Mr. Bungle – The Air Conditioned Nightmare

i'm currently having the opposite problem as our house doesn't seem to be keeping heat. after spending SO MUCH [redacted] [redacted] TIME trying to wrap all the windows (dear lord, is that what my parents went through?), it'd better work.

Game 149 Recap: Willinghammer

Twins 6, Indians 4
WP: Hendricks (1-7 5.88) LP: McAllister (5-8 4.31)
Save?!? Youbetcha. Perkins (13)

Holy cats. A save on a Wednesday is like the smell of napalm in the morning. I love it. The king of the savers race is heating up. We have three potential kings within 3 saves of each other. Of course they're all from the AL East, but we won't hold that against them. Or will we? Jim Johnson is holding the top spot with 45 saves recorded, but nipping at his heels is the absolutely dominant Fernando Rodney. That dude has been lights out this season, but the rules of the King of the Savers award dictate that player with the most number of saves recorded, no matter how ugly, is the champ. I'll feel for the Fernando if I have to crown someone else. Some other dude in NY has 42 saves.


The Willing hammer had a hell of a night at the dish. He went 4-5 with a home run racking up 4 rbi (at least one of them was of the 2 out variety). Meanwhile, Joe Mauer was content with a hit, a walk, and 3 runners left on base. puss. It didn't matter though, the hammer was willing and Liam got his grove back, and by grove I mean his first win evah(!). Congrats to the kid. Hendricks tossed 6 innings allowing two hits, walking two, striking out two, and surrendering 2 earned runs.


Culture Club: I promised a tour of the alternative spaces of New Orleans, so I guess that's what we should do. Way down St. Claude Street you'll find a bunch of young folks doing great and arty things. Before you get all the way down there I suggest you start with some pastries from Shake Sugary. I suggest the maple bacon sweet potato biscuits. Seriously. Really. Yeah. You'll likely need a nap, and after that you should start at the front. These young folks operate an excellent co-op art gallery featuring some great art from New Orleans and abroad. Across the street lies The Good Children Gallery who are also producing exhibitions of timely and engaging contemporary art from almost everywhere. As you head back towards the city I suggest stopping off at the New Orleans Healing Center which features art galleries, vendors, a co-op, cafe and good vibrations. Directly across the street from them lies the UNO art gallery which features the work relating to UNO's art department. Off the path a bit lies Press street and Antenna Gallery. From their site, the mission is to produce risk-taking solo and group exhibitions that engage and interact with the New Orleans community. I've really enjoyed the projects these folks have put together, and am anxiously awaiting the opening of their new facility later this fall. Press Street is a 501c3 set up to support visual a literary art in New Orleans. They've published poetry and prose, non-fiction, offer learn to be a dj classes, and host a 24 hour drawathon for arts education. Good folks, those. You're probably thirsty, and you're close (ish) to the quarter. I highly suggest you stop off almost anywhere on Frenchmans street, but my favorite is Snug Harbor. Stick around for the jazz and eat from the vendors, you won't be disappointed.

Game 117 Recap: Boys, the Twins aren’t going to make the playoffs.

Twins 1, Tigers 5

WP: Scherzer (12-6 4.41 era)
LP: De Vries (2-4 5.09 era)
Save? No need, fellas.

Twins record 50-67 - 14 games out of first, 1 game behind the royals for the toilet bowl

Well, poop.

Well, King Felix pitched a perfect game today. He pitched 9 innings, gave up zero hits, zero walks, zero runs, none earned, and struck out 12. Yeah, that's pretty outstanding. Cole De Vries didn't pitch a perfect game. He went four innings giving up eight hits, four runs, all earned, two walks, while striking out three. On the bright side, Manship pitched the next three innings nearly perfectly allowing just one hit and striking out two. Grey surrendered a run on two hits, and Perkins finished out the game. Joe Mauer went 2-4 and drove in the only Twins run on the day. He raised his average to .320, but he's got a ways to go to catch Melky Cabrera. Oh, right. That dude plays in the other league.

Return of the culture club, NOLA edition. Yeah, I've been so busy moving, working, commuting, quitting my job, and eating sweet, delicious pork products that I've neglected my recap duties. I'm here to say that it'll certainly happen again. Where to start? Well, you should probably have a beignet or three for breakfast, and then make your way up to city park to stop in at NOMA. The New Orleans Museum of Art boasts an awesome collection of everything New Orleans from 18 and 19th century portraits and colonial furniture to contemporary conceptual art. After a quick tour of their collection I suggest a stop by the Cow Bell for burger. You won't be disappointed. A stroll down oak street will help digestion and will give you an excuse to stop in at Blue Cypress Books. Bookstore kitty is friendly, and they have a pretty awesome selection of new and used books for sale. A stop into the Maple Leaf would probably be a good idea, but you really should just come back at night to catch the live show. An afternoon stroll down Julia Street will offer a wide taste of contemporary art from the crazy expensive to the quite affordable, stodgy to cutting edge (read: garish), representational to abstract. The newly minted arts district has something for everyone. Afterwards you're a short walk to the WWII Museum, the Ogden Museum, and the Contemporary Art Center. After all that culture you're sure to be thirsty and any number of watering holes in the area will do, but the Avenue Pub features a killer tap list and some of the best pub food you can find anywhere. The best part of drinking and eating at the Avenue is that the street car will drop you off and pick you up just a few steps from their front door, and they never close. Seriously. Try the duck fat fries... with pulled pork... and cheese... /drool. At this point I suggest you get a daiquiri and then pass out. Next week we'll venture down St. Claude street into the by-water to tour the alternative art spaces.

Game # Who Cares: Turds V. Hosiery

Twins: Not even close, Pale Hose: Way too many
LP: Yeah
WP: Is anyone actually reading this?
Save? Heh. Right.

Cole De Vries was too depressed to live journal after the game, you guys. That's how bad this game was. Nick Blackburn burnt the last of his remaining bridges. I guess that's a positive, right?!?

Culture Club: The Cochon Butcher. The BBQ pork sandwich is better than any art I've ever seen. Ask DPWY. In all seriousness, I raved about this sandwich for weeks after I first devoured one in March. Dr. Chop grew tired of me talking about it. She begged me to stop telling anyone and everyone who would listen that there was this mystical sandwich made from a wonderful, magical animal in New Orleans. Then she had the opportunity to eat this delight and said to me, "you undersold how good this sandwich is". Seriously, you guys.
