Dedicated to the premise that life would be better if we all took ourselves a little less seriously.
I saw Young Frankenstein on WPIX when I was maybe 8 years old and I thought it was the funniest thing I'd ever seen. It's almost 35 years later and I still find it hilarious. Either I have the mentality of an 8-year-old or it's a really good movie. Or both. Or as Dave would conclude, "it's probably a combination of the three."
Jamie Collins traded from the Patriots to the Browns. Penthouse to the outhouse.
belichick is a vengeful god
Wife ordered me to take off the Ken Bone ensemble. Said it made me look creepy, not funny. It's the first year I'm not with the kids in the 'hood. I'm parked at home w/ tunes cranking and beers. I could get used to this.
i just put up ian as eleven from starnger things on facebook . . . he's a spitting image
Halloween on Monday sucks. Cramping my cocktail while trick or treating style. Halloween should always be on a Friday or Saturday.
just saw a dude with a 'kindness matters' bumper sticker flicking off a pro-trump group in my town. fuck everything.
agreed. i overdid the tequila-instead-of-beer plan on saturday and i'm declining to do my normal halloween imbibing.
zson collected an inordinate amount of candy within a 15 house radius of home. "I'm done" he said, "let's go have juice boxes." Didn't make it to TR's.
my wife is pissed at me because i didn't force ian to wear an undershirt under his pink dress, so he's probably freezing to death
Halloween should be the last Saturday in October. I'm three deep, but a 515 AM wake-up and three straight 15-hour days coming at me this week is killing my buzz.The most amusing thing happening right now is the Indian guy yelling at kids running thru his garden to get to the next-door house. He yells every time and they all run thru it, because Halloween.It's cold as balls in NJ. It was 75 degrees y/day afternoon.
Both zkids are bouncing off the walls, high on sugar and corn syrup.
I nibbled a wee bit of magic gummy. Not bouncing off a wall though.
Could result in early candy depletion, TR.
1st year w the golf cart halloween. Worth it's weight in gold.
On Halloween. And its.
Agreed on the Monday night Halloweens. It's bullshit. The difference between last year and this....whoa. We live in a new community, loaded with young families like ourselves. Virtually no cars, lots of golf carts, and one out of 15 houses or so with treats for the adults. Not this year on the latter which is fine cuz I gotta go to work.
Agree on the last Saturday of October for Halloween. Better for all involved parties.
Last year the neighborhood was packed. And many houses were serving. Nearly every parent walking with kids had a drink. Sparse crowds this year and plenty of empty houses. Halloween on Monday can suck it.I had one talboy beer. Didn't even finish it. Will probably have a bourbon to go with a little candy later.
Upon further thought, it should be the last Friday. Always better when kids have school that day. That allows parents to have their own adult costume party night.
Yeah. That works. Is this a movement? How do we make this happen? Rob...don't you hang out with police chiefs and supreme court justices?
I'm fine with that too. Though I've never done a costume party and I don't care if I ever do. I won't take that away from other adults though.
Dave has been crusading for over a decade to have Super Sunday to become Super Saturday. That's arguably a lower hurdle and Dave has failed miserably. Not optimistic for All Hallows' Eve to get moved, even though I wholeheartedly approve.
Sorry for the lousy grammatical typo. Jamming myself.

Pink Floyd's album Meddle, 45 years old yesterday. Some of you might recall a standout track from it. It was called "One of These Days."http://ultimateclassicrock.com/pink-floyd-meddle/
I used to work in a laboratory and at the end of certain experiments we had to kill and dissect the rats used in the experiments. I would always start those experiments by quoting that song to the rats.
I used to work in Chicago, in a department store.. and IMHO, Fearless is the best track on Meddle.
this is some good work-- halloween on a friday and the super bowl on a saturday. gtb should be in charge of secular holiday policy. thanksgiving seems to work as is.
Please just don't mess with Squirrel Appreciation Day (January 21).
When is Mess With Squirrel Day? Am I too old to see RTJ?
My first Twin Peaks experience happening now. A "classier" Hooters with a lodgey feel and way better tv/sports viewing. For you ladies out there, great place to pick up guys....target rich.
I'm going to see RTJ. I'm younger and better looking than you but I think you can get away with it.
There was a Hooters in Twin Peaks? Did Shelly work there? Or Rollergirl?
I had not one but two bowls of venison chili. Outstanding I say!
