut out from most of the Beatles I'd want and the best ex-Beatles solo album so I'll take the second best ex-Beatles solo album. I've always been a John guy anyway.

Gimme Some Truth

Jealous Guy

 

Having listened to approx. 862 McCartney post-Beatles albums to work on my rankings, I'm eager to get to John next, like this great stuff here. Still have five more Paul albums first.  :(

Big fan of "The Thing That Should Not Be", too.
