RIP Ursula K. Le Guin
Runner daughter informs me that she's a big Weezer fan, so I guess that means I'll have to move on now. (btw, she preferred "Feels like Summer")
Some of the others I considered from 2017 (in no order):
- Jack Johnson "Big Sur"
- Vusa Mkhaya "Schweinsbeuschel"
- Dispatch "Only the Wild Ones"
- Rebekah Del Rio "No Stars" (Twin Peaks: The Return soundtrack)
I'm just impressed that I'm "relevant" enough to know more than one song that came out this year.
Looking back, this World Series Game 7 would have never happened had the two leagues been able to come to some compromise. What, too soon?
"I" being the Twins' run differential this season.
WGOM -- where we watch the standings so you don't have to.
(but you're going to anyway, right?)
It's game day, Citizens! Clear skies to ya
In this morning's daily genealogy email that I receive was a link to an open source project that is archiving recordings from 78rpm records:
I got back into listening to 78s over 15 years ago when listening to Radio Dismuke on Live365. It's not something I can to for long periods of time, but it is a neat change of pace for my listening.
I remember my father had a small collection of 78s -- a few of them were comedies, including I think Cohen on the Telephone.
Do you have any experience with listening to 78s? Whether you have or not, post up your ten here...
The AL squad shoots for five in a row, and a win will tie up the all-time series.
