This is still my favorite of these.
abloodymess: I think the shittiest music will be from the ICP/Jack White Camp. That said, I never thought of ICP other than a stupid joke and Jack White was merely just “good” to me. I don’t own a single record the guy put out, but I enjoyed The White Stripes enough to see them once and have enjoyed them on a casual level. I don’t even think they’re really...
we were winning 1-0!
Then we conceded a penalty in the 82nd minute. Still, we drew a Premiership team on the road and now they have to come to Bromley and replay this round! Where, I’ll point out, we beat them in the pre-season. I reckon we’re gonna get Journey to play before the match like the White Sox did in 2005. Also Redditch lost away to Blackburn so my Bromley team is now officially the last...
the library subscribes to science now
Whenever I meet people I didn’t know before, and they find out I work at the library, 90% of the time that’s the first thing they say to me. “Why don’t we get Science?,” they ask, because they don’t know I work in digital preservation and so have no control over this situation. “Because it’s really expensive and publishers are unreasonable,” I...

it’s quite good
If you guys are in the market for a truck that runs real quiet and probably gets good gas mileage, you should look at a Honda Ridgeline. I know this because one of them nearly hit me on my way home from town just now because I couldn’t even hear it behind me until it was two feet portside of me on my bike. Seems like a nice purchase if you’re into that sort of thing.
still feeling good about that bike
I don’t think it’s much of a secret that I don’t care for State College very much, but I’ll say this in its defense: in Chicago, I never would have seen that old bike again, and the police department wouldn’t have cared a bit when I called. Here they showed up in less than an hour and were very nice! Good on you, small town. You’re alright sometimes.
I saw a thing about it on the BBC once. I think there’s some deal in some of the cafes where if you’re there on a Sunday, Belgium and the Netherlands have different laws about when alcohol can be served, and there’s a few places that are right on the border where they can only serve it in half the restaurant. I don’t know if that’s true or even makes any sense, but I...
well that was weird!
Is this where I can complain about my goalkeeper in Football Manager? Okay so I signed this one kid off Leeds United after they released him, hoping he might be able to fill in the #1 position because the goalkeeper who was at Bromley when I started was too expensive so I had to ship him off to League Two. I gave him a few games last year but he had a tendency to let in one goal, get sad about...
So one of the teams at the Little League World Series is from Clinton County, 45 minutes up PA 150 from here, which in turn is 45 minutes away from Williamsport. Long story short, they played a game yesterday and 42,000 people showed up for it. That’s more people than go to Phillies games! Fun fact: the entire population of Clinton County is 39,000.
the nice thing about the celtic match today:
Win or lose, they’ll still make the group stage of the Europa League after Sion has to forfeit their place in the competition because of violations of FIFA transfer rules.
let me tell you, it's making my morning that today...

At City of Manchester Stadium they play “Transmission” at halftime. I don’t understand how anyone would ever support United when they could have that instead. Also the Swansea fans are singing the Welsh national anthem. I’m really happy a Welsh team is in the Premiership. I hope Cardiff can make it up next season.
It’s too bad I live on this side of the Atlantic instead of the side where Electrelane are playing shows all summer.

show on friday
Normally I’d be trying to come up with a silly song I could cover during soundcheck, but since we’re already only playing covers, I’ll probably end up just doing a Chairman Larry song. I hope I remember how they all go!
thedailywhat: Simpsons Did It of the Day: Officials with the Lee County Sheriff’s Office arrested multiple suspects charged with failing to pay thousands of dollars in child support by luring them in with the promise of free tickets to the Iron Bowl.
