I've been trying to figure out if Open Ear is sold out, or not on sale yet or what...

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was 20 years old during Occupy Wall Street


If 13 Going on 30 was made now the early timeline would be set in 2002.



Good times.

I was talking to a young man today who is in to music, and I asked him if he has a turntable. He told me he has never even SEEN a CD.

He then asked me how you put records in. Not “on”, “in”.

I know I'm getting old as I can't drink more than 2 pints casually these days. A few years back, I would drink at least 6, sometimes 10.

Is it age that's making getting up every morning impossible?

... when the bad things you hear about in the world inevitably start to impinge on your own seemingly-charmed life. Found out in the last while about 2 old friends whose marriages are abusive - in one case the old friend is the perpetrator. My mind is kinda blown by it all.

Wow, I just googled it, she's a year younger than me!
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez ? Ah sure she's only a young wan.

Varadkar is several years younger than me.
Final proof to me that cynical pricks come in all ages and
every generation seems to make the same mistakes.
Also see Macron.

I had pretty much given up on my generation when i was seventeen.

As you might say, jaykers.

I'd like to say I don't know any abusers but received wisdom suggests I do and don't know it.

I do know at least two abused. Both guys, as it happens.
