Whiskey

I'm posting from DC this week...Knoxville next week.

Side bar off the Mize/Keef fued on driving times...How long is your commute to work? I've been very fortunate to never have had a commute of over 15 minutes in my life. After all that time I'm not sure I'd handle a long commute very well. I'm up in the DC area this week for a class, and I have some friends in the area that I've been visiting after the class lets out...during rush hour. Yeah, no long commute for Jug. I enjoy not having to spend two hours a day in traffic.

Facebook and Twitter had crickets after the Texans got beatdown by the Pats last Monday. Houston sports fans don't know how to handle the success of their teams very well, so they become instantly obnoxious when their team does well. I actually don't mind the Texans, but find myself rooting against them just to shut their fans up sometimes.

IN YOU PHACE, Rev!

I wonder if this internet thing will ever catch on. Access to too much information is not always a good thing. Cmjug, while I love her to death, is one of those who likes to research medical symptoms on the interwebs and assume the worst. Not good times.

On the agenda for 2013...see Willie Nelson in concert. The dude is old and I want to see him concert before he dies, or before I jump off another bridge. Who knows how that would turn out. Also...maybe the George Strait show at the rodeo since he is retiring.

An angel flight is a flight carrying the casket of a fallen soldier, sailor, marine, or airman. That link is to a good song written by a good song writer about angel flights.

Crown Royal makes a maple flavored whiskey...have you tried it? tasty on the rocks!

Its always interesting listening to local sports talk in different cities. "Will the Ravens even make the playoffs?!?!" Also...as much as everyone loves RGIII...apparently he is a god in the DC area...and in mize's new apartment. When is the move in date?

Do you need help moving? /Cubs chick

cubs chick = mythical beast

That's it...go!

17 minutes. Straight shot west on HWY 60, no traffic to deal with.

Keef said...

You live for semantics


So I'm right?

Keef said...

"How long is your commute to work? I've been very fortunate to never have had a commute of over 15 minutes in my life."



Anywhere for an hour to an hour and a half

Suite, I got David Wilson & LIONS! D

Keef said...

I guess I whatta gotta start Maclin tonight. Shorts is Q, Amendola is Q. Lloyd is Q.

Keef said...

Mize, re: the commute shit. No tembagging at all, I truly don't understand your logic.

NS

Meiz said...

The 4 and a half year tembag continues

EL PICKS said...

Keith is technically correct

Meiz is more accurate



you won't get there at the *exact* same time, but leaving an hour earlier to arrive 2 minutes earlier is redonk; it's still 2 minutes earlier than you otherwise would have arrived, but very negligible time saved v. extra time expended to save time

EL PICKS said...

"How long is your commute to work? I've been very fortunate to never have had a commute of over 15 minutes in my life."


generally 30 minutes, mostly 70 mph highway w/ little to no traffic, so it's not bad (other than mileage/gas)

from 2009-2011 I was commuting out to another office once a week though, that was a 2 hour drive each way....fuck I hated that

Meiz said...

"I guess I whatta gotta start Maclin tonight. Shorts is Q, Amendola is Q. Lloyd is Q."

Apparently I dropped Maclin last week, which is great, but I don't remember doing it.

Meiz said...

Kod, my sister says thank you for your words yesterday.

Evidently, her workplace has legal consultation services available to employees, so she's going to seek their advice, too.

EL PICKS said...

not a problem at all, I'm glad she has a resource like that available

BLUE said...

commute = 25 minutes to work, hour home

BLUE said...

i know this will be hard for keith to understand...

but if I leave here at 5 I get home at 6. If I leave here at 5:30, I get home at 6.

BLUE said...

so i try and leave at 4:30 everyday

Meiz said...

"not a problem at all, I'm glad she has a resource like that available"

Yeah, that's kinda the bomb.

BLUE said...

dat

I never argued against the fact that leaving later would mean a shorter commute, timewise. Just saying that leaving 10 minutes later would not get you home earlier or at the same time as if you had left 10 minutes earlier

Keef said...

I've become a fan of the Lumineers. That's my flavor of the week band

tem said...

if you love someone to death are you trying to kill them? is it until their death or your death?

i don't understand this saying.

Keef said...

And I was never much a fan of Rusted Root, but they've started to grow on me a little bit

Keef said...

if you love someone to death are you trying to kill them? is it until their death or your death?



I've always taken this as you love them until your* dead

BLUE said...

rusted root is a-ok by me

tem said...

