But the way you wrote those simple 5 words kind of sent a shiver down my spine when I read them again...

Re: The Neverending Thread for Political Shit

My mom is 79 and my dad is 88. They have never voted Democrat in their lives. Ever. My mom is so disgusted with Trump that there's ZERO chance she would vote for him again. Not 100% certain on my dad, but I'm pretty sure he's in the same boat (he's not as vocal in his distaste for Trump). These are...

Re: Brooklyn Bowl Six Nights of Setlists June 2019

I was also impressed by my new friend Lelou. A lovely Parisian young lady on a solo vacation in NY. Came out to see a band she knew almost nothing about except for a song on a playlist that she loved (Man I Shot). She walked away saying it was the best show she had ever seen. She was also quite sur...

Sands of Iwo Jima. With the story. What a fantastic tribute. I think this is one of Patterson Hood's best songs.
