  1. This documentary about the distribution of wealth in the world is currently streaming on Netflix. I'm no economic scholar, but I did learn a thing or two from watching it.
  2. In just a few hours, fittingly, he'll just be "Florida man."
  3. I'll be celebrating while wearing my Joe Biden socks and perhaps a campaign button. And I'll be breathing a huge sigh of relief that a certain delusional narcissist no longer has valid nuclear codes. Since I'm working from home I may mix myself a stiff drink while following the inauguration ceremony on TV.
  4. There's a signifiant chance that someone will discover me dead beneath a ginormous pile of books some day. Death by books doesn't seem like a bad way to go.
  5. Thanks so much for sharing and for this particular episode. Dale Murphy was my boyhood hero. I discovered him, the Atlanta Braves, and baseball when my family got cable in 1982. I've had the pleasure of meeting him several times, and he's such a great, genuine guy. On the last occasion I had to meet him, I started our conversation by asking him to name his favorite Wilco album. He was so surprised and delighted by my question that we talked for about ten minutes about music. This episode was a real treat. Listening to my sports idol thoughtfully break down an album by one of my all-time favorite bands (and getting to know a side of my sports idol I never knew existed until recent years) was time very well spent. A fantastic listen.
  6. I discovered Snail Mail by accident last night. One of her songs was playing on satellite radio during my weekly grocery store excursion. It was impressive enough that I listened to Lush last night. Count me as a fan now.
  7. Well said, Donna. Happy New Year to you and to all VC'ers.
  8. Meh. I nearly turned off the move after the first hour and in hindsight I kinda wish I would have. It just didn't do anything for me. .
  9. Just finished watching this film and enjoyed it tremendously. Viola Davis and Chadwick Boseman were incredible. Lagniappe: The Ma Rainey House and Museum in Columbus, Georgia is open for tours. Its curator is Fred Fussell, the father of Solid Sound alumnus and opener for several Wilco shows, Jake Xerxes Fussell.
  10. The holidays aren't as warm and fuzzy for me as they once were. Most of the people in my family who made it special are dead. That includes my dad, whose birthday is Dec. 23 (which serves as a strong reminder of his absence). The pandemic certainly doesn't help. So I'm working a good bit and reading, listening to podcasts and watching movies during my down time. Given all of those factors I've still been in a mostly upbeat mood and listening to Christmas music a good bit. As the big day approaches, however, the whole holiday season thing is getting a little more depressing. No big gift wishes for me. I have more than I need, so I ordered a couple of books to help out an independent book store that was struggling and a couple of CDs. Oh, and I'm expecting my first gooey butter cake to arrive from Russell's in St. Louis some time this week! Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to my fellow VC'ers. Take every chance you have to tell the people you love that you love them.
