Ahoy! Wow is this Mudhoney? Am I getting some sort of edumacation again? Totally reminds me of the Replacements
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:08am Brian D:

Good morning all. It's almost as if Darren and I planned a trip to Seattle...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:14am Scott67:

Delta has hit us down here now. Our Conservative Government fucked the Vaccine Rollout. I'm still waiting for my first. NSW & Victoria are Locked Down again.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:17am Scott67:

But hey, there's always Beer!
Cheers!πŸΊπŸ˜ŽπŸ€™
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:21am Brian D:

@Scott. Stay safe. No govt has responded well to this, sadly.
  3:23am Dr Chill:

UK did! We are all vaxed up and life back to normal!! All praise to King Boris.
  3:25am Dr Chill:

All hail our Conservative government!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:26am diciassette:

Well, I'm grateful that throwing shit tons of money at a vaccine was something the last administration was actually capable of.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:27am diciassette:

Conservatism may still be the death of us all.
  3:27am Dr Chill:

Never!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:27am Scott67:

Death of the Planet.🌏
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:28am diciassette:

Yes, that thing.
  3:28am Dr Chill:

Left wing govts are incompetent; at least in UK they are.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:29am Scott67:

Chill, not here to debate your choices.
  3:29am Dr Chill:

previous commenters did; why single me out?
  3:30am Dr Chill:

wait, i think i know why!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:31am Scott67:

Because I'm in Australia, & stating facts that do not aply to you.
  3:31am Dr Chill:

????
  3:33am Dr Chill:

Conservatives RULE!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:34am Scott67:

You just proved why I singled you out.
  3:35am Dr Chill:

cuz youre a bitter lefty lol
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:36am diciassette:

I am very interested in the concept of competence/incompetence. It seems to me that if one has simple and clear objectives it's much easier to define a criteria as to what competence is. Is the objective met? Is the objective in line with my concerns? Does it really matter who gets fucked over?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:39am Scott67:

Chill. If that simple delusion brings you comfort in your ignorance, so be it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:40am diciassette:

The White Stripes are serious fun!
  3:41am Dr Chill:

i've been called a variant of interest
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:43am diciassette:

Manics! Paulo where are yoooo
  3:44am Dr Chill:

Paolo who?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:44am Scott67:

Was thinking just that diciassette. πŸ‘πŸ˜Ž
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:44am diciassette:

Paulo AD, our resident Welshman
  3:45am Dr Chill:

loves all the Welsh acts does he?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:46am diciassette:

I learned late in life that I was part Welsh. So many things to figure out. Dr. Chill are you Welsh?
  3:47am Dr Chill:

my great grandmother wuz Welsh
  3:51am Blasted:

A new mask mandate went into effect tonight in Los Angeles...everyone, vaccinated or not, has to wear masks indoors now, due to the Delta variant. And we just reopened a month ago. I am fully vaccinated and lefty, I think this is a ploy to get unvaccinated people to get doses. Yes, we need more people to get vaccinated to reach herd immunity but not when it means continued chaos.
  3:55am Dr Chill:

Los Maskeles
  3:56am Blasted:

And UK isn't doing great. Your vaccinated health secretary just tested positive.
  3:57am Dr Chill:

big deal; he has hardly any symptoms, cuz he is fully vaxed
  3:58am Blasted:

Are you okay with lots of unvaccinated people dying?
  3:58am Dr Chill:

as is everyone in the UK
  3:59am Dr Chill:

hospital admittance for covid is falling, even tho covid cases are rising. We are all good here.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:02am diciassette:

I love Sydney accints. Has anyone seen Starstruck? Isn't this Courtney?
  4:02am Dr Chill:

Barnett
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:02am Scott67:

Courtney!!! Cheers Brian!

