The idealist curmudgeon Steve Albini and Oxbow's Eugene Robinson on various non-music subjects: https://eugenesrobinson.substack.com/p/ ... ces-wsteve
Is Albini the one that hates Replacements Let It Be?
I've never heard that but I could believe it. He's pretty firm in his rejection of anything vaguely smooth or slick.
Regardless, that was a good read. Never sure about the curmudgeon schtick, but I appreciated him shitting on Joe Rogan.
He can be a bit one-note in his bile but he's never abandoned core punk values in what he does.

edit: Also, your avatar makes me think you're Heston. :naughty:
Yeah from the Replacements bio:
Well, he's consistent in his views. Punk's hectoring aesthetic conscience.

I was going to say, Flex has a point.
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

Forty years ago, Jodie Foster truly became a star: https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/202 ... -president

Funny, I still have memories of coming home from school and watching the coverage over and over. And then, like six weeks later, the pope was almost assassinated.

I'm surprised and saddened that we don't have more Hinckleys running around.

I'm still amazed that nothing ever happened to Obama.

The wife of a friend of mine taught community college, and most of her students were African American. Back 2008, a lot of them told her they weren't voting because they didn't want to feel responsible when he was killed. What does that say about black Americans understand their nation?
