Options February 6, 2022: "My heart besieged by anger, my mind a gap of danger. I walked among their old haunts, the home ground where they bled; and in the dirt lay justice like an acorn in the winter, ill its oak would sprout in Derry..."β€”Seamus Heaney

Sad news, I love Sinead.🌻
Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 3:20am Paulo AD:

I walked 18 holes on Friday, I was in all sorts of pain at the end of it
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:21am Scott67:

That was only because you couldn't have a beer at the Clubhouse afterwards mate.
πŸΊπŸ˜ŽπŸ€™
Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 3:28am Paulo AD:

Haha there is that
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:29am Brian D:

I never liked the first 18 holes of golf. Only the 19th.
Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 3:29am Paulo AD:

Suck a British way of describing the situation. Its know as the "troubles"
Avatar 🗒 3:29am Don in Tampere:

Good morning from Tampere. Thanks for the Bloody Sunday theme.
Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 3:30am Paulo AD:

There is a great film about this

Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 3:32am Paulo AD:

Watching the rugby last night I was explaining to some Americans how we support anyone but the English in sport haha
Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 3:35am Paulo AD:

I also need to add in the obligatory fuck thatcher
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:36am Brian D:

That goes without saying, Paulo.
Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 3:36am Paulo AD:

Indeed it's does
Avatar 🗒 3:42am Don in Tampere:

There was quite a brouhaha when the current leader of Labour, Keir Starmer, quoted Thatcher against BoJo. Though he didn't directly praise MT, it did point out how much New Labour looks like Old Tory.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:46am Brian D:

Same rightward shift in the US, I'm afraid, @Don.
Avatar 3:48am HyperDose:

Late night Thin Lizzy is very necessary
Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 3:53am Paulo AD:

Anyone use tidal?
Avatar 3:56am HyperDose:

In a way
Avatar 🗒 4:05am Don in Tampere:

Brian, I know what you mean. under Eisenhower . a Republican - top tax rates were around 90%, and now even the progressive Dems don't dare go over 50. Also very clear is the chasm between the US and Europe; even European media called Sanders "radical left" because he advocated for things like free education and universal health care, things that not even conservatives call into question over here.
Avatar 4:06am HyperDose:

Best version of this song I've heard. Much better not having all the bg noise with the live versions.
  4:20am LiXiviated Life:

hello current people

  4:24am LiXiviated Life:

Novelty Island…
(how do they come up
with these delightful
band names?)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:28am Brian D:

Hello Lix. They may use the WFMU Random Band Name Generator. www.pngkey.com...
  4:32am LiXiviated Life:

Oh my
That is genius
  4:34am LiXiviated Life:

Tip toe
around those
HIPA rules
Mr D
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:35am Brian D:

Indeed, Lix. I've already heard from Mrs. Currents' attorney.
  4:40am LiXiviated Life:

Everything seems to have
fallen apart since David B
left
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:42am Brian D:

Does seem that way, Lix.
  4:46am LiXiviated Life:

The image of a sea of people
Trampling one another
Manic and driven by some
Fanaticism
Seems to pretty well
capture the current
Zeitgeist
  4:52am LiXiviated Life:

A band named Antietam
a few minutes ago
Antietam ?
Really??
Maybe the bloodiest battle of the Civil War
and someone thinks
β€œHey guys I got an idea for a Cool band name”
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:55am _Ike_:

Good luck to Mrs. Currents in her medical adventure! May the falafenyl (or whatever meds) shine upon her harmoniously.
  4:55am LiXiviated Life:

Not that it matters
but
this makes me less hopeful
about
Everything
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:55am Brian D:

Think "Brian Jonestown Massacre," @Lix.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:56am Brian D:

Thank you Ike. And greetings!
Avatar 5:02am HyperDose:

Relaxation achieved!
  5:09am LiXiviated Life:

β€œHe brought them to the man
to see what he would name them;
and whatever the man called each living creature,
that was its name.”
  5:10am LiXiviated Life:

We have surrendered our stewardship
  5:12am LiXiviated Life:

Sold for the future for fiat currency
  5:13am LiXiviated Life:

and the earth will shake us off
