    Oh that's a great backstory! So she wanted to remember how, or maybe check that her way was right.

    How'd you know her in HS?

     

    She was a grade lower than me and Wilco wasn't especially popular with high school students in the early to mid 2000s (shocker, I know). I think it was one of those things where someone said something along the lines of, "You know that one band you like? There's someone else here who actually likes them too."

    It's really funny to me that Sima asked Jeff to show how to play Chinese Apple when she showed me how to play the riff back in high school.


  3. Listening and making music is literally the only thing that has seemed relatively normal during the pandemic. Making music at the very least gives me something to focus on besides the pandemic. I've lost interest in a lot of other things that I love like reading, cooking, gaming with my friends, and puzzling/playing cards with my wife. My job can be pretty punishing with the sheer amount of time in front of a screen (I'm a teacher and my district has no interest in improving remote learning conditions for their teachers and students) and I get constant migraines due to it.

    I can hear them talking on their radios

        G                                                     Bm

    Well, I keep my head underneath my pillow

     Am            G                                  C

    Out on the tollway, stopping at the tolls

      G                                            Bm

    I'd like to find out why she had to go

     Am                   G                            C

    My heart wants what a heart can't control

      G                                                       Bm

    Now I hang in the air as the light gets cold

     Am                        G                                 C

    And I hide in her shadows welcome her home

    Capo 5
    
    [Intro]
    C  D G
     
     
    G
    At the last, last call
                                    D7
    When it's time for us all
     
    To say goodbye
                               C D7
    I know I'm gonna cry
                               G
    Know I'm gonna cry
     
    G
    Because all in all
                            D7
    I'm just having a ball
     
    Being alive
                                  C D7
    And I don't want to die
                  G
    I don't wanna die
     
               C              D7
    At the end of the end
    D           G         C           D7 
    Of this beautiful dream we're in
         C        D7
    I'll wake up again
      G          C
    A robin or a wren
                  D
    And then I'll sit
       G
    Outside your window
                D7
    I'll sing a song you'll recognize
                       C D
    And you won't know why
                   G
    You won't know why
     
    C D G C D7 C D G C D
     
               G
    And then a teardrop will fall
                           D7
    Into the corner of the smile
     
    On your face
                 C D
    And I'll be alive
             G
    I'll be alive
             C D
    I'll be alive
             G
    I'll be alive
              C D
    I'll be alive
             G
    I'll be alive

    I'm listening to a lot of Gorillaz right now. They did a live concert last week in support of their latest album which was fantastic. When it comes to the holiday music, I have a playlist which of bunch of random holiday songs, . If you haven't already, check out the album "Socks" by JD McPherson. Really good, original holiday album.

  8. Lindsey Graham can fuck off forever:

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/brad-raffensperger-georgia-vote/2020/11/16/6b6cb2f4-283e-11eb-8fa2-06e7cbb145c0_story.html

     

    Quote

    In their conversation, Graham questioned Raffensperger about the state’s signature-matching law and whether political bias could have prompted poll workers to accept ballots with nonmatching signatures, according to Raffensperger. Graham also asked whether Raffensperger had the power to toss all mail ballots in counties found to have higher rates of nonmatching signatures, Raffensperger said.

     

    Raffspenger said he was stunned that Graham appeared to suggest that he find a way to toss legally cast ballots. Absent court intervention, Raffensperger doesn’t have the power to do what Graham suggested, as counties administer elections in Georgia.

    GA still has provisional and military ballots to count, which probably outnumber Biden's lead.  That could tip it back to Trump, but with PA all but locked down GA won't matter.  But as a Georgia citizen, I really hope the lead holds for Biden here.  The farther over 270 we can get the better. 

     

    I think someone (may have been an official in Georgia) said that it could be as low as 50 or as much as 8,900 of those ballots in Georgia.
