McMaster is a little tricky, because he's a 3 Star general and has retreat rights, so you have to have a place for him to land, unless he willingly steps away to the private sector.

I have another one of these somewhere from Gemini North, where I was splitting two components of a binary Kuiper Belt Object. They were only separated by the width of peppercorn seen from a kilometer away, and yet a satellite blasted out one of the two components.

The Thermals
We are officially disbanding! After 15 years and 7 records, we feel our band has reached far beyond our initial expectations and goals, and are stepping away from it while we still cherish it. We traveled further, soared higher and played louder than we ever dreamed, and we now look forward to a new chapter in our lives, our art, and our friendship. We would like to thank all the great labels who have released our records, all the amazing people who have worked so hard for us, and most importantly our fans, who we consider to be some of the smartest, sweetest and most compassionate people in the world. We love you, and we hope to see you again some day.

Wow, did I mention 1995 somewhere or is that a guess? More like 1995-2016. Traded her in on a used CX-5 right around Xmas 2016. Got $100 or $200 for her.

It should be noted that Brennser also had a Saturn.

Great little car for what it was. It basically had pieces falling off as I drove it, but never any major repair costs. Probably helped that I only drove it about 1000 miles per year.

Of course, mine had some rear spoilers, so a bit fancier than the one in the pic.

I'm sure the team trump will cry foul about this at some point...being sure to blame the liberals and their desire for a nanny state


edit...of course he did and turned into being about him...

@realDonaldTrump
Bob Iger of ABC called Valerie Jarrett to let her know that “ABC does not tolerate comments like those” made by Roseanne Barr. Gee, he never called President Donald J. Trump to apologize for the HORRIBLE statements made and said about me on ABC. Maybe I just didn’t get the call?

Yeah but I mean Hillary was uppity. What were we supposed to do?
we really need to get voter turnout higher
I did find out that 2016 was the second highest turn in 50 year (2008 being the highest)
but that's 60~%

But in battle ground states, voters turned out closer to 70%
More than 70 percent of voters turned out in Maine, New Hampshire, Colorado and Wisconsin, all states where both presidential campaigns invested heavily. Turnout hit 69 percent in hotly contested Iowa, and more than two-thirds of voters cast ballots in Massachusetts, Oregon, Maryland and Virginia.


but with the big effort for voter suppression...things can only get worse

All credit goes to the mom/teacher who confronted him at Teaism, right?

I'd like to think so, but he cannot be shamed (plus it was only a couple of days ago). He and his ilk can, however, be scared: something must of told him that he had to get the hell out of Dodge City.

The Weekly Standard...23 years and taken out by Trump in 2

 “May it rest in peace!”

that exclamation point at the end is very ominous...you can almost hear the Imperial March in the background


wow the more I read about this ...I believe the GOP is turning into a mafia-style organization..no dissent in the ranks permitted


This week, Anschutz and McKibben murdered The Weekly Standard, the conservative opinion magazine that Anschutz owned. They didn’t merely close it because it was losing money. They seemed to have murdered it out of greed and vengeance.

John Podhoretz, one of the magazine’s founders, reports that they actively prevented potential buyers from coming in to take it over and keep it alive. They apparently wanted to hurt the employees and harvest the subscription list so they could make money off it. And Anschutz, being a professing Christian, decided to close the magazine at the height of the Christmas season, and so cause maximum pain to his former employees and their families.

(That's the breaks, that's the breaks)
And he promised you the stars in the sky to not lie
He said his Cadilac history was gold good
But he didn't say it was ten years old his 80s yearbook he wore a hood
And he told you the story of his life
But he forgot the part about his wife racist past!

Yeah hard to hold your head high as a VA Democrat
I really thought both of them had bright futures and we really trying hard to deliver on their promises to the voters who put them in there

I was excited about northam plan to make 2 year college free for VA residents...no way that's happening now

The one thing you can say...the voters had no idea this was in Notham's past (Fairfax...it was out there, but who really pays attention to the Lt gov race)
 
 the right is determined to paint Democrats as knowing this information I still voting for him


I can guarantee you they're looking at Don byers and any other Virginia Democrat' old yearbooks and photos they can find from the 60s, 70s and 80s....mining for racist gold

This is very interesting...

