I found this video on YouTube. NYC subways back in 1986. I don't miss those days
Best song from last night's concert.
ETA: best $25 Groupon ever.
One of my Favs, from back in the day
It is pronounced "skowtch" with an "O" not an "A", with the emphasis on the "OW" part of the word. I can haz it tonight as well.
Obviously, you did not go to the right places.
I saw him in concert
India is definitely in the loop. I thought it was BLR but I'm not positive. It also remains to be seen when they are going to actually take delivery of the remaining ships. I've heard rumblings that assembly isn't going as smoothly as Boeing has been claiming.
Wish I have had the opportunity. I missed it. Thought he was great, back then, and died much to soon.
one of his greatest, tells the story about 'Road Warriors', those of us who make (made) our living on the road, away from home Here it is:
Writing code whist mildly buzzed in a semi-new to me language is proving to be quite entertaining.
I saw Jim Croce too and really thought it might not be a good idea for me to go to concerts
Wish I had seen his concerts too. Aside from the D problem, One great singer.
The apocalypse cometh upon DC right now. Wow what a storm...
Yes, YouTube allows up to 15 minutes, while Smug allows 20. There seemed to be other aspects of Smug that made it worth the price differential v Flickr to me, but I'm not an expert on all this.
Indeed, lotsa lightning in Silver Spring, too.
So, this just sums up today....
We had a storm pass over about 4 am this morning that had such bright lightening with my blinds and curtains drawn and my eyes closed it seemed like daylight was in my room. Thunder and lightening were at the exact same time for a couple of the strikes.
No kidding. I've not seen wind like this in years.
Lightning is nothing. Wait until the wind hits you – if it hasn't already. I've seen people being blown over on the sidewalk on Massachusetts Ave. as they desperately tried to run for whatever shelter they could find.
This is seriously bad, and it hit with very little warning. We weren't supposed to see this mess for another couple of hours, too.
Along the same lines, one of the greatest quotes regarding working + drinking that I have ever seen is from the incomparable Christopher Hitchens, from his memoir Hitch-22:
"There was a time when I could reckon to outperform all but the most hardened imbibers, but I now drink relatively carefully."
He described his current drinking routine on working-days as follows: "At about half past midday, a decent slug of Mister Walker's Amber Restorative, cut with Perrier water (an ideal delivery system) and no ice. At luncheon, perhaps half a bottle of red wine: not always more but never less. Then back to the desk, and ready to repeat the treatment at the evening meal. No 'after dinner drinks' — most especially nothing sweet and never, ever any brandy. 'Nightcaps' depend on how well the day went, but always the mixture as before. No mixing: no messing around with a gin here and a vodka there."
A brilliant quote by a brilliant man. I try and hold myself to the same standard.
Night Box. Early morning flight is disturbing...
I accept the judgment of Teh Box that scenting my shirts using the cologne tester was a ratchet act.
Butt why, in the store and the first place, If we can ask??
then this will be even worser
Ahhh, those were the days! I remember as a teenager living on Long Island in the early 80s, and taking the LIRR into the city, and riding around on the subways. I loved how skanky Times Square was back then. Now it's like Disney NYC.
