Hey kids, don't look so bored when you're talking to me.

  • HOW stoked are you about the new installment of Ken Burns' Baseball? Not as stoked as me. Watch it with your dad or cellmate.

  • NEED some movie advice? Ask Rinku and Dinesh. I agree about The Darjeeling Limited. I thought it was the perfect exercise of Wes Anderson's style and anyone expecting more should go out and make their own film. I also suspect the need to attack it was "intellectual anti-intellectual what was hip is unhip backlash" by the urban media elite. Which is pretty much what they think. Same thing with I'm Not There. I want to get their take on that one too.

  • HOW do I feel about the Baldelli and Smoltz signings going official? Glad you asked. If Rocco is really on the health upswing he has the potential to be the best fourth outfielder in baseball. That's a huge asset to a team that employs awesome, but injury prone Florida State Seminole JD Drew. And regarding Smoltz, his signing just creates another question.

  • WHAT are they gonna do with some of these stockpiled arms? Arlington thinks they're in Boston's crosshairs.

  • EVER heard of "Prince" Joe Henry? Known as the great entertainer of the negro leagues he passed away Friday. Keep em smiling, Prince.

  • DOES anyone know the words to the Oklahoma fight song? I would never root for them under normal circumstances but a title game against those filthy worthless Gators is no normal circumstance. So Boomer Sooner, and stuff.

Today is also Elvis' birthday and it's a minor holiday of sorts for me. Happy Birthday, King.

We'll see you all back here tomorrow. Same WoW Channel.

How does one celebrate, overdose on a toilet?

Run over my Urban Meyer voodoo doll with a Cadillac.

Well, you could also procure 500 old-school flash bulbs, float them in a pool on top of 500 little toy boats, and shoot at them with a BB gun.

/one of many favorite Elvis stories

In case you were wondering if Chipper was pissed about Smoltz leaving, the answer is yes.

SOMEONE KEEPS EATING HIS FISH

Love the Ken Burns Baseball. Love it. But I'm not looking forward to two hours of handwringing and fingerpointing about steroids. However, if they promise to devote an entire segment to the shooting star that was Rich Garces, I'm in. Also, the words to the Oklahoma fight song are, literally, "Boomer Sooner, Boomer Sooner, Boomer Sooner, Boomer Sooner."

So then I guess I do know the words.

If Rinku and Dinesh are taking supplements approved by MLB, then I am very worried about them getting caught in a steroid sting and being part of Ken Burn's 11th Innning.

Also, Darjeeling Limited was great; I'm Not There put me to sleep, not that I blame the film. It was a Friday after a long week.

I THINK YOUR JUST GOATING ME HERE MA-TTt I HAVE MADE MY WORDS HEARD [RHYME TIME] AND SHOULD NOT BE DEFENDIN THEM HERE ON THIS WEBLOG.

BUT ANYWAYS I STAND UP FOR MY FRIENDS LIKE A TRUE BLUE DUDE AND I ALWAYS WILL ITS MY CODE IT IS HOW I LIVE.

FOR SMOLTZY!

That Chipper interview in the AJC was awesome. The best part:

"I’ve been keeping up with the news. I’ve been reading the blogs."

PLEASE TELL ME HE READS WoW.

I'm Not There sucked except for the Cate Blanchett parts.

Let me tell you, a hobo clown and a 10 year old black boy are not Bob Dylan.

Cate Blanchett can be whoever the hell she wants to be.

My favorite Elvis song ever is "Trouble".

Second the motion on Cate Blanchett.

Cate Blanchet is awesome, and everyone should put roasted chicken on hold and eat one of these tonight: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fool%27s_Gold_Loaf

@Gorge
When I was a kid, my mom used to make me peanut butter and bacon sandwiches on occasion. I swear I'm not from Kentucky.

And yes, they're awesome.

Don't make me defend I'm Not There. Because I will. And you'll all think I'm a tool.

This is your last warning.

Too late, Liakos.

Also, I watched Darjeeling Limited and literally cannot remember a single second of the film.

I have a deep sense of guilt over not seeing the Darjeeling Limited yet. It tears me up, I've let a skinny nerd down.

@Gorge
Far. Out.

I'm Not There got lots of local buzz here, with Todd Haynes being a Portlander. I think if I had a better knowledge of Dylan, then I would have liked the film more--but I still enjoyed it. I would much rather watch something like it, than a traditional biopic like Ray.

Two things I am not "cool" or "hip" enough to enjoy: Dylan and Jazz.

Jazz goes best with drugs. I watched raptly as Pharaoh Sanders played a 10 minute solo on a gourd once. Would not have worked nearly as well without a little *ahem* help.

Are we talking weird sandwiches? I've got one: Smush together apricot jam and Stilton with a fork. Spread apricot-and-cheese goop on good toast (white or whole wheat is fine). Yum. Salty, sweet, crunchy, creamy. All your food groups except bacon.

Clare, that sounds good. I knew a German kid in college; he showed everyone a dessert sandwich that kicked ass:

Spread goat cheese and Gnutella on two pieces of bread. Make a sandwich, then butter the outside and grill it like a grilled cheese.

Sounds weird, but the description you just wrote (salty, sweet, creamy) is spot-on. It's good.

Is Gnutella made of gnus?

I know this is late, but Farty, have fun with Giambi again =P

Also, I hate FSU since they beat WI in that bowl game.

From Wiki:

"Gnutella is a hazelnut-chocolate concoction made entirely of freshly born gnus."

KWSN, I will savor all 60 games Giambi plays for us in between DL stints.

I smell "raped by a wallaby" coming up in a "What's up creme puff" report

Fartie, what the hell is going on in Oakland?
Did you start the riots?

Hey kwsn, you're fucking banned.

"I hate FSU since they beat WI in that bowl game."
