What's the worst name you've ever given to a song?
I don’t know, I don’t have a witty reply for this one. My song titles are super boring. It’s usually the first 2 or 3 word phrase or pun that pops into my head, because they almost always get renamed before they get published.
"Under The Banner Of Kevin" still makes me laugh, but I’m not sure why.
Indifferent. It’s fun to listen to fantasy call-in shows where people ask about who to play, but I would never last a full season without getting bored with it or forgetting to set my rosters or something.
What's more important to you; seeing the Vikings loose or seeing Tim Tebow lose?
Tim Tebow is irrelevant to me. He’s bulletproof. He’s a terrible NFL quarterback, but you can’t say anything to insult him because of the Jesus-colored glasses. The shine will wear off. The Broncos will still suck.
I have had mine for years but am just now getting the courage to use it so it is fresh out of the box, essentially. Do I need to do anything first? I see some people talking about covering it an oil and heating it, kind of like a cast iron skillet?
I never did, but that doesn’t really mean anything. The only thing I’d worry about with oil is smoke and an off-flavor, because you’re going to be exposing that thing to some extreme temps
Do you cook with a baking stone and if so did you season yours in the oven before using it? I am finding a lot of conflicting reports online.
For oven-fired pizza, a stone is ESSENTIAL. Crank your oven as high as it will go, hopefully 500F or above, and leave the stone in there for 20 minutes before sliding the dough on. Use a handful of corn meal to keep the dough from sticking.
My stone has a deep brown stain in the middle from crisping pizza dough. I never wash it, only rinse it occasionally.
As for bread, I understand a stone is necessary, but I can’t speak with any authority, because I am CRAP at baking bread.
Steve Jobs was a visionary, a brilliant innovator who reshaped entire industries by the force of his will, a genius at giving consumers not only what they wanted, but what they didn’t yet know they wanted.
can’t say i don’t respect that because shit, it’s life, but you probably spent 5 minutes writing that up, maybe instead of responding to jackasses like me you could watch that second season of louie next time, it’s like twice as good as the first one
You bring up a good point, and it gets to the heart of my increasing apathy.
Lately, I can’t bring myself to actually care about most things.
I am capable of enjoying things, I’m capable of wanting things, I find myself getting excited about things, but ultimately I find myself asking does anything really matter?
Do I want to see Season 2 of Louie? Yes, I really do. Will anything really be different if I don’t? Of course not- so then why move it up my “To Do” list?
If my wife and I buy a new house with enough land for me to build my workshop, that matters. That changes things. Trying to write enough music so that my daughter never has to say “we can’t afford that”, that matters. My obsessions matter.
"Louie" isn’t going anywhere. "Community" isn’t going anywhere. If it’s that good, I’ll watch it years from now, when I have all of the other things I want. If it’s not, well, it didn’t matter.
P.S.: this post is no longer about you, bethrest, it’s about working my own stuff out. And that’s ok.
57 episodes x 22 min. per episode/60 mins per hour = 20.9 hrs. i’d wager you probably spend that per month browsing tumblr, but you seem like the kind of person(old) who would hate community anyway, so why bother. just watch louie and cry instead
LOL! This is the best. You seem to have some very strong opinions about my television habits.
Tell you what: you’re right, I spend AT LEAST that on Tumblr per month, and if THAT hasn’t gotten me to at least be curious about Community, nothing will.
Also, you’re right, I AM old, and if there’s anything advertisers HATE, it’s a 30-something with spending money.
I spent about twelve hours on Thursday and Friday nights watching Friends. It’s a really funny show.
There’s something wrong with us if this in unpopular opinion. Friends is the funniest show (not best). Seinfeld was funny, but cold and heartless, supposedly a strength but actually made it less funny for me.
I COULD GO ON, SIRS AND LADIES!
really? this is an unpopular opinion? we own the entire series on dvd and have watched at least 1 episode per night basically since we got married. that’s 5+ years and each viewing is still as funny as the last. who doesn’t like friends?
The notion that Friends is a bad show is borne out of the fact that it came of age along with a generation that felt that popular=”selling out” and that you had to be subversive to be “good”. Friends was starting just as grunge was being co-opted. I don’t see this as being entirely a coincidence. As with Stone Temple Pilots, the magnitude of the criticisms leveled against Friends were unfair and tainted with cooler-than-thou arrogance. Almost 20 years later, it’s easy to see why Friends was so popular- it was funny, the characters were relatable, and it’s ENDLESSLY re-watchable (ask the cast members about their residual checks, they’ll tell you). Is it Mr. Show? Of course not, but that’s not what it was menat to be. I would say “Name me 5 network sitcoms that were entertaining for even close to as long as Friends was”, but I’m not even remotely interested in that tiresome debate.
In my experience, getting a storage unit leads nowhere good. It eventually becomes the physical manifestation of your subconscious (ie where you put all the stuff you don’t want to see) and that can get ugly if yr not careful, dude.
Luckily, it currently houses a lot of stuff we’ll be wanting come spring (boat, kayaks, moped, bike carrier), so we’ll have to face it head on before it gets too bad.