The Washington Post-Schar School poll found 47 percent (of Virginians) wanting the Democrat to step down and 47 percent saying he should stay on after the emergence of a racist photo on his yearbook page. He counts higher support among African American residents — who say he should remain in office by a margin of 58 percent to 37 percent — than among whites.

Trump has nothing to do with the AAF
I meant that he though an alternate football league was a good idea 30 years ago...and it failed
so would be good advice not to try it again based on that "Trump thought it was a good business idea"

his point is that 30 years ago, trump thought it was a good idea and it went bankrupt (similar to his casinos, airline, steaks, vodka, etc.).  moral of the story: stay away from things that trump thought was a good idea 30 years ago, they're going to fail.

one of those things was an alternative football league.

lo and behold, 30 years later people resurrect the idea of an alternate football league - and it crashes and burns.  "if trumped touched it, you shouldn't".

that was his point.  nothing more.  at least per my reading.



but now he get's a $70 mill write off on all his profits from his other businesses....may have been the plan the whole time

"he" = AAF owner dude, not trump.

AAF reddit -- and yes, this exists -- is circulating several reports that Dundon bought the league just for the gambling app tech and shuttering it just removes a headache for him. It was a straight up $70mil purchase for the tech.


Even if they don't make it to a championship game, lets all agree to remember Orlando as the true AAF champs. Team was straight fire.

It's owned by France, not by the Catholic Church. I didn't know that all the distances in Paris (maybe they said France?) are measured starting at Notre Dame. I'm not religious, but I do feel like it deserves to be saved because of it's influence and importance in Architecture and Art.

Can't they take that that three quarters of a billion and instead build some low income housing?

So the argument goes like this...

$750 million of private dollars is $750 million the government doesn't have to spend, so technically, they could spend that government "savings" on low income housing, something that arguably should be the governments job and not the private sector's job (though voters in my home town thought differently).

In addition, restoring monuments and attractions only help to attract more tourists, whose taxes are a large source of the government revenue (Paris' hotel tax is 25%) so think of it as marketing for the individual, with a tax break, thinly veiled as an indirect investment in the government coffers.

Actually it sounds different from what you wrote:

https://news.bloomberglaw.com/daily-labor-report/top-labor-official-to-exit-after-white-house-probe

Former DOL staffers have in recent months told Bloomberg Law that Geale has been carrying out directives from the White House and Secretary’s office with a brash and abrasive style—laden with profanity—that’s been driving some senior personnel out of the department. The staff upheaval has been blamed for at least some delays on important DOL policy updates, such as a top White House priority to expand apprenticeship programs.

Ok...just to extra clarify, this show is in ***September*** All the shows I'm playing before September are still happening, including Houston, Los Angeles, Berlin, and Vienna, among others. Thanks.

This will be my last show indefinitely, and and I'm glad it's ending in NY where I came up.

In a separate incident, Shanahan's son was arrested for beating his mother with a baseball hat.

The transition to TM only is to be phased in.   They obviously couldn't yank all the existing pre-sold shows from the original ticketing system.  We'll see soon.... whether it's a event-date from which new shows will be TM only , or if it's calendar-onsale-date.

Sir Kim Darroch, U.K. Ambassador to U.S.

I am really appalled that Trump can call people Losers, Low intelligence, very dishonest and weak...the list could go on for pages

but someone says something about him...time to pack your bags man, can't insult Mr. MAGA and get away with it?

it's bizzaro how everyone caves
He has destroyed more lives with a nasty nickname alone...amazing power his insults wield

and of course his base LOVES that he publicly insults everyone, while everyone else is appalled and sad

right, but after years of being in the majority and getting used to doing whatever the hell they want, they are now feasting on the bitter pill that is being in the minority.  worse yet, the writing on the wall doesn't favor them regaining the majority any time soon.  with no prospects of living the good life in DC again, why bother?  better to go home and make bundles of cash, or stay in DC and make bundles of cash as a lobbyist - and not have to deal with the Dems, or having to constantly defend the president.

I can't believe the internet hasn't come up with a good name for this yet...but I did find this related gem

Can you fire someone over text message?
The simple answer is Yes. While it is unprofessional and rude, unless you have an employment contract or the real reason for the termination is an illegal reason, as discussed below, firing via text message is perfectly legal. Simply being fired by text message does not give you a legal claim against the employer.

but Sanders has raised a total of $61.5 million since he launched his presidential bid in February.
average donation was $18.07.

