Dopapod’s Rob Compa Fills In For A Wild Pink Talking Fish Show [Watch]

first_imgLast weekend, Pink Talking Fish played a private engagement at The Great Divide Campground that turned into a wild affair! With guitarist Dave Brunyak unable to make the show, Dopapod guitarist Rob Compa filled in on the lead instrument, jamming along on the Pink Floyd, Talking Heads and Phish classics with a passion.Compa was treated to quite the experience, as the show proved to be one of the band’s more wild performances. The owner of the campgroup placed a giant gorilla statue behind the band during “Crosseyed and Painless” in the second set, so naturally the band took the opportunity to get psychedelic with a version of Phish’s “Kung,” which naturally become “Kong” in honor of the statue. They also went into Pink Floyd’s obscure Ummagumma track “Several Species of Small Furry Animals Gathered Together in a Cave and Grooving with a Pict,” again referencing the giant gorilla. The band picked back up into “Crosseyed” and rocked hard for the remainder of the set.Check out some footage from the show, as provided by the band. Pink Talking Fish has a number of exciting plays coming up this summer, including some post-Phish after parties in Chicago and Saratoga, as well as some great cruises in the NYC area on July 8th. Check out all the information you’d need for any of these shows via the band’s website.The full setlist from NJ can be seen below.Setlist: Pink Talking Fish at The Great Divide Campground, Newton, NJ – 6/4/16Set 1:In The Flesh>Chalkdust TortureMaking Flippy Floppy>Simple>Time>Life During Wartime>Gumbo>Shine On You Crazy Diamond>Burning Down The HousePossumSet 2:When The Tigers Broke Free>Punch You In The Eye>Another Brick In The Wall>Psycho Killer>Another Brick In The Wall>Tweezer*>One Of These Days>Lengthwise>One Of These Days**>Swamp***%>2001***>Crosseyed And Painless>Kung%%>Several Species of Small Furry Animals Gathered Together in a Cave and Grooving with a Pict>Crosseyed And Painless%%%>Eclipse>Tweezer Reprise%%%*w/ Life During Wartime tease**w/ Money For Nothing “I Want My MTV” lyrics and drum fills preceding “One Of These Days I’m Going To Cut You Into Little Pieces”***w/ Close Encounters Of The Third Kind tease%w/ Manteca tease%%a giant gorilla got placed behind the stage and Kung became “Kong”%%%”Monkey In The Back” and “Kung/Kong” lyricslast_img read more

Reward Yourself with a Bath County Adventure

first_imgAfter you have cleaned off the dirt and sweat from a full day of adventure, it’s time for the reward we mentioned earlier. Start with a cold craft beer. Bacova Beer in Hot Springs is a favorite gathering spot for locals and visitors. If beer is not for you, check out Bath County’s new winery, Rock Roadhouse Winery, or the county’s very own cidery, Troddenvale at Oakley Farm. Both offer tastings by appointment. A day of adventure on the trails, lakes and rivers will certainly build up a healthy appetite. It’s time to refuel for tomorrow’s activities. Fantastic food is as much a part of the Bath County experience as the scenic views. Dining options range from pizza, sandwiches and country style, all the way to gourmet. The vibrant agricultural community gives creative chefs the opportunity to offer exquisite farm-to-table dishes. All around the county, several unique restaurants are developing a loyal following that is making Bath County a hot destination for foodies. Two lakes, two rivers and a variety of smaller streams around the county provide opportunities for paddling, boating and world-class fishing. The shoreline of Lake Moomaw is mostly undeveloped, which means miles of beautiful scenery and quiet coves in which to cast a fishing line. Sailboats, jet skis and motorized boats are allowed on Lake Moomaw. Meanwhile, Douthat Lake within the state park is smaller so motorized boats are not allowed, but canoes and kayaks can paddle out for fishing or exploring. Anglers leave Bath County with more than fish — they take home plenty of tales to tell all their friends back home. If you really want to elevate your fishing experience, consider a day with a professional guide who can take you to where the big fish are biting. If you have always wanted to learn to fly fish, this is your chance. If your idea of the perfect outdoor adventure-themed getaway includes a variety activities during the day followed by a well-earned reward, you have got to experience Bath County, Virginia.center_img You might visit Bath County for the great outdoor recreation and fall in love with the food. Then again, you may choose Bath County for its awesome restaurants and fill your days with outdoor fun. Either way, we won’t judge you. All are welcome for the full “Made in Bath County Experience.” Over 85% of the county is forested. A full 51% is National Forest with another 6% State Park. That means lots of room for fun and adventure. Douthat State Park alone has 43 miles of trails for hiking and mountain biking. More trails can be found around Lake Moomaw, at Hidden Valley Recreation Area, and elsewhere around the county. There are challenging trails and family-friendly trails. There are trails that offer payoffs like waterfalls, scenic vistas or wildlife viewing. You can hike or ride all day long, then get up and do it all over again the next day. last_img read more

