Hey Fiddlesticks, wizard frog, Geoffrey in Ottawa, Joey, Rob Kopp + Carmichael!
  3:40pm lunarleigh:

Sheila- you should really double check with your vet that the dose is correct for your cat. I’ve had a cat get 8 teeth extracted but definitely did not have this problem afterwards but another cat was given pain meds and was having difficulty walking-almost drunk-like, so we went to VERG and found out the dose was a bit high. Uggghhhh.
Avatar S.B. Boomer: Marathon 2022 3:41pm K8:

@Handy...BP is lazy as all get out. I can't get him to stay outside with me. He just wants the couch. Sigh. Bring me back my SBB shirt!

P-90—To experience so much loss.... I'm glad she can channel all that pain into her songs.
Avatar 3:44pm djsheilab:

lunarleigh—Thanks for your concern! The vet assures me that his response is normal, and when I looked it up, it appears that some cats have a more hyper response to the surgery + meds.

Going to have to give that Anjimile album & new EP a listen. No Going Back by Yuno has been my song of summer for the past 3yrs. Perhaps there's a track on those that could overthrow it? 🤔

In a similar spirit to the Linda Lindas, I'd recommend a new UK comedy series called 'We are Lady Parts' about a Muslim riot grrrl band. If you're able to watch it, it's really funny and distinctive. Also regularly references the band 'Dickless'.

As Sheila B talked marriage (to inanimate object?), I post this (posted on wfmu in past)—Mass Romantic cd is my wife. No joke. My neice was getting married in 2009. But I’m single, so I said “Lisa, I’ll lose face if you marry before me”. So an ordained via internet pastor married me to the cd, 3 days before Lisa’s big day. Whew!

McIntosh is like a 1970 Silver Cloud Rolls Royce of audiophile gear. From what I am told it is almost ALWAYS the capacitors which need replacing.. (kind of like bigger Transistors) "caps" for short, they get swollen or just worn out. Let me know if this NJ guy is any good.. I have an Amp here which needs some expert eyes on it and expert soldering..

Thanks! Hardly anyone ever mentions specific gear on WFMU... after 30 years of listening ... maybe once or twice! (30 years is a lot!) Capacitors themselves are not hard to find and are fairly cheap, maybe round $20 (?) ... Thinking of doing this myself , actually.. (maybe) Wish my Dad was alive and still had his oscilloscope, both would've been a big help.

Sheila, a nice mellow Friday reading soundtrack. Thank you! I’m very excited to follow your McIntosh development. We conversed briefly about dumping FB for which I’ve brought usage down to virtually nil. I am however addicted to ads for amazing stereo complements. So, yes, I prefer ads to people’s blather.
