  1. i guess it is Jeff's vocals. It sounded so similar to the voice at the beginning of each track, which is quite annoying btw, I thought it was different. Kinda less impressed now.
  2. after the first listen, it seems just ok. I guess I wanted more. The remix of the music isn't much. It is pretty close to the original. I guess the only thing that is different is the vocals, which is not Jeff (I believe Barry Jenkins). Way too deep and misses the vulnerability that Jeff expressed on YHF. But I def applaud the effort.
  3. I had Palace 1919 and it is freaking amazing, but it was stolen and I never made a digital copy.
  4. I just do not get the stream of consciousness / straight up narration that his music has become. It would be one thing if it was interesting or was trying to say something, but damn this just stupid.
  5. Anyone else notice Glenn was wearing a Late Night with Seth Meyers shirt?
  6. Your take is bad. Here is a example using my county in WI So it is not about you, or the majority of Americans who will get this and be fine, it is about protecting the most vunerable amongst us.
  7. I was wrong, he won American Samoa. At least we no that billionaires can’t buy elections
  8. You misunderstood. My progressive friends are willing to watch the whole thing burn if Sanders is NOT the nominee. Which I agree is a pretty shitty thing to do. Bloomberg will not win one primary.
  9. I have heard from my progressive friends that it appears that if Bernie is not the nominee (especially due to some "Super-delegate" trickery), they are willing to sit home again in an effort to have the Democratic Party burn to the ground. Also there will be no way you will have two far left politicians on a ticket. Bernie is going to be saddled with the Socialist tag. He will need someone to even him out. Pete Buttiege is really angling himself for a VP slot.
  10. I know there are some fans here and Echo Mine, Califone's first new album in 7 years comes out tomorrow. Stereogum has a an article and preview https://www.stereogum.com/2069877/califone-echo-mine/music/album-stream/?fbclid=IwAR0cUjfjk6JBrL13tkOdxFThrRspHdrIRtiFrt5CfSQHZ8PWihASQIWxNTI Like what I hear so far. Califone albums, at least to me, take several listens to realize their brilliance.
  11. I'll take losing "2020 Democratic tickets for $400, Alex."
  12. If he were a Republican he might be a nominee for the 2024 election. Also Iowa, way to show the Democrats have a strong handle on the election and showing there will be no problems with the general. What a shit show.
  13. When there are potentially billions of dollars involved people will try to do whatever. Look at the players who use steroids. It is illegal, it damages their health, and can get them banned from the game. Yet every year there is a person who gets busted for it. It all comes down to dollars. The culture that encourages cheating is capitalism. Simple as that. And there is nothing MLB can do to stop it. If it is not stealing signs, it will be something else. This is the society we live in. It also appears that Carlos Beltran is now out as manager of the Mets because of this.
  14. Can a President be impeached multiple times? Asking for a friend.
  15. My dad has always said it is easier to fire the manager then it is to fire the whole team. Which I think is the case here. If you were to punish the players, it would have to be in the way of fines or suspensions, but trying to figure out who knew what and at what time I think would be extremely difficult. A world series championship likely brings in 100s of millions of dollars (billions maybe) to a club. Not only during that season, but merchandise, increase ticket sales in the future, new TV contracts, etc. So when we start talking money that large you will see people trying to get e
  16. Remember when misspelling potato pretty much derailed not only the political career of one man, but an entire administration?
  17. Has there ever been a moment in history that has felt so mundane. We all know how this will play out. My fear is that POTUS 45 will be emboldened to do more audacious things. Regardless of what you think about POTUS 45 the one thing he has done is eschewed the norms of politics. He has done and said things that have completely torpedoed other politicians. Is this just a blip on the radar or will this outlast him as a president? 10, 25, 50, 100 years historians will look back and see this very moment as a turning point in our country, and yet for a majority of Americans it is the battl
  18. I was at that game. It was deeply sad.
  19. And Rizzo exits early with an ankle injury that does not look good. The Cubs at this point are held together with gum, duct tape and the tears of Chicago faithful.
  20. The NL has now gotten to the point were it is tough to tell how it is going to shake out. I read this and man if anyone these happen it would be a crazy time in the MLB https://www.mlb.com/dbacks/news/crazy-2019-mlb-playoff-tiebreakers
  21. Shortly after the election in 2016 I was talking to co-worker. He said, "It won't be that bad. Trump is known for hiring good people. So there will be good people around him to help him make decisions." Every time someone is fired or does something extremely stupid in the Trump administration I remind him of this.
  22. But Joe Biden is. He is Democratic Establishment's choice, basically the same roll that Hillary was in 2020. I have already heard talk (non Russian trolls btw) that Millennials (aka Bernie Bros) will sit out if Joe gets the nod. So yeah, the Bernie Bros would rather burn it all down if they don't get their way.
