commented on Grateful Deed: Jerry Garcia Guitar Being Auctioned Off to Benefit Southern Poverty Law Center
I thought Wandering Stars had done too many acid trips when I tried to place the timeframe around Edie Brickell. Then after a quick Wikipedia lookup that showed her as breaking out in 1988, apparently I'm the one who took too much blotter...
One show I was waltzing through the gate and a guard grabbed me. I wasn't holding anything, but I had eaten mushrooms with my high school bestie Alex in the lot with his college older brother. I was on the edge of feeling the effects and thought I was going to have a heart attack. The guard reached into my German Army cargo shorts pocket, and pulled out... my retainer case. Which was empty since I was wearing my retainers, having just had my braces taken off a few days prior. I pointed to the wires keeping my smile intact, he rolled his eyes, handed my case back, and sent me into the maw of the stadium.
commented on New National Poll Says Americans are Just About Ready to Impeach Trump
I really don't think he will last very long even without impeachment. Political office at higher levels is actually a great deal of work, and one is in the spotlight at all times. It's not fun like making fictional TV. He will probably step down, due to some sort of 'illness' or whatever his handlers can come up with. Then we get Pence, who will attempt to create a war as quickly as possible to get people to rally around the administration.
commented on Under Armour Supports Trump, So Stop Buying Their Shit
UA has sucked for years so no surprise they have an asshat at the helm. Shock Doctor has some really good compression gear, although they got bought out last year so hopefully their shit will continue to be good.
@2 Your key phrase is "used to," but not sure how to advise.

@5: I missed your part about the repubs wanting civil war... perhaps in the context of Bannon, but for the rest of them, not so much. A nice war out in the sandbox on the other hand, they would all love to support. So when their intentional incompetence results in another 9/11, I think it's more important to point fingers at republicans and shout loudly, "It was all YOUR fucking fault!" Division in this case would be a much better thing instead of meekly going along with the patriotism.
commented on Today, in More Things Donald Trump is Wrong About
@Cat, Brooklyn, I'm totally baffled at the people who consider his speeches to be "fascinating." Remember the slowed down versions that were hitting the interwebs a few months ago? He sounded like an insane drunk.
