Let's say Goodbye to eyo, and express all our love and respect, shall we?

Eyo, a site member stricken with Multiple Myeloma passed away on Tuesday evening, June 4, 2024.

I received the following email Monday before her last day:

"I am a friend of Liz Young’s. She wanted me to tell you when she has died. She is very close. She sends her very very best regards to “everyone @ C99”.

She told me how supportive so many at C99 had been to her when she was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma.

She is actively dying now and I imagine she will pass away today/tomorrow.

In solidarity~


Album of the Week 6-15-24

Afternoon folks!

This week we've got 3 blues albums, 2 Chicago style albums from Fenton Robinson and Mighty Joe Young and one traditional blues album from Arthur Crudup. After that there are albums from Procol Harum and John Mayall's Bluesbreakers (a late 80's version of the Bluesbreakers) - and then you can chill out with an album from Leon Redbone (ably assisted by Dr. John and David Bromberg). Finishing off in the diversity department there's an album of early prog rock from The Nice.

Enjoy the tunes and have a great weekend!

Saturday Open Thread 6/15/24: Odds and Ends

Good morning! I hope everyone is having a good start on a great weekend! Don't know about you, but my work week was very busy, and I worked into the evening a couple of times. Oh, well, it cut into my critter sightings, except for the deer family of 3 that comes up in my back pasture every evening at dusk to graze. The fawn is big now.

My affinity for deer and rabbits traces back to my very early childhood, thanks Mr. Disney. (As I sort of bitched about missing my critters, a rabbit just ran acroos the front yard!)

Friday Night Photos Nifty Fifty Edition

Happy Friday everyone. I hope everybody is doing well. Post any photos, memes, or music you like.

I've been without internet for the last day and a half. I wasn't sure if I would get it back in time to post tonight's FNP. Thankfully I resolved the problem and I'm back online. Being without the internet these days is like being stranded on a desert island.
