Sunday Catch-Up – October 1

Let’s finish off the weekend with a look at the week that was and the things that are happening in the Geekery world.

Well, September is over, and we all should know what that means.

Huh. There’s a video… I’ve never seen that before. Moving on…

Dark Horse Comics and Nintendo are teaming up for The Legend of Zelda Encyclopedia, the third prestige volume based on the game. The 300-plus page hardcover will give an in-depth look at Hyrule and all of its characters. The volume will be released in April 2018.

• Sticking with Dark Horse, the publisher announced that once the American Gods: Shadows miniseries ends, the story will pick up with the second of three nine-issue stories based on the Neil Gaiman novel, American Gods: My Ainsel. The new series will debut with in March 2018. You can read my review of the first issue of the SHADOWS miniseries right here.

• Several outlets are reporting that Kristen Stewart and Lupita Nyong’o may be joining up with Elizabeth Banks’ new Charlie’s Angels reboot. And that’s a pretty weird combo right there… Also, why do we need a new Charlie’s Angel movie?

This Week at the Geekery

• The RETRO MOVIE NERD is back with a look at Star Trek: The Motion Picture.

• This week’s SONG OF THE WEEK features “Heavenward” by Wolf Alice.

Comics reviews this week are pretty Bat-Centric, with looks at Batman: The Murder Machine and a second edition of SUBWAY SHORTS reviews last week’s issue of Batman (with a side helping of Superman).

  • It’s Sunday, which means it’s a whole morning of Law and fucking Order again.

    Sigh.

  • ProjectBlue

    Banks directing an Angels movie has trainwreck all over it. Pitch Perfect 2 was awful. Though how much of that was the director and how much of it being an unneeded sequel I guess is debatable.

    Shame she couldn’t work her way up from smaller scale films to something big-ish like this

  • BTW Blanche made it to Paris …no word yet if she found that guy

  • Read through all my comics yesterday. At least I’ll have a couple of posts with reviews this week. No idea what I’m gonna do for tomorrow’s Monday Memories yet, though… Gotta look into that later.

  • Devin Harris

    No love for the Def Jam 25 special?

  • TatR!

    HAPPY BISCUIT DAY

  • TatR!

    So comrades the new Nick Kroll cartoon Big Mouth on Netflix is hilarious. It’s my favourite new thing

  • TatR!

    Sad mascara serious Green Day were insufferable. Utterly awful and they never recovered.

    • American Idiot is one of my favorite albums of the 2000s. It’s also the last Green Day album I fully enjoyed.

      • TatR!

        Sorry to say the one before American Idiot was the last one I even remotely enjoyed

    • When masturbation’s lost its fun
      You’re fucking lonely

    • WorldWide Duck

      I like doing 21 Guns on the rare opportunities I do karaoke.

  • 1. Gymnastics
    2. Used book and record store
    3. Lunch at a smokehouse
    4. Ninjago picture

    This is my day with The Boy.

  • TatR!

    my day:

    get up
    use bathroom
    look at stuff
    probably take a bath

    GULP.

    • A bath?!? I hope that you use the correct ph balance for your lady garden!

      • TatR!

        GULPH?!

  • I told him to go and get dressed, and he owns two Ninjago tshirts, and he’s wearing both of them.

    • ProjectBlue

      Miss that part about being a kid. Pure excitement for things without my eeyore-like “this will probably be fun but traffic, parking, cost, what if it sucks, etc”

    • Thankfully it’s getting cooler out.

  • Let’s see… I’ve got a trip to CostCo… maybe a walk in the sculpture garden because my wife has no concept of time and doesn’t care if I end up being late to work… and then I have to lower the mattress in the crib, because the baby is learning how to pull herself up.

    And then I have to go to work.

    This is a busy day that would have been impossible before we had the car.

    • RudoWakening

      CostCo is marvelous. I bought our 58” smart tv and a 6’x2’ runner for the kitchen for $550

  • The Silver Fox

    Frost on the roofs this morning but not on the ground. Looks like I still have to deal with ragweed for a while longer, since the 7 day forecast doesn’t show it getting this cold again.

