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.
Have a nice day.

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!

2802 - Plumbs become the new cash crop.

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.

2803 - A "plumb diet" weight loss fad inadvertently leads to an epidemic of lead poisoning.

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.

Blogger michael said...

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.

2805 - asbestos impregnated lead water pipes are installed everywhere

12:37 PM  
Blogger bubbs said...

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.

2806 - Surplus of pipes created when all the impregnated ones complete their gestation period.

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.

2807 - despondent over being subjected to incessant name-calling, karma undergoes a sex change operation.

PAC-12 thinking of having 9 a.m. kickoffs. That should make for some sleepy tailgating.


2808 - SEC gets the jump on PAC 12 with 6 a.m. kickoffs

Blogger E-Bro said...

Yeah, but leaves more time to enjoy all that the West Coast has to offer after the game.

2809 - PAC 12 counters with games in the astral plane where time does not exist.

Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

the astral plane? is that like one of those 737 maxes? I don't think there's enough room in the overhead compartments for punts.

2810 - AU has dominated ua-t so thoroughly and completely over the past 700 years that no one even realizes it's the 800th anniversary year of the Camback.

astral weeks is an overrated album. There, I said it.

2811 - Moondance, on the other hand, is a straight up masterpiece.

astral weeks is an overrated album. Wow, that was easy. Why did it give you so much trouble?

2812 - BEASLEY!!!... planning committee convenes

I like both Moondance and Astral Weeks quite a lot. There, I said it.

There was a really good article on Astral Weeks on The Ringer last fall. Worth a read.

2813 - Slim Slow Slider melts me again.

10:07 AM  
Blogger michael said...

Yeah I read article and then I said hey, I'll go back and listen to it again and see if I missed something when I first bought the compact disc 18 years ago, and no, not really.

2814 - venturing into the slipstream

I like both Mitch Miller and Glenn Miller quite a lot. There, I said it.

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?"

10:18 AM  
Blogger michael said...

Hey THT, after hearing both sides, who do you think is right about Astral Weeks?

2820 - brown eyed Earl

2821 - Blasphemy against Van Morrison is outlawed

9:06 AM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

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
{yawn}

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.

2822 - Moon Weeks double album goes triple platinum

Ebro is trending on twitter. Hope he's OK.

2823 - drought!

12:13 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

bubbs is just 10 posts from overtaking SteveFC for seventh place in all-time post count on AUFC. If he keeps himself as scarce there as here, he may never achieve that great historic milestone.


2824 - bubbs post drought!

7:52 AM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

correction, 910 posts from overtaking SteveFC. First I dangle a target and then I remove all hope. Sorry about that, bubbs. I need to clean my glasses.


2825 - Auburn celebrates it's third Martavious Houston Day. Historical records are not clear on the dates of the first two.

8:00 AM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

gosh, Im awful this morning. I misplaced the apostrophe in the prior post.

2826 - Diet Coke drought!

I'm ok.

2827 - Droughtiest year on record.

That's great news, E-Bro. Trending can be hazardous.

2828 looks in the rearview mirror and yells at 2827, EAT MY DUST!

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.

1:48 PM  
Blogger michael said...

Yet another reason I don't allow the majority of Eurasia to use computers.

2830 - Someone at oxford opens a letter with "invoice" written on the outside. Immediately all the paper records are destroyed.

1:51 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

Still a disaster at the hospital in Oxford. Why is it taking so long? Because they never called the Nerd Herd at the Buy More. They'd have fixed it in no time at all.

2831 - flea shortage
