    US Politics XXXVIII: "Patriots" vs Reality

    I wake up every day enraged and depressed about the huge swaths of this country and world that don't consider Palestinian civilians to be real human beings. And just enraged about how many people still believe that Israel and the United States are ever telling the truth about what is going on there.

    I did not enjoy these playoffs.

    Shuttlecock XXV: Cool Hats Club

    I do hope that this slow drip of B-side releases on streaming fills in the gaps the band has in its streaming discography. I'm most looking forward to getting the live version B-sides that are missing ("Bullet" on ZooTV, "Last Night on Earth" Mexico City, etc.). And eventually they have to start...

    I think he sings "Saw me coming, love."

    Random Music Talk CXXXI: Interference Finally Gets Its Revenge on Cobbler

    The new Future Islands album is much better than their last one. They still have some filler like they always do, but it really kept my interest most of the way through. Looking forward to catching them again on tour, always a treat.

    The tea leaves to me indicate that the Sixers will go the Dejounte Murray route at this deadline. I am torn on this possibility. On one hand, he makes a lot of sense: the single biggest need is another creator who can let Maxey rest a bit more and play more off the ball (where he is an elite...

    It sure sounds like the Eagles intend to bring back Nick Sirianni, whose whole team just quit on him. Good work, Jeffrey Lurie!

    2023 year in review: bests, worsts, surprises, etc

    This is the first year where I really felt like my music listening fell off. Life got very hectic in 2023. I really do not want to be the guy in his 30s who stops listening to new music though, so I will definitely be perusing these posts to see just what I missed. For what it's worth, here...

    I would have loved to have seen ZooTV, but unfortunately I was 1-year-old when they toured Philadelphia.

    I generally agree with this, but my team's general manager is still Daryl Morey, so I'm mentally preparing myself. Don't think any of this is inaccurate. And I'm not unlike you, I'm following the Wizards way more in my older age as my girlfriend is from DC (so I'm following all of their teams a...

    I went out of my way not to watch. I knew Texas would beat Arizona. Philly let Arizona off the hook, and I'll never get over it in my life. This was the year for this core, and they blew it. Looking forward to getting knocked out by Atlanta in the divisional round for the next five years.

    I had this thought heading into the season too, and they definitely need to go full tank for the 2025 draft, not 2024. But it does seem like the issue is just how bad Kuzma and Poole are when cast as the top two scoring options. Add in Wes Unseld Jr. continuing to be in over his head, and here...

    I'm glad the Harden saga is over, but the Sixers are still not where they need to be. They now have a team with zero plus passers or dribblers. Embiid and Maxey are a great starting point, and this opens up a lot more things offensively for Tobias Harris, but not having anyone who can really...

    They're definitely in their all-in phase. I do wonder if building a team around Mazzulla's vision is the right move. He certainly seemed overmatched in his first season, but under admittedly tough circumstances. Now that he has his coaching staff and "his" team, he'll be under the microscope...

    Who would even offer that for Harden? If such a trade became possible due to a team becoming desperate as Morey lets the hours tick away, I suppose it's theoretically possible. But the next player the Sixers acquire who plays better in the playoffs will be only the second one, and I'm not sure...

    I have no idea how the Sixers' season will play out, but I am confident that whatever happens will be torture for Sixers fans.

    Assuming no issues with my flight and no issues with my StubHub order, I will be there tonight with Cobbler to see the Irish rock band U2.

    Theoretically seeing this on Friday night. Think the most likely scenario is my plane gets delayed to the point where I get there just after they finish playing The Fly.

    The United States referring to anything the Palestinians do as "unprovoked" is abhorrent.

    The National: Sunshine on My B&Ck

    Definitely seems like a situation where they probably should have taken the best of both and put one record together. But there's enough to like on both that I'm quite far away from saying "they should pack it in."

    I'm prepared for anything, up to and including the band leaving the stage and "The Fly" being performed via tape by Gavin Friday, a la the i+e intermission.

    At least give us credit: we've mastered the second round ouster.