  • …9 miles…. just ran…9 miles for first time… now won’t feel guilty for all the crap I eat today

    • RudoWakening

      I did 4 on hill intervals in 40 minutes before starting the lifting circuits. Speaking of, I should finish this round

      • I can’t treadmill run… just can’t do it.. if I do cardio inside I do other machines. I just can’t stay motivated if I’m not moving forward seeing different scenery. Also I did lots of treadmill running in my 20s and ended up with a bit of a knee issue

        • RudoWakening

          During the week I use the elliptical but on weekends I go early and turn the tv to whatever Premier League match is on to keep me occupied

        • RudoWakening

          Also, it helps that I have a really nice pair of running shoes to keep my legs happy

        • TatR!

          The treadmills at the university gym have these cool programmes built into the display where you’re running through various places in the world. I don’t need it though, on the new one at home I just stick my tablet on the display and watch football

    • The Professor

      I was supposed to do 10 miles today but a cold said no; stay in bed

  • RudoWakening

    Frida and Xannie are live on the Instagrams right now. Neat.

  • you know what sucks… being half way into your run looking at your phone and seeing news headline 2 women stabbed in french train station attack..

    WHAT?!?!?…oh ..other side of the country

    • Dude…

    • ProjectBlue

      I tend to shut things off or out when I’m out of a controlling situation. LIke, would have just went to sleep early last night and woke up with her already in France.

      • I didn’t stay up for the whole thing.. I did happen to wake up around the time she got in but I’m not honestly freaking out.. I just had to stop and make sure since … I sent two women off to france and with in hours two women stabbed i france

        • ProjectBlue

          Nah, I get it and the shutting things out is easier said than done honestly

        • TatR!

          Classic Peyton!

        • TatR!

  • RudoWakening

          • I don’t care for the Olympics. Too commercial and nationalist.

            Well played

    Forks are for eating! Not combing hair!

  • The Silver Fox

    Encountered a 3 1/2 foot long timber rattlesnake sunning itself on a rock while walking this morning. Good reason to not listen to music while I’m in the woods.

    • I agree with a wise man who once said I don’t like Spiders and Snakes

  • ProjectBlue

    One image shows Scully bedridden in a hospital bed as Mulder sits
    nearby, looking forlorn. Carter says this shows the agents “swapping
    places” – the season finale of season 10 featured a very sick Mulder
    reacting to an alien virus running rampant while Scully seemed immune.
    Now the tables are turned. “Obviously something unexpected has
    happened,” Carter said in his deliberately vague fashion. http://www.slashfilm.com/x-files-season-11-first-look-hints-at-whats-to-come/ ….Carter should sell the rights

    • TatR!

      I refuse to watch this. That comeback season was horseshit.

      • ProjectBlue

        90% of comeback sucked. Really enjoyed the weremonster episode though

  • The Professor

    Wow Leslie wins. How shocking

  • Marv

    I can’t decide if I want to puke or shit

  • The Professor

    Ron Swanson would make a great asst city manager

  • CostCo and its surrounding parking lot may in fact be one of the circles of hell.

    • The Silver Fox

      Costco on a weekend seems like something that would even try my patience.

      • RudoWakening

        It’s even awful in Eureka and we only have 30000 people

        • Comdukakis

          wow. A costco? Back in my day I think the big store was Waremart or something like that. I preferred going there after work in Eureka vs. going to the Safeway in Arcata.

    • ProjectBlue

      I’m not sure if it matters for NY but if you could ever swing it around 6 on a weeknight, a couple I’ve gone to in CT are like ghost towns

      • Working nights and the baby makes that tough. Unfortunately, a Sunday is the one time my wife and I can go together.

    • It’s up there with Walmart for being the worst place in the world.

  • The Professor

    Costco or sams club?

    • RudoWakening

      CostCo

    • Comdukakis

      costco. Better to their workers

  • RudoWakening

    There are a whole bunch of music docs on Amazon Video that I need to watch

    • like?

      • RudoWakening

        I’m currently watching From the Back of the Room about the DIY feminist hardcore and Riot Grrrl movements. I think Gimme Danger will be next. It’s about The Stooges

        • The Silver Fox

          Standing in the Shadows of Motown and The Wrecking Crew are two of my favorite music documentaries. Also Muscle Shoals, The Last Waltz and Gimme Shelter.

  • “Hurricane Jose” Gomez

  • Marv

    That Biscuit post last night was weird I assume he was drunk lol

    • Facts

      I had no idea what he was talking about

    • As usual, I had no idea what was going on. But I know TatR was excited about it, so it can’t be good.

