Louder Than Life music festival - ran for three days (Fri-Sun) in Louisville KY this past weekend.  The photo is of the Saturday night crowd attending - something like 42K that one night.

Alice has her own fan following at these things - I lost count of how many people commented on it, and several people stopped me to take pictures.  😄 

Here’s the lineup:

ETA:

BTW, wanna hear the kicker?  This crowd was for the Saturday headliner - Guns ‘N Roses - which was the band about which I probably cared the absolute LEAST.  But we stuck around for a while, and you know what?  Slash and the rest of the guitar corps are still 100% on point, but somebody kidnapped Axl Rose and replaced him with a great big ol’ Chucky doll.  He stunk up the place like an open can of tuna fish in a honeymooner’s car.  Insert every Fat Axl meme you ever saw, and it was 10% shy of doing reality justice.  Like, fucking WOW.  🤣🤣🤣

Oh, my. I admit I've never been a follower of Axl Rose, but I never would have recognized him from that pic.

Actually the only names on that flyer I know are Guns 'n Roses, Marilyn Manson, Dropkick Murphys (hell, yeah!) and only recently "Disturbed" after I randomly found a video of them doing "Sounds of Silence." Normally I am not a fan of covers, but that one is truly outstanding, particulary since it comes from someone who looks like he should be tied to the front of a truck in a "Mad Max" movie.

Aside from hating people and crowds I'd like to see more shows. We don't get good stuff, here, mostly.

Had a wonderful weekend with no water. There was a leak between the water main and my house. I called the city they claimed it wasn't on their side so I paid a plumber $450 to come dig a ginormous trench in my yard, where he did find a couple of leaks but guess what? the main leak was in the cities water main connecting to my house. My yard is so lovely.

I also had 5 separate conversations with 3 near total strangers because my sister sent them to me. She's trying to "evict" the people she invited to live with her. after Goodone died she invited a girl to live there who had lived with Goodone several years ago. Evil expected her to be so grateful to have a place to live that she would essentially be Evil's slave. We had taken the car away from Evil because of her midnight escapade so she expected a chauffeur, a maid and someone to do yardwork and feed the animals. Yes, she was driving Evil to her appointments and yes she was taking care of the yard and pets. She was "hard to wake up" and was sleeping too much during the day for Evil's tastes so now she wants them gone. According to me, Evil is on a power trip, because the girl didn't jump when Evil asked and "made herself at home" that is all she did wrong. So Evil posted eviction papers on the house and says the sheriff will come Tuesday to be sure they're gone. She changed a lock on the back door. She's grounded the car (the insurance ran out so no one is legal to drive it anymore). Evil thinks she has the county "providing" for her, as in home visit to take a look at the bills. She thinks the county is going to give her rides to therapy, classes, grocery store etc and start paying her bills as well as she will qualify for disability because of her mental status. None of this is guaranteed and if this falls through, what is her plan then? So some random girl is calling me and has Evil's side of the story and some other guy who "used to be a cop" was over there trying to negotiate peace. I definitely think Evil went about it the wrong way, she didn't need to get hostile. They haven't done anything to her, she is paranoid and thinks they're stealing but everything she claimed they stole they were able to produce and it was where it had last been seen. Everything she puts down she forgets, she lost her glasses, her phone, money and she accused us all of taking at one point or another. OMG she is such a mess and I don't want her to be my problem but I can't make her these other peoples problem either. Seriously, wrong sister died.

@nachomama: unless you’re holding a pistol to her head and forcing her to act a certain way, you aren’t “making” her shit - she’s doing that all on her own.  Not your monkey, not your football.

In terms of 100% reality, sometimes shit happens - and sometimes we’re related to it.  And sometimes you just have to scrape it off your shoes, knock some of the dust off, and keep heading on down the road.

Unless y’all have some significant assets in common, it might be time to simply say “enough” - and “later”.

My liver hasn't had to work much for over 40 years, bout time I start seeing if it's Irish.

Goodone was suffering from throat cancer and emphysema so anything she did to feel better was ok by me. Apparently she had been smoking a little medicinal marijuana and if it helped, great. She needed to eat so if she got the munchies, better. I do not care, she suffered plenty. So she had a little stash and we may have had a tiny puff, puff pass moment, honestly been over 10 years for me so not that big of a deal. Apparently big, big deal for Evil. All these rando strangers she sends to me have all mentioned that she's throwing me under the bus telling them I smoked. Evil, however, on her "big mission from god" was taking the stash across state lines to give to some ex boyfriend who is dying of cancer. She leaves that out when she tells people I imbibed.

