@achewood I got mad about Robert Fripp's "music" again. I need to go to bed.

Did you enlist the help of a farm hand?

I have done that before--made my own turkey at home after Thanksgiving due to lack of leftovers.

Our Thanksgiving was pretty small this year. Did a turkey breast and just a few sides. There has since been turkey pot pie and turkey minestrone, plus the usual sandwiches and whatnot. Just about kicked at this point. I have a recipe for braised turkey legs that I am debating doing next weekend, but the rest of the family is probably turkeyed out at this point.

at least tell me he doesn't dress up as Hitler at Halloween in a costume he clearly spent a lot of time on and wishes he could wear more often

Not surprised.

Is there a revival coming on, or is this an old one that I don't recognize? It sure is dated yesterday.

Wagon Wheel is the only song that i've experienced the way people used to experience real folk songs. That is, I heard it a bunch of times played by my friends around drunken campfires, and grew to love it very much.

And then one day I heard the real version. Damn, they ruined it.
(the guys who wrote it)

HARSH, dude. I saw OCMS at Mason's arena a few years ago (they were opening for the Avett Brothers), and honestly when they did Wagon Wheel it was one of the best concert moments of my life. All 10,000 people singing along, it was beautiful.

Two amusing things from the band's winery gig yesterday.
1. "Wagon Wheel" is in our repertoire, but like a lot of musicians we are kind of sick of it and everybody plays it so why bother. We hadn't done it at the last few gigs. But yesterday during our last set, I called an audible and said "We're doing this, suck it up." And the group of young women in the back, who generally seemed to be enjoying themselves but hadn't interacted much with the music all afternoon, got up and danced. After I turned to my dudes and said "THAT is why we do that song."
2. A middle aged couple straight up made out like ten feet from us for extended periods during our show. I had to turn myself so I wasn't looking straight at them. I'm glad they found our music so romantic.

Hey AW, I need you to call Owensboro Greg from the fantasy sports leagues and tell him "WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK, Y'ALL"
(Do you live there too? Things I should know but don't.)

This times working theory: give precedence to all candidates younger than me, and of a different gender or race or creed.

I know, man. Every time I read something that's like "Women/people of color want to take over from white men!" I'm like "Good, about freakin' time." We haven't done such a great job.

Egads. I know stuff like that is a reality when dealing with animals, but I'd be washing my hands the rest of the day if that happened.

Somehow or other I have gotten drawn in to the new NBC show "Manifest," which wants to be "Lost" so badly it hurts.
Obviously I have found the overall story compelling enough to watch the first two episodes. But it's so freaking melodramatic, and I'm worried at the end it's going to be some big religious thing.
