Good morning! Today is the last day I share albums each morning. And it shouldn't surprise anyone that I'm ending with The Weakerthans' final album, the live recording of their final concert.

The Weakerthans, and John K Samson, mean a lot to me. Their songs helped me when I was in a bad place, and learning to play those songs helped me leave. Their final album is band at its peak - favourite song is Wellington's Wednesdays, and let me tell you why...

Remember when Colm Meaney showed up in Stargate: Atlantis as a bad guy? So good.

They brought him onto DS9 originally because the producers thought he was too good an actor to leave in TNG’s transporter room.

@ashfurrow You've been chaining these replies since January 1st, goddamn. It's lagging my browser a little.

@ashfurrow @Gargron I told you not to restart the chain in the new year. :^)

@ashfurrow bah, those aren't bad.
the obsession dial needs to be turned up just a little more. I had a housemate who would re-do the cable management (even though nothing had changed) every 2 months or so. they were trying to improve matters. (which were already very good.)

I finally worked with people who were so obsessive, uh, honestly it would sound like I was making things up. it was crazypants. the more you want to hide or make your cables perfect, the more expensive it gets. $0.005

@gboyd42 but then that wouldn’t be *flips hair back dramatically* la photographie verité

@ashfurrow True, but it's not as if you're reducing the cat by two dress sizes. Or layering a Picasso onto your wall. Or even (and this is my personal favourite) 'vacuuming' the carpet in post production.

@ashfurrow You can't argue with how good the gamepad was. A nice large controller with nearly limitless possibilities from the touch screen.

It was more perfect, but it's a much better feature than the Switch.

@ashfurrow It might have the Gameboy player and the ASCII pad, butt the link cable isn't the same thing.

@ashfurrow oh I didn't know he was on SG: Atlantis! Neat, I like him. :)

(Atlantis didn't grab me as much as the original SG-1 but SG: Universe blew my frickin mind!)

@ashfurrow I've heard that's actually pretty good. Sour cream & onion.

@ashfurrow This is why you shouldn't throw your controller when you get mad, you should honour the sweet doggo that died to produce your controller and treat it with respect.
