Ned Beatty has squealed like a pig for the last time
I know he was in so many more movies than "Deliverance", but that role was always the first thing I thought of when someone brought up his name.

A couple pics from my fishing excursion yesterday. I was kneeling behind the tree in the upper left of the first photo when I caught and released this nice little 10-inch rainbow trout.
Very nice pictures, looks like a fun trip! Wife and I enjoy the trout fishing, but we release as well.

Thanks, I really love the views, we don't have anything less than a 2 hour drive from where we live.

Re: No, No, Don't Worry. Racism is Pretty Much Over.

For crying out loud, why would you take a conversation with a complete stranger in that direction? Bigots tend to have a weird compulsion to not hide their views, especially with strangers, because they also believing in "telling it like it is." Nuance and discretion is for losers. To me, "telling ...

Re: No, No, Don't Worry. Racism is Pretty Much Over.

Drove an hour south to a couple trout streams yesterday to do a bit of fly fishing for the first time in years. Beautiful day. As I was leaving the last stream around 6pm to head home, I got in a conversation with a guy in the parking lot. Overweight older guy in camo who was sitting in his car wit...

Re: The Coronavirus Thread Of Good News

Things opened up (in part -- outdoor dining/drinking, limited in-store numbers etc) officially on Friday, it was great seeing some pals out on a patio for a few. Things looking up for accelerated second doses as well, so hopefully a semi-normal summer is in store for us here. 😎 Things are supposed ...

Mission accomplished.

Congratulations! I tried at my local participating store, they didn't get a single copy of it, so I had to settle for a couple of other goodies.

Re: Got Any Cool Vinyl?

Not a huge U2 fan, but I'm a sucker for picture discs, so I picked this up at record store day as well.
40th anniversary edition of the release of "Fire" on a 12" two sided picture disc.

Re: Got Any Cool Vinyl?

Today is record store day so I went to one of the few stores near me that's participating. Had to wait in a line about 25 deep for almost an hour, unfortunately they didn't receive any copies of Joe Strummer "Junco Partner" picture disc. But they did have this reissue of Joey Ramone "Don't Worry Abo...

New track finally released about a year late. Still not super happy with it, but had to wash my hands of it finally:

Nice Kory! Don't downplay it, it's good.

Re: Got Any Cool Vinyl?

Here's a recent vinyl reissue of the Sons of Perdition's second album (great gothic Americana for folks interested in such things) Very nice, never seen one quite like that. I'm not familiar with the band, but I'm going to have to do some internet searching to check them out. Check out their album ...
