  1. If it had been Derry, those farmers waiting for the cattle auction to begin would have for sure been my relations.
  2. I didn't mean to make this into a political thread, but I'll take it! Thanks! I saw Wilco in a student union location much like bbop describes at Queens, I think it was in San Diego? bbop was there, he might remember it. I don't see anything on Wilcobase that looks like it matches my recollection. Hmmm... Edit: Price Center "Ballroom" at UC San Diego, which is technically in La Jolla! There it is!
  3. Did you know that Trish did her semester abroad at Queens? And a cousin of mine was President of the QU Student Union a couple of years ago. So I should be lodging my complaint about "Northern Ireland" with @Analogman, then?
  4. Unlocked link to the NY Times obituary, for anyone who's out of freebies

    Fall 2023 Dates?

    I thought that too (about the California shows). But now I'm trying to figure out what Cousin references I'm missing!
  6. I went to college with the author. This one is getting crazy great reviews, recommended for fans of quirky music, mysterious disappearances, and obsessively-researched biographies.
  7. I will never understand how you manage this. But I'm always impressed, and always appreciate your reviews!
  8. He also said that the mourners were hurt that he referred to the church as a "musty" old hall. He later sang "rustic old hall".
  9. He changed several of the lyrics to The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald because he realized that as originally written, they were in some way unfair or hurtful to the crew or their survivors. I thought that was lovely, what a kind person he must have been.
  10. I got an e-mail from a local site called Do The Bay about an October show at the Greek Theater in Berkeley: https://dothebay.com/events/2023/10/14/wilco-tickets Wilcoworld is currently showing Ireland in September, then Monterey 10/8 and Berkely 10/14, then straight to Sky Blue Sky in December. I'm assuming there will be some other shows filled in there somewhere?
  11. https://www.avclub.com/new-oscars-teaser-confirms-the-bear-will-be-back-and-se-1850217739 New tag line for VC: "music nerds of a certain vintage". (The Bear probably should have had it's own thread by now!)
  12. This kind of nerdy nonsense is right up my alley, I don't know why I didn't read this whole series decades ago.
  13. From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler is one of my all-time faves, so I'm not sure why I never read anything else by her. I'm well overdue for this one (literally, it was due back to the library yesterday; I'll need to get through it quickly ).
  14. Love this one, I read it many years ago. Due for a re-read!
