  1. More Richard Wright and Gilmour. I like this arrangement so much better than the version from Wright's album.
  2. Today, Echoes is my favorite PF tune. Tomorrow it will be something else. The call and response between Gilmour and Wright at the end of this is the best.
  3. Wife and I are going to Tulsa for the game next week. I felt pretty good about a quick getaway, easy Shocker win and casino time when I booked the hotel and bought tickets. I'm not so sure now. The AAC is much better than I thought it would be.
  4. I watched Penny in action when Memphis played at WSU. He sat in the timeout huddles and held the clipboard while Mike Miller did all of the coaching. Penny is just the recruiter and bill payer.
  5. Yep, 2004. I use mine like a truck. If I take out the back seat I can haul 4' x 8' plywood sheets. Can't close the trunk lid but it works. 2 deer will fit in the trunk at one time. Redneck as hell but it costs me next to nothing other than fuel and insurance. I have several miles of flintrock road everyday and it stands up to it better than most cars and a lot smoother than a truck. I'm obviously not trying to impress anybody.
  6. The odometer of my daily driver currently sits at 199991. When I return from lunch it will show 200000.

    I don't know if I posted her earlier, probably did, but fuck it. Here she is again, Anita Baker. The song from @3:30 to 3:50 makes the hair on my neck stand up.

    My daughter told me that when she hears "Midnight at the Oasis" she thinks she needs to put on her jammies and brush her teeth.

    Way back in the day I would put 2-3 albums on the old Marantz at bedtime and put the kids to sleep. Santana "Abraxas", Pink Floyd "Atom Heart Mother" and Crosby Stills and Nash first album were favorites that they still listen to now. Stop Making Sense came along later but the tunes from that were staples in my son's bar band when he was still doing that.
  10. I've always thought it was sad and strange that every Mexican that migrates north forgets how to cook by the time they reach Kansas.
  11. I can't defend El Dorado but the school has been turning out some pretty good D1 players for the last 15-20 years. They have won 6 National Championships but none since 2008. My DIL is an Administrator (not athletic) at BCCC. She and my son host 5 or 6 athletes every year. Most of these kids are from very challenging backgrounds and this is their only chance to get ahead. It's cool to see the ones that realize this and really sad to watch the ones that will never get it. I have no idea what his situation is but maybe this kid will see the light.
  12. I don't think any of them have quit since Gil Meche.
