Re: Vote.

Uh, too late kids. Biden won the Electoral Vote.

Re: March 12, 2020 (aka COVID-19 thread)

Outback publican speaks out after being ATTACKED and FINED for Covid rules (Article includes a 10 min. video.) Tl;dr: after getting hit over the head with a glass by an angry patron, for enforcing COVID regulation "too harshly", the guy later gets fined by cops, in a sting-like operation, for not e...

Re: More Stuff

Concidering all the track layering that went into the original, I'm ok w/ the live version(s) being taken on by interpretive others... I had heard (read?) about the track layering that went on for the original. It was literally unheard of, at the time. edit- And then I clicked the link and found it...

A very interesting take on the Bohemian Rhapsody, done by the Petersons, LIVE! (Something Queen never did, a Live version, that is, according to a comment below the video.)

Re: March 12, 2020 (aka COVID-19 thread)

I have reservations about the famous Covid 19 vaccine. I do think it was rushed, that there may well be secondary effects that won't be known for a while, and so on. Yet the media's handling of progress reports made by President Trump this fall shows again their bias: Trump Made the Media Look Like ...

Re: March 12, 2020 (aka COVID-19 thread)

So how did the Habs do last night, there, Lake? Honestly, I don't know... I don't watch sports. Or TV, generally. I don't think I've turned the TV on once (apart for testing that it worked, that the cable was coming in fine) since moving into my new home... (watches the comment sail right over your...

Re: March 12, 2020 (aka COVID-19 thread)

It occurred to me today, that the NHL, the NFL, the MLB, the NBA, as well as many other professional sports (tennis and more) are so "essential" (a bunch of adults paid to play games, essentially) that they managed to figure out ways to keep them going, but going to the gym is considered "non-essen...

I just finished watching Half-Life & Portal - The Complete Story (What You Need to Know!) , which narrates through the story of the games, with short scenes to illustrate the narration. The video is 33 minutes long, and flows well. While I had read a little bit about Portal, on wikipedia, I was not ...
