Yes, it's that time again

THT has alerted me to the fact you all are approaching 5,000 posts, which means it's time for a new thread. It would be my pleasure to create said new thread. Before I leave, however, I'd like to provide you a picture of the always-lovely Mariska Hargitay.

This page smells more like a 200 year old house than a new page.

We'll do with it what we can, but it's been here a while.

THT, you've gotten yourself into an "adventure." I owned a 100 year old house and it was interesting. There were some really cool things about it, but also a lot of things you had to be okay with. Even when you decided to fix or redo a part of it... there's always a something behind the something that you couldn't foresee. Good luck, and give Mrs. THT my condolences!

you are absolutely right about the "something behind the something that you couldn't foresee". For example, I didn't foresee that I'd never get to retire now. The latest discovery is a yellow jacket nest in the ground in the back yard.

I had an old house the first five years in huntsville. Of course the thing was covered in lead paint. My wife decided all of it had to be removed off the trim in the kids' bedroom, which was a total mess. Just leave all the lead paint alone and done eat hte paint chips and you'll be fine, THT.

2804 - Lead impregnated asbestos clothing is all the rage.

Replace the word "done" with the word "don't" in that last post. I want to be clear on this: you should not eat lead paint, THT.

No need for the correction, MJT. I'm sure he's still trying to figure which chips are "hte" ones he's supposed to eat.

I'm convinced exterior paints are worthless without lead. They just don't last at all. As a toddler I stood in my crib next to the window and gnawed the paint off the window frame. Obviously there were no deleterious effects. I'm perfectly normal.

So, you don't like Astral Weeks really at all, MJT, or just think it's overrated?

I think it's slightly overrated myself in that it wasn't some transcendent listening experience that it was cracked up to be, but still really like it nonetheless and may also prefer it to Moondance.

But, hey man, each his own. That's cool.

2817 - Could you find me?

10:10 AM  
Blogger michael said...

I bought Astral Weeks when I was on a kick of buying "Best of Genre" type albums as deemed so by AllMusic. Most of those albums lived up to their billing, but Astral Weeks didn't for me. Was just a solid album. It was a little too sleepy and repetitive for me (and as a guy who absolutely adores Nick Drake, this is saying something for me). Some of the songs sound too similar to each other for me. The title track is great though.

So no, I don't necessarily dislike the album. I just don't ever feel like listening through the whole thing, which is a must for me to consider it a transcendent album. If one of the songs comes up during shuffle, I'll enjoy it though.

I got it at the same time I got Moondance, and Moondance just works so much better as an album for me. It has a couple of tracks with an Astral Weeks vibe, but it flows so much better because of the dynamics of the album.

2818 - and it stoned me to my soul

2:30 PM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

That's cool. If I'm listening to the songs on shuffle, it does take me a second to realize if I'm listening to "Madame George" or "Cyprus Avenue", but then I decide I like them so much that I don't care.

That said, it's funny that if I am listening to the iPod on shuffle and the songs come on separately, I find they don't appeal to me as much, or that I'd rather be listening to the whole album and not just a song here and there.

Have never really warmed to "The Way Young Lovers Do", though, and, weirdly, it's for the opposite reason that you don't love the album. It feels too distinct and thus out of place to the rest of the album, at least musically.

2819 - Everyone wonders, "But what about Tupelo Honey?"

I guess the intent of my post survived, even if the text did not.
I forgot the silly "<" and ">" are html tags, so y'all did not see my

I have a pseudosister whose married name is Weeks; I wonder if her husband is related to Astral.

If I put the wheels in motion, I reach the conclusion that I love me some small doses of Van Morrison. There are a couple of songs on each album I like, but I think, at my age, I couldn't remain conscious through either entire album. Gotta throw some good rockin' music in there to keep me conscious.

More than 2 weeks ago, someone in hospital in Oxford, NC, opened an email and clicked on "invoice" attachment. Their entire computer system was infected and crashed. No medical records can be viewed, no dictation system available, a complete disaster. If you Google you won't find a single mention of it in any news. If you go to their local newspaper web site, you won't find it mentioned at all. There seems to be very little progress made thus far towards a cure.


2829 - Hospital in Oxford finally reopens using all paper records and no computers.

so MrsTHT met a Salem neighbor at a neighborhood gathering on Monday while I was laboring. He apparently looks much older than his age which is probably only about 2 or 3 yrs older than MrsTHT and me. MrsTHT said, "If we look that old in four years I'll just kick you right now."

She apparently is not bound by my simple concept of time.

1:36 PM  
Blogger THT said...

the stats from Saturday, at least as far as total yards, look a lot better than the reality on the field. One of the sour stats was Tulane's 4.0 yd per rush attempt compared to AU's 3.8. I'm surprised Tulane threw more times than they ran; running is their strength. Our strength seems to be winning without playing well on offense. It wasn't that many seasons ago we had a strong defense and an awful offense and towards the end of the season the defense was wore out and the wheels came off. I hope this isn't deja vu all over again.

2852 - warmest year on record; even warmer than September 2019.

I don't like TAM's team. Our D is good enough to rattle Mond. I suspect that game will be ugly, but winnable.

I don't know what FL is yet.

Lose either of those games and I think LSU breaks our back. If we roll into Baton Rouge at 7-0, there's a slight chance bizarre things happen and we win.

I'm not ready to say our offense is bad. A work in progress, sure, but not bad, which isn't terribly far outside the norm of other Malzahn offenses over the years that turned out being great.

I don't necessarily expect THIS offense to be great this year, but with the defense, being good might win us a lot of games.

Upon leaving prison, I'll be driving to Baltimore tonight for a Saturday late afternoon wedding (i.e. wedding will prevent me from watching AU) of people I don't even know. Then I'll get to visit Sunday afternoon with people in D.C. who I don't hardly know, before driving home Sunday night in time to start a Monday double shift at the Buy more.

" I suggest attending more weddings during Auburn games."

Pleeeeeeeze don't make me do that. Not only do I not care to attend weddings, funerals, or other social events, best I could tell, this wedding was a gathering of atheists. Most of them are a lot nicer people than me, so it's a shame that they are lost. There was no mention of God or any other deity at any time prior to, during, or following the wedding. The wedding music, provided by a flutist, violinist, and cellist, was from the Beatles and various other pop sources. Instead of a scripture reading during the ceremony, the groom's uncle read some 2015 Supreme Court justice's comments on marriage, followed by applause from many of the attendees. I think I was checking my Sports Alerts app at the time, so I'm not sure exactly what all he said.

2872 - Busby wins the pick'em contest. To make his picks, he put two planaria in a domed petri dish and dot each one with opposing team's colors. Two Turbellaria enter the petri dish, only one leaves. Busby does that for each of his 10 picks and gets all of them right.
