The Lounge Where We Look for Something to Believe In. 433

So I have been thinking about twitter account to post some bed thoughts. Mostly to see what would happen.

I don’t know what to do about it. like what would be a good handle, should the profile link back here etc.

So anyway, are you in it? what are your thoughts?

Hopefully this should distract us from the unpleasantness of:

I have $5. No I don\'t.

    I’m alone with the boy tonight, and having a “Go the FK to sleep” moment. He’s been in his crib yammering to himself for 45 minutes, and I strongly suspect his pacifier has been thrown from the crib (usually we have like 3 in there, so he can find one and soothe himself, but I could only find 1 at the time).

    Option 1. Go in and deliver more pacifiers. Upside: He goes the FK to sleep. Downside: He might freak out when I leave the room again.

    Option 2. Do nothing. Upside: He goes the FK to sleep. Downside: He doesn’t ever go the FK to sleep.

    Option 3. Wait until he actually starts crying, then go in and deliver pacifiers. Upside: He goes the FK to sleep, possibly without my intervention. Downside: He may be really difficult to settle down once he’s that worked up.

    Option 4. Trade him to the Blue Jays for a stuffed monkey, a cup of coffee and a wagon wheel.

    Other options?

    • Jennifer Jennifer Nov 29,2014 6:48 pm || Up

      Arm crawl into the dark room and throw a pacifier into the crib like a grenade.

      • Glorious Mundy Glorious Mundy Nov 29,2014 6:50 pm || Up

        Pretty sure I’ve done this one.

      • oblique Nov 29,2014 6:52 pm || Up

        A possibility. I think he may have gone to sleep in the last 5 minutes…

        • Future Ed Future Ed Nov 29,2014 6:54 pm || Up

          good work

          I have $5. No I don\'t.
          • oblique Nov 29,2014 6:57 pm || Up

            Thanks – that was option 2, so I’m not sure I get much credit! Now the question is, do I wait till mid-cycle and sneak in to deliver more pacifiers? I’m thinking “yes” but it would not be without risk.

            • Glorious Mundy Glorious Mundy Nov 29,2014 6:58 pm || Up

              Definitely. The payoff is too large not to.

    • Glorious Mundy Glorious Mundy Nov 29,2014 6:48 pm || Up

      5. Go in, deliver pacifiers, and then sit in there until he crashes.

      6. Go in there, stick a pacifier in his mouth, rock him to sleep.

      • oblique Nov 29,2014 6:53 pm || Up

        5 may work. 6 .. he gets very indignant when anyone tries to rock him to sleep, but the equivalent is to put him in a carrier and bounce for a while. Then the transfer is the tricky part.

        • Glorious Mundy Glorious Mundy Nov 29,2014 6:54 pm || Up

          The transfer is very awkward. Women seem to be better at it than men.

    • Future Ed Future Ed Nov 29,2014 6:48 pm || Up

      have you done the slowly back away thing?

      Where you go in with pacifiers, sooth fir a minute. then stand a foot away, for a minute then a few feet more, etc till you are gone.

      Use reassuring touches when he cries at first, then your voice then leave?

      I have $5. No I don\'t.
      • oblique Nov 29,2014 6:55 pm || Up

        Could work – haven’t tried it b/c so far he flips out as soon as he’s in the crib, and I haven’t figured out how to soothe him in that state (without picking him up). Partially because I haven’t had to; for the last 6-7 months, we could consistently just put him in and leave, but he’s got a cold now so that makes things harder..

      Man, what a shitshow. When the defense plays this bad the Raiders are easily the worst team in the league.

      They should have played McGloin the whole 2nd half. Carr wasn’t the only problem but he was still horrible; he needs to sit and watch and come back next week.

    I think Harbaugh is a really good coach but if I’m the Raiders I’m not sure I’d give up draft picks for him. This team needs all the picks they can get we just need someone smarter making the picks.

      Agreed here. When you need many many MANY players losing your chance to get good ones is a bad idea.

      I was thinking about this though, in a world where retread coaches are the norm, how is it possible to have 4-5 coaches in a row that more than likely will never get a HC gig again in the NFL. Am I missing anyone here?

    Outside of the San Diego game, I have yet to see really anything from Carr that says he will be anything more than an average quarterback.

    Mariota at least has the tools to be a superstar.

    While trading the number one pick for a bounty of selections is ideal, drafting Mariota should be a no brainer for a franchise that is so helpless lost with no direction whatsoever.

    Man, that game was tough!

    • Bed Bed Nov 30,2014 6:10 pm || Up

      I’d like to see what he can do with better coaching and talent around him. I am concerned about the fact that he really struggles to complete passes that aren’t out of the 3 step drop. His yards per attempt is 33rd in the NFL at only 5.54. That’s really awful.

    • AV AV Dec 1,2014 5:00 pm || Up

      i’ve also been thinking MLS kits. it needs some iconic ones, is my thought. something to cement a few teams in the populace’s imagination. same way that the average person in europe might not know the infield fly rule but would recognize a yankee cap as A) baseball and B) if not the team at least the city it comes from. it’s not really happening that way with MLS kits though.

      not sure if it’s a function of not enough time for tradition to build up, or that the kits themselves don’t carry a necessary iconicism (too many little stripelets and details that change from year to year… even colors. is FC dallas red horizontal stripes, or blue ones? or both?? or one of each??? just pick a pattern already!!). there really isn’t a kit that a non-soccer USian would look at once and recognize. mmmmmaybe LA’s blue diagonal?* but it’s not cemented yet, not like river’s red diagonal. or any of the other teams that even if you don’t follow that country you know at a glance… milan, inter, united, arsenal, real madrid, blaugranes, boca, chivas…

      they should really sit down with a cocktail napkin and work on that aspect, create a throughline for kits, relying on color and maybe one thing that the team’s going to use forever (stripes, or the diagonal, or a color), and take off anything that distracts from that (such as the fade over the body, or the mini arm stripe, or even the watermark) and stick with it until the brand is cemented. (i realize this is just some guy who did it, not actual MLS, but i say his spirit betrays a little bit of MLS’s misguidedness too.)

