i like sports personally. football just isn’t one of them ;)
cupcake for me being on top once again!!!
LADIES AND GENTLEMEN:
That is all.
One day I’ll be on top of you all!
So the amount of times I can wrestle another man to the ground when he is holding a ball can guarantee a mate? A fascinating development.
Some women do think the only thing they need is someone who is athletic! I was in high school! You can’t fool me! Anyone who knows science knows that people who are more intelligent make better partners.
It’s just a game. People like to play them.
It’s not really different from enjoying the act of watching movies or listening to music. It’s just much less intellectual.
Baseball > Football
By the way…
Playoff hockey > baseball. Football > both.
Someone just loves to see men crawling all over each other…
I like football, but here’s the thing about football. It’s the only major sport where the same people are not playing both offense and defense. That makes it a bit less ‘nifty’ to me.
Anyway, to play: Tennis > Basketball > ‘Most of the world’ Football > Baseball > Hockey > Football
To watch: Basketball > Tennis > Football > Baseball > ‘Most of the world’ Football > Hockey
The only time I’ve cared about the NHL in the last ten years was when my team was winning a championship. I gave up on it when they lost a season to the strike, I haven’t forgiven them for the ‘Point for overtime loss’ rule or any of the ‘Screw the defensemen’ rules, and I can’t help but notice the results of any given game are much more of a coin toss than in any other major sport.
Here’s, in my opinion, the probability that the better team wins any given game at the professional level, by sport:
American Football: 90%
‘Rest of the world’ Football: 70%
That’s why there’s far more playoff upsets in the NHL than any other major league, and so few in the NBA.
i gotta say i went into tree of life a true skeptic but i’m enjoying it quite a bit
i’ll have to sleep on it
I bought a used copy of Tree of Life and the goddam thing won’t play in my blu ray player.
Dead Ringers was pretty much everything I was afraid it would be but hoped it wouldn’t. I guess I can say I just don’t like Cronenberg except for Videodrome and The Fly…. :(
I don’t get people’s obsession with Ghost in the Shell. It’s not in Mamoru Oshii’s top 5 best works.
I’m not a fan of Dead Ringers though I acknowledge Irons’ amazing performance.
The psychological themes of the picture just don’t make a whole lot of sense to me, nor the behavior of any of the characters.
Ghost In The Shell is fine but it seems more like the first episode of a series than a movie.
Good news! Pitchfork does not like of Montreal’s latest, and so far, I almost invariably hold the opposite of their opinion of of Montreal! It should be in my mailbox tomorrow! :)
Don’t worry DFFOO, if Pitchfork doesn’t like Of Montreal’s latest, it only means they didn’t like the culture of the album. They may or may not have listened to the actual album.
The only Of Montreal album I’ve liked is Hissing Fauna.
lol true – Have you listened to Skeletal Lamping? Pitchfork and everybody I know hated it, but I freaking love that album, as obnoxious as it is – that one is tied with Hissing Fauna and Coquelicot as their best for me.
um. my feed is slightly constipated. (hey i think i’ll save that line for valentines day)
also think i just figured it out. it goes a little stationary when they add new films to watch. maybe in the hope that we’ll be so bored we’ll watch ’em. yeah right! not with StL still alive! eat that, feed!
So come to find out Antonioni shot China on Super 8. I’ve never seen that projected, I’m guessing it’s even more grainy than16mm. I can’t help but chuckle at the idea that Antonioni was walking around China with a Super 8 camera though!
Baseball > all the sports.
I like Madonna’s performance at da super bore. And MIA so pretty I h8 her.
Not a double post.
Kicking rocks > sportz
So it turns out Ancient Babylonians told “Your Mom” jokes. Who would have thought are ancestors were just like us?
“Your Mom” jokes are probably as old as the time when people realized they have moms.
Maybe sex doesn’t sell…
^ Well that would be refreshing, because it’s shoved in our faces every day.
Odi, Skype chat re: Ergodic right now?
