I hate Betty Draper for reasons entirely independent of Don: she's a spiteful, shallow woman who is crushing her daughter out of a weird sense of jealousy. But any shit Don got from her is well and truly deserved.

This accurately states my views on the subject.  Free Sally!

Stop telling insidious lies about Addison Russell, you twits.

Can we just get back to trading Starlin Castro already?

This is to prepare you for full immersion into the MIKE OLT! experience.

You misspelled Addison Russell but yeah. I remember how a couple of years ago I would achieve full-on pulsating asshurt at the idea of the DH coming to the NL. Now I want that rule changed as soon as Kyle Schwarber is ready begin Babe Fucking Ruthage in the bigs. 

That would change everything, now they don't have to trade DANVO GELBOCK.

Another long, prodigious, home run. This show has reached, look at the clock and plead for a few more minutes of screen time awesome.
Random thoughts about last night's show...  I found last night's show to be creepy. 
Question.  Why did he use his sudden wealth to mimic his nemesis? 
His hero-act on TV was bizarre.  Sure, it got him attention, but how did he ever think it up?
Saul/McGill has too many dimensions.  This is TV after all.  TV has to be predictable.   He should be all bad or all good.  To have him be simultaneously good and bad makes him unpredictable.   

Did you ... watch ... Breaking Bad?

Yeah, several.  It was pretty hairy, one way and another, but honestly, even if he'd been a picture of health, I'd quite possibly still have found it overwhelming and deeply unpleasant.  My whole fucking life got turned completely upside-down and I didn't like it one bit.

I thought the first two weeks were awesome, since she was sleeping like 22 hours a day. Weeks 2-6 were pretty tough in a what-the-hell-have-I-done sort of way and are mostly a blur.

I've heard from very few dads who *love* having an infant, so I think this is a fairly universal thing. For whatever reason, new-dad struggles are something that isn't talked about a lot, so it came as a bit of a shock to me. I remember thinking that I was a bad person because I was certainly not "treasuring" every moment (as I was told to do by every old person at the grocery store). It still feels that way a bit, but less so even after a few months.

You're absolutely right.  People looked at me strange when I talked about how bloody difficult I was finding it, which just made me all the more determined not to make a secret of it.  I'm not ashamed of how I felt.  I think it was entirely underfuckingstandable, considering what had just happened to my previously self-centred existence.

First 4 months sucked. Then they start to play and it's fun.

Until they turn 15, fuck up their biology test, don't ask for help, and have a shitty-for-what-he-can-really-do first semester of high school.

Time to waive that college scholarship goodbye.

I saw Birdman on Saturday. It's great cinema. Very nicely shot. The acting was terrific. The whole thing is set within one theater so it's like a play, you know, the shots keep going and follow the actors and shit. Yay? It's sort of an adaptation of Michael Keaton's real life.

I think for people who are in show business this is probably the greatest statement about acting and writing and theater and whatever that anyone ever dreamed up. I spoke to a friend who is an actor and he fucking adored this film.

I was mostly bored. I'm sorry. I see the value here but I wasn't hooked.

The oldest filmmaking tip in the book: For Hollywood's everlasting adoration, make a dramatic movie about the Meaning of Hollywood.

The part with the meth heads and that dirty kid watching tv by himself. Jesus that was sad. Fuck that.

The Tribune carried this nugget today in an article about Kevin Youklis being hired for some made-up job by the Cubs,
"Youklis and his brother Scott recently bought a brew pub in the trendy town of Los Gatos, Calif., that they plan to reopen this summer."

Los Gatos?  Trendy?  A brew pub?  Los Gatos was lacking a place to go and drink overpriced beer?  Who knew?
 Los Gatos is like a suburb of Palo Alto and San Jose, situated on Highway 101 between those two cities.  I guess that Youklis is counting on a loyal Red Sox constituency among the Stanfurdites on the Peninsula.

Close enough compared to Chicago. Hey guys, have I invited you to my hip new gastropub in trendy Martinez yet?

I'm not upset I waited this long to watch though because I bet most people are like "damn I wish I could watch it again for the first time" well guess what fuckos you can't.

I'm one of those fuckos, because I almost posted that.  DAMN YOU GUYS.

DPD.  The Fighting Illini baseball powerhouse has another prospect on the way.
