A Little Daymusic Diversion

 251 replies

Pomp’s back with some more music, this time with a twist. Give it a listen.

While looking for clips for a OT idea I had I stumbled across these guys. I have no idea how I had not seen these before.

It matches nicely the span of my musical interest.

For those unfamiliar, this is what the title references.

That’s the post, the “rondo” is up to you.

[Ed note: And since I promised a twist and Pomp’s might have been missed, here’s a bonus version]

Defensive Coordinator: The Chargers Defense will be undergoing one of the bigger scheme changes this offseason. They used two-high safeties on 31% of their plays last year (32nd) and a one-high safety at the highest rate (76%). Brandon Staley’s Rams were the exact opposite, running two-high looks at the highest rate (77%) and single-high at the lowest (17%) per NextGen Stats. Staley’s setup is far better at stopping the pass and defending the modern offense, and he has the two star defenders (Derwin JamesJoey Bosa) to somewhat replicate what he had with Jalen Ramsey and Aaron Donald.

years and years ago, back in KC, young couple moved in next to my mom’s house … they had a basset, one ear was half missing (they got him that way)

so one day, he gets sick … lethargic, deathly ill looking (more so than usual, which basset’s look like it anyway) and throws up … take him to the vet: nothing, they can’t find anything wrong, he feels better, they take him home

all good for a coupla months, it happens again … to the vet, nothing …

finally the THIRD time it happens, the vet concludes the dog wants attention and is basically a hypochondriac

gotta love bassets

old as I is now, I keep TRYING to find even a half decent part time anything, preferably one that doesn’t start early in the AM … it’s a sad “gig economy” and about the best out there is Door Dash shit (I sometimes Door Mosey, too old to “dash”) … course my car is 25 yrs old, and the more I use it the faster I need to fix stuff, and the doordash pays so little that … ok, I’m a stop now

what, they can’t get a job working on windmills or in the solar industry?

yanno, when I lost my teaching job to a piss poor inflationary economic clusterfuck in 2010 I was told by a whole shitload of wonderful libertarian crusaders at The Other Place (lord I miss Texas Chief) to basically SUCK IT UP and find another job and holy shit, ups, that’s the way it goes and the world doesn’t own you (me) a damned thing

so, ummmmmmmmmmmmmm … if that was true for me, and if it’s true for ANYONE, why isn’t it true for workers in the oil biz?

and since the love of money is the root of all evil, and the number 666 is SUPPOSEDLY equated with evil, then the square root of 666, approximately 25.8069758011 is theoretically equal to the the love of money (it’s MATH!)

hate to say it, but I have little sympathy for those who choose to live in what some of us in Colorado (and elsewhere, no doubt) call Stupid Zones … ie, remote areas that are prone to fires, and then want everyone else’s money and help for CHOOSING to do something “stupid”

now, I get it: some people don’t have a choice, some have been in places for so long it’s unrealistic to expect them to move and obviously many can’t (economics, etc etc ad nauseum)

but those who CHOOSE to spend a coupla few million to deliberately live in a place that they know full well is likely to burn to the ground is just plain irresponsible (IMO)

NOW! look at Texas … they COULD have winterized the whole damned state for a coupla billion back in the day … instead it’s NOW! gonna cost a good 20 billion in insurance claims (and guess who pays more insurance? ALL of us!) and that’s JUST for Texas … so yeah, thanks ERCOT
