I'm so embarrassed for Georgia. But then we made Rick and Morty happen, so there's that.
This video was my first exposure to Rick and Morty, but then we signed up for Hulu again and they have the whole series.

So we binge-watched it a weekend or 2 ago, and when it got to that final ep...

Frank Ocean just (it's like two years late or something), and the last song is obviously for me specifically, because we're BFsF. (It starts at about 38:00 in or so.)

PS EDIT I keep forgetting to celebrate page 666 of Miscellany. :rockout2::torte::rockout2:

I tried to come in to correct myself before, but the power went out! Let's see if I can do that again.

Turns out this is a different thing, and the album is going to come out this weekend. (Also, it's FOUR years late, not two.)

I'll bet this is to prepare everyone for a genre switch. Frank Ocean is about to drop a full album of Scheissegedichte.

Yeah, I like how that guy uses that periods for emphasis thing so we know what a great affront it is when someone ignores some old-timey prescriptive rule.

But humans are animals, so maybe that was supposed to be ironimical?

I happened upon this photo of an ariel tennis court in the clickbait that lurks demeaningly at the bottom of even the most serious articles on the the websites of our most august journals:



... and I thought "That's a stupid court—it's a joke, right?"

Joke, publicity stunt—same thing. Turns out, the hotel's helipad was briefly converted into a tennis court for a photo op in 2005 and the guys in the pic are Federer and Agassi. And no, they didn't play "a tennis match"; they just knocked a few balls about for the cameras, did a piece to camera, and went back inside. So now you don't need to click that bait.

And these four or five ravens are all OH NO YOU DIN'T, and the hawk's like A-BLOO A-BLOO A-BLOO WAAAAAH And quoth the ravens, OH NO YOU DIN'T and they kept at it until the hawk flies off, and the ravens chase it, like, really far!

At our old house, the crows (or ravens--from what I understand, it's just a matter of a pinion)--attacked hawks daring to rest on our property. Mrs. S watched them knock one out of the sky.

I usually call our guys crows, but please don't tell any nerds that.

I'm 99% sure they're ravens because they are YUGE and have curved beaks and they scream like ravens do. And they run this place. When they get some roadkill in the middle of the street, they make the traffic go around them, and one once started to fight me for a baguette in a parking lot, but I chickened out and let him have the whole thing.

I do like the hawks too and as much as I try not to root for one side over another, damn, I would like to see them knock a hawk out of the sky. That's hardcore.

Until they were completely out of sight! So pretty far!

And then I hear this WEE WEEE WEEEEE, and am like, "But who was hawk?" and I look, and just a block over, there are still three hawks right over there! So they didn't even come help their friend or whatever!
