Site: We're no processing applications for publishers at this time.

Me: Oh, okay. Since by the time you do get around to processing applications, my site will no longer be active, I'm going to go ahead and do this.

Missing the Ohio GOP Senate debate on the local TV station, but I'd be willing to be there will be enough from Bernie Moreno to make me wonder again why his name is still on stuff at my alma mater, Cleveland State.

Ah yes, that glorious chorus of calling for secession from the same folks who brought you "If you don't like this country, get out!"

Seems like having the conflicting thoughts in your head for long enough would cause a concussion. But I'm not a brain surgeon.

You'd have thought after a financial crisis that caused a boatload of foreclosures, people would have come to realize that they're infinitely more likely to be poor and homeless than it is they'll be rich.

But nope. For too many, it's still fuck the poors, with policies in place to reinforce that.

Me, hitting the "I Don't Like This Ad" button on the America First Legal Ad on the Ex-Bird Site multiple times: I REALLY don't want to see this ad!

The Ex-Bird Site: We don't give a shit. Here it is again!

On LinkedIn, I get a message from a "Louna Svensson." About an hour later, I get a message from an "Iris Svensson." They say the same thing, have the same job titles and everything. Obvious spam, right?

Not according to LI, who said it wasn't after I reported both of them.

Um...'kay...

It's been nearly 35 years since I last saw the video for REM's Pop Song 89. I looked it up on YouTube the other day, and found out there's an uncensored version of the video?

Beyond that, it's a great and highly underrated REM tune.

I have decided that if I'm approached by someone asking me what I'd do in some bullshit mythical "What If..?" scenario, I will answer this as if it's a test to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Spoiler alert: At least one Avenger will be a part of my answer.

When I think about the people who want to shape society for the worst, I'm reminded that they're the same folks I thought were assholes in high school before they had a political ideology.

I don't know how to manage that. I couldn't handle those motherfuckers then. What makes you think I can now?

I'm beginning to think that 2024 may very well end up being the year where I look at all my social media accounts, say, "fuck all this shit," delete them all, and ride off into the fucking sunset.

Elon's comments on John Oliver's beatdown of him has apparently changed the current definition of "wokeness" to "being mean to me because I've been a complete douchebag."

I expect this definition to change after the New Year.

Finally got around to seeing the Barbie movie.

Now I can see why dudebros and the right-wing Borg lost their shit about it, which makes it all the funnier to me.

Plus, you can't go wrong with Kate McKinnon and Will Ferrell being in it.

One of my long-standing pet peeves has been posts/threads/essays/etc. that go through a laundry list and/or history of things that are going/have gone wrong. The subject can be anything, too, like politics, media, business, etc. And never do I read a solution as a part of these diatribes.

Wait. People are feeling some type of way about Microsoft Word warning about language?

Jesus, just hit Ignore or use Google Docs and call it a day! Fucking crybabies!

For years on the Ex-Bird Site, I had always flirted with the idea of live-tweeting my viewing of Kirk Cameron's Saving Christmas. Now that I've found that dumpster fire everywhere and I can cross-post on Spoutible, Mastodon and Bluesky...I'm contemplating it again...

As we witness yet another episode in what I've described as the Azkaban prison break over at the Ex-Bird Site, I'm always struck by the number of people who stay to fight on.

Fight for what, though? The dwindling amount of attention that this site and, by extension, you gain from it?

I learned today that Deshaun Bros are a thing among Browns fandom, and comprise of a lot of folks who thought Baker Bros were extra.

Shoe block notwithstanding, Purdue Fort Wayne's string of wins have it both with its hottest start in 30 years and high up in the NET rankings. Bob McDonald has the story. #HLMBB

I guess I'll try out this new cross-posting to Bluesky and Mastodon thing by posting the piece I wrote making the argument for Drexel to go to the Horizon League.

Green Bay came close to taking yet another #HLWBB crown last season. With another strong squad, the Phoenix will look to get over the top this year.

Daniyal Robinson had the best debut season of any Cleveland State coach in school history. The Vikings want even more this year, specifically the #HLMBB title.
