I was curious why this was released on a Friday.

I started watching her youtube clips a couple weeks ago and soon realized the same thing. TDS would have hit the ground running and still be relevant with her but maybe she wouldn't have the same writers and would have been pressured to make it a certain way..it was probably for the best.

Wow, I'm always way too late for these. What a great way to get caught up on everyone's preoccupations!

Hate to say it, but I'm afraid you might be right. However, it's that same kind of thinking that made me look at trump as some sort of cute side show at first. Now I'm not so sure. It does feel like some sort of change is in the air.

Only my love for Hubski.

Funny I just heard of The two jakes the other day. Looks like the worst parts of 90's hollywood rolled into a movie..plus Jack Nich having a midlife crisis and trying to prove he's still got it. I don't know if I even want to risk tainting the first one, although apparently siskel and ebert both loved it.

Chinatown !! (ignore the poster on imdb, I haven't seen it before and it throws me off) I only came to it a few years ago. But the atmosphere and the beauty of every scene. And Jack Nicholson just embodies it all. I may have watched the Matrix a few more times when I was young, but this movie is perfect, every scene tells a story.

"Forget it Jake. It's Chinatown."

Absolutely great flick. The Two Jakes follow up not so much IMO.

I keep listening to Someday over and over. It's an old wound. I dig some of the guitar work in Comedown, and that leslie in the first song. But there's a magic in these early songs.

Also, England's Newest Hitmakers, their first album, is probably my favorite and it's just great fuckin driving music. Spotify it or what have you.

I really appreciate albums I can sit all the way through. Sticky Fingers is one for sure!

Carol is up there. This recording is so great.

I could list a bunch but I'll just show my favorite live video. And one I think encompasses why they were so renowned for their live show (from the peak of their touring era):

jumping jack flash, Texas 1971

kinda ignore mick's vocals, just listen to the keith and charlie groove. and mick taylor' solo is unreal.
