    The Crown Season 3 [Spoilers]

    Overall I enjoyed the new season, but I will say it wasn't as compelling as the first two for me. Olivia Coleman is a treasure, but her storyline this season felt a bit muted. Of course being based in reality it could have just been that young Elizabeth had more intriguing events/life lessons going on. HBC's performance was really good in my opinion because she really made me hate Princess Margret when I actually empathized with her in the previous seasons. Also, I love Matt Smith, but Tobias Menzies absolutely nails Philip's character in a way that Matt never quite did.

    Right? Such good holdup play. Wait till he has Tierny overlapping with him.

    And that game was crap. Without analyzing it too much James is legit for United going forward, most everyone else was poor on the day except for maybe Tuanzebe. For Arsenal Guendouzi continues to impress me while Pepe continues to disappoint. I do think the attacking dynamic will change when Bellarin and Tierny step in at fullback. But overall it was poor play, poor officiating, and honestly two managers who lack ideas.

    Yes. Muscle issue from a couple of weeks ago. Expected back in a couple more weeks.

    Watch, Watched, Watching: Hunting Minds

    Just finished a rewatch of Peep Show. It’s so good! It has the awkward comedy typical of many great British shows and the borderline psychopathy of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. Aaaand it launched the career of Olivia Colman...

    Great show! With regards to the standup, it has to be said that it is standup from the early 60s so much different from what we’re accustomed to these days...

    Speaking of Manchester United, I heard a bit on a podcast recently that referenced the notion that many people in the US who have only started following football in the last decade don’t know that United used to always put out a world class squad. Now I’m normally not a fan of the idea that I’m older than someone’s target audience, but for some reason that thought made me happy. When I first paid attention to the English league they were competing with Arsenal for best EPL team and competing with no one for popularity...

    Also, prediction for the United v Arsenal match here; Pogba returns to score a penalty after another David Luiz gaff and a ridiculously long run up, but Pepe gets on the score sheet in the run of play for the first time and Auba nets a beauty to go ahead. Then of course Daniel James beats Sokratis in the 87th to level. Tell me I’m wrong...

    Everyone assumes Poch will head to Manchester United, whether it’s this season or next. But is he really a good fit for that situation? I’m not sure, legitimately asking. He’s an excellent manager to be sure. But his philosophy doesn’t seem to mesh with the players United currently have (high pressing etc.) and in the current climate signings are more so the realm of sporting directors, and we know the issues Spurs have had with bringing in new players. So what does he bring to a club like United that’s going to make an impact? Is it just another refresh?
  11. Tywin only plays fantasy football because he thinks that’s what “lads” do. He secretly keeps spreadsheets charting the box office returns of films shot in Central European countries because he really likes Hollywood but really loves the progress of social capital in former Soviet republics. He’s more complex than he lets on...

    Third Quarter 2019 Reading

    A little over halfway through The Silk Road: A New History Of The World by Peter Frankopan. Really well done look at world events that focuses on the geographic arenas that drove things forward through economic, political, and cultural practices throughout history. Usually we get a narrative that revolves around a particular viewpoint, often British or American but sometimes Asian. This book does a good job of shifting the focus from place to place based on where the sphere of influence resided at a given point in time. As it turns out, more often than I previously thought, the goings on in Central Asia and the Middle East influenced the rest of the world’s history.

    Small unworthy things - as you were

    Saw a billboard today for “Nissani Bros Chevrolet.” I feel as though their market research led them astray from a natural partnership...

    No imagination necessary. I’m living that nightmare.
