It was a birthday surprise for the co-host Matt Spiegel (for those who don't know he is in a great cover band called Tributosaurus).

Wait til you get a couple episodes further… 

Wow, episode 7 with Spiders (Kidsmoke) the soundtrack to the kitchen chaos was stunning. I hope season 2 is as good as season 1 was & they don't ruin it.

Me too. I loved it— my sister worked in restaurants for years and said it was pretty accurate in terms of chaos sometimes.

Maybe this should be in a different thread, but I didn't start it... We are 4 episodes in and thoroughly enjoying The Bear. The soundtrack is excellent and apropos. Thanks again, Chuck.

Perhaps I didn't get it on the right thread but wanted to put it out there. I have a lot (too much) going on right now & was being lazy. Glad I pointed it out to you. I don't know why I hesitated on the series at first. Probably because it was described as a comedy by some & I'm not really into comedy right now. Also, I was a little sick of Jeremy Allen White after the trainwreck that was the end of "Shameless". Glad I saw the error of my ways!

Message boards, like texts, are an imperfect communication method. You did nothing wrong and no apology necessary. I was just being a smart ass. I couldn’t give a damn what thread is what. I was thinking back to the days when people whose entire lives seemed to be VC would get riled up by such egregious behavior. Haha! That’s all.

 

I also was wary of The Bear due to Lip becoming annoying at the end of Shameless. I was happy to see Oliver Platt appear, adding to an already excellent cast.

Patrick saw a guy in the audience who really did look a lot like Jeff and said “hey Tweedy guy, here’s one for you” (or something like that) and then they played Outtasite.

The series centers on White as a fine-dining chef who returns to take over his family’s old-school Chicago restaurant, kicking up all sorts of Midwest recriminations and personality conflicts in the process. All while being soundtracked by a pretty exquisite set of indie music tracks for music nerds of a certain vintage–something highlighted by the teaser’s on-the-nose but hard to argue with choice of Wilco’s “Via Chicago” to underscore the beef-based melancholy of it all.

 

New tag line for VC:  "music nerds of a certain vintage".  :lol

 

 

 

(The Bear probably should have had it's own thread by now!)

"You Never Know" Sirius Howard Stern promo running frequently.

 

Things I never thought I'd hear for $500, Alex

 

 

and I love it.

 

It's Wilco's only number one song! (It hit No. 1 on Billboard's Triple-A chart, which means it was a big fish in a very small pond.)

Secret of the Sea in my local Trader Joe's yesterday 

 

Such a gem. I wish this were the Mermaid tune that was the staple of the live set rather than "California Stars."
