Re: Coronavirus

Hospitals are pretty full here, but we seem to be doing better than in other parts of the country. I've been coming across some pretty horrifying reports about California; it's like the way NY was times 10. :nyrexall: I think CA hasn't gotten as much nationwide coverage though since the past few we...

Re: RIP

I dunno if I'd say "RIP," maybe more like "BIH" to Phil Spector. He caught Covid in a California prison serving a sentence for murdering a woman he picked up at the Hollywood House of Blues, bringing her back to his place and depending on the story, either purposely or accidently shot her in the fac...

Re: Donald Trump running for President.

It's not going to get done in the Senate until after the new Senate convenes and Biden takes office. McConnell won't take it up until probably sometime in February. A few reasons for not ramming it through this week include some in the Senate are terrified of further inflaming the crazies or at leas...

Re: Donald Trump running for President.

Like Nausea, I don't understand how the rioters got as far as they did. Yes, the large number overwhelmed the police there but, I would think that there are people in the government whose job it is to monitor social media, and various hate groups to keep tabs on what they're doing. If some of the r...

Re: Donald Trump running for President.

It looks like the endgame is impeaching Trump a second time in the coming months (it can be done after he's out of office) in the hope they get a full vote that would prevent him from running for office ever again. Too many of his Cabinet crony picks are jumping ship to get out of that sinking ship ...

Re: Donald Trump running for President.

Some thoughts after yesterdays events: Trump crossed a big line the past few weeks culminating in yesterday unquestionably inciting his idiot followers to essentially storm the Capitol to at least interfere with the House's procedures to confirm Biden's win. There were actually some people in full m...

Re: When did Perry's voice die?

I saw a big difference in Perry's vocals between the '97 Enit Relapse show and the 2001 Hollywood Bowl show. Listening to Strays, a lot of the quirkiness and higher range in Perry's JA v.1 vocals were gone but I'd bet some of that was due to Ezrin wanting Perry to sing in a more traditional way. Tha...

Re: Van Halen

The thing with Dave, everything he says and does is well thought out, even rehearsed beforehand. I remember back in '81 during the Fair Warning tour, Dave had this genuinely funny bit about how rock critics hated Van Halen but loved Elvis Costello... because they all looked like Elvis Costello.

I remember hearing about this at work. At the time, I worked at an Aerospace subcontractor on the night shift.

Re: Coronavirus

Most of the people I know bitching and complaining about government overreach are the same people out there without masks on, not social distancing, and all have inevitably contracted covid and inevitably spread it around prior to having symptoms.

Looks like most if not all SoCal counties including LA and Orange counties go into mandatory stay-at-home/lockdown order for 3 weeks as of Sunday night. One thing I didn't know previously, was that during this new order, Hotels have to shutter their businesses to all but "essential" customers. I don...
