Someday I'd like to see the Surface Noise pennant collection.

Holly in NC:

Generally shitty (new GOP state legislature is swiftly moving state back 30-40 years), but in the 1 mile radius that I call "home", super !
So glad that for 1st time in years don't have to work any Mother's day or graduation events (but nonetheless will not leave house tomorrow 'til evening). Moms, grads, and associated families EVERYWHERE.
Avatar 12:23am
Joe McG:

Erp, Mother's Day! I forgot to bring some Ma music. Oh well! I just got that EW&F LP with the mom song on it, too.

Some Patsy Cline, and a little...gin.
How bout, for this occasion, a little gin, and some Loretta Lynn! :D
Avatar 1:28am

Kitty Wells or Loretta Lynn?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:29am
Matt from Springfield:

@Joe: Good choice, besides "Walkin After Midnight" and "Crazy" the original may be one of my favorite Patsy songs.
Avatar 1:29am

Ah, Loretta, of course.

Very bistro-ey bed music! ;)

ANY Patsy Cline is a favorite, but boy, some of those country songs back in the day could really be howlers.

@LPB: I'm not sure why Capricorn failed. I keep finding great 45s on that label. Did Southern rock kill Capricorn?
Avatar 1:53am
Joe McG:

@Fernando: Thanks for toughing it out, man!
  Swag For Life Member 1:56am

Maybe Capricorn failed due to lack of diversity? you have a good point.

in re: Capricorn...read Clive Davis' memoir; that's what a label nerd I am.

Unfortunately, today's peoples have a different perception of libraries. We do our best...
Avatar 2:32am

My girlfriend moving back to my town with me + worse finances got me to rediscover the libraries around here. I have books out from five libraries in two towns at the moment.
Avatar 2:32am

Which is to say...keep librarianing
Avatar 2:33am
Joe McG:

Most of the new books I read are from the library. If, after I read it, I really need to have it, I'll buy it, but to me it's amazing I can read it for free. Yeah, libraries!
Avatar 2:41am
listener mark:

That was absolutely brilliant. Tom Jones covers a Bob Dylan song, that was just right.
Avatar 2:41am

I should use the library. I buy books compulsively, yet am only able to read a small percentage of them.
Avatar 2:44am
listener mark:

Try a good used bookstore, preferably one run by volunteers connected to a library or hospital. Often people will donate a relatively new book after they read it. The prices are very reasonable.