99 clicky stars is fairly rare innit
  4:03am Blasted:

That might not be true for long. I haven't checked the statistics for the UK lately, but the unvaxxed make up around 99% of new cases and deaths in America. Again, I ask are you okay with lots of unvaxxed people dying? I hope for the best for everyone.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:03am Brian D:

With you, Di. Love her accent, especially on this track. And apparently we're not alone.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:03am Scott67:

100 now.🌟
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:04am diciassette:

Everything wrong is imaginary
  4:04am Dr Chill:

but there arent any unvaxed ppl in UK
  4:04am Dr Chill:

For some reason, Brits are all smart enough to get vaxed
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:05am diciassette:

Good on ya!
  4:06am Blasted:

Yes, it's great around 90% of people in the UK have gotten one dose! But we need people to get both doses for the vaccine to be effective so we can reach herd immunity. Only around 65% of people in the UK have gotten both doses.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:07am diciassette:

Did he just say he was feeling FRENCH?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:07am Scott67:

Love her diciassette. It's not just a Sydney accent mate! I sound like that too.πŸ‘πŸ˜Ž
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:08am Brian D:

READING French. But same thing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:09am diciassette:

Another mondragoon for spaghetti head!
  4:11am Blasted:

@Scott, I hope you can get your first dose soon. Hang in there! :)
  4:11am Dr Chill:

if they got one dose, then theyll be getting the 2nd dose in the next few weeks
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:12am diciassette:

"Concluded" is the new "Published"?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:13am Scott67:

Blasted, thanks mate.πŸ˜ŽπŸ€™
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:15am Scott67:

Nice one Brian.πŸ‘πŸ˜‰
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:28am Scott67:

Thanks Brian.✌😎
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:35am diciassette:

I feel like watching Starstruck would make anybody fall in love with Sydney in the same way that watching Muriel's Wedding would make anybody fall in love with seaside towns they forgot to close down. ps I am Pablo Honey

*hooked right up to the cathode ray
Avatar 4:37am Rob Gee:

Hi... been reading 'Magic For Beginners' by Kelly Link... I love magical realism lately
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:37am diciassette:

It gets a bum rap from time to time!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:39am Brian D:

I've not read Link, but love some of the masters of the genre, RG.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:40am Brian D:

And I'll make seeing Starstruck a to-do, Di.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:42am Ciggy:

I think you guys have moved on to other subjects...
I have a cousin from Colombia, South America. She flew into Miami & got her jab(s) about six weeks ago. She has a fever and frequent coughing. She has now tested positive for the coronavirus. Just found out Friday night. Details are sketchy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:43am diciassette:

Is it 10 and 25? I feel like it's important to know the Factory numbers.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:45am Brian D:

Sorry to hear about your cousin, Ciggy. My best to her. The vaccines aren't perfect, unfortunately.
  4:48am Blasted:

Sorry to hear that Ciggy. I hope she feels better soon. As for reading, I love to read but haven't been able to focus on reading much of any for the past year. Can't even remember what good articles I've read lately!
  4:48am Blasted:

*any books
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:48am Scott67:

Best wishes Ciggy.✌
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:49am Brian D:

I know the feeling, Blasted. My usual fare is crime fiction. Big fan of Scots writer -- and former London Records creative director -- Alan Parks' books.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:51am diciassette:

Soccer Mommy is giving me a lilting sort of Camera Obscura whomp
  4:52am Blasted:

For some reason your mention of crime books made me think of James Ellroy's The Black Dahlia (based on a true story)...read that around 15 years ago and thought it was great.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:56am Brian D:

Ellroy is one of my faves. I've read EVERYTHING by him. His shopping lists, FFS.
  4:58am Blasted:

Cool, that's the only book of his I've read. I don't usually read crime fiction. Maybe I'll try something else by him.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:17am diciassette:

William Kennedy much? I've read Sacred Bones and want to learn more.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:18am Brian D:

Not at all. Will add to the list, Di.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:19am diciassette:

Wire is the shirt. Sacred Bones happens in Albany. I have not seen nor read Ironweed.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:20am diciassette:

It's actually Very Old Bones, I have had cognitive interference from a record label again.
