  1. MLB Postseason: All Arms on Deck

    If the Cubs win 4 more games, yes, the North Side will burn. ETA: Wild. Apparently this is only the second time a team has sent the minimum to the plate in a postseason game.
  2. #trumpbookreport - add your idea!

    Catch 22?
  3. What are you listening to? Vol. XXII

    I approve of all of this. And every time I see a package of Pocky in a store, the words "NO POCKY FOR KITTY!" pop into my head. Every. Single. Fucking. Time.
  4. What are you listening to? Vol. XXII

    YES! That is such a delightful movie. I've told a bunch of people at work about it recently. None of them had ever heard of it, which is a bit sad, really. Oh, and I almost said "And, and, fucking and?" to a student in class, then realized that not only would that be totally inappropriate, even as a joke, but they wouldn't have a chance of catching the reference.
  5. MLB Postseason: All Arms on Deck

    I just had a vision of you providing Bakker-esque commentary on the rest of the postseason.
  6. MLB Postseason: All Arms on Deck

    In your own house? At your own house? Damn!
  7. MLB Postseason: All Arms on Deck

    Get the MLB At Bat app. You can listen to any baseball game with any radio team (home or away), as long as you're connected to the internet. It's usually about $20 per season, but I imagine there are discounts for the postseason.
  8. MLB Thread -- Time for the Postseason

    As Phillies fans will tell you, Chase Utley is The Man.
  9. MLB Thread -- Time for the Postseason

    Damn. Right now, it looks like The Nationals are the only team who won't get swept in the Division series.
  10. What are you listening to? Vol. XXII

    So, the new Joyce Manor album, Cody, is really good, for those of you into the melodic punky thing. Listen to it here at your own peril -- songs will get stuck in your head. I'm also digging the new Danny Brown album, Atrocity Exhibition. I've always loved music where it feels like everything is about to come totally unhinged and fall apart, and "When It Rain" totally nails that feeling. (WTF is up with the room full of VHS tapes in that video?) The new Clipping album, Splendor & Misery, is really good. Someone suggested it could be nominated for a Best Related Work Hugo next year, and I'm down with that. I mean, the band describes it as "an Afrofuturist, dystopian concept album that follows the sole survivor of a slave uprising on an interstellar cargo ship, and the onboard computer that falls in love with him", and there are references to Samuel Delany and N. K. Jemisin, so yeah.... "Real players trip light years..." In the not-new-music department, I listened to a shitload of Springsteen while reading his memoir, and then went on a big Busta Rhymes and Leaders of the New School binge.
  11. MLB Thread -- Time for the Postseason

    I would have paid good money to see this happen live on national TV. "Clayton, my friend, let me tell you about these tacos I will make for you..." (By the way, I'm not a fan of either team in this series, but I am a big fan of MC's tacos. If this visit to the mound had happened, Kershaw would have finished the game with 12 additional pitches, all one-pitch strikeouts. How is that possible? Tacos, that's how.)
  12. MLB 2016: Win for Vin

    I am totally with you on this. I'd vote for getting rid of interleague play entirely.
  13. NFL 2016 Week 2: extending the mustache ride in LA

    Cutler just channeled his inner Grossman. Also: "Mills took the cheese." I'll tune in for Gruden saying ridiculous shit over pretty much anyone else's insightful commentary.
  14. Will eBooks supplant Paper-books?

    MatchBook. And yeah, now I remember the limited selection.
