Re: Random covid-19 observations

Lake of the Ozarks and Ocean City (Maryland) were both trending on Twitter yesterday, because it was Memorial Day weekend and those vacation spots were packed with people as usual for this time of year, zero effort at social distancing, nobody wearing a mask ... sigh. I can't speak about Maryland, ...

Re: Small joys and random good things

Ellie's post reminded me this thread existed. I meant to find a thread to post a small random good thing last week. As Facebook will do, it suggested a few people whom I might be interested in 'friending' and up popped the author George Pelecanos. For those who've never heard about him, he's a D.C....

Re: tio's neato nature thread

I have a bird feeder on my balcony, and my couch is set so that when I'm stretched out on it, I'm looking at the feeder. I'm perhaps 10 feet away from the birds themselves. For several weeks, a cardinal couple have been visiting the feeder several times a day. They're very alert birds, and when they...

Re: Random covid-19 observations

I can't speak to the rest of the country, but I can say that here in the Midwest, in a supposedly cosmopolitan city, the refusal to wear a mask is so widespread that I'm surprised when I do see mask-wearers. This is even true among a few cow-orkers, who work in a health-care field. My disgust at the...

I've not seen Tannenbaums, but I've enjoyed most of the Wes Anderson stuff I've seen. Life Aquatic was good, although it dragged a bit. Moonrise Kingdom is pretty wonderful. And Isle of Dogs is, of course, superb.

Which could be that they ended up being pieces of shit that didn't really work and delivering on the contract would've put the new owners on the hook for a fuckton of liability.

Re: Your COVID-19 Playlist

I'm not sure of the corona tie-in... If there's an impending death, or fear of death, or panic/insanity motif, it went on the list. Some of them are pretty tenuous. And then Daughter because in the face of zombiepocalypse, that's just good clean fun. Fair enough. And Iron Maiden is almost never the...

The End of the World as We Know I-REM. Obvious, but necessary. Land of Confusion-Genesis. Not directly relevant, but somehow, the feel is right. Seasons in the Abyss-Slayer. Again, a feel thing. Kind of Blue-Miles Davis. If you're going to go out, might as well do it with some really good music play...

Angry FB leftists are saying these pols should go to prison for life. Odd how their concerns about America's prison population and incarceration culture go out the window when their ox is gored.
The prison outrage applies to people. These are politicians we're talking about.

I think the idea is that a different vote implies very different values. The kind that can queer a relationship. Not saying that view is right-just that that's the thinking.

Saw his limo go by twice today. (He flew in to the airbase I'm on this week). Got a glimpse of the sillhouette the second time. I wasn't thrilled to see the Orange one, but it was interesting to see all the security surrounding him, and the motorcade full of odd vehicles.
