  1. Definitely curious about this one. Do you guys remember that 90's and Soul Coughing and thinking they sucked? We might have been wrong.

    AMC's ‘The Terror’ (based on the novel by Dan Simmons)

    I thought that first episode was strong in several respects. The spookiness/horror element was really good, the lead actor was phenomenal, a real star type of person (didn't know him before) and that element at the end with the father being dragged off was very strong, wrenching drama. High hopes for the rest of it.

    Great tip thanks. I've also seen online talk about focusing on squeezing the bar on other lifts.

    Small, unworthy things: part whatever

    Not putting on your blinker is a thing that deserves more shaming than it gets. Extremely rude. Who among ye is guilty of this crime?

    There was an interview I heard on the radio this week with a guest who I think was a PhD, but I regret that I can't remember their name. They were talking Trump and saying that it's smarter to attack Trump not as a racist but emphasizing that he uses race to divide us. I can see that this is challenging as Trump so obviously is a racist, but part of the idea obviously is that when someone like Beto, inspiring as it might be, calls Trump a racist, it in effect calls all Trump supporters racist as well, which has the effect of making them dig it. I can't do the interview justice here, but it was quite convincing.

    College Basketball: 2019 Bracket Edition

    Dana Altman continues to get people to Oregon. 5 star center upping his eligibility a year, Bagley-style, F'Aley Dante, commits to Oregon and will be available this year. Weird at this time of year to say that something impacts the overall recruiting rankings, but this almost certainly puts Oregon into the top 10 in classes which gives the lowly Pac-12 probably 4 top ten classes this year and perhaps a prayer at relevance. UCLA is not one of them.

    Watch, Watched, Watching: Midsommar Night Blues

    So excited that this show is finally back. Just 2 episodes in so far and feel like it's starting a tad slowly but confident it'll pick up. I thought the first episode of The Terror was intriguing and that the lead actor who is new to me was really strong. Looking forward to more of that one too.

    Football: A New Hope

    Was just coming in to say I've been watching for at least 30 minutes and waiting for TH to have a legit possession.

    One thing I'm happy to report is that after once reporting that I could only hand for like 30 seconds I can get like 1:30 now, and that's even doing some stuff up there like leg raises. There's some kind of mental trick, at least for me, where doing the leg raises creates some kind of distraction from the grip element that allows me to go a bit further where I felt like I was dying a 50 seconds and then start going those and before I know it I'm still up there at 90.

    The thing I originally quoted link to another piece that had this: ETA: Sorry if this has already been covered, but it's being reported both that Hickenlooper is maybe dropping out and will run for Senate in Colorady and also that Mark Sanford is visiting New Hampshire to continue to mull a bid against Trump on the GOP side.

    No, thank you for the rec. I'll check it out. I think the thing that worries me most about this realization is how it squares with how unread Trump is. Like, he could never be interested enough or bothered enough to read much anything but this is the thing that intrigued him.
  12. Is that guy Eason who was a top recruit and started at times as a freshman at Georgia going to be playing for Washington this year? I've been toying with ditching cable recently, but last year was my first year having Pac-12 channel, and that's one of my biggest hang-ups at the moment.

    This is still just baffling to me that it's not continued to be talked about ad nauseum. Even if not on ABC or CNN, the myriad other sites I read not to mention this place. I'm sure I've just missed it in spots, but I am having a hard time reconciling that it's apparently discussed so little. I've been terrified of Trump all along but am certainly more terrified now.

    If it's true that Trump used to study Hitler's speeches I had not heard that yet and would have thought that would be all over the place. Here's some terrifying reading for everyone.

    Not being familiar with this term I've been trying to read up on it and am still a bit confused. It's like when an ostensibly left person like Greenwald is a Putin-sympathizer?
