The Monday Setlist for Jan 30, 2023
Where will you be on April 8th, 2024?
I’ll be at the County Courthouse this morning, but not for county business. I’m serving jury duty for the 3rd time in my life. If you have been called up, I guess I’ll see you there. If not, I hope my Monday Setlist helps kickstart your week.
🕶️ What I’m Looking Forward To
Mark your calendars for April 8th, 2024. That’s when the next total solar eclipse takes place in North America. My family and I travelled to Dillard, GA for the last one and it was the most surreal thing I’ve ever experienced.
I’m not sure where I’ll go to take in the experience. Texas was my initial choice. But the totality passes over both Buffalo, NY and Vermilion, OH. Duff’s Famous Wings and a chance to see the Niagra Falls again is enticing. But my favorite restaurant is Chez Francois in Vermilion. Decisions, decisions…
Pro Tip: Make reservations as far in advance as you can. Don’t travel home until the day following the eclipse.
🎶 What I’m Listening To
Never considered myself a big Taylor Swift fan. But I’ve enjoyed “exile” (feat. Bon Iver). Also, I randomly pulled up Shawn Mullins on Apple Music a few days ago. You’ll remember him from his 1998 hit “Lullaby”. But if you want a hidden gem, pull up “Beautiful Wreck” instead.

📺 What I’m Watching
My wife and I have really enjoyed watching Netflix’s Kaleidoscope. If you’ve not heard of it, it is a series that can be watched in any order. Each episode is labelled using a color instead of a number. And your viewing experience is different depending upon the order in which you watch.
But probably our favorite show at the moment is the new HBO series, The Last of Us. It is of the post-Zombie Apocalypse genre. The third episode dropped yesterday and I’ve not had time to watch it. But we were hooked after the first one and HBO has already announced there would be a season 2.