      • TatR!

        Well… my excitement dissipated with the lack of a follow up today. On Biscuit Day of all days! Oh well. I’m all for Biscuit being here.

  • Facts

    All of the women here are insane.

  • We’re running an exclusive story tomorrow that the BoD is gonna be ALLLLL OVER.

    • Marv

      The NYDN staff is rebooking a wrestling angle from 16 years ago?

  • What’s good, peens?

    • Not the parking lot of the CostCo in Astoria.

    • “Hurricane Jose” Gomez

      Been working mid shift today from 10:30am-9pm

      • Better than night shift?

        • “Hurricane Jose” Gomez

          I don’t think so, only because if this were to be my regular schedule it would feel like I won’t have to do anything either during the day or evening

  • Fun_Matt_Indeed

    This has been a fun weekend.

  • Marv

    Lord god can we go home yet what is this

    • How have you not left yet?

  • RudoWakening

    Today I bought Chuck Klosterman’s new book as well as Lara Jane Grace’s book. Grace’s is pretty great so far

    • I remember reading Sex, Drugs and Cocoa Puffs years ago and just being annoyed that this guy was getting paid for that. I don’t even remember why I was so annoyed by it.

      • Marv

        He’s abhorrent. Hey let’s look at the race issue in America through the lens of Saved By the Bell! No let’s not do that.

      • Mr. Money On The Table

        That book is ass butt. Fargo, Rock City is okay. It’s just him talking about metal and how much of a part of his life it was growing up.

        • I couldn’t fathom why anyone gave a shit what he thought about any of it.

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            Eh, when he’s focused on a single narrative it’s tolerable-ish. Milage may vary blahdy blah doo and stuff but it’s better than a shotgun full of essays like Cocoa Puffs was.

      • RudoWakening

        I liked that book a lot when I was younger. Now it’s just total balls. His other books are decent though

  • Marv

    I wannnnnnnnaaaaa gooooooo hoooooooooooooooooooooooommmmmmmmmmmeeeeeeeeeeeeer

          • throw a hail mary just sand up and go… well.. we should probably head back .. I’ve got work early in the morning

  • Marv

  • Comdukakis

    some might call the Lions game boring. I call it good defensive football

    • The Silver Fox

      As long as it’s not due to offensive sloppiness, I enjoy a good defensive game at least as much as an offensive shoot out.

      • Comdukakis

        naah, those two defenses were going AT IT. And the refs turned back the clock to the 70s letting the defensive backs hang all over the receivers.

        • The Silver Fox

          Than that would’ve been an enjoyable game for me.

  • Florida Attorney General: We don’t Want OJ here.

  • The Silver Fox

    Made a white bean, fennel and sausage soup tonight. Also for lunch tomorrow.

  • The queso in that Chipotle commercial does not represent the consistency of what I’ve seen people post on line. What I’ve seen online is more a school janitor throwing the saw dust stuff on puked up cheese

  • Marv

    I have to buy a cod piece when I get home

  • be interesting to see if get on twin peaks tonight if and when the Colts are getting murdered

  • The Silver Fox

    Saw a copy of the comic book Amazing Spider Man #3 for sale yesterday for $2,500. Wish my father had kept his comic books because he had large numbers of early Spider Man, Fantastic Four and X Men comics, along with golden age DC comics from his older brother.

    • RudoWakening

      My dad’s oldest brother was born in 1938 and had a ton of Golden Age comics that my dad read when he was a kid. When my uncle moved out for good in the early-60s my grandma threw them all away

      • The Silver Fox

        My dad was born in 1936 and retained an interest in comics well into his 30’s. I think he finally stopped around the time my sister and I were born.

  • Overheard in the newsroom: “Does Keith Hernandez think that a hot dog is a sandwich?”

    Fuck, I gotta get the fuck out of here.

  • Stranger In the Alps

    So ends another season of baseball. The Sox are in the playoffs and have zero chance against the Astros, in my opinion. I’ll go with Indians/Dodgers in the World Series and this is the year the Indians take it home. Two old school teams going at it should be the way it ends.

    • Red Sox squeak by Houston, while the Yankees win an amazing series against Cleveland, setting up the match only one part of the country wants to see – Red Sox-Yankees, the rematch!

      A guy can dream…

      • Stranger In the Alps

        Game 7 begins with Eduardo Nunez bunting for a single off C.C.