20 minute drive on a good day

30 minute drive on a normal day

45 minute drive on a bad day

75 minute drive on a terrible day


i have about 5 routes to choose from, so usually i can keep it under 60 minutes regardless of weather or traffic situations.

tem said...

rusted root is still around?

they were cool in pittsburgh when i was in hike school.

BLUE said...

sounds like the big east is toast

i would guess the 7 schools that want to leave will just dissolve the conference so they don't have to pay a buyout to leave.

tem said...

the remaining conference members will probably agree to waive the buyout fee in exchange for not dissolving the conference.

EL PICKS said...

rusted root is still around?


yeah, my rr knowledge begins and ends with 1995 and send me on my way (or whatever the name is)

EL PICKS said...

"sounds like the big east is toast"


maybe the pope will intervene, like Obama with college football playoffs

El Padrino said...

A10 is new big east in basketball

Keef said...

rusted root is still around?


Yeah but the shit I've been listening to is older

tem said...

well i started listening to it in 1995 and you started in 2012, but we finished at the same time somehow.

The show was excellent, the crowd was absolutely horrible.

"no country. it sucked"

Country doesn't have megastars. Suck it.

El Padrino said...

next time someone plots to kill bieber please let them do it

thanks

El Padrino said...

the crowd was absolutely horrible.

suite bait

"Country doesn't have megastars. Suck it."

i was unaware that the concert in question was megastars. i thought it was a who's who of has beens and barely weres.

Keef said...

Did they have a fundraising concert after Katrina?

El Padrino said...

Who's who and has beens don't die in the music world tem

they are mega stars

yes

yeah except it was all rappers and fans of rappers have no money so it didn't earn anything. /blhitler

Springsteen was awesome

Eric Church sang Springsteen?

El Padrino said...

Meiz said...

"not sure why Kanye was there"

Best in the business, and his set was fire.

Keef said...

not sure why Kanye was there



He didn't want to look like a hypocrite

El Padrino said...

easy killer

blame the rich folf

the crowd was filled with first responders, service men and women and rich folk

El Padrino said...

kanye chills huh meiz

El Padrino said...

"He didn't want to look like a hypocrite"


he did "All of the Lights"

what a slap in the face

You're a sensitive bitch about this right now. It was a concert.

Meiz said...

I'm sorry. That was mean.

El Padrino said...

"You're a sensitive bitch about this right now. It was a concert."

Part s, but parts ns

aja, you couldnt pick one of the hundred or so other songs in your catalogue?

El Padrino said...

they are replaying the concerts

Keef said...

do you have FUSE or Palladium?



Shit drains my battery

El Padrino said...

i'm sorry but i like Coldplay

i know sometimes it's slit your wrists music but i like it

Meiz said...

"aja, you couldnt pick one of the hundred or so other songs in your catalogue?"

All Of The Lights is a toothless song. Arguably the weakest cut from MBDTF.

El Padrino said...

new york state of mind, live, for a hurricane benefit concert

shit was so dope

im much more billy joel than i am bruce

El Padrino said...

"All Of The Lights is a toothless song. Arguably the weakest cut from MBDTF."

Oh, that's not true. I like them just fine for what they are. I do prefer music that has a little more grime on it though.

Keef said...

maybe hates was a strong word

Keef said...

but muzak snob is accurate

Meiz said...

Oh, also pop music. Love that shit

Meiz said...

"but muzak snob is accurate"

Yeah, I'll take it. I don't mind.

BLUE said...

meiz is that guy with music.

Meiz said...

I think music is an excellent way to enrich your life, so I take exception with people that are always listening to the wrong shit for the wrong reasons.

BLUE said...

you know that guy


the one who always likes the obscure songs nobody else knows by the popular artists. that guy will tell you why you shouldn't like the songs you like, and tells you who is better than your favorite artists. He'll be the one who tells you how much better a band was before they "sold out", and name all their b-sides and unknown crap that nobody likes.

there's nothing wrong with that guy. hell i'm probably that guy with a few bands, like Pearl Jam and Foo Fighters.

BLUE said...

"I think music is an excellent way to enrich your life"


music is a way to entertain yourself 4 minutes at a time.

I don't know anybody who isn't a douchebag who says 'wow, that song that artist wrote, changed the way I live my life'

BLUE said...

and any artist who says that aren't in the business for the money or fame is full of shit.

if that was the case, you'd just write music and hang out in your garage with your buddies playing it for yourself.

