    Outlaw Country is a favorite for me on Sirius/XM, although for the last half year I have been oddly living on the classical music channel. I have really grown fond of it, much better in the car than news (which I have quit since October or so except for newspapers and other written sources).

    Yes. As Onyx said in their seminal work Slam: "Now everybody wanna sound grimey." I like my country and rap to be a little dirty and rough around the edges.

    Maybe that's why those venues keep getting shut down for health violations.

    I looked this up and listened to at least a bit of most of them. I knew one song. To further demonstrate my dearth of classic rock knowledge, I actually looked up Led Zeppelin by mistake because I'm not really sure I know the difference between the two. I knew 4 of their songs. I think this is incredibly weird for a person in his late 40s. But I am almost completely unaware of either of them.
    Dude, coming from NC, you should not openly admit that.

    My friends would have totally beaten up your friends. We were into "alternative" rock - Joy Division, Psychedelic Furs, Human Sexual Response, The Church. Actually your friends pretty much bullied my friends with the long hair and eye makeup. Nevermind.

    Corned beef and cabbage tonight, with Reubens tomorrow if the storms don't take us out.

    Now I want chocolate chip muffins. And I think there is a pack of Martha White in the pantry.

    Once I tried to go there, and the front door was locked even though there were two people eating in there. No luck getting in. Next day, found out it was the Dalai Lama who was in town to meet with Jimmy Carter to discuss an international dispute.

    Needless to say — I loved that place.
    About a decade ago there was a great Dalai Lama dining story in the New Yorker. He was in town being feted left and right, they had some very nice meals for him, all vegetarian of course...alas, Tibet (being at the altitude it is) is NOT a place that is widely vegetarian, nor is the Dalai Lama...so he got back to his room at the Waldorf and ordered up a big juicy steak.

    I have a group of friends that gets together and smokes cigars, drinks beer, eats massive quantities of meat and discusses politics about every 6 weeks or so. We have done this for 5 years or so, even socially distanced during the pandemic. They never cease to be amazed that I am completely unaware of this music. I am basically the classic rock version of Nell.

    My bestie in high school triple majored in Russian, political science and history at Duke. The only thing we beat up is the SAT.

    I had a roommate at Duke who tripled in electrical engineering, biomedical engineering, and computer science. He left high school a year early because he had completely exhausted the science and math curriculum (at the NC School of Science and Math, no less!). He finished his biomedical engineering PhD last week, but he has no high school diploma.

    Did you just make a “Tay in the wind” reference?

    I know and work with a lot of folks like this in medicine. LOVE doing anatomy and physiology/Physics lectures for these folks. Basically as soon as I diagram it out on the whiteboard, they understand it better than I do anyway. They are generally not particularly skilled at communicating, however, and I once told one of these guys he seemed particularly gregarious that day because he was able to look at the tops of the other guy's shoes as he mumbled his answers in rounds.

    Thankfully, this roommate of mine wasn't like that...fun, personable, very kind and welcoming.
    He was always splicing together custom length ethernet cables and even building entire computers for fellow students to make extra cash.

    I literally cannot imagine what that sort of skill set is like.
