I'm picturing someone trying to put the mask on Noel's face while he squirms around flailing his arms like a 5 year old. "STOP IT! THIS IS FUCKING BOLLOCKS!"

I dunno Noel, maybe they need to remove the mask to insert the food into their mouth?

Public transit is like the #1 place to be wearing a mask :bvs:

I had to do a training downtown last Friday and took the subway. I had a cloth mask on with a more traditional surgical mask over that and even then I felt anxious with so many people wearing no masks at all. The masks cover the pervasive urine smell that cloaks the city of angels, so I'm no sure why anyone would be against wearing them here.

I'm not defending his stance on masks, but I think the point about restaurants is the inconsistency involved with saying being maskless at a gym, for example, is a clear transmission risk, but not so in a bar or restaurant. IMO restaurants should still be takeout only and bars shouldn't be open at all.

He definitely has pretty much always referred to himself as Meat as though it was a first name....it's bizarre...but so is he.

I still love him.

I agree with you, I'm very glad that LA has continued to leave inside dining closed. I do also agree with allowing for outside dining at restaurants. When they briefly opened the gyms with no masks, I was not for it, but they DID eventually require masks again, before shutting the gyms back down altogether.

I have taken the subway in NYC a few times in the last few weeks but generally felt pretty safe. I'd say 90 to 95% mask compliance over here, and it helps that the trains are still so empty (my main line, the L, is generally overcrowded at most times, and I could find a seat with nobody remotely close to me on a weekday). I actually miss the subway a good deal, it's such a vital part of NYC. Although I now have a CitiBike membership and it has been fun to explore some different areas.

Few starts to any album have blown me away on first listen like 3rd Planet/Gravity Rides Everything/Perfect Disguise. I was like 16 at the time and it encapsulated everything I was feeling so perfectly.

I didn't get into the entire album until years later but man it really stuck with me. Probably a top 10-20 album for that decade.

Liam is a straight-up bozo even without bad politics.

The Black Album is Jay-Z's best album.

If Reasonable Doubt (#1) and The Blueprint (#2) didn't exist, yes.

Can't get on board with that "first album is the best" bullshit. Not with an artist as good as Jay-Z.

It's The Blueprint at the top.

Blueprint I can accept at the top. It's iconic and influential.

Thing is, as a lyricist and rapper, Jay was never better across a full album than he was on Reasonable Doubt. It's actually startling to listen to albums like Magna Carta Holy Grail and then go back to Reasonable Doubt and hear how confident, witty and fluid he sounded there.

Can't Knock the Hustle/Politics as Usual/Brooklyn's Finest/Dead Presidents II (perhaps his best song)/Feelin' It/D'evils is as good a run as exists in hip hop.

There's no doubt it's a phenomenal debut.

Of course, I don't think Jay has slipped as far in general as many do. You're right about Magna Carta too, but The Blueprint III is better than it has any right to be, and 4:44 was surprisingly solid and different.

I mean, the guy is a billionaire, how good should one expect his output to be at this point?
