Rooting for in the World Cup

US and Brazil. Then, any team from Africa. After that, in any particular match, the team from the poorer country. It did seem a bit unseemly to have US fans going crazy when we defeated...Ghana.

A new rule for posting at the mothership, it seems. Or at least if there's to be criticism of a certain political figure. Should be fun.

I say Spurs in 5 if Tony Parker is healthy. If not, then a tossup.

Another typepad issue. Bummer, just were getting going on the TNC/Reparations discussion.

It appears the Mothership is back up!

Not unique to ObWi, AFAICT. Chat away here in the meantime (or not).

The Walking Dead

Apr 09, 2014 by Ugh | Add comment
Anyone watch the Walking Dead? I'm only 1/3 of the way through the third season, so no recent spoilers, please. The overall set up of the show is kind of fascinating, as it seems they can do whatever they want. They don't provide much background on "what happened," so they are free to set up situations with impunity as you don't really know how many survivors or zombies there are, or what condition the world in general is in. So, if zombies show up out of now where, completely plausible. If there's an oasis somewhere (however permanent or temporary), similarly plausible. They also can introduce new characters at will for these reasons and, perhaps more importantly, kill them off, often in the most heart-wrenching of ways. Good stuff.
