oh sure. i could see it if the margin of victory was a hundred votes, or maybe even a thousand. but seriously, 20,000 votes difference?

Hello KP!
Avatar 12:17pm glenn:

do you know the fathoms? great surf band from boston, which makes me wonder - is there any actual surfing in beantown? maybe somebody surfed down the bigass sugary wave during the boston molasses flood.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:19pm Meghan:

Never heard of the Fathoms..... new band? I did know some guys who surfed.... I think they would go up to New Hampshire though.
  12:22pm Jefff:

North shore surfing
Avatar 12:22pm Dave B:

Any plans for NYD? (food explorations, day drinkin?)
Avatar 12:23pm glenn:

not so new, at least i don't think so, but i can't seem to find definitive beginning date for them.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:25pm Meghan:

Well, since I left the Boston area around 1999, if they were formed around then that would make sense why I might not know them....
Avatar 12:26pm glenn:

jerry miller, who is eilen jewell's guitarist, also plays with the fathoms on a semi regular basis
Avatar 12:27pm northguineahills:

I've only been to Boston once, in 2002. The bars kicked us out earlier then in FL, and the best music we could find was C&C Music Factory. My friends that lived there at the time moved to Brooklyn shortly after.
Avatar 12:28pm Dave B:

Whats up Jon too!
Avatar 12:30pm northguineahills:

moar musick!
  12:30pm Jefff:

I have to be in LES by 3:00, so maybe lunch in NYC.
Avatar 12:34pm Dave B:

3P on 01/01/2018? Lets do something! Chinatown? Ramen?
Avatar 12:39pm northguineahills:

(and by that I mean if you want to go past 2 or 3 [for that matter], I'm pretty sure our senpai, doug won't mind)
  12:40pm Jefff:

Yes, sounds good.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:40pm Meghan:

hehehe.... Oh I know Doug will be fine with it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:47pm Carmichael:

How's the surfing in New England? I surfed daily as a kid out here on the Coast. I picture East Coast Surfing as colder ...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:48pm Meghan:

Yeah, they all had full body wet suits..... even swimming in the summer was freaking cold!
Avatar 12:54pm Dave B:

wicked hot....
Avatar 12:54pm northguineahills:

I've gone swimming at the beach in Rhode Island a few times, and it was definitely colder then NYC, but still mild enough to swim w/ just swim trunks.
  12:56pm Jefff:

Who has no arms and no legs and floats in the ocean?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:57pm Meghan:

RI is much warmer. I'd go swimming up in New Hampshire and Maine. You just wait for body parts to get numb before you go further in...

Any Boston hardcore?

Yay, the Under Frozen Water Theme Park show is on!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:30pm Meghan:

Oh yes...... very frozen!
Avatar 1:30pm Dave B:

It's an Ice Flume KfHP
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:34pm Doug Schulkind:

Yep, back on my feet. But this flu packs a wallop.
Avatar 1:38pm Dave B:

@Doug - that's what I had. Lost 10lbs over the weekend as a result.
Avatar 1:40pm glenn:

i had food poisoning and the flu at the same time, many years ago. that was worth 27 lbs.
Avatar 1:40pm Jeff Moore:

Pronouncing aunts "ahnts" always seemed fake-fancy to me. The correct US-English pronunciation is like the small busy six-legged creature.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:41pm Doug Schulkind:

This year's flu shot is, apparently, lousy
Avatar 1:41pm glenn:

i'm not an anti vaxxer, but the flu shot is useless.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:42pm Meghan:

Not in New England Jeff..... My brother mostly grew up in Pennsylvania, so that is where we differ....
Avatar 1:42pm coelacanth∅:

"white elephant" is that what that's called? heard of and played that for the first time a few days ago. there were only 3 gifts worth having: chocolate, hot sauce and a kalimba. i have enough chocolate and i gave the kalimba, so i stole the hot sauce; but my nephew has a wife and 3 kids so i gave it back to him. i took home nothing. fine with that.
Avatar 1:43pm glenn:

huh. couldn't have been very good hot sauce.
Avatar 1:44pm Jeff Moore:

A lot of New Englanders seem to think they're still Englanders.
Avatar 1:44pm coelacanth∅:

