This just reminds me of the opening credits of a later season of Roseanne.
So, this morning, for the first time in a few weeks grandprix.com had an update about Schumacher, which I was thankful to have, as I still think about the dude a lot and wish he’d be OK, though he probably won’t be, even if he does ever wake up. Anyhow, while it didn’t give me great hope, it did say he was off a respirator and that he was still trying to be awoken.
“Schumacher’s close friends such as Jean Todt and Ross Brawn are alternating at his bedside and speaking to the great German in English, as they did during their ultra-successful Ferrari days.
The report said that during these visits, at which recordings of pit radio conversations and F1 engine sounds are played in order to stimulate his memories, the expression on Schumacher’s face sometimes changes.
And when the doctors are in the room, Schumacher reportedly often grimaces, or his arms move.”
Nobody likes doctors, apparently.

Nobody can say I ain’t dedicated to making my old lady happy…
When Nicole was still on break from school in January, she decided to start getting The Gilmore Girls from the library and rewatching the series. I must have been around for season 5 because the menu music got into my head and I would just sing along to it in this ridiculous voice all the time.
One night we decided it’d be a hilarious ringtone and I tried doing it with the DVD but wasn’t happy with the overall quality. That’s the 4track recording basement rocker in me, I guess.
Even though it took me almost 2 months to actually do, tonight while she was out with her homie, after I got sick of doing the dishes, I went on YouTube, found the wormy song and made this amusingly stupid recording which Nicole may or may not end up as using as her ring tone.
Oh, the things we do for love…
Obviously I can’t sing, nor am I actually attempting to. You don’t get the full treatment unless you can see the crazy in my eyes whilst singing this…
For some reason I wanted to hear this one song I made years ago, however, I don’t know if I ever digitized it, as it was only a snipped of an idea…
So instead I listened to this thing that I made circa 2002. Specifically mixed for headphones.
I always called it my Avant-Garde Halloween song…
This was about as atmospheric as my 4track recordings ever got.
While the whole video is interesting, the 2-4 minute area are what I always found so mesmerizing about Skylab. It was so big and neat to see them flying around like Peter Pan.
Some asshole Italian buyer recently left this neutral feedback for me:
“Broken record and fixed by the seller in an apparent track one compromised”
I don’t even know what that means?! How can anybody, other than The Baby Jesus, fix a broken record?
One thing I can tell you is that I sure as hell can’t fix a broken record. And even if I could, I wouldn’t try selling it for $7.99!
The neutral feedback is the first notice of any kind that I got that they buyer had received anything other than exactly what they ordered.
I am 99.9% sure that the record got mangled during shipment and the Italian buyer knows this was no fault of mine, but wanted to “hurt” me in some way, so he left neutral feedback.
Over the 10 years that I’ve been selling vinyl online, whenever there is the rare problem with an item, be it the buyer feels I over-graded a record or the LP was damaged in transit… all they want is some kind of resolution and nine times out of ten will send you a message or email expressing their concern or dissatisfaction in hopes of working something out before resorting to the leaving of feedback good, bad, or indifferent.
This guy just left malicious, slanderous feedback with out attempting to even open any line of communication, which I find suspect.
Being that over 95% of my sales are of vinyl records, this feedback distresses me. While I know most of my vinyl collecting colleagues that make up the majority of my business will see through this bullshit feedback, I still feel it makes me look bad and even though I know I have done nothing wrong and have nothing to feel bad about as I do everything by the book, my feelings are still hurt and my day has been ruined.
This is my favorite episode of The Young Ones.
This will forever be my favorite show and has been since I was 5 years old.
Honestly, my folks shouldn’t have let me watch this, but I’m thankful they did.
The last time they did their laundry I was but 4 days old…

This is like my inner dialogue in picture form.
When Nicole first got her S4 in December, her way of making fun of the amount of photos I take of simple everyday life was to start taking photos of me taking photos of things.
This one is my favorite that she took.
However, in my defense, I was actually in the office… working… taking pictures of opera box sets.
