Permanent Louts



Recording on Monday night, Shoals joins Dan, which is nice, considering all the other podcasts he’s been on lately.

Since Shoals already talked about Gil plenty, we try to find other things to talk about. And we succeed!



First, we talk about whether or not the Celtics are bullies. This leads to a long discussion of Kevin Garnett and his antics/tactics. Again, we recorded this on Monday night. It was before this poll was released voting KG the NBA’s worst trash talker.

Now, we’re not saying we had anything to do with the way the poll came out, just so that our conversation would seem that much more relevant. We would never say that. That’s not the kind of thing we say out loud.

There is also some discussion of long losing streaks, the joys of following mediocre teams when they win, complaints about work, and a history lesson for Dan.

Since this was recorded on Monday there was no talk of the earthquake in Haiti. NBA Cares is supporting the relief effort, and if you can help, even a little, it is needed.

Songs from the episode:

“Walk and Talk (Demo)” - Velvet Underground
“Bad Touch Example” - Company Flow
“Career Finders” - Perceptionists
“A Tender History in Rust” - Do Make Say Think

The most indelible image of KG remains, in my opinion, ABC's close-up of him mouthing the following words some lazy Sunday ago: "Get the fuck off me you bitch-ass Nigger." "Moma, I'm on top of the world" remains a distant second.

Dan's Boston-hatred is justifiable because he is from New York, but Shoals, what the fuck is your problem? I know Boston doesn't have a ton of black people like fucking Seattle does and there were too many white guys on the 80's Celtics and Stephen Curry is too light-skinned and you've done way more coke than Bill Simmons, but go fuck yourself.

Why do people think I've lived in Seattle my whole life?

I don't like Boston in part because of all the time I've spent there.

I like how I never said that. It's simply where you choose to live now. You listen to jazz records on vinyl, though, so you win any conceivable argument about anything.

I was employing hyperbole.

Moved to Seattle fairly recently because of my wife's grad school. Before that Texas, before that Philly (and burbs) forever. Spent much summer time in Boston.

I don't listen to jazz anymore. It gives me a headache.

On the other hand, I do listen to jazz and also have done more coke than Bill Simmons.

Boston is the greatest city on the planet earth and I would sell my soul for a vial of Matt Damon's seed.
