    If there's a benefit to the pandemic it's watching scientists and public health officials realize they have to wade into the politics of it all.

    I highly doubt that the scientists and public health officials feel that way.

    Of course not. I'm sure they - like everybody else - would like to think public health measures aren't one to be handled so cavalierly as they have been. It's usually a privilege to live in a world where you think rational thought would win out.

    I heard a guy whining about NY's "new political songs" after a 2010 show (the Le Noise tour). I was cracking up.

    Finally signed up for NYA last night - not sure where to start. Is that a downloading service I guess? Or more streaming. Yeah, I know pretty weak for the OP here.

    This Spotify thing is draining. Everywhere I look people are bitching about it.

    This post from Neil is just as important, but seems to have been lost in the noise of the last week:

    Yeah as much as I’d love to see Neil live again, this is one I can easily get behind. It’s been a good week for taking a stand for things you believe in!

    Yeah, it definitely has!  
    And yet, wouldn't it be great to have a little time to not feel the need to take a stand on things?  Just a little time where everything was good and nothing really serious was going on?  Sometimes it's just so hard to live in a world of trouble.  If everybody could just feel like taking a break and cooling it, even if just for a few days!

    Why not use biogas?

    •    In a collaboration between Scania, mobility provider Flixbus and gas supplier Gasum, the first long distance coach running on biogas will operate the Stockholm-Oslo

    •    Powered by liquid biogas (LBG), the coach will reduce climate impact and contribute to a fossil-free transport between the two Nordic capitals.

    Original Bootleg Series. The Carnegie Hall release from a few months back is the first of the series.

    For further context, there are old bootlegs that Neil swiped the art or sometimes the recordings of (most are replaced with his own tapes) and reissued proper.

    These were supposed to be out late last summer, but got pushed because of pressing plant backlogs, and then eventually got split up because of delays. These are the rest of wave 1 (maybe, only looks like #3,4 and 5).

    Archives III is apparently almost finished as well.

    The list goes on…

    Not optimistic on any of those other than OBS 3,4,5. Which I feel like should have been announced by now.

    I sat down to immerse myself fully in an album this evening as I usually do.  I wasn't sure what to play today, it seems like a very heavy day, a heavy weight hanging over the world.  I decided to listen to Le Noise.  It was the perfect record for the day.  Beautiful, devastating, and real.  Parts of it left me in tears and thinking, thinking about everything going down, the feelings reflected in the songs.  It was the right record for this day, for sure.

    You're 100% right Brian, sometimes Le Noise is the perfect album for those kind of days.

    Did you hear 'You Never Call'? It was written for Le Noise, but never made it onto the record (because... Neil).
    It's a beautifully haunting song Neil wrote for LA Johnson after he passed away
