Random notes

So the Angels won, Lackey was good. GA homered. And, well, honestly, I didn't really see any of it. I was watching the Sox and Yankees, fell asleep, and the next thing I know, it's midnight. So I pretty much just slept all evening, which is why I'm awake on a Saturday before noon.

Anyway, you may have noticed a couple of new additions to the sidebar. First up is 3 Bulls!. Why are they called 3 Bulls!? Fuck if I know, because there's like seven of them, and that doesn't include PupH and Captain Trollypants. So head over and enjoy the antics of Pinko Punko, The Uncanny Canadian, Yosef, GregH, and my favorite, '?'. Also, they have links to the informative "song of the day", and the thought provoking "delicious or disgusting" (hint: It's delicious), where you can weigh in on your musical tastes and, well, taste tastes. They're funny, but a word of advice: Sometimes it's better not to let on that you have no idea what the hell they're talking about.

Also added is a link to Tuning Fork Media, which I admittedly stole from the Song of the Day blog. Tuning Fork exists to keep tabs on the uber-pretension of the guys at Pitchfork, and they add a little snark in the process. Also, they're gonna give me free stuff, which is more than I can say for the rest of you deadbeats. I will, say, however, that as good as that review of Pitchfork's review of the Warlocks album is, it's not as funny as Pitchfork's review of the Jet album, which I still think is a classic. Ironically, the PF review that TF spoofed was written by Nick Sylvester, who also wrote the Jet review.

And just a quick word about the coming dilemma. Work issues and MLB's douchebaggery will likely prevent me from a) watching playoff games that occur during daylight hours, and b) attending games that the Angels play against the White Sox. Just a note to forewarn. I'm not happy about it.

best Pitchfork review ever: Andrew WK

SO hilarious. John Sterling is going OFF on Showalter for pulling his regs against the Angels, and with Angles coming back against Texas, there's homefield for the first round. He's using words like "absolutely disgraceful" etc. Ha ha. Sterling is the owrst announcer in baseball. I had to switch over because WEEI is on the fritz.

I'm just glad they're playing the Yankees because that means no day games.
