Seems to be what Fleetwood Mac has told Lindsey Buckingham. This is not good news.
- Actually, various sources make it pretty murky whether he was dismissed by the band or left. As much as I like him as FM's guitarist (and was one of the earliest supporters to say he's under-rated), I don't think he's well-positioned to tour or record as a solo act.
- Interestingly, he is being replaced - on tour - by Mike Campbell and Neil Finn. Campbell, of The Heartbreakers, wrote Boys of Summer, and Heart of the Matter with Don Henley.
- I am amused by the bookface squabble that is ongoing. Many years ago I considered signing up, then asked myself, "Why should I do this?" I'm not particularly thin-skinned, but the notion of obsessing over who did or didn't 'like' my posts seemed juvenile to me - not to mention the suspicion that the company was mining users' information. Although, I'm sure the blog publishing company does some similar version. I guess everyone has to determine their own comfort/discomfort lines.
- Oldest Son texted this to me this morning:
- One of my churches has a future building project on its property. I'm told that the finance committee received a bid for around $40,000 to do some vegetation removal. As the project is over a year out, they spent about $500 and got some goats instead.
- When I was a kid, my Grandfather and I went fishing a lot. He always carried tins of potted meat (sometimes Vienna sausages) and crackers for us to snack on. During high school and college, I continued to enjoy that delicacy, but had pretty well phased it out of my diet by the time I reached 40 (health issues may be exacerbated by simply reading the ingredients list). Last year, I had a tin, for the first time in nearly two decades, and today I had another. I'm thinking of doing an America's Test Kitchen type of comparison between the Armour and Hormel versions. Dollar Tree has the Armours two for a buck:
Pâté du tripe - C'est magnifique!
- On a recent foray to my resale stores, I got me a big ol' book of Bard:
- This copy has been extensively annotated by a prior owner, but what ought one expect for a dime? Hotspur's soliloquy to the King is on pages 893-894. This blog's namesake appears on page 1894:
Yeah, this is the good stuff...
- About three weeks ago, I got a book, not of, but about Shakespeare. I learned that Samuel L.
JacksonClemens was not a Bard fan.
- Daughter and I were out exploring last week, near the equestrian arenas. Being nearby a large pile of dirt, some 10-12' in elevation, she scampered up it while I took the easier path. The backlighting from the arena sorta gave an E.T. ambiance:
- My left thumb, frequently featured as an accessory to this blog's illustrations, now aspires to be an actor.
