for #musicMonday, Shriek (2014), by Wye Oak, a band I’ll see live for the 3+ time this week. standout tracks: The Tower, Logic of Color

interesting & funny, on meeting strangers “In my past life, I would have walked straight past this man. Now, here I am at the fanciest party I’ve ever been to discovering his past felonies”

nice, brief summary of today’s World Cup 2018 draw results. lots of interesting match-ups; really looking forward to next June

feckless liar @tedcruz on unconfirmed cause of Border Patrol death: “a stark reminder of the ongoing threat that an unsecure border poses to the safety of our communities”, vs. on gun control after Sutherland Springs: “We don’t need politics right now”

Gessen, on consent & changing norms: “while we think we are moving forward, we may be willingly transporting ourselves back to a more sexually restrictive era, one that denied agency to women”

“welcome back to Monday after a 4-day break, asshole”

– my car battery’s dying words in the parking lot this evening, pretty sure

a masterpiece for #musicMonday: Sleater-Kinney’s The Hot Rock (1999). standout tracks: End of You; Burn, Don’t Freeze

…what else, today? saw Thor Ragnarok, a really good time for what it is, almost too funny; cont. Alias Grace (also Netflix), great & gripping so far; Liverpool, draw with Chelsea at home, unconvincing performance, expected better

just watched Sarah Silverman’s A Speck of Dust on Netflix; amazing, bracing, & hilarious

Happy Alice’s Restaurant Day. hope you have at least one Thanksgiving dinner that couldn’t be beat

finally got the basalt gravel fill in (most of it, minus the 1/4 yard I still have to get out of our driveway before Thanksgiving guests arrive tomorrow)
