I got that cd...Oranges and Lemons. Big fan of it! I used to listen all the time in college, thereafter.

Damn songwriters are hard to keep up with, always looking for the best rhymes and such.

What's a cd? wait...it's coming back to me....

I bought my Yamaha at a place in Homewood on Halsted in 90 or 91.They gave me like $150 gift cert. something to Hegewisch Records. I remember getting 12 cd's and pretty sure this was one of them lol.

Still got the stereo and all my cd's, just haven't hooked my stereo up in like 8 years. Just play my bluetooth and work system. I still got tapes too lol. In fact, I think I'm going to play one for for the 1st time in years tomorrow on a boombox I play baseball games on during work lol. Some Who (not to be confused with WHO these days) bootlegs from the 70's I taped from the vinyls I have. Ah, those metal/chrome tapes. 03-cloud9

Bowing to competition from electronics superstores, 40-year-old Musicraft is closing its Homewood store, the last of the Palatine-based company's stores in the area. David Clark, Musicraft's president/owner, says the store will close in about a month.

Yup. That was it. 04-cheers

I remember Musiccraft. I spent many years and my parents cash learning guitar, only to forget about it in my 20s.

Since we're stolling down south side memory lane and music, do you recall a Yardbird's records on 63rd (and around Kedzie) in Chicago? I spent some of my hard earned cash as a teen there.

And for the record, I still have a bunch of cassettes in the basement!

I just heard the Germans cancelled October Fest this year...October Fest, jeez.

I, for one, will attempt to keep the tradition alive in my basement and backyard, consuming Ayinger, Bitburger and other brews, doing the chicken dance by myself, and incoherently mumbling what sound like the words to Edelweiss until my 80+ year old German immigrant neighbors plead with me to stop. Can't wait. It's entertainment in the year of covid.

If you can stream it on Zoom, that would be the icing on the cake (or froth on the beer).

Right now the Administration is shitting a brick. How many students will not return in fall. Even though they got more money from state, the state has less money. NIU does not have a billion dollar endowment. The directional schools are in financial trouble. They are playing wait and see before making tough decisions. The state of Illinois has asked federal government for 40 billion dollars to shore up their mismanaged finances. I hope I am wrong but higher education is in serious trouble

To be fair I deleted all 3 of the most egregious Bill Gates/WHO related posts, which had no place in this thread or in the normal threads.

Only conservative views are being targeted here. This is pretty ridiculous. Welcome to China I guess. How can Big Man and NIU007 not have warning levels when all they do is post political rants

I watched church on my computer today like I have for the past month. I truly did not realize that was a depiction of you that was nailed to the cross above the altar.

I heard a brief interview with the President of Michigan State who is also an epidemiologist IIRC (or something related) and even he sounded uncertain what higher ed and related sports would look like for the near future.

Sure, there's larger existential questions over the long term, but there's day-to-day operational things to be figure out- beyond just the basic course delivery issues- how do you build community online? Deliver student support services? Unlocking those issues seem like the key to survival

NIU has declining enrollment, small endowment, inadequate state funding and high overhead costs. We shall see

No, I'm a tittle further south, east. Hegewisch was my place then Rock Records dtown near work.

BTW, found my Who bootlegs today. But I found another classic. 1988 GNR live at The Ritz i taped of XRT!!! Sounded really good. Tomorrow maybe Pearl Jam off XRT from early 90's!!!

The arena's and organizations cannot otherwise provide for the safety of all attending. Best case scenario is for them to say it's your decision to attend meaning you've been exposed or are willing to take a chance should at some point it get's minimal. I have Bears season tickets and I hope if they get to this point I have the option of a refund. I have diabetes and have contact with my 80 year old parents.

That said, I think it will get to a point late summer where teams will practice. They will be able to test players daily which will lower the risk. But I bet some will not go along with it at all levels. Whether they play games is another story.

There has never been a successful vaccine for a corona virus. This won't be the first. Life will go on. As for the "you take the risk" aspect.thats literally how the world works every day. You go out and risk getting something, it stops no one.

So let's root hard for that vaccine. Good news: Covid-19 shares some characteristics with influenza and some things that originated in China recently, like SARS, so researchers are not starting from a dead stop. Bad news: No one knows how long it will take to find a vaccine. There still isn't one for AIDS 45+ years on.
This is exactly the right take. Life will not be "normal" until there is a vaccine or enough of us have been infected AND they can prove that infection equals immunity.

No vaccine but medicine that relieves symptoms effectively for many. Unfortunately I think that's becoming a 1st option too quickly and to some, the only option. If covid-19 was primarily matter blood transfusion, reusing needles and sticking your jimmy in the wrong place, most would be fine.

The vast majority now need no special treatment to releave the symptoms.

I think sports will become the least of their worries. Survival in a changed world will be their biggest challenge. I can see sports dropped at all but the top tier U's and even then following a Div III or club model. The pro sports will transition to developing their own minor leagues (XFL?) as a replacement. I cannot see jamb packed stadiums any time soon.

RE: Realistic fall football timelines?
I am wondering if fall sports will happen this year. Right now hotels and airlines are basically shut down. They could consider what baseball is considering, having regional leagues. NiU, NW, Illionois, Wisconsin, WMU, etc. Something that is a close bus ride to and from.

RE: Realistic fall football timelines?
As far as fall football I think Major League Baseball could be a good test case for the rest of the sports scene assuming baseball gets started sometime this summer. Each sport is different and will have its own particular obstacles to overcome but if baseball gets started and then has Coronavirus problems arise that would probably not bode well for fall sports. Like everyone I’m ready for sports to return it’s been such a big part of my life and I’m sure many of yours as well. Until that day I’ll just keep dreaming and repeating to myself GO HUSKIES!!
