This blog has been dominated by comic books and depression for the last month, and it occurred to me that I haven't really touched on anything else so this is a sort of catch-all post of things that I ordinarily probably would have discussed.
One thing I have been reluctant to discuss with anyone about the severity of my depression is that in the last month, I heard voices. Nothing actually speaking to me or anything like that; more like when someone else is in another room and you catch the sound of their voice for just a moment. Well, I awoke nauseated today so I took a Promethazine and went back to bed. Just as I was about to fall asleep, I heard it again.
"Kirk to Enterprise!"
2011 World Series
I'm a National League guy, always have been. But my contempt for the St. Louis Cardinals (specifically, Tony LaRussa, Chris Carpenter and Yadier Molina) has compelled me to root for the Texas Rangers, which places me in the unusual position of actively rooting for the same team as George W. Bush. So be it.
|What the hell were they talking about and|
why does Dubya look like Nick Nolte?
During Game Five, Rangers pitcher Derek Holland did an impression of Harry Caray that Twitter rightly pointed out was really an impression of Will Ferrell's impression of Harry Caray (though by virtue of not being Tim McCarver, Holland was a breath of fresh air during the broadcast regardless of the accuracy of his impression). Otherwise, the only time I've seen the Series trend was earlier this afternoon, when "Game 6 of the World Series" trended...because it has been postponed due to the forecast. Given how little interest Twitter has shown in the Series, I'm surprised it not taking place merited such a reaction.
As for the games themselves, I tip my cap to Albert Pujols for bashing three homeruns in Game Four and I suspect that now that Nolan Ryan must feel comfortable about his pitching staff, they'll make a concentrated effort to shore up their defense in the off-season and throughout spring training.
It's back, y'all.
