And, honestly, what's the deal with people having "theories" about Mad Men in the first place? This isn't Lost. What the hell do people expect to "figure out"?

Fucking internet.

Christ, I am so sick of the idea that a show is a puzzle to be unlocked. Admittedly, the Sopranos finale was something you had to think about, but since when has Weiner been the creator of shows with long-running secret, arcane symbolism?

The worst thing DB Cooper ever did was disappear forever, allowing his story to be hijacked by every lazy, two-bit hack writer ever.  Not counting Weiner among them, but I wonder if Cooper had any idea that by leaping out of that plane he was falling into eternal McGuffinhood.

No look, he got up and he's walking away.

I've missed baseball talk so much.

While Wendy's idiocy stretched beyond belief for me (she really thought Kendal shot Art until that moment?!?) I did enjoy Darryl's antics this season.  Unlike the other master criminals that have populated Kentucky, Darryl had only the vaguest goal (work for Boyd? Become Boyd's partner? Make money and go back to Florida?) and no real plan for accomplishing that goal, other than to insert himself into every situation and do whatever appears to give him the most leverage.  It was kind of fun to see all these characters on both sides of the law put together intricate plans only for Darryl come smashing into the scene and completely fuck up everything.

The finale did seem pretty low key though, more concerned with setting up Season 6 than ending Season 5.  But it's always good to see Rachel and Tim get screen time (their relative absence is probably my biggest disappointment in this season).

Anyway, the table is set for Raylan vs. Boyd, the final battle.  Now we just have to sit back and wait for it.



Is anybody else planning on watching "Fargo"?

Quote from: Ultimate Warrior, Monday night
No WWE talent becomes a legend on their own. Every man’s heart one day beats its final beat. His lungs breathe their final breath. And if that man did in his life what makes the blood pulse through the body of others and makes them bleed deeper and something larger than life then his essence, his spirit, will be immortalized.

He foresaw his own demise, just like Martin Luther King.



Does it matter? They'll just replace him with a different guy again.

Did he get traded or something?

Nah, just figured we'd never need it again.*

* I may be trying a reverse jinx here. Anything's worth a shot.


4 games

Right. He's started slowly after missing almost all of Spring Training. DOOOOOOM!!!

After 700 mostly-terrible plate appearances last year.

and he's even worse this year!

Yeah I don't see where there's anything illogical in being off the Starlin bandwagon. His value was tied entirely to his batting average and it's been garbage for over a year after a not insignificant decline in 2012 from his 2011 high. There's a good chance he's just bad and grossly overpaid now.

Yeah, but this year was all about seeing if he could rebound from last season. And, particularly given his spring training injury, it's way too early to make a call on that.

Which is to say, we'll have wait to see how this one plays out.

Yeah, and when this strategy costs the Cubs their 77th win who'll look stupid then?

Glendon Rusch inexplicably began following me on Twitter.

I got Ellis Valentine. I win.

Yeah? Well, Butthead connected with Martellus Bennett on LinkedIn. He wins in a landslide.

Pfft. Mike North PM'd me to tell me I'm funny.

This season is going to suck some serious hang if the Cubs continue to hit .037 with runners in scoring position.

Look on the bright side, once Bonerface turns back into himself, nobody will every be in scoring position again.

Anyone ever been to Snarfburger?

There are two here, but the 3rd location is at 600 W. Chicago.

Snarf's is a sub shop here in Boulder and it's pretty damn good. Snarfburger is the new burger joint, though I've never been.

Edit: I see that Snarf's also had their sub shop in Chicago and fired all their employees by email 3 days before Christmas. So, yeah...this might not go over well.  Still, could be good.

There's a Snarf's next door to my office and while it's pretty good, it seemed to me to be a blatant ripoff of Potbelly's. Like, the exact same sandwiches and ingredients just with a different name.

Is the Snarf's where the Quizno's used to be? I literally walk by there everyday but never pay attention

Yes. Understandable that you'd be distracted by the siren song of Authentic Chinese Slop at the Panda Express across the way.

It appears I have touched a nerve by not PAYING THE FUCK ATTENTION to RV's beloved Snarf's. Seriously though, just the smell of that Panada Express is enough to give me the trots.

I kind of hope he gets reunited with Dickie Bennett in prison, but if this is it for Dewey Crowe on Justified, it was a hell of a way to go out.

That definitely had the feel of a final farewell to Dewey.

But maybe they can work in a cameo or something next season.

It looks like Damon Herriman is attached to a couple of series for next year, so I'd guess we've seen the last of Dewey.
12  General Category / Boobtube / Re: Justified on: April 02, 2014, 10:13:12 AM
Ah Dewey Crowe, my favorite hapless criminal.

As soon as that old lady went back into her house I thought, “she’s coming back with a gun” but knowing that didn’t make it any less funny.

Then he manages to beat up a guy and take back his gator teeth necklace, quite probably his second or third greatest victory in the history of the show (No. 1 being winning his lawsuit and potential no. 2 being the time he impersonated Raylan while committing armed robbery).

Which he then caps off by busting in on Daryl and Boyd, stealing their heroin and confessing to Wade Messer’s murder over a live wire that the Feds were listening to.

All that, and he still doesn’t know what third person is.  I kind of hope he gets reunited with Dickie Bennett in prison, but if this is it for Dewey Crowe on Justified, it was a hell of a way to go out.

Geez that's too bad.

Why couldn't it have been Mike ImremBarry Rozner Snake Farm?


C'mon.

I admit it... I don't really get the Lazarus hate.

I don't either, but I like the "Snake Farm" nickname.

Five dingers. Five ribbies. Nice choice, Jimpstink.



MY COLT at #8.

Against higher quality opposition, no less. Hopefully the reason we've only seen him DH/1B is because Jepstink is supremely confident in his defense at 3B.

Unfortunately, it's because he's got dead arm.  Tommy John disease, no doubt.
