Linkatharsis: Not going out of business

  • Soccer's Li'l Baby Jesus whines about playing time. You know, I remember getting into a sideline argument with my JV soccer coach over getting subbed out of a game, but I was 14 years old and I didn't know any better. But shit, Freddy's a grown ass 16-year-old. Suck it up, I say.

  • Death Cab live on NPR, Monday 10/24.

  • I'm sure there's enough written about yesterday's NY Times Rachael Ray feature that was as ample as her bosoms, but I'll add my two cents.

    I have said before that she's great on paper yet somehow, her whole doesn't quite add up to the sum of her parts. But in her defense, most people who criticize her (beyond the obvious stuff like her voice and gratuitous acronyms) are missing the point. She's no Morimoto, sure. But really, her M.O. is about getting people who grew up on takeout and TV dinners to cook - it's not supposed to be fancy or low fat. The idea is to keep it simple and non threatening. She does achieve her goal and she is good at what she does, whether you like what she does or not. Shit, it could be worse - have you ever watched Sandra Lee's Semi-Homemade?

  • Some people don't think it's such a good idea for a transit authority that has major infrastructure problems and a looming budget deficit to be giving out discounted fares. Crazy, I know.
