They're actually handling this pretty well. They're realistic about why Georgia is losing its in-state talent, etc. Props to them for not going super neg nuclear retard.
So...you're a big fan of The Doors?

Flipping the Bird: A GQ History of Our Country's Proud Heritage
Goddamnit, it's "flip" someone the bird or finger. As in "I flipped him off". Christ...leftcoaster.
Lawn, get off it.
Or you can just go to longform.org which is a site that compiles longer pieces of excellent journalism and fiction from various pubs. It's a must see if you can't stand the usual three paragraph clickbait articles on most sites. Quite a few of DJ's links are represented there.
Yeah yeah, something something grammar police. Get off my lawn.
Bosa's sentiment vibes with something Urban Meyer said two days earlier.
You mean "jibes"?
3rd person present: jibes
be in accord; agree.
"the verdict does not jibe with the medical evidence"
synonyms: agree, be in accord, be consistent, square, fit
"their story doesn't quite jibe with the evidence"
The fictional citizens of Innisfree would never have been so unkind. ("The Quiet Man")
Can we get "El Chaleco" shirts in the 11w Dry Goods emporium?
The Vietnam Novel WMD:
"The 13th Valley" (mentioned in the article) was my first foray into Vietnam War lit. I was 13 when I read it and it spawned an interest that has encompassed well over 100 books, a BA in History, and continues to this day. The depth and breadth of both academic tomes and personal memoirs regarding almost every aspect of that war is amazing.
I've started on our recent conflicts in the Middle East but have yet to find something that compares to "Street without Joy","The Things they Carried", "Dispatches", etc. I'm sure some great stuff will surface with time.
I promise I wasn't scolding. I'll be checking SPD's AMA 12 for teen insight also if it happens. I'm very glad you are also a reader. Was sincerely just wondering if SP was someone "big" and I had missed it.
VS;DR Keep doing you!
Being a reader but not a devoted forum haunter could you tell me if SP is an ex- OSU player or something? Some of us might have missed this key point and have been wondering why a reader's daughter gets two AMAs (though the first was pretty damn entertaining)?
Tolkien's mythology. I'm talking about the gods and creation stories from the Silmarillion. Sort of the Greek Pantheon filtered through Norse sagas. But with one true "creator" over all. Manwe as Zeus, Ulmo as Neptune/Poseidon, etc. Really entertaining.
The guy's a new personal hero of mine. All of what he does just so these unwanted kids can know love. Screw the dust or onions excuses: I was tearing up and quietly sobbing.
Maybe gestated, or percolated? I feel where you're going but can't find it either.
You win. Shades of Leslie Nielsen
Get your eyes checked: that's obviously the Dad from The Wonder Years
A link to a pro environmental/anti environmental terrorist screed wrapped in few paragraphs and metaphors about scythes?
You a closet intellectual DJ? Been slumming with us? Fake Four Loko?
Did you just come out of the intellectual closet, or did your library card grant you Yoda status?
As in "Just a tip from your Uncle Lar"? I quote that all the time to my kids when I give them dumb tips.
That's a huge part of Burr's act: make the outlandish statement to shock, and then work his way through it till you see his point, and that he's mostly mocking at/laughing at his own extreme viewpoints and stupidity. Love him.
His first three specials are really topnotch. The last two are ok. His podcast is great.
My fave episode was Alec Baldwin's...he would be a fun hang.
Kyle Kinane.This whole hour set is superb, low key, real, unique.
Burr, Stanhope, Chapelle, Emo Phillips, Dom Irrera, Dangerfield, Maria Bamford, etc. Could go on and on. There's a comedy radio station here in Phx that's excellent (think it's nationally syndicated); I probably listen to that more than all other genres combined.
