Ken,

I know you suffer or suffered from anger management issues. But now it just occurred to me. This is going to sound bloody obvious...But have you ever tried music to relax? I mean, listening to the India Song makes me mellow. People play music to fit their mood. Apps give you music based on own's mood. Or perhaps anger and wrath only demand angry music. More fuel to the fire.

I think the most positive aspect of this extremely dysfunctional 2016 election is people who don’t know anything about the electoral process are now seeing how it works and how it’s been corrupted. Sanders is the only legit candidate out there.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/27/16 11:20am JakeGould:

Also that is all I will say on the topic. Done with political talk. Sanders is the best candidate but won’t win at this point but has been putting on an amazing campaign.

@Dan-are you going to tell JakeGould to stop talking now?

I think what Ken was trying to say in relation with Talking Heads and the other bands he mentioned is that he hadn't listened to the band since late 70's. And then, years later, listened to them he realised they weren't as good as he recalled them.

“Agree with what he says about weed being legalized.” Okay, one more thing based on this… Supporting ANY candidate on their “weed” stance is one of the densest things anyone can say.
