Sunday Shuffle #355

I wasn't 100% sure I was going to continue the shuffle in 2015. I got burned out on it last year and went 4 1/2 months without doing one. When I did one at the end of September, I thought I might dip my toe in and out but ended up getting back into the swing. I'm enjoying the process again.

Another reason to keep this feature going is that my other long-standing Sunday morning tradition has come to an end. For well over a decade (and probably for at least 15 years) I watched The Sports Reporters on ESPN. This past week, however, we cut our cable and I no longer can watch. I will definitely miss that ritual, so it's going to be good to keep this one going, at least for a while. If I do stick with this throughout the year, I will reach #400 before the end of the year. Maybe that would be a good stopping point. We'll see.

All of that leads me to this: here are today's ten...

1. 30 Gallon Tank/Spoon (13) - last played on 10/12
2. Daphnia/Yo La Tengo (4) - last played on 12/9/12
3. Young Men Dead/The Black Angels (6) - last played on 6/2/13

10. Hostages/A.C. Newman (17) - last played on 4/13/14

While I was listening to these songs, word came via Twitter that longtime ESPN Sportscenter anchor Stuart Scott passed away. He's been fighting cancer for years. He was one of my favorites and will be missed. Rest in peace, Stu.

Sunday Shuffle #413

Summer is here and I'm happy that it is. Jill finished school this week, but Grant and I have to go through Friday. I have the week off from my TTT course, so I'm going to catch up on some reading and TV. There was baseball I could watch yesterday and I can watch some again today, so you can bet I'll be doing that. Few things bring me joy more than baseball and a book in my lap for between innings.

Here's today's ten...
