  1. Ozzy Osbourne announces he has Parkinson's Disease

    Sad news. He did seem frail to me, as well. As someones who has been sidelined by health issues before, I can say that there is a social toll taken by being in bed for a while. The Drs say you're all better, but you aren't as smooth or present in social interactions and maybe your word recall is diminished for a while. Its about regaining ones sense of self and dusting the cobwebs off of the brain. Its about regaining ones bearings as much as it is about the body healing, sometimes. Hopefully Ozzy is just still in the stage where he's 'reentering the world' and will be more lucid going forwards. *more lucid in the sense of Ozzy Osborne, which is its own unique thing.
  2. Joey Kramer sues Aerosmith

    How does Aerosmith manage to come off sounding like assholes every time I hear about them?

    Sounds like your grow room is set up and running smoothly now then? This is the 3rd round of coleus cuttings, already? You are wise. You could also poke her in the broken rib as needed j/k My anise hyssop burger was delicious. It also added the illusion of spiciness, which was neat. No kale though

    Yup. Don't even get me started! lol. There are layers of painful silliness to this. Plus, Tim's cancelled the Walnut Crunch so they're dead to me.
  5. US Politics/Elections Thread

    US is bonkers! By comparison, today in Canada some people are angry that our Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, bought his team donuts at a local bakery. They are mad that he didnt buy the donuts from the popular fast food restaurant, Tim Hortons! Only in Canada, lol

    Yay to Mr Kittys return. I cant imagine seeing him roughed up though. I still hope there wont be a "Rose Garden, brought to you by Hungry Man Microwave Dinners." But Im glad you all get that money. Im so happy to hear that you got whatever that longstanding issue was, off or your chest. And that it let you rest and feel better. Very grateful for no carpeting here. Good, I was really sad to read that you two were at odds. She sounds a bit pushy and you sound more even keeled. That happens to me all the time too - people printing my ideas as there own! Ahhhhhhhh! I hate that. Just like you say, a bit of credit is all one asks. Plus since its your great idea you should be consulted to make it as cool as your vision. Im learning to micro green and sprout today. Its gardening for quitters basically

    American journalist Glenn Greenwald has been charged with cyber crimes in Brazil. He exposed the corruption around the bogus prosecution of Lula, recently. And has long criticized the Brazilian govt for its political imprisonment of Lula. https://www.rt.com/news/478823-glenn-greenwald-charged-cybercrimes-brazil/ https://www.mediaite.com/politics/breaking-glenn-greenwald-charged-with-cybercrimes-in-brazil/ Glenn Greenwald is a man who fears no fash though, (I couldnt find an english video that was brief. Im posting this for the video, not the language. An english language commentary of the event can be found here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D0I9bFEU41I)

    WE?!?!?!?! Id blame you!! j/k . If he starts demanding that I will just have to open the window and let the outdoor cats in. Only one is the friend he thinks they all are, lol. I think he did have a bug. Neither of us slept well over night, but he's napping extra anyways. Seems to be a bit better today. I hope that no MG turf wars break out! That sounds fun and like a big undertaking. It definitely positions you to have some clout. Tell them about the outdoor classroom! Im gonna try mixing diced fresh anise hyssop into my burgers today. Might even top it with kale.
  12. Fortunate Son. Been really enjoying this new Vietnam War era drama series on Gem (a free Canadian streaming service, which is viewable internationally). New episodes Wednesdays, ep 3 is tomorrow. Gems got lots of great stuff, including Anne With an E, Schists Creek, Kims Convenience, Travel Man 48 Hours In, https://gem.cbc.ca/

    Im really sorry to hear that you are under the weather. I hate that feeling when you cant warm up. For me, if Im able, I go with Cambells alphabet soup and an electric blanket. Even then sometimes it just doesnt work though, does it? I hope the bug is passing quick. Is your daughter feeling better? My other cure is double layered socks - normal tube socks underneath thick, fluffy, winter socks. That with a toque. Winter socks and toques might not really be a thing there though I guess. I hope tomorrows warm weather will get you set if you're not already feeling better. I got Beaker to play finally - chewing a package from the mail, his favourite. He'd been up and interacting a bit earlier but had two snoozes in his hiding place, instead of one. When he asked to be held, he didnt even swat any of the Nativity figures which is his second favourite pastime. The vet didnt have much to say beyond what you already mentioned, said to monitor everything. I half think he might have gotten used to me being laid out and now feels ignored?? I dunno. I think he peed twice. I feel like a terrible owner because I cant seem to recall how many times he normally pees. I swapped out the litter so I can be sure about each pee. Thanks for asking. He's on the table next to my desk now, hanging out with me. I hope you feel better

    I totally thought you were joking and was having a good laugh until I suddenly realized that it made perfect sense and you probably weren't joking. Here he is, just one of 1000's of grown men playing dress-up, cos playing as soldiers today in Virginia.
  15. Infectious Groove - A Music Podcast w/ RussTCB

