Re: Dancing With the Dems

I also oppose it because I think that people who have committed heinous crimes should die in prison. I think that is how we give them the maximum, maximum punishment that we can: keep them in prison for all of their days. This is also really weird because if she prefers life imprisonment over the d...

Re: It's not the size of the screen...

I've been watching The Prisoner and I've been pleasantly surprised with how well some of the later episodes have held up. It's been a decade since I first saw them, and I remembered the later ones being much weaker. Using the 6 of 1 viewing order (which has been good overall but "The General" should...

Andrew, did you listen to Gene Clark's No Other ? In case you missed it, 4AD released a new deluxe version of No Other . Instead of the demo versions by Clark on acoustic guitar that were the bonus material on the prior CD (which I enjoyed), there are lots of alternative versions of the songs. Some...

Re: On the modern electric guitar

Speaking of guitars, I regularly listen to Roy Buchanan on YouTube. I don't claim to have heard every song of his, but I think I've seen every video of his on there (actual video, not a song playing over images). Not only that, I listen to music like the Jimmy Bryant & Speedy West albums, Chet Atkin...

Re: On the modern electric guitar

Tried a Fender Precision Lyte bass at a used-gear store the other day and really liked it, except for the finish, which was a kind of muddy "amber-burst" with no flame. P/J pickups, J-style neck (or even thinner, maybe), and a body like a slightly reduced P body. I might go for it except for the co...

I was at a bar with a bunch of Eagles fans, and they were upset about the hit that Wentz took that didn't get called. I was amused by the fact it was by a player with the last name Clowney.

I'm pretty sure Biden is the president we deserve at this point. Hunter Biden, that is. Having sex with his dead brother's wife, knocking up a stripper, smoking crack in strip clubs, getting jobs due to nepotism/cronyism... truly the leader America deserves for the '20s.
