Feels like they were just trying to get a high score in Scrabble with that name.

Sounds interesting.  Then the website had to go and say "that's a dope track".  I feel like it's not for me.  But if more people are interested, I could get interested.

Saturday June 10, 2017:  Air Traffic Controller.

Tickets are $10-$12, a refreshing change from this venue's "you'll need to take out a second mortgage to see a gig here" pricing.  I don't know this act's music (the LALG website calls them "indie pop") but I'll check it out and maybe go if they're good enough.

Potentially. I'm supposed to get a "new" PC at work next week -- the current one can barely run three programs at a time. After that I could give it a shot.

The Trump administration is a circus, the which we have never seen before.

I honestly don't see how Trump will survive his full 4 year term.

Repeating what John Oliver said on Sunday night - Trump's strongest quality is surviving. There are dozens of events that have happened over the last year where everyone said, "this has to be the end for him." And yet he continues. And will continue.

Maybe. Maybe not. Being POTUS isn't the same as being a self-employed real estate shark/speculator.  You can't just not study up on anything, demand everything be your way and not run afoul of laws.  Yes, his party's majorities in both houses of Congress may protect him indefinitely.  I'm hoping they don't.

I know it's been several years now since a bunch of us gathered together on turntable.fm to spin tunes and annoy Buzzstein. There is a new site/Spotify app kind of deal, that is quite similar to turntable, only it's missing a WOXY room. This is the URL www.jqbx.fm. Maybe we've all outgrown this kind of interaction or don't have the kind of time we had 6 or so years ago, but if anyone is interested in getting together and starting up a WOXY room, I'd be down.

Kedi: adorable documentary about street cats in Istanbul. I heard it was really really good so we watched it, with my curiosity piqued about what makes this different than a standard cat documentary. Turns out that yes, it was really good because of the gorgeous cinematography, the setting, the music, and the presentation. The actual subject though...was just a standard cat documentary. I wanted more stories or longer stories or something more ... interesting?

Still...if you love cats (MK! CR! et al.) then you'll enjoy this. It's available on YouTube Red at the moment, and they are offering the first month free, so you can get it for free if you work the system a little.

The Accountant: could have been cool. Tried to do too much and tried to throw too many story lines at you all at once. Instead it was too convoluted. I liked that they tried to explain autism and make it seem like this could be advantageous but the reality is that what they were really trying to make was Batman-lite. Very confusing, very strange. Too many plot points didn't make sense for me to recommend it to anyone.

I thought she was a bit odd, but then I saw Jessica Jones and changed my tune. She's great.

I thought that Tyler was probably a worthless guy who did indeed steal a bunch of John's stuff. I mean that solely from the information presented and have no clue as to what actually happened.

At first it was amusing but as it got bigger and bigger it was like, "Hold on a second."
