steveo, I haven't paid the snow bill all winter, but they won't seem to cut off the service no matter what I do.

We were going to go a little ways upstate next week but now think we might have to call it off. Our car is not one that handles snow very well. It's ... vastly disappointing ...

Glad you guys are enjoying some Monday morning geetar.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:24am Phillippe Bastille:

@Handy no doves yet this winter here. Lotsa different kinds of waterfowl, though, at least 10 different kinds
Good to hear steveo. As someone who spends his time on the board talking about birds, good to hear he won't be clamping down on the non-music talk. Speaking of which, great set so far, Joe!

βrian, one sad thing is that this is the first winter of any even mild severity (it's a thing!) we have had in years. If we had been getting a bunch of snow *last* Jan. and Feb.? Hurray! But this year, when we actually want to try to go sit *somewhere else* sometimes, it's ... punishing. We're already at more snow than at least since 2016, if not 2010.

steveo, we have a 2003 Corolla. It barely likes rain!

@steveo (wipes brow)
My beater truck pretty much died back in November -- sucking antifreeze into the engine, but it has a quarter million miles on it so I can't complain. My bride has decided that we can get by on one car. Only problem is her car is relatively new and has such a small trunk that we have to buckle the costco-sized paper towels into the back seat. Not gonna fly in the spring when we need about 20 bags of mulch... Plus being in the 'burbs, we'll totally lose our "divide and conquer" approach to running errands on the weekend.

@ nardo, great movie. Great music. My theory regarding Peter Fonda is that he actually directed Easy Rider because Hopper was stoned all the time.

I believe this because Fonda continued to direct good movies and Hopper while an awsome actor, never directed another good movie

I agree regarding seeing movies in a cinema. Before the pandemic, the NYC film revival seen was really exploding, featuring a wide array of independent retrospective houses. I felt very privileged and was rigid about avoiding films on the small screen. However, the pandemic broke me. I will happily return to the cinema to see old movies when we can do that. However, now Turner Classic Movies has been my go to given our old school cable package. I saw Battleship Potemkin last night. I just hope those independent theaters will survive these trying times.

Thanks, Joe. I like how the ragas kind of tie things together with Fridays with Bryce's raga shows. I am ready for the weekend! (Well, assuming Joe Belock plays some female-fronted pop music and then some polkas.)

Idea that LSD & the Bomb are some kind of two sides of one coin - @ much the same time...

I saw a band years ago called Naan Violence. They would fit in with this set.

Catchup after charging my iPod: fyi Radio On is also a Sarah Vowell book, a memoir of listening...
I don't miss movie theaters so much (because rude people) but do wish i had TCM or that other quality film streaming service. Criterion Channel is gone i think.
I settle for Youtube movies or cheap DVDs. (A Better Tomorrow was the latest). The Dig on Netflix was quite good.
