  1. At least one republican senator (Mike Lee from Utah) has tested positive. He and the president of Notre Dame, who has also tested positive, were both at her nomination ceremony. I wouldn't be surprised if we hear of a few more cases from that event.
  2. It could possibly solve one (or more than one) of many problems: gets him out of future debates allows for a complete reset of his campaign (likely counting on Biden to take the gentleman's stance on this one, and "pause" his campaign while Trump is out of commission) allows him to pop up in two weeks and say "see, no worse than the flu!"; or, "hydroxychloroquine works!" allows him to bow out of the race entirely, which would give the entire republican party cover to say that they would have won, if only Trump had been healthy Also, none of these even require him to know about this plan! The republican party could have orchestrated this whole thing, either giving him the virus or just telling him he's got it! (I saw a tweet last night addressing all of these conspiracy theories and then landing on "Occam's razor: he's dumb and he caught it". Yep, that is highly likely.)

  5. This is what's on the "shows" page:
  6. The modern music industry is built almost entirely on Black art. The wealth that rightfully belonged to Black artists was stolen outright and to this day continues to grow outside their communities. No one artist could come close to paying the debt we owe to the Black originators of our modern music and their children and grandchildren. As an individual I have recognized the unfairness of the life I live in relation to the deprivation of people whose work mine is but a shadow of. I’ve tried to compensate for those inequities in both my public and private life. It hasn’t been enough. I’ve often thought there should be an industry-wide plan to address this enormous injustice. Considering that our business prides itself on its progressive ideals and commitments to social justice, I’ve waited, thinking we would eventually put some type of sustained tithing in place — some initiative that would allow us all to redirect a portion of our revenue to the communities that have been deprived of it. I’ve resisted being the one to initiate such a plan for reasons I find unpersuasive now. I feel it’s important to pledge my personal commitment to paying this debt, and to publicly ask every one of my peers to work toward doing the same. What I propose going forward is a program that allows songwriters and musicians to direct a percentage of their “writer’s share” revenue to organizations that assist and support Black communities. This could take the shape of a box to check on rights management contracts, putting it at the foundation of our business. Or it could take another shape entirely. I don’t possess the expertise to manifest this initiative, but I can begin to do my part by committing 5% of my writer revenue to organizations that are working toward racial justice, which include but are not limited to Movement for Black Lives and Black Women’s Blueprint. To BMI, ASCAP, SESAC, and all other organizations that collect and disburse songwriter’s royalties, I ask you to please investigate a way to implement such a program. To industry leaders: please join me in forming a coalition. My small contribution alone is a sincere but insufficient gesture. Hundreds of us joining together could provide some tremendous relief. Thousands of us committing to a reparations initiative could change our business and the world we live in. Black Lives Matter. Thank you. - Jeff Tweedy
  7. I just checked my ticketmaster account, and it looks like all three of the shows I had (SF, Oakland, and San Jose) have "request refund" options now. I don't think that was there the last time I looked. It's still saying that they don't know yet if the shows will be cancelled or rescheduled. (I know if you didn't buy through ticketmaster this doesn't necessarily help you. )
  8. FYI, we received this notice today: So, it shouldn't be much of an outage, but if we're down for a bit, please just check back in 30 minutes.

    Right now, I'd say that was taken in social distancing hell. Or maybe that's heaven, when we can all be packed together like that again! These are great, Charles, thank you. I love Nels with the lamp!
  10. This is all of us, on one topic or another, during shutdown.
  11. Interesting. I'm wondering if there's a timeframe for postponements baked into the no-refunds policy? Good to hear, anyway!
