But I suppose it might be better to avoid GMG after, say, the second drink (I've only had one).

Words, I think, to live by.

That's an actual example of Fake News. If you read that article, you wouldn't know the WHO attack was just a prelude. Going by the headlines Google shows me, everyone else did the same thing as Politico. Even Fox News.  You have to scroll down to get to the main part of what Trump was saying (and is probably more consequential than what he did with WHO).

The article does not indicate how much he whined and blamed everyone except himself for coddling China.

He said nothing about what's going on in Minneapolis (which deserves a headline of its own). It wasn't a real press conference; he just read a long statement and walked off.

President Snowflake has no stomach for a real press conference.

Just remember that I created this thread under my old account, so unlike the other thread I can't lock it when it annoys me too much.

Would these be the same performances?

Which is what I have
 Symphony 5 and Memorial to Lidice seem to be on another CD in that series?

Both fine CDs!

So this is the sixth or seventh day in a row that one member has gone back and deleted all his previous night's drunken snark


I don't delete my posts.  A moderator did.  You will have to take it up with the moderators.

The Jazz Lounge / Re: Bluegrass & Old Time Music
« Last post by Old San Antone on Today at 02:33:26 PM »
The Goat Rodeo Sessions combines the talents of four different solo artists, cello virtuoso Yo-Yo Ma, mandolin master Chris Thile, bluegrass fiddler Stuart Duncan, bassist Edgar Meyer, each a Grammy Award winning star in their own right, to create a unique, genre-breaking sound that’s part composed, part improvised and uniquely American. The music is so difficult to pull off, the group likens it to a Goat Rodeo – an aviation term for a situation in which 100 things need to go right to avoid disaster. The album is highlighted by an appearance by vocalist Aoife O’Donovan.

Okay, it's not Bluegrass, but it's still pretty cool.  All these musicians are masters on their instruments, and I can't say enough about Aoife O’Donovan.  Her singing first captured my attention with her work with Crooked Still, but over the ast decade or so I have continue to be impressed with each new project she unveils.

Of course, Chris Thile is multi-faceted, as are all of these musicians.  All I can say, is give it a listen.  Yo-Yo Ma may surprise you.

As someone who sometimes posts to GMG after a few too many, I do approve of deleting drunken snark.  But I suppose it might be better to avoid GMG after, say, the second drink (I've only had one).
