Sift Through the Brainstorm Debris – 10.23.12

(By TheWayIsHere)

I decided it wasn’t fair for YetiVedder to have all the bullet-point fun, so I reckon I’ll join in on the fad.

What will you find in this weekly list? I have no freaking clue, but I’m sure it will all be deep and profound.

* My wife always yells at me because I use her towel to dry my arm pits after showering. She does realize that my arm pits are clean, right?

* It’s a sad state of affairs for the two FBS football teams in the state of Massachusetts. Boston College is 0-4 in the ACC and 1-6 overall. UMass is 0-4 in the MAAC and 0-7 overall. According to, Boston College is ranked 110 out of 120 FBS teams. UMass? Ranked 120. Ouch.

* I keep getting random emails from JDate, which is apparently a site for Jewish people. I am neither Jewish nor single, sooo…

* If somebody was smart, they’d create a PoliticalBook for election years. It’s the same basic concept as Facebook, except all of those annoying assholes who fill up your news feed with political posts will have a place to do it where people actually care. It’s a surefire get-rich-quick scheme. You’re welcome.

* Yeti Vedder was sick yesterday, ladies and gentlemen. I want everybody to pray for his return to health.

* I absolutely love that Marco Scutaro was named the National League Championship Series MVP. Scooter, as I like to call him, was one of only a handful of Boston Red Sox who seemed to care last September. While the season was going to hell, Scooter hit .387 with a .438 OBP and 21 RBI in 26 September games.

* Not that any of you care, but my fantasy football season has been agonizing. It started with a trade for Greg Jennings, who proceeded to re-injure his groin and has been sidelined ever since. Then Danny Amendola went down with a rare collarbone injury. DeMarco Murray was torching the Baltimore Ravens before leaving with a foot injury, saddling me with a loss by .5 points. Finally, Jimmy Graham went down with an ankle injury. My team has the talent to compete for the title, but instead we’re just 2-5.

* Cloud Atlas looks bad ass. I have no idea what the plot is, but let’s be honest: Tom Hanks makes any movie watchable.

* Where the hell did that black woman on Dexter come from? It’s like, after Mike Anderson got shot, they realized they didn’t have any African-Americans on the cast so they just tossed in this chick.

* Has anybody ever seen a Boardwalk game piece in the McDonald’s Monopoly game? I’m pretty sure there have never been any.

* If Playstation 3 game lobbies are any indication, most of the American population is wicked racist.

* Want to bid on some memorabilia from Curt Schilling’s failed company? Sure ya do!

* It always depresses me when I watch movies from the 1990s and they show a gas station. Imagine gas prices being .95 cents/gallon again.

* Banger of the Week: Loose Lips Sink Ships by A Change of Pace

About TheWayIsHere

I’d like to think there is a lot to say about myself, but there isn’t. I founded Fifth Period Lunch with the intent on using the internet to spread gospel and the word of the Good Book. I thought He had a plan for me. Whoops. No, I’m just yanking your chain - I’m actually an atheist. Straylight Run’s John Nolan described both of our lives perfectly when he sang, “I know much more than I did back then, but the more I learn, the more I can’t understand. And I’ve become content with this life that I lead, where I drink too much and don’t believe in much of anything.” I’m married and creeping ever closer to the big 3-0. Despite that, I still enjoy acting like a child, to which my wife can attest. I enjoy microbrews, pinot noir, the Boston Red Sox, the New England Patriots and the Wake Forest Demon Deacons. I believe old people should be forced to take a driving test every year and I have a man-crush on more men than I probably should. Now you know.
