The Dwight Freeney signing is fucking stupid and will come to bite us in the ass next year.
FWIW concerning the "Tom's awful opinions vs. Vampire Weekend is a band that shouldn't inspire vehement hatred" thing: Watching Tom trying to defend a scumbag, racist piece of shit in John Lydon...
Well, funny thing is that I didn't plan on getting it. There's two stores in downtown Bellingham, one that opened at 8:30 and the other that opened at 9:30 and they're across the street from one...
Here's all I got this year: http://imgur.com/a/bygHy
Apologies for the shit quality of my camera phone.
5 8 6 instead of, say, Age of Consent or Sub-Culture just seems bizarre but w/e. Great setlist nonetheless. Makes it even more heartbreaking that I'll probably never see them live at this point.
As much as I love the lineup, I won't be going for the second straight year. Grad school is kicking my ass. =(
I barely post on the board anymore, but here's my list:
1. Dirty Projectors - Swing Lo Magellan
2. The Fresh & Onlys - Long Slow Dance
3. Wild Nothing - Nocturne
4. The Tallest Man on Earth -...
We are the worst franchise in football. Not even the Browns have managed to look this bad this year. The window on a successful Chargers franchise has fucking shut. Fuck this team.
And so the Chargers' yearly nationally televised embarrassment proceeds as usual. Fucking bravo, guys. Innovating new ways to lose and lose BADLY at that.
13 for 14 this week.
And of course I only missed one pick because I took the Chiefs over the Chargers. lol
Can someone explain the goal post ruling? Does that mean ANY football that reaches over the goal posts is automatically good? What the fuck.
Wes also picked Tennessee to win. And I thought my Cincy pick was risky, damn.
Also, the Chargers are demonstrating that they are, without a doubt, the most overrated organization in pro football....
Jesus christ, the NFL is the bizarro zone this week. SF gets out played by the goddamn Vikings, Tennessee unleashes the beast all over Detroit, god damn.
Absolutely. I just figured that most people saved the 12th man designation for stadiums that are typically deafeningly loud (which CenturyLink Field is, by all means) and not just on opening night.
Since when has Giants Stadium been a 12th man stadium?
Motherfuck Tampa Bay, Washington, New Orleans, Oakland and KC (among many others) for sinking my pick em hopes.
That was reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeally ugly. Jesus.
A win's a win, but I don't think there is much hope for our offense this year. Fuck.
He probably banged Jemina Pearl when they were working on her solo record.
Alright, I'm in. PREPARE FOR YET ANOTHER SEASON OF SELF-LOATHING. WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
Hey is it too late to get in on the pick em league action with you guys?
Well, now that I moved up the coast and downgraded cable plans I'll end up seeing my Chargers play even less than last season.
Can they beat the Raiders on monday? I don't even fucking know...
Hey so... This is going to be another one of those "hey everybody I need to ask you something that you have been asked already" kind of posts, but yeah. I need your recommendations on sub-300$...
So... In just over two weeks time I'll be moving a bunch of stuff up the west coast with my dad. This journey will take 5-6 days and might drive me completely fucking insane. I turn to you to...
Oh. Well, it sounded fine at BARC. I think I'm going to keep it even if it is a bootleg. Thanks for finding the listing, Jared.
Courtesy of Amoeba in SF:
The Stone Roses - s/t (I don't know what fucking repress this is, because Discogs doesnt list it, but it's with red-colored vinyl)
Daniel Johnston - 1990/Artistic Vice
I'm stoked for this you guys.
Hey Greg, did you get my email?
Justice - cross
Beach Fossils - s/t (grey and white splatter vinyl)
I really need to stop buying records for a while... x.x
Right, this is more about whether it'll be more easy to predict which records are going to get positively reviewed (since the pop-up feature article thing is new)than "how do they pick which records...
C'mon guys, I'm not trying to be conspiratorial. Hell, they had an interview bit on Air right before they put up a damning indictment of Voyage Dans La Lune, so there are exceptions. It's more that...
So, BNM for Passion Pit. Should we expect similar praise for whomever p4k decides to do feature articles on?
I picked up:
Glasser - Ring
Crystal Stilts - Alight of Night
Last weekend of July? I could do that, especially if I manage to find a place to crash at in the city.
Yeah, this and the whole "getting damaged more easily" thing (my Strange Mercy record already has a scratch on side B) has made me wary of getting colored vinyl. That and I think if I wanted them,...
Dirty Projectors - Bitte Orca
Sebadoh - Bakesale (reissue)
Bakesale marks my first non-white colored vinyl, hopefully it'll last.
The New Pornographers - Electric Version
Dinosaur Jr. - Where You Been
Echo and the Bunnymen - s/t
Don't know how far in advance you guys plan these, BUT if you were to save the date of July 20th for one of these get togethers, I ought to be able to make it no problem.
Friday is record buying day:
Harry Nilsson - Nilsson Schmilsson
Paul Simon - Graceland
Is Rhythm of the Saints as easy to find used as Graceland is? I'm looking for it cheap.
Havent been able to get records for a month so...
The New Pornographers - Mass Romantic
The Mountain Goats - The Life of the World to Come
R.E.M. - Fables of the Reconstruction
So... If you guys are planning ahead, I'll be done with my employment before the last week of July. So if you happen to schedule one of these get togethers after the 23rd, I might be able to attend.
Not Competitive Wine Tasting.
Or Advanced Gay, Biology 101, Basic Geneology or Asian Population Studies.
But not every episode can be perfect.
The people replacing them wrote Just Shoot Me which was a travesty of laugh track-infused comedy.
I don't have any faith whatsoever in the show even resembling what I used to love. This will be...
Okkervil River - The Stage Names
And the writing exodus/purge continues with Chris McKenna announcing he's leaving Community on twitter.
And just like that, my hopes are dashed.
Dan Harmon out as showrunner of Community.
I know that feel, dude. Working two jobs with no days off, no hassle-free transportation to the city basically makes it impossible for me to make one of these.
I like this thread more than the other thread that's exactly the same.
