Re: Circle of Titles - The Return

My original plan was to get this done pre-move but that didn’t happen so I’m in a sea of things to unpack and a big project to ship for work but I’m determined to carve out some time this weekend. (I’ve carved out several times already but they have only resulted in noodling.) I do know where my aco...

Re: My Life

Well, Owl, I'm glad that as concerning as diabetes is, it's not something worse and should be controllable. Good luck with all that it involves. In my corner, I've just found out that I have high cholesterol and am at a supposed 10% chance of having a heart attack or stroke within the next ten year...

Re: My Life

Oh jeeze, I missed this on the first read of your post. I know just how frustrating chronic illness can be, and I hope yours is one that isn't too troublesome. You have my sympathies, regardless. Thanks, fluffy and paco—type 2 diabetes, and wasn’t horribly out of control when they caught it. So it’...

Re: My Life

Yep, the starlings were very definitely alive. Luckily for them we don’t use that heater, so keep shelves in front of it and Tadhg couldn’t get to them. When we realised what was going on we put him outside and moved everything so they could get out, and they flew to the front window and out that w...

Re: My Life

I also got diagnosed with a chronic illness recently, and that’s taken some time to get used to—it’s been a stressful time. Oh jeeze, I missed this on the first read of your post. I know just how frustrating chronic illness can be, and I hope yours is one that isn't too troublesome. You have my sym...

Re: My Life

@fluffy We stuck steel wool in some gaps in the kitchen wall and it seems to have stopped mice from coming in—at least, it’s greatly reduced the level of obsession our cat has had with the area behind the stove, so I think it helped. @crumpart were the starlings alive? I’m super exhausted from work ...

Re: Circle of Titles - The Return

I’m running late, sorry—today wasn’t as productive as I needed it to be. We’re moving next week and I didn’t really realize how disruptive it would be to not have easy access to couch, guitar, or laptop. Along with trying to shove everything into not quite enough boxes.

Re: Cooking

Dinner tonight: Trader Joe’s cauliflower gnocchi pan-fried with garlic and ghee, tossed with roasted Brussels sprouts and chopped toasted hazelnuts, red pepper flakes, and a splash of red wine vinegar.

Re: Cooking

I made a fresh corn, cherry tomato, zucchini, scallion, and fresh basil scramble for breakfast. Tastes like summer, I always forget how great fresh corn tastes during the months when I’m eating frozen or canned.

Finally got around to listening to this episode, that was fun, thanks for sharing your hot takes as always, both of you! If you have any suggestions for how exactly to fix the guitars that sound underwater or pointy depending on which headphones you're on, I'll gladly take them. As I mentioned, I di...

Re: Nur Ein XV Final Round "Pistols At Dawn"

Congratulations, Jon Eric! I’m insanely busy right now, so I probably won’t get around to doing shadow reviews this round. Here are quick reviews for the two finalists: Cavedwellers : This is musically delightful. Very nice arrangement, I particularly liked the intro with the strings. Kind of a Bell...

Re: Song Fight Live Online 2020

I’ll participate. I kind of like Jack’s prerecorded set idea because it gives us more control over the final result and sound, and allows folks in other time zones to participate. Streaming with two computers sounds like a nightmare to set up, but I’d be happy to try streaming on just one computer o...
