Old Silver Kinds
Supposed to snow again. The above is my favorite YouTube video ever, so excuse me if it has 8,000 views already. I was also looking for a live clip of "We People Who are Darker Than Blue," which would've made no sense as an expression of snowbound ennui and been even more obvious. So fuck off. Below, links that bother or inspire me:
-Byron Scott world's greatest coach, Julian Wright's demotion his own fault. Is Scott the biggest coattail-rider in the league?
-Joe Alexander, Great White Dunking Hope, can bang his head on the rim. Naturally, Bogut makes an appearance.
-This one is good: Rondo's all-explaining relationship with Favre's style. This is his year.
-Mixed. LeBron's shoes aren't such colossal successes, but clearly Nike is building his brand bit-by-bit, instead of worrying about the immediate home run. And might be picking up momentum at just the right time.
-I don't mean to be a huge racist, but aren't there some connotations to Sponge Bob that posts like this one on Amir or all the "oh, Beasley is so silly, he hearts a cartoon" might be missing. Not saying these guys—both of whom are legitimately light-hearted and fun—don't like the show, but I have heard of it being used as a Crip signifier. Certainly this warrants as much of an investigation as Pierce's gang signs. Since, you know, there might be something urban to it, as opposed to simply childish.
FORGET IT, I WAS LIED TO BY SOME EDUCATORS. THE INTERNET REFUSES TO CONFIRM THIS. SO I GUESS ALL THESE ATHLETES ARE JUST MORONS WHO LIKE CARTOONS.
-Chauncey DeVega knocks it out the box on the subject of Christmas. I almost typed "knicks it out the box," which should be an expresion of sorts.
Okay, some Curtis anyway:
Yes, I am comparing inclement weather and a ravaged holiday season to the general upheaval of 1970.
KNICK IT OUT THE BOX.
