That's pretty creepy, gotta say.

Comment 29 Oct 2015

Wow!! Just listened to the isolated guitar and vocals from Layla.  Fascinating.  Incredible playing.

Upvote for TTB.  Have seen them a few times, last with Doyle Bramhall and Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings.  Fabulous.  There was a video available of their whole Mad Dogs and Englishmen tribute set at Lockn' but it's appears to no longer be viewable.  Derek's a master at so many styles, Susan's voice is amazing, plus the huge, fantastic band and their wide ranging selections of songs.  They're just so good.

Great thread!  Going to spend some quality time with all these videos.  Never got to see ABB in the early years, but did get to see them during the Derek Trucks/Warren Haynes incarnation (with Steve Winwood also on the bill).  Great show.  Just amazing how Derek Trucks has been able to continue Duane's legacy while forging ahead and in his own way melding musical styles as did the ABB .  As was Duane, Derek Trucks, to me, is the best guitarist alive - excluding Eric Clapton.

I don't think the canon guys were really mad, it had to be pretty depressing to watch that as a Rutgers fan.   Right at the end of the clip you can see the guy gesture to the fans.  I was about 8 rows back and couldn't see what he did, but there was definitely a reaction to it from the Buckeyes fans.  Later on when Rutgers did score, the ABC showed Brutus reacting to the canon also, but what the camera did not show was the entire cheerleading squad flinging themselves to the ground like they had been shot dead.  So funny.

There were Buckeye fans everywhere Saturday.  Every bar we went to Buckeye fans were by far the majority of the group.  One place you could barely get a beer because they did not anticipate the crowds - waitresses literally running around.  The "Shoot the canon" chant was classic.  We were right down in that corner, those guys were not happy with us and Brutus and the cheerleaders all having fun with them.  Almost got the four-sided O-H-I-O chant going, the Rutgers student section in the other end zone didn't want to cooperate for some reason.

I watched the replay yesterday and Fowler said the Rutgers crowd was booing the defense on  Elliott's long run.  That was not the Rutgers crowd, there weren't enough of them left by that point to make any noise, that was the OSU fans with the Zeeeeeeeke chant.

Fun game to go to, would have been more fun if the Rutgers fans had showed some sings of life.  The most excited fans I saw were four guys with no shirts running into the stadium who said to me on the way by, "We're going to beat the spread!".  Pretty funny.

I'm in New Hampshire, so... check the best craft beer store near you.  Crooked Stave is based in Denver.  Pretty small outfit I believe.  This is part of their artisan beer project.  If you are interested in sours in general, The Bruery makes a number of them that are very good (though pricey).  Alvinne Undressed, an oud bruin from Belgium is my favorite sour.

Comment 17 Oct 2015

Currently a Crooked Stave Progenitor (Dry hopped wild sour ale).  May go with Allagash Odyssey (Belgian strong dark ale) for the game.

A man's being arrested by a female police officer, who informs him, "Anything you say can be used may be held against you." The man replies, "Boobs!

What's up with Dr. Lou in the neck brace?  Was he in a motorcycle accident while riding with a woman who was not his wife?

Comment 30 Sep 2015

I was in the exact same position as you - 20+ years in and boom.  It ended up being the best thing that ever happened to me.  Got out of a rut, went back to school and got another degree, was able to advance myself, within 4 years or so I was making about 70% more than I was when my position was eliminated (never did get the sweet vacation/earned time package back though - I was at 8 weeks).  There was a lot of luck involved, definitely some low times (I was underemployed for about two years), my wife was awesome about it.  Keep your head up, it is not personal, not a reflection of your capabilities in any way.  Just try to keep a positive attitude, keep plugging, take what comes your way.  No other advice to give, but I took the severance package rather than the alternate job assignment because i was pissed and did not want to work for that company anymore.  It might have been a better decision to stick around and make some money while I looked for something else (though I probably would not have been able to get that additional degree), so just try not to make decisions based on emotion.  Good luck man, I definitely feel your pain.

Steeler's scored the last touchdown with 2 seconds left.  Patriots controlled the game throughout, really.

Comment 25 Sep 2015

If you see Founders Backwoods Bastard absolutely buy it.  It is a seasonal, but about to come out I think.  Bourbon barrel aged scotch ale.  Great, great beer (I have both Founders Breakfast stout and Founders KBS in the fridge right now, BB rivals them, at least).

Always been an android user. Got an iPad to see what life was like on the other side. I found out it is very pretty, but values form over function. Won't be shopping at Apple anymore.
