Potpourri

Ok, so this post isn’t actually about potpourri. Rather, it’s just a mix of a bunch of stuff that I’ve collected over the last two weeks.

  1. The Pirates won again tonight (2nd in a row) after losing 6 straight, including being swept again by the Cubs. Matt Morris and Adam LaRoche are officially terrible. Nate McLouth, Xavier Nady, and Ryan Doumit are awesome.
  2. I had thought about starting a new segment on my blog where I post a line from a song to see if people can figure out what song it’s from. Then, I realized that, in the age of the internet, that task is trivially easy. I had planned on using the line “Who put the shield around the ‘k’?”, from “K for Karnival” by Nothing Painted Blue but just typing the line into Google gives you the answer. Curse you, internet.
  3. I also thought about introducing a repeating segment in which I would post a picture as a RAW file and have people submit their take on it. I may still do this if people are interested.
  4. On Patriot’s Day our family had an outing to see the Boston Marathon. On our way home, I saw this:

    That’s right, a “Wii Sports” jacket. Now, I like my Wii as much as the next guy, but I’m not about to wear something like this.  That said, the “Wii Sports” jacket is a step above the bowling pin costume I saw the same day:

    Alright.  I think that’s enough for now.  I’ll post more when the mood strikes.

    Aww, a K Records reference. That line is mentioned in the K Records wikipedia article, I think.

    You could still have it, but people would have to promise not to use google.

    Andy might be in for the RAW photo thing–I’m not as 31337 at photoshop.

    Adrian, you’re right about the wikipedia entry. That’s one of the places that line shows up in a google search.

    Maybe I’ll do the RAW thing if I take a picture that I really want but just can’t get to look decent. I’m not sure if I have any of those right now.
