  1. Pod Save the World (Tommy Vietor of Pod Save America/Keeping it 1600) is new and has been really good, particularly the second episode (Half the World with Dan Restrepo).
  2. Nolan tied for the richest deal ever, $20 million guaranteed + 20% of all box office

  6. That cover is boring as hell
  7. This whole CD is so damn good
  8. NBA

    The '72 Dolphins did (but with a shorter season).
  9. It was very good, written a lot like a novel rather than traditional non-fiction. My only knock on it is that the translation can be clunky in parts. My into to the book was from here: http://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2015/05/25/the-inexplicable?mbid=social_facebook (Which was also my intro to Knausgaard)
  10. Books I have finished recently:One of Us: The Story of Anders Breivik and the Massacre in Norway - Asne SeierstadMy Struggle Volume 1 - Karl Ove Knausgaard My Struggle Volume 2 - Karl Ove Knausgaard Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief - Lawrence Wright Gene: An Intimate History - Siddhartha Mukherjee Currently working on: The Making of the Atomic Bomb - Richard Rhodes
  11. The last time I saw them they played back-to-back nights at a 2,500 seat place (Marquee Theater, Tempe AZ). I think it was late 2005 and they played with Underoath. How the times have changed.
  12. How big are the venues they have been playing this tour?
  13. I saw on Billboard that TBEITBN moved 21,000 units on the first week. Does anyone know how many units TAITA or Vheissu moved? Edit: Vheissu moved 46,000 and TAITA was 47,000... Yikes TBEITBN is way down from that.
  14. http://opinionator.blogs.nytimes.com/2011/07/10/remembrance-of-message-boards-past/?_r=0
  15. All this talk of The Devil and God... made me realize that it got lost from my iTunes sometime in the last decade (yikes), anyone want to up it for me?
