    RIP Roy Clark

    I grew up in the late '60s/early '70s listening to almost nothing but country music thanks to my father. One of his favorites was Roy Clark. In fact Dad met him at a small northern Indiana airport once. I think he was continuing up to Ft. Wayne for a show. I can't stand country music to this day but I recognized even back then that Roy Clark was a virtuoso. And his name will always evoke memories of my Dad. RIP Roy.

    Whats YOUR Champions universe like?

    Our world ( I say "our" because I co-GM with a friend) is much like you described yours, an homgae to DC and Marvel. My co-deity prefers the more epic DC style where the heroes are icons, the ultimate heroes; whereas I like "the world outside your window" Marvel style where the heroes are normal people who happen to have powers. So we've split GM duties: he runs an epic, high-powered, world-altering team based in NYC while I run a more modest, more localized team based in Indianapolis. They share a universe but not a tone. We have created everything from scratch, we don't use the official Champions Universe, although I have pilfered and adapted a handful of characters from various villains books and other supplements.

  5. That's kinda how I feel. I was done rooting for somebody when the Astros got bumped. I'm still going to watch the games because it's the World Series dammit and it's a long cold winter until Spring Training. I guess I'll be rooting for good baseball.

    This movie has one of my favorite lines of all time. I forget how the conversation starts but Tatum's grifter father in the film (played by her real-life father Ryan) says, "I've got scruples. Do you know what scruples are?" She replies, "No but if you've got 'em it's a sure bet they belong to somebody else."
  7. Actually a Cubs fan's normal state now is to expect a playoff appearance, so...that's how far we've come. Five years ago a single-game playoff appearance would've been good enough, now we have been conditioned by success to view anything other than another WS win as a disappointment. Times have changed. I'm not sure I agree with the animus toward game 163s. Since it's to determine the division winner it is nice that the season record reflects a clear winner and not a statistical tie. OTOH, I wouldn't mind if they used head-to-head record instead because that one game screws up the playoff rotations and schedules of the teams involved. Also, in 1962 $125k was the 2018 equivalent of just over $1 million so while that still means Koufax was underpaid, we don't have to feel all that sorry for him.
  8. My Cubs squandered a chance to win the division. Argh. I hate the one-game wild card.

    Love this movie, I'm a big Cary Grant fan. I've seen it half a dozen times, at least. I've finally started watching Supernatural at the behest of both of my daughters. I'm most of the way through Season 2. It's essentially The X-Files without the FBI. In fact they scoff at the idea of aliens, which I thought was a strange hubris since they deal with all manner of weirdo stuff. The episodes are a bit uneven but the main characters are charming enough that I've not bailed on it yet.

    I'm old

    I've worn them for about five years now, since I was 50. I was never bothered by them. I was so happy to be able to hear normally again that I didn't care what it took. I'm much more bothered by my bald head, and I've had to live with that since I was about 30.

    Order of the Stick

    "I mean, of course I'm right, duh, still a god." A subtle call-back to Monty Python and the Holy Grail? GOD: Right! Arthur, King of the Britons, your Knights of the Round Table shall have a task to make them an example in these dark times. ARTHUR: Good idea, O Lord! GOD: 'Course it's a good idea!
