In my experience, there are some people here who post like what Bluesky would call "woke scolds." But guess what, Bluesky dummies: on Spoutible you just don't follow those people and that's that. No algorithm will keep pushing them at you.
Tom G. Hughes @Tom_G_Hughes
Sorry, but I'm not a woke scold*. Generally not my style, for better or worse.

But I recognize that a well-behaved forum needs its woke scolds from time to time.

*Bluesky said we're a buncha woke scolds at Spoutible.

With Sandra Day O'Connor's death, I'm reminded that when she graduated high up in her Stanford law school class in 1951, her sex meant she couldn't find a paying law job. I always admired her perseverance, but couldn't forget her responsibility in crafting the deeply corrupt Bush v Gore opinion.

I love #SpoutingClassics for introducing me to new music and reminding me of songs I enjoyed from the past. But my personal name for Spouting Classics is Earworm Factory. Luckily, each earworm tends to be replaced within a day, thanks to shiny new posts.

In a world where black-and-white thinking dominates, Dartmouth sponsors public discussions about the situation in Israel and Gaza, led by professors, that explore the complex history and issues behind the events.

Right Ho, Jeeves is my favorite Wodehouse because of the telegrams between Bertie and Aunt Dahlia. One of hers: 鈥淒eeply regret Brinkley Court hundred miles from London, as unable hit you with a brick.鈥
Leigh Turner @rleighturner
Why 鈥淔ull Moon鈥 by PG Wodehouse is my favourite Blanding Castle comedy. With 18 fab quotations.

I love that when the NFL plays a game in Germany, the stadium always plays Country Roads. Usually they play it once during the game and, unlike in the US, they don't stop when a play begins. Then they play it again at the end, with all staying and singing along. Who knew Germans love John Denver?

I love #SpoutingClassics . Thanks for the beautiful, goofy, hard-rocking, soulful tunes. Is it too early to put in a request for themed music for Super Bowl Sunday (February 11, 2024)? This would obviously not fit the usual Sunday Laid Back Tracks!

Note: During the U.S. holidays, we'll keep the music going!

While many enjoy family & friends, some of you might be alone. If you are, spend some time with us.

We may have limited staff at this time, but we'll be here for you, to enjoy the music or just chat.

I bet many people asked themselves the same thing in 1930s Germany. I've known people who were sure they would've hidden Jews during WW2, but I doubt they really thought about the pressure to conform and how much easier it is to just keep your head down. We can only hope for the strength to resist.
Tom G. Hughes @Tom_G_Hughes
I have political opinions, and I've certainly shared them here. But right now I'm questioning my credibility as a political warrior, wondering (as I have before) how much Good German is in me, how much I will buckle if things get Putin-like repressive.

US Rep.Jared Golden (D-ME) had opposed an assault weapons ban, but at today's 6pm press conference on the Lewiston shootings, he apologized for his prior stance and said he would work with anybody to ban assault weapons. Susan Collins (surprise!) dodged the issue.

I saw Sanchez perform this on the Colbert show and downloaded it immediately, then called my brother-in-law because it seemed like exactly the kind of music he loved from back when he kept every weekly WLS Silver Dollar Survey music list in the 1960s and 70s.

I came upon this song and it is such a unique sound. This song was released as a single on 1 September 2021, but the sound is like something I heard as a kid. This is more of the 鈥渁ndup鈥 part of the #80sandup 馃槂馃槈 #spoutingclassics

Fantastic! I live down Route 1 about 20 minutes, but my husband and I spend a lot of time in Damariscotta, including King Eider's. I hope you can come back to Maine soon. I lived "away" for years and am so glad to be back.

Happy Fri-yay!!
I took this off of the King Eider鈥檚 Pub page on FB. It is located in my home state of Maine in Damariscotta. I gotta get back to my home state more often. To visit places like this.

The ex-officer claims she didn't know the police car was on train tracks. (A different officer's car, and it was night.) Is this still an outrage if her claims are true? The victim doesn't seem to contest the officer's claim. I just don't know about this one without more info.

Just to follow up, I was able to watch the game with the Twitch app on my computer, but it wouldn't work on my TV. I got the app on the TV, but whenever I tried to watch the game there, I just got a "content not available" message.
M Kaz @MKaz
I found this article on a workaround for that issue: https://mediapeanut.com/tw... I hope it's useful. The other not-great alternative would be to watch on a smartphone or tablet after downloading the Twitch app.

I read that the Thursday night games livestreams for free on the Twitch app. You can download the app onto a smart TV, a computer, cellphone, tablet. Downside--I think--is that it's only livestream, no saving for watching later. I've downloaded the app and I'm going to test this tonight.

Patriots. Based on where I've before, I'm also a fan of the Bears (lived in Chicago 14 years in the 70s and 80s) and 49ers (lived in SF 18 years from the 80s to early 2000s). Back to my Maine home in perfect time for the Brady era. Now hoping Mac Jones regains some mojo and the team gels.

On August 4. 1944, 15-year-old Anne Frank and her family were captured in Amsterdam by the Nazi Gestapo. She died in a concentration camp a short time later. We must #NeverForget the horrors of the Holocaust.

In the last week, when I try to watch a video embedded here on Spoutible or on another site (WaPo, e.g.), if the video originated from Twitter/X, the video won't play. I see the still, but when I press play, nothing happens. Is this part of Elon's trying to force us all onto X?

That new David Grann book, The Wager, looks good. I thought. Geena Davis's memoir, Dying of Politeness was fun on audio. Also rec: Susan Orlean's The Library Book, and Lawrence Wright's Going Clear: Scientology, Hollywood, and the Prison of Belief.
Andrea Grimes @andreagrimes
Audiobook friends!!!

I am road-tripping this week and looking for compelling nonfiction listens, along the lines of Dead Mountain (the Dyatlov Pass book)/David Grann/Mary Roach. Please, *NO* true crime, not even the exception you're thinking of.

Please comment/respout with your recs!

Actually, yes I have been following your story. They previously said they wanted your help and that they took care of you all your life and now it's your turn. But now you say they don't actually need your help, and that sounds like good news to me, as in you can stay put without guilt.
John Bolton's Mustache鉁咃笍 @John_Boltons_Mustache
You obviously haven't been following my story. They don't care that they're uprooting my life of 25 years where I currently live. They told me IN AN EMAIL that they wanted me to help them. They didn't even have the courtesy of discussing it with me while I was visiting them.

But isn't that actually good news? A call for help from a parent is one thing, but a "just because we want it" can be denied, can't it?

If I were a superhero, my name would be Super Pissed.

Why? Because I was today years old when I found out my parents don't want me down there (in Florida) to help them, they just want me down there.
