Handy, I am very sorry to hear that the Covid beast has landed again. Is this the fourth or fifth time it’s crashed into your house?

At least neither you or Kate has been captured, dragged into a van and been surgically modified to become a child and then made someone’s child bride.

Threemoons 🌛🌕🌜:

@HH OH NO I am so sorry RE K8, the show, vacation, etc. COVID sucks. Have you tested positive yet also? Even if K8 is asymptomatic, drinking tons of water is KEY. Also, before either of you do Paxlovid, check the counter-indicated medicines from the official FDA site, NOT the manufacturer site -- it's huge. I couldn't take it because it would have meant quitting one of my essential meds 48 hours before even taking the dose, and then being off of it for two WEEKS afterwards. Feel better and best of luck, and I am so sorry the bug bit you.

Speaking of Blondie box set. I wrote Numero to inquire as to why the price of the extras box set has doubled and keeps increasing since the box was announced. It was listed at $100 when announced, then last week was listed for $200 and now it's $225.

Numero responded and said that UMG handling the manufacturing and "dictating the price" even after the original announcement. The Numero crew is working on trying to find a solution.

Dano59, the journey is in jeopardy. K8's tested positive. So we're looking at Monday best case for being able to leave town, and of course if I get sick or she doesn't recover fast, that gets pushed out ... express bus to Bummer Town around here.

@drr - Yeah, I'd say so. All of their album are solid and still relatively cheap on used vinyl. There were some nice CD re-issues about 10 years ago too. I overlooked Magazine for a long time until I looked at the back cover in the late 90s. "Hoawrd DeVoto? Barry Adamson? I better pick this up!"
