Even though I posted differently on FB and IG, I will take a win-win for both Steven and I.

Nice repair job. Also, I remember the better quality cassettes were put together with screws.

I think I got this week's right, thanks to your added hint.

FYI, Feedly took almost a day to update from my RSS feed on my blog. Perhaps it was related to me not blogging for sometime.

You are spot on with the DS comparison for the Switch Lite. I have a 3DS XL that I started playing more often these last couple of months and then saw the Switch Lite, which triggered a bit of interest. Appreciate the chew on thoughts.

Good to know.

I've not met a Switch Lite owner yet, either.

Yay. I got the right answer first. As for a guess for this week, I'm stumped. I was thinking an album by Flaming Lips, but nothing with those colors stands out as obvious.

That makes sense. I have a few friends that love their full size Switch.

My wife is allergic to walnuts and cashews. She likes almond milk, so this recipe is a good match.

So much agreement with Eddie Murphy's return to SNL. The skits were great and I laughed hard through most of them.

I've been tempted by the Switch (lately the Switch Lite). I've not console gamed since I mostly retired my PS3 late last year.

I need to try this. It certainly will beat the Keurig hot cocoa pods we have here.

Spoiler free this post is, yes. (my best Yoda impersonation). I think I might be the only one that didn't really have any issues with The Last Jedi. But I will admit I like Rise of Skywalker better. And I agree that in his third and last Star Wars movie Adam Driver's performance is the best.

We share 3 albums on our 2019 lists (I just posted mine a few minutes ago) and one we share as the top album of the year. I love it.

I do still have a player. It's a portable one that takes AA batteries. I used to have a MD deck that was part of my stereo system years ago. I still have all of the retail MDs as well as all of my dubbed MDs. I need to put together a blog post for what I have MD. I loved that format.

Gotcha. I still have a lot of retail MDs so wasn't sure if you had an original or dubbed (which I dubbed a lot to MD as well).

I liked that you owned this album on Minidisc. 30 years is a great milestone for a great debut album. The story of how PHM was made is great and took Trent into another realm of creating some great music over the years. This album holds up well here. BTW, awesome that Kevin Spencer saw the band on the PHM tour. Having seen NIN a few times over the years, I can attest that it's one of the best concert experiences.

It's easily been more than 20 years since I last watched WarGames. I might have to find it on one of the streaming platforms and see how well it holds up.

If you haven't already purchased it, then here's my GO GET IT nudge. I'm not a scotch drinker (I know, shocked - it's the bourbon love for me), but I enjoy a dram here and there. But that Offerman Edition sounds like a winner.
