  1. Am I the only person who doesn't like watermelon?

    I was about to reply to your earlier comment about sprinkling salt on it with "Or infuse it with vodka", but you beat me to it!
  2. Stereogum is streaming the upcoming album by a Baltimore hardcore band called Angel Du$t (no really, the band spells it like that) and it's awesome. Perfect for kids like me who love fast, loud, and melodic short songs. Think I might start a circle pit with my cats.
  3. What's For Dinner v. 6

    I took advantage of the nice weather to go grill on the roof for the first time this year. Burgers (some all-beef, some a beef and bacon blend, all bought from the new butcher down the street) with grilled jalapenos, served on grill-toasted English muffins with potato salad on the side.
  4. Well, that was a miserable end to the season. So, bring on the Euros then?
  5. MLB 2016: Chia Pet Un-Safe Zone

    Extend that to 0-4 and you might have MC, Myshkin, and Young Wolf pooling their money to buy you a ticket every time St. Louis visits LA.
  6. Slug 'em back - Drinking Continues!

  7. Slug 'em back - Drinking Continues!

    Will Stella follow suit and rename themselves "Belgium"?
  8. MDF: Return of the BATTLE HAT

    Seriously. Getting beat up by the chicken man in Baltimore is a story you can tell people. Get beat up by a roving ball of sweaty stale beer and people won't believe you ever left Boston.
  9. MLB 2016: Chia Pet Un-Safe Zone

    I'm not sure anyone has beenhaving quite as much fun as Bartolo Colon the past two seasons.
  10. [SPOILERS] The Raven Cycle - The Raven King is out

    I liked it a lot, but then I think Ronan is a fantastic character. Yes, there were too many new characters thrown into the mix, but I thought it closed the series nicely. I hated getting to Union Square on the train all of last week, because it meant I had to stop reading for a few minutes while I made the transfer to a different line. And while Noah didn't get any sort of big group goodbye (can you group hug a ghost?), I liked the closure of him being the one who gave Gansey the message that set him out on the quest in the first place.
  11. This Board is not like the book

    If thatdid exist, I have this weird hunch that you'd be me and I'd be you. (For a while, of course. )
  12. Shakespeare or Batman

    23/30, which is about right for someone who hasn't read very much Batman.
  13. MDF: Return of the BATTLE HAT

    Why would we go anywhere but Max's? They have TV's, they have food, and theyhave what's probably the best beer list in Baltimore. (I mean unless Munich is in the final and MC wants a place where he can sweet talk the bartender into a round of shots, of course.) If Man City somehow makes it to the final, I'm gonna demand that Alex T makes his way over for the mayhem.
  14. MLB, Spring has sprung.

    To be honest, we've all been expecting this for years.
