Fox News talks about the San Francisco hellscape, meanwhile I’m halfway through an urban hike in the middle of the city at a sushi restaurant before I hike back down.

@Bronwyn ah, Glen Park. It is amazing to have a canyon like that in the middle of the city.

Check it out. Revenue from vinyl jumped 10 percent to $1.4 billion in 2023, and outsold CDs for the second time since 1987, according to the Recording Industry Association of America.

I followed Summer around the fence line while she did her rounds. She found these late blooming daffodils in the bright morning sun.

@NorcalGma2 absolutely stunning. The lighting makes them look otherworldly!

For , this is George, from London.

I am told by those who know George well that he is not an intellectual giant. Nevertheless, he is very floofy and quite friendly.

@fredrikandersson @UnitedSpaceCats that’s one of those big-eared cats that people take on walks, isn’t it? 😁

Don’t think about making art, just get it done. Let everyone else decide if it’s good or bad, whether they love it or hate it. While they are deciding, make even more art.

@sjharder very! I actually tried to watch this game last night and couldn’t understand why it kept saying the game wasn’t available. 😁

I’m cat sitting and this little darling walked across the oven top and turned on the broiler at three in the morning. Good thing the oven beeps! Look at her just trying to pretend she’s not a wannabe arsonist.

This is the world we live in. The consistent veto by the U.S. on the Security Council vis-a-vis all things Palestinian is incredibly frustrating.

Really pushing that vinyl, aren't you? 🤣

@stevenray@sfba.social avatar

@lislegaard hahahahaha, this stuff is ridiculous 😆

I rarely see 30 second excerpts instead of full tracks as pre-sale previews. That's interesting. I like the angle of this label though, lathe cut 7" singles. Will check them out.

Just so you all know, I had two seizures last night, so there will be no "News Roundup" today for Prism Hockey. I need a bit of time to recover and therefore spend as little time as possible today looking at screens. I want to apologize for that. Next week we should be back on track.

@CityHoosier @sjharder 🙏🏻 health needs to come first. Rest and treat yourself well.

@skry put a smile on my face to see that there’s a wildflower center named after Lady Bird. 😊

Digging through my Lightroom catalog, I noticed this one was a five minute six second exposure, which is unusual for impatient me.

Anyway, here's the Bay Bridge.

@BobHorowitz that’s life here in the hellscape, Bob. 😁

Today’s #wine is a Tannat from Castoro Cellars in Paso Robles, California. I wrote a review of it last August (see second pic), so no new one today. 🍷

A screenshot from Cellartracker.com showing my review of this wine from last August. I gave it an 89. Would buy again!

@tofu hi again. I just ordered a Bodega Garzón Reserva Tannat from Uruguay. Looking forward to comparing it to what we had last week.