RTJ... Okay, I first thought you meant Robert Trent Jones, and my dumb first thought was is anyone too old for his courses?I knew Zman didn't intend a reference to a ring type joint, nor a request to join, since he's already a GTB member.For Danimal's sake he might've meant Road to Jacksonville, a southern rock e-zone based out of . . . wait for it . . . France. Nah.For the purposes of not having this blog shut down, I want to believe he didn't mean Reif-Treifft-Jung, a German dating service translated as "mature meets young." We do not condone, Z. Then there's the Rodrigues Triple Junction, also known as the Central Indian [Ocean] Triple Junction (CITJ) is a geologic triple junction in the southern Indian Ocean where three tectonic plates meet: the African Plate, the Indo-Australian Plate, and the Antarctic Plate. The triple junction is named for the island of Rodrigues which lies 1,000 km (620 mi) north-west of it. Could be...Okay, I actually figured it out for real right after my Robert Trent Jones senior moment.Reduce the Juice!
Danimal- you excited about the name change of your local minor league baseball team? I'm all for unique team names, especially in minor league sports, so I fully support the change from Jacksonville Suns to Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp.
see, that kind of news should be a post. postcount!
The Jumbo Shrimp merchandise is fantastic. There's at least a 90% chance I order their away hat.
Heads up Old 97s fans - just saw some artwork for this show, coming to the musical boomtown of Rocky Mount, VA. It's a bit out of the way, but a really great venue.http://harvester-music.com/event.cfm?id=250429&cart
Do any of you refer to emails as "notes"? It drives me nuts when people ask "Did you see my note?" when they're referring to an email. It drives me even more nuts when people suggest "Perhaps we should send them a note" because it's unclear whether you want me to prepare a formal letter on letterhead, or if you want me to scribble something on the back of a napkin, or, now, if you want me to send them an email. Imprecision!!
I call them dittos. Suck it, Zman!
just placed an order for jumbo shrimp merch with my jax-based sister. go shrimp!
A co-worker of mine is on an airplane right now, flying to Chicago for a client dinner at a sports bar. Meanwhile, I will be working until 9-10 PM at my desk, going home, and then waking up at 5 AM tmrw. Not fair.
Charlie Sheen is being flown into Game 7 by Cleveland entrepreneurs Bobby George of Corporate Management Group & Tony Madalone owner of apparel company Fresh Brewed Tees. Said Madalone: "We're die hard Clevelanders and wanted to do this for the fans."That rather amuses me. If the PA person doesn't play X's version of "Wild Thing" . . . well, they should.
You should send them a note to that effect. Sorry, it was low-hanging fruit.
Emails are so 90's, Z.
i'm late today, but i just put up a miraculous sentence
Good news, new album coming from Japandroids. Bad news, January. New single sounds pretty good. https://www.polyvinylrecords.com/product/near_to_the_wild_heart_o
Read the Shrimp news last night on the tweeter. Jax haters were hating cuz that's what they do. And admittedly, when I first saw it I thought, that's terrible. But I slept on it and woke up with a Jumbo Shrimp shaped and sized stiffy. I'm hoping this motivates someone in the Jags front office to at least rethink the helmets for next season.
Mark twat a photo of the Shrimp hat. Quite fly, although it sort of looks like the shrimp is holding a gun. Maybe that's intentional.
so apparently ian went viral yesterday, with his eleven likeness,. my students saw him on ifunny
So umm, just took the dog out for a poop. He pooped in neighbor's yard as he does. Dark out. Used phone to locate poop. Dropped phone right in the poop, screen side. Poop.
Just out of the gate, the Cubs appear to be ready to end the skid.
Cleveland sure is making a lot of mental and fundamental mistakes for a Franconia team.
that's a shame
from a fundamental mistake perspective
Still feels like the Cubs could lose this in a historically painful manner.
Less so now
Oh my goodness.
What z said.
That's what I'm sayin.
Let's not forget Chapman is a lady hitter. Hard to root for him.
Stop reading my comments, Joe Buck.
Kind of feel bad for Cuba fans. Not for Chapman though. Not in the least.
Cuba Gooding Jr.?
Maddon's gonna get skewered (more) for pitching Chapman last night.
For reals, Whit. It's possible Chapman would've spit the bit either way, but pitching him last night was D-U-M dumb.
Who here is all in until the end of this game?
i was, right until they pulled out the tarp. keep fighting the good fight.grady little thinks joe maddon's had a rough couple of nights.
Come on, little buddy. This is a sports memory in the making.
Fuck this rain delay.
Removing the tarp. Let's do this.
made it to the end after all. that was something. maddon is lucky as hell that his overmanagement didn't cost the cubs the series.
History was meant to be recorded
I woke up to see the last out.Now that the karma gods have taken care of the Cubs, they need to focus their energy on W&M basketball
