    MLB Part Deux

    Yeah, these are great caps. I remember the first time someone pointed out the MB, it blew my little preteen mind. My only trip to Miller I bought the newer 'M' logo with the blade of wheat. If I have a "second" team, the Brewcrew are 100% it. Great park, great baseball town. Unrelated, spotted...

    Not sure I’ve ever read a worse book than the Davinci Code. Finished it out of spite

    Rawhide, Dead Kennedys

    There's a whole lot of context, but in 1984 he was just an unceasing potstirrer.

    books you didn't finish

    Usual suspects: Lord of the Rings (60% done), War & Peace (25%). Great books, just drifted away. GRRM's first Thrones book, I got maybe 70% through and just put it down laughing. Great stories, just dreadfully awkward prose and dialogue. Should've seen that finale coming. Blood Meridian and...

    It was a little different in Dallas. I can't direct link the article owing to the pol content, but you can search this site for "Biafra" and find it I'm sure: https://www.dallasobserver.com

    Rawhide, Dead Kennedys

    Fresh Fruit will always be my favorite, but Plastic Surgery Disasters/NPFO was my introduction to DK around age 13-14 if I remember right, and I worked backward and forward from there. Lots of stories about DK getting hassled in Big D over that very record. Same crew hassled Bad Brains and...

    I honestly can't hear a difference between tube and solid state amps.

    I'm about a month out with a Revv D20, my Mk1 Katana 100 having given up the ghost prematurely. Better? Magictone? I dunno, I just practice a lot and these are subjective terms, but it certainly sounds different to my ear and I'm hardly some corksniffer. My place is too small to really push...

    Tremendous, somehow never heard of this. That era/style in 80s CA, no end of incredible stuff.

    Great post and yeah, seems like you could improve on this: It's complicated no doubt. I saw these recommended earlier in the week and put them on the list.

    25 years of the most quintessential nineties' album nobody heard of.

    True, it's definitely picked up steam over the years, I think the Internet kind of blew it open; then there was the 2014 reissue and doc. I didn't hear about it until 2001. Still don't think most people have heard of it, PF aside.

    Modern problems: Food delivery drone lands on power lines.

    Or maybe an argument for why we should have awesome flying cars? Think about it. A market solution! Amraam deals with that passing lane jerk (only Mach 1!? Get over!) pretty tidily.

    Modern problems: Food delivery drone lands on power lines.

    If we yanks had listened to smart people and remained focused on city centers while eschewing the suburbs 60-70 years ago, this might not have been a thing at all. As it stands, drone delivery makes a sort of perverse sense when most "neighborhoods" look like this (Dobson Ranch, Mesa AZ)...

    25 years of the most quintessential nineties' album nobody heard of.

    Honestly thought "what do you want from me" was a non-album Electronic track this whole time, but didn't care for it enough to really dig for it. Electronic's self-titled record ('91?) was unassailable; end to end, not a stinker on it. I was gonna say 1991's Spiderland as a somewhat unknown...

    Hit .500 last night, 9 of their last 10 and still not mathematically eliminated. I think the Gyros need to win out and a Milwaukee 1-5 run the rest of the way. Keep hope alive I guess. I'm wearing my Bonds jersey to work today :)

    speaking of art... what is your favourite?

    I hope I listed Thiebaud. First painter I think of with questions like this. Wasn't familiar with this one and had to look it up. Pretty great.

    Million dollar Macca new, no telling now. But the pic above was the second in a set, and really needs the first pic for effect (and copious schadenfreude).

    Please explain why Ian is a historic hurricane

    "I'm tryin Ringo. I'm tryin real hard to be the shepherd." I hear you. I take some pity on the ignorant, but the internet as spigot-for-contrarianism is a lot to absorb sometimes, especially when it caustically minimizes actual suffering. Edit: Or minimizes this.

    Please explain why Ian is a historic hurricane

    Amen to all of that. There's a large subset of people who are quick to trumpet their jaded/oppositional affect about literally any event that impacts others. The ones I've talked to about it seem to be very sensitive to anyone thinking they might be taken in by sensationalism, and so...