So don't really think he's losing momentum, I just think he has a ceiling with all these fresh faces

If only there was a thread for people who got, you know, FIRED!

Gruden makes me ask the same question as Chris Ash at Rutgers who got fired last week: why did you bring them back for this season exactly? Everyone and their mother knew they were getting fired. Their teams were going to be bad and they had no goodwill left -- what did you gain by bringing these guys back for 4-5 more games and doing this midseason? So silly.

How about the Redskins making him come to a meeting at 5AM JUST to fire him!?

Shep Smith at Flox News
dang...one of the few voices of reason on the network, I hope Chris Wallace  is not next

Our Dear Leader really didn't like him...I'm sure that came up with Pompeo and Rupert on their Wednesday night chat


@realDonaldTrump
Watching Fake News CNN is better than watching Shepard Smith, the lowest rated show on @FoxNews. Actually, whenever possible, I turn to @OANN!

Smith’s departure follows a report that he was warned last month by Fox News CEO Suzanne Scott and network president Jay Wallace not to criticize the network’s evening anchor Tucker Carlson again.

Smith had said on the air that it was “repugnant” that Carlson had not spoken up in defense of Fox News contributor Andrew Napolitano after a Carlson guest, attorney Joseph di Genova, called Napolitano a “fool” for saying that Trump had broken the law. Di Genova is a legal adviser to Trump.

Edit--I have to temper this with...she was a supervisor of this person...so that makes this less kosher.  I just don't know where the line is drawn with it's not Quidproquo or not consensual

Wasn't the real deal that money was inappropriately going to the staffer and they were going to investigate that angle and the staffer was likely to get into some legal trouble, hence Hill resigned to save the staffer's ass? That's what I read somewhere.
Honestly hadn't followed the story closely...so that's more of a problem...

edit...some better deets
16 17 19 GOP House members and four senators are forgoing reelection next year without declaring their candidacy for another office, while just five Democrats in the House and one in the Senate are retiring outright. The trend mirrors 2018, when more than two dozen Republicans retired ahead of the midterms, foreshadowing the blue wave that swept in a Democratic majority.

Ha. I didn't realize these were two different guys and thought the guy leaving was the one you are referring to. Seems like Trump would want to get rid of both Kings since he's the only true King. He's probably have to get rid of the Sacramento and LA Kings as well.

I offered to resign last night and President Trump said, "Let's talk about it tomorrow."
So when you get sacked, how long do you have access to your gov't twitter account? Or is that a personal account?

it's his personal account.  his first ambassadorship was back in the 80's, so he's been ambassador bolton for a long time.

well not really...
 It will continue to sell entertainment services under the TiVo brand, alongside Xperi’s own

TiVo has been dead for over a decade.  Even Julian's America's grip on TiVo products won't save it.  This wasn't a "merger", it was a $1.2b buy to dismantle the parts and sell them off.  Only the name will survive because of it's brand, and only for a short while.
Uh, I was on record like two years ago that I wasn't buying another TiVo product (and I have no bought the edge). I didn't go out and throw my Bolt+ with Lifetime away but when it kicks, that's it.
Tivo is trying to win your business back....

Same here.  And our Boy Scout (maybe Webelos) meetings were in the basement of the church rectory.  I vividly recall cleric and minion opening the door to let us in and showing the way d-o-w-n-s-t-a-i-r-s.     But never a notion of anything pedo from either church or scout leaders.

If Belmont goes on as planned and becomes first leg of the Triple Crown this year, real power move by the Belmont team.

If the cancel and the Travers goes off as planned, that adds a cool wrinkle to Saratoga’s season.

Old Chicago, Rock Bottom Parent Company Terminates 18,000 Employees (https://www.westword.com/restaurants/old-chicago-rock-bottom-parent-company-terminates-18000-employees-11678996)

Craftworks, the parent company of Old Chicago, Rock Bottom, the ChopHouse, Gordon Biersch and several other restaurant chains across the country, laid off its entire workforce on March 31, letting all 18,000 employees know that they were out of a job — and without health benefits — effective immediately.

