FMJRA 2.0: Dinosaur Tales

— compiled by Wombat-socho Title track is from Klaus Schulze’s La Vie Electronique Vol.4, a nice three-disc set of old-school electronic music that could pass for classical if most classical stations weren’t stuck in the 19th century. Should not be confused with this Ray Bradbury collection, which might have inspired Schulze, who was a big […]

FMJRA 2.0: Rip & Tear

— compiled by Wombat-socho Once upon a time there was a rock band from L.A. which included Axl Rose and Tracii Guns. The band reorganized and Axl led his part of the band to stardom. This is a song from the other band. The professional. Ceterum autem censeo Silicon Valley esse delendam. Rule 5 Sunday: […]

FMJRA 2.0: She’s Got A Face That Could Stop A Clock

— compiled by Wombat-socho SOTD, by Cheap Trick Earlier this week, it was noted in the news that former congresscritter Liz Cheney (R-WY) left office considerably more wealthy than she was when she arrived in DC as a freshman. On r/Conservative, someone said they’d be willing to be Mr. Cheney for a slice of all […]

FMJRA 2.0: New Year’s Eve Edition

— compiled by Wombat-socho It’s an ill wind that blows nobody good, as the Bard once wrote (copying others before him) and while I sympathize with folks who took it in the shorts this year thanks to Bidenflation*, I dasn’t complain too loudly, myself. Despite the year’s miserable beginnings in Provo’s Utah Valley Hospital, I […]

FMJRA 2.0: Christmas Eve Edition

— compiled by Wombat-socho Staring out the window, waiting for Dynasty Baseball to bring the 1971 season online – or spring, whichever comes first. In the meantime, tomorrow is Our Lord’s birthday, shared by (among others) Komi Shouko. I hope you all are having a happy one. Ceterum autem censeo Silicon Valley esse delendam. Propaganda, […]

FMJRA 2.0: Rogers Hornsby Was Right About That, Anyway

— compiled by Wombat-socho People ask me what I do in winter when there’s no baseball. I’ll tell you what I do. I stare out the window and wait for spring. – Rogers Hornsby Well, it’s all over for this year. My Senators finished 61-101, nine games worse than the historical team, but then Ted’s […]

FMJRA 2.0: Mental Door

— compiled by Wombat-socho Well, with three games each left against California & Oakland, and after dropping all five games this week (three against Boston and two against Oakland), it doesn’t look like the Senators are going to avoid 100 losses this season. Better luck in ’71, I hope. Ceterum autem censeo Silicon Valley esse […]

FMJRA 2.0: I Scent The Morning Air

— compiled by Wombat-socho .400 ball this week; lost 2 of 3 to the Dodgers and split a pair with the Angels. Bah humbug. On the upside, the third volume of Klaus Schulze’s La vie electronique is just as good as the first two. Ceterum autem censeo Silicon Valley esse delendam. In The Mailbox: 11.30.22 […]
