It can take years for a musician to discover his or her voice. But in the meantime, they find themselves by discovering the music of other artists.

If you see my talk about gun control going forward, know this: I put my money where my mouth is first. I'm not wealthy, I can't give as much as I'd like. But, I hope I can persuade a few of the folks I engage with on social media who aren't already doing so to back up their talk with money.

In HateSong, we ask our favorite musicians, writers, comedians, actors, and so forth to expound on the one song they hate most in the world.The hater: Part of the fun of being a Yo La Tengo fan is the group’s penchant for obscure cover songs, revealing a deep love for a wide variety of genres.

My Doctor Who blogging took a hit as my discovery of Mr. Robot coincided with chunk of JNT-era stories to re-watch, but I'm getting back on the horse. ;)

Amid two invigorating new songs and three fresh renditions of Yo La Tengo classics, nine wide-ranging covers are performed with varying degrees of sweetness, sadness, silliness and joy.

USA is postponing tonight's planned  broadcast of the season finale of Mr. Robot due to this morning's murder of a news crew in Virginia.

(Slight spoiler, I guess we can expect something similar ...)  

Will the postponement make it easier for you to watch the show without the tragedy in mind, or does it not it make a difference, but seem like the right thing to do anyways?

I've never really understood this. I mean if I knew the victims I can't imagine I'd be watching tv anyway.

I haven't had time to catch up on this show yet though so this one doesn't annoy me personally.

Like your regular size fanzines, it's got original fiction, useful information, original art and photography, and an essay, of sorts. So there it is. Digital and paper copies of Issue #1 are free while supplies last! In fact, if you're interested in contributing to a fanzine, but want to start ...

Totally random, but a commuter from NYC to Hoboken is referenced early in the story, that commuter's name? Ira Kaplan. Is it our Ira? Listen to: Aging Tunnels Under Hudson River Threaten To Disrupt Transport, Commerce - http://one.npr.org/i/434059508:434088584
It's been 105 years since the rail tunnels between Manhattan and New Jersey were built. But even as they show their wear and tear, politicians disagree on who should foot the bill to replace them.

The show hadn't been the same, it hadn't been the Doctor Who I'd grown up with, since Tom Baker had donned the burgundy. Sure, there were bright spots and times when it seemed like it could make new magic, if not recapture the old. But "The Twin Dilemma" marked a definitive end. Whatever advances would be made in those final seasons of McCoy's Doctor, it was too little, too late. I'd pretty much checked out. Never stopped re-watching the Pertwee, Tom Baker, and Peter Davison stories I managed to collect.

But, I only watched the Colin Baker and McCoy stories because I felt like it was my duty as a Whovian. Not exactly hatewatching, guess I'll call it dutywatching, built up a resentment I'm still working through, trying to re-watch the late JN-T era stories decades without the old baggage. :P

Don't expect I'll every really enjoy them, but I'd like to get to a point where I can at least see what it is the fans who do like them are able to see.

I guess I was lucky in this regard. We only had Tom Baker on Public TV when I was growing up and those were reruns. I started watching the classics after the return in 2005 - binge watching disks from Netflix - so I saw almost all of the Doctors in order. I didn't like Colin Baker or Sylvester McCoy as much as I liked the others, but, binge watching anything Who related, I managed to enjoy them anyway. Then I found out about the stuff that was going on during JN-T's tenure and a lot of things made sense. I'm still not crazy about some of the McCoy stories but I do enjoy him and Ace and I like Colin Baker. I think Baker would have been amazing if the behind the scenes stuff hadn't been going on .

Introduction
Blogging primarily about Doctor Who while I watch (and re-watch) the entire series. 

Sure, I could have chosen any number of other shows to bounce my interest in philosophy, history, progressive politics, secularism, and pop culture off; but, while others have burned brighter for periods of time, no other series has held my interest for so long. Nor is another likely to.

I've been a few times now and can heartily recommend the pulled pork and Aviator Monster (pulled pork, brisket, and bacon) sandwiches. The brisket in the sandwich was fine, not as jerky-like as the serving E.B. got in his/her April 1, 2011 review. Friendly service at the tables and at the bar. It was a little slow the first time, but that's to be expected in the first month of a new restaurant's operation. Has been quicker both times since that first visit. The baked beans have great flavor and the fries were very good. Will definitely keep going back for more.

The new library is being built around the corner and looks like it will be a beautiful facility. The existing library is desperately undersized but I mostly request books online and just run in to pick them up and drop off on my way to and from work. The library staff are always very friendly and helpful. It's a pain getting our double stroller through the front door, but I'm hoping that won't be an issue in the new building. All in all it's nice little small town library.
