Any interest in ear plugs? I live in an apartment in a busy urban neighborhood, though I use them mostly to block out traffic noises and my cats playing at night. I'd draw the line at the point where you can literally feel the damn music.

Great stuff! The only Ergs! I'd heard before this is a Brave Little Abacus cover of one of their songs.

BTW, have you heard Old Gray's new album yet? Thoughts?

I enjoy hiking the 46, but I'm not terribly serious about it. I don't even have a complete list of hikes I've done; I'd have to confirm details with my Dad and other people we hike with. I would like to complete it though, I just don't have the time to commit to it seriously. Hopefully I'll do it before I'm too old lol

Good luck on your trip, three peaks in five days is still a nice chunk of hiking! What hike do you plan on doing as your last?

What summits? I probably have half left? Mostly the ones that are off the usual beaten paths.

Crying - Beyond the Fleeting Gales Female fronted chiptune emo meets Van Halen? The music is great but the front woman steals the show.

They've also tinkered too much with the playoff system. I started watching back in '02, where it was just a season long accumulation of points. Then they switched to the chase format in '06, which wasn't so bad. Then a few years ago they switched it to a round elimination format? I'm not sure, it was around that switch that I stopped caring. Of course any point system is arbitrary, but switching it up every year does not help legitimize the champions in your sport.

The new (relative) mellowness is a bit jarring. Hopefully it grows on me.

The new American Football album is excellent. It's not out yet, but if you look hard enough you should be able to find a download link.

I guess the Times published this so they can plausibly dodge accusations of liberal bias? I subscribe to the Times, and the vast majority of their content is anti-Trump.

He'll always be Willy Wonka to me.
