I could get into tile. I think it's probably pretty underappreciated by music nerd hipsters like us. But could you imagine being on the cutting edge of tile design? Could be a good gig with room to grow.

"I have managed over 100 stores from New York to California. Getting tired of being told I made too much money, I opened Westside Tile and Stone in 2005."

Still got that Slutzah sass. I bet the hospitality suite at national tile shows is a place to be.

WAIT, did jack white produce the whole Lemonade album??? i had no idea. and he SINGS on it? ewwwwwwww...............

also, does Beyonce have the worst rock tastes on earth??? was glancing at some rolling stone thing that the raggett posted on FB and beyonce's rock connections a long list of stuff to avoid like the plague: coldplay, eddie vedder, animal collective, jack white.....yuuuuuuuuuuuuuuk.

scott seward, Tuesday, 26 April 2016 17:03 (three years ago) link

now i really never want to hear this album...

scott seward, Tuesday, 26 April 2016 17:04 (three years ago) link

Jack White is only on the one song (and it's good -- sounds like Kelis).

"And Through the Looking Glass is at least good fun."

this seriously might be the only rock covers album that i love.

scott seward, Tuesday, 26 April 2016 17:08 (three years ago) link

new rule: every new album can only have 1 article written about it. doesn't matter if it's by Lefsetz.

i feel like we alternate b/w reminiscing affectionately about monoculture and cursing it for still existing.

y'all, here's the real secret ingredient for some dope lemonade: lavender.

Salt! I will live and die by salty lemonade.

do you guys have any tips on getting information?

so there's this kid -- maybe 10 or 11? -- who has been setting up a lemonade stand directly in front of our house regularly, and it kind of irks me. shouldn't she be doing it in front of her own house? what if my kid wanted to have a lemonade stand? that would be awkward. it's kind of a "hot" corner in the neighborhood, so she's totally cleaning up. should i demand a cut of her earnings?

I'm surprised by this. I don't think I've ever seen a neighbourhood lemonade stand. My sister and I tried to set one up when we were kids because we saw them in comics and cartoons. We sold absolutely nothing (and, no, we weren't selling the salty stuff). I figured it was because lemonade can be bought or made so cheaply and have always looked back on this as my first real lesson in economics. But apparently, more enterprising children are actually succeeding with this model these days??

Hi! I'm twice-coloured! (Sund4r), Tuesday, 26 April 2016 17:34 (three years ago) link

I've seen small lemonade stands in my current neighborhood. Never ever saw anyone trying to run one when I was growing up.

how's life, Tuesday, 26 April 2016 17:44 (three years ago) link

i feel like they only exist in upper-middle class neighborhoods as a quaint attempt to teach kids about the value of hard work that they will not have to do irl.

the true lil hustlers are out selling sealed m&ms for fictional sports teams.

dc, Tuesday, 26 April 2016 17:52 (three years ago) link

We are pretty much lower-to-middle middle class.

i love how the temptation to listen to that Beyonce/Jack White song is remedied by the title: DON'T HURT YOURSELF.

scott seward, Tuesday, 26 April 2016 17:57 (three years ago) link

STILL TEMPTED THOUGH. in a masochistic way....

scott seward, Tuesday, 26 April 2016 17:57 (three years ago) link

just do it, scott. it's pretty good!

(totally over-generalized and projected my own class anxieties onto the lemonade stand thing; been doing that SO MUCH lately.)

i didn't even know that janet put out an album last year. that is so sad! black rock pioneer janet jackson! sorry, JJ...

culture shock upon moving to canada from Scotland: lemonade here is not carbonated

-_- (jim in glasgow), Tuesday, 26 April 2016 18:09 (three years ago) link

I had no idea a half lemonade/half iced tea was called an Arnold Palmer until this year. Honest Tea makes that and it's really, really good

Just picked some up to have with lunch, inspired by this thread.

Hi! I'm twice-coloured! (Sund4r), Tuesday, 26 April 2016 18:10 (three years ago) link

Lemonade is carbonated in the UK? So every lemonade is basically lemony Sprite?

Hi! I'm twice-coloured! (Sund4r), Tuesday, 26 April 2016 18:10 (three years ago) link

scott, the Janet album is excellent.

i wanna hear it. i love janet.

is everyone's favorite "rock" song by a huge non-rock pop star "black cat"?

i'd like a show of hands.

scott seward, Tuesday, 26 April 2016 18:16 (three years ago) link

michael had some ragers obviously.

Is Prince non-rock?

Hi! I'm twice-coloured! (Sund4r), Tuesday, 26 April 2016 18:18 (three years ago) link

I mean, I consider him rock but people seemed to think I was crazy when I argued that before.

Is this shandy thing any good? What beer would you use for that? A citrus-y wheat beer? A mild lager?

"Black Cat" is up there, but mine is probably something by Pink. Her third album was mostly co-written by the main dude from Rancid.

Oh man, Pink's rock stuff really rubs me the wrong way.

Hi! I'm twice-coloured! (Sund4r), Tuesday, 26 April 2016 18:25 (three years ago) link

"So What" = most grating song of that year

prince made way too much rock to be called a non-rocker. he was definitely a rock star. and a pop star. and the king of r&b.

i always had a soft spot for the rocking tracks on pop records. the more Slash-like guitar solos the better. cuz i'm a rock fan....

what's the most rock madonna song?

i might like "free your mind" as much as "black cat".

Any street drink I've bought has been kids pouring from a 5-gallon jug of Kirkland lemonade into a Dixie thimble.

yes.

shandy is good, refreshing, use as cheap a lager as you like, cheaper the better really. also nice is a lager tops, essentially a shandy but with only a small amount of lemonade on the top, very high beer to lemonade ratio.

-_- (jim in glasgow), Tuesday, 26 April 2016 18:37 (three years ago) link

Is a radler different from a shandy or is it just rebranding?

On a Raqqa tip (ShariVari), Tuesday, 26 April 2016 18:40 (three years ago) link

as far as tart and beer goes i mostly get that from the excellent sour red belgians on the market. god i love that stuff. americans can have ALL the headbusting IPAs they want. just lemme have my belgians and germans. a lemon wedge in a nice german wheat beer is a fine way to say hello to summer. (you can quote me on that)

scott seward, Tuesday, 26 April 2016 18:45 (three years ago) link

xp. radler is like a half and half sparkling lemonade and lager iirc. whereas shandy, if you order it in a british pub, would probably have more beer than lemonade - though i don't think there is an established ratio.

-_- (jim in glasgow), Tuesday, 26 April 2016 18:52 (three years ago) link

wow, that "gon' b alright" song from janet's 2015 album is some serious late 80's/early 90's retrodelica. like instead of jack white she got the soup dragons or primal scream to write a song with her.

scott seward, Tuesday, 26 April 2016 18:53 (three years ago) link

a local brewery around here makes an orange shandy that hits the spot
