Re: Politics, Everyday, All day... morning, noon and night....II

Something that really surprises me about the email leads from the DNC that presumably threw the election towards Mr. Trump is that nobody from the Democratic side is denying them or that they ever took place. If the emails to and from John Podesta actually did call Bernie Sanders "...that miserable...

Re: Politics, Everyday, All day... morning, noon and night....II

Never thought I would say it, but sometimes I long for the days of Reagan or Nixon. At the time I hated them with a passion . Now they seem pretty tame. yeah I see that as pretty pervasive with the "left". If you don't agree, you are evil and they hate you. The right tends to eyeroll, point and lau...

One year a landslide closed the tracks so we had to switch to a bus. Didn't work out well. Of course we sold it as a train trip, but still. And Lucky, don't go around hanging everything on Trump. The deficits are unsustainable; we cannot build an economy on a Ponzi scheme. This is a start. One I'm ...

Jesus Christ, they really just don't care anymore. The point of trademarking Burning Man and BRC was to PREVENT its use in media. But now its just about approval. Plus the movie looks like pure shite.

Jonathan Demme, RIP. Great director of many great films. Probably used music better than any director. Here's a great scene from his movie Something Wild with The Feelies playing a Bowie cover.

So out strategy this year is, I log into the waiting room as soon as it opens and my wife logs in right at noon. So far, her green man is way ahead of mine. Conclusion: the waiting room means jack all.

I'm also curious if a VPN would affect anything. I just started using one this week thanks to the HORRIBLE repeal of the FCC privacy rules. I might not use the VPN for the ticket-buying process just in case.

Totally normal first time. Soon you will learn to lower your expectations to pretty much zero so that everything is a pleasant surprise. For instance, I'm not counting on getting any damn tickets in the main sale tomorrow. Won't happen.
