Well ####.  I really liked Guy Who Likes Bad Music.  We hardly knew ye. 


 

So did I, but wondering if his username checked out too much and did him in - like professing his love for Kajagoogoo or something.

Good idea.  Thanks.  

I do NOT have any wet, stinky food around.  I'd probably just catch a rat, anyway.

I nabbed this guy tonight. I think he was dumped in the neighborhood about 5 months ago. Whatever his story is, he has been a stray for months.  He runs if you approach him. He is getting vaccinated and his balls cut off tomorrow morning. 💉 ✂️

Ohhhh, isn't he cute?!  That pink nose!  Sorry about your balls, buddy!*

Are you sure he's unadoptable?  Who checks that stuff?  He's so scared, poor guy.

I'm sure that the shelter will not take him. His temperament is too wild in the trap. I only see this guy at night, and he doesn't come within 30 feet of me. He is welcome to befriend a neighbor around here. Someone might could work with him and gain his trust over time, but as I said, he only comes out at night right now. He has to survive the coyotes around here, but he has so far over the last few months. He will get neutered today and get his rabies and distemper. He will also be dewormed, and given one flea treatment. He will also get his left ear clipped at the top. I'll let him go right where I trapped him tomorrow morning and wish him well. That's the best I can do for him right now, but his womanizing days are over.

Not sure how Pitchfork rates the albums, but I've gotten through the T.Swift and Arkells albums so far and liked both. 

Will probably listen to another at work today.  

He/she was just here yesterday - I'd send out the bat signal.

I think Joe is a gem and I would wish my kids to grow up with his values.  

 

He seems like a genuinely nice guy. However, from what I have gleaned from perusing the Politics Forum, the owner/founder of this site is pretty far right and Joe is pretty religious. I think those two things likely lead to a lot of stuff being acceptable that IMO shouldn't be. But, this isn't my site, I just post here so c'est la vie.

I'm fairly apolitical, but I'd stay out of there even if I wasn't.  

Does anyone really believe they are going to change some stranger's mind who is as entrenched in their beliefs as they are?

I can think of a handful of times in my life where it has happened - but those were the early days of the internet. In the current environment probably not. However, as much as I have tried to stop myself, I do get drawn into the COVID19 threads. These are political - but shouldn't be. I am pretty sad/disgusted/angry/frustrated regarding how the situation was handled and the various "acceptable opinions" on the subject. COVID19 threads rip the hope out of me. They are a microcosm of why we can't have nice things.

Back to music, I listened to a random album on my walk today.  Rolled a 32 and a 2 so it was one from @simey's island.

Word of Mouth - The Kinks (1984) 

This was a new one for me and my expectations weren't high going in.  The other post-1975 Kinks albums I've listened to in the past were uneven and I always approach 80s records by classic artists with some trepidation.  But this was a really good album with a solid collection of mostly rockin' songs.  I'll add it to my Kinks rotation for sure.

Ray had just turned 40 and hasn't forgotten how to write beautiful songs.  Dave's song "Living on a Thin Line" is one of the standout tracks.   Longtime drummer Mick Avory finally had enough of the Davies brothers and left the band during recording of Word of Mouth.  He appears on about half the songs but the guy they brought in to replace him has a nice Charlie Watts vibe in his playing.

The eightiesness of the production is mostly kept in check.  There are some drum machines and synths and more reverb than usual but nothing ridiculous.  In addition to the songs Simey repped, I liked the wistful "Summer's Gone"

The Kinks had eight albums drafted which left a bunch of great ones onshore.  Preservation Act 1 has always been a personal favorite.

He was still putting out some excellent material back in 2006 with the album Other People's Lives. Solid B+/A- material with classic Kinks' signatures peppered throughout.

I'll give you a few records I think you may like based on your apparent tastes. Not sure which ones you are already familiar with but I'll list five and you can choose a few from that list and a few on your own (or randomly):

Sister Sweetly - Big Head Todd and the Monsters

Harlem River Blues - Justin Townes Earle

$1.99 Romances (Live at Tri Studios) - God Street Wine

Between The Buttons - The Rolling Stones

Southern Rock Opera - Drive-By Truckers

 

I used the search function after reviewing some chicken scratch notes to see if anyone dropped a reference to Big Head Todd.

Checks out.

Arc Angels, not so lucky.

So many gaps in my thread knowledge.  Glad to see Midnight Oil drafted here.  Cant say for sure, bt it might have been the first CD I ever purchased,  Petty's Full Moon Fever is in the running too.

On the flipside (pun intended, I suppose), around the same time, if I had to guess at what was the last album I ever purchased, I'd go with Mason Ruffner's Gypsy Blood, which I would definitely draft if we had a do-over; a good album with two super-heavyweight tunes

Gypsy Blood

I remember Fruit Bats discussion earlier so some might be interested in Bonny Light Horseman, a new project of Eric D. Johnson, along with Anais Mitchell and Josh Kaufman, who produced that Grateful Dead tribute I drafted.

Hell yea, this is awesome.

I believe in education and growth and knowledge and facts and science and research and academia and study and history and the ability for those things to shape policies but to be fair I am also very much not American, so to expect those things to have meaning on a US based message board was probably my bad.

It doesn't get more fitting than this- I just loaded up on gin and stuff to try 5-6 different gin cocktails.   The main reason for the trip was to get stuff to make a Negroni because of the discussions with @Abrantes.   I also got stuff for a gimlet, martinis, something called a Floradora, and a couple variations of a gin and tonic.   Anyway, I also did another randomizer since I was done with NV's island, and looks like I will be visiting Abrantes island next.  I haven't looked, but I am sure it will be a lot of stuff that is new to me, so I will be trying a Negroni tonight, and probably spinning an album that is new to me too.

In my time here, my mind has definitely changed on some issues. It wasn't entirely because of some grand argument a poster made. However, there are posters I have read here that have made me think differently about things. However, most posts are just a personal venting more than any attempt to reverse the opinions of others.

oof.  i better try to listen to a few songs from 2020 then.  

Haim was pretty good, and I really dug the Phoebe Bridgers album, but besides that and RTJ4, I can't think of much I've listened to this year.

:suds: Welcome to the island, GB! Hope you dig the Negronis! I've been lax on the album listening experiment (my bad, I do plan on getting back to it), though the shuffle's been killer this past couple of days.

Tried a few gin cocktails over the last couple nights, and I guess while I like gin, I am not fond of the bitter+bitter mixed drinks.  Gin and Tonics and Negronis are a hard pass for me, but I could drink Gimlets all night, and something called a Floradora was damn tasty too.
