    The 2006-2008 series that KC12 briefly references (not “Robin of Sherwood” but “Robin Hood”) is entertaining, especially Keith Allen’s take on the Sheriff of Nottingham.

    Yeah, it’s easily the best album of like 1976. :D

    I don’t think he knows what he wants. If he really sincerely doesn’t want a war he could do a lot to de-escalate the situation, including firing John Bolton.

    Bruce Springsteen - Western Stars

    This album is goddamn fantastic. Hotblack in particular should stop whatever he’s doing and give it a spin.

    Nixon and Kissinger might have cared about carefully-crafted bullshit cover stories, but the Johnson Administration was pretty blasť about it.

    Haven’t traveled a lot in the South, but I have to disagree. Or at least put plugs in for Nashville, which seemed pretty cool, and DC, Baltimore, and Miami (not sure whether those last three meet the...

    His no-trade clause (really more of a “make it worth my while if you trade me here” clause) includes most of the likely playoff teams. He’s probably not worth anything except to a contender, but like...
