Re: Coronavirus: How ya doing?

Jake, I gotta ask you, have you or your loved ones been affected by the massive flooding in Central MI? What's Derek Phillips up to these days? Anything musical? You guys close at all these days? Poor you, you've gotta deal with both massive rains and Da Pretender Prez visiting you (Trump). Here in ...

Re: New music podcast: Famous Cat Chronicle

Just wanted to remind anyone who might have missed it, there's a new episode of the Famous Cat Chronicle for your listening enjoyment! Todd Leiter-Weintraub of the band Hop On Pop (friends of GloNo) spills his history all over the page and some dude named Thomas Durkin puts it all together, and the ...

Re: Coronavirus: How ya doing?

We might all die, but depending on whose suggestions for surviving this pandemic we choose to listen to (the President's mindless zombies vs. the scientists and doctors), we CAN choose whether we die in a shorter time period or if we stand a fighting chance to live to what was called "old age" in th...

Re: Coronavirus: How ya doing?

G5am, that Liz Phair WCSE is an awesome disc. Those first 3 Liz albums are unimpeachable, and Jake’s resequencing of the self-titled Liz album makes it pretty damn great, too!! I’m still not a fan of “H.W.C.”, but between the good songs on that disc and the 5 tracks on the Comeandgetit EP, there’s ...

Re: Coronavirus: How ya doing?

Jake, you mentioned that "it's getting harder for me to imagine things ever going back to normal." I hear ya, but maybe here's a different way to look at things. You're probably at least somewhat familiar with the Kubler-Ross 5 stages of grief, right? What we may have to do is to properly grieve for...

Re: Coronavirus: How ya doing?

So let's see... we've been under stay-at-home orders here in Chicago for what, two weeks maybe? Maybe a little less? I admit I've been able to "go out" in terms of being the person who goes out and does the shopping. But it's odd, strangely quiet, very ghost-town like when I do. I don't like knowing...

Re: Coronavirus: How ya doing?

So far, we're doing as best as we can. My wife is (as of this writing) actually in the hospital for cellulitis in her leg that they haven't been able to resolve using oral antibiotics. That means my 16-year old son and my 12-year old daughter and I are home with the cats. We're making do, but we mis...

Re: Best of the Decade... Share yours!

I'm not gonna even pretend that I've listened to all the music that I should have; I'm way behind. I *do* know that I have always been a great "cheerleader" for the bands and sounds I like the best. Here's the ones I highly recommend to you, the cultured listener who has impeccable taste: Hushdrops ...

Re: New music podcast: Famous Cat Chronicle

Oh my good God, thank you!!! Episode Zero (the introductory statement of purpose episode) is up, and the first guest is going to be Todd Leiter-Weintraub of the Chicago "band" Hop On Pop, who's been a running buddy of Riviera and definitely a guy that you guys should know. Thanks!! (BTW, DJMurphy = ...
