Re: 2020 US Racial/Political Protests and Riots

I was at/attended the first day of protests in Seattle. Early in the day, I saw a group of white kids--16-19 in age (I guess), throw a water bottle at bike cops as the sped by. They were gleeful (as I might have been at that age), but didn't recognize how they put black and brown people at more risk...

Re: Question Re Amazon Fire TV Remote Replacement

Because of the prime app available through Apple TV, we've ceased to use our firestick and/or remote to access Prime. So, you might find a market of used remotes out there.

Re: Dave

Dave was a special guest w/ MINISTRY last night... Go figure. I haven't kept up with Ministry for about the last decade since it looked like Al was weeks away from kicking the bucket and the band did a crappy farewell tour. He's clean now and touring a new album. Really? I was within the last 6 mon...

Re: Jane's Addicted - SoCal Tribute band playing live

That was cool. It's not lost on me that the two cover bands I've heard of both are female fronted. There's one here in Seattle, too.

Re: Introduction to my books about Burroughs and Musicians

Yes. Big congrats. I look forward to it also. Do you expect U of Texas Press to have wide distribution and/or a marketing campaign for this, or is it being aimed at a more academic audience?

I enjoyed it, but wasn't blown away. It had too much cute in it for my taste. I liked how Force Awakens avoided any silliness.

Re: U2

Thanks for the review, Panda. I have a love/hate relationship with this band. I remember the exact moment I heard U2 War. I might have been in 8th or 9th grade. Joshua Tree was the album my high school class ranked as #1, but it wasn't to my taste at the time. When Bono tried to convince us they wer...

Re: RIP Sam Shepard

Am not a theater person, but read his poetry and prose when I was in my twenties and it did a lot to inform some of my earlier sensibilities about writing and the world. Two of the books were the Motel Chronicles and later, Cruising Paradise.

Re: Worst/Best Hit Songs to Represent a Band

Is this a weird question. Has anybody ever listened to/ watched a band for a period of time that they really don't like? And although you may still not like them, or the music, you've found the whole experience very interesting and worthwhile? Not so much a band, but there have been songs by bands ...

Re: Joanie Cunningham is dead

I watched Happy Days as a kid. Likely both when it was one weekly and after in syndication. I vaguely remember anticipating what this Joanie Loves Chachi thing might be. Did they own a restaurant, or a bar? I was young, but was struck that the show didn't seem grounded in the late 50s as Happy Days ...
