i am enjoying my "new car" now that older one left for college. Subaru WRX.

i get it for at least a year until younger one learns to drive. and since it is a stick my wife is not inclined to drive it much, even though she was originally excited about the prospect of learning and driving a sportier car.

WaPo notes how (un)successful new Trump Kise is doing counseling his client. WaPo noted that Kise has given Trump good advice - keep his mouth/Truth finger quiet to keep from incriminating himself and stop being so combative with the Federal government. But it also noted that Kise refused to sign his last filing, which was quite combative as Trump appears to prefer to listen to Halligan, Corcoran, Bobb, Epshteyn, and Trusty who pander to Trump's whims. And pandering to Trump's whim is putting his lawyers in legal peril as Bobb had to get a lawyer as she was a note taker during meetings for the fake-electors scheme. Epshteyn had his phone seized by the FBI. And Corcoran is under investigation for obstruction of returning documents to the government. MAGA - Making Attorneys Get Attorneys.

I made a very good decision to skip the Cal game to catch The B-52s' farewell tour in DC on Saturday. They were as fun and irreverent as ever. Great set, and Cindy Wilson was killing it on vocals. 19/19

Went to the All Things Go one day festival on Saturday. Thoughts as follows:

I wasn't familiar with Faye Webster or Lucy Dacus, not my usual cup of tea, but I enjoyed their sets. Hippo Campus and King Princess were supremely ignorable. Mitksi... I have enjoyed some of her tracks; I HATED her performance. Like, might never listen to her music again hated. Bleachers was like a really good Jersey bar band but my dudes, you can't tell the crowd to get hyped if they aren't' with you already. And Lorde was fantastic.

House of the Dragon: it's possible that Rhaenyra might be exceptionally stupid. Every decision is bad and backfires.

My only issue is that in the 10 year jump, Rhaenyra went from looking like the little feral boy in Mel Gibson’s Road Warrior to an actress that now bore little to no resemblance…they might as well have cast Jessica Chastain.

I just watched last week's episode and had the exact same response. It took me a solid 10min to be 100% sure it was the same character. Also the king not dying after he collapses at the end of Ep 6 and then having a ten year jump and he's still kicking seemed rather silly.

Iowa's physical mascot is Herky the Hawk and they use a hawk's head as their icon. However, the Hawkeyes are not named after a hawk. It is named after Natty Bumpo's nickname from James Fenimore Cooper's "The Last of the Mohicans."

I was surprised how competitive this game was. This plus the game at OSU brings SC down to Earth for me. Their D is only so so. They may win the conference, but I don’t think they are a national title contender at all. They could easily lose to one/more/all of UCLA, Oregon, Utah, UW, Wazzu (assuming they play them, not sure of schedule)

Expand full comment

I don't know what counts as "mainstream" or perhaps more appropriately "sane" opinion among my fellow alumni, but the defense seemed like the obvious weak point before the season started, like the plan *had* to be "score early score often" to stay in games. I've frankly been surprised that it's gone as well as it has so far, the halftime changes in scheme 1) happening and 2) seeming to work are a bit of a novelty after the previous regime. Given how pathetic the last couple of years were, winning the conference would be a delight (for me that is). This team is nowhere near national championship calibre and that's completely okay.

Expand full comment

They definitely look leaps and bounds better than last year, and are in the top band of PAC 12 teams for sure. But I think if they played Georgia or something the result would likely be similar to what happened to Oregon

F1: Sergio Perez wins the Singapore Grand Prix thanks to a steady, consistent performance on a slick, difficult street circuit

https://www.thedrive.com/accelerator/sergio-perez-pulls-off-masterful-win-at-rain-soaked-singapore-f1-gp

he rain-soaked 2022 Singapore F1 grand prix got off to a late, messy start. What wasn't messy, though, was Red Bull driver Sergio Perez's driving. Perez started in P2 but quickly jumped ahead of Ferrari's Charles Leclerc at the start of the race, giving himself a lead he never relinquished. Despite a humid, soggy track that wouldn't dry up until the final laps, Sergio Perez's masterful driving held off an almost equally brilliant performance by Leclerc to take the win in Singapore.

“It was certainly my best performance, I controlled the race. The last few laps were so intense. I gave it everything for the win today,” said Perez after the race. However, there's a chance Perez's hard-fought win could be taken away, due to a potential penalty for possibly driving too close to one of the day's many safety cars. For some reason, the powers that be at the FIA decided to make their decision regarding Perez's fate until after the race, so we have to wait until later in the day to see if Perez's victory stands.
