Comment on Hey Nineteen: Happy birthday to us! by DJMurph (tha podcaster!) http://gloriousnoise.com/2020/hey-nineteen-happy-birthday-to-us#comment-633683 Wed, 19 Feb 2020 17:51:59 +0000 http://gloriousnoise.com/?p=21091#comment-633683 You guys are still awesome. I salute you, and hope to engage / contribute / celebrate GloNo in whichever ways I’m able. Another great 19 song I just listened to this morning: Joe Jackson, “Nineteen Forever” on his 1989 album Blaze Of Glory. And no, don’t read any deeper metaphorical over-thought into the “forever” part of the title; I certainly hope that GloNo does not remain 19 forever. I want to see it turn 20, 25, 30, etc.!!

Comment on In Memoriam: The Iowa Caucus 1972-2020 by Craig http://gloriousnoise.com/2020/in-memoriam-the-iowa-caucus-1972-2020#comment-633682 Thu, 13 Feb 2020 16:13:58 +0000 http://gloriousnoise.com/?p=21148#comment-633682 Two things:
1. The reason Iowa is so important to candidates is not because of the actual number of delegates, etc. Rather, the importance lies solely in the fact that it’s first and it allows the winner a burst of momentum and attention that can carry the winner to greater heights in future primaries/caucuses. Further, it also adds legitimacy to the candidates campaign for crucial fundraising necessary for future successes. The delay robbed the winner of that bounce and of the ability to go to donors to say I’m the winner of the first state, please support mt efforts.
2. The caucus system generally does not allow for people, especially the working poor, to participate. Nobody who works shifts or multiple jobs has time for a 2-4 hour process. If the goal is to encourage high levels of participation, this caucus process does not align. Think of how many more people who could vote if it was a quick in and out at the polls and early voting/mail-in voting were allowed.

Comment on Iowa Jam: The Grateful Dead at the UNI-Dome 2/5/1978 by Tom http://gloriousnoise.com/2018/iowa-jam-the-grateful-dead-at-the-uni-dome-2-5-1978#comment-633681 Wed, 05 Feb 2020 18:27:14 +0000 http://gloriousnoise.com/?p=17567#comment-633681 Great write up. In listening to Sampson it sounds to me like maybe Bob’s mic failed at first. Then the eventual “woo” was to confirm it was working but who knows. It’s definitely a wonderful second set from 42 years ago today.

Comment on The End Of It All: Acknowledging The Awfulness Of Jandek by Liam http://gloriousnoise.com/2009/the_end_of_it_all_acknowledgin#comment-633653 Fri, 18 Oct 2019 14:29:18 +0000 http://gloriousnoise.com/?p=5944#comment-633653 Criticizing Jandek is like shooting fish in a barrel, and his detractors utterly lack imagination. I can’t even imagine writing a long-ish piece about something I don’t like. Says a lot, really.

By the way it was the parliaments with the fun company not funkadelic yet. As for bob, that guy was the hardest working dude in the motor city. I skied at that joint all the time. That and pine knob and alpine. We used to keep a toolbox with different color construction paper and pens so that we could create our own ski passes… the 50th anniversary of the mount Clemens pop festival, 8.3.1969 is coming up. Country joe and the rest went from Michigan to Woodstock… if I remember correctly, cat mother and the all night newsboys closed that at about 4am…

Low b12. Copper imbalance.