BLUE said...

Django unchained uses the "N" word, a lot

Keef said...

I think music is an excellent way to enrich your life, so I take exception with people that are always listening to the wrong shit for the wrong reasons.



I would imagine that's way deeper than 90% of people think. I agree with what blue said, people don't listen to a song and have it change their life. It's entertainment. It doesn't require any thinking. I understand songs have meaning, but most people listen to music because the way it sounds entertains them, not because of the words that are in the song

Meiz said...

Like don't feed me some bullshit line about why you think song x is so freaking deep or what this means about that when you don't have anything your basing those conclusions on.

If you like some shit just because you like it and it entertains you, cool. Just say that and I'll let you cook. Just don't bullshit me, that's all.

Meiz said...

"It's entertainment. It doesn't require any thinking. I understand songs have meaning, but most people listen to music because the way it sounds entertains them, not because of the words that are in the song"


Exactly! But people would rather lie about just being entertained.

BLUE said...

gotchya

i'm cool with that Meiz

BLUE said...

like I won't tell you that Phil Phillips corny song makes me cry everytime I hear it, and has such a deep emotional connection for me.


but i like the song

Woah there. That ain't me. I don't tell people what they should or should not listen to. That's their choice. Sometimes I just want to know why they like what they like. I like finding out what makes people tick.

Even as Mexico's top transportation official said the plane carrying Jenni Rivera spiraled to the ground in a tailspin that may have surpassed 600 mph, some of the singer's family members were holding out hope on Wednesday
In California, the Mexican-American singer's mother said her grandchildren still think Rivera is alive.
"They continue thinking that their mother is OK, that God could perform a miracle," said Rosa Saavedra, noting she was trying to stay strong to support them.

Welp, there goes my solution

Keef said...

I really hate having to put my eggs in Maclin's basket on a Thursday night

tem said...

TB sucks against the pass. that is why nobody runs on them.

they aren't that good against the run really, its just people choose to pass because passing on them is so easy.

Keef said...

I'm leaning on Wilson, Leshoure, Martin.
Sproles is too hit or miss. Hate having to rely on a RB that gets < 5 carries a game.

Meiz said...

"I really hate having to put my eggs in Maclin's basket on a Thursday night"

Same here with Bryce Brown. This game could be make or break for me. I just want about 16 out of Brown.

Keef said...

I've got Garcon, I hope RG3 plays

Keef said...

Fucking Bryce Brown. Fuck that asshole.

Keef said...

In the game I tied last weekend and ended up losing the tiebreaker, Brown got me 0

I'm relying heavily on the Buccaneers this week.

Doug Martin, Mike Williams, Dallas Clark, and Connor Barth.

Pickt* up Shorts midseason. He was averaging like 20-25 before he got concussed. I finished tied for first, had the most points in the league by more than 100.
Judging by how your $ team did, I'll take your dig as a complement.

Keef said...

i think those are his choices after WR#1 and WR #2



I have Cruz, Garcon, Maclin, Lloyd, Amendola, Shorts.

Keef said...

I'm using a RB at flex. Unless Shorts or Amendola can play. Then I may end up playing one of them. Also, Bradshaw's status will contribute

Keef said...

lloyd is always Q, always plays, would just be worried about him sucking



Yeah I know he'll play. Against, SF. 0% I'll put him in the lineup

El Padrino said...

N.F.L. Playoff Expansion: No One Seems to Be Asking for It

Commissioner Roger Goodell said after an N.F.L. ownership meeting on Wednesday.

Via Brad Biggs, writing for The National Football Post:

“Of course, something that we discussed in the past is expanded playoffs. That is something that we teed up today. We will probably be looking at it with the committee over the next several months. Right now, we are at 12 teams, obviously. We will look at probably 14 or 16. The committee will be looking at that.”

Surprise: Soda isn't good for your body. And here's another thing to add to the shit-list against soft drinks: brominated vegetable oil, which is in Gatorade. The ingredient's purpose is to keep the fruit flavor evenly distributed, but it contains bromine, a potentially dangerous element. Though it's been used since the thirties, studies have linked bromine to brain, fertility, and thyroid problems as well as early-onset puberty (especially terrifying since Gatorade’s the drink of choice for Little Leagues everywhere). According to the Times, the FDA hasn't reviewed this additive since 1977 because of a policy loophole article
