  1. Continuing the tradition of non-traditional Thanksgiving with chili and football and family. Maintaining a little bit of tradition with pumpkin pie and heavenly hash (fruit cocktail mixed with marshmallow cream/cool whip).
  2. Holy shit, have I really been here for FIFTEEN YEARS??? INCONCEIVABLE!!!!! I'm sure I've been "QUITTING THE BOARD" at least 6 times (which pales in comparison to many of you/us). Yet here we are. What a pleasure it's been virtually hanging out with so many of you all, and occasionally even in real life thanks to SSF and various sidewalks, rails, and venues around the globe. Goodness what a collection of highly messed up freaks. No wonder I feel right at home! Vince
  3. For sure the back to back LammyCat’s and not a Nova in sight was a letdown for me in Oakland. Sunday was such a great show, I was pretty pumped for night 2. Loved hearing Kamera. And Monday was a joyride even with the “alternate” lyrics. But yeah i enjoyed night 1 (and a couple other shows this run) more than this one. Maybe we’re all a little weary. This 10-show run stuff is new for me. Methinks I’ll take a three day nap now. cheers!!!
  4. sigh.... as husband Scott might say.... "AW SHIT MAN!" Glad they're sprinkling it in to some of the single-night shows. Still got Oakland tho! Cheers!
  5. What a Wilco Wednesday indeed. Pure Joy. I haven't smiled so much in a very long time (though I doubt anyone noticed as we were all masked up!). I was lucky enough to get one of the YFF Library books from Scott (via Tad and an extendable grabber, because, you know, Covid), as one of the leading "standers" down front for ALL of the YFF opening sets. A prized possession for sure. Mikael's appearance was a delight, but did cause me to worry a bit that it might be all the collaboration we'd get. Thankfully I was wrong as usual. The Wilco set, with the Lazarus-like resurrection of the cr
  6. ahem, I believe that you failed to mention that said monomaniacal denizen was one of only two attendees standing throughout the YFF set. Can't believe the lack of love for any Scott band up here. Maybe Seattle will be better. And I figure if Nels gets to sit down, then so do I. We're practically the same age after all. Fun show for sure. Once again we had a particularly large unused portion of the stage (10-12') in front of the band and ahead of the front row which made the band seem tucked away from those of us up front. The sound was very good up front, even without any aud
  7. It really was a strange room. The shallow floor section, along with the practically vertical 3-layer balcony, made the room taller than it was deep, and not very wide either. As mentioned above, the band set up behind the curtain line, which made the front 15' lip of the stage this weird wooden expanse between the front row and the stage monitors. The sound board was set up behind the last row of seats on the floor, which meant that you had to walk in the 3' narrow walkway BEHIND Stan and Jeremy to get to the far side of the floor seats. The crowd sat for the Fellows, who didn't reall
  8. I have two very nice single tickets for the show in Bellingham. Seat C17 (Center, third row) Seat A23 (Center, front row)... this one is next to me, so you'll need to be OK with minimal signage. $90 face, or make me an offer. They're will call so I'll meet you at the venue before the show. Cheers! Vince
  9. Happy to trade in the Nova for this set last night. May all shows be night 2 shows. (Though I suppose we could say we did indeed get a NovaCat, just with a 24 hour intermission!) And I continue to be enthralled with the Young Fresh Fellows. Scott thanked Wilco for being so supportive of up-and-coming bands like themselves, later saying that they were more likely on the "legacy" list along with folks like Nick Lowe, Richard Thompson, and a couple others. He was having a ball. Well, they all were. Kurt stepped to the lip of the stage ripping solo's a time or two, despite
