REAL TALK – 1/19/09

2009 January 19

Watching Band of Brothers makes me feel like a goddamn pussy.

I feel like I’m not using the internet to its full potential if uTorrent isn’t active.

I wonder if Cal Ripken Jr. felt like an asshole breaking the record of a guy with a fatal, incurable neurodegenerative disease. He should’ve. Lou Gehrig >>>>>>>> Cal Ripken Jr.

Joaquin Phoenix is a greater comedic genius than Sasha Baron Cohen. If you haven’t realized this already, you will soon know, along with the rest of the world.

The new toolbar for Windows 7 is pretty cool, particularly pinning program icons, which renders quick launch obsolete. Stealing from Apple is sometimes for the best.

I don’t think I “get” Kurt Vonnegut.

You’re supposed to start hating snow as you get older, but I still love every snowfall. Maybe if I lived upstate or in Wisconsin I’d feel differently. But then I’d be an idiot.

I want to rescind my endorsement of Fangraphs, as they now have calculated win values and market value for pitchers, in addition to their values for players. They have Gil Meche being worth more than Johan Santana last year. That is objectively wrong. Fuck them.

They should’ve had the Presidential Inauguration today. I’m not usually a fan of this type of sentimental crap, but swearing in the first black president on Martin Luther King Jr. Day would’ve been pretty cool. If you are black, please comment on this thought. Whiteys need not respond.
