Who likes words?

It's officially the NBA midseason mark, which meant that I got to make an "awards" column where I could dump all my thoughts about the season so far, which is always a lot of fun. Also, I was able to essentially write one column and put it on two websites, which is always a plus. The Cavs-centric awards column is up here, with the Laker-centric one awaiting clearance from the heavens. Seriously, I really like these posts-you get a FD-esque ode to the greatness of Baron Davis to a statistics-driven vitrolic rant on Kevin Durant. Go. Click the link. Do it. You might even get a post on TV or football if you do.

Yet More Goodness.

New FreeDarko post for all of you to enjoy. Also, I hope you liked that Fischer piece but would like some feedback on it, so forward it to your friends, hype it up, do something, because I worked really hard on that post and want it to be seen.

The aformentioned uber-post is up

It's on the Last Page at MVN- here da link. It's long, rambling, and a little crazy, and deals with one of my pet theories/opinions, but I think it could be the best post I've ever done. Then again, I thought that Gatsby piece was good too, and Woody Allen thinks his best movie was Stardust Memories, which sucks. Anyways, read it and say nice things about it.

I'm Back!

New Post on SportsHub!

Sorry for the absence, folks. I had weird shit going on from all angles. Thanks for sticking around. Anyways, that post is just the tip O' the iceberg-I've found my swagger again and have an MVN post that should be up tomorrow, a FreeDarko post that's in development hell, and a Magnum Opus post that I finished tonight and am trying to find distribution for. All I'll say about it now is:

-It illustrates one of my favorite theses/themes

-It's 3,000 words long

-It mainly deals with boxing and chess

-The conclusion sucks right now, but I'm going to try to fix it

Are you excited? I am. In the meantime, try and figure out if Silversun Pickups stole their bass line from the Breeders. Also, revel in how awesome the Breeders are. This song was worth 5 hours of the 100 greatest songs of the 90s (which could be its own 3,000 word post.) If my idea for a TV show ever comes true, this is totally going to be the theme song.

Also, have a Fiona Apple song. Again, thank you '90s, although this one wasn't on the countdown.

I'm still here

My SiteMeter says that around 30 of you guys are still here-thanks a ton. Just to explain what's been going on, my Christmas break turned into an illness break-I've been completely out of commission for the last week and a half. New FD draft is in the works, and I've been able to see some Warrior games that I'll have thoughts for soon enough. Again, very sorry for the lack of production and thanks if you've stuck around long enough to read this.
