Re: Music for the Masses

I don't dislike Collins' music. The songs he's best known for are way overproduced, typical for that era, but I don't grimace if one pops up on the radio. Oh yeah, and I haven't watched the video and probably won't. It's mildly cute. From a channel by a couple of kids who had their hearing surgical...

Re: Random covid-19 observations

I basically spend the entire summer getting angry every time I see someone in long sleeves, I hate people who aren't hot all the time, I hate them so much. On bright sunny days, I wear light long sleeved shirts to keep the sun off my arms if I have to be outdoors. It may be warmer, but it reduces t...

Re: Speaking in tongues (the "learning languages" thread)

The thing about Spanish verbs is that there are classes of verbs which all conjugate in the same way, so learning to recognize which class the verb belongs to, and other verbs in that class, is key to correctly memorizing them IMHO.

Re: Podcasts - Watcha listening to?

A) I'm into actually doing something podcasty with the gryllitariat. Interesting idea tbh, premise being many/most of us haven't actually met.

2: I'm currently enjoying Red Scare podcast and will probably get onto their Patreon at some point.

Re: Whither the GOP? (post-Trump edition)

The Lincoln Project is definitely getting under the skin of the right. I’m pretty sure NR has more articles attacking them than attacking Biden. One of which was where a former senior editor was saying that you can tell a lot about them by who funds the Lincoln Project. Is NR now on the Trump Train...

But the actors and writing are solid, and I love a period drama.

I generally agree with Jadagul, and with Jason's take above.

Pepper jack is good on burgers, so is ketchup and relish, or mustard, but not all at once. A swipe of mayo on a toasted bun is good too, instead of butter.

Early crops will be rotting in the fields in less than a few weeks most likely. I wonder how soon we will see that become a political issue, or if they just give farmers cash/insurance payouts and the rest of us just suck up higher prices.

Yeah, there were people there before it became a prison, and they didn't leave, despite the best efforts of the gaolers and inmates.
