Re: Association Football Thread

Hard luck USA I think Netherlands experience showed. However USA can be proud of this side. A young side that shows real promise in my opinion. In 2026 this team will be a force. Hello, Agreed. We need a finisher. Pulisic is a good set-up guy. We'll be better in 2026. Tritto (and thanks for the kin...

Re: Flex's Ultimate 25 Days of Christmas (Songs) World Cup: NOMINATIONS AND QUALIFIERS

I was going to avoid this because I know it will somehow devolve into Slade or Greg Lake winning despite being far from the best or even great. But in the spirit of something here I go. KIhIBFPtnoc Cmzn8JfV_fk Great picks. A heavy hitter and a compelling cover of a heavy hitter. I'll second these n...

30th anniversary edition.
How's the 30th anniversary edition? Very underrated band, imho. Got some shit as pretty boy sellouts but the "big label" records were still good.

How didn't I know the new (final?) Nofx album is out? Or even on the way?
I, myself, only learned this 5 minutes ago so you aren't alone. We're getting old and out of touch, Kory.

Re: The most important Americans of the past 75 years

As much as I hate saying this, I think we may have to consider Kanye. He is almost singlehandedly making antisemitism fashionable again - he has certainly paved the way for people to come out of the woodwork.

Re: Deep Bob Dylan Theory 2012

Sorry for sharing something so normcore, but here's an SNL guy doing impressions of Bob Dylan singing Jingle Bells throughout different phases of his career (Dylan stuff starts around 6:10):

Re: The most important Americans of the past 75 years

For what it's worth, I gave my list to my students and picked Hefner, Nixon, Manson, and Malcolm X, and then said either Friedman or Clinton (she represents both the gutted yet predominant form of faux feminism that emerged from 2nd wave struggles, but is also, ironically, the face of those who des...

Re: Anarchism, Marxism and Radical Politics

I've told students before that the huge, massive, colossal flaw in the right's claim that there's a left-wing conspiracy, like, everywhere is that actual left-wingers couldn't organize a bar trivia night without falling into pointless factionalism. It'd be kind of neat if the left were as united an...

Flex's Ultimate 25 Days of Christmas (Songs) World Cup: NOMINATIONS AND QUALIFIERS

That's right folks! Last year I think I only got through about 1/2 the month of my usual Christmas song advent calendar type thread, and there's no chance I have the time to do a daily share again this year. BUT, I want to do something fun and, well, there's a big tournament on your teevee right now...

Elvis popularized Colorado's own banana, bacon and peanut butter sandwich. That's gotta count for something.

Re: The most important Americans of the past 75 years

Yeah, Bing might scrape a little too far into the past. I dunno if I just wasn't doing the math right or not thinking that his most influential period would have been in the 30s (ditto FDR, obviously, predates the 75 year cutoff). But it's interesting to suggest that in order for someone to be impor...

Re: The most important Americans of the past 75 years

Yeah, Frank definitely started out as a Teen Idol. I think that was a distinction between him and Bing from just a few years earlier, frankly. I dunno if I'd really nominate him, but how about Henry Kissinger for an honorable mention (if he qualifies, born in Germany but became a U.S. citizen). Besi...
