Re: Women in Music

Women can front rock groups because women look and sound different than men. People like to look at, and listen to, women sing. The instrumentalists live and die on their prowess with their instrument. And here's the thing. If you're the bassist, drummer, keyboardist, whatever, of a successful rock ...

Re: Cheap food, historically

Refrigeration and freeze drying allowed civilized man to escape the bonds of seasons and region culinary speaking. Exotic foodstuffs such as bananas became available throughout the year. Meat butchered in October could be eaten in February without brining or curing. A 1900s Midwest farmer might look...

No? Well even so. I don't think "The Republican Party left you to die" is going to as easy a sell. Not to mention 300,000 is like 1.5% the population of FL.

What are you talking about? I'm talking about everyone that got a bonus check from their employer last year. House GOP leaders are making the midterms all about the tax law and it's not a challenge to sell. As for the most lasting effect of Trump, I have a riddle. What happens when 300,000 Puerto R...

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

Also, unlike W and Obama, Trump is a very short-term disaster. All his damage will be wiped away by the first mid-term following his watch. How do you figure? Someone more competent than him will be able to use the same playbook more effectively. You can't have it both ways. Either Trump's tenure w...

Re: OFFS: The Forsakening

The question is horribly phrased. 40% either answered "uncertain" or did not answer at all. Further, a "disagree" answer is perfectly in line with a belief that it would neither improve nor reduce the chances of good policy.
Nothing to see here. Move along.

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

I am still convinced that Trump will be a long-term disaster for the GOP. I think the GOP is going to lose control of both houses over the 2018 and 2020 election cycles. Get set for a decade of Team Blue rule. Team Blue isn't cannibalizing itself the way the GOP is, but Trump is in large part a rej...

The Runaways. Vixen. And I don't know how far back you want to go, or how wide a net to cast, but there were a lot of Motown girl groups. But those were female front groups with male musicians in the back. They didn't seem to have women playing any of the instruments that I've seen. The Runaways we...

Re: Good Cover Versions

Interestingly, a lot of the female singers that I've enjoyed lately tour with all-male or mostly-male groups of performers on instruments. Alice Merton, K.Flay, Zella Day, etc., they mostly have males playing instruments. They're doing well in their careers and could presumably get female backing p...
