Friday Placeholder Post

Just so there's something at the top of the blog to look at all day that isn't that picture of Roethlisberger frozen in mid-suck: If you didn't see it when it made the Internet rounds a couple months ago, I think you should watch this animated short by James Blagden about Dock Ellis' infamous LSD no-hitter. The Pirates are going to win another World Series before they have another one of him.

Also, the Onion A.V. Club put up their Year in Band Names feature, their most endearing year-in-review list. This year's starts a little slow but make sure you read at least as far as "Computer Jesus Refrigerator" and "Fuckshovel". "John the Raptist" just makes me sad that Flight of the Conchords won't be back for a third season. And I know I've seen signs for a "We Were Promised Jetpacks" show around my neighborhood.

I just listened to a couple of the Jetpacks' songs; not bad, really. Scottish. Looks like they'll be in Portland in March, Nate. They're advertising already?

For my own tastes, for obvious reasons, the band name "florida=DEATH" is appealing. I feel like it's mostly a reference to our highway fatalities, but that could just be my reader-response.

I feel like I saw signs for them a while ago -- maybe they were in town earlier. Or maybe I saw their band name someplace else and confused it with the many, many other goofy band names on utility pole fliers around southeast Portland.
