    Get your game on!

    Get your mic fixed, bitch! Need to hear that sultry voice as I'm passing through your race line as supplemental braking.

    Happy Birthday Alex (screaming oranges)

    Happy birthday, slacker. Hope you get some new Grados.

    Happy Birthday mikeymad!

    Happy birthday, neighbor! Great thing about opening a 52 year old bottle is you can do a nice 25 and just claim you're dyslexic.

    Happy Birthday, Chris!

    Happy belated Thursday, Racer boi! If I can get a machine working, I may even let you beat me in a race once as a gift.

    MLB playoffs 2014

    Love how much traction MLB got here this year. I think the Nats were my quaternary team in the NL, after Braves, Cubs, Giants, but now that they've won, I guess I'll just care even less. (Mainly, I liked their hats, and seeming, I like their chanting fan base.) Sorry for your loss, Shelly!

    And now what did you do TODAY?

    But they're on sale right now; it's all I can afford. Seattle's bloody expensive, I mean, I have to pay for power for 31 days this month.

    And now what did you do TODAY?

    I already invited him to come up to Seattle and move into Colin's guest room; haven't heard back yet. Will let Colin know once he gets a knock on the door saying "I'm here to drink all your whiskey; where's it at?"

    Happy 64th Carl!

    When I asked for my first Beatles album, I asked for the Beatles Anthology Vol 1. My mom basically said "that's dumb" and gave me a copy of Sgt. Pepper's. A few years later, I got into The Flaming Lips. Of course, they covered Sgt Pepper in it's entirety, and I wound up with an autographed version of that on vinyl. Gonna spin this version in your honour today. Happy birthday, my fiend!

    What are you reading now?

    Heh. Thanks to talking to @TMoney last night when I should have been asleep, I got the audiobook of Why We Sleep. Gonna give it a spin at work while I'm up at this un-Satanly hour. 4:30 is too bloody early for this historic night owl.

    RIP someone or another

    House of 1,000 Corpses was the first movie Zoe ever went to in theatres (at 6 months old.) I wound up watching that movie 50-100 times, and definitely appreciated the Captain. RIP, Sid.

    And now what did you do TODAY?

    Shelly, I highly recommend getting a buoyant sunglasses retaining system and/or floating sunglasses. My Maui Jims that I used for such things are now residing at the bottom of the Tennessee River after I rolled a waverunner a couple years ago. Glad you're having a blast!

    Oh man, that's horrible! So sorry to hear, man.

    I've never seen those before, but Gallo is who I thought made them as I was scrolling through.

    Dammit, Matt!

    RIP someone or another

    I have been thinking about him after I saw reminders of when a lot of us were in Chicago the week after. If I wasn't out of desk whiskey, I'd pour one in remembrance.

    The Live Music Thread

    Oh man, I wish I would have known about the Herbie/Kamasi show. Just recently introduced to KW but as a sax player, I definitely enjoy hearing people who are near the top of the game.

    What are you EATING right now?

    Appetizer: Sous-vide ~32 hour ribs, + oven after chilling + finish in cast iron Main: 28oz NY Strip - reverse seared Chef is a bit of a dick, but the food was solid (except for a few bites that were a fatty plasma/liquid ecstasy combo).

    Head-Case Darts

    So I've been going out and playing darts quite a bit lately, and I'm sick and tired of getting beaten by my fairer-sexed companions. I'm also sick of shitty house darts, and shitty boards. Since this is HC, and I have the space, I'm contemplating getting a setup for the house to practice, and have some darts to keep with me when I go out so we don't have to play with nylon nonsense. I think I've narrowed my board choices down to either the Winmau Blade 5 (60$) or Blade 5 Dual Core (better, and 85-90$.) The dart board surround, and the darts themselves, however, I'm not sure on. Anyone here throw? Have a recommendation for some mid-level darts I should consider (I'll save the Hammerheads for the Christmas wish list)? What about a surround? I've ruled out the cabinet option, as it seems lacking, but definitely want to protect the walls. **BRENT**

    Head-Case Darts

    I like those; may need to buy some of your castoffs.

    Head Case Motorsports

    I thought I mentioned it in here, but turns out it was on FB in a thread with a buddy who just got a 718 Cayman S. I think virtually every angle of this car is great, even rear 3/4 (7/8?), but the tail-on view able is incredibly Camaro-esque, which is a very bad thing, aesthetically. Why the shit did they think that was a good idea?

    Post what you're watching

    OK, so finished The Wire, and it lived up to the hype. IDK if I'll re-watch unless I watch with someone else, but it was great. Letterkenny - I started on 6/11, and as it seems I posted the above at 4am on 6/12, I finished Letterkenny (6 seasons) sometime in the afternoon on the 12th, completing the final four seasons in one sitting. Such a witty show, and ridiculously progressive; not what I expected from the protagonists being self-identified "hicks." Chernobyl - I had to break this one up into 2 sittings, as after 4+ hours (80% of the way), I realized I needed to get a nap in before work Wednesday. I finished it up before work tonight and I definitely appreciated the story. I'll probably go back and look through what other people were talking about with related videos and articles posted to get some more information; fascinating stuff. Oh, I also watched S3 of Handmaid's Tale. I did that in a sitting up through S3E8, when I realized that S3E9 wasn't coming out until the next day. I didn't realize it wasn't all out there, so now I'm just bored and waiting around for the next 4 episodes. Feels like I'm watching it just for completion's sake, but after a... different... E9, I'm hoping it'll pick up; they have some room to move, I feel. Almost forgot about Stranger Things S3. Another enjoyable romp that wasn't quite as good as S1, but was squarely ahead of S2. I'm a bit frustrated with all of the anti-smoking tirades lobbed at the show, but it's a period piece, and as much as I hate cigarette smoke, it was still quite prevalent in the 80s. It's funny, as Letterkenny above is riddled with it, and it's even part of a tertiary plot during one of the seasons, and this is set in modern times (well, as modern as Canada can be...) I've re-watched Letterkenny a couple times, finished re-watching HIMYM as mentioned above, and I'm sure I started something else. I mean, it has been 5 weeks; making it through ~15 seasons of TV seems light. Oh, saw first showing of the new Spiderman, along with Spiderman: Into The Spiderverse. I caught the first showing of the former, and enjoyed the Tom Holland fronted reimagination, though the latter was easily the best Spiderman movie I've ever seen.

    RIP someone or another

    Bah... R.I.P. Rip Torn left this mortal coil today at the age of 88. https://consequenceofsound.net/2019/07/r-i-p-rip-torn/amp/
