Friday Bon Mots & Bullshit, 11/4

CUBS WIN! And you don’t have to be a fan of the team, hell, or even a baseball fan, to appreciate and enjoy the moment and the magnitude of their first World Series win in 108 years! Plus, watching the games on Fox is always amazing – the camera work, attention to little details and Joe Buck and John Smoltz are great. Though Alex Rodriguez and Pete Rose doing analysis? And lifelong Cubs fan Bill Murray is a national treasure, and a saint.

MY CLOCK RADIO wakes me up to the 89.3 The Current, and in a stupor at 4:30 a.m. yesterday I realized it was really good. And later in the day I found out it’s a brand new song from Tommy Stinson’s band Bash & Pop. And I can’t stop listening to it.

LET’S TRY THIS AGAIN  A new episode of the WSD podcast is up.

HE MISSED THE FIRST FOUR GAMES but Tom Brady will likely be a favorite to be the NFL MVP. Which is insane – he missed a 1/4 of the season and will probably throw close to 40 touchdowns.

SPEAKING OF FOOTBALL The Dallas Cowboys are 6-1 and playing the Browns this week. 6-1, that’s not a typo; this team is very good. For several reasons I haven’t been into football that much this season. But I’m now warming up!

A GREAT SMASHING PUMPKINS SONG, “That’s The Way My Love Is” from 2009, renders moot the bemoaning from some that the band hasn’t done anything good from the mid-nineties. Powerful and melodic, with touching and bittersweet lyrics.

NO POLITICS HERE except to say that everything about the presidential campaign is tiring…exhausting, really.

AFTER THINKING ABOUT THAT I want to watch cats jumping.