        Let the sparks fly.

  • The Professor

    Leslie and Ben are engaged

  • The Silver Fox

    Can’t remember the last time I had a hot dog, but I still do love a sausage on a bun.

  • Two of the leading breweries in the city collaborated on a stout but each produced a slightly different version using coffee from roasters local to them. I will be comparing and contrasting these.

    Also, Ninjago Movie sucks.

  • up to 20,000 steps….now more beer and wings music and…….watch the colts lose

  • The Silver Fox

    He-Man shilling Geico. What next, Optimus Prime?

  • Think I’ll listen to the band some while watching the game

  • Marv ever get headed home?

    • ProjectBlue

      There should be a semi-legit Home app that monitors for leaks, doors open, power outages, etc that you can also text “get me the fuck out of here” codes to that will then send false warnings to you so you can go home

    • Marv

      Nope now we’re staying for dinner I mean it’s only a three hour drive why not get home late at night

      • doesn’t she work?..none of this makes sense…if you are accurately describing this everyone is miserable… why is no one tapping out?

        • Marv

          She has tomorrow off for a doctors appointment. I’m the only one miserable currently lol

  • Reading up on the potential NYS Constitutional Convention, I find this tidbit from a July New York Times story:

    “John Bergener Jr., a retiree who lives outside Albany, would like to see the separation of New York City from the rest of the state. As chairman of Divide NYS Caucus, a political committee, he believes a constitutional convention is the best mechanism to achieve that.

    “Upstate areas, he said, have suffered economically from excessive business regulations and unfunded mandates. His vision — and he claims thousands of supporters — calls for two or three autonomous regions, each with its own regional governor and legislature. (The upstate region, north of the lower Hudson Valley, would be called New Amsterdam.) A statewide governor would be titular, with the same “powers as the queen of England.””

    What a stupid fucking idea.

    • I mean..it’s creative

      • I imagine Mr. Bergener was smoking something funky when he came up with that.

      • The Professor

        It’s no worse than splitting California into 6 states

  • The Professor

    Reasons why I have able to go through about 75 episodes of parks and rec in about 10 days:
    1) good show
    2) only 20 minutes an episode
    3) each episode doesn’t feel like 20 min.
    4) light and breezy (nothing too intense like the wire or breaking bad).
    5) Ron Swanson is awesome

    • The Professor

      Also helps I have been sick the last few days

    • It’s such an easy show to binge.

      • The Professor

        Yeah I did all of season 4 (election season) in basically a day

      • RudoWakening

        That and Scrubs are just a breeze to watch. I do a yearly rewatch of Scrubs

        • Oh, totally. I went through all of Scrubs in about a week. Well… almost all. I skipped the “last” season where it became the Turk and Cox show.

    • Marv

      It’s a great go to bed show

      • The Professor

        I can see that.

        I usually watch burn notice or leverage or a team as I’m trying to fall asleep

        • Marv

          There’s a constant loop going of Parks and Sunny in my house lol

    • Holy crap. I haven’t watched that many episodes of television this entire year. That’s dedication.

      • The Professor

        Well 75 episodes of parks and rec is like 25 hours of wire (time wise)

        • I did watch 9 eps of Bojack Horseman in one evening recently. I believe that’s a binging record for me. Previously it was 4 eps of Bob’s Burgers.

    • yep last time she went to Paris I got through like 5 season that week for the same reason

  • The Professor

    One other thing I like is that parks and rec doesn’t get too political. You have a libertarian but doesn’t treat him as evil. You have other wackos but it makes fun of all sides.

    • Fun_Matt_Indeed

      I saw the show called Capra-esque. I think that is a great way to say it.

      Its extremely delightful.

  • I should be binging something instead of watching the Colts 3rd string QB and the 3 string center meet for the first time in one of the loudest stadiums in football

  • RudoWakening

    I read issues 4 and 5 of Good Apollo, I’m Burning Star IV and 180 pages of Lara Jane Grace’s book today

  • Fun_Matt_Indeed

    They bought me a record player.

    So now I’m *that* douchebag.

    • My favourite bar plays records. I’ve thought about getting one as well, but I don’t need stuff.

      • Fun_Matt_Indeed

        Yeah, that’s my only problem with it. Just something else to collect. But maybe it will be fun.

    • Ginger Mahal

      Welcome to the club.

