  • This morning, I learned that the lyrics to Nelly’s seminal classic, “Hot in Herre,” actually go, “… ‘girl, I think my butt gettin’ big’”. Am I the only person who spent years thinking that “girl, I think my butt can bend!” was a gloriously odd lyric? This is just such a letdown. It feels as if one of the tentpoles of my psyche has collapsed.
    Thank you all for making every day here feel warm and cozy like Christmas all year round! Sending everyone positive vibes wherever you’re at - you are not alone, there is no one else like you, and you are not a lost cause! That’s worth celebrating!
    I just need to say, I tried to let the 6-year-old win the game of battleship but it’s just inherently a hard game to throw. How am I supposed to know where to NOT guess?
    After back-to-back New Pornographers shows the past two nights, I just realized that the only other band that I’ve seen that many shows of is STRFKR. Why do the bands that tour most frequently with reasonably priced tickets have to have the most NSFW band names? Lol
    TIL that the drummer for Slipknot is Max Weinberg’s son. Yes, the Max Weinberg from the E Street Band and the bandleader for Conan O’Brien. I don’t know much at all about Slipknot but this seemed like something I would have heard about before.
    Monica Martin appears on James Blake's latest album and also appeared onstage with him last night. After singing a couple songs with him, she gracefully exited the stage and James confessed to the audience that her new single "Go Easy, Kid" is probably the best new song he's heard in the last five years. It's a slower ballad that's not super upbeat, but it's very pretty and she has a really nice voice.
    My official ranking of the 16 varities of Oreos I tried on Sunday at the Oreo Potluck, from best to worst: Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie, classic Oreo, Java Chip, Carrot Cake, Peanut Butter, Double Stuf, Golden Double Stuf, Mint, Caramel Coconut, Salted Caramel, Chocolate Marshmallow, Dark Chocolate, Birthday Cake, Chocolate Hazelnut, Team USA, Mega Stuf.

    @Ericj32 I thought they were surprisingly decent! Obviously Oreo creme isn't as smooth and decadent as Nutella, but the flavor felt recognizable.

    @kvetcha I just had another one (guess how many leftovers I took home, haha), and yeah, they just don’t work for me. I think if I bought a pack of them out of curiosity, they’d be good enough that I could force myself to finish them, but after trying so many other flavors, they wouldn’t be in my top ten choices.

    If anything, I actually think I was probably too harsh on chocolate marshmallow initially. Firstly, because the cream filling on them is this disgusting greyish color and secondly, because the bits of marshmallow that are in the cookies were actually kind of hard and got stuck in my teeth. So they were a letdown, but they do actually taste pretty good.
    Is there an Oreo thread? There are so many varieties now. Does anyone have an Oreo ranking of their favorite kinds? Was discussing this with my friends and we’re having an Oreo potluck this weekend to get to the bottom of it.
    Does anyone remember a commercial from years ago (late 90s maybe) about an anti-itch cream (lanacane, neosporin, etc. - something like that) where there’s a woman who warns repeatedly that “you could be scratching to infection”? Spent the past hour or so watching old commercials trying to track it down haha. The closest I’ve found so far was an add called Caldecort, but i’m pretty sure that’s not it.
    Happy Birthday!

    May your day be full of

    Nurk had another great game. Melo got fired up. I just don’t know what the plan is with Powell and Covington (especially Covington).

    Here's another problem I saw: eleven-man rotation. With only a few weeks left in the regular season.

    A sign of desperation.
    Focusing on the fact that Nurkic his best game of the season last night. But I AM starting to seriously believe that we are cursed in some dark, ancient, mysterious way.
    Today isn’t the first day that I’ve had a s’more pop tart, but it’s the first day that I’ve really appreciated how well they actually approximate the taste and texture of a s’more. The slightly burnt edges of the graham cracker. The marshmallow filling that actually has a marshmallow-y texture.

    And you can eat them without building a fire and getting sticky marshmallow all over your hands and face.
    Is anyone else watching the Decemberists' 20th anniversary streaming concerts? First show (of 3) is tonight! Haven't seen the full band live since the Bite of Oregon in 2005 in Waterfront Park. Really looking forward to this as they always seem to miss me when they tour.

    After. It seemed like they were scrambling to figure out the workaround for the VIP session since the zoom didn't work so they just ended up like showing us the zoom call that all the band members and the moderator from KEXP were on, so we could watch it and chat on the mandolin site. They just took breaks throughout the chat to show the recordings of each of the songs.

    The recordings of both the VIP sessions and the shows will be available for rewatch until 4/25 - so you could probably still sign up for the VIP if you want to see it. The songs weren't very long, but the whole VIP session (including the songs) ran for just over an hour. They discussed their pandemic experiences, playing zoom board games and D&D, and answered questions about their music.

    Awesome!! I sprung for the VIP experience on their last tour and got to go in before the show for a couple of songs and a Q&A session, so that’s why I didn’t do VIP this time around. I kept looking at the set list in front of Colin and wondering if they were going to do an encore, but it looks like the last 3 songs were for the VIP.
