For The Record- 28. October. 2023
I'm taking the side streets and I'm cruising down the alleyways
Welcome to another edition of For The Record, a good old-fashioned link drop and benefit for paid supporters of On Repeat. If you’re ready to become one, we’d be thrilled to have you!
As a reminder, On Repeat is 100% reader-funded. And as always, there are 7-day trials for anyone looking to test the waters.
This week, we’ve got news on The B52s, Britney Spears, Blink-182, and The Beatles
All that and a LOT more (including a buncha artists/bands that don’t start with B).
Let’s get to it!
Through a wild convergence of circumstances, I found myself in Niagara, Ontario, this past week.
My sons and I did many of the touristy things you would expect one to do while on the Canadian side of Niagara Falls. But we also got to spend a lot of time together, which is an all too rare experience these days. I know this is not exactly revelatory, but I am constantly fascinated by how fast time is screaming by, and nothing drives that home faster than hanging out with one’s teenage children.
This weekend, it manifested itself in strange ways: one of my kids offering to pay for a meal (yes, please!), the other offering to drive our rental car (ha!), but also the adult level of conversations that just a few short years ago seemed a lifetime away—and in a way they were. For something now so foreign, those days seem so familiar.