That news comes just four weeks after Craftworks filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, listing both assets and liabilities of between $100 million and $500 million, according to multiple reports. The company was then in negotiations with one of its investors to reduce its debt significantly.

They are doing that for furloughed workers but there are still non furloughed workers who don’t get that benefit? I don’t get what you are saying

I was just shocked when my boss came out and asked for volunteers
I didn't realize it was common that benefits were still covered (but seeing that it is common)  I typically have to pay about $400 a month to cover my family and they are covering that cost if you go on Furlough

well but it’s a way to get people to volunteer


If a worker doesn’t take furlough and they get laid off they don’t get that benefit

We did this. Didn't ask for volunteers but targeted non-caregivers that make under $51k (because that's the amount that if you make less than, the state + federal unemployment benefits will cover 100% of what you make until 7/31) and then agreed to cover their insurance costs. Honestly, it kind of works out for everyone.

That $600/week federal UI kicker is really going to bail some individuals and companies out when used correctly.

It's not like bernie went out and screwed a bunch of people to make his money (like trump and so many other wealthy people)
He wrote 3 books and they did pretty well (Made $1.7 mil...that's pretty good)
Sanders has collected a six-figure annual salary since he joined Congress in 1991 too

He continually advocates for taxes and programs that would certainly put a dent in his wealth

DC Hot 99.5  "The Kane Show"
wow, that's almost it on live local dc radio (they all kind of sucked anyway)

Didn't realize how popular he was, he must have demanded more money and they were like 'fuck it, we can just have an intern do a spotify play list'

The show originated at iHeartMedia CHR “Hot 99.5” WIHT Washington DC in November 2005 and is also heard on multiple stations including 93.3 WFLZ Tampa, “98.9 Kiss-FM” WNRW Louisville and “Z104.3” WZFT Baltimore. . Premiere then took the show national beyond iHeartMedia owned stations in 2014. Kane’s weekly syndicated “Club Kane” that airs on Sunday nights on over 100 stations will end following the week of May 3 With Kane’s exit, the show has been renamed “Your Morning Show“.  The remaining cast of The Kane Show remains in place with Intern John, Riley Couture, Rose, and Executive Producer Erick continuing on.

Can confirm. You're not going to find funky stuff in NoVA (who wants it anyway at my age), but lots of great casual and business casual clothing finds at NoVA thrift stores. Only new clothing i buy are socks, underwear, running shoes, hiking boots, band and brewery t-shirts. The rest is from Goodwill.

Best thrift store find this year was a Giant hybrid bike for my kid. I think i got it on a half price sale at Goodwill for $30. Could have gotten it for $15 if i had remembered that I'm a member.

Getting beer at the to-go window of the brewpub is how you get to-go beer from the brewery.

Their food is really good. One of my favorite brewpubs I've been to. Typically, we would go for dinner and drafts and get a case or two to take home (at a much better price that Chicago area stores, where Z-Dust specifically was also hard to find.)

given that they're about to shut down their direct-to-consumer channel, and that channel is much more profitable than going through retails, 110% chance they will be selling cases at the brewery shortly.

true dat, but over-the-bar/direct-to-consumer sales are several times more profitable than wholesale - so while it represents a small portion of volume, it represents a disproportionate share of profits.  doubtful that they'll want to give that up.

(aside: over-the-bar/direct-to-consumer sales are what keeps most craft breweries afloat.  pandemic = no such sales = a lot more local breweries will be going under...)

Getting beer at the to-go window of the brewpub is how you get to-go beer from the brewery.

given that they're about to shut down their direct-to-consumer channel, and that channel is much more profitable than going through retails, 110% chance they will be selling cases at the brewery shortly. 

so, sorry space - you're going to have to continue sweet-talking celeste into a bi-annual midwest road trip.

It's interesting. Back in the early days of taprooms/tasting rooms, they used to give you free samples in hopes that maybe you'd buy a full pour or take home some bottles. Dogfish, Deschutes, and the Alchemist come to mind. Or they'd charge you a per ounce price cheaper than what their take home bottles cost. Alesmith and Maine Beer Company come to mind. I guess at some point the coin flipped and taprooms became money making ventures rather than a place to showcase the product and establish loyalty.

Its putting the word BOT in LGBT. “Kosmo puts the O in LGBOT.”

Even if you don’t capitalize it, my annoyance is around you not making the closing T in “bot” be the same T in LGBT. That double T is garrish.

