    The Concert Thread

    It's summertime, which means outdoor music festivals, so this seems like a good idea. Plus it'll probably be cool to post set lists and shit like that. So, who are you guys going to see this summer?

    Magazine Subscriptions

    I get Sports Illustrated. I enjoy it. My parents get Time and sometimes I flip through it when they're done to see if there's anything interesting.

    MLB Mock Draft

    Thus far, I think 909 has the best team.

    Shit I have to read for High School

    I figured I'd make a thread for this because it's kind of a downer when right in the middle of a drama-filled Secret Life chat I interrupt an Ashley Juergens monologue to see if anyone's read Fast Food Nation. Plus, I think TSM has a pretty high number of teachers and I'm for whatever reasons always interested in hearing what they teach... Anyway, I was just assigned "Amusing Ourselves to Death" by Neil Postman. I have no idea what this is. Any good? Should I actually read this? The nearest book store is legitimately 20 minutes away (welcome to North Florida) and it's a shitty book store at that. Is it worth the money in gas it takes to get over there?

    Billy Hamilton He'll play center and bat leadoff. Hit for .344 career and got on at a .455 clip. 912 career steals. 2,000 hits, 1,000 runs. And according to baseball reference, he was never caught stealing! 912 for 912!

    Shit I have to read for High School

    I just started "Amusing Ourselves To Death". I'm supposed to have it read/annotated/done an initial reading assignment by 10 am tomorrow. I put a pot of coffee on. I used to kick myself for putting off these books, but now I kind of find these nights fun. Sleep is lame. UPDATE: Five chapters done! And it's been what, an hour and a half? Maybe an hour and 45? I overestimated the amount of time this would take. Suck my dick, Neil Postman. Anyway, this book is pretty interesting. Some of his ideas are kind of retarded, but some are pretty cool. They're all interesting though. I mean, likening eye glasses to designer babies is a stretch and really contrived, but it's a pretty interesting thought, kind of. I like his idea that politics are just a never-ending loop of news. That's kinda cool. UPDATE AGAIN: I finished! Yay! And I liked this one! Fast Food Nation sucked and Walden bored me to tears, but this one was fun. I even finished the assignment that goes with it. I listened to "Fillmore Jive" to celebrate, just for the part that goes "I neeeeeeed to sleeeeeep"

    I've been waiting for McCovey to go. That dude rules.

    SS, Barry Larkin. In a way I'm glad Youth N Asia picked Ozzie Smith, because I wasn't sure if I wanted to pick him and miss out on Harmon Killebrew, or take Killebrew and get the superior hitter in Larkin later (not that Larkin was a slouch with the glove), so Youth N Asia sorta made that decision for me. There are still two or three guys I'm really afraid aren't going to fall to me this week, but that's kind of the idea of this draft, isn't it?

    Bob, did you miss the whole Kelvin Sampson deal? That's what happened.

    The Agent of Oblivion question of the day

    My family gets along really really well. Both sides, although I'm much closer to my mom's side. We all love each other. Fuck you guys and your dysfunction. But if I have to pick one, I'll take my dad's brother's daughter (I felt like I had to be more specific than "cousin"). She's just really loud and I don't like going to restaurants with her. I remember when we were 7 or 8 (not that anyone should be held accountable for dumb things they did when they were 7) we went out to eat at a restaurant and she ordered a kid's pizza as an appetizer, and then the same pizza as an entree. 10 years later though, that story is more endearing than aggravating.

    I liked the Roy/Sakic/Forseberg Avalanche, particularly because that coincided with the Rangers being absolutely terrible.

    The NFL OT Rule

    There are no shootouts in the playoffs. Whatever happened to the "first team to 6 points" idea from a few years ago? I really liked that idea, although Czech's "college + kickoffs" seems to combine the excitement of college with the common sense that a professional sport craves.
