It's Labor Day weekend - FUCK YOU and DIE SUMMER 2020.
Right now we should be in Atlanta enjoying Dragon Con, but instead, our incompetent leadership is learning science the hard way. Gosh, if only there were ways to approach this pandemic that could minimize our nation's suffering... I guess Death Panels have their upside; they tend to eat their own. But still....

My paltry list of crap, in no particular order:
Anything Box
Men at Work: BaU
Depeche Mode: Remixes
Meatloaf: BOoH
Cage the Elephant: first two
Metallica: MoP
Asia: Asia
Onslaught: VI

And audio books:
Finished Rex Pickett's trilogy, and ended picking up a number of artists and even a book he referenced in the series, Santiago Bizarro - I'm already preparing for some drunken hijinks. Pickett's pissed about getting shafted by the movie, and vents about it for over 500 pages. I mean, earning $400k from a movie that grossed over $250 million, and then having said producer kill any chance your other books could be turned into movies could have a tendency to piss you off -- and it apparently did for roughly 500 pages.
Gregg Hurwitz: Orphan X...I'm about 3/4 through the 3rd book. They're tight, taut thrillers, with excellent pacing, and characterizations. Fans of Ludlum's Bourne identity trilogy will rejoice. Hurwitz is at the top of his game. This is some seriously excellent, and by that I mean some truly excellent, shit. And there is nary a bottle of pinot in sight.
