this bucket of bolts, who is outside our solar system and they built on pre-internet tech from the 70s
is operating at full capacity

it is not operating at full capacity. in order to save on power, they have shut down several sub-systems: "Due to the diminishing electrical power available, the Voyager team has had to prioritize which instruments to keep on and which to turn off. Heaters and other spacecraft systems have been turned off one by one as part of power management. The fields and particles instruments that are the most likely to send back key data about the heliosphere and interstellar space have been prioritized to keep operating. Engineers expect the spacecraft to continue operating at least one science instrument until around 2025." (wiki).  first sub-systems were shut down in 1998, they've slowly been pruning away ever since.

God . . . I love a REM rant. In high school,  when hormones were controlling my every move, REM was such a structural box of isolation and independence to fall into. Then, the band changed direction and became old men who force positive emotions to cover up the sadness; like, we all do.

1st 5 albums flawless.  After that a steady spiral downward.

If you loved ‘college rock’ R.E.M., Shiny Happy People (and Stand before it) and the goofy showman persona big label Stipe took on (and the new fanbase) were impossible to process . . .but Shiny Happy People really is a great song . . .and with a few tweeks really wouldn’t be out of place on Life’s Rich Pageant.

I took in Chappell Roan from the Roo on the Hulu.. and I cannot lie she writes great anthemic pop bangers. But, clearly not at point to be able to hire background singers and keyboard players as there was heavy use of a backing track… clearly that doesn’t phase her audience…