Whenever this is a possibility in our family, I both cringe and salivate simultaneously. Nothing like dropping $60 for a three minute eating experience. Still planing on vacationing in Maine next month....hmmmm

When Hutch posted that thing in the Groper thread, I was like 'who is burger records, I never hear of them"
but they released a surprising number of well known artists

apparently it's not only mgmt but some of the artists are implicated too
the Growlers and the Black Lips two of the high profile ones

Many of these artists are boardie favs

    The Black Lips
    Brian Jonestown Massacre
    Cherry Glazerr
    Diarrhea Planet
    Dead Fucking Last
    FIDLAR
    The Growlers
    King Kahn
    Mikal Cronin
    The Muffs
    OFF!
    The Pharcyde
    The Plimsouls
    Redd Kross
    Ryan Adams
    Shannon and the Clams
    Tobin Sprout
    Thee Oh Sees
    Turbonegro
    Ty Segall

Burger Records

which didn't actually have contracts with any of it's bands...

So is this why so many artists were on their label, because they just released a one-off cassette or something?
Title: Re: Belly up, fired, and retired
Post by: kosmo vinyl on July 22, 2020, 09:51:31 am
Yeah I think the one off limited edition cassettes were a big part of why so many bands that were on their "roster".

They may been just doing manufacturing for bands which why no contracts were involved.

They also did digital distribution as they pulled all their catalog from the streaming services, but the bands were free to put it back on their own. 

but wow what a huge mess that turned out to be...

As that is typically not the best news, does not mean belly up

Virgin Atlantic (https://www.cnn.com/2020/08/04/business/virgin-atlantic-bankruptcy/index.html)

to maintain the Kosmic balance, here's one that actually is bellied up/fired/retired: Sprint (https://www.cnn.com/2020/08/03/tech/sprint-tmobile-brand/index.html)

Not sure what % of business that file actually end up going out of business?

depends what kind of bankruptcy you're taling about: Chapter 11 "Business Reorganization"; vs. Chapter 7 "Liquidation". in the first case the company is asking for protection from creditors while it (hopefully) addresses underlying issues in an attempt to return to solvency, while the latter is the company going out of business completely.  some percentage of chapter 11 filers manage to survive (i couldn't find the number), 100% of chapter 7's don't.

Virgin Atlantic is seeking chapter 15 protection (https://www.businessinsider.com/what-is-chapter-15-bankruptcy-2020-8), a rarity.

Federal prosecutors in New York just indicted President Trump’s former campaign chief executive and White House strategist Steve Bannon for fraud — with a surprise assist from investigators working for the U.S. Postal Service.

Lying to poor white people that immigrants are going to take their money while actually, in fact, taking their money and giving it to rich people who then donate some of it back to the cause of further tricking poor white people into parting with even more of their money. Classic GOP!

^ this.  there was a lack of communication and a lot of mixed signals between aziz and this woman .  she gave "verbal and non-verbal" signs that she was uncomfortable with the situation, yet they continued to have sex (oral only, apparently).  when she said "no" to anything more, he put his clothes back on and called an uber for her.  she texted the next day that she felt uncomfortable.  that's somewhere between an awkward and an awful date, the power dynamics were ugly, but i don't think it constitutes assault and aziz didn't deserve to get cancelled.  to lump aziz in with the weinstein's of the world does a disservice to both sides.

Did Aziz actually get cancelled? He took five months off and came back to a raucous reaction.

There is a huge difference between the cancelling of Weinstein, Anzari, and that poor editor who had the gall to allow a sitting US Senator to publish an Op-Ed, and I’m going to tell you, Anzari isn’t the one who should be complaining.

i think other than the really hardcore Daryl and Carol fans, the show lost people's interest with the death of Glenn and Karl.  Then Rick mopes around and leaves the show... Plus, the Negan character was far more effective when he was tormenting the gang off screen and then turns out to yet another sadist they have to deal with.. so yeah i've been watching it only in the background and never even bothered with the first spin off...

It’s a big loss even though it wasn’t a room designed for live music..it’s obviously a huge loss for the DC dance club community

I would expect Will Eastman to reenter the business if we can ever have live shows / DJs again

I always thought IMP would probably prefer to have their own place (instead of renting) for up and coming acts (or acts on the way down)...so I could have seen them opening up another club

At this point though it’s unclear what will happen... what if live music is banned until 2022??? 

