    I had it for a while. It did fall a little short, in a lot of ways. The one thing I liked about it was the fact that it had a clean blend.

    I saw Nada Surf a couple years back and it sounded pretty damn good when he was using it. Authenic? Only Agnesi knows.

    I console myself by subtracting my age from Erksins. The math gets complicated but it helps.

    That’s a lineup! I caught Helms a couple weeks ago. They were fantastic.

    I wonder, are there actually people who find it easy to remember recurring meetings or events when they're scheduled on "the third Thursday of every month" or similar?

    I never wake up and think "Okay, today's the second Tuesday of the month...what do I have going on today?"

    The only person who finds this helpful is the person who is putting on the event. "Oh, this will be easy. We'll always do the first Monday of the month!"

    Everyone else is screwed, especially if you have 4-5 of these to keep up with.

    Out of boat news: David Torn's cousin Rip Torn passed away last night. He was brilliant on the Larry Sanders Show, MIB, and pretty much everything else he ever did.

    RIP Rip

    If you have a chance, you should read the obituary for him in the Hollywood Reporter. Yowza.

    @Crowder - forget to mention that I'm really enjoying your album. Particularly like 'Company Car' & 'Livingston Street'. Your voice has a lovely wistfulness that really suits the lyrics. Guitars sound great, really well-produced too. Nice work fella!

    I just realized Maya Hawke is Ethan Hawke and Uma Thurman's daughter.

    I binged S3. It was good, not great. They cut out the awful Mutant X rip-off subplot from S2, but there were other faults. I did prefer Dustin being separated from the group the majority of the season vs. Eleven in S2 because the actor that plays Dustin has stronger acting chops and can carry scenes better than the actress that plays Eleven. Everyone was so impressed with her in season 1 because of how intense she was, but they haven't given much to work with since then. I hope she's humanized more in S4 based on how her character is left in S3.

    One thing about 11 that bothers me is that sometimes she speaks in broken toddler sentences and sometimes not.

    I mean I understand that originally she was practically feral but it’s just strange that she goes in between it now.

    That's an issue with the show overall. Lots of good ideas followed up with poor writing. It's kind of like they have somewhere they want to get to, they pull of couple of tropes and homages out of a hat, and then try force their way to the end they have planned out.

    It's a show that if I looked at it with a true critical eye and didn't get totally steamrolled by my love of 70's/80's scifi, horror, and synthwave/vhswave music, I'd rip it constantly.

    Thanks very much! It always helps to get positive feedback.

    I don't know about you, but for me this stuff becomes *really* hard to listen to after it's been released. I'm really glad people are digging it.
