Re: This is the thread for people who died, died.

I think I'm more offended that Tom Sawyer is the first Rush song on the list. Forty years of music, and that middling song is all most people know of the band.

Re: You're in the Driver's Seat

Super Troopers reference. In that movie, the Chief says, "I'm going to pistol-whip the next guy who says shennanigans." One of the cops calls out to a disliked cop "Hey Farva, what's the name of that restaurant you like-the one with all the shit on the walls?" To which Farva, who has been out of the...

Is consciousness a feature of matter?

Now I'll never hear Wye Wye Zed played live. It was fucking amazing. Some years ago, I took my dad to see Rush. I'd gotten him into them several years before.

I don't see any downside for Team Red. For the party overall, there isn't, but there's 4-5 GOP Senators who are going to have to thread a pretty small needle when it comes to balancing the Trump base and the suburban voters who don't want to dislike the GOP, but who really don't like Trump, who who...

Re: When do you think Trumpeachment will happen?

Is there any benefit to the Senate Rs holding an actual trial at all? I realize the Constitution requires some sort of trial proceeding, but I can't think of any reason it should be more involved than, "Here are the charges, now let's vote to acquit." I don't see any downside for Team Red.

Re: Favorite and/or most hated Christmas movie and song

The other day, the hubby and I came across Emmett Otter's Jug Band Christmas. There was, no doubt, a strong nostalgia factor, but we both enjoyed the hell out of it.
