Pearl Jam is an American treasure, and we must protect them with our lives. Cobain, Weiland, Cornell, Hoon, Staley, all gone. Never again will there be a show from Nirvana, Stone Temple Pilots, Soundgarden, Blind Melon or Alice in Chains. Therefore, every chance we get to see Pearl Jam we have to take it…

Couldn’t believe they busted out “Le Freak” right out of the gate (not to mention Rapper’s Delight at the end). Oh, and the David Bowie 💜

Thanks to Apple Music, I’ve been listening to every Neil Diamond album in order, starting in 1966 through the end of the 80s. Quote a career…

Guessing this channel has a ton of great things I’ve never seen. For example, these Talking Heads clips from 2002:

We must develop earlier in life an avocation, to maintain our interest in life. Such outside lines of thought and diversion are the more successful when they bring us in contact with nature, birds, gardens, geology, and the like.

Golf Digest Top 200

Posted June 15, 2023

As I’ve been watching the U.S. Open today at Los Angeles Country Club, it reminded me of the latest Golf Digest rankings that I linked to recently. LACC’s North course is ranked #16 and hasn’t really been seen by many people until this week. Turns out it was just a few blocks away from my last visit to L.A. and I didn’t even know it.

Going back to the rankings (Top 100 and Next 100), I went through again and found the ones I’ve played:

  • #84 Interlachen (pictured)
  • #96 Pasatiempo
  • #127 Streamsong Red
  • #138 Hazeltine
  • #148 Atlanta Athletic Club Highlands
  • #151 Streamsong Blue

Six out of 200 isn’t a very good ratio, but I don’t really see it changing much anytime soon. Cypress Point Club (#3) is my biggest dream course, but Southern Highlands (#161) and Streamsong Black (#178) probably have the highest likelihood of happening. Oh, would still like to hit Shadow Creek (#27) too…
