It is not known.

I'm having a moment of cognitive dissonance over here. I didn't know anyone hated Maggie May.

Rod ruined a Tom Waits song for me.

I hated Maggie May when I first listened to it. It's not my favorite Rod Stewart song, but it's decent.

"Yes" by Manic Street Preachers is an amazing song. I absolutely love the arrangement, building from a catchy riff to a huge pre-chorus, to an even bigger chorus. It sounds like a single, but it's still very complex.

The rest of that album is growing on me as well. I used to rank Everything Must Go as their best work, but I'm not so sure anymore.

Hi, I'm NSW.

Here is some information, please skip it if you hate reading posts from people who you hate reading posts from.

After living back in NYC for two years, I moved to Los Angeles for the 3rd time this past Spring. I was summoned back to LA by my employers, but, they did not have to twist my arm; I missed LA and was more than ready to return. The only downside was leaving family behind again, but, nothing is ever utopian, etc.

When asked by coworkers and friends if anything seemed to change in LA during the two years I was gone, I would first of all mention that I came back every other month for work, so, it's not like I was truly gone. But, I have noticed two things:

1 - Vape shops and the like are much more ubiquitous. I do not partake on any level but I see many more of them than ever before, at least near where I live and where I work.

2 - Uber/Lyft drivers. So many more of them on the road now than in 2015. No real opinion on this, just an observation.

I guess if I had to name one obvious negative change, it would be a little more micro. There's a specific canyon where I always liked to go hike or just sit and read/listen to music/think. It's also a spot where families come to visit with their young children, perhaps take them on a nice walk, show them nature at work, have a picnic, etc. It was a bit of a hidden gem and I enjoyed every single visit. But, not more than few weeks after I moved back, I saw something pretty disturbing there and it makes me wonder if I'll ever return, not to mention if I'm living in a society whose values and morals continue to diminish. While what I saw left me reeling and taken aback, I had the presence of mind to take a picture of it, and, I feel like I can share it with you all and you'll most likely agree with my reaction.

 


U2 related note -

Since seeing U2 8 times in 14 nights at MSG last Summer, I have not listened to them, at all, since the final show.

Professional note - September/October is a busy time.

Movie note - I am looking forward to seeing this:

Arrival Reviews - Metacritic

Book note - I am currently reading and enjoying this:

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/...4-city-on-fire

TV note - Westworld

Sports note - I enjoy the MLB post-season. Greatly.

That is all.

That's basically my feeling as well. There are other songs I like by him more....this should shock no one.

The new Yuck album is REALLY solid. I am pleased.

While discussing Oktoberfest, I told some coworkers of that picture. They did not believe me, I will force them to believe.

The more some NSWs change, the more they stay the same. Good to see you around these parts, mate.