    • Fun_Matt_Indeed

      First vinyl album was gifted to me as well…new Foo Fighters.

    • RudoWakening

      I bought my record player at an estate sale in 2013 and now I have 300-400 records

    • its fun..

  • Facts

    Colts vs Seahawks

    2 to 10?

  • I bought a Calvin & Hobbes book at the used bookstore today. I have the collected editions in hardback on the shelf, but I’m not letting The Boy wreck those.

  • Facts

    Where is Andrew Luck?

    • The Professor

      Injured

  • Marv

    And now we’re at a park. I am never getting home lol

    Edna’s all pissed because I refuse to drive home on account of that whole being completely blind at night thing

    • She has a slight point of…….you drove the whole country for 3 weeks and now you won’t go three hours

      • Marv

        And I stopped every single night the second it got dark

    • Facts

      Im the same way. I have poor eyesight at night. Im not allowed to drive at night.

    • So, this is your first trip together…?

  • Facts

    My cat is currently going through all the kitchen cabinets. Do you have nothing better to do?

  • Do classrooms not have pencil sharpeners anymore?

    • Ginger Mahal

      A classmate in third grade somehow accidentally stuck his finger in one of the old school pencil sharpeners and cut the shit out of his finger.

      I will NEVER understand how that dumb fuck did that.

      • The Professor

        He probably sued the school for a million dollars

        • Ginger Mahal

          He definitely did not.

      • At least he didn’t try to stick something else in there.

        • Ginger Mahal

          Ah, goddamn sympathy pains…..

      • Well, he was a dumb fuck…

    • The Professor

      We do

      • Nevermind, I read a clickbait article that was “10 Things Kids Today Won’t Experience in School” but halfway though I realized that the actual premise of the article was entirely different.

  • The Professor

    Fun fact: We are not allowed to have hand sanitizer in the classroom because a kid could eat it

    • RudoWakening

      Children are very stupid, you know.

    • Marv

      Yep my kid would definitely do that

    • When I was in like grade 4 or 5 there was a kid a couple of years back that would drink from puddles like an animal.

  • RudoWakening

    Currently looking at flights home for the first week of November

    • Here’s what you do.

      Instead of you flying home, fly out all your doggos and the piggo to Wisconsin and share them with an all-new group of friends they haven’t met yet.

      • RudoWakening

        The wife stays at home, right?

        • I mean, if there’s any money left in the travel budget, she can tag along.

          Xannie and LooLoo ain’t flying coach, bro.

  • The Professor

    How did jerry get such a hot wife?

  • Marv

    Wait kids aren’t supposed to drink out of puddles? Well shit.

  • The Professor

    Tammy 1 or Tammy 2?

  • The Professor

    Watching the bachelor party episode of parks and rec.
    Playing in the field with Andrew luck would be a cool experience

    • The Professor

      Wow newt Gingrich

      • I just googled him and he’s still alive! I wasn’t sure.

        • The Professor

          I’m showing America the story of us and he shows up in it (same with dr oz and Rudy Giuliani and Bloomberg)

    • Luck playing the field would be cool at this point

    • Fun_Matt_Indeed

      That is a great episode.

  • Fun_Matt_Indeed

    They gave me an Amazon gift card, so I bought Sinatra’s Christmas album.

  • I should go to sleep…i’m not enjoying the sports games but I’m still watching

  • I can buy the first Astro City trade for $12.99 or get the six individual issues in the collection for $9.95.

    I don’t think that’s how collections should work…

    • Marv

      Yesssssssssssss I can’t wait for you to read this

  • Fun_Matt_Indeed

    What an odd combination for the beginning of my vinyl collection. Foo Fighters and A Frank Sinatra Jolly Christmas.

    • This is an exciting new development for you.

      • Fun_Matt_Indeed

        I am a bit excited. I own a record player, drink whiskey, and own several plaid pajamas. I’m living the dream.

        • So, you’ll be scouting out rooms to rent in Williamsburg soon?

          • Fun_Matt_Indeed

            I don’t know what that means.

          • You’re a hipster now. You have to live among the hipsters. It’s the rule.

          • Fun_Matt_Indeed

            Oh. No, I live in a cul-de-sac. It’s as unhipster as it gets.

            I would need to buy a 100 year old shanty house downtown and flip it to be a hipster here.

          • Hipster definitions vary from state-to-state… Interesting.

