I fixed your sportsball chart.

This is actually well done, except that golf ∩ soccer ≠ cricket. 
And is it saying that quidditch is outside of this universe entirely, or that it is actually the superset of all those sports? I could see it going either way, really.

Gratuitous…something.

I originally had a grander vision here.

Scarified // Paul Gilbert & Friends

Via my friend Dave, who probably did not intend for me to use this as such, here is another entry in my occasional series, entitled, “Guitarists You’ve Never Heard Of Who Are Better Than John Mayer.”

Paul Gilbert was once named the fourth fastest guitarist on the planet. I wonder what the other three are like.

If the shredding doesn’t do it for you, at least stick around to see the drummer’s flawless recovery from dropping a stick.

This (via Twitter and @PenLlawen) is now my second favorite network protocol joke.
My favorite network protocol joke is about UDP, but I’m not sure you’d get it.


Aren’t we running out of IPv4 jokes?

Passenger Side // Wilco

Remember when Jeff Tweedy was an awesome alt-country songwriter? Before he was reading his own reviews in Pitchfork, before he began “crafting soundscapes?”

Squeeze - Black Coffee in Bed (Full Version)

Black Coffee In Bed // Squeeze

Listening to Squeeze this morning, which is of course wonderful, except for the insane jealousy of “why can’t I write and sing as easily Glenn Tilbrook apparently does?” that happens every time I do this.

Speaking of, listen for the background vocals by Elvis Costello. He makes me mad, too.

Long par 5, here in 2.

Then: duffed gap wedge, pitch over the green, poor chip on, two putts. From a birdie look to a double.

And Jesus, I love it.

  1. Against all my better judgement, we’re giving Dad an iPad so he can participate in the internets. If he turns out to be a great follow, I’ll let you know.
  2. One month in, the new job is great. A minor hitch: we are in temporary, shared office space, and there is a guy from some other company on the other side of my cube wall who needs to be hit in the face with a brick. He’s a racist, bullying blowhole, on the phone all day, and sounds like the less funny Jerky Boy. I can’t wait to get away.
  3. Last night we went to an art show; tonight, a play. Look at all the culture and shit up in this piece.
  4. Inspired by Abby, I’m going to try changing my workout regimen to the Stronglifts 5x5. Unlike her, though, I won’t blog about how I’m doing since that triggers the same feelings that working out in public does, strong feelings of Nope.
  5. I’m enjoying watching the World Cup. I don’t know if I’m ready to say I’m a soccer fan, and I doubt I’ll watch much after the tournament ends, but this right here is top flight sportsball drama.

Friday Music Quiz

donewithfish:

This is a thing I’ve been thinking about doing. I may only do it once. I may not do it on Friday. I may not do it at all.

I will give you five(or more…or less) hints on Friday morning. The answer is a song title, album title, or band name. First person to get it wins three nights in Vegas or nothing at all. Prizes are at my discretion.

These are the hints for FMQ #1:

(Song Title)

1. Two Brothers
2. The Last Song On Side One
3.The Maze
4.Tried And Convicted
5.Born near Whitford, Alberta in 1927

I can’t decide if I made this too easy or too difficult. I guess we will find out. My money is on Michele or John.

What song is it?

Answer here so others can keep guessing.

I’m gonna have the best time in Vegas!

Nope.

Nope.

Billy Squier - In The Dark

In The Dark // Billy Squier

Most people hear “80’s music” and think Boy George and Haircut 100 and Rick Astley.

I think Billy Squier.

(And Journey. And REO. Survivor, Donny Iris, Foreigner before they wimped out, Styx…)

This is excellent, but rule #5 is still that if you break any of her rules, you die by my hand.

Modern medicine can do two heart transplants on a guy and do them so well that he can finish in second place in the world’s most difficult golf tournament.

But show them a kid with mental health challenges, even minor ones, and they’re like, hell, I dunno, what do you think we should try?