      * i’m refusing to admit the most iconic kit is the red bulls logo. gah!

      • Glorious Mundy Glorious Mundy Dec 1,2014 5:12 pm || Up

        Part of the problem is that the league signed a deal with Adidas to design all of the kits, so they all kind of look alike, albeit with their own club-specific elements. I think they were trying to make the get ups look more obviously “soccery” after the a period following the league’s launch where things were pretty garish. Now they’ve swung the other way, making it too conservative and too much of a Euro copy.

        I wouldn’t mind seeing, for example, the KC third kit become more of the standard. Or seeing the Galaxy go back to their original, pre-Beckham logo. A little bit of pizzazz is needed to stick in the mind.

        • AV AV Dec 1,2014 8:00 pm || Up

          makes sense it’s one group designing all of these.

          i was hoping for plainer, like DC united when it didn’t have red on the sleeves (oh you know i meant this one). so argyle is an angle i didn’t expect. but i’m not against it if they stick with it. a pattern could carry out with a few teams. timbers, lumberjack plaid? but we still want some solids and some traditional soccer patterns. i think i want earthquakes in their current colors but vertical stripes. inter, a touch more electric.

            Yes, Ben Nelson. He was very much posturing as the 60th vote and pushing ACA policy to the right.

            On student loan reform, Obama did pretty darn well (income-based repayment, cutting out middlemen, etc.). I think bankruptcy would have been very controversial because nearly every graduating student who used debt to fund their education would be able to demonstrate bankruptcy. I’m not even sure I support it. Repayment assistance makes a lot more sense to me. I suspect if you’ve lost me, you’ve also lost Ben Nelson and Joe Lieberman. Heck, probably also Schumer.

            “Reasonable” refinancing certainly sounds like a great policy, but I’d need to better understand what you mean beyond what HARP did/does in order to really respond.

        honest question from a nonplayer to someone who actually laces them on, was cahill’s more technically difficult or better executed than VP’s?

        *i’m* AV. alex vause. put this loon in psych before she hurts someone.
        • MikeV MikeV Dec 3,2014 2:06 pm || Up

          For me yes – several reasons.

          A. For the most part headers are an “easier” skill than volleys. Granted, diving headers are tougher etc but a full volley is one of the hardest things to do in the sport IMO.

          2. The situations surrounding each goal. RVP’s was one of a 5-1 demolishing of Spain in group play and he basically had a free run up the gut for the header and realistically could have brought the ball down and tapped it past the GK to score, Cahill had 2 defenders in the box and had to let the ball come across his body, time the hit, AND get it on frame/past the GK which is frankly a LOT harder on a volley than a header.

          D. Cahill is not a lefty. That was with his weak foot.

          And I have to say: mikev is one of my favorite people on here -slusser.

          Thanks, and go As.

          • Glorious Mundy Glorious Mundy Dec 3,2014 2:13 pm || Up

            I’d say context favors RVP. The final score was a demolition, but Holland was down a goal when he scored that. And yeah, Spain had a bad cup, but they were still the defending champs and things only started to turn bad with this goal.

            I would also say, without disputing that Cahill’s was technically more difficult, that RVP’s gets points for its sheer beauty. I might put James’ goal against Uruguay above Cahill’s for the same reason.

            • MikeV MikeV Dec 3,2014 2:20 pm || Up

              Cahill’s goal was directly after kickoff after a Netherlands goal, for context.

              I disagree on the beauty part, I’ll take a volley over a diving header every day.

              James’ goal was nice but I don’t even think that was his best of the tournament.

              also I thought it was funny that the Camilo Sanvezzo goal was nominated by FIFA but not by MLS as goal of the year

              And I have to say: mikev is one of my favorite people on here -slusser.

              Thanks, and go As.

          • AV AV Dec 3,2014 2:34 pm || Up

            i’d buy all that. like, i do admire that cahill didn’t have to stop the ball first and then shoot. didn’t even think of what footedness he is…

            but i always think of headers as generally directionable. like, you can aim it within 10 degrees of accuracy, but not more than that. and kicks as highly directionable (barring that you just suck or hit it wrong), with “tres dedos” accuracy plus the ability to put effect on the ball.

            and i remember thinking at the time of VP’s goal about how he aimed it as accurate as a kick, to get the lob and the corner of the goal, rendering casillas moot, whereas most headers like that would have been the typical “aim somewhere toward the goal, bounce it along side of the goalie, and hope that’s enough that he can’t stop it.” so the execution of VP’s still sticks in my mind. not to mention when that goal came, which GM covered.

There’s only one John Osbourne — OK, that’s a common name and there are likely thousands of John Osbournes — but there is only ONE Ozzy. Blog with us now for a very tasty hour-long set from down the decades… that’s correct, it’s a PAL DVD of Heavy Metal heroes Black Sabbath, with the man himself out front at the tender age of 22, touring their PARANOID platter through Europe at Christmas of 1970!! This show is so heavy I had to hire the Santini Brothers to lift it onto the Internet!!