I worry about the Black Cat...but for a lot of places - if you don’t own your space-I would encourage them to close and reopen when times improve.. should the role of government be to prop up these companies for potentially years?

I work nearby and would hit Whole Foods for a pint and Craft Beer Cellar (one of the best beer stores in DC) for takeaway beer. I went to Granville Moore's once or twice but mussels make me violently ill and there's cheaper Belgian beer found elsewhere. Maybe there are some other good food destinations down that way? Probably a question for Yada, I don't really follow the foodie scene.

I say that in the past tense of course.

There was a shooting at the Whole Foods last year but that was an anomaly. That end of H Street always seemed pretty safe though maybe it gets a little sketchier down toward RNR. The one or two times i had been to RNR lately i had parked up in the Whole Foods area and walked down.

White's Ferry  :(
After operating for 234 years, a Loudoun County judge has ordered it to be shut down because there is “no public landing” that exists

https://www.nbcwashington.com/news/local/whites-ferry-stops-operating-after-court-ruling/2522566/

(I've only crossed it on a bike or scooter)

Court Opinion is here: https://wtop.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/12/107CL00056672-01PO-195_whitesferry.pdf (https://wtop.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/12/107CL00056672-01PO-195_whitesferry.pdf)

Interesting ruling; seems like the owner of the Virginia side was done dealing with the Ferry's free use of its property. This would seem to be an appropriate spot for the Virginia gov't to take the roadway and the landing by eminent domain. Case took more than 10 years to get to a decision.

 released a statement on Monday saying the hotel will shut down between Monday, Jan. 4 and Wednesday, Jan. 6, as Trump’s supporters plan to protest that Wednesday when Congress is scheduled to certify the election results.

this is all part of the Grand Awakening.  along with opening their eyes to the horrors of the trump presidency, the american public is coming to grips with how awful and talentless taylor swift is.  a hot topic of debate is which realization will lead to greater self-actualization.

You do not want him 25th'd.  You will martyr him to his followers.

You want go to sleep knowing that the intelligence circles are working hard to prevent a classified data leak in the next 12 days and that the Dept of Defense has a handle on preventing any needless attacks in the next 12 days and hope for the best.

Honestly, if this was a better organized insurrection, with how easily they were allowed to enter the Capitol, they would have been way more prepared to do more than just take selfies.  It could have been much, much worse if we were dealing a true and real well organized militia.  They had their chance and the absolutely missed it.

Aren't these resignations done so that they don't have to participate in any 25th Amendment proceedings, whether so they personally wouldn't be forced to be in the position to choosing to do so, or somehow not having enough officials to carry out the procedure (admittedly I don't know the details of that or whether not having certain number of Cabinet members matters)

Finally had the time to do the research on this and it's not clear, but here's what I know:

Vice-President has to invoke the 25th Amendment along with a majority of Cabinet members.  That poses two questions: how do vacant positions count and what about Cabinet members who have not been confirmed by the Senate?   So assuming that can all get worked out in 12 days, likely via the Supreme Court...

The President can then ask Congress to intervene by submitting a letter to Congress arguing he is fit to serve in the role.  Congress would then vote on the issue, but it would require a 2/3 majority of both the Senate and the House.    There is very little chance this new House would approve by two-thirds.

So that leaves impeachment, which you already know would only require House majority (doable) and 2/3 Senate (questionable).

Hiya!   Yes the market is still pretty crazy out here with plenty of people attempting to buy homes either as weekend properties or full time living. The only problem, is there is still a severe lack of inventory in our area and pretty much anywhere surrounding my area.   The interest rates are definitely bringing more 1st time home buyers out as well, but again it's just you've gotta be super quick if you're going to get anything out here right now.

You should be marketing to people who don't have their houses on the market yet
You could figure out the 'value' today and what they paid for it...some people would be shocked they could make 100k selling their house and didn't realize it'd go up that much in the last decade

Postcards are cheap, take 4 hours and target 100 homeowners...I bet you'll get some bites
The money is in finding the people selling, not people trying to buy
(yes of course there is money on both ends...but so much more work for buyers ...and those helping those buyers)

The only problem with such an idea, and really the core reason why there's such a lack of inventory right now, is because sellers know they can sell their homes for a darn good price, but where are they going to go and what are they going to buy if they want to move and stay in our area when there is such a lack of inventory.

