This episode, like this whole season, has had tons of flaws,, but I was really, really excited for this episode to end on that shot of June at the center of the supermarket chaos, with nothing but muzak in the background. It would have been a perfect, stark final shot (again, nonwithstanding all of this episode’s…
Also in memoriam / en mémoire
I once met a group of bike kids by Grand Army Plaza, and they were nice enough to let me photograph them (I had my old film camera with me.) They were super friendly and cool, and we traded Instagram information. Go fuck yourself.
Why is the short and giant-fisted Konerko statue...
a) Shorter than IRL Konerko?
c) Doing the hokey-pokey?
Just gonna leave this here
Remember three years ago when the Yankees were bad? Those spells don’t happen very often, and we didn’t appreciate the last one nearly enough.
Sorry, what I meant to say was, when does Wahlberg
do acting go to a soundstage in LA to say “where did Donny go? Is he a Transformah on the fackin’ Planet of the Apes?”
When does Wahlberg do acting?

Tom Wahl’s and Connecticut
I’ve heard Western NYers refer to Tom Wahl’s burgers as “god mode,” but they’re flat, sad and flavorless. See pic below. Culver’s and its fried cheese curds, as Marchman once mentioned on the Deadcast, are severely underrated, and it’s weird that midwesterners don’t wax endlessly about that…
I don’t have kids, but when I was in my teens/early 20s and regularly had to make 6+ hour drives to/from college, that trip was always, without fail, infinitely more hellish with my parents than with my friends.
Also, galaxy brain take, but I’m gonna call it and say that if Eden somehow reports Nick for infidelity or whatever crypto-biblical marital crime Gilead dreams up, he’ll somehow be fine and she’ll be sent to the colonies or forced to become a handmaid. Because Gilead is just that fucking cruel.
Did anyone else catch the brief interplay between Eden and that young dipshit “it’s time for your nap” Guardian? When they’re talking about the jam she made from the California strawberries.
Costco hot dogs have been $1.50 since my mom first took me to the New Rochelle NY Price Club when I was about 7. I’m a grown-ass adult now, and I’m thankful every single day that a (pretty good) hot dog is the single most constant thing in my life.
Can confirm Big Alice Brewing in Queens has both of these things. I’m sure I’ve been to some other NYC bars than can claim this, but I can’t think of them at the moment because there are definitely not enough of them.
RIP Matt Clement
It’s obviously good that DACA recipients are receiving $33 million, but think of how much more money the underprivileged would have if Bezos didn’t pay Amazon employees nominal wages while working them like dogs, or if he didn’t try to dodge taxes by pitting America’s cities against each other in a battle royale for…
They blew a real golden opportunity by not naming it Pseudotrichonympha geddi.
