Pedantic Moment: Only American Teams Have Won The World Series?
British comedian, Eddie Izzard, has a routine in which he jokes about America’s streak of winning the World Series. He’s impressed that no other country has won has ever won this “world” event.
Um, Eddie? Look up who won the World Series in 1992 and 1993.
Never Found In The 80s: King Crimson Connections Week
I did another week long series focusing on musical artists that all have a certain connection. This time that connection was King Crimson. I recruited fellow 80s Nation member, Douglas Arthur (host of the Assault of the 2-Headed Space Mules podcast) to help me with this series. He’s much more knowledgeable about King Crimson than I.
For King Crimson connections week, we profiled the following artists:
I’m A Hateful, Flag Waving What Now?
It is the internet and when you voice an opinion, you’re bound to get insulted. Not every time, but it does happen.
It happen to me when I commented on a Facebook friend posting of a video of an alleged moment of police brutality.
I commented: “This is the problem with these amateur videos. Not only is it in the hateful portrait format, the person taking the video doesn’t keep the camera on the action, so we don’t see the start of the confrontation.”
That’s all I wrote.
Another commenter apparently saw through my statement to what I was really saying. He wrote, “Hateful, flag waving, ignorant, human skid marks like Jim Fitzsimons reveal their true nature every time. Probably punches his wife and beats his dog. Probably runs in the family.”
Is this guy spying on me?
Movie Recommendation: Some Kind Of Monster (2004)
This documentary about the metal band, Metallica, suffers from three things: 1) Way too long at two hours and twenty minutes. 2) Way too much talking about their feelings. (They were going through group therapy at the time.) 3) Way too much Metallica music.
Other than those things, I did find the film interesting. If you are a Metallica fan, you might find this much more enjoyable than I did.
Not much of a recommendation, is it?
