I remember once wondering why in an interview he had the Cleveland skyline in the background then heard him saying Ohio being his adopted home state a few days ago talking about a Trump rally in Toledo.  

 

I found Erica Michelle Levy is his wife From Shaker Heights. Don't know anything about her but that she is much younger than him.

I've run into him multiple times in that little Starbucks in the plaza at Rockside Rd/Brecksville Rd.    Not sure what he does down that way.   Have never talked to him, other than a friendly "hello".

WTAM 1100 is on Rockside. His radio show is there.

If you have a few minutes to kill, this is interesting.   While I find it amazing that creatures can live thousands of meters under the ocean surface, I find it even more interesting the ones that are at the surface and choose to dive to those depths!

Do any zoning people out there know anything about the legality of renting out basement spaces for commercial purposes?  Does it require two points of egress if it's a straight-ahead walkout?  Specifically, I am interested in carving up the basement of this place into band rehearsal spaces.

The building code requires a second exit when either the occupant load is over 49 people or the travel distance to get out exceeds 75'.  the occupant load is approximately figured at one person per 100 SF.   Changing the use of the space or adding partitions would require a permit and a drawing by an architect/engineer.

Thanks.  The basement is approx 80 feet from the sidewalk back to the door.  So maybe the front 10~ feet would have to be blocked off, especially if they put the compass needle right on the door itself, which I assume that they do.

Why are young people suddenly calling everything they like "the GOAT"? The term has been on Urban Dictionary for nearly 20 years but in the past few months I have heard/seen people using it constantly.

I think you mean young white people.  Young black folks have been saying that for a lot longer.

Yes, I should have been more clear. I have seen tons of young white hipsters using it all of a sudden. And Jeopardy! just used it for their "Greatest of All Time" tournament so I guess it has now lost any remaining cool factor.

I haven't noticed any uptick in its usage. I've been hearing this regularly since I was in college at least and I'm in my 30s.

I got out of work early so my daughter took the bus from VCA to her old school in Sagamore Hills, and I picked her up there.

 

I got there early enough for the pickup line to be in full effect.    You SUV haters would have been horrified.   😆

Came across this roap map generating website today via Jalopnik.  Figured there would be some interest on this forum.

You can do more than just cities if your viewing device is powerful enough.  I've been able to do the whole state and several counties.  You can even download vector files of what you map.

I stumbled across the Rolling Stones' 2020 US tour details and there's something very strange about the list.  Here it is:

 

May 8: San Diego, SDCCU Stadium 

May 12: Vancouver, BC, BC Place

May 16: Minneapolis, U.S. Bank Stadium 

May 20: Nashville, Nissan Stadium 

May 24: Austin, Circuit of The Americas

May 29: Dallas, Cotton Bowl Stadium

June 6: Buffalo, New Era Field 

June 10: Detroit, Ford Field 

June 14: Louisville, Cardinal Stadium 

June 19: Cleveland, FirstEnergy Stadium 

June 23: Pittsburgh, Heinz Field

June 27: St. Louis, The Dome at America’s Center 

July 1: Charlotte, Bank of America Stadium 

July 5: Tampa, Raymond James Stadium 

July 9: Atlanta, Mercedes-Benz Stadium

 

(https://www.usatoday.com/story/entertainment/music/2020/02/06/rolling-stones-2020-no-filter-tour-dates/4676860002/)

 

Only two cities western cities San Diego and Vancouver (plus texas)---no LA, SF, Denver--and then no Toronto, NYC, Washington, Philly, Miami, Boston. Anyone know why this is?

^thanks.....so this is the 2nd tier cities tour, I see....CLE, Buffalo, Pittsburgh, Atlanta.....   Looking at the 2019 lIst, https://www.rollingstone.com/music/music-news/rolling-stones-rescheduled-dates-no-filter-tour-836010/, two nights in Jersey, but no NYC. Is that typical of big rock bands to not play in New York? Die hard fans will of course travel, but many others wouldn't leave NY for NJ unless they really had to.

It's the opposite of the "Donut Tour". Donut Tours hit the coasts, maybe Chicago or Detroit, Toronto or Montreal and somewhere in Texas. They're popular with bands that want to play the U.S. but maximize their earnings potential by avoiding cities that may or may not draw a lot of fans. The Stones, on the other hand, don't have to worry about people not showing up.

There are no football stadiums in NY proper.   Also, this is sort of the second loop through the country on this tour, so I'm sure the promoter was directed to get the best deals possible in smaller markets and maximize their take.

Right. If the teams that play at the stadium (Jets and Giants) can both claim NYC as their city, then I think it's safe to consider the concerts there the NYC shows on the tour.

True, but Yankee Stadium holds 54,000

Not for a concert.   It is closer to 30,000 since you are eliminating all the outfield seating.    Football stadiums have greater capacity for concerts because the endzone is generally a shorter wall and there is no infield to worry about.

Edit for my original comment:  Buffalo Bills fans would ardently disagree with this, as THE ONLY NFL team that plays in New York.  😜
