  1. The Carpenters were huge at that time. My older sisters were big fans then.
  2. First one with parents - Grand Old Opry in 1974 (then again in 75, 76, etc.) First one by my own choice - The Kinks, June 1983, Portland, Maine.
  3. Promising was a highlight for me, as was Can You Get to That. The Schmilco songs sound better as solo acoustic numbers to me. I think this is because I do not care for the full band versions on the record. I did not think that the band added much to the songs, other than on Locator and Someone to Lose. I know there are lots of fans of the record, though, and that I am likely an outlier on this.
  4. I frequently alternate between fiction and non-fiction as well. I read this one back in April. I love his writing. If there has been a silver lining to having COVID-19, it is the number of books that I have had the time to read. I have read north of 25 books since I came down with symptoms on March 21st. I recommend the new Anne Tyler book (Redhead by the Side of the Road) for those who like her writing style. As you all have likely read, some people who are symptomatic (5%, 10%?) have symptoms that wax and wane for months. I have been on a roller coaster of symptoms since 3/21. Upward trajectory for sure, and at this rate I figure I will be symptom free in a month or so. Then I'll be back to my regular reading habits of a book every two weeks or so. Wear a mask, give yourself space from others, wash your hands, avoid long periods inside with others who are not in your bubble. Do your very best to not get this dastardly virus.
  5. Might be my favorite as well.
  6. It is a great rock record. I like it more now than when it came out. I realized recently that Peter Buck is turned up to 11 on it - what's not to love?
  7. I thought about it being the first song they play in their first show after the pandemic. I will be surprised if it is not.
  8. He made everything he appeared in better.
  9. I thought False Prophet was pretty good, too. I tend to focus on his vocal inflections - that is where I try to get a sense of how "into it" he is. It is really noticeable in concert, as sometimes he is just garbling it up and other times he is precise in his phrasing. On False Prophet, it seems like he is paying close attention to his phrasing. Like he is trying. And I appreciate that, as he is 79 years old and could just keep mailing it in.
  10. I lived south of Miami from 69-74. We had 2 season tickets for our family of 7 - each of us 5 kids got to go with my dad to one game a year. Don Shula was a god down there then. RIP.
  11. ^^^^Thanks for the advice on this one. I am adding it to my reading list.
  12. ^^^^^Thank you for sharing that. It helped me understand what the future might look like.
