Retrophisch

There have been some changes.

Game day for High Point Hockey in Knoxville as they take on Tennessee. Rooting for our hockey player in his third outing of the season. www.highpointhockey.com/articles/…

The Dallas Stars need to dump the garish, all-“Victory” green jerseys and make these reverse retro unis their full-time dark attire. So sharp.

Today was repping Stryper, but tomorrow will be time to promote the release of Les Carlsen’s new album, “He’s Coming!”

Once again, satire hits hard.

We were picked to finish last or next-to-last. Instead, #LSU beat Bama and won the SEC West. We over-achieved per expectations. Players bought in to the system. Now they need to develop within it. Future looks good. #GeauxTigers

It’s a game played by kids, half of them teenagers. Hormones. Brains not fully developed. There are perfect games, and there are absolute duds.

Don’t let your happiness be dictated by the outcome of such. Enjoy it for what it is. There’s always next season. #ForeverLSU

ESPN taking lessons from CBS on how to unnecessarily extend a college football game in this #LSU - TAMU contest…

Alright! @SouthernU_FB wins the Bayou Classic! #GeauxJags

Calling your movie “the motion picture event of a generation” before it’s even released is a sure-fire way for me to not to pay to see it. #Avatar2

This is some masterful trolling of the highest order.

Hey @nfl, this isn’t the Super Bowl. It’s Thanksgiving Day games. Enough with the extended live music halftimes. Get back to football.

You know, the word that stands for that middle initial?

Even a homicidal weather AI knows what’s up with the #WorldCup.

Like, I don’t think Beckham is acting at all. I think you see his genuine frustration in having to be in a commercial with Peyton Manning.

Pairing David Beckham with Peyton Manning may be one of the most genius marketing moves ever.

Vandy just beat Florida in Nashville for the first time since 1988.

I was a freshman in college.

I unapologetically love the opening of Avenged Sevenfold’s “Hail to the King,” the way they build it one instrument at a time, layering one on another, until you get Johnny’s bass dropping just over 50 seconds in. Great stuff. youtu.be/DelhLppPS…

Like, I already don’t understand how you could listen to @TheDollyrots and not get a smile on your face, but if you watch them just being themselves and don’t grin, brother, you need to get out more! youtu.be/QpKL5Jcm0…

Welp, pretty great winning the SEC West in the first year of a new head coach when all the sports writers and “experts” picked you to finish next to last in the division. #GeauxTigers #GTHOM

There have been lots of “Steve would’ve never!” type posts and articles published since Jobs' death, but I really wonder if he would’ve stood for this sort of thing. www.bloomberg.com/news/arti…

Thinking of turning off cross-posting to Twitter and Mastodon from Micro.blog. The paragraph formatting never seems to make it. Not sure if that’s a limitation on Micro.blog’s part, or the APIs @manton has to deal with from the other services.

“Any last words, Winston?”

“Have fun out there.”

Hell. Yes.

And with zero apologies to U2, the better cover of “Helter Skelter” belongs to the Crüe.

Got it in my head to listen to some Crüe while working today. Apple Music has the 2021 remaster of Shout at the Devil, and let me tell you, “Looks That Kill” still kicks major butt.

Moreso with cleaned up production.
