Listening to the Led Zeppelin Companion discs from Zep 1 to Coda in order ..creating a virtual Zep box set in one go ...
iii points festival only offered a 5-day refund window (wtf?) for their tix and i didn't learn this until now, so i can't get back my $100 tix through their system. literally the most infuriating instance of poor damage control i have had to deal with during this pandemic

no offense, but i really hope this festival goes bankrupt after the inevitable disaster it will have this fall bc of how inconsiderate they've been in communicating to the public for the past half decade.

I don't think a 5 day window is even legal.

@Mather exactly!!! and the worst part is that it was never even disclosured!! i can't find it on their website!! i only know of it because of a random response from their instagram handle (again, WTF!?!?). idk, im probably gonna message a bunch of people in miami and see if we band together and file for a suit or something

Can't say I ever really paid attention to John Prine... probably too "country" for my tastes up until recently. Queued up his first album on Spotify just now, and the first lines of "Illegal Smile" are immediately relevant to how life feels right now. Wow.
I hate graveyards and pawn shops, they always bring me to tears. can't forgive the way they rob me of my childhood souvenirs.

grateful I had the chance last year to tell him thank you for all the words, all the songs. his impact can't be overstated.

That's one of my favorites of his, and one that has been getting a lot of plays since we heard he had been hit with the virus. I hate that he's gone, but I love that there seems to be universal love & respect out there for him.

I really don't know much about Prine but still feel the sadness of losing such an incredible man who has helped so many heal through music. If you're like me, and don't know much about him, I stumbled upon the first review ever written about him, which happened to be by Roger Ebert in 1970: John Prine: American Legend | Features | Roger Ebert

Yeah, that story is sort of the legend. Ebert walked out of a movie he was reviewing because it was awful and ended up seeing Prine play instead. Since he had a review due, he reviewed that show instead. Prine has some amazing work. If you’re new to him, you really are in for a treat.

I dropped Prine’s interview on Fresh Air in the thread. If I remember correctly, he talks about that story
guys, GUYS! I'm going crazy here. I have these lyrics in my head:

I'm waiting down the stairs
Are you going up or down?
(And here was a female voice saying "nanimo mienai)

But I can't seem to find nothing in Google... Can't remember band or song name either...
John Prine was the first concert I ever went to with my (now) fiancé. We tried to see him in concert after that any time he came to NY. And Prime Prine was the first record I ever bought her as a result of her introducing him to me properly. RIP John and thanks for the happy memories.