          • Fun_Matt_Indeed

            Hipsters here live downtown and buy dives.

          • We have very few of those here.

            I am generally okay with this.

    • stuff is expensive so go buy some beat up old stuff to pad things out then get some “new” albums here and there

      • Fun_Matt_Indeed

        Oh yeah. I doubt I buy too much new.

        • Going to used record stores is a fun experience. I don’t even own any records and I enjoy it every now and then.

      • I have my grandmother’s old vinyl copy of Simon and Garfunkel’s Greatest Hits.

        I don’t listen to it or anything, I just like looking at the album cover because it makes me giggle.

      • Look in used places. The local used bookstore has loads of records.

  • Facts

    Time for some more Firefly before bed.

    Im over this nfl game.

  • Well that’s that night all

  • Marv

    I have no idea why anyone would buy a record lol

    • Because sometimes, you want a CD, but bigger.

    • Something about the integrity of the music. I never fully got the point…

    • Fun_Matt_Indeed

      I like to try different things, so that’s my excuse right now. We’ll see how it goes. I don’t see a problem with it.

    • Fun_Matt_Indeed

      Also, to annoy you.

  • Because it is Monday, today’s thread will be delayed. Please enjoy the other fine contents here at the Geekery until the latest Monday Memories is posted.

  • Facts

    This is heartbreaking about this shooting in Las Vegas.

    • 50 is a lot!

    • Fun_Matt_Indeed

      It’s absolutely disgusting what that guy did. What the fuck is wrong with people?

  • Reasonable Opinion Guy
  • Once the baby is napping and my breakfast is made, a Monday post will begin to be written.

    Hello!

    A friend in Vegas is safe, but a friend of a friend was shot in the shoulder and is in stable condition. Scary stuff.

    • Fun_Matt_Indeed

      Jesus. This fucking world is going to absolute shit.

  • Devin Harris

    I’m completely out of the loop. I slept forever last night/this morning. What happened with the Vegas stuff?

    • Fun_Matt_Indeed

      During an outdoor music festival last night, a shooter was in a hotel room on the 32nd floor of Mandalay Bay, and opened fire on the crowd. Killed 50 people, injured 400.

    • Diddly

      Old ass psycho gets a hotel room in Mandalay Bay that overlooks a country music festival and opens fire into the crowd. I’ve heard 50 people are dead and between 200-400 injured

      • Devin Harris

        How many rounds did he shoot? Damn

        • Fun_Matt_Indeed

          He had at least 10 rifles in the room, and fired for 10-15 straight minutes.

  • Mikey

    The Fake Browns lost to the Bengals last night by a score of 31-7. Man are they terrible.

    • Diddly

      I picked them to win too! The imbeciles!

    • Fun_Matt_Indeed

      By far the worst team in the NFL, and it’s not even close.

      • Mikey

        Disband the team!

        • Fun_Matt_Indeed

          I would prefer to get new owners, new management, and maybe even a new name in Cleveland. Just everything about the Browns feels like never ending losers at this point.

  • Facts

    Here’s what we know about Stephen Paddock, the man police identified as the shooter:

    Paddock, 64, is from Mesquite, Nevada, authorities said. Police believe Paddock may have killed himself just as police stormed his room on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino. From there it’s believed he fired off “hundreds” of shots, targeting a crowd of 22,000 people attending the Route 91 Harvest music festival below.
    The Mesquite Police Department had no prior contact with him, according to spokesman Quinn Averett, nor had there been any calls to Paddock’s home in Mesquite, which is about 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas. Paddock’s home is being searched. Officials did not know how long he had been living in the area.
    At least 10 rifles were found in his hotel room, Sheriff Joseph Lombardo of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department said at a news conference.
    Paddock had been at the Mandalay Bay since Thursday, Lombardo said.

    • Fun_Matt_Indeed

      I don’t know what makes a person do that to other people. This guy just mowed down someone’s daughter, someone’s son, someone’s mother, someone’s dad. And for what?! For what? I just…..I don’t understand it.

  • Facts

    Why would you target that music festival?

    Man I don’t think I would ever want to go to a concert.

  • Fun_Matt_Indeed

    I live an hour from Jacksonville, and they have two wins! Maybe I should be a Jaguars fan?!

    I probably already would be if it weren’t for those terrible colors and uniform.

  • Alright, we can all move over to the Monday Thread.
