  • March Madness Bracket

    Whoa Roy Williams is retiring from UNC. End of an amazing career.

    I moved to Chapel Hill soon after he was hired, got to be in NC for the "golden years" - 05 and 09 championships. Was at UNC for grad school during part of that stretch so was lucky enough to see some great games at the Dean Done.

    Will be interesting to see who the successor is!

  • RIP in 2021

    RIP Beverly Clearly ...104! She (along with Judy Blume) was such an important writer for me growing up.

  • WinterFalcon Spoiler Thread

    I’ve seen a handful of people saying it’s jarring or weird that Falcon is just killing people and I’m so confused. Soldiers sometimes kill people, especially when those people are terrorists who hijack a military plane and kidnap an intelligence liaison and are taking him to hostile airspace. I don’t know what the alternative is supposed to be. Cap’s bodycount is certainly nothing to sneeze at at this point either, that’s kinda what I expect from these military-based heroes.

    I think what was jarring to some is that the "Cap Trilogy" (especially the last 2) was to some degree an interrogation of the military and American foreign policy and Cap reconciling his role in it. So maybe would have thought Falcon wouldn't have been jumping right into doing off-books military ops, racking up a body count, right after the un-blippining. Maybe the point is that he doesn't really have any other way to make a living, which could be an interesting theme in the show.

  • Last Movie You Saw & What Did you Think

    Was browsing around HBO Max, and ended up watching Max Mad: Fury Road for the first time in a few years. Goddamn this movie holds up. Not a wasted frame. Watched with my headphones on, having that immersive sound is a great experience.

  • What are you eating?

    Fried chicken sandwiches. Marinated the chicken in pickle juice before frying. Nom nom.
