    The Tick (on Amazon Prime)

    Yeah, season two was way better than season 1. I enjoyed both, but The Terror honestly started grating on me. The way this season was set up was great, the twists fun and actually somewhat unexpected at time. That said, I find myself impatiently waiting forfor everyone's favorite, The Evil Midnight Bomber What Bombs at Midnight

    MLB Offseason 2018: Harper, Your Herald Boras Sings

    See, that is why I don't post here. Everything was smooth but unsustainable sailing, and then that game happened.

    Desperate? I prefer the term forlorn, has more of a nautical ring to it. I don't post much out of insane superstition because anytime I come here to crow about how well the M's are playing, they make me eat my words. But I guess in a rebuilding year, who gives a shit. Just gotta enjoy the fun bits of this season.

    MLB Offseason 2018: Harper, Your Herald Boras Sings

    Ichiro is confirmed as retiring after this last Japan series game today. Ichiro coming to the US and that first season is one of the major memories I have of baseball, partly because it is coupled with the amazing 2001 season, but also he was just so cool and exotic. He remains the only sports figure I have ever had on my bedroom wall.

    Honestly, kind of bugs me that Mo was unanimous. It's not some stand that if Babe, or Gehrig or all those legends were unanimous no one should, it's more of a practical thing. There were plenty of guys on the ballot that could have used the votes. The fact that some guys who had good careers are one and done, is kind of silly. Lance Berkman and Roy Oswald are the two that jump out at me as guys who you can kind of make a case for, and then there is the guys who could use some momentum for next year, like Larry Walker or Scott Rolan.

    Gotta love Edgar getting into the Hall of Fame. The guy is one of the best hitters in the modern era, and speaking as a Mariners fan, he means too much to this region and all Mariners fans to not go to Cooperstown.

    The Good Place S3 - heaven is a place on Earth (spoilers)

    Well clearly they fixed something considering the Jaguars are bad again.

    MLB 2018: Bonfire of the Metropolitans

    Seattle is burning, all that is left is pain. Then again, what else is new.

    Dating - I love the way you swipe

    Tonight after work I went out with some co-workers and one of them is this woman I've been interested in for a bit and have been meaning to ask out, just hadn't worked up the courage. Since our schedules are changing and we aren't going to be working together so much, I decided it was time to give it a go since at this point awkwardness at work is no longer a factor. To my surprise, she seemed pretty interested in something in the vein of a date. I admit I had kind of built up a little bit of emotional armor expecting rejection, but it didn't come. Pretty excited at the prospect of something happening between us, though it is for sure possible she see it as platonic, so I'm going to proceed with caution, but it seems promising.

    MLB 2018: Bonfire of the Metropolitans

    It could be, supposedly the Lakers (her previous employers) weren't sad to see her leave, so she might just be awful. I'm more inclined that the truth is somewhere in the middle ground. racism is almost certainly an issue within baseball as a whole, so I think that it is entirely possible, and some of it might just be her being bitter, and perhaps rightly because it sounds like they gave her a massively broad mandate yet didn't really give her a support staff. A good article from Lookout Landing about the subject and how it feels to be a fan right now https://www.lookoutlanding.com/2018/11/14/18092310/there-is-no-best-case-scenario-for-the-mariners-or-dr-lorena-martin-or-their-fans

    https://www.seattletimes.com/sports/mariners/lorena-martin-and-mariners-part-ways/?utm_content=bufferba624&utm_medium=social&utm_source=twitter.com&utm_campaign=buffer Boy, This is some really bad shit coming out of Seattle, and the M's are not looking good. Can't imagine that they're gonna get much in the way of FA's, not that that is what is important. I think it is abhorrent, and has really soured me on the entire upper management within the Mariners baseball operation. Kevin Mather should have been fired after the sexual harassment scandal broke, and if these allegations are true, and I think it is true, because it's probably pretty widespread across baseball. Dipoto, Servais, and McKay gotta go if there is even a shred of truth here.

    It's gotta be Doug Forcett, he was living in Calgary when he had his revaluation long ago.

    US Politics: In Through the Out Door

    Yep, but until we get actual proportional representation, voting for a third party is just stupid. It's never going to be the year that everyone just decides to vote Green or Libertarian, you're just ensuring that those who you more closely align with get few votes, and those who are basically the antithesis of what you're standing up for benefit.

    US Politics: In Through the Out Door

    I think part of it is that Dem's probably consume a more diverse range of media. Not to sound arrogant, but I think that Dems listen to a wider range of opinions on their side of the aisle than Republicans do. Because of this, you often get conflicting messages and differing ideas, where as Republicans largely consume Fox, which is the propaganda arm of the RNC, or other right wing commentators who either take all their cues from Fox or feed into the madness that Fox dispense. Also Dems have a wider range of opinions within the party, which makes it harder to message to the entire group without putting at least one part of your base off. The messaging that gets me fired up is not what gets a more centrist Dem, do you end up with watered down trash that inspires no one but doesn't actively offend anyone.

    US Politics: In Through the Out Door

    I should have phrased it as hurting the left with independents. I don't think that running on an anti-Trump platform is gonna get us across the line in 2020. So many folks have tuned out because of how politics has worked of the last few years (The Dems call Trump out for being awful, he dismisses it and engineers a more entertaining but less politically damaging scandal/gaff to get folks off the schedule), so Dems shouting about how bad Trump is is just feeding into that issue. Folks around him being dragged out of their homes in handcuffs or dragged in front of the house is actually going to get some attention (I hope).
