Weekend W-L Record

Didn't have to work Friday. W!

Spent most of day in heavy traffic. L!

Ordered giant meal from room service on someone else's dime. W!

Meal was mostly good. W!

Caught up with last week's episode of The Office. W!

Episode was not very good. L!

NBC's video-on-demand feature is awful. L!

Saw C.S.A.: Confederate States of America. W!

It wasn't all that great. L!

Forgot to buy kolaches on the way through West. L!

STILL NO MOTHERFUCKING NEW YORK TIMES. L!

Beat solipsiae at Wii table tennis. W!

Was unable to parlay this victory into endorsement deal, cocaine, hookers. L!

Needled Angie about harmless comment in public. W-W-W!

Angie did not burst out crying and scream "I HATE YOU, LEONARD ALLEN PIERCE!" L!

This might just be because she doesn't know that my middle name is Allen! W!

Dude, for a Rockstar game? That table tennis shit was WEAK. Next time it's Wii Sports tennis. None of this table shit.

I have taken note of your middle name, and if a scene is what you want next time, a scene is what you will get, by gum!

That Table Tennis game is supposed to have some crazy sophisticated game engine, only it's dedicated to, you know, table tennis. OH ALSO! Last night even though I was totally exhausted from the road, I had to play some GHIII, and I finally got TWO goddamn perfect scores! On "Sunshine of Your Love" and "My Name is Jonas", admittedly, but still.

I'm always up for a terrible scene in public with tears and recrimination. Especially if it's fake.

Heyyy, nice! On medium? I think I want to try practicing on hard. I want to GET BETTER.

I've beaten GHII on Hard (I don't think I'll ever do it in GHIII -- the Level 8 songs are too difficult; I've gotten there but no further), although it's mostly by barely surviving the worst passages enough to get a 3-star crappy barely-pass song-finish. But I just don't have the coordination to do any better.

I watched CSA a week or two ago, and aside from the spotty production standards, what struck me about it was that the most powerful part of the film's message was the end cap where they noted the slave iconography used in the past, and still being used right under people's noses. I think the film could have been 30 minutes shorter, with 30 minutes more of them pointing out that Uncle Ben's rice hated negroes.

Michael very slowly and very gravely pushing Toby's lunch off the table.

Point, set, match.

Also props to Ryan's tableful of clones, and Toby's laughter at the revelation of Michael's mancrush on Ryan.

I thought it was a terrific episode.

It had its moments, and the whole cafeteria scene was just priceless, but the deposition was more painful than funny (and way too long), the ending went for pathos instead of humor, and the ping-pong subplot just drrrrrrrrrrrrrragged. It wasn't terrible, but it's also the last episode we're gonna get until the strike is over, so I wish it had been better.

Welp, I got as far as the title of the very first thread (Slavery was not an issue for the Civil War) before my Faith-in-humanitometer dribbled away to zero and I gave up.

OH WAIT!
Historical fact- at the time of the Civil War, there were MORE black servants in the northern states. Higher populations, wealthier families, more politicians, most of whom had black servants (and KEPT them even after the war!). One can make the argument that the North had 'servants' and the South had 'slaves'. Don't waste my time with a nit-picking argument like that.
