    I know he was really old, but aw man, Carl Reiner died.

    A local hip hop artist that I like quite a lot: the master of the turntable Kid Koala. His Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is great and funny.

    I had to google who that was. Rob Reiner's dad!

    I managed to get myself up to the polling station to vote for the Dem who’s going to end up losing to that asshat John Cornyn.

    And Amy McGrath got the nod in Kentucky. Damn.

    Although she's really not my kind of Democrat, I will be quite happy if she manages to beat McConnell.

    I still listen to some MF Doom. I really like that King Geedorah record.

    Have we talked about Rafael Saadiq in here? I never get tired of him.

    You mean Take Me to Your Leader? Dumile has too many aliases. My favorite record of his is probably Vaudeville Villain.

    Love that one, too.

    The funniest was when there were impostor MFDooms in copies of his mask who would pantomime like they were performing for the crowd.

    Really? I didn't know that. Was that a gimmick, or was he trying to get out of performing?

    He says Doom is a character and sometimes he "might" decide to direct another performer in the role. There are a bunch of vids on YT of fake/impostor Dooms. There may also have been cases of others doing it as a scam, or in a few cases, bc it was easier than giving the audience their money back when Dumile didn't show.

    I absolutely loved the Reiner Steve Martin movies.

    Rand Paul To Federal Health Officials: 'We Shouldn't Presume That A Group Of Experts Somehow Knows What's Best'

    Yeah, experts. What do they know, right?

    Texas bar owners protest the shutting down of bars by Gov. Abbott

    Could someone tell the brainiacs in the link above that Texas had yet another record new case day (close to 7000 cases)?

    That was fully worth my time and attention. Thank you.
  • moetownmoetown Posts: 2,305
    The first 45 seconds or so had me cracking up. Thank you for that.

    More new COVID-19 cases in Arizona today (population 7MM) than the entire European Union (population 446 MM).

    I'm in the unenviable position of strongly suggesting to A____ that he skip his next semester at CMU. We failed. There's no safe way for them to open up campus in any meaningful way. He'd be paying a fortune to stay at home and take Zoom classes. That might work for engineering majors, but not music or any performing art.

    Thankfully I started this conversation a while ago, and he seemed to agree that if it's going to look like the end of Spring semester, it wasn't worth it to him.

    Ugh. My school district is going to send us all back August 6th. Crazy Texas.

    All cable channels should be obligated to warn viewers before airing those damn ASPCA ads. I can’t handle seeing those at all.

    This is turning out to be an expensive month. I decided to pay for my home owner’s insurance all at once rather than monthly. After that, I found out my dental insurance won’t cover the procedure I had to have done. Then yesterday, my downstairs a/c unit stopped working. Looks like I picked the wrong time to stop sniffing glue.
  • captqitncaptqitn Posts: 2,763
    Eesh. So sorry.

    Yeah, we got hit with some big ass vet bills when three of our cats all got sick in a matter of a few days.

    Had to chuck out plans to get a new guest room (my snore jail) bed.

    That's a straight up hassle. Sorry, man.

    Anybody doing anything fun for the holiday?
  • captqitncaptqitn Posts: 2,763
    Hauling dirt into garden beds in a heat wave. :(

    S____ is dog-sitting the next few days so I am home completely alone (except for the cats) until Sunday night. Fucking BORED! Guess I'll finish that painting.

    Yeah, unemployment benefits are so good right now I have more money in the bank than I've had probably ever. If my luck runs true to form something will come up that makes me have to spend all of it. Hopefully they extend the benefits til the end of the year because I could have like $10,000 saved up. Time to invest? Do you guys have any investments? I know nothing about that shite.

    I noticed water coming out from beneath the fridge. Figured out it was the water line to the ice-maker. Found the leak on the tube and have been trying to fix it but so far no luck. So I turned the water line off and bought some ice-cube trays. Problem solved.
