    US Politics: Red, Red Whine

    'Let me put an end to this...' If you want to call that into question, you'll have to ask who paid the lawyers, looking at the pictures (product placement) I'd say Coca Cola, but what does it matter? If it's not legitimate too seek financial aid from interested parties to help you presenting your case of being wronged by a person seeking a public office for life, that will have serious implications on people seeking justice in similar cases in the future, I think the US political system has been operating illegitimately for centuries.

    Excellent folow up title. Prince Buster (1967) to Tony Tribe (1969).

    Player of the tournament so far

    Are you thinking of Laxalt and Sabaly? That would be because they aren't really LB's, but I agree that they - especialy Laxalt - did outstanding jobs at this WC.

    Westeros World Cup - Fantasy League

    I think I'll be fourth - @Corvinus of Teranga @Whiskeyjaak Blood-Drinker @Dolorous Gabe
  7. Congrats to Croatia for making this a competitive match, who knows what would have been had Griezman been shown a yellow card for diving instead of being awarded a free kick that lead to the Mandzukic owngoal. On the other hand Griezman seemed to me to be determined to win this thing ever since they won against Uruguay, so that he didn't knock out his friends and Atleti-Captain Godin's team for nothing. They wanted to win this for Oscar Tabarez. This really has my sympathy.
  8. What a weird game! I wanted to congratulate Corvinus on winning the Fantasy League in the name of the Anabolics Anonymous, but it seems too be early to call just yet. As for France - we got here in the most nonchalant way possible and do not need titles or trophies to know we are the best. (We'll take them though )

    2018 World Cup - Get a Team to Support Here!!!!

    I'm sorry, but what is puny Persia compared to La Grande Nation and the chance for me to impersonate Le Roi? I can give you some hints regarding Iran though, Greatest poet to quote - Nizami Most important player and team captain - Ashkan Dejagah Greatest win, the "mother of all matches" - Iran vs. Usa WC France 1998 Oh, and everyone who doesn't believe in your superiority are infidels, of course. @Pierre Le Harceleur who represented Iran in 2014 as well, set the tone as french smooth talker, I'll continue with some Cantona Crooning.

    2018 World Cup - Get a Team to Support Here!!!!

    I need a team. I've been Iran in 2014, but I don't really mind supporting them again. Just don't give me Germany, not because they were woeful in their past three matches, I am german and not actually from fennario.
  11. This is not good - strength and power to all that suffer now. Beirut - Santa Fe Your days in one This day undone (The kind that breaks under) All day at once (for me, for you) I'm just too young (And what of my heart) This day was once (Silence before) All grace of lost Can't wait at all (Can't wait at all) Temptation won And what ever comes through the door I'll see it face to face All by your place Sign me up Santa Fe And call your son Sign me up Santa Fe On the cross Santa Fe And all I want Sign me up Santa Fe And call your son And I and I and I alone want you to know And I and I and I alone And I and I and I alone want you to know And I and I and I alone Your days in one This day undone (The kind that breaks under) All day at once (for me, for you) I'm just too young (And what of my heart) Sign me up Santa Fe And call your son Sign me up Santa Fe On the cross Santa Fe And all I want Sign me up Santa Fe And call your son

    Laurel or Yanny?

    Hmmm - I'm really interested in this. I hear Yanny and unlike with the colours of the dress I can't make it switch (at pitch up 30% I hear Yorrel). I don't think the young ears explanation holds (by making assumptions on the above posters age). I think it has more to do with what frequencies we have trained ourselves to focus on. I'd be interested in posters impressions when listening to this frequency sweep. I have the impression that the tone is loudest at around 1500 Hz and that the volume drops sharply at 5 kHz I notice no change anymore above 16 kHz.
  13. Last week on 'record store day' I bought a compilationn of the Flamin' Groovies in nice violet vinyl. The Flamin' Groovies - Slow Death is my favorite song so far. And a life recording of Hot Tuna at the New Orleans Blues House '69 because I love Jack Casady's gnarly bass. Also I'm going to order Hop Along's new album Bark Your Head Off, Dog I've already heard 'Tell Me What The Writer Meant' six or seven times on NPR all songs and it didn't wear down from the original excitement of recognizing Frances Quinlan's voice. Thanks again to Mr. X, for bringing them to my attention.

    What's For Dinner, Take 7

    On our side of the pond the closest thing to ramps is probably Bärlauch (bear leeks) - ramsons. They have become very popular in the past decades, so that you'll find them a lot in supermarkets in germany though they're usually cultivated and lack the flavor of the wild variety. I just use chives instead (for I'm stingy and lazy).
