Re: Music for the Masses

In a just world, absolute shit like The Darkness would never have recorded an album and everybody would know Uncle Acid. The Darkness were always just a novelty act, weren't they? I certainly haven't heard anything from them since 2002, maybe '03. Whenever "I Believe in a Thing Called Love" and "Gi...

Kirk Cousins is so anti-clutch that if you allowed clutch to come in contact with him, it would cause an explosion that would crack the Earth's crust. I read a really good article breaking him down a couple weeks ago. Basically the guy's a robot. On planned throws his timing and mechanics are perfe...

Shelving-instead-of-cabinets is okay, if and only if you have a very effective hood over the stove. There is gas to the home, so it may be possible to retrofit a gas stove, but man I'm trying to think how you'd put in a hood over that stove without destroying the aesthetic, and coming up with things...

I also wonder if superhero fatigue is going to finally start setting in at some point. I don't plan on seeing every Marvel movie as they come out as I did a few years ago. I'll wait for the reviews and make a decision. And in most cases if I do decide I need to see it, I'm still waiting for blu-ray...

As part of the post-mortem lionization of GHWB, CNN published his successor letter to Clinton , making me wonder what Trump's letter will be like, if he even writes one. If Trump loses in 2020, the eleven weeks between the election and the inauguration of his successor are going to be epic Trumpism...

You've gotta admit, though, if you want your time in office to look like the Golden Age of America, you've just gotta do two things: 1) Follow George W. Bush. 2) Precede Donald Trump.

Yeah, Michael [Scott] coming up to Pam's desk and pounding on it going "PAM! PAMPAMPAM!" is cringey, not least because my boss then decided to do it to our coworker named Pam.

It’s too absurd for cringe. The cringe comes from too close for comfort.

Huh. The saddle place wouldn't happen to be in Camden, would it? Big horse culture there, to the point that there are signs in swankier parts of town saying, "Horses Forbidden on Sidewalks."
