  1. @Kiwibrown @hornbybrown, come get your duck Duck walks into pub, downs pint, fights dog
  2. I spent my early years in Florida. I remember people saying "The South shall rise again" and that was the mid-80s. Stone Mountain outside Atlanta was officially opened 100 years to the day after the assassination of Abraham Lincoln. The State of Georgia bought it and finished it in 1972 as a reaction to the Brown vs. Board of Education decision. So all the heritage not hate folks don't know what they are talking about, or they are lying.
  3. It's on Netflix rn, you should watch it. Watched it the other night with my 9 year old. I thought it would be over her head, but she exploded my mind right after the credits started rolling when she started breaking down the metaphor for the machines using humans being like schools lying to kids about the real world just to get them to follow the rules. She understood it better than I did the first time I saw it, and I was 25 then.
  4. I hope you are able to put life in perspective without suffering the loss of someone you know. Edit to add: For someone so obviously anti-intellectual, you sure do spend a lot of effort trying to sound smart. It doesn't work, but you sure do try.
  5. Only a Fox News viewer would use quote marks around a word used to describe the world's leading experts on a matter.
  6. I'm always interested in seeing what drives people to greatness and how they try to inspire others to achieve greater things. There is just nothing redeeming to me about his drive for greatness.
  7. Hard pass for me as well. I think he could play in the scheme, but I wouldn't want to pay what he'll make to find out. I also think we're fine with our RG options for now.
  8. Sleater-Kinney was on Sub Pop, so if you were into Nirvana/Pearl Jam/Soundgarden in the 90's and even remotely curious about the surrounding scene, you may have been at least tangentially aware of Carrie because of the whole "riot grrrl" minor phenomenon occurring with the girls I was trying to sleep with at the time. Having grown up in a small town before the dawn of the internet, the only way for me to expand my musical horizons was through the foldout catalogs that minor labels would include with the cassette that you purchased. You had to be resourceful back then, or it was Paula Abdul 24 hours a day on the radio. My EastWest records catalog from my purchase of Transnational Speedway League by Clutch led to owning a Trenchmouth tape, but I never really got into math rock/post-hardcore stuff. I knew of Fred because I am a drummer, and drummers know the name of every drummer from every band that they've ever listened to, as opposed to the names of every girl they've ever slept with. Anyway, Barkley was a likable a-hole as opposed to Jordan. An easy to root for heel. Also, much less ubiquitous. I just don't like Jordan since booing him in 1988 at my first live NBA game when the Bulls beat the Cavs. 32 years later, still don't like him.
  9. Before going on to make the greatest sketch television show in the history of the world, Portlandia, both Carrie Brownstein and Fred Armisen were members of two separate 90's punk bands of some repute.
  10. Unpopular take: I have always disliked Michael Jordan.
  11. Yeah, that's a bit more than most YouTube videos will show you. Good luck.
  12. Godspeed, man. Also, keep your wife away from my wife. Don't want her getting any ideas. You roughing in the plumbing yourself? That's next level DIY.
  13. Imagine admitting such a thing in a public forum.
