Re: Well then

It's also depressing just how many state and even local races were about national issues, often ones that hardly impact that given area, instead of more pressing and immediate matters. Florida's gubernatorial race was essentially about the president and whatever you want to call the Bernie Sanders w...

Re: Songs you should listen to

Damn I love Dispatch. (Also known as: "That band that made the song The General that was everywhere in the early 2000s")

Re: 2018-10-15 Show Ranking

There's also a weird, I guess you'd call it pride people have in their opinions now, like we're all tastemakers and seasoned critics. Something's warped about all of it. I understand not enjoying something, but to believe people who do enjoy it shouldn't just seems like the kind of thing that makes ...

Re: 2018-10-15 Show Ranking

It was cathartic to watch Greg unleash that post. Welcome back. I don't understand the whole thing where fans of something reserve the right to get all mad about a new iteration of that thing. Two reasons. 1: Oh, you like the old version more? This is the internet, you can very easily go watch TOS o...

Re: What's your job?

Were I brave enough and more well-versed in serious topics, I'd join the real journalists in a time when they're needed more than ever before.

Instead I'm a kind of coward, happy to have an audience of barflies and golfers with very little at stake.

Re: Son of Rantettes & Ravettes

Rave: I moved to Florida a couple months ago. Rant: I've wanted to write one of my long-winded posts about it, but it's really hard for me to put the whole story into words. Anyway, rave: I was born very close to where I live now and have always loved the Tampa Bay area. I miss the Hell out of Bosto...

National Anthem Protests

I can't help it, I need to say this somewhere. I'm not sure there could possibly be anything new to contribute on the whole NFL national anthem protests, but here goes: 1: If you are overly offended that a protest that isn't at all about the flag or the anthem hurt either of them, consider listening...

Re: Who watches Doctor Who

It's on my cable. I just DVR it.

Congratulations to the upcoming next Doctor, and I hope the people who get mad whenever a woman is cast in any role are having the worst day of their lives. So long as they keep providing the fun for fun's sake, I'm always going to be in.

Re: Randomness

"star stuff" would be even better.

While we're on the subject of nerd pickup lines, I feel like "Sudo go out with me" would be a good one, but it might cross a legal line depending on where you live and how directly people take words there.

Re: The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Still playing through it, but this ought to sum up my feelings.

Also my feelings on Gorons in general. Most games could use more Gorons.

Re: Son of Rantettes & Ravettes

Rant/Rave/Taco: As a sportswriter based in Boston who writes for a Florida-based website, is a baseball expert, and has an affinity for the Boston Red Sox, let me say that May 1/2, 2017 are a pair of extremely long, weird days. And I mean "weird" in a true Hunter S. Thompson sense. Rant/Rave/Buy The...
