  1. I just stumbled across this bit of triva that Wilco preformed "The Rainbow Connection" with Kermit The Frog. Anyone have a video of this? https://muppet.fandom.com/wiki/Wilco
  2. My very first concert when I was in the 6th grade. Someone I always loved introducing to other. Going to listen to some tonight. My
  3. Sounds like what my wife is going through. Had slight chest pain last Sunday. Fever/cough Monday. Dr via video said she probably had it. No test available. Took it easy (no working/sleeping in) M-W. Felt better on Thursday, then nose dived Friday. Almost went to the ER. tele-doc said not to unless she couldn't talk cause they would just send her home. Saturday felt up to a walk around the block. Barely made it. In our small apartment not really an option for me not to get infected. I had a fever for a day about 2 weeks ago (? it all blends together); so hopefully I have already been through it
  4. Sending vibes to you Sarah and chckrh. Trying to stay positive here in Denver. Trying to spread the cheer by getting to-go beer and food from the places closest to us that have had to close. Heard of at least 1 place (Welton St Cafe) that had to fire their whole staff. My Dad is a Dr. in central Iowa. They had 9 test kits for the town of 15,000. He is waiting until the nursing homes he works for get it and then he does too.
  5. Thanks for the help. Sorry for the ads. I forgot that they do that pretty hard.
  6. Hi, I have this table: https://www.highfashionhome.com/products/flourish-dining-table It is wood, but painted white. It is looking less than stellar and only about 2 years old. I am a novice when it come to maintaining 'good' furniture. I have tried google, but to put it lightly there is too much information. Wax, polish, varnish, sealants oh my! Anyone a DIY'er who has had to spruce up painted wood who has advice? (PS it was a wedding present from our families)
  7. I think my concern is that Biden will get the nomination because: "it his turn" or something similar. Everytime some (either party) gets the nomination because it's their turn they loose. Hilary, Romney, McCain, Kerry, Gore, Dole, even Mondale. Need some new blood I am generally libertarian, but the recent Republican party is full of crazy people. I would vote for Harris at this point as the best to win with a VP candidate who actually matter not Tim "who?" Kaine.
  8. But if we can't hear how it 'really' sounds, is that how it really sounds? If you can never hear something the way it was intended then it is no good to anyone. I would take a streamed Spotify version of Coltrane over one that I am only allowed to listen to on the world greatest sound system to 'really get the honest version'. Limp Bizkit mostly in jest. Though excluding full length unreleased albums from world famous artists, what is really lost? We have 'lost' thousands upon thousands of silent films due to many different causes. Does that make our current movies worse? Or more directly,
  9. So I read the article when it came out and I am at a loss really. I am not really sure why we should care? I am a librarian (by training) so understand the need for preservation, but I don't really think most people need to hear every out take of limp bizket or nearly anyone else. The article makes it pretty clear that only recently have record companies thought these were worth keeping and then only to endlessly issue 'remastered' versions of the same songs. Most people don't have the ear or equipment to hear the real difference between different formats or copies.
  10. Just finished this: Strangers in Their Own Land: Anger and Mourning on the American Rightby Arlie Russell Hochschild One of the best books I have read in a long time. I would recommend it for anyone who feels like they can't understand where the other political side is coming from.
  11. Depending on how long you have lived in Denver I live in 3 places: 5 Points, Curtis Park, or RiNo. I usually claim Curtis Park first to see if people know where that is.
  12. Read, "the lost city of the monkey good: a true story" and "Astrophysics for people in a hurry" on planes this weekend. Started "The buried giant" too. I started using my wife's Kindle and forgot how much I read when I can just turn the page to the next book instead of having to figure out what to read. (got all from my library too).
  13. I work for a tech company in Denver. We just got aquired but I have not had any changes. I used to work for libraries and have my MLIS.
  14. Yes good news, day to day nothing should change at all which is nice. Yeah
  15. Today my company went public.
