If any of you remember my disastrous move last September when the movers set the place on fire as I was moving in, I'm glad to report that today, after five months, the flooring company arrived to begin tearing out the hardwood floors and replacing them.
I've been living there with only about 20% of my possessions since October. I thought they'd be done about 3 weeks after I moved back in, so I just brought essentials, thinking it would be a slight inconvenience compared to the hassle of moving everything out again when they started on the floors.
The floors will take a week to ten days to finish, so I have checked into an almost brand-new hotel nearby. (I'm waiting in the lobby for my room to be ready.)
I suspect my blogging will be light this week, but you never know. This is an open thread, all topics welcome. So are donations, if anyone hasn't contributed in a while!

There's another GOP Debate tonight. I'm not wtching.
The Super Bowl is tomorrow and probably won't watch that either but that's cuz I'm really work busy. I'm a big Cam fan so pulling for anthers.

No, I'm not watching the TV show about O.J.
Or following the campaigns in New Hampshire -- everyone should just declare themselves a moral victor and move on to states with more significance to the race as a whole.

What I'm watching: The X Games in Aspen (here's today's updated schedule) and next the Screen Actor's Guild Awards (Red carpet airing now on E.)
I've gone days without blogging. The biggest reason is both the mouse and the track pad on my laptop are on the fritz. They alternate between not doing anything and all of a sudden moving to a different page. The hard drive is just about full, making it very slow. (And there's nothing I feel like moving to an external drive.) [More....]

Busy day. I'll write a little bit on Iowa and EGhazi (same story, different day) tomorrow.

The three hour Eagles "rockumentary" on Showtime just began airing. It's the History of the Eagles, as told by the Eagles. It starts with the early years of Henley in Texas and Frey in Detroit, with lots of guest appearances. There are also some great performances.
Random question: Does anyone remember the version of Hotel California in concert with Henley and many men wearing turban style hats playing drums (see update below, it was trombones not drums) -- to me it had a decidedly African beat. I think I saw the live performance many many years ago, and had it on my computer, but can't find it now. I can't even remember whether it was the whole band or a Henley solo concert. [Added: it was Henley's solo Inside Job Tour at Red Rocks in July,2000.)

Here's tomorrow's open thread, a few hours early. Thank you, Showtime. I just re-watched the last hour of the 2013 History of the Eagles documentary. It's over three hours long, and will re-air in full on Saturday, 4pm Mountain Time.
It's gradually dawning on me I will never again see this band perform. Such a loss. From Denver to Aspen to Red Rocks and Boulder's Folsom Field, I got to see them so many times. I've watched hundreds of videos of shows I didn't see in person -- and I've saved dozens on my various computers. It's never enough.
Personally, I could care less about politics right now -- but this is an open thread, all topics welcome. [More...]

This is an open thread, all topics (TV-related or not) welcome.
How much TV can I watch in one night? There's the Democratic debate and Sean Penn on 60 Minutes. There's the Good Wife, Downton Abbey, Shameless and the Royals. I even like Guys' Grocery's Games (I don't like Worst Cook in America.)
Two shows I tried to like and really didn't, so I won't be watching any more: Ruta 35 on Unimas and the most awful, gratuitously violent novela I've ever seen that just started last week on Telemundo. Called La Querida del Centauro, it seems to be a thinly veiled take on the prison romance between El Chapo and Zulema Hernandez. Sony generally does not make good novelas. The only passable one was En la Boca Del Lobo. I think novela-land will be barren until the return of Senor de los Cielos (season 4) in April. (La Viuda Negra Part 2 may start before then, but it's just okay.) The best, if you speak Spanish is El Capo (Seasons 1 and 2. Season 3 has English subtitles but isn't as good as the first two seasons.) Ranking up there with El Capo: El Cartel (Seasons I and II, not the movie); La Reina del Sur; Pablo Escobar Patron de Mal; and En La Boca del Lobo. [More...]
