And a cheerful New Year to all of the failures. When Frankie came on I was coincidentally reading an article from my hometown about a domestic violence mass murder that happened over the last week.

I have a persistent headache, but I barely had more than half a cup of 'pagne last night. New Year's Day Sober Failure. Arrgh.

Avatar Thu. 1/1/15 3:21pm JakeGould:

Ike, I didn’t drink a drop last night but woke up “hung over” thanks to being out in the cold most of the night. Damned heart beating, blood pumping to keep limbs from freezing hangover.

Thanks RTD. One of my wishes for the coming year is to finally get to see you live. Unlikely, I know, you're as broke as the people who want to see you. But a wish costs nothing

Thx, Fred! Money indeed, root of all evil… or inconvenience at least.

Ike - as Dave Hill says, in his great wisdom, "stay street, stay hydrated". i go for a lot of hours-long walks in the cold and get headaches after if i dont hydrate

olá Fabio ,other fellow failures.
pere ubu through john cale ...i lowered the volume to do something else during the 3 songs i would've enjoyed the most.

Considering how lousy people are at being pedestrians (not to mention drivers), it's surely for the best that JET-PACKS haven't happened yet.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 1/1/15 3:48pm fred:

@steve: good advice. I walk a lot too, best cure I know for hangovers
  Thu. 1/1/15 3:49pm Mark Ohe:

Sounding good Fabio. Keep up the good work.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 1/1/15 3:53pm fred:

@RTD: Jet-packs would blend the worst of drivers, obnoxious bikers, and slow-mo pedestrians. Worst-case scenario to me. Meaning it's probably happening very soon

Frankie had no money. Had to be drinking the cheap stuff.
Avatar Thu. 1/1/15 5:01pm A Curious Canadian Wants to Know.:

Artisanal or domestic? With or without beverage alcohol? Largely egg or mostly nog?
Avatar Thu. 1/1/15 5:02pm slugluv1313:

Yikes, Barrie, where was that?
Although sadly, could be anywhere
Avatar Thu. 1/1/15 5:03pm dale:

mrs. dale is making fresh home made eggnog as we type. should i have rum or scotch on mine?
Avatar Thu. 1/1/15 5:04pm TDK60:

Wasn't here when Nico played but Marble Index is perfect for this time of winter. No alcohol -- 2 types: milk and soy egg nog!

ive never had egg nog, but ive heard its like drinking pancakes, which is appealing to me
  Thu. 1/1/15 5:07pm P-90:

Happy New Failure, @Fabio and everyone.
@coelacanth: suggested resolution: don't turn the volume down in 2015.
Avatar Thu. 1/1/15 5:07pm Sem Chumbo:

@dale: with a good ( not spiced) dark Caribbean rum, something with a little age, 5 years or better, and not from a conglomerate. Just one man's opinion.
Avatar Thu. 1/1/15 5:13pm dale:

well, she made something with fat free parmalat and powdered egg whites. rum is just 'castillo' brand. not what i expected but it isn't 800 calories either.
Avatar Thu. 1/1/15 5:16pm Sem Chumbo:

I see, hadn't considered the dietary angle. Good on you, keeping your head when all about you are losing theirs. Calorie-wise:-P
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 1/1/15 5:16pm Chris from DC:

Bourbon's always good.
Avatar Thu. 1/1/15 5:18pm dale:

hell no, i wanted the real stuff. well, at least there's room for the apple pie i baked later

Blind “Lemon in Hot Water” Goldberg does a decent riff on it as well.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/1/15 5:29pm coelacanth:

Last time i truly enjoyed eggnog was when i was about 18 (that was 1877)...my father used to make it. 3 gallon recipe had something like 2-1/2 quarts (3-1/2?) bourbon,a pint of scotch & a pint of dark red rum. Then it aged for 3 weeks.It was delicious and mellow; and,at 10-12 years old,i remember it sneaking up on me.
Avatar Thu. 1/1/15 5:34pm JackScheff:

Hey Fabio, I already romance my CDs! I hang onto them lovingly in three 90s-style CD binders. I will never give them up.
Avatar Thu. 1/1/15 5:35pm TDK60:

I've heard they, CDs, can get get too humid and then corrode.
Avatar Thu. 1/1/15 5:38pm Sem Chumbo:

@coel: a very elaborate version of *moose milk*, but by God, no matter what its age, that shit will get on top of you with no warning---like hitting a moose in the middle of the highway at 100kph, and having it land in the front seat with you. Everything's fine, then nothing but bloody mayhem.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/1/15 5:38pm common:

thanks for the zombies fabio!

...Clay - reminds me to download podcast of Msr. Pigeon's show last week (has-beens & never-have-beens forming a band); that thing is a keeper !
...I've had CDRs just peel apart - sure it depends on brand & stuff...working the thriftstore, begun to notice CDs being mouldy like vinyl records have been: a threshold crossed...

Ahh.. the Buzzcocks! (Fabio, turn Clay onto them.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/1/15 5:46pm coelacanth:

Sem - i don't think i ever got hit by a moose!, but do recall,the last time -when i was older (18-19?)and was trying to get drunk- that the headache was shadowing the buzz closely.

waking up to a pillow that reeked of cigarettes was the worst part of being a lad and pogoing away in danceteria
  Thu. 1/1/15 5:50pm P-90:

I've said it before: Fab and Clay should try doing a fill-in together, as a duo.

i just checked out the "royal canadian air force"moose milk recipe Sem -it must be similar...lots of heavy cream.