Rudy's membership to the NY Bar

well, it's an investigation only for now.  could result in being disbarred, but hasn't happened yet.

question for the two lawyers on this board: if rudy loses his NY license, does that mean he automatically loses right to participate in federal cases in DC?  or once federal (not "permission", but whatever you call getting your state license recognized in DC) is that separate from the state license?  is there a federal bar that would need to disbar him?

i ask because rudy has been proposed as someone who might defend trump in the impeachment.  i'm wondering if being disbarred in NY would disqualify him from federal cases too.

You definitely don’t want this position empty in the middle of a crisis..it’s insane..he only had a week to go
But who knows what’s going on?
Maybe Trump is plotting a second coup and Wolf wants no part

Now if Wolf is a traitor I guess it’s better to have him gone

Who the fuck knows

I am worried abou this next week

The important thing is to have Biden sworn in and taking over

Impeachment or whatever is just not as important

Not in an insurrectionary climate like the one we are in

Not all.  She's been on a fine line with her LGBTQ comments for some time - I'm actually surprised she lasted this long.  Pedro Pascal even had a phone conversation to explain to her about her comments and their impact before this post.

And she was about to star in her own series, so this is going to cost her a lot.

Fry's Electronics

Fry's was a chain of grocery stores when I was a kid in the Bay Area. When I visited Fremont for the first time in over 40 years in Nov 2019, I wanted to see what the hype was all about with their transformation to electronics. The parking lot was nearly empty, and the store seemed even emptier. Thousands of feet of bare shelves. Most of what they had was junk. A Tesla coil display was "out of order". They were selling a Hummer branded boombox (yes, the same brand as the defunct massive SUV).

I read that they were trying to change their billing relationship with vendors to all consignment. Some agreed, most didn't, but Fry's stood their ground. What a massive fubar.

2019 was way too late for the heyday of Fry's.  From 1990-1996 (they opened a store wiht a couple miles of my house in So Cal) I built a ton of computers with their hardware, and was constantly doing local tech support with their products.  I went back into one in the late naughts and was very disappointed by what it had become, clearly losing out to online shopping.

The Bottle Rockets

Bummer. For a bar band, they must have been doing something right to let him retire at 60.

Well friends, it’s time. Time to say “so long”. I’m givin’ it up. Packin’ it in. Retiring. I’m done. Been thinkin’ about it this entire time off. I’m more certain of it than anything I’ve ever been certain of before. I’m turning 60 this year. Including my time with Uncle Tupelo, I have been doing this recording/touring thing for 30 years. I don’t consider myself too old to do it anymore, but I do consider myself too old to want to.

Every musician has their own shelf life for doing what they do. Some go on into their 80’s, some quit in their 20’s and never look back. Ol’ Number 60, that’s me. 60 o’clock, that’s quittin’ time for this guy. Kickin’ off my travelin’ shoes and slippin’ on my house shoes. Home is where my passion lies these days. That excites me now the way the band used to.

I have no problem at all with the band. That’s not why I’m leaving. It’s all about where I’m at on the walk of life. I no longer want to travel, don’t really have any burning desire to write songs anymore either. I just want to be a good husband. A good neighbor. A responsible homeowner. A little dog’s daddy. A guitar repairman. A guitar player in my kitchen, and in some local country cover band whenever that scene comes back around. That’s how I want to spend the rest of my days. I want to be home for supper and home for bedtime. Winter, Spring, Summer, and Fall. I want to experience a “normal life” just as badly now as I did NOT want to in my youth. While I’m still healthy enough to enjoy it. Before I get ancient and impaired. Things change. That’s life. I’m ready and eager for change. Being home for a solid year made me certain of it. I don’t want to miss ANYTHING here anymore.

