Re: Winter Reading Thread 2018-19

I was and still am a fan of alt. country, and Whiskeytown was one of the standard-bearers in the late 90s. I saw Whiskeytown three times, and twice saw Ryan Adams behaving very badly. So, I knew I'd enjoy this one, written by their tour manager. https://www.musicconnection.com/wp-content/uploads/20...

Re: 2019 NFL Offseason Thread

I find it's best to just assume the worst these days about anything to do with the NFL and go from there. There's probably at least a 10 percent chance that Belichick has a sex dungeon in his basement where he brings runaways before violating and dismembering them and dumping them at sea. I'd put J...