    Listening now. Its great! You know I will be keen on those Floyd discussions you mentioned are coming! I love the idea of just sharing in the joy of music as a theme. This is exactly how I like to get turned on to new music (or books). I did have one thing to mention but its just a preference of mine is all. I would prefer to have at least brief introductions to anyone whose voice I was hearing, earlier on in the show. Maybe I just missed them though. Love the talk about royalties and supporting artists! A request: - As a fellow Sorkin fan Ive been curious about the composer who did some of his TV shows, WG Snuffy Walden. Snuffy also did the gorgeous acoustic guitar work on Wonder Years. Im not sure if talking Snuffy would fit your format, but Id be interested. Trent and Atticus were well recognized for scoring Sorkins' Social Network too of course. Maybe theres a Sorkin music well to be drawn from?

    The Virginia neo nazi gun rally is under way. Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you the Red-Pilled (except the ones in masks who must be antifa thugs??) I think the world would be a better place if someone just Blue-Pilled these guys instead
  17. Floyd Discussion

    Ive got the funniest anxiety about you giving it a close listen and just being like 'meh, wtf was soon talking about?' Agreed about Paranoid Eyes being the most underrated track on there. Not Now John probably captures my attention the least - so imho a strange choice for a single. I dont skip it or anything though. I got thinking about the Final Cut EP/ Video and I guess the tracks used for the videos were selected for the Falklands War narrative, but imho its an odd representation of the album as a whole. Id love to see how Paranoid Eyes would have been depicted in that video. I dont mind the 'list' songs either. Actually, singing along to them in a hazy basement with other greasy 14 year olds is likely what solidified my enduring love of Pink Floyd, lol. But yeah, when Rogers lyrics and affect are lent to a well written more traditional piece its just too good!

    Happy Martin Luther King Day. I'll let him speak for himself. Here, an excerpt from Letter From a Birmingham Jail... "First, I must confess that over the past few years I have been gravely disappointed with the white moderate. I have almost reached the regrettable conclusion that the Negro's great stumbling block in his stride toward freedom is not the White Citizen's Counciler or the Ku Klux Klanner, but the white moderate, who is more devoted to "order" than to justice; who prefers a negative peace which is the absence of tension to a positive peace which is the presence of justice; who constantly says: "I agree with you in the goal you seek, but I cannot agree with your methods of direct action"; who paternalistically believes he can set the timetable for another man's freedom; who lives by a mythical concept of time and who constantly advises the Negro to wait for a "more convenient season." Shallow understanding from people of good will is more frustrating than absolute misunderstanding from people of ill will. Lukewarm acceptance is much more bewildering than outright rejection. I had hoped that the white moderate would understand that law and order exist for the purpose of establishing justice and that when they fail in this purpose they become the dangerously structured dams that block the flow of social progress. I had hoped that the white moderate would understand that the present tension in the South is a necessary phase of the transition from an obnoxious negative peace, in which the Negro passively accepted his unjust plight, to a substantive and positive peace, in which all men will respect the dignity and worth of human personality. Actually, we who engage in nonviolent direct action are not the creators of tension. We merely bring to the surface the hidden tension that is already alive. We bring it out in the open, where it can be seen and dealt with. Like a boil that can never be cured so long as it is covered up but must be opened with all its ugliness to the natural medicines of air and light, injustice must be exposed, with all the tension its exposure creates, to the light of human conscience and the air of national opinion before it can be cured. In your statement you assert that our actions, even though peaceful, must be condemned because they precipitate violence. But is this a logical assertion? Isn't this like condemning a robbed man because his possession of money precipitated the evil act of robbery? Isn't this like condemning Socrates because his unswerving commitment to truth and his philosophical inquiries precipitated the act by the misguided populace in which they made him drink hemlock?" https://www.africa.upenn.edu/Articles_Gen/Letter_Birmingham.html

    Oh, okay. Thanks for info. Shoot. Well, I did luck out and saw him pee just after reading this but I will monitor that and call the vet either way. Poor guy. He's still really needy. Thats true about the apple juice! I think you said you werent really looking to date necessarily, but it does kinda sound like you and Marcus might date? -27 here currently and y'all have flowering plants and growing sedum. Jealous again.

    He sure does have a personality . Speaking of him, he started whimpering really quietly at around 4am. I got up, gave him some food and a pet but it didn't help. He's still kinda needy and disoriented now. I cant figure it out? I love the beekeepers vibe; he tells you theyve produced 40 gallons and doesnt give you even one of those little breakfast restaurant sized, single serving jar to try some. Thats actually like me with my harvest I guess though. You'll get your mojo back on the in ball machines. I bet the Guns one will be good to you. You should try covering your eyes and ears when you play - I have it on good authority that this can lead to pinball wizardry.
  23. I really dont like the arrangement they played. And it seems Axl and The Boss couldnt get off stage fast enough. A very cool part of the story of Axl though.
