Netflix re-did it.
The same: Character names, family is in space, didn’t make it to Alpha Centauri.
What’s different: Everything else
They took the most basic parts of it, and ran with it. I started watching expecting it to be as bad as the movie was and maybe it was those incredibly low expectations, but it’s actually pretty good. Two seasons in with one to go.

I did get a volunteer who can help with those, at least partially, but IMO what we ideally need is to have two and an alternate who can fill in when the other two have a schedule conflict. Going day after day after day, all the while knowing that if you miss, there will be a blank spot wears folks down after several months.

As far as the Huddle requirements go, a qualified candidate must be able to:

Turn in your posts as per the routine you agreed to fill
Find links to Chiefs and KC-related sports stories
Fill in the form

You will not be asked to

Get up early (Huddles have been assembled the night before since Sporting stepped down)
Provide original writing (that’s up to your taste)

Everything else is a matter of discussion and getting everyone involved decent fits.

Another person to help wrangle OTs would still be great, especially if you are willing to pick up more than one per week. There really isn’t all that much to it, since OTs are pretty free-form posts without a set length requirement, and that would free up some time for those of us who do OTs as well as other things. I don’t like the OT Huddles being a thing, either, and really, AG would be better off if I weren’t producing any OT fillers at all, other than the Afternights. I have some columns to resurrect and I still need to rally help there, though I still have some who plan on being involved with WTW. Adding a primary writing partner there would help a lot, since last year everyone was basically part-timing it.

02/22/2021 6:53 pm

Frustrating day so far, though not severely so. Spent the last few hours surveying some statistics and crunching some numbers in them on a topic that few discuss, if any. That was for an email, but there might be an article there, eventually.

I’m growing tired of returning to the SBLV OL topic, so I’m going to try to lay a view on that out as simply as I can manage.

Nobody I know of has been saying that our OL played well enough in that game.
Nobody I know of has been saying that KC needs to retain every OL who was under contract last season.
Nobody I know of has been opposed to drafting an OL guy or otherwise improving the roster for next year from outside the team.

OTOH…
Lots of people are still angry at those players
Lots of people want them all replaced as, I dunno, “the intelligent thing to do”, I guess, and sometimes that seem to extend to every OL player who we had under contract last year needing to never play another snap in KC (hard to say, since I don’t recall seeing any arguments from that group that there are players in that pool that KC would be foolish to cut).
Lots of people resenting opinions that run contrary to bagging on the OL, and using words suited to making the resentment clear to those holding those opinions.

You want to hate on our players and blame them for being unable to do things that any OL in league history would have been hard-pressed to do under similar circumstances, if they could’ve done them at all, that’s you. I’d just as soon not firing any of our promising young players, such as Allegretti or returning vets as with LDT. Throwing the baby out with the bathwater remains a bad idea.

Now, that’s the end of my interest in those topics for today. Those are my views of things and opinions and I stated them for clarity, not as an invitation to try to change my mind on any of them.

That this comment is unpopular is not unexpected, but something unplanned-for has occurred to me. The opinions are unpopular enough to merit a DV, and you know what? I’m cool with that. But presuming that those DVs came from specific disagreement with points I stated, OR it was more my likewise emotional sum-up, I’m actually interested in finding how much of each, and the specific whys of each, if though could be delivered as an honest attempt to see through your eyes. I mean that, because I know that my ability to build bridges between my POV and those more mainstream is still tenuous – although in this case “tenuous” should not be interpreted as ‘fragile’. My gains to date can’t be broken or degraded, only improved upon.

If you are willing to treat this incident as a matter of miscommunication, rather than you or me being a dirty so-and-so, I’d very much like to talk to you via email, to see if we can figure out where the misunderstandings came from. To help me understand how what we said and what we meant lined up, when compared to what we heard from each other, if that makes sense. If your disagreement with the above can, in your own estimation, be laid out without any sort of bias against me and for the purpose of helping me see, I invite you to my email. Privacy assured and presumed, but you must also be willing to try to see my side of it, because without that the alignment can’t connect. Please, and thank you in advance.

Possibly Rush’s greatest live performance, including a nearly-complete “2112” and both parts of “Cygnus X-1.”

https://www.youtube.com/watch?t=156&v=9iFG7M1LC1Y

“Do you understand English? Move. Back.”

It isn’t showing up right because the timestamp is in there (I linked it to start at “Anthem,” so you don’t have to sit through the intro), but I promise it’s worth the two hour length.
