    2024 July Challenge Thread - Welcome to Japan! (日本へようこそ!)

    Day 15 - Play a record with intentional comedic elements/lyrics. I don't know why I bought this. It's actually the first spin ever. Also, my wife initially asked if this was Pearl Jam. Edit: This is headed for the PIF thread if anyone is interested.

    I just had a lengthy chat with a coworker that I really like. Over several years of working together we have talked openly and easily about many topics, from gardening to movies to politics. Today he told me he flipped to Trump. He said the shooting is part of it. I mentioned Project 2025 and...

    Decided to do a re-watch of House of the Dragon before diving into season 2. I had forgotten how good the first episode was.

    2024 Reading Challenge

    Book 14 - Disgrace by JM Coetzee Phew. Short, difficult, intense read. I was my first Coetzee and I loved it, despite some of the difficult subject matter.

    Luckily I don't really want the outtakes and demos. I rarely listen to that stuff on any LP I get. So 30 bucks for just the album isn't too bad I suppose.

    You nailed it. It's exactly why fact-checking Trump does no good. His latest rallies with him riffing on airports and electric boats doesn't seem to dissuade his voters either. Even if the Dems had a whip-smart bulldog for a debate session against him, no 'loss' would stick. I have been feeling...

    This is an excerpt that I found interesting from the NYT morning newsletter.... The scandal is almost as old as the United States itself: The president has a health problem that he and his aides try to shroud from the public. Only later — years later, in some cases — does the severity become...

    Nope. But many of the people in my circle are less than thrilled to have to vote for 'anyone but Trump' but that's where we are.

    Yeah, this is pretty much on the nose. They deal in the abstract - because I agree that the guy has probably never actually seen any of those things in person, up in his happy little lake house. (neither have my MAGA co-workers) So maddening, but I certainly can't change anything about that way...
