Boulevard - the last movie with Robin Williams

tcr! · Jun 18, 2015 at 3:22 pm

Robin Williams’ final movie trailer is out, and it’s wrecking us

In Boulevard, Williams’ character plays an unhappy bank manager named Nolan whose marriage starts rapidly crumbling as soon as he meets Leo. Leo is the catalyst that makes Nolan realize that although he loves his wife —it’s time to confront something he’s been in denial about his entire life: his sexuality.

I Held Her In My Arms by the Violent Femmes

tcr! · Jun 18, 2015 at 3:01 pm

Peeps, everything the Violent Femmes did before 1994 should be in your catalog if it’s not already.

PS- I was with a girl but it felt like I was with a boy.

Yep, yep. They’re the only band I’ve ever seen three times.

Black Girls is one of my absolute favorites. Well, almost all their songs are…but everything’s completely in the pocket the first half and then the second half goes into this chaotic jam session with each instrument taking a turn. I love that all the instruments are familiar but carry a fresh, almost sexual connotation and/or frustration.

And then the third verse lyrics…they were the first time I heard something racially negative about white boys coming from a white boy. :D

Cardinals Face F.B.I. Inquiry in Hacking of Astros' Network

Cardinals Face F.B.I. Inquiry in Hacking of Astros’ Network

WASHINGTON — The F.B.I. and Justice Department prosecutors are investigating whether front-office officials for the St. Louis Cardinals, one of the most successful teams in baseball over the past two decades, hacked into internal networks of a rival team to steal closely guarded information about player personnel.

Investigators have uncovered evidence that Cardinals officials broke into a network of the Houston Astros that housed special databases the team had built, according to law enforcement officials. Internal discussions about trades, proprietary statistics and scouting reports were compromised, the officials said.

The officials did not say which employees were the focus of the investigation or whether the team’s highest-ranking officials were aware of the hacking or authorized it. The investigation is being led by the F.B.I.’s Houston field office and has progressed to the point that subpoenas have been served on the Cardinals and Major League Baseball for electronic correspondence.

“Named but not indicted” is a way of fucking with people. St. Louis, one of the original cities included in the American mafia, has a long history of organized crime. I don’t know and have no opinion on if the story is true. The players on the Cardinals have historically played better, based on the statistics of wins and losses.
The Chicago Cubs have historically been involved in abuse of the livestock, based on journalism and hearsay.

I used to play this theme on my guitar when I was in high school. Because I’m dark like that.

An Airline Passenger Took A Crap So Foul They Had To Land The Plane

An Airline Passenger Took A Crap So Foul They Had To Land The Plane

Having to use an airplane bathroom is indignity enough. Can you imagine what it would do to your self-esteem if your after-stench actually grounded an entire flight full of travelers.

Too much rain

That body of water beyond our backyard generally doesn’t exist.

Living or owning property in Iowa in ‘93 and ‘08 taught me things happen. I know I am correct about ‘93 but I may be a year or 2 or off considering ‘08.

Here’s another photo from that same day. I walked a bit closer to the “lake” and it was a regular cold, bubbling spring.

Funny how, when the retention pond fills up, a crowd will soon gather and go swimming.

As a municipal engineer, I’m gonna say that swimming in the retention pond is NOT recommended. :P

Not recommended from which standpoint?

I’m not trying to be jerky, I’m just completely dumb about such things.

No worries :)

Those ponds perform two functions. First, when you pave an area, water runs off faster and doesn’t soak in. The pond catches the water and releases it slowly so that you don’t have a huge shock to the river. The pond will tend to be subject to sudden changes in water level, which can be dangerous.

Second, as water runs through the streets and storm drains, it picks up all sorts of pollutants, like oil, dog crap, dissolved metals (lead, mercury, etc), bacteria and viruses (such as E.coli and others) and other industrial chemicals and whatnot. The pond is designed to trap these things so that they don’t reach the river. So basically the pond is a stew of things you don’t want on your skin.

Additionally, there is some risk of cross-contamination from the sanitary sewer system (that’s the toilet waste one). And finally, any water body designated for swimming within a city is monitored for bacteria, etc and signs are posted to close the beach if it’s unsafe. Retention ponds are not monitored, so you don’t know if there are dangerous levels of bacteria or algae growth or any of the other stuff water picks up in the streets.

Wonderful writeup! Thankies. And you’re totally right about the sudden changes in water level. I’ve seen it fill to the brim (maybe more than 9’ deep?) in a matter of minutes.

I hadn’t considered the dissolved metals and other fine ingredients aspect.

Let the record show that I have only been in the retention pond once after heavy rains.
