Hello all! Sorry for delayed playlist update. Some computer problems at Casa Currents.

I tried to look up how often Easter and Passover and Ramadan, couldn't find the answer, and then was too lazy to do the math for myself.

They found a lump in my toe Bri (along with chronic arthritis) been waiting a week for the results to come back. Had a bit of a wobble with drink last Monday and let it all out

Alhamdulilah love a good benign lump

The relief was palpable. And I had new golf clubs and an interview request in the same day :)

Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 3:54am fred:

Later today I'll go see my father and try to convince him to vote for Macron. Ugh. It's not an easy sell, and not one I want to make. But I see abstaining as a dangerous if morally satisfying choice. Cowardly in a way, not wanting to get dirty while hoping enough people pick up the slack only to be then called out as traitors
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:57am Brian D:

Could you all hear my dog Lira drinking water?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:57am Brian D:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:06am _Ike_:

I had some of the best Vietnamese food I’ve ever eaten in a horrible neighborhood in Philadelphia once, on Kensington Ave. under elevated tracks, an area filled with junkies. The place closes at 8:30 because the neighborhood is so bad.
Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 4:07am Paulo AD:

Fred, I hear you brother. But a one but le pen
Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 4:08am fred:

@Brian: I don't know, turnout will be key: Le Pen voters will definitely show up, but on the left there is a big feeling of being played for fools and not wanting to give Macron what he will call a mandate (also some on the left want Le Pen to win to shake things up and get people in the streets, of course they're not first in the line of fire there, and probably won't get in those streets)

Fred I would offer some hope, but after seeing the shit show that is UK politics :(
There is often an argument/ heated debate about left wing politics in our house, mostly about who's more left haha

Usa left is basically center for the UK, but keri is off the charts left

feel bad about the period you know...the war background + polotical disaster.....well springtime is my season at least that's fine, we may have a third round in the streets yes! there is no alternative...Anyway I'm cooking a Tarte tatin and jumping on my bike soon to travel this beautiful land at my parent's in Provence, let's hope and wish for better days! Hello out there Fred Paulo Scott Brian & friends
Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 4:15am fred:

@Paulo: Like DSA left, the milder Dissent crowd (I'm a subscriber), or further left?
  4:16am BTCJune:

“Stream u sats” meaning pay you bitcoin directly from my phone to your phone in a streaming fashion. 100 sats a minute would be like a penny it’s soooo gooopod
Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 4:17am fred:

@Toutevoix: Where in Provence? I spent some childhood years in Sorgues, near Avignon
Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 4:19am Paulo AD:

Keri just described the DSA as tits haha. She was very active campaigning for Obama last time she was home. She cried, like literally weeping sobbing, and got drunk for two days when orange face got elected

Currently re-reading an old fave- 'Mysteries' by Knut Hamsun

Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 4:22am Paulo AD:

Never read it Rob, what's the story?
I just finished slaughterhouse 5, very disappointing
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:24am Brian D:

@Fred, from way back. Some people on the left in the US said the same when Trump won. We saw how that worked out. I've not read that @Rob. Adding it to the list!

@Paulo: You're right about the pope thing, I have many early memories of that popes' palace garden (I went back once and still remembered the place, that was weird)
Avatar 4:35am Toutevoix:

yep there you can visit the big medieval palace and in the court you can see theater and dance play, it's home of theater and arts a place for Shakespeare & friends )) a windy city with a strong trad of theater, yes the pope city but since then they returned Roma

I stayed in Avignon when hitchhiking around France.
Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 4:43am fred:

@Toutevoix: You might understand this: there's a place up there that was an imposing grotto with a river coming out when I was a small child. Not as impressive as an adult

@Toutevoix: Matthew Caws of Nada Surf spent many childhood summers on the Ventoux, that's where the name Minor Alps (his project with Juliana Hatfield) comes from. And his impressive French, I guess
Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 4:51am Paulo AD:

You would think you'd get a good curry here right..... Wrong... Wrong
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:53am Scott67:

I make a decent curry mate.

@Paulo: Maybe you just don't know the right places, the jag would stand out there
Avatar 4:56am Toutevoix:

@fred I'm just also in love with Ventoux, like those stones seems snow the whole year, I didn't know about this story that's nice, I hope to climb Ventoux tomorrow or this week before I go back Italy, for a biker this minor mountain is a myth and allways a pleasure to get back there! I ' ll listen to this Minor Alps connection we have now with curiosity & pleasure!

Climbing Ventoux on bike must be both taxing and exhilarating! Good luck
Avatar 5:08am Toutevoix:

yes fred also because there's always a lot of bikers there, so it's a lot of fun beyond amusement park kind of dimension.... and still you must really be prepared, anyway never did it during springtime, this is my therapy to get out of dark mood of those days )))
