  1. Released a single today! Can be found here: https://modernhistory.bandcamp.com/ Or here: https://music.apple.com/us/album/inevitable-race-to-the-bottom-single-single/1538054453
  2. Haha, I'll get after it soon. I'm a teacher and remote teaching is kicking my ass.
  3. I'm pretty sure he mentioned that he wanted to get this record out there and the production of CDs and vinyls take time, especially now with COVID.
  4. Having listened to it twice, and I really hope this comes off as positive as possible, but this album is a comfort to listen to.
  5. Personally, I'm not in favor of expanding the Supreme Court, but: -Republicans blocked dozens of judges during President Obama's term. -McConnell didn't event bring up Merrick Garland for a vote. So, I think the Democrats need to start playing on the same field as Republicans. Get rid of the filibuster and pack the court, then for good measure, pass an amendment giving term limits to the Supreme Court justices, and abolish the ridiculous Electoral College.
  6. On Schmilco, Locator is Drop D tuned a half step down, where live it is just Drop D.
  7. What Jeff plays on guitar acoustically on Locator (1:10 in the video) is the same as what he plays electrically on Can't Stand It (0:40 seconds into the video). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ws6mjmDwj7o
  8. I always liked Badfinger's a lot more. It feels like it has more raw emotion and less glitzy production. (Someone in Chicago has to catch things better than Eloy--All the White Sox fans out there will get that joke)
  9. Isn't Without You originally by Badfinger?
  10. Hanson. I was 10 and didn't want to go.
  11. Well said, Jeff. I hope other artists and companies follow suit. It is really refreshing that someone I admire continues to be just a good, thoughtful person.
  12. I would love Blackstar with Spencer on drums. I adore that whole album.
  13. Very close to moving to the Twin Cities a few years ago. Absolutely adore the area. Such a tragic loss of life. I hope they charge, arrest, and successfully prosecute the other three officers involved in George Floyd’s death. Anything less than a successful prosecution will not be enough. This community suffered through enough with the acquittal of Philandro Castile’s killer. I am tired of hearing the “one bad apple” nonsense. That is utter bullshit. Time and time again, African-Americans are being murdered by people sworn to serve and protect. At what point during this officer’s 18 complaints against him does one have to realize, “Maybe this guy shouldn’t be in a position of power.” What is also bullshit that an African-American reporter from CNN and his crew were arrested (for no reason) before the officer who killed George Floyd. I have too many angry thoughts that I’m struggling to coherently put them together.
  14. I'll take posts that aged poorly for 1000, Alex.
  15. Jeff didn't make up those lyrics, they were made up by a kid in this video that went viral a few days ago: https://twitter.com/lisarieffel/status/1256599946226102272?s=21
  16. I was at a living room show back in 2009 where different groups would perform with him. One group did Let's Fight but he had no recollection of it and he stood there and watched the group perform it.
