  1. Hanson. I was 10 and didn't want to go.
  2. 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.
  3. I would love Blackstar with Spencer on drums. I adore that whole album.
  4. 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
  5. I'll take posts that aged poorly for 1000, Alex.
  6. 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
  7. 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.
  8. Bright Leaves I think this is mostly right.

  9. Sturgill Simpson tested positive. Judging by his post, he seems super fortunate. https://pitchfork.com/news/sturgill-simpson-tests-positive-for-covid-19/
  10. Died from coronavirus complications. https://www.rollingstone.com/music/music-country/john-prine-obit-253684/
  11. My earliest memory of Fountains of Wayne with the perfect song for the times then and now.
  12. I wasn't the biggest fan of his play-by-play, but he was amazing as an analyst to John Rooney. Extremely nice guy when I met him a few years ago at an event at the school I was working at at the time.
  13. In 2003 Fountains of Wayne was on before Wilco on the same stage at Summerfest. Fifteen year old me was out of my mind happy.
  14. RIP Adam Schlesinger. One of my musical heroes. https://www.rollingstone.com/music/music-news/fountains-of-waynes-adam-schlesinger-dead-obituary-coronavirus-975786/
  15. His lawyer, Josh Grier (who I think is/was Wilco's lawyer as well), says he is not in a medically-induced coma: https://www.rollingstone.com/music/music-news/fountains-of-wayne-adam-schlesinger-hospital-coronavirus-975653/
  16. Pretty sure that’s Sue’s favorite song.
  17. Instagram stories are up for 24 hours, then gone.
  18. Chicago Public Schools clearly does not have a plan. My school has over 900 people in it. My wife's school has 5,000 people (students plus staff) in it. My school still does not have any hand sanitizer. They say there should not be any unnecessary visitors to schools, yet on Tuesday thousands of people will be entering over 500 schools that serve as polling places. What about kids that need to eat? CPS received federal funding for a waiver to do a meals on wheels program. So many districts around the country are shutting down schools. It seems Chicago Public Schools knows what the right thing
  19. I would like to give a hearty middle finger to Lori Lightfoot. No gatherings of over 250 people. That’s the lunch period in my school. My wife’s school has over 4,500 students in it.
