Brian and Roger didn't have the same kind of sibling rivalry as the Davies brothers or the Gallaghers. Although I heard they once got into a bit of a row about the setting on a synthesizer.

I have my doubts that any of the sports stuff will actually commence this year. The open early crowd are going to force the numbers back up. I really hope I'm wrong about that but still...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:18am p20:

Football is a contact sport. I think we should start with non-contact sports. Like free-throw competitions. (Never liked fooball anyway, the brutality and brain injuries are a turn off)

@D(iL): I love that story! I'd probably print out a screen-grab and frame it.
Avatar 9:22am DJ Guin:

@p20 -- I am in agreement. Same reason I cannot watch boxing. Football I will follow, but I do not bet nore really give a shit about the self aggrandizing of players, i.e. OBJ et.al. MLB has become more about dingers and 100+ mph pitches than strategy.

@p20 maybe launch a professional ultimate frisbee league and work up from there. Outdoor lawn curling would be another good one.

Greetings morphester and Brian.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:29am p20:

@TT: Pro Ultimate Frisbee could be pretty cool. When I was in college there was a requirement to participate in a sport. And I am not really a sports guy, even less so when I was a skinny college student. But at least Ultimate was one of the options, and I discovered that I really liked it.

@Woods @DIL totally agree about the concentration thing. 2 weeks ago it was really bad for me. Last week was a little better. For me it seems to be a weekly mood is set and then follows me until the next monday. This week seems a little more focused so far, but well see. and sweet painting woods!
Avatar 9:38am Deborah:

@ WoodsOfNH: Same with me. Teaching college courses online due to pandemic and papers need to be graded, students need attention (way too much) and I am not my usual prompt self. In a complete mindset of "oh well." Some creative urges but not yet. I write.

  9:42am testingwithfire (she / they):

@WoodsOfNH @Deborah @Snoochienucci For me concentration is linked to motivation, and sometimes the motivation simply ain't there, like early last week. I got a new client late last week and acquired another special project, so motivation came back (thankfully).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:43am Handy Haversack:

Dig the painting, @Woods!

I guess I'm concentrating OK on work. Seems like a distraction from all the OTHER stuff. I'm kind of staying on top of game prep, too, which is my main creative channel.

@P-90 - Video is not archived, evidently. I see just the regular playlist archive.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:52am Jeff Golick:

(@P-90, re UM's video stream, I do not think he is archiving those.)

Joan Armatrading’s music has aged well, if that earlier track is any indication. I think I had a couple of her cassettes in high school.
