re: What is it with people who don't like music? - Baloo
Yeah, I'd worry about a person who doesn't like ANY music. It's one thing to not like the same kind of music as another, that happens all the time. But to feel no emotional connection to music? That's... I don't know, it feels like a personal who is closed off to a huge part of the human experience....

re: The John Candy Man Can Appreciation Thread - Baloo
Yeah, the Martin Knelman book about Candy being a sad clown has been widely discredited. I'm not going to say Candy was never depressed or didn't struggle with his weight, but I don't think it was nearly as defining to him as the author wanted it to be. If anything, Candy was a hedonist, trying to s...

re: Jon Stewart's Final Week on The Daily Show - Baloo
The show will be missed because there's nothing like it on TV. Sure, it's liberal satire, but as many have pointed out, the other liberal satire shows are uniformly terrible (except for John Oliver). He was a vital day-in, day-out media critic who called the networks out on their propaganda and bull...

re: New Ghostbusters in Uniform at Boston Hospital - Baloo
[quote]I'm going by Paul Feig's movie history.[/quote] He's directed three films: Spy, The Heat, and Bridesmaids. Bridesmaids was really funny, and I haven't seen the other two (and really have no desire to see Heat). He also was the co-creator of Freaks and Geeks, which was awesome, and beloved ...

re: Jason Isbell has the #1 record in country music - Baloo
He fits in more with the burgeoning "Americana" genre. Isbell fits nicely with acts like the Avett Brothers, which don't really have a comfortable home either on traditional country or rock radio. I like when genre distinctions break down. ...

re: Is rap/hip-hop the only genre with 'diss tracks'? - Baloo
"I Hate Led Zeppelin" by Screeching Weasel. A lot of "Range Life" by Pavement makes fun of successful acts like Smashing Pumpkins ("they don't serve no function"), but I don't think they actually had a beef with Billy Corgan, they just used band names that flowed well ("Stone Temple Piltos, they'...

re: Jennings only threw one interception over the last 7 games last year - Baloo
Well, I also threw in his terrible passing yard stats. But let's do more, only using the last 7 games: He never threw for a 60% completion rate in ANY of the last 7 games. Though he did once dip to 30.8%. He had a completion percentage of 50% or lower in FIVE of the last seven games (and a tru...

re: Jennings only threw one interception over the last 7 games last year - Baloo
It's also not true. He threw 2 picks v. Ole Miss, 1 against Bama, and 1 against A&M. In the last 7 games of the year, he threw 4 picks against 6 TD's. His highest yardage total was 151. ...

[quote]2. Baltimore Orioles (53-50) - 17.6% 3. Toronto Blue Jays (53-52) - 49.9% [/quote] Anyone else find that odd? The O's have a one game lead over the Jays, yet the BP odds have the Jays nearly three times as likely to make the playoffs. I call BS. Of course, the predictive stats have h...

re: Reasons for Optimism in 2015 (Not for the Faint of Heart) - Baloo
[quote]Anway, our QB play was so bad last year, anything short of the single greatest offseason improvement in history, we can still expect at least 2 losses solely due to qb play.[/quote] While I do believe Jennings is a lost cause, players who post a completion percentage below 50% rarely turn ...

re: Big Ten wants to eliminate FCS opponents - Baloo
This is one of those things that sounds good that does nothing to solve the actual problem with OOC scheduling. Frankly, I could not care less whether your rent-a-win is an FCS team or from the Sun Belt or MAC. In fact, most top tier FCS schools are BETTER than lower tier MAC schools. But let's even...