Evil was making weird notes, 2 names of people from high school and a celebrity then drawing lines to connect them. Jesse Sarabia, Jessica Villanueve, Jessica Simpson. Debbie McGee, Debbie something and Debbie Gibson. Then lines kinda like how detectives hunt down serial killers. All from 30 years ago. At the top of one of her lists she wrote that I said I offered my mom medical marijuana when she had breast cancer when I was in high school. I was kinda being a jerk to my mom but if she had truly thought it might help her and wanted some I would have gotten it for her. But mostly I wanted her to be shocked I asked. Because I was a nerd in high school, I had my moments and actually managed a pretty cool reputation for weed, entirely innocently, but unbeknownst to Evil. So she's really jumping on the idea that I may have done something bad in my youth.

I have watched the entire series.  Some of those later episodes do kind of get cringe worthy, but I just can't look away.  So horrible that I have to watch.

Lee Meriwether was half way decent as Catwoman on "Batman"  the movie.  

Her acting on "Time Tunnel", yikes.  Just horrible.

Her acting on "Barnaby Jones" was okay, not great. 

But then again, watching Buddy Ebsen take all day to raise and shoot his weapon was pretty horrible in and of itself.   His character (Barnaby Jones) drank a lot of milk and never killed anyone, just winged them.

He makes Barney Fife look like a sharpshooter.

I used to love Buck Rogers. I don't think I've seen an episode of Barnaby Jones in 30 years but I don't remember him being all that great. I didn't care about Buddy Ebsen once he wasn't Jed Clampett.

A couple years ago I watched the Rockford Files from the beginning and I liked it so much, yes very different. Him and the Charlie's Angels detectives always having to pull over to find a pay phone. And he was not a good fighter, always getting his ass kicked.

There's an episode of Charlie's Angels that always sticks in my mind, when they went to prison. And they had to take showers and get de-loused. I remember asking why they were getting sprayed but I think I was a little bit fascinated by the communal showering and how fixated the guard lady was. And I always think we were mean children because we always thought Kate Jackson was the "ugly" Angel and seriously she's a very lovely woman! I was always a Kelly if we played Charlie's Angels but Sabrina may be my favorite in retrospect.

James Garner was one of my favorites - pretty much any role he was in (Maverick, Rockford Files, the “Support Your Local xxx” movies, etc.), he played the comedic antihero to perfection.

I was a teenage boy in the 70s when my older sister and her friends (wanting a male point of view, I guess?) asked me which was my favorite Angel.  My sister got TOTALLY bent out of shape when I said Sabrina/Kate Jackson, and stuck to my answer despite her badgering me that I was an idiot for picking her (which she was going to do anyway, no matter who I picked; I was two years younger than her, but I always got how the big sister/little brother thing worked better than she did).

Erin Gray knew how to fill out a uniform   There wasn't an ounce of fat on her. She was sexy as hell.  All of that sexiness disappeared when she joined the cast of "Silver Spoons".  Yikes, "Silver Spoons" was awful.

I really liked Erin Gray. When boys argued over who was the "hotter Heather" Locklear versus Thomas (Fall Guy) I was always like I would have chosen Erin Gray or of course Kelly from charlies Angels (Linda Carter also) as my go to. I didn't really get the appeal of Farrah Fawcett either. I thought she was odd looking. I think I like brunettes because Daisy Duke was up next in the lineup. Maybe because I grew up in New Mexico and we didn't have any blondes. Although I really liked Jamie Sommers, The Bionic Woman. I think I was a very odd child...I was attracted to the way she pushed her hair back behind her ear when she wanted to "highlight" her super sonic hearing.

For some reason I really like "The Far Side of the Mountain" a movie Lindsey Wagner did about a skiier who was paralyzed from falling off a mountain. What 6 year old is mesmerized by watching essentially physical therapy? But oooh, I loved me some Lindsey Wagner.

Farrah Fawcett did have that famous poster in the seventies.   Everyone I knew had that poster.

The only thing more popular were Kiss t-shirts.

Never a fan of the "Keep On Truckin" thing.

Always got the impression that it was some big truck driver, wearing only a thong, while riding away on a unicycle, juggling his balls.

IIRC, when Cheryl Tiegs used to smile, she would clinch her teeth together.

I do remember "Dynamite" and "Bananas" magazines.
