Re: Coronavirus: How ya doing?

And now my kid's school start date got pushed back a week to "provide all teachers and staff members with several additional days of training and practice with our new protocols and procedures prior to students’ return to instruction." Gee, did they have all summer to prepare for this?

Re: Coronavirus: How ya doing?

Update #2. Gotta buy some new cleats. The governor has lifted restrictions on school sports, so we signed my 13 year old up for a summer lacrosse team. They will not be wearing masks and there is physical contact, but they're outside the whole time and they will be wearing helmets and gloves, so I'...

Re: Coronavirus: How ya doing?

This country is such a shitshow. It's just so fucking disappointing on so many levels. I have friends in Italy and Spain and they are back to pretty much normal at this point. And here we are. The half-assed lockdowns were pretty much for nothing. There's no way kids are going back to school. The mo...

Re: Scarlet - new old Rolling Stones song

I wonder when the vocals were recorded. They sound like they could be vintage, but who knows, considering previous bonus tracks . Page tweeted a thread of his recollections . Ric Grech from Traffic on bass and apparently Bruce Rowland from Joe Cocker's band on drums. No mention of Mick being around ...

Re: Coronavirus: How ya doing?

Well I am back from vacation, which was nice. Had some adventures, including going out to eat. Outside, at places that seemed to be taking things seriously. The first place we went was our regular weekend breakfast spot and when I walked in the owner growled: "Where you been?" But later he pulled up...

Their Satanic Majesties Instrumental Request

This is a really well done instrumental remix of Their Satanic Majesties Request, and the video montage is good too.

Re: Coronavirus: How ya doing?

Dropped my kid (13) off at summer camp yesterday. It was odd but seemed about as safe as could be. They requested that all campers get tested for covid beforehand (my kid was negative; we did an antibody test too while we were there and he was neg for that as well), and had us keep track of his temp...

Re: Good article about Rick Rubin

Worps, you need to go back and give Licensed to Ill another listen with fresh ears. Skip past "Fight for Your Right" and "Girls" if it makes you feel better, but I would put this in my top 3 Beasties albums (after Paul's and Check Your Head ). It's good. "Rhymin' & Stealin'" is as great as anything ...

Thax

Was doing a little ego-surfing and came across this:



Thax wrote it and performed it at our third birthday celebration back in 2004. Good times.
