  1. I've said it before and I will say it again: I love HYF. The mixing is what it is but the softness feels very comforting to me. HYF in it's entirety puts me in a creative mood. Most songs are energetic and beautiful, and the bass lines are delicious. Tai Shan has a different feel to it than the previous songs on the album but usually I listen to it as well.
  2. Yet another graphic novel. The Twilight Man : Rod Serling and the Birth of Television by Koren Shadmi. This one's very easy to recommend! https://www.humanoids.com/y_catalog/book?id=918
  3. Mooncakes by Wendy Xu and Suzanne Walker. A graphic novel that gives a warm and cozy feeling. https://www.simonandschuster.com/books/Mooncakes/Suzanne-Walker/9781549303043
  4. Signals is one of the top 2 Rush albums for me. It's excellent. By the way, I'd like to see a Dalmatian emoji on TRF.
  5. Earl Palmer is #1. Clyde Stubblefield, Ziggy Modeliste, Bonzo, Art Blakey, Jo Jones, just to name a few others I like. There are a lot of great drummers out there like Abe Laboriel Jr. and Stanley Randolph as well.
  6. Thank you for sharing these memories. Here on the other side of the great Atlantic Ocean these natural disasters were watched in TV news, and I can only imagine how terrifying these hurricanes were.
  7. Recently, I've given both CA and VT a new try. They're both clearly better than I remembered. One of the problems in them is that many songs that start catchy fade into weaker melody lines as the song continue. That's not so much the case with S&A or CP (that are easily in my top 10), the melodies are more solid in them in general. Both CA and VT are the first Rush albums that I tested when doing a workout at the gym. A lot of energy but nothing that would distract me for a longer while, works fine! I prefer CA so far, though. (Both CP and S&A would make me lose focus, I love them.)
  8. Happy, happy Birthday, PJ Bear! Many happy returns!
  9. Since reading The Notebook I read two other Nicholas Sparks novels (Message in a Bottle and Nights in Rodanthe), and I'm currently reading The Rescue. What can be said about these books? The storylines and many details are overtly calculated, and there are themes and surroundings that keep coming up from novel to novel (not in good or bad). North Carolina, losing someone, surviving as a single parent, being surprised by love, insecurities, storms, seaside, sex. Working part time in a library. The beauty of nature. Sparks is good at observing human gestures and body language and describing everyday life and worries. He knows how to write an entertaining story that's easy to relax with. Nothing larger than life, but writing a romantic novel that will not completely bore the reader to death is a skill. (While I was reading these books I did some Google searches on the different places that the stories locate in. Rodanthe and the Outer Banks area in NC seem very beautiful. I love seashores, so these surroundings are a real plus to me. Travelling through stories is nice.)