Long Island’s Economic Stagnation Preventable, Study Says

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York Unless current trends are reversed soon, Long Island faces economic stagnation in the coming years that could prove irreversible.That’s the worst-case scenario presented by a new report released Tuesday by the Long Island Index, a project of the Rauch Foundation, a not-for-profit public interest group. Called “Long Island’s Future: Economic Implications of Today’s Choices,” the study predicted that job growth over the next two decades could be much slower than in the 1990s and 2000s and that could further accelerate the Island’s so-called brain drain. Since the 1990s, the proportion of 25- to 34-year-olds in the population has shrunken significantly, representing barely more than 10 percent of the Island’s population since 2010.Several interacting factors have combined to send the Island on the wrong track, the report says: the lack of affordable housing options, the failure to replace the well-paying jobs that evaporated when the defense and manufacturing industries closed their doors, and the ongoing high property-tax burden that makes Long Island’s economy less competitive compared to other areas of the country.Conducted by HR&A Advisors, an economic development consulting firm, with interactive maps created by the CUNY Graduate Center’s Mapping Service, the study illustrates how individual communities and the region have evolved over the last four decades to create the present situation that cries out for remedy, according to the Rauch Foundation and other advocates like the Long Island Regional Economic Development Council.But all is not gloom and doom, advocates say. Among the positive signs the report spotted is the Island’s relatively small but growing biomedical industry, which includes “such powerhouse resources” as Stony Brook University, Cold Spring Harbor and the Brookhaven National Laboratory, which just unveiled the new $912 million National Synchrotron Light Source II, which promises to generate the brightest X-ray beams in human history, illuminating a broad range of research that has yet to be seen, let alone imagined.“Long Island has extraordinary potential for economic growth, but it will require concerted effort around a specific strategy,” said Shuprotim Bhaumik, a partner at HR&A Advisors, in a press release. “This study is designed to highlight such a strategy, generate public discussion of it, and move Long Island toward a consensus on which it can build a dynamic future.”Developing more multifamily and affordable housing options in Long Island’s downtowns, say the report’s consultants, would “add a significant jolt” to the housing supply without imperiling the Island’s suburban character or depleting what’s left of our farmland and open space. Last year in a survey conducted by the Long Island Index, a majority of Long Islanders said they supported local, high-density residential opportunities in downtown areas. In 2010, the Long Island Index and the Regional Plan Association found 8,300 acres located within half a mile of LIRR stations that would ideally serve for further development.If these two priorities—expanding the biomedical industry and encouraging affordable housing—are pursued vigorously, the report says, then the results could be impressive by the year 2040: with almost 73,000 new jobs, 138,000 new residents, almost $12.6 billion in new income and between $9.5 billion and $15.1 billion in new gross regional product.The interactive maps that accompany the study are designed to enable the public to see at a glance how the Island’s economy, population, housing and other factors have changed since 1975.“Engaging Long Islanders in understanding what the past means for future growth is crucial to building consensus around Long Island’s economic future,” said Steven Romalewski, director of the CUNY Graduate Center’s Mapping Service.last_img read more

Thankful, encouraged, inspired, powerful, giddy, connected, honored and proud

first_img“I sit here, trying to put into words my experience with Next Top Credit Union Exec and the CEO/Executive Team Network conference,” wrote Shannon Cahoon, the winner of last year’s challenge, in a blog post shortly after the culminating event. “Even now, weeks after the final thank-yous and good-byes, I struggle to coherently explain how it makes me feel.”Community outreach coordinator at $1 billion Fibre Federal Credit Union, Longview, Wash., Cahoon goes on in the post to name eight key feelings she experienced: thankful, encouraged, inspired, powerful, giddy, connected, honored and proud.For eight years running, the CUES Next Top Credit Union Exec challenge has been making a positive difference in the professional lives of the young credit union professionals (non-CEOs, age 35 and under) who take it on, boosting their enthusiasm for credit unions and their confidence in their ability to build careers in the CU industry. continue reading » 7SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Coronavirus prompts renewed calls for postal banking, faster payments

first_imgFederal efforts to provide stimulus checks to Americans hit by the coronavirus’ economic fallout have revived calls for better government-backed financial delivery systems.Millions of households haven’t received their $1,200 payments nearly a month and a half after Congress authorized them. That has led some progressives and other observers to demand reforms to improve underbanked consumers’ access to the financial system, such as authorizing the U.S. Postal Service to provide financial services or creating a Federal Reserve-backed digital wallet. Some have even lamented the slow pace of the Fed’s implementation of a real-time payments network.“It’s a real shame that even when Congress kind of basically agrees about the money that we need to deploy, our systems are so broken that we can’t even get it to the people for whom it’s intended in an expedient way,” said Amanda Fischer, policy director at the Washington Center for Equitable Growth and a former Democratic congressional staffer. continue reading » ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more
