The Fucking Champs

Posted: October 16, 2012 in Fridge Note, Wa fuckin Ha

Foul-mouthed blogging has a long history:

Teaching kids the bird.  I am so impressed.

Also, fuck anybody who can sleep like this:

Finally, I spent the morning at one of my client’s request, judging a Senior Design project at MSOE; they were to design a birdhouse in the style of a famous architect, and build a model.  It was kind of a hoot, and saw some people from my college days.  But it reminded me that the real reason for this career is here:

After all the hell and savagery of the process, the money finally started flowing and something is getting built.  That’s a duplex and single family infilling part of a residential block.  Another couple of months and they will be ready to provide a home to blue collar families, and help move along the gentle mending of a neighborhood decimated by poverty and long-term neglect.

 

Edit, for that Bimler fella, who seems to be Unaware Of Internet Traditions (the actual phrase is PICS or it didn’t happen) two of the projects that I liked:

    Wow, this comment thread is like a non-Zardoz zardozing. Where is Sean Connery in hooker boots when we need him?

  2. blue girl says:

    Yes, could you please update your weblog.

    Demanding common taters are demanding.

    And just posting a Mekons video with an impenetrable title is not an acceptable solution…

  4. John Darnielle, last night at the merch table :

    ZRM: How cool, you did that Black Sabbath album for 33 1/3
    John: Thanks
    Z: I have a friend (the legendary J Neo Marvin) who submitted a proposal for a Mekons album.
    John: There NEEDS to be a Mekons book!
    Z: Absolutely!
    John: Preferably Retreat From Memphis!!

    Z: —

    John Darnielle, Mekons not-poseur.

    Posting a Mekons’ video with an impenetrable title is acceptable. Commentary on teh Donald is preferred. There’s also this election thingie coming up. Might be of passing interest.

    Zito vs. Verlander. You can’t tell me you’re so dead inside (and outside) that you won’t watch that. World Series, Game 1, a few miles up the road from mikeyHQ. But just to be safe, I’ll be back in a few hours to let you know how it went….

  7. mikey says:

    So Zito beat their asses into submission, while the Panda hit THREE balls outta the park, this being AT&T Park where you CAN’T hit it out, and they snivelled and went home for the night…

  8. mikey says:

    Hey, I promised I’d come back and tell you what happened, and being a man of my word (mostly, except when I’m not n shit), there I was, half in the bag with a Tiger-eating grin on my mug…

  9. The election, Nick?

    Tammy Baldwin: beating Thompson.
    Obama: winning in Wisconsin.
    My Rep is Gwen moore, so I am well covered.

    Now, if Beege can deliver Ohio, we’re in good shape.

    Besides, the title of the post was just straight-up Brando bait. I am gonna move the goal posts and refuse to put up a new post until he responds. Yeah, that’s the ticket.

  10. Also, Traveling Salesman joke thread at BG’s!

    I think the polls are misleading – not intentionally, mind you, but a combination of factors including limited use of cell phones, over representation of white people and people who believe they won’t vote for Obama but when the time comes they will anyway.

    Obama wins by 4-6% and a whole buncha electoral votes.

    A great big chunk of people are frightened by the far right wing craziness, the gold buggery, the conspiracy theories, the theocratically-driven ideology, the blatant bigotry and misogyny, the fanatic devotion to wealth inequality and the upward redistribution of wealth. Another great big chunk of people simply don’t trust Mitt Romney because he’s just lied to blatantly and too often.

    I think it’s reasonable to assume that a decent candidate with mainstream policy agenda could have beaten Barack Obama this year, but the loonies are running the asylum and that was never in the cards.

    Oh, the voter suppression efforts will account for 1-2% of the popular vote, but it only has an affect on the outcome if the election is a lot closer than this one is going to turn out to be….

    Hey, lookit that. How often do you see somebody get it right AND wrong in the same sentence?

    That’s pretty awesome…

  13. OK I am updating my book list

  14. I’m going through my papyrus to find out.

  15. Hmm. Mikey hasn’t updated on the hockey game lately.

    I don’t think there’s any choice but to assume he is running pantsless through the streets, a jug of Sailor Jerry’s in one hand, accosting anybody with a leaf blower.

    Better pitching on both sides, but the Giants scored a run on a double play and another on a sac fly and the Tigers? Well, they didn’t score any runs at all. Whoops.

    Everybody going back to Michigan to play some more games, but those Big angry Prince Fielder Tigers are down 2 games to none. Because of the way the previous series timed out, the Giants will be going with their best pitchers in Games 3 and 4. It sure is looking pretty good for the boys on the left edge of the continent…

  17. The Giants will be helpless in the midwestern pre-winter weather.

    I don’t even understand how you guys can FIELD a hockey team with the Cali climate….

    I think it has to do with our Octopussy Riot…

Go ahead, tell me how I fucked up this time.
