Canadian League Baseball: Week 11 Summary

More fake ballin’, yo.

06-16-2019

The NL West has a tight race right now. Poor Expos, though, haha.

Bros that cling together…

…swing together.

Human determination at its finest.

The real bro is that tree limb, though.

I need to post more stuff on Tumblr.

Why? Because every time I go to my Tumblr page, this damn post is right there and I subsequently have to go watch this and get it stuck in my head for hours:

Remember AlbinoBlackSheep? Fun times.

WASHINGTON, YO

AWWWWWW YEEEEEAHHHHH!

06-13-2019

Gonna play this bad boy right now.

Edit: crap, I started my dude in Tucson, so it’s going to take me a while to get jobs that’ll take me to Washington. Darn, I guess I’ll have to truck more.

EIGHTY POOPS

I feel like crap and am super stressed about everything (what else is new?), so have a link to an interesting music project.

Sorry I’m so boring.

I just had the weirdest fucking dream about waffles

‘Cause why not, right, brain?

Anyway, in my dream, CNN did this big story about how someone (it was heavily implied that it was Trump) was putting microscopic GPS trackers in Eggo waffles which, once consumed, were used to track where people went for the rest of their lives.

(Why the waffle got digested/pooped out but the GPS trackers did not was never explained.)

The German government got involved (?) because they were pissed at the fact that America was getting all this attention for mini waffle-engulfed GPS trackers but in fact Germany had been doing this for years and could prove this by showing a complex map of all the German citizens that had been tracked by said mini waffle-engulfed GPS trackers.

Then Steven Spielberg comes out of nowhere, saying that the mini waffle-engulfed GPS trackers was his idea: he used it in Jaws to keep track of the shark while they were filming.

(‘Cause the shark in Jaws was totally real, y’all.)

I don’t remember much after that, but seriously, brain?

 

UGH, COLDPLAY

This is beautiful and I want it played at my funeral.

Parts that made me cry: 0:00-6:30 (not even kidding; every single one of these songs is attached to an important memory/time in my life)

I love Coldplay, yo. Love them.

 

Canadian League Baseball: Week 10 Summary

We’re ten weeks into the (fake) season! Here’s what’s what:

06-09-2019

Simulation Adrian Gonzalez got his 2,000th hit, so that’s kinda cool.

Simulation Matz is hurt, though, so that’s not cool at all. ALL THE SIMULATED METS PLAYERS ARE HURT WHAT THE FREAKING CRAPPLES

Zoo!

We took my mom to the Calgary Zoo today, and unlike the last time I was at the zoo, I actually documented this trip with more than just a single video of butterflies. OBSERVE!

06-08-2019-a06-08-2019-b06-08-2019-c06-08-2019-d06-08-2019-e06-08-2019-f06-08-2019-g06-08-2019-h

Also, here’s the peacock in action.

FRISSON TIME

Here’s Bach’s Air on the G String on an organ.

It is sublime.

Put on your best headphones and crank it. 1:05 is probably one of the most beautiful sounds I’ve ever heard. Chills forever.

Edit: OH JESUS, I JUST LISTENED TO THIS THING ON THE SENNHEISERS AND I HAVE ASCENDED

MOAR SPEED

Ahoy-hoy!

So guess what? Today was the first time since I’ve gotten injured that I walked a mile in under 14 minutes.*

I actually walked two separate miles in under 14 minutes, so that’s even cooler.

I was so pumped, yo. I’m finally getting some speed back. It’s been almost two years. And now that I’ve got the Garmin, I know that that speed is legitimate and not just due to a miscalculation in my stride length.

*Last year I posted a shot of my speed being 4.50 MPH, but that was WRONG because it was based on an incorrect stride length. I think this time is really the first time I’ve done a sub-14 minute mile.

Also, I still think these out-of-order signs at North Hill Mall are (unintentionally?) hilarious.

Spin Cycle

I should not be laughing at this, but oh my god, I am.

I am a bad person. I hope she’s okay.

Don’t Be Rash

So for the past half month or so (or longer?) I’ve been getting this weird rash on my upper arms. It started just on one arm, which made me think I was brushing against something I was allergic to while on my walks, but then it started showing up on my other arm. Now it’s starting to spread to my lower arms. It itches like hell (sometimes) and looks pretty terrible.

So that’s awesome. As if I need help looking like complete trash.

Canadian League Baseball: Week 9 Summary

FAKEBALL IS HERE ON SUNDAY SUNDAY SUNDAYS!!!!

(Sorry, I’m hyper)

Here’s the standings after nine weeks:

06-02-2019

It’s going to be interesting to see if there’s less separation between the team performances than there was in real life in 2017 due to the fact that the super talented players are more spread out across all the teams instead of with the teams with the most money. We’ll see!

Well, that’s great.

My mom’s here one night and someone broke into her van and stole a bunch of her stuff.

They smashed the window overnight and grabbed two of her backpacks full of stuff.

‘Cause people suck.

HOORAY FOR JUNE

MY MOM IS HERE, YAY

And for once, she’s not just staying for a few days. She’s here for the whole month of June! She got an Airbnb place that is like a block away from us.

It’s super awesome. I’m excited.

NEW JAMS SORRY

I can’t help it if I find good music, yo. Y’all are just going to have to deal with the music blog posts sometimes.

TODAY’S INSTALLMENT:

VOCES8 is my new favorite thing.

iThings?!?

OOOOOOOOOOOO WHAT’S THIS

Do I need one? No. Not right now. But I know I’ll need one at some point, once my current one’s battery bites it due to too many walks in freezing cold weather. I was worried that Apple would discontinue their iPods due to the fact that their phones do everything that the iPods do and more. But as this article points out, iPods are good for the demographic that can’t afford the phones and/or don’t want to deal with smart phones but still want a music player that can connect to wifi.

So yay! I’m glad there’s at least one more iteration.

MIGRAINE PARTY 2K19

It’s been a little while since I’ve had a migraine, but it’s been quite some time since I’ve had a migraine as bad as the one I had today.

Lately* my migraines have involved short (10-15 minutes) periods of mild vision loss with either no actual migraine headache following the restoration of vision or a relatively “mild” headache instead.

But today’s migraine was rough. My vision was almost completely gone for half an hour or so and then I got a killer headache afterwards. It was gross. It certainly made it hard to work, haha.

And now I have the post-migraine “fuzzies” where I feel like I’m in a bit of a fog. Not sure if that’s from the migraine itself or the meds, though.

Either way, BLAH.

*I really haven’t had very many lately…three or so in the past few years?
