Fnarf is filling out this box labeled "What are you doing right now, Fnarf?"

Kraft blue box.

One can tuna (Trader Joe's Yellowfin is good).

One cup frozen peas.

@98, you're impossible. It's more stimulating to argue with Seattleblues, and more fun to argue with Will in Seattle. You're just...nonentical. I am bored. I need a better class of people to talk to.

@93, you're still alive, so I have no qualms about telling you that you're an asshole, and a stupid person, and stupid people like you who can't understand anything and love dribbling terrible-smelling gunk into conversations for no reason are exactly why I want nothing to do with Slog anymore. Because you're here.

@83, you're very welcome, although you bring up another sore subject -- the way Questionland was just killed one merry day without so much as a goodbye. Yes, I know their "server crashed", but servers crash all the time without killing everything forever. We put a lot of work into that site -- it was remarkable how the Seattle Questionland outstripped the Portland and other (Pittsburgh? Baltimore?) sites by a factor of at least a hundred, both in quantity of posts and quality. Sort of like how Slog was so much better than any of its semi-equivalents in literally any other city in the country. In the world.

@67, arguing from wins and losses is some cutting edge 1910s statistics, all right. And your comeback @78 just goes to establish that not only do you not understand the subject at hand, your basic grasp of the facts is wrong. You said Felix pitched less; he pitched more.

Felix was the better pitcher. And people who count wins and losses should have their votes taken away from them.

@41, what @50 said. Felix wuz robbed. By morons.

@39, as a record nerd myself, I take issue with your characterization of the obscure 45s posts. They are muy bueno. I only wish they covered a little bit more ground (i.e., dweeby pop, salsa and Latin, country, etc.) than just the garage stuff. But Nipper is an blogging angel and always will be.

@21, I had my differences with 5280 -- nothing BUT differences, for the most part -- but I am very sad to hear that he has died. Like his views or not, he's one of us, and always will be.

@19, there used to be a great one, called "Slog", which attracted national attention but never lost its regional following. They had a really vibrant commenting circle, too, which is where the real interest comes from. Whatever happened to them?

@14 partly nails it with "careful". First the photos went; Slog used to have interesting pictures from all over, but the lawyers put the kibosh on that. Then the content got narrower and narrower too. Losing the people they've lost over the past six months or so has really hurt. They're like a championship team that's gotten old or traded away; they need to bring in a star or two, either from outside or (better) developed from within. I feel like the range of interests and depth of knowledge have gone -- not completely, but enough to fall into the second division.

@6, I'd come back if there were waitron and supermarket checker crushes mixed in. I don't get to bars very often these days. And everyone wants to know which local service workers elderly white men find stimulating, yeah?

Hi, guys!



Yeah, I lost interest in Slog, and this time I think it's permanent. There's nothing that interests me here anymore, and the stuff that does interest me attracts the same old comments from the same old commenters. Some of you I miss a great deal. Others, not so much.



Hey, speaking of Will, he's going around Facebook claiming to have ahold of "secret documents" detailing all sorts of felony tax criminality by Mitt Romney and Jeb Bush, which is going to blow the whole scene open, man. Which is pretty far-fetched, even for Will. I mean, if you were looking in America for a person to hold onto secret documents, he'd be about 300 millionth in line. So I get that entertainment without having to visit Slog.



Slog seems to be pulling back from almost everything interesting these days. It's all sensationalism and knee-jerking. There's nothing personal anymore. very little that's connected to anything I care about. I miss reading Paul Constant, but even he, I think, is suffering from having to crank out a hundred thousand words a day. Everybody else is gone. Except the ever-increasing waves of hateful wingnut trolls. There's only so much racist bullshit you can wade through before you lose your pep.



And yeah, the astrology. Straw that broke the camel's back. Fuck that shit. Fuck Rob Breszny.
