Giant day of NBA rest
Not like anyone needs me to play tastemaker here, seeing as no less a mainstream guru than Bill Simmons has touted its infinite virtues. But it's safe to say that everyone that Shoals has any respect for is eagerly awaiting Season 4 of television's foremost miracle. For reasons that took me weeks to decipher, supposedly episode one is available on On Demand tonight—a full week before its official debut. Needless to say, this is about as momentous in my life as Gilbert/Bron, minus the conflicted allegiance.
Consider this my excuse for a FreeDarko holiday, a plea unto the willing, an open thread if you need one, and an opportunity to link my long-forgotten Melo/Bodie comparison. My advance apologies for the potholed old post.
Oh, and if anyone cares, my top five favorite characters going into this season:
1. Marlo (bonus points for his crew)
4. Bodie (bonus points for having no crew)
CONTEST: First person to spot Richard or Romesh from Boys of Baraka gets his name in lights.
