No complaints on my end either.. Like Dylan, I have always appreciated storytelling involved in Young's lyrics.  This is a cool thread thanks for getting it started.  I have started making an album list to jump into this weekend - so much for working today... 

Comment 26 Aug 2016

Yeah, man.  I cycled through a few Stones albums to post up here, but I couldn't settle on one or two.  Exile on Main Street is fantastic - all of the layering introduced with this album makes it one of my favorites.. Too hard to pick just one.

I was there and it was awesome to see them pouring out..  Almost as awesome as hearing OH-IO rolling around the stadium.   

Comment 26 Aug 2016

Solid.  This Must Be The Place is one of my favorite Talking Heads song.. Welp, throwing this album on now.. Cheers!

Comment 26 Aug 2016

I have a pretty eclectic music taste, but when I thrown on an album these are always on rotation..

I immediately thought The Sandlot when reading the title, so I was pleasantly surprised reading your caption.  Its a fantastic movie and I also have similar memories from watching it growing up. Enjoy the rest of your day with the little ones. Cheers!

My dad tells me this story of when he use to deliver beer for a distributor here in Columbus and bumped into a Howard 'Hopalong' Cassidy and Vic Janowicz sitting at the bar just the two of them.  He stopped over had a quick cold one with them before hitting the road.. I always thought.. How cool..

Full disclosure he was not driving that day.  Although in the 70's he probably would have done so anyway.

To pass along a few suggestions:  The Lost City of Z.  The Devil in the White City.  The Professor and the Madman.  Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. 

I generally lean toward non-fiction, but I will always throw in The Count of Monte Cristo when talking about books.  Currently, I am reading A Song of Ice and Fire and I am really enjoying it. 

Cheers!

+ 1 for The Count of Monte Cristo.  I generally gravitate toward non-fiction, but The Count of Monte Cristo is one of my favorite books. 

Cheers!

Agreed 100%.  I also coach and we always harp on moving on every single play, whether you are directly in the play or backing up you are moving.  If Upton hadn't given up on that it could have easily turned out differently.  Love Naquin's hustle and of course his reaction after scoring.  I've watched this 30x easily since Friday.

Go Tribe!

Comment 19 Aug 2016

I am very much intrigued.  I read where the game contains 18 quintillion planets.. Geesh.   

Comment 17 Aug 2016

True.  In this case, guess its one of those good problems.  I with you on port - no thanks.   

Comment 17 Aug 2016

I understand his efforts to get players, recruits and their fans to rally around him and for the most part it seems to work. Someone mentioned in an earlier post that he's one that you love if he's on your team and despise if he's not - and I can totally see that.  However, I do feel that these child like Twitter fights and how he chooses to engage social media will get old after a while and eventually become detrimental. 

Comment 17 Aug 2016

Indeed.  However, last night in particular the Glenlivet was closer - Languorous for sure, but The Indians game was starting and quick decisions had to be made.. ha

Comment 17 Aug 2016

Ah - the classic 'parents basement' comment.  +1 for Peaches, however.