Mark, John, and Keith all understand where I’m at. That’s such a relief. But they’re damn good guys. The best. Those guys have been the greatest partners a man could ever have. Dedication. Devotion. Turnin’ all the night time into the day. No tellin’ what’s next for them, but knowin’ them like I do, I’d say the sky’s the limit. They all have the musical skills to do anything. A truly “hot shit” band. And, unlike me, they still have the desire to get out there and do it. And they are ULTRA professionals. Keep an eye out for ‘em. I wouldn’t be one bit surprised to see them show up in phenomenal places. I am rooting for them. Them’s my boys. My team. My life partners. Please support them. I know I will. They are the longest running members the band ever had for a reason. They’re the best on so many levels. I love them forever. Gotta salute Robert Kearns, Tom Parr, and Tom Ray too. All were members of the band I’m bidding farewell to. Everybody did a great job in their own time, in their own way. Everybody.

I gotta be honest, I’m not sad that this is really finally happening. It was bound to happen someday. What does make me kinda sad is that it’s already that day. WTF??? Where did that time go??? See? That’s my point. That’s what made me go through with this. Knowing how the time goes SO fast. I wanna get goin’ on this next phase, before it passes me by as fast as everything else did. I’ve finally reached an age where things get urgent. Available decades are gettin’ slim. Gotta find what you REALLY want and go for it. So I did.

I want to sincerely thank you all from the bottom of my heart. You all supported us for so long. I will never forget that, or take it lightly. I am forever humbled and grateful. It’s been fun, but now it’s done. Surprise ending, yes. But the band had a surprise beginning too, so it seems that’s just how we roll. Maybe the band’s not done at all. Who knows? I just know I won’t be in it. ‘Cause I’m done.

With a year off, and nothing on the books, this was the perfect intersection of time and timing. There would never be a time when leaving would disrupt less. That’s why I did it now. Didn’t wanna make a big deal outta my big deal. Wanted it to be as painless as possible.

So this is where the cowboy rides away. Goodnight now ladies and gentlemen. It’s the end of the show, now it’s time to go.

Maybe I’ll see ya at Home Depot or somethin’…

So sad about Mulberry Street. One of my absolute favorite children's books. I actually think my copy was from long before i even had a kid. It was a very old copy that i think i got at a thrift store or something. Unfortunately, my wife got rid of most of the children's books and my copy may have been tossed.

I know mine was. I don’t know about you but I haven’t thought about it since then so, whatever.

I certainly agree (that Capt Underpants rocks )

but we do have to parse when the publisher/author decides VS the gov't or some twitter witch hunt decides


“Every child who has read this book has been conditioned to accept this racist imagery as ‘OK’ or even funny,” he wrote. “It is this type of passive racism that has contributed to the continued hate and prejudice experienced by Asian Americans on a daily basis.”

In his apology, Pilkey said he would donate the advance and all royalties from The Adventures of Ook and Gluk to various organisations dedicated to tackling racism against Asian people, and to promoting diversity in publishing.

So I do think there is a BIG difference if it comes from the Gov't
Banning books is a line I won't cross

When the author/publisher makes a decision...it's different
Yes, you are correct, likely influenced by the woke mob

but as an author/publisher, you have to decide as a capitalist how you want to respond
if you kowtow, that's on you

It's a slippery slope, I don't deny

Did government have to tell Hollywood to blacklist anybody with leftist leanings or did Hollywood do it itself led by Ronald Reagan?

It’s great that you can neatly divide things but censorship is censorship.

We were all in agreement Charlie Hebdo should not censor itself because Muslims  found their cartoons offensive...

This let the market decide reasoning is terrible or do you think it ok when Rushdie’s publisher refused to keep Satanic Verses in print? No paperback edition... You can read all about it In Rushdie’s autobiography and make up your own mind.

I do agree...it's influenced by the mob. 
and it does suck

I don't know all the details, but I don't think the Hollywood blacklist is a apples to apples
as the gov't WAS totally involved and working behind the scenes to pressure studios and such
The first systematic Hollywood blacklist was instituted on November 25, 1947, the day after ten writers and directors were cited for contempt of Congress for refusing to testify before the House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC).


if I was an artist or publisher I wouldn't give a rat's ass, but always way more complicated with children's books

Gaetz allegedly showed off to other lawmakers photos and videos of nude women he said he had slept with, the sources told CNN, including while on the House floor. The sources, including two people directly shown the material, said Gaetz displayed the images of women on his phone and talked about having sex with them. One of the videos showed a naked woman with a hula hoop, according to one source.
"It was a point of pride," one of the sources said of Gaetz.
