Re: A Long Hot Summer begins (a dumpster fire chat)

I'm living the "news" right here in central St. Paul, guy. And aside from seeing it firsthand (I don't drive so walk everywhere), I'm getting from regular broadcast TV stations here: WCCO, KSTP or Kare11 (not channel 9, which is Fox). And of course PBS (ch. 2), MPR, NPR, and of course CNN since the...

Re: A Long Hot Summer begins (a dumpster fire chat)

Beanie - do you know anyone in the US Military - Guard, Reserves or active duty? Or even veterans? I know quite a few. I'm related to a couple. To a man/woman, they all despise Trump, and mostly (from what I've gleaned) are liberals/Democrats or left-leaning libertarians. I do. Some were friends an...

Re: A Long Hot Summer begins (a dumpster fire chat)

Ya know, man - with your sweeping statement "The US Military might shoot it's own people in the streets tonight" (with no context or links or any other commentary), sounds like one of Trumps tweets. Cause fear with no back story. Dude, are you getting off on this shit? ??????? Like half an hour ago...

Re: A Long Hot Summer begins (a dumpster fire chat)

And anyway, here in the Twin Cities the Guard presence is being reduced and the curfew reduced by two hours dusk and dawn. Hope Gov. Walz and the mayors are playing their cards right, cuz it's fucking almost 90 degrees and supposed to be hotter tomorrow.

Re: A Long Hot Summer begins (a dumpster fire chat)

The US Military might shoot its own people in the streets tonight. Probably not unless fired on. These aren't cops, though many have no doubt been on deployment to Iraq or Afghanistan. Which, ya know, can color one's view of the situation at hand. Big time advice for peaceful demonstrators and prot...

Re: Mick's voice on Lost in a supermarket

I mean, I imagine Mick certainly had abandonment issues too - as great as his nan and aunts were, they weren't his parents. Maybe it's about the both of them? Yeah, there is that. I just think Joe's childhood ticks more boxes than Mick's for the song in general. It isn’t autobiographical so no reas...

As our good friend JohnS said earlier here is Johnny Thunders with the same Gretsch.
Yep. Johnny was using that Gretch since the earliest days of the Heartbreakers with Richard Hell. I think he got it from Syl Sylvain (who also gave Steve Jones his white Les Paul Custom via Malcolm).

Re: A Long Hot Summer begins (a dumpster fire chat)

Minnesota Attorney General Kieth Ellison will take over the criminal investigation. Damn good call from Gov. Walz. I would expect Chauvin to be up-charged and the other three cops to be formally charged with something.

Re: A Long Hot Summer begins (a dumpster fire chat)

Big bang and flash about an hour ago; same thing - volume, proximity, flash - last night. A squad drove by and shined their light on two young white guys hanging on the corner (well after curfew), and drove on. I watched with binocs for a bit after, brother and I decided it was just dumb kids with a...

Re: What should be the American national anthem?

All wrong. Dylan's "Everything Is Broken"; as an alternate, Young Neil & Crazy Horse's "Piece of Crap". (I actually thought of this exact thread years ago).
