  • MrX said: Not sure if there are any other Red Sox fans here, but Jerry Remy, their long time color commentator (he also played 2nd base for them back in the day), passed. He was the voice of the Sox for me pretty much all my life, will be mis…
  • cdrive said: Ok here is my sw roadtrip playlist so far and I’d like to now shamelessly ask for some recommendations cause I know we got some tasty takes here. And it’d make me smile on the road when a great tune comes on someone suggested tha…
  • Chinaski said: Seth Brown wasn't wearing ankle weights tonight!  boom! not tonight Keke! Andriese is such trash, the run-saving throw from JD should have been enough. Good on the A's bullpen outlasting ours though.
  • cdrive said:Also my wife 2 days ago had a work interaction with someone from there and she asked her about Wawa hoagies. This lady closed her eyes and started fanning her neck talking about how she has had them shipped to her.  This seems cr…
  • lengmo said: cdrive said: I need to listen to The Watch you mentioned [...] Just be aware the first few times they talk about they show they are rather fixated by the regional band referenced in the show which has a funny name.  On…
  • I've been re-watching as well and something that stands out to me is the noises Gandolfini makes. I can't tell if it's ADR, boosted in production, or maybe he's just that loud, but all sniffs, breaths, and mouth sounds really amplify his various sta…
  • Garthgou81 said: I hopped back into Borderlands 3 after taking a break. This is not a good game. But it is a fun way to listen to podcasts while grinding through missions. Especially when the dialogue and characters are pretty annoying.  I…
  • cdrive said: Nice. Stand By Me. Kinda like It recently being redone, a seemingly untouchable Stephen King classic. Disney’s animated Robin Hood going live action or a modern animation remake.  I shudder and also yeah I’d probably need to se…
  • Anaconda Wayne's World Tommy Boy and/or Black Sheep Also big war epics: Saving Private Ryan, Enemy at the Gates, Braveheart
  • I liked this episode well enough since I like Rabbi Milligan as a character and I think Calamita is an interesting villain (wish we saw more of this). But I think I'm becoming hardened against these kinds of gimmicky episodes, and find myself more c…
  • Speaking of The Jesus and Mary Chain, Hope Sandoval's version of Drop is an all-time favorite for me.
  • Not a huge Bob Seger fan, but I love "Against the Wind" by The Highwaymen (Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings, and Kris Kristofferson)
  • I've been pretty meh on this season so far, but I really enjoyed this one. A lot of good TImothy Olyphant work, though I'm not sure how consequential he ended up being. I'm more interested in the Fadda brothers working together, but it's kind of und…
  • What's the opposite of doom scrolling? Cause it's making me feel pretty good.

  • Gritty memes have gotten me through the week. At dawn look to the east...
  • The cold open this week bummed me the fuck out. Our minds are fragile and vulnerable and it's kind of terrifying.
  • I had YoutubeTV at $50 a month as well and it was at the sweet spot where it was more then I should pay for how little I watch live TV, but nice enough to keep. I canceled at the price jump. $15 a month to get the Viacom channels I didn't want when …
  • Damn, I'm not that invested in buying at launch, but reaaally want to play Cyberpunk 2077. With that game coming out a week after PS5 launch it seems dumb to get it on PS4, when I know I'll eventually get PS5. Going to be a tough decision to wait ti…
  • No great loss there. This already show took itself too seriously, but they somehow straddled the line of also being trashy fun in season one. Season two was just dull, I couldn't get through it.
  • Heard about this a while ago when it was at Sundance, but just now seeing the trailer. They had me at Carrie Coon and Jude Law. The Nest, out in September:
  • I was trying to respond to why I like Darjeeling Limited so much and it got me thinking about how one of the things I enjoy most about Wes Anderson is his use of soundtrack to create scenes. The scores are always great, but I think the more song mom…
  • The Royal Tenenbaums The Darjeeling Limited w/ Hotel Chevalier prologue - that Peter Sarstedt song is so good + Natalie Portman The Life Aquatic Bottle Rocket Moonrise Kingdom Last two are kind of a toss, it's a lower tier after Life Aquatic. Rushm…

  • The mustard hate is honestly pretty wild to me.
  • That duck looks sketchy as fuck. Clearly trying to play us for a better meal. Bread is the only food that rots?
  • Pretty excited to hear Rilo Kiley is re-issuing their first "album". I think I had the Initial Friend EP version that I got off of soulseek back in the day (probably on an old iPod or hard drive somewhere), but I haven't heard most of these songs in…
  • @Murderbear That's dope! I dig the bossa nova style beat.
  • @cdrive I've been in a bit of a rut musically lately, man. I think not having many opportunities to drive has curtailed my music intake/choices. Mostly been playing a lot of sad alt-country/folk stuff, Neil Young, early Dylan, John Prine, Townes Van…
  • Ass play is me acknowledging the "group." I realize I'm probably not "in" and that's why I say I like to "watch." It's not because it's exclusive though, I engage as the little as I want on the forums cause that's my preference. There are a bunch of…