"ugly" sauce. i hear it's very good.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:45pm Meghan:

Coel- We called it Yankee Swap..... only recently have I heard locals around here call it a White Elephant.....
Avatar 1:45pm northguineahills:

The one Lemonheads album I don't have.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:46pm Meghan:

This album is a compilation. It's a mix of a lot of the people who recorded at Fort Apache Studios
Avatar 1:47pm glenn:

you knew mission of burma was gonna show up.
Avatar 1:47pm coelacanth∅:

why "yankee swap"?
Avatar 1:48pm coelacanth∅:

-mission of burma welcome here-
Avatar 1:48pm glenn:

yankees are known for their "thrift", aka cheapness.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:48pm Meghan:

Not a clue.... but you could ask the same about white elephant......
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:49pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Ironically, the ice cream maker I ordered is scheduled to be delivered today. I could just pour cream & sugar into a bowl and put it out on the porch for an hour instead.
Avatar 1:49pm coelacanth∅:

a white elephant is a gift that the receiver would rather not have; like a dog to someone who can't afford to feed one.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:50pm Ike:

Holy cow, I haven't heard any Think Tree on the radio probably since the 90s.
Avatar 1:50pm Dave B:

From the King of Siam gave animals as a gift to courtiers considered obnoxious, in order to ruin the recipient by the great expense incurred in maintaining the animal.
Avatar 1:51pm coelacanth∅:

(so, calling that game that is -at least from my perspective, a humorous overstatement.)
Avatar 1:52pm coelacanth∅:

(-not too humorous!)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:52pm Carmichael:

I was visiting my sister in Memphis, and some local yokel called me a "Yankee". Huh? I was born in Ireland and raised in California for the last 50 years. I thought that term was Civil War era. Maybe I should have called him a "Reb".
Avatar 1:52pm Dave B:

yankee swap has origins in the civil war era...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:53pm Meghan:

I gave a squatty potty as a Yankee swap item. It made me giggle
Avatar 1:53pm coelacanth∅:

the stereo receiver i bought was due to come today too; but it came a week early and was stolen off the front porch.
Avatar 1:54pm glenn:

you mean a thunder mug.
Avatar 1:55pm coelacanth∅:

a "squatty potty"!
Avatar 1:56pm northguineahills:

ouch coel!

I'm going home for lunch, hopefully you'll still be playing when I get there.
Avatar 1:56pm Dave B:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:56pm Meghan:

I think we aren't fully going over..... someone is backing out..... hahaha
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:59pm Ike:

@c∅: May that thief be afflicted with abdominal migration, sleep-waltzing, tennis scrotum, and subcutaneous Funyuns!
Avatar 1:59pm coelacanth∅:

i was told it had to be under 20 bucks and preferably something silly. i like the fun of it, but i felt better getting something that wouldn't be in the garbage in a week. as it happened my sister's husband took the kalimba (which was a little more than $20.) so it may as well be in the garbage. i don't know why he took it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:00pm Carmichael:

Re-gifting ...
Avatar 2:00pm coelacanth∅:

Ike, Yikes! but YES all of those! it's probably the other first floor tenant.
Avatar 2:02pm glenn:

regifting is why i give and receive gift cards. get your own damn present.
Avatar 2:02pm coelacanth∅:

you can't leave until you've played some Jerry's kids!
Avatar 2:04pm glenn:

although my cats very nicely got us a couple lee hazlewood c.d.s. i don't know how they did it, but i'm still grateful.
  2:06pm queems:

yay cars
Avatar 2:06pm coelacanth∅:

aw, nice cats. maybe you should get them a couple pet hamsters.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:07pm Meghan:

hahahah... I always thought cats were vindictive.... how nice of them!
Avatar 2:08pm coelacanth∅:

Thanks Meghan and Jeff!
Avatar 2:08pm glenn:

vindictive would have been nickelback or bieber. or even worse, drake *shudders*.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:08pm Ken From Hyde Park:

The cat in the funny papers always wants lasagna as a gift.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:09pm Meghan:

Avatar 2:10pm coelacanth∅:

getting a drake album from someone you live with qualifies as a white elephant.
