Re: Coronavirus: How ya doing?

Show of hands, has anyone else recently been afflicted with being in a weird fugue state aphasia, a kind of "life tired"? I'm not tired of living; I still love life and want to continue. I'm talking more like, life is continually on a regular basis tiring me out. And it manifests as not only physica...

Re: Coronavirus: How ya doing?

I'm interested in hearing from any GLONO parents what they're planning on doing about school? In-person or remote? Is your school giving you the choice? Man, that's a very tricky one. I would say that here in the Murphy household, we err on the side of cautious. I'm the only one of us four Murphys ...

Re: Coronavirus: How ya doing?

Hmmm, spent the “holiday” weekend mostly hanging at home, but we did get to go see my parents and my sister and her family at my folks’ house. We also bore witness to so many of my neighbors putting on what seemed to be pro-grade-pyro fireworks from our own back porch. That part was insane. To their...

Wow. Is Thax still with us? I remember that he left Chicago in disgust and moved to Austin, TX. I hope he’s doing well...

Re: Who's excited for some Homegrown?

There’s an interesting side story about that song “Florida”. My copy of the Tonight’s The Night LP is one of the earlier copies with an (almost) lustrously-flocked textured cover. But it’s missing one of the original inserts, which has on it a rather disturbing story that I hadn’t had a chance to re...

Re: Albums You've Got More Than 2 Copies Of

Hmmm, I’m similar in the respect that a lot of my duplicates are the result of acquiring other people’s collections. Other times, it’s an intentional thing where I’m looking for a particular version (i.e., a double-Wally copy of Boston’s first LP, or a first or second US pressing of DD’s Rio ). Othe...

Re: Coronavirus: How ya doing?

I really appreciate GloNo, and really appreciate having all of you (my fellow music nerds) to hang with, bounce off ideas, and commiserate the state of affairs. Ch...

Re: Coronavirus: How ya doing?

In all seriousness, here are a few of my favorite (musical) things: Bob Mould — his new single “American Crisis”. Bob is pissed, and the result is a blistering furious punk song Hushdrops— I have heard a preview of their third album, and it’s awesome Questlove Supreme — this is such an awesome podca...
